App only starts in CMD-Box, not in Explorer
I have a problem on a Windows Server 2003 R2. If I want to start a program
in Windows Explorer by double-clicking, I get the error message:
"Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have
the appropriate permissions to access the item."
The message I get with a user which is member of the Domain Admins and
Administrators. The permissions are also OK, everything is set to Allow, I
have also checked with the effective permissions.
If I start the application from a CMD box, it works.
Has anyone an explanation for this strange behave...Excel VBA
I can't seem to find the 'Draw" menu in Excel VBA...
Am I correct in assuming that there is none?
And that the Frame is the only way to group stuff on a Form??
The frame is typical, but you can group some controls by using the GroupName.
If you want lines on the userform, I think lots of people use a label that's
really skinny--or use a picture of a line and then use that picture.

Last night I was going about my regular buisness of (after work) getting on

I'm doing a project in Access 2000 using forms and MS Forms 2.0 combo
boxes. I'm not using the native Access combo box because it lacks an
Add Item method and is therefor very difficult to populate.
I want to do something when the user makes a selection in the combo box
so I need to respond to the Change event. The object browser shows a
number of events including Click and Change available for the combo box.
However, these events do not appear in property list of the combo box
so I cannot get to them.
I have confirmed that I'm using the Forms 2.0 combo box and not the native

I am trying to add unicode support to an older application. Doing a unicode
build would be too big a change, so instead we want to just add unicode
support to a few key parts. The first place I'm trying is a simple
multiline edit box. The user types in text and it gets stored in a file.
I've changed my API calls to their W equivalents and am using WCHARs instead
of chars, but the problem I'm having is with the edit box itself. If I try
to paste in a unicode character, it always shows up as a ?. What do I need
to do to "turn on unicode" for the edit box?
Nate Hekma...On-Click Events and motion tablet signature boxes?
I have a fairly involved form with 54 option frames. Each frame has 4 option
buttons (IN, OUT, N/A, N/O). I already have the option frames setup to
update their status in a table with numbers (1,2,3,4) and all this is linked
to a specific record number that is auto generated. I can create multiple
records that retain my choices for all 54 option frames.
What I want to do now is create a table with a list of pre-written comments
and an event on each option frame so if I select OUT it will select a
specific comment for that specific option. I might select OUT on the option

I have noticed when I right click on a file to "save As" the dialog always

it to Detail Tab is there a way in folder options or control panel to change
the setting to make the dialog box default to detail view ? Some feedback on

little I can do, but I don't want my name and phone number deleted

Firstly you do not say which version of Publisher you are using.
Secondly when you copy a webpage you are copying HTML.
Use menu EDIT > Paste Special > Unformatted Text
or paste into Notepad which will remove all the formatting and then re-copy
and paste into Publisher.
