[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(...)

My database window with the listings of forms tables etc was adjusted to a

I would like to send the same e-mail to many differnet people with
one or two fields changed (for example the name of recipient and the
date).How canthis be done?? I would also like to be able to save the
e-mail and use it again and again.
can anyone help
If you have Word installed and it's the same version as Outlook (both 2003,
for example), you can do a mail merge between the two. This would allow you
to set up the text the way you want it to, and you can save the document for
future use. Look at the following page for further information:

This is driving me crazy. If I already have Excel open (with or with out a
spreadsheet open) I cannot open an Excel spreadsheet attached to an e-mail.
If I close Excel and retry it will open Excel and the spreadsheet.
Any ideas? I hate having to close all my open spreadsheets when I want to
open a spreadsheet that's been e-mailed to me!

You're being spammed. First...Killer macro idea for business mailings
One of you programmers should write a macro to validate a city from zip
code. I receive excel files from response cards and a lot of people will put
some random letters for their city instead of the actual city name, or maybe
they'll put the wrong abrieviation for their state. It would be awesome if
all the zipcodes could validate the state field and change if necessary and
the same for the city fields too.
Okay, have at it :)
Okay, well good idea I think anyways, but it turns out that my columns just
weren't wide enough so it didn't display more then 2 letters.
...users with restricted access
We have some users that we have directed to only get their information

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).
3...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.

I have outlook set up to send/receive every minute but it suddenly stopped
doing so. Anyone have ideas why?
Several. For starters, a one minute polling interval is just nuts.
It is difficult to determine why automatic polling is failing when you do
not post your mail account type, connection type and polling settings. If
automatic polling once worked and now fails, you also need to examine what
changes were made to your setup before automatic polling stopped working.
In general, here are the reasons automatic polling might fail in Outlook:

The junk mail filters has stopped filtering mail. The address shows in the
list of blocked addresses but the mail is not filtered. The filter worked
fine in WLM but I don't think it has worked since I loaded the Beta.
Where exactly are you looking when you say the address is the same as the one
in your Blocked Senders? The From line may not show the true entry, look at the
entry in the From field you see after pressing Ctrl+F3 on that message.

What happens when you try?

only gives me the option of saving the attachment.

Why is Word 2007 opening all my email attachments?
It probably isn't.
Outlook 2007 has a new text editor that looks just like Word 2007, but it is
