Lost Tools Menu

I am securing a database.  I removed the admin user from the admins
group, after creating another user for the admins group, and giving
that user a password.  Then in the startup options I removed some of
the toolbars, so my users couldn't try to change any options.  The
problem is that now I don't have the Tools menu, and it doesn't come
back even when I hold down the shift key while double-clicking the
icon for the database to start it.  It just asks me for my password
(the user in the admins group) and opens the database with the limited
set of toolbar menus, not including the Tools menu.  How do I get it
back???

You need to hold down the shiftkey (and keep holding it down until the =
db window appears).  Since it is secured, double-click the desktop =
shortcut, enter your username/password, then hold down the shiftkey =
while you click on OK in the dialog.

Drop Down Menu... again
Ok I have created a drop down menu on sheet2, which takes data from an entire list of parts from sheet1..... then with advice from here, used the vlookup command to also fill out the serial number associated with what I chose from the drop down menu. The problem is that each part might have 10 or 20 of them with the exact same part names, and different serial numbers. No matter which part i select, i always get the first serial numbers associated with that part.. not the 3rd or 4th or 5th one even if thats the one ive selected in the drop down menu.

oversized inbox - inbox repair tool
Greetings, Basics - my inbox had grown to almost 2.2Gig without me being aware of the 2 gig limit. I am aware of the Oversized PST Crop Tool, and have tried that with one copy of my pst file. Problem is it mostly eliminates the most recent information. In my case about 4 months of emails, and the contents of my address book and calendar. Is there another tool that can crop the file in a way that would eliminate older material (I have older backups), and leave the newest.

XML Source Menu Item disabled?? File version??
My XML Source Menu Item is disabled (aka greyed-out). Why? I have a workbook with multi-worksheets and I want to enable a conversion to XML, I'm trying to follow the documentation here, but it's poorly organized and more poorly written (IMHO).. I can't find anything which tells me why the menu item would be disabled. The version is Office 2003 Pro and (clearly) the capability is there, I can see the "XML Source" item. I did a quick test and if I make a brand new file, I have the XML Source option so that means means this is a file version issue?. I know this wo...

We have a test domain set up and we would like to move our CRM data over.

split information lost on epay bills

Context Menu
Hello everyone, I'm developping an add-in that, among other things, will add a new item to the context menu (when you right-click on a message).

Security setting lost by some AD Users after migration from Exchange 2000 to 2003
Hi, I'm doing a migration from an old Server Windows 2000 AS + Exchange 2000, to a new Server Window 2003 + Exchange 2003. Both servers are Domain controllers of the same domain (migrated to 2003 structure several monthes ago). I just moved all the mailboxes from the old to the new Server and had some surprises. First of all, I lost all the "Send As" rights I had on some mailboxes (from the Security Tab of the associated user in AD). That's not bad, apart that I had to reset all the permissions by hand. The bad news is that 2 of this associated users don't retain the sec...

MODIFY a menu of a running MDI Application
