PDF File conversion problems w/ transparency filled boxes in Publi
Periodically, I like to use text boxes positioned over a photo in which I
insert photo caption information. I would like to make the fill in the text
box TRANSPARENT rather than solid. When I do this, it looks just fine in the
Publisher file, but when I convert it to a PDF file (with Adobe Acrobat), I
lose the transparency--it comes out as a box with grid/plaid-like shading in
it. The same thing happens with the shading that is inherent in Word
Art--when converted to PDF, the shading is comprised of GRID lines rather
than an even transparent shadow. Is there a problem between coding in...CSV file problem
Using Excel 2000 and I need to edit a CSV file. My problem is that the
original file has quotes around each element but when I save the csv file
from Excel it strips them off. I need the quotes left in. Any suggestion
how to get Excel to leave the quotes in?
Thanks in advance,

I would like to be able to change the tab order when entering data in a
protected worksheet. The default is to tab across the page and then to the
next row. There are some instances where I need to go down and then across.
Check out Bob Phillips' site for methods.
Note: there is another method using event code in a worksheet module.
Post back if you want to consider that.

Since some of our users have MS Office 2007 we have a huge problem with
Verdana font. When a user gets or writes a new document message with
verdana font, characters are shown like boxes or squares. This also happens
when users receive mail into Outlook 2007 that is written in Verdana. All
other fonts look ok, the only problem is with Verdana. So the only way to
view a document is to select all text and change font to anyting else as
Verdana, but it's very annoying.
This happens on all computers running MS Office 2007 or just MS Outlook
2007, also with new machines (clean insta...Problem importing Contact OE6 to Outlook 2003
I suspect this problem has been posed many times, but I'm a brand new

environment. I'm attemptina a two step process:
A. Moving my emails and addresses from OE6 to Outlook 2003 on my
current WindowsXP computer.
B. Moving the relevant information to Outlook 2003 on my new Windows 7
Right now I'm in step A.
On the WinXP computer, I switched my default email program from OE6 to
Outlook 2003. I successfully imported the mail messages and folders.
But when I go through the procedures (see...Problem: textbox default value = Date()
I want an unbound textbox on my form to default to current date. In the
default value property of the textbox, I put "=Date()". Instead of today's
date, it defaults to the text "date". What am I doing wrong?
(I see if I bind the textbox to "=Date()", the value, of course, is today's
date, but I only want the default to be today's date, which can be changed
Are you actually entering
or are you entering
without the double quotes?
If the latter, it should give you the date!

When sending attachments via IMAP the recipient is confronted with a renamed
file named winmail.dat that is unopenable due to the "dat" extension. Anyone
know why this is and how to stop it? In other words how to acheive WISIWTG

Normally WinMail.DAT attachments are the result of sending mail in Rich Text
Format. Is that the format you're using?

Hello, We changed email providers and now our windows fax service on

I require no smtp authentication since that is what godaddy said after i
sent them the bounced email. That is why their server rejected it.

...Problem printing reports via RMS Manager
Hi. Sometimes (not always) when I try to print reports from RMS the first
page comes out blank. Any reason why that is?
I don't have an answer for you, but I had the same issue first with a Canon
and then with an HP printer I used to have. I now have a Lexmark and it no
longer happens. So I was thinking it might have something to do with HP's
and Canon's printer drivers. It definitly leads me to believe it's a printer
issue, not with RMS.

I had seen some sample code a while ago - I don't know where it was - that
stepped through the controls on the page and formatted them. I have some
fields that I am formatting after update, but I find that they are not

that I need to step through the fields as I enter the page and reset the
formatting that way as well as after update. Any suggestions on how I can do
this? Also what is the property I need to put the Event Procedure on when
