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
Mac template archive look very weak.

Form_Load() and then stays unchanged for the form's entire lifetime.

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

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
mouse click. I want only to use text, no sounds, no pictures, and nothing
fancy. Currently, I am reduced to copying my material into an old Powerpoint

I've got access 2000 on my computer. When I go to open a database someone
sent me I get an error message :
this database is in an unrecognized format. The database may have been
created with a later version of microsoft access.
Is there any way I can open and use this file (short of upgrading to later
version of access)?
If you do not have Access 2002 or 2003, ask the person to save it in Access
2000 format for you.

But I'm trying to set up one more account and am running into issues. I put in all the same settings as for our other accounts, but it won't allow me to create or copy any sub-folders into the InBox folder for this account (it tells me it cannot and this is "probably due to a limitation of your imap server")...but I can do so for the other accounts on the same server.

...Access 97/2000/2003 comparisons
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).

What I want to do is run the same query for approx 110 different users, each

In our organization, we have changed the the default data file path. This makes the "Share a Calender" option disappear.

Secondly, if there is nothing that can be done in the above case, I tried sharing the calender by publishing it in Office Online.
