Learning XPath Query Language Resource Material/Books/White Papers

I am a total beginner to XPath and using Native .NET XML Classes (although I
have used XML with Datasets before). I have "XML for ASP.NET Developers"
which seems like a good .Net XML overview book but would like to learn more
about writing XPath Queries.

What do I need to learn the XPath Language?

I tried import/export of Outlook 2003 but surprisingly I didn't find any option for WAB files.

MFC resources
Hi, Is there a way to mark an executable (mfc app) in such a way that no tool can easily edit the resources? As it is I can just use vs.net 2005 to open the .exe file and then I can not only see all the resources, but I can also change them. There has to be a way to just tell the compiler or the linker to include them in such a form so they cannot be edited? Thanks, G. You could build some sort of checksum into your code based on the resources and check that at runtime. It would make starting up a little more time consuming, but ...

CrossTab Query that shows original data (text)
I am a scheduler and would like to build a pivot table in Excel or a Cross Tab Query in Access that shows the data in its original form (text) instead of calculating the count, sum, avg., etc. Row headings would have member’s names.

crosstab query question 01-26-08
I'm using A 2000. I've created a crosstab query that finds data based on a date range that I supply just before opening it. The query will add or remove columns depending on that date range, and it will label the top of the column with the appropriate dates.The query works perfectly. One of the fields in the query is a UserName. I want to be able to double click the Username, and have it open a form and go to that Username's record. Of course, queries don't have events like a form does. So I don't see any way to open my filtered form from a record in the query. If I base...

Query of External Data
I'm using a ODBC connection to query a oracle database. If I refresh a query and email the file to the intended recipients, I can limit what they can see by changing the query to include/exclude certaing markets. Is there a way that I can set up the query so the recipient cannot edit the query and have access to all the data...? Or is there a way to disconnect the query from the excel file, this way the query could never be refreshed to the database. We could email them the file daily, but they wouldn't be able to refresh or change the query(to view markets they normally ...

Autocorrect language
I have this problem with Word, which I'm convinced is possessed by a demon. My autocorrect language is set to UK and I mean it doesn't matter which version of Word I use.

Any idea would be sooooo appreciated, thanks! What would you like it to be ...
