[Access 2007] How to edit custom menubar created in Access2003?
This is my first post to this server, Hello everyone.
We're working on a database created by my collegue in MS Access 2003. Since
some time we've moved to MS Access 2007. Now we find problems editing the
menubar. Each time we want to remove/add/alter a menu item my collegue goes
to his MS Access 2003 and changes a menu.
In 2007 the full menubar is visible under Add-Ins ribbon menu.
Normally there should be a system table USysRibbon, but it is not there.
There are only MSys* objects. How can we change the menubar directly in MS

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.
(In a language more advanced than VBA, it would be a constant, not a
variable; unfortunately, in VBA I cannot initialize a constant by non-
constant expression). Specifically, in my case it looks like this:
Private sTempFileName as String
Private Sub Form_Load()
sTempFileName = GenerateTempFileName(...)

This is driving me crazy. If I already have Excel open (with or with out a
spreadsheet open) I cannot open an Excel spreadsheet attached to an e-mail.
If I close Excel and retry it will open Excel and the spreadsheet.
Any ideas? I hate having to close all my open spreadsheets when I want to
open a spreadsheet that's been e-mailed to me!
One of these usually works with a similar problem starting workbooks by double
clicking them in Windows Explorer. Maybe one will work for you and your email

I have a machine running office 97 and Win XP.
I have seen posts stating it runs fine, but I don't know how man
people use spreadsheets that require a hard calculation:
Excel will not force a calculation. i.e. ctrl-alt-f9 does not cause
full workbook calculation as required.
Meaning cells do not update and it doesn't calculate unless you clic
in the cell to edit and hit enter.
neither does the "Calc Now" button.
Auto or manual calculation mode has no effect.
Anybody else have this problem

We have some users that we have directed to only get their information

parameter query to make the information more easy to see.
The parameter query prompts for last name or broker #, is there a
way, when the last name is entered to include Jr's & Sr's? Or should
this be another field in the table to make the last name field more

...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).
3...Using later version of microsoft access
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.
