Which encoder should be used for publishing web pages to the internet. When we installed Pub2003, it defaulted to Western European. Is there a site that explains the difference between these encoders, i.e. Western European vs. US ASCII?
Leave it at Western European. That setting should not need adjusting.
If you should happen to use some odd symbol and font that doesn't render
correctly then setting it to Unicode would be required.
In your IE browser go to View, Encoding... you will find it at Western
European as well ( or possibly utf8).

I have found three MAJOR bugs so far in Outlook2003,
The first is the Junk Email filter that is part of the
program will not work on any sub-folders under the Inbox,
it will only work on the Inbox.
The Second is that Outlook 2003 will not function
properly on a computer that has "WinFaxPro 10.02 for
Windows XP" installed.
The third bug is that the macro functions do not work
100% of the time. The first time i reply to an email
using any of my macros they do not always work, i have to
close the email and open it back again before it will
work properly. it has to do with line c...Read/Write Excel under IIS .NET
I have configured two machines. One is W2K PRO and other is W2K

Microsoft. I wrote a web app to create excel file and and read excel

W2K PRO using HTTP. W2K Server using HTTPS.
1. The excel process does not exit.
2. I got an "unspecified error" when try to read a file from the web
client's local disk.
Any suggestion for troubleshooting?
...redistributable for VC++ 2005 SP1 available?
I need a setup which installs all the runtime files needed for a VC++ 2005
SP1 (x86) program. On the Microsoft homepage I only found such a setup for
VC++ 2005, dated 4/10/2006, so it seems to be without SP1. Someone told me
to download and install SP1 on that client, but I don't know if this works
if no Visual Studio products are installed and furthermore I don't want to
download and install a 430MB setup package. (BTW: This has to be installed
later on 2000 clients, when the tests complete.) Will this be released later
or did I just not find the link?
On Fri, 2 Feb 200...ANN: Database Workbench 4.0.3, the multi-DBMS IDE now available!
Upscene Productions is proud to announce the next
version of the popular multi-DBMS development tool:
" Database Workbench 4.0.3 Pro "
This release includes the FREE Lite versions for InterBase, Firebird
Version 4 introduced full Unicode support, 4.0.3 fixes some issues
found in that initial release and subsequent releases, including
the "Query was empty"-error in some parts of the MySQL module.
There have been numerous improvements to existing tools and the user
interface making it even better than before.

In all earlier versions of Excel, pivottable page, row, & column elements could
not be changed...now, in 2003, we find that the text of an item can be over
retained, and not returned to it's original form during a refresh. This seems
a little odd.
Is this a new 'feature' or just a new bug?
Either within the Field Options dialog or by typeing directly over the Field
Name in a cell, there has been at least one way to change the Field Names
permanently at least as far back as Excel 2000.

The new Office 2007 Help tab (the "Get Started" tab replacement) appears to
have a problem with multiple users. If I install it under my administrator
account, then other accounts, including both admin and user level accounts,
do not see the Help tab. It appears that I have to manually install it for
each of the users on the computer. Has anyone else seen this problem? Also,
does anyone have any ways to workaround this problem?

I finally figured out that when copy-paste-link from Visio to Word, certain
fonts past well and other do not (particularly if one prints to Acrobat
PDF). The fonts that do print apparently must have corresponding BOLD,
ITALIC, BOLD ITALIC, fonts also installed. Unicode and Dingbat fonts are
not liked at all my Visio-Word-Acrobat. I've even tried to trick the three
programs by using Font Creator to copy the most used dingbats into a normal
font file replacing glyphs A,B,C, etc. -- but these programs are just too
smart for me.

...write off documents
In Tools-Routines-Sales-Write Off Documents the system currently pulls the
default AR account vs. the actual account when doing a writeoff per
transaction (ex. in the manual payment apply window when you take a
writeoff). When using this feature, the account should be pulled from the
document and not per customer and figure out what distribution to use from
the transaction (instead of the customer). That way when writing off amounts
from a specific transaction, the write-off would be to the same accounts as
the original transaction.

I've never used Exchange server, and I'm in the process of

The question is, can the Exchange server (2003 or 2007) do the

2) Restrict users to send only one email at a time, using the TO field.

My organization is just beginning the implementation of our AR module in

preferably using web services. The help file for eConnect 8 has web services

locate any other documentation on this ability.
Basically the issue is that we plan to skip 9 and move to 10 late this year
should it be released. We need to start our integration as soon as possible.

I'm using Word in Mac Office 2004. I like to create custom buttons in
the toolbar for various little macros I run.
Back on my PC (I recently swtiched) Word 2000 has a built in editor for
button images. Word 2004 on the Mac lacks this, but does allow you to
paste any image onto a toolbar button.
However, there seems to be a bug -- the image I paste seems to be
reduced to a smaller size than Word's own toolbar buttons. It does this
when I try to paste an image file such as a GIF or BMP.
Anyone know of a workaround to this?

I have a question that I have never had to deal with as an Office 2000-2007
Trainer at my company. One of our departments needs to know how to use the
various Excel 2007 features. One thing on their list is the Excel 2007 Table
1) It seems like an interesting option that automates many of Excel's
features. I typically do not use the Table feature and teach how to do the
various options without using the Table option.
This upcoming training has me thinking. Should I just teach the Table option
and not worry about the students understanding many of the underlining
