OK, now I've really had it! This is my last resort!
Several years ago, while using Money 97, our computer
crashed. We had backed up every time we used money, so I
thought we were OK. However, we could never get the
backup file to pull up after fixing the computer and
everything was lost. I vowed that this would not happen
again, so I tried backing up on a ZIP disk instead, and
then on CDs. I also got on this newsgroup and got the
advice that I needed to first copy the backup file onto
the desktop and open it from there. I tried doing that
with the old program, and it seeme...Fax Icon on my File menu and toolbar
I had a Fax Icon on my toolbar and also on the file menu. All of a sudden it
is gone and I want it back. Where did it go?
Was it a dedicated toolbar? Or was it just icons on a builtin toolbar?
If it was a dedicated toolbar, you may get lucky and find it under:
(just not selected)
But if it was on a builtin toolbar (along with the file menu), then maybe you
reset your toolbar--also under:
selecting a toolbar and hitting the reset button.
If that's what happened, I think I might try to find the Fax addin/workbook that

I need to export outlook 2000 to a database- attachments
and all. Is there a simple way to do this so you can search
and retreive messages and attachments in a database form?
You can export individual folders to access or excel to have them available
for searching. I have never tried to export my entire .pst file to access
or excel however.

Hello All -
I need some ACCESS insight...please...
Several years ago, I built an access db to track my business
scheduling and accounts payable/receivable.
So this database is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO ME.
The file has grown to 140 MB.
Today I made a copy of the file and then edited my calendar table.
I removed all columns which had 2006 data (72 totals columns) - the
table had about 144 columns originally.
I then added 72 columns with 2008 headers. These columns are now
blank since I have not added any 2008 data yet. Afterwards, I looked
around and everything looks good - my 2007 data is the...a few basic question about resource files
I have an application that uses resource files to contain the string values
for each language.
I have created the required resource files in my project, but I don't speak
the languages I wish to have resources for.
What I would like to do, is somehow allow the end user to edit the resource
file themselves so they can set the string values as needed.
Is there a way to edit the resource files that ship with my application and
get installed ?
Is there a way to have external resource files (not embedded into my
application) that can be updated/replaced with o...Exporting contacts in a csv file

If I want B10 to B17 all follow the change of the same number(copy cell),
let's say I put it in A1,
and C10 follows the change of A2(copy cell), and C11 follows the change of
A3(copy cell), and C12 follows the change of A4(copy cell),
then I have 4 variables in my calculations: A1, A2, A3, A4.
I want to loop each of the variables in a different set,
then I hope the whole worksheet will be able to refresh following the change
