Rob, you can feel free to use the big white space underneath the Subject 
line to ask an intelligible question. One thing that is certainly germane, 
when you are asking about templates, is what version of Access you are 

It would also be just peachy-keen if you would describe what functionality 
you desire in "system requirements tracking" -- you can be assured that 
three-word phrase does not mean the same to everyone who reads it.

I've seen some "activity tracking" and "defect tracking" examples that might 
be adapted... older templates (some of which are not exactly "sterling 
examples of best practices") can generally be used with versions of Access 
released after that template.  There were/are significant changes in the 
area of templates in Access 2007, and there are more templates, and even 
more expected.

The real problem with "templates" is that there's no workable business model 
that makes it worthwhile for users and independent developers to create 
them -- they are beneficial only to Microsoft in promoting use of the 
product.  Most independents who create something for public consumption 
create sample databases, not templates -- it's easier, and to customize the 
applications generated from templates, you'll have to get into the design 
and code, in any case.

DST and Message Tracking Logs
I applied patches to OS, Exchange and the Exchange tool and thought we were in good shape... until I used message tracking this morning. Message tracking log times are 1 hour ahead! Anybody else run into this? Does it represent bigger problems? I only patached the OS on our exchange servers so far. This week I will be doing exchange 2k3 ent sp1 DST patch. One of my admins told me that the message tracking times were 1 hr ahead. I confirmed what my admin saw, so it's happening to us too. Must have something to do with the DST patch and like I said so far I have only patched DST at t...

Case ID v/s Email tracking token
CRMers, When you create a case for a support email, by default the generated case id is of the form CAS-number-suffix. When a support person replies to the email, the CRM system automatically adds an email tracking token to the subject line. This email tracking token is not the same as the case id. Questions: 1. Why can't the email tracking token be the same as the case id? Won't it make sense to use case id to track emails for a given support case? 2. Even if they are different, how can I disable automatic placement of tracking token on the subject line? We do not wish to confuse th...

Recipent Policy not purging System Cleanup folder
The Recipient Policy on my Exchange 2003 server is set to purge Deleted Items after 3 days and the System Cleanup folder daily, but the policy isn't having any effect on the System Cleanup folder and messages have been accumulating there for 6 months and still aren't being purged. This worked perfectly when we were using Exchange 2000, but since moving to Exchange 2003 (6 months ago) it has never worked. Is there a bug in Exchange 2003 that's causing this behavior or am I missing something? Exchange 2003 is patched with SP2. ...

Template keeps requiring resizing/fitting after data imported
I have a template to re-import text files and the column headings and column sizes keeps adjusting for some of the columns. Is there any way to keep the settings from the template the same once the data is imported ? Any ideas or suggestions ? I'm using Excel 2003 TIA George Your might record your headings and column sizes in a macro. Either create a macro button and call the result from there or call it from worksheet change. The latter requires no effort to update. Depending how your worksheet is used it may give an unacceptable performance hit. -- Steve "George Lewyck...

Barcode printing and tracking
Greetings: I am looking for advice regarding bar code label printing with Access. My non-profit organization receives donated items that are sold in our store. I want to track this inventory by attaching a bar code label to the merchandise when it is received so the donor will receive proper credit when the item is sold. Ideally, the barcode will contain the donor's information as it is entered into the database. Then, it would be nice if scanning the barcode on the item would bring up the donor's record from the database (sort of a two-way operation). Can anyone give me a few tip...

Message Notification Icon on the system tray
The registry setting for this with Outlook XP is: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\10.0\Outlook\Preferences\ShowEnvelope Of course with 2000 the location might be: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\9.0\Outlook\Preferences\ShowEnvelope Changing the value of ShowEnvelope to 0 will turn off, 1 to turn on.(Double-Click on the Key and make the Value a 1) Do not know it this will work with 2000, but it's worth a try.

Exit mfc app error when declaring global standard template library
When i add "list<int> int_list;" globaly to a .cpp file in a mfc application i get a general protection fault when i exit the program in release mode but not debug. I'm not sure what to do to diagnose what the problem is but it seems obvious to me that adding a global standard template library variable to my application should be safe and therefore something else maybe I've misallocated is causing this problem. Could you offer any pointers to how to diagnose this problem? Could this be a real bug in Microsoft code or is it more likely I've already corrupted ...

System.Array to XML #2
Hi.. Is there a way to convert a System.Array to XML... If you know thanks very much... if you don't... Please do not respond stupid things like " Yes -- many ways." I suspect that you have got many stupid responses like that in the past, perhaps that is because it is not a great question. Your intentions are not clear. To take your question literally, the simple answer is no. The is no TypeConverter or built in cast for converting from System.Array to XML. So now that we have established that your question is stupid, lets get on with solving your problem. The following inf...

catching system errors / exceptions (and knowing what)
I know this will probably get to nowhere, but is there a way to do this ? I mean, with C++ catch-throw, not with Win32 SEH. The reason I don't want to use it is that I rely heavily on STL objects, which throw standard C++ exceptions, and I hear it's not a good idea to mix this with SEH. They can of course be caught with catch (...) but is there a way of knowing inside it that the exception was raised by a system problem (such as null-pointer access, divide by 0 etc.) and which one it was ? If not, maybe they throw some specific exception type ? I tried to catch a DWORD but it didn'...

I've got a backup exec server, and apparently to be able to restore deleted/archived emails I need to be able to load the Exchange Management tools onto the BE server. I cannot find a way to load JUST the 64 bit Exchange Management Tools for 2007. There is a 32bit download available, but the 64 bit version says you need to install it from your Exchange 2007 media.

Is VB.Net the best option for a web front end port of an existing MS Access 2003 system?
Hi All I have developed a MS Access 2003 application for a client. It is spilt into two with a data back end and a forms/query/modules front end. The majority of the "value add" of the system is in the VB logic in the front end that guides and validates the users actions as they use the forms to update and search the back end. The system has proved successful in prototype and now the client wants to roll it out to his users - this is where we hit a problem. His IT department do not support MS Access! While he could get MS Access installed on his PC he cannot get it ins...
