A PrintWindow API related sample application in MSDN has this line - The API
uses window redirection to paint a snapshot of the window into the hdc.
What is window redirection? Is it possible to use this outside PrintWindow

I have a VBA application that basically allows people to easily create

I am wondering how/what formula would be needed for creating a custom field

past due. I have a custom field at the task level (IIf([Finish]<[Current

overdue, but I want to add a custom field to the Project Center > Summary
view to show when a project has any overdue tasks. The PM can then drill
down from there into the project and see exactly what tasks are overdue.

In general, you'd use an Update query. However, in this case I don't see why
you'd need such a field.

Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7 share the same code? how is that

As Microsoft is going to use only 64bit versions for servers they don't built
the 32bit version. Sharing the same code doesn't mean that the server OS
use exaclty the same files, there are a lot more and different ones. But
the basic code is the same.

Sorry for the new thread but even on Google, the thread isn't showing up.
Well, it was SOOO easy, as I knew it would be. The webpage I quoted in my

So, here is the non-VBA way to create a custom menu:

option under the Commands window up to the menu bar (like D'UH!! <lol>
