Actually I'd create the invoice in a PDF format.  Making sure you
retain a copy of course.  That way it's more difficult for the folks
at the other end to muck with it.

A2000ReportToPDF is an Access 2000 database containing a function to
convert Reports and Snapshot files to PDF documents. No PDF Printer
driver is required.

Multiple copies of just one email
I'm using Outlook 2002 on Windows XP professional and I keep receiving a new copy of one email message every time I open Outlook or it performs a timed send/receive. All other email messages have been fine, i.e. just one copy. Would this be a problem with my computer that I can fix, a problem with the sender's computer that she can fix, or is something else the matter? I only get one copy of all other messages from the same sender. If anyone else is having this problem, I received an answer in the Office-Outlook-General Questions Discussion Group.

Timesheet Database
I am looking for a database or program that we can use for employee timecards. We deal in the supported living home environment and have 9 group homes that any number of employees could work at.

Access XP database
I am creating a database that will produce a sales contract in the construction biz.

I need to link the two tables so that I can produce a query from which I will produce a report. 3 questions: 1). What kind of field would I need to create to act as primary key, which leads to question 2).

Newbie q: Can't modify a database
Hi, I've been handed an access database in order to modify it (in the programming sense), but when i open it it opens as an application, without any apparent means of modifying the database structure. All it will let me do is add or edit data. Is there a secret trick to opening the database for modification, or do I have to go to the owners of the database and have them save it in a different way? Thanks, Jon Hi Jon If you hold down the shift key while the database is opening it should bypass any startup options code and take you straight to the database window. If this doesn'...

I need a template for avery 6572
I am trying to format a lable 6572 (avery). I can't find it in publisher 2003 - and I can use word, although the lable doesn't look as good, because I have to save it as a jpg. Any ideas? Often the same Avery label will be found under different numbers. They change because of ink jet or laser, color, and/or quantity. It could be that the label you need is called something else.

Stopping Outlook sending Email Not Read messages
Hi. I read all my email at work but have a copy sent to another pop3 mailbox which i download at home. I download headers only and then select the messages i wish to keep at home and delete the rest.

Database File Size
Hello All, A quick question regarding the Database size: We had an old Access database file protected by Security Wizard, We created a new database file and import everything from the old file, however the size is not exactly the same, the new database file is way smaller than the old one. Does that mean any data lost in the import process? Or is there any other reason such as we used the Security Wizard on the old one not the new one so that overhead was added...anyone could explain this? Also is there a way to compare the two database file to see if they are the same or not? Thanks a lot!...

POP downloading but not displaying email
I recently installed the Outlook Connector to Windows Live mail account (although I do not know if this has anything to do with the problem).

How to add a picture to an Outlook 2002 signature, without using 'Word as email editor'
We have disabled 'Word as email editor' by group policy. This is essential as we run a Citrix environment and Word as email editor hammers the server processors. However, when I have created a signature with a graphic, it does not work unless 'word as email editor' is enabled. If not, there is just an empty box with a red cross in it. There is a work around where you insert the graphic manually into your email, but this is not a satisfactory solution for users. I'd love to hear any solutions to this.
