AUUUGH!!! Sound recorder bug with computers with more than 2 gig

I have an addin which allows people to quicly create and use comment banks 
which can be inserted into Word documents. The addin also allows you to 
record audio comments (recorded using Sound recorder). The video at shows how this works (about 2 
minutes in)

Things are going well ... and then I used it on a computer with more than 2 
gig of memory and found that SOUND RECORDER FALLS OVER!! This is a known 
problem -- see

Does anyone know of:
* another way of recording audio under control of VBA? OR
* a way of patching sound recorder so it works on a machine with more than 2 
gig memory
* another work around that I might be able to use to achieve this 
functionality in machines with more than 2 gig memory

Some people have suggested using the  /MAXMEM= option in the boot.ini file 
BUT this is a last ditch drop dead option.

Any helpful advise would be very gratefully accepted,
Peter Evans

Hello all, sorry for the previous post with nothing in it. Here is the problem I have resently upgraded an Access97 back end to Access 2000 due to size restrictions of Access97. we were running an Access 2000 frontend at that time. since converting to Access2k we keep getting "#Deleted" records "Can't save without edit or new" fields inside of records are "#deleted" and so on.

Print Selected Record
I want to print a popup form. I used the command button wizzard to set up a button to print the form. How can I filter what's printed to be only the selected (active) record? -- Thanks. Sammie Access 2003 Although allowed, Forms are really not designed for printing. Why not just create a report to present the data for the current record. Then you can use the Where argument of the OpenReport method to have the report limited to the active record on the form? -- Dave Hargis, Microsoft Access MVP "Sammie" wrote: > I want to print a popup form.

Record Macro in Excel 2007 not recording everything
Hi, I've been using Excel 2007 for a few weeks now and I've noticed that the 'Record Macro' functionality is not so complete anymore. For example if you record a macro when adding a picture to your sheet,resizing & moving it, then saving your sheet. The result is the insert & save sheet code. The resizing & moving of the picture is not present in the macro. Another example, add a comment to a cell. Then start recording macro and change font of this comment. Then you got a nice empty macro. I hope this is a setting because otherwise I will go back to Excel 2003. ...

HTML code-bug mouseover problem in page created with Excel.
Aloha potential savior. I decided to make a site with Excel (why is that so funny?), which is going slow but ok, considering I know very little, but now ran into a problem: When I integrate a mouseover tag into a cell, it results in the cells being white upon first load. See for yourself: How do I change the HTML code in order for the cells to start out with a color instead of white? Please make me stop ripping out my hair;-) Although this is not an html group...

Charting #2
I'm creating what I call a running total spreadsheet where I list the Item, Category, & Amount as column headers. Examples could be: 1) Printer, Hardware, $150 2) Visio, Software, $150 3) Computer, Hardware, $2000 How can I create a chart that sums all the Categories (Hardware = 2150) together. Everything I try, list each line item separately. Thanks, Enrique Hi Enrique: Two ideas: 1. Create a pivot table and build a charts based on this table (look at for an introduction to pivot tables) 2. Create a seperate sheet in which you sum up a...

Sound card / sound devices not recognized
I recently re-installed XP SP3 after a virus attack and now my machine is not recognizing my headphones nor my plug and play speakers (both of these work on other machines). My machine is a Gateway, built 12/2003, P4, Windows Media Player 9. My best guess is that it is a sound card issue. I don’t know whether the card is on the motherboard or separate: I haven’t ID’ed the type of sound card yet. I ran a program called Everest that lists all the components, but under the motherboard I did not recognize anything that looked like a sound card. I have made sure the speakers are...

Mail Merge from Outlook Skips Records or doesn't merge at all
Outlook 2002 with Windows XP I set up a mail merge from Outlook with several contacts. The document seems fine, I can see all the recipients when I "view merged data" and in the "mail merge recipients" but when I complete the merge into a new document only 2 records are merged. When I switched to labels I received an error message "data records were empty or no record matched query".

Thumping sound in XP after I click someting
Ok I built an home theater PC (HTPC) with Windows XP and had all the latest updates. To make a long story short, my projector blew a bulb and it took about 6+ months to replace it. During that down time, I didn't turn the PC on. I was able to finally buy a bulb, and start the PC up again. Now, whenever I initiate an activity with a mouse, and the activity happens, I get a thump, where a ding is supposed to sound. For example, if I click the Back button in IE and it goes to the previous page, I get a thump. If I click Ok on a dialog box, I get a thump; if I double-click on ...

Need to populate a Report with several records
In short, I have one report containing 5 records from the same table. The individual records are layed out to support proper printing. I need to populate each record with from the same table. I can not give them all the same pointer to the table or I get 5 copies of the same record. How can I populate those 5 records with 5 records from my table? I think you need to have a group by in your report. Thus you will get 1 group of data for each of the 5 that you are refering to as 5 records.

Hottest day on record? Try 1930
A Bit of History for Global Warmers: Look at 1930 By Randy Hall Staff Writer/Editor August 04, 2006 ( - People sweltering from a heat wave in the Mid-Atlantic region of the U.S. might find cold comfort in the fact that the temperatures of the past few days are not the hottest on record. That "honor" belongs to a summer 76 years ago -- decades before the controversy over "man-made global warming" began. "From June 1 to August 31, 1930, 21 days had high temperatures that were 100 degrees or above" in the metropolitan Washington, D.C., ...

Count Filtered Records
Sometimes when I filter a list, the status bar displays how many records are in the filtered list e.g. "70 of 174 records found". Other times, the status bar only shows "Filter Mode". Can anyone tell me why this is or how I can get Excel to always show the number of records filtered. Thanks and Happy Xmas Pat Mattimoe When your list has many formulas, the Status Bar may show "Filter Mode" instead of a count of the visible records. You can use the Subtotal function to count the visible rows. The following MSKB article has some information: XL2000: Exce...

Office XP Sounds
I'm having a problem with the Office XP Sounds add-on, available for download at Microsoft's Web site.

low voice recording volume with Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio sound card
Hi all, Here a while back I build a new computer and installed a Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio sound card. The Asus P5Q PRO TURBO motherboard I put in it had integrated sound but would not do what I needed. Now, I'm having problems with the microphone not having enough volume to properly record voice.
