ACCESS on a new iBook?
Has anyone any experience on running Access under Virtual PC or similar? I
have a new model iBook 1.42 Ghz, 512MB RAM (soon to be upped to 1 GB) and
I'm wanting it to brush up my knowledge for use at work so won't be using
huge data sets, just playing with new builds & small amounts of test data.
I don't really want to buy an old PC just for this so just wanted to check
it wouldn't be unusably slow under virtualisation software.
Any advice greatly appreciated.

I want to keep certain text together and not have it split apart over columns
or on a new page: like several lines comprising an address in an address
book -- I want to keep it all together.
Either apply a style with the Keep With Next paragraph format option to all
but the last of the paragraphs you wish to keep together
Use Shift+Enter to make a line break within the same paragraph

Hi Christina -
There are a couple of well written Excel add-ins you can download to do

Operating System: Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard)
I am trying to allow users to click on the SmartArt Graphic on my first page and automatically go to the respective page within the document. I click next to the wording on the graphic and go to Insert, but it will not allow me to insert the cross reference. You can do it the other way around - from the text to the graphic, but not from the graphic to the text. Anyone know a way around this or another way to do it?

I want to set up the right hand portion of my page to have a line down the
margin and to have the word "NOTES" to appear at the top of this margin or
column for each page.
I write many college papers and I want the reader to have the courtesy to
have a separate "NOTE" column for his own use as he/she reads the paper.
Type the word "NOTES" in a text box that you anchor to the header paragraph;
that way, it will be repeated on all pages using the header in question. For
more, see http://sbarnhill.mvps.org/WordFAQs/AnchorToHeader.htm.

I'm using Access 2003 and have what at first seems like a common problem. On
one of my forms if a user hits the scroll button on the mouse, it scrolls to
a new record which then causes problems. I don't have sufficient rights to
deploy a dll file so I got around it by changing the AllowAdditions setting
to "No". Theoretically that should have worked and indeed it does if I open
up a form directly. But in this database I often open up a form to a
particular record using the "Where Condition" argument of the DoCmd.OpenForm
command. When I do that, it opens...Adding Property pages from Dll?

I have Outlook 2000 SR-1 using IMO (Internet Mail Only - not Exchange

new mail message? For reasons too lengthy to get into, it would be very
helpful for me to see the From: field (with my default email address already
filled in, of course) as well as they typical To:, CC: and Subject: fields
when composing a new email.
I did try to create a new form (Tools >Forms >Design a Form >Message) but
when I used it, the default email address did not appear.

If I am in a Case and I create a new Email for that case, the To: address is
by default populated with the Account associated with that Case. In most

Instead of the Account, I would like it to be pre-populated with the

I can change this manually, but it requires many steps.
