Yet another timers-and-threads question
I've got a requirement to be able to set a timer and be told when it
expires, eg by a callback.
SetTimer with WM_TIMER is not generally useful, as you have to have a
window, and some of the threads in which I want to do this don't have
SetTimer with callback function is not generally useful, as it's not
sufficient that there's a message pump somewhere in the *application*, there
has to be a message pump in the *thread* that calls SetTimer (well
documented, that, not), and some of the threads in which I want to do this
don't have message pumps.
CreateWaitableTime...Control Outlook Calendar permissions

permissions? I want to set the default permissions to reviewer on all users
Or is there another way to set this.

Using Outlook 2003...
Whenever I open the Outlook Address Book, a dialog pops up telling me that
the contact list associated with the address book can't be opened. Problem
is, there are clearly contacts listed in Outlook.
It gets really wierd when I check the properties for the address boon under
"Tools --> Email Accounts --> View or Change existing directories or address
books." There's nothing listed in there, yet there's a contacts folder
listed in the "Show names from" dropdown in the address book dialog.
So... How do I delete the current, e...Simple (I bet) Newbie question...
I hope this is possible to have happen all in 1 formula
How can i compose a formula that would acheive the following:
If the number in J5 is at least 10,000 but up to 24,999 then multiply cell
I5 X B5
If the number in J5 is at least 25,000 but up to 49,999 then multiply cell
I5 X C5
If the number in J5 is at least 50,000 but up to 99,999 then multiply cell
I5 X D5
If the number in J5 is over 100,000 or above then multiply cell I5 X E5
If the number in J5 is UNDER 10,000 then display "Under Min" (or something
Thanks for reading!!
The formula should be enter...Version Control with Dynamics.vba
Does anyone have a good system for version control with dynamics vba
programming? I have had problems with dynamics.vba becoming corrupted in
the past - I lost work each and every time. It was suggested to me that
Sourcesafe, ironically, was the culprit. I don't know for certain that that
was the case. At any rate, Dynamics.vba, Forms.dic, Reports.dic, .frxs and
..frms all need to be under version control.
Any recommendations or comments would be appreciated.

I just learned a bit about VARPTR and STRPTR. So I wrote some code

I inadvertently deleted the MSN Stock Watch list from my Portfolio Manager.
Now, despite the list still being in existence under my Passport, I cannot
seem to restore it intact into Portfolio Manager via either Money 2006 Deluxe
or MSN Money.
I'd greatly appreciate any insight from those who may know how to restore
this list as an active Portfolio Manager account, which would be much more
preferable to creating a new watch list, which would not only not auto-sync
with the entries made from the MSN pages, but would also require re-entry of
the huge list I have now. I really want m...Money Bug 03/04: Stock Changes it's name but Maoney wont let that happen.
I have seen this in Money 2003 and now 2004.
A company, such as DELL changes it's name but not is it symbol. When I
download transactions Money asks if the new name is the same investment
as the old name (obviously it is as they have the same symbol).
I say yes it is the same. Money asks "Are You Sure Dell Computers is the
same as Dell Inc". Regardless of how I answer this confirm It asks the
first question again, and again and again and again until I admit that
Dell Inc is NOT Dell Computer. Only then can I continue the reconcile.

First, thx for your replies on my first question.

languages German, English and French. Can i manipulate the buttons and labels

possible with the file dialog which uses explorer style? thx

I have several books that are all in the same folder (master templates)
I'd like to link them with out recording the "full path", that way I can

pointing back to the files in the master template folder.
Can I declare some kind of variable %HERE% so that the linked files always
searches the folder where the current file is located?
Thanks for any suggestions.
Once way to do it that always works is to open the several files from the master folder, then save

I'm running exchange 2003 on SBS 2003 and have come across a difficult
situation. Maybe one of you can help. Our client has the SBS inside
their network and are using Outlook 2003 to interface with the Exchange
server. They also have a POP3 server that sits out on the 'net. We
have configured each client with an Exchange mail box as well as access
to their POP3 account. When Outlook sends and receives it collects from
both the local Exchange server as well as the POP3 boxes. When a user
sends they use the Exchange server. Pretty straight forward so far.

I use Word as my email editor in Outlook. From time to
time, and apparently only for some email messages, Outlook
automatically adds the "control toolbox" toolbar to the
message reply window. Typically, in addition to the
toolbar, a small box of some sort opens in the text box
portion of the message window. I have no need for the
toolbar or the additional box, but even after I eliminate
the toolbar and close the additional box I typically find
that every time I open a new message window the toolbar
and box reappear. Is there some way to prevent this from

I am ready to upgrade the PC that acts as the server and back office PC for
a setup running 2 POS lanes and 2 manager PC's that do not run POS.
A few years ago it was setup with a XP pro, Pentium 4, 2.8GHz with 1 GB
ram. Performance was fine, but now with several years of data, running sales
history reports or movement reports is getting very slow.
What is the biggest bottleneck for running these reports, hard drive speed,

I am posting a link to an excel spreadsheet to our website. The spreadsheet
contains dropdown boxes and when the spreadsheet is downloaded from the site
and you click on the drop down a box pops up that says in order to use the

when I close the 2nd window the web page is blank. 1. Do you know of a way
around the pop up to open a 2nd window, and 2. why is the web page blank when
the 2nd excel window is closed and how can I correct that?

...Create ItemCheck event with Listview from Common Controls 5.0
Hello, I'm using the Listview from MS Common Controls 5.0, because it supports XP style and I'm
adding checkboxes with the LVS_EX_CHECKBOXES constant.
This works fine, but when the user clicks on a checkbox, the data from that row needs to be copied to
an other Listview and some other things need to be done. The problem is that the 5.0 Listview doesn't
have an ItemCheck event, like the 6.0 Listview does.
I can get the state of the checkbox manually with SendMessage and the LVM_GETITEMSTATE
constant, but then I have to loop through the Listview continuously. Is there a way...out of office question

Query2 retrieves data for 5,000 records from another series of linked tables

Should there be a simple join between Query1 and Query2 on Customer ID, or
