MSVDM Virtual desktop removes ALL menus & toolbars
When you switch desktops using the MSVDM powertoy, with Excel 2003 open,
after returning to the desktop where excel was open, ALL toolbars & Menus
have been removed leaving just the bare sheet and the formula bar!
I can not get microsoft to agree this is a fault, and there is no
notification or update regarding this fault on the powertoy webpage.
Other users are also seeing this, if you search google for msvdm and excel,
you will see several site reporting this problem, but nothing on MS's
This is a great Powertoy, shame it doesn't work properly with excel !
I created several pub files using office 2007. I pasted in multiple Word docs
created with two computers, one using XP, the other using Vista. The files
using docs from both computers will not open ("publisher cannot open this
file" error). I ran a test with 6 Word docs created on XP pasted into a
publisher file, opened closed it with Vista computer, no problem. Pasted 1
Word doc created on Vista into the same file then closed and tried to reopen
document but got the aformentioned error message. I tried the registry fixes

The subject line says it all. On my Toshiba Tablet PC, "After XP sp2
upgrade, Outlook 2003 crashes every time a Contact is saved or links
to other contacts added to it" (via the Contact's "Contacts..." link
button). The error signature is always the same:

First, you must reinstall Office.
Then you can configure Outlook to use the same Outlook Data File (PST file)
you were using before instead of the new blank one it created when you

Tha...Parsing Text When Only One Character Can Be Used To Search
I've spent a couple of hours looking on this site, and have found some
excellent new tips, but still need to ask for assistance. I have a series of
text rows containing one string that I need to parse. There are no
characters I can use as delimeters (inconsistent), and there is no consistent
use of text qualifiers; it's in effect, free form text. Here's a sample

When I open Excel 2003 the splash screen hangs for 30 seconds to about a
minute and then excel opens and behaves normally.
All other office programs such as Word etc open quickly and behave normally.
If Excel is opened in safe mode , the program opens rapidly without any
splash screen at all.
Any explanations and indeed a cure for this behaviour ?
When you open excel in safe mode, you're not opening the addins or stuff in your
XLStart folder or your customized toolbar.

I have a Nikon D3000 which takes shots that are wider in ratio
to their height than my monitor is. When I was running XP, it
automatically displayed the wallpaper as widescreen, with bars at the
top and bottom.
My Vista set up doesn't do that automatically and I don't know
how to make it happen. I'm no expert, but I've managed to do a little
more in terms of fixing things than a lot of comp owners who aren't
programmers have, but this baffles me, despite the fact there are

I have a couple of distribution lists under my contacts in Outlook 2003.
If I go into the contacts list and delete an a contact, and then when I go
into a distribution list where that contact still exists and I hit the
update button, it does not delete that contact.
Shouldn't it be updating the distribution list when I hit update? Or do I
have to manually delete the contact from the dist list after I've deleted
the contact from the contacts area?
I have never seen the Update Now button do anything it's supposed to. I

Our users with Windows XP cannot send messages using OWA. I've read a few KB
articles about some incompatabilities between XP and OWA, but none of the
proposed fixes (using the "basic" rather than "premium" client, or changing
the security settings in IE) seem to solve this last problem. When they
click on "send", it generates an unspecified "error on page". The problem
occurs using IE and Firefox, but just on XP machines. My Windows 2000
machine works fine using IE and even my Macintosh using Safari (gasp!) works.

I'm using Filter-by-Form for searching. For each field, when in FBF, the
pull down shows a list of distinct values for that column.
One field on my form, though, is showing a list of non-distinct values, so
the list has over 200,000 entries, many of them duplicates (in this case,
NULL or zero length string).
What's going on? This particular field was fine earlier in development, and
the other search fields are still fine - showing only distinct values.

I have a a table with data from some operations. The status (char(2)) of the
operations can be changed. But there are some status that are "final" and

Is there a way the create a constraint that checks the previous status? So
if the previous is, for example, "fi" (final), won't allow an update?

You cannot do this with a constraint. You would need a trigger.
