A form has a variable that is initialized (by some function call) in
Form_Load() and then stays unchanged for the form's entire lifetime.
(In a language more advanced than VBA, it would be a constant, not a
variable; unfortunately, in VBA I cannot initialize a constant by non-
constant expression). Specifically, in my case it looks like this:
Private sTempFileName as String
Private Sub Form_Load()

I had a Fax Icon on my toolbar and also on the file menu. All of a sudden it

Was it a dedicated toolbar? Or was it just icons on a builtin toolbar?
If it was a dedicated toolbar, you may get lucky and find it under:
(just not selected)
But if it was on a builtin toolbar (along with the file menu), then maybe you
reset your toolbar--also under:
selecting a toolbar and hitting the reset button.
If that's what happened, I think I might try to find the Fax addin/workbook that

You can export individual folders to access or excel to have them available
for searching. I have never tried to export my entire .pst file to access
or excel however.

What you've done will work. You can also use the "+" operator if there is a

...Cannot open Excel attachment from e-mail when Excel is already ope
This is driving me crazy. If I already have Excel open (with or with out a
spreadsheet open) I cannot open an Excel spreadsheet attached to an e-mail.
If I close Excel and retry it will open Excel and the spreadsheet.
Any ideas? I hate having to close all my open spreadsheets when I want to
open a spreadsheet that's been e-mailed to me!
One of these usually works with a similar problem starting workbooks by double
clicking them in Windows Explorer. Maybe one will work for you and your email

I need some ACCESS insight...please...
Several years ago, I built an access db to track my business

So this database is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO ME.
The file has grown to 140 MB.
Today I made a copy of the file and then edited my calendar table.
I removed all columns which had 2006 data (72 totals columns) - the
table had about 144 columns originally.
I then added 72 columns with 2008 headers. These columns are now
blank since I have not added any 2008 data yet. Afterwards, I looked

I have an application that uses resource files to contain the string values
for each language.
I have created the required resource files in my project, but I don't speak

What I would like to do, is somehow allow the end user to edit the resource
file themselves so they can set the string values as needed.
Is there a way to edit the resource files that ship with my application and
get installed ?
Is there a way to have external resource files (not embedded into my
application) that can be updated/replaced with o...Exporting contacts in a csv file
