Best Way ?
Looking for some information. With Outlook you can have all your
contacts...address, email address, yada, yada, yada. Can I use this
information in to say mail merge with Word and email a letter to the ppl
with email addresses? Or is this better done with a Access?
The reason I ask is that we want to deliver an email to all our clients with
the latest promotions. And want it to be a bit more automated?
Any information or pointers in the right direction would be appreciated.

Using subtract on two shapes accomplishes what i want to do, but when the

No, the "boolean operations", as they're called, do not operate on foreign
objects like bitmaps and controls.
Visio has crop functionality for imported graphics, but it is only
You could draw a small white triangle and give it "no line". Then place it

i'm using activereports in RMS to generate a custome timecard report. for my
timein and timeout colums, the datatype i have assigned to the columns is
vbDate. when I generate the report, the columns only show the date as
mm/dd/yyyy, they do not show the time of day piece for exactly when the
cashier punched in or out. is there any way to change the formatting of this
so that in the report the time shows up? for example, instead of showing
2/6/2005 in the time in column, it would show 2/5/2005 8:00:00 AM.

I'm at a quandry as to what's the best/fastest way to deserialize an
incoming xml stream?
I ran a small test on xmlserializer and on a small file it performed 10
times worse then when I used the XMLDocument and deserialized the values
myself. Is the xmlserializer really that slow?
I'm expecting a file about 1 MB in length and if it's that slow on a 2 K
file then I can't phantom how it's going to behave on a 1 MB file.
Should I just skip the xmlserializer and XML Dom and go straight to
xmlreader and do the deserialization myself?
