Here is fix for Windows file problems
If you have installed a Windows update and started having problems opening,
closing, copying files, see:
...Excel problem, File disappeared.
I created a file in Excel on a WinXP PC that I called
pron.xls and saved it in the my documents folder, I then
decided to move it and using Windows Commander F6 key
(Rename and Move) I attempted to move it to a different
folder and rename it to prn.xls at the same time.
This process caused the file to disappear!!
I now realise that this was because prn.xls is an invalid
I tried to search for the original and new names but
neither existed. There is no sign of it in the recycle bin
Is there anyway of retreiving the lost data?

Apologies for the cross posting, but I'm not sure which is th ebest
newsgroup to help...
I'm Running a server with SBS 2003 & exchange. Installed CRM1.2 (at the
moment it's only on the server & I can access via the web). I've not yet
installed the Outlook client on my laptop.
The problem is that I've been experiencing major "hangup" problems when
connecting my laptop to the server. Everything works fine until I open up
Outlook, then, although I an "ping" the server I am unable to access it
either from Outlook to synchronise emails, ...sort problems
Using Publisher 2000 and mail merge - large input excel files - sort sequence
is crucial but does not hold. Doing a 20K pice mailing and addresses print
out in basically no sequence at all - I've broken database down to 2000 names
at a time - it will print 10 in sequence, skip 20, print 10 in sequence, skip
10 then eventually goes back and randomly picks up skipped addresses. I know
the file is sorted going in. With mailings this big, this is a MAJOR problem.
Anyone know what's happening here. How to solve?

I have a table of ecards that is populated from a website and includes
receiver, sender, and Team leader. The problem I am having is names can be
entered into the table like this "Tom Thumb", but Team leader is a dropdown
menu that is constant and lists name like this: "Tom S. Thumb". When I make a
query to find all the members of Tom S. Thumb's team, I get everyone except
Tom Thumb, who is member too. Tom Thumb has his own higher team leader, so I
can't change that. How do I get Tom Thumb to be included when I enter "Tom S.
Thumb" as Team Leader?

The problem is only on one computer, the user is
receiving emails from people outside OK, but emails sent
internally is another matter. Internal emails although
they seem to be being received because the sound alert

that PC to another internal PC on the LAN is not working.

Several of my accounts are unable to update information online using MS Money
- ING Direct
- Bestbuy Card (HSBC)
- Bank of America
This is frustrating!! Anyone else with the same problems?
Just keep trying, eventually it will work. If you're in a bind, download the
QIF or OFX files from the institutions web sites -- B of A works better that
way anyway :)

I am trying to convert an Access 97 database to Access
2000 but with great difficulty.
If I try to load it in Access 2000, the conversion is
attempted but on the apparent completion the new database
is not saved and the screen is blank.
If I try creating a new database and importing everything
then this works fine for the data, but no reports or forms
I have tried all the latest patches to MS Office.
Any suggestions would be very welcome.
I'm using this to copy a file...but it keeps turning red.
FileCopy ('\\Backoffice\Data.mdb', '\\Backoffice\Trash')
I'm copying Data.mdb to the Trash folder.
Gotta be the syntax.
Several things appear to be incorrect.
First, FileCopy doesn't accept parentheses.
Second, \\Backoffice\Data.mdb isn't a valid UNC (you're missing either the
server name or the share name)
Third, you need a complete file for the destination, not just a folder name.

I have a Win32 project that uses the IPicture class.
Here is how I load the picture:
OleLoadPicturePath (path, 0, 0, 0x00ffffff, IID_IPicture, (LPVOID *) &pic);
everything is fine accept this:
the 4th parameter in that function is the color that should be transparent
when rendering but it doesn't work. I have a totally white picture and still
it draws it.
I read in MSDN that only Metafiles and icons can be transparent but even
when i made an icon picture it still wasn't transparent. I also confirmed
that the picture had the transparent attribute using pic->Get_Attribu...Outlook 2003 Folder & Favorite-folder synch/update problems
I've been using Outlook since 1998 and I make my living at software support,
so I'm usually hard to stump, but I'm sucking wind on this one. The
problems below all started on the remote Outlook copy, so I have to imagine
they're connected to the remote setup and OST files. But I've been through
the settings and tried to re-synch, cleared the folder store and recreated
it, etc., and nothing seems to correct the problems. Can anyone suggest a
systematic way to diagnose and fix what's happening?

I am writing a Port Driver for x86 platform in WinCE 6.0. I want to

as 0x57 (meaning Parameter incorrect).

Could mismatched memory modules be the reason why my computer freezes

Hi guys. First time poster here so be gentle with me. I am looking fo
some assistance averaging a range of 1 to 3 numbers.
Here is what I have so far.
This works great. What it does is checks to see if there is a value i
the cell, then counts it and divides by the right number. I.E if yo
only have two values out of 3 filled in it divides the number by tw
instead of 3.
My problem... if all 3 fields are 0 then I get a divide by 0 error.

There are 2 active accounts in this Outlook 2003 setup.
1. Connects to an internal Exchange 5.5 server - this server does not have
internet access and is only used for internal email between employees (set
as Default account in Outlook)
2. Internet email account hosted by an outside vendor.
Here's the problem. When you create a new message and use a combination of
email address that points to an internet email (Ex. email@example.com) and
addresses from the global address list (firstname.lastname@example.org), then select to
use the internal Exchange account to send it, everything works fine. But if
