[Access 2007] How to edit custom menubar created in Access2003?
This is my first post to this server, Hello everyone.
We're working on a database created by my collegue in MS Access 2003. Since
some time we've moved to MS Access 2007. Now we find problems editing the
menubar. Each time we want to remove/add/alter a menu item my collegue goes
to his MS Access 2003 and changes a menu.
In 2007 the full menubar is visible under Add-Ins ribbon menu.
Normally there should be a system table USysRibbon, but it is not there.
There are only MSys* objects. How can we change the menubar directly in MS

A form has a variable that is initialized (by some function call) in
Form_Load() and then stays unchanged for the form's entire lifetime.
(In a language more advanced than VBA, it would be a constant, not a
variable; unfortunately, in VBA I cannot initialize a constant by non-
constant expression). Specifically, in my case it looks like this:
Private sTempFileName as String
Private Sub Form_Load()
sTempFileName = GenerateTempFileName(...)

...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

We have some users that we have directed to only get their information
from a report that has been set up. Because of that, I set up a
parameter query to make the information more easy to see.
The parameter query prompts for last name or broker #, is there a
way, when the last name is entered to include Jr's & Sr's? Or should
this be another field in the table to make the last name field more
...Access 97/2000/2003 comparisons
I have a rather large application that uses an access 97 database (DAO). We
also have a version that works with access 2000, Oracle, msde, and SQLServer
(ADO). We would like to retire the DAO version of the product, but there are
places where the ADO version is much slower compared to where we run DAO
seeks (very noticeable when looping). So, I have a few questions.
1. Are there any tips/tricks to speed up ADO queries to compare with DAO
2. Would there be any benifit in using access 2003 over previous versions of
the software besides the added features (xml support, etc).

I have multiple domains setup on my exchange server. Lets say abc.com,
def.com, and hij.com. We only send email with @abc.com but can receive

brought back their email to our server, lets say xyz.com. Now I
configured a new recipient on Exchange 2003, so I now have two
policies. The first policy has the three original domains in it with

I have a macro that is generating Excel files. When the macro runs, it saves
two different tabs in the workbooks as values. It needs to test and wait
until the formulas that are pulling amounts from another database are
correctly populated with the amounts.
Right now, I am getting N/A# instead of amounts for some, but not all, of
the files. I think the problem is that the formulas have not completed
pulling the amounts before the macro pastes that tab as zeros. (N/A# is what
appears when the formulas have not completed calculating - once they have
completed, the N/A# is replaced ...Using later version of microsoft access
I've got access 2000 on my computer. When I go to open a database someone
sent me I get an error message :
this database is in an unrecognized format. The database may have been
created with a later version of microsoft access.
Is there any way I can open and use this file (short of upgrading to later
version of access)?
If you do not have Access 2002 or 2003, ask the person to save it in Access
2000 format for you.

rather than having to add individual wrap points to the edge of a frame,
which is never as accurate anyway, can they be set to 'snap' to a frame (eg
the ellipse) so that they are perfectly inline, (and which would of course be
a lot quicker)?
Edit points will not snap. There are options for edit points, select a point,
right click. If you hold down control, the cursor will turn into an x, you can
delete a point with a click.
Truly a good draw program would be preferable.

I assume you mean the font size? There is no text height available in Excel.
A comment has a shape property and that is what you can use to change the font size.
