Access 97 can't resize database window
My database window with the listings of forms tables etc was adjusted to a
smaller width, but resizing it is completely disabled and renders Access
2007 utterly useless for me. Is there anyway to 'reset' the window?

There are some very nice templates at the Windows Office Template

Is there any way to get these templates? Unfortunately, they make the

A form has a variable that is initialized (by some function call) in
Form_Load() and then stays unchanged for the form's entire lifetime.

constant expression). Specifically, in my case it looks like this:

If you have Word installed and it's the same version as Outlook (both 2003,
for example), you can do a mail merge between the two. This would allow you
to set up the text the way you want it to, and you can save the document for
future use. Look at the following page for further information:

I frequently used the 'fade in one by one' feature in Powerpoint 2003, which
allowed me to fade in individual bullet points by way of a click of a mouse.
Not only is this feature now not standard in 2007, but I can't work out how
to create it: anything that I find, tends, instead, to fade the bullet points
in on some kind of automatic time schedule, rather than - as I want - on a

I've got access 2000 on my computer. When I go to open a database someone

I have a rather large application that uses an access 97 database (DAO). We
also have a version that works with access 2000, Oracle, msde, and SQLServer
(ADO). We would like to retire the DAO version of the product, but there are
places where the ADO version is much slower compared to where we run DAO
seeks (very noticeable when looping). So, I have a few questions.
1. Are there any tips/tricks to speed up ADO queries to compare with DAO
2. Would there be any benifit in using access 2003 over previous versions of
the software besides the added features (xml support, etc).

I have two tables - one position, one personnel - which has a 1-to-many

you can click on the tab that has the personnel information (if there is
