Do you have Adobe Reader install on your machine. If not that is wha
the message is taking about. The insert object needs the applicatio
that created or that can read the file you are attempting to insert.

This is not an Excel problem, but I will give you two suggestions.
In My Computer or Windows Explorer
GO>TO>TOOLS>FILE TYPES and scroll down in the Registered file types for
PDF extention and make sure the Adobe Acrobat is listed beside it. If
not highlight PDF and hit the CHANGE button and choose Adobe Acrobat
from the program list, this may solve your problem.
If that doesn't fix the problem or the correct file association was
already there. I would uninstall and reinstall adobe acrobat. Just in
case it is a registry problem.
Other than that I am at the limit of my knowledge.

Creating RMS POS Com Object
Hi! I need to create several addins, and I can't get past square one. I'm used to writing vb for access, and not dll's. I opened a new active x .dll in vb6, copied & pasted the process code from the customization guide, save it as a dll, registered the dll, and created a com-session button, but all I get is 'Attempt to execute COM object D:\yada-yada\RMS3.dll failed.

NTBackup can't see Exchange object

How to insert page with different page numbering
I am using Word 2003 and trying to insert a page "a" (i.e. insert page 407a after page 407). I have added the new page as a separate section and managed to changed the page number to 407 (so there are now two 407 pages). But, when I add an "a" to the page number it adds an "a" to all the page numbers in the whole document. I cannot figure out a way to prevent this. I could possibly do this in 2007 and save as 2003 format it I need to. Any ideas? What am I missing? Hi Lisa, In addition to the section break that you made between page 407 and 407a, ...

8000 byte row limit blown while adding fields to Microsoft CRM Account object.
Hi all My customer has requested a great deal of customisation on their CRM implementation, particularly the Account object. As such, around 40 new fields have been added to the account object via the Deployment Manager. Unfortunately, we are at the point now where additional fields cannot be added, due to us reaching the 8000 byte row limit of SQL Server! The message in the event log is as follows: 'dmLog: New size of the attribute ({B806C9CD-554F-4BA6-80C2-0906640276BE}) exceeds the SQL Server row limit of 8000 bytes.' This really leaves us in a bit of a pickle, because: a) We n...

I need to change my keyboard to insert the degree sign not ^.
I type medical documents and need to type the degree sign very often. Using the symbol area and then picking my choice is slowing down my work. I had changed this in my previous Word programs, but I can't figure out how to do it with 7. HELP. The built-in keyboard shortcut is Ctrl+@, Spacebar (that is, on U.S. keyboards, Ctrl+Shift+2, Spacebar). If that's a stretch for you (as it is for me), you may want to assign an easier shortcut; in the Symbol dialog, click on the Shortcut Key... button, type your desired shortcut, and click Assign. -- Suzanne S.

How do I insert space between 2 consecutive columns of an XL Shee.

Can't insert Char(1) into SQL Server from Stored Procedure
Hello I am trying to insert a char(1) field into a table from an ASP.Net/C# application. At first I was inserting rows into the table but none of the columns that I was inserting the rows into were char(1) columns, they were mostly int and varchar columns. Then I found out that there was one column in the list that was not supposed to be an int column but instead it was supposed to be one of the char(1) columns into the table. So I replaced the int column in the list with the char(1) column and since the value of the char(1) column resulted from a CheckBox ('Y...

Can you insert a picture into a specific cell?
Or do they only "float" on the page. Marc They float over the worksheet, but you can adjust the size so that it seems to fit a cell exactly. If you insert a picture, you can hold the alt-key down while you move/resize the picture. When it gets close to the edge of a cell, it'll snap-to that edge.
