Close and Inactive form
Hi, I am wanting to have an open form closed automatically if the form has
been open for a specified period of time with no data added to it. We have a
number of staff members who for whatever reason leave the office without
closing open forms.
Any Ideas would be appreciated.

I'm sure this will have been asked before:
I need to change the picture property of an image control on each generation
of a continuous form. Basically, I am creating a list, each row of which is
one generation of a continuous form, and want an icon alongside each row
which relates to the content of the row.
Unlike reports, there is no OnFormat event for the detail section of a form.
I need to use a form and not a report as I want interactivity - effectively

Because of the lack of ability to customize form assistant, it sometimes
confuses our users. Consequently for the time being I would like to disable
it globally. Does anyone know how this can be done?
We are considering adding a way to globally disable the form assistant in
the next version of CRM. Until then you can disable it by updating the
FormXml of the forms that use it. Here are some instructions that are
being considered for the next release of the V3 documentation:
1. ...MsgBox and a pop up form
I have an application that pop up a form (vbModal) asking for password in
order to proceed. It pops up after a period of idling. It works prettty
The hassle comes when there is a MsgBox popping up and the user does not
respond, then the modal form pop up. Now I got 2 modal things, and you
cannot click anything to move on. I have been sidestepping the problem by
disabling the modal form whenever I show msgbox. I am wondering if there is
a better way to do this.

I have a form called "Investments" and then a subform set up to record
detailed investment transactions for each investment. I would like to add
the "Investment cost" field in the footer of the subform based on only those
detailed transactions with no check in the check box for "replaced/sold"
(which means they are still active investments).
Normally I would just set up an unbound text box and use
=sum([InvestmentCost]) to calculate that field, but how do I bring into this
formula only those with no check?

I'm trying to create a CFormView derived form that contains some static

CPropertySheet doesn't matter) two embedded forms (selected by the tabs
although one of these forms will be re-used multiple times), and a couple of
buttons (Ok, Cancel). I've tried various and sundry things and I can get
the sub form (embedded CFormView with a CTabCtrl or a CPropertyPage with the
CPropertySheet) to display and I can even select them with the mouse. What
I seem unable to do is to get the tab order to work "seaml...Outlook 2000 E-Mail, No Email Coming in, Just Dialogue Boxes Looking for Errors

I need to have a subfrom from my main form which appears when the user

Alright I have a db that is pretty basic. It has a First and Last Name field
a Title Field and seven YES/NO fields.
What I want is that when I run a query on a specific employee name it will
pop up a form displaying a photo of the employee and another image or
something displaying (basically pass or fail) whether they have completed all
test requirements. Meaning that all of the seven YES/NO fields are checked
yes. Again, if all of the seven YES/NO fields are check they pass and if not
they fail and I would like something to display to say that.

Not possible with the default Excel image control etc. You will need to use
a 3rd party ActiveX control. Alternatively you could use the Internet
Explorer component. However this will add a bit of bulk and an extra
dependency to your solution.
