I do not have A2007 installed here but I would imagine the internal 
structure of the storage mechanism behind the Image control has changed 
signficantly from previous releases(A97 through A2003).

When converting existing A2003 MDB to A2007, the internal Access conversion 
logic is written to handle transparency.

Have you tried copying and pasting a transparent Image from an open MS Word 
document directly onto an Access form?

Thanks for the interest.  I have just retried calling up your .emf images in 
A2007 and it all works as expected.  I don't know what I was doing before 
when I got a charcoal grey opaque background.

So it seems it was a false alarm. (I'm somewhat relieved as I can preserve 
the look and feel of my current project.)

Help needed urgently
Hi, Im trying to check that one row of data satifies a criteria, then if it does it counts an entry in another column adjescent to it.

crosstab qry as report source breaks Access2007
We have 3 reports whose record sources are crosstab queries. All have work fine on the pc's running Access2003. But, the one pc running Access2007 doesn't like the crosstab queries as the report source. We don't get an error - only the dreaded 'Access has encountered a problem and has closed...' It totally shuts down the access application. I stepped through the little bit of onOpen code while opening the reports and all works fine. I open the crosstab query and it opens just fine.

help with dynamic tables
This is a bit complicated to explain but I'll try my best. In columns A, B, C I have different drop down lists. Column A has Store1, Store2, Store3, etc. Column B has Dept1, Dept2, Dep3, etc. Column C has ProductA, ProductB, ProductC. As of right now, these lists are not dependent on each other, I can choose anything from any list regardless of the previous category. Also, the length of these lists is undefined, meaning I will constantly be adding to them in sequential rows below. And then columns D and beyond have data such as Sales, Profits, # of items, etc. What I...
