Distribution Lists #30
Wasn't sure which would be the best group to post this in.........
We seem to be having some issues with people viewing distribution list
members. The members are not hidden and if I remove the persons permissions
and reapply them it seems to rectify the problem for a little while. I don't
know if it is coincidence or not but most of the people having a problem
seem to be listed as the manager of the DL. I have looked and followed the
article about setting the permissions in security rather than on the managed
by option but this doesn't seem to make a difference.
T...problem with distribution list name
I have a distribution list named Service Electricians. I am unable to use
this list as it always returns an error message - "an unexpected error has
occurred". Someone else in my organization set up the exact same
distribution list with the same name and it works fine. If I change the name
of the list to say "Service Electricians1" it will work with no problems.
Any ideas as to why one distribution list will work and the other will not?
Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance

Really appreciate your help.

I have a problem with a drop down list. The database is located on a server
and each machine has the program loaded locally. All machines but one work
fine when the user selects a simple drop down list, the one machine only
shows a blank list when the user selects the list. I've looked at the
references and everything seems fine there. I've tried reloading the program
but still will not show anything in the list, I've tried changing the font
thinking that maybe it was to large or small, tried opening the list box but
nothing. All other users don't have this problem...List of tables in SQL server database

For exch2003 & outlook2003, after user compose an email with selecting a
dist list from address book, then click send button, how can I configure the
system to automatically expand the dist list to a list of users?
Well, this could be a strange question, but I really want to do that.
This is an Outlook setting. I'd recommend against doing this. If you
insist on it, when you add the DL to the To: line, you should notice a
little + sign next to the DL. If you click on the + sign, Outlook will warn
you that it will replace the DL with a list of members.

How can I increase the size of the font in a drop-down list in Excel?
If it's a data validation dropdown list, you can't change the font size.
There are a couple of workarounds here:
If it's a combobox from the Control toolbox, you can change the font
size by switching to Design view, opening the Properties window, and
changing the Font properties.
If it's a combobox from the Forms toolbar, you can't change the font size.

Is there a way I can create a filter and then turn it on and off using
