Can't open shared access database with double click from explorer.
While trying to diagnose Access 2007 corrupting Access 2000 databases, I've
come across a situation where if I try to double click an MDB file on a
shared network drive, nothing happens. Access doesn't start (either with
access 2000 or access 2007).
However, if I wait til I get the "Open File - Security Warning" on one
machine, then double click it on the other, then I can open it on both
In addition, I can always open it from the open menu in access.
Obviously something to do with the open file warning is going on here. Is

Hello. I have a Excel file that contains a large list of Tracking Numbers.
The tracking numbers are from two sets of order types- Internet orders and
Orders that are from the Internet are matched up with a order number such as
"5678". Orders from the mail-order side are designated by initials "MO".
So in Excel it'll look something like this:

Greetings to all members
I am running Excel 97.
An office colleague presented me with an issue that might be of interest to
any Excel whiz and seasoned programmers. I would certainly appreciate any
pointers in solving it. So here goes.
The set of values includes 33 cells ranging from B4:D14. The data type is
numeric. Data is only input in a few cells.
What would be the function to enter in, say, cell A15 to indicate the total
number of cells in range B4:D14 that have received data input? Or does it
involve some behind the scene VBA programming?
B6 = 9 C9 = 4 D11 ...How do I protect one single cell?
I have a spreadsheet where people are going to type in numbers, and
the final cell is a total, which of course I don't want people to
accidentally type over, as it will lose the formula behind it.
So...... I put some "data validation" behind that cell, to say only
allow entries of text length = 50 - a kind of "mock" condition.
Nobody'e ever gonna type in 50 chars. are they?! And sure enough,
typing in (eg) 854221 brings up the error box to stop them, just like

Works for me, if I filter on something in one column and the active cell is

2 guesses, your active cell was A1 from the start even though you filtered
you have a recorded macro that was setup to go back to A1

I have read some posts that say to use a table to serve up the paraments and

yet be in the table as they are new or unknown.
Is there any way to do this without using an existing table but just accept

I would like to know if someone could give me a formula that will add up some cells?
On a weekly time sheet if I put an "X" in a cell by each day for each x if would add $6.00 for parking. So at the end of a 5 day week it would show $30.00 in one cell and if there was only 4 "x"s it would show $24.00 in a total cell.
Mon, 8 hours, "x" /// Tues, 8 hours, "x" and so on....
The X's would be in cells- F8, J8, N8, R8, V8, Z8, AB8 total shows in AF8
Each x = $6.00
