How many minutes is reasonable to wait after cancelling "Update securities"?
The answer = 0! A few seconds, well Ok. But let's say that you cancel because it's taking so damn long (even with a broadband connection). Is it reasonable to wait 10 minutes? Obviously not. As a software developer, I know that the number 1 criteria is user response. I also know that more advanced developers usually allow a thread to be signaled so that it can be timed out, usually with an event. So MS is using IE components to download - that's fine. But spin off a thread that calls the IE components and that can handle the cancellation request. And for those of you who w...

How to prevent Excel 2003 from automatically change chart type
At the occurence of a blank cell in the series of X values of an XY chart, the chart automatically change to a line chart (which is useless in the context). This drastically reduces the efficiency of Excel, for example: 1) I have to use double records of data, one containing blanks for statistical operations and one containing #NA for XY charting 2) A single series chart can transform into charts of 20 or even hundreds of series to circumvent the problem This problem occurred in Excel 2003, MIcrosoft Office 2003 professional edition Click on chart; use Tools|option and open Chart tab; c...

Update list of elements
I have serialized list of my object in a xml file. What is the best way to update only one object and save it back into the xml file. Do I have to load full list, update one item and save the list into the file? Or is there way how to update only one element (one object) ??? Thanks Mirek Hello Mirek, I think you have to load the whole XML file and then search for the special record/item in the XML document. We cannot randomly access one object directly with the xml file. If the performance must be considered, you also can consider save the object into database instead of XML file....

Money update fails
Hello, After a reinstall of XP & Money Plus Deluxe, all attempts to start (and use) Money fail.

After clicking OK, a software update download is attempted, but fails, with the following text: "the money software update has failed. please try the update again later." Any thoughts on this?

new e-mails automatically going to archive?!?!
I have two users on a terminal server that noticed their newer e-mails had automatically gone to a PST. That is, it would leave e-mails in folders under the "Inbox" that were older than 6 months but it would move the e-mail from 6 months ago to present to a PST file. The PST file just so happens to be the PST file that is setup as their autoarchive. It also just so happens that autoarchive is supposed to archive e-mail _older_ than 6 months... I don't even see an option to archive something from a certain time ago to the present. Where should I start to look for this p...

how do I control how embedded objects are updated
I have an Excel file that I have embedded into my WORD 2007 doc. I have only pasted a portion of the Excel file, since it is large, but users can open the doc to see the whole file, since it is embedded. However, if they double click the object, and do any scrolling, the object changes. I want the default to be Open, not Edit when the object is double clicked. How do I do that? You can protect the embedded sheet (or workbook) with a password, so that it cannot be edited. -- Stefan Blom Microsoft Word MVP "tsoesh" <>...

Disable "Track in CRM" for emails
Is it possible to disable the "Track in CRM" feature in the Outlook client? I still want emails to be able to go out from CRM, i.e. via workflows, and I also want users to be able to attach other types of activities to records. I just don't want users to be able to promote an Outlook email up to CRM. Not sure if this is even possible. Thanks.

Obviously (?) each college has a number of contacts (up to 14) and these are represented in two tables – one for College Details and one for Contact Details which are linked by a one to many relationship.

The membership of a group is noted by a Yes/No field in the Contact details. Getting a query to run to identify membership of groups is OK. But I ca...

I open the MDB, the form runs automatically
Simple question I have an MDB file with 20 files and 7 forms in it. When I open it up, the form runs immediately an access goes into some sort of protected mode. I can't view the tables, queries etc. I can see the code by pressing Alt F11 but not the data. I created a blank db and imported the mdb so I could see the tables. But how do I open the original without it running the code? When I look at the code. I don't see anything that sets properties or invokes the code automatically. There are no macros in this, just the forms and associated code with them. Any ideas Thanks Colm ...
