Can't Open Recurring Appointment
I have a weekly recurring appointment that won't open. The MS Outlook error
"Can't open this item. You must enter a positive duration."
What is this and how do I rectify it if I can't open the event?
...Can't open Outlook #9
For the last week every time I've tried to launch Outlook
I get the message that program file addin "msspc.ecf"
could not be installed...There is an error in the syntax
or format of the file.
I contacted Microsoft and the fixes sent to me didn't
work. They included replacing the damaged extension,
removing registry entries, and refreshing the extend.dat
file. I also removed and reinstalled Outlook.
Gosh I hope someone has figured this one out. I really
need to get Outlook back.
...A document with the name "xx" is already open......
Opening excel documents directly from the My Documents
folder with the program not open we get the following
"A document with the name "xxx.xls" is already open. You
cannot open ttwo documents with the same name, even if
the documents are in different folders. To open the
second document, either close the document that's
currently open or rename one of the documents"
No other documents are open. When we close the error
message everything is fine.
When we first open Excel and then open from there, we do
not get this error message.

I have an excell sheet where one column contains the address data including
the city. I want to take the city from this field and put it in another

RIGHT functions, but as there are more than one space characters in each
column, it does not work.
Can anybody help.
Thanks for answers

Any suggestions. It should be an easy solution, but I am stuck.
The out-of-the-box default for inserting pictures is a text wrapping of "in

I have a document that was formatted for some ancient page-layout program

The document is huge, so I need to use Replace all to turn all of these into

Laura, you cannot alter the way Access fires its events, so you will need to
learn to work with it.
Typcially when Access opens a form, it fires the subform's Open event before
the main form's. But that does not mean it loads the *records* of the

This opens FormB in the EXTREME upper left of the Access window, where

the middle of FormA?
If you open the form in Design View, and go to properties, on the
Format tab, there is an option to "Auto Center". Set that to yes and
the form will automatically open to the middle of your screen.

The usual way to do something like that is for the subform
to pull the value from the main form in the subform's Open

Not really what I am looking for. As I will be displaying differen
sheets depending on what link is clicked, I don't need to have
default sheet, instead I need to specify a different sheet to b

i.e. A link for the prices sheet opens the spreadsheet on the price

opens the spreadsheet on the sales sheet on the spreadsheet.
Hope that makes more sense,

When I open my spreadsheet, sometimes it opens to a window that only shows the cells I want to see. Other times it opens showing those cells plus several rows and columns larger. Why does it not always show the area that was shown when it was last saved?

I can point to nothing that has caused this, and am hoping that there is
something I can try before resorting to a reinstall.
