help with log file
Got a database in SQL2005 that is basically a download of a daily flat text
files and creating tables from them.
The log.ldf file is frikkin huge. It's over 146GB and I don't need this, I
have storage issues. How do I shorten down this file and keep it small
Have you read about managing the transaction log in the Books Online?
How big is your database?
What recovery model are you in?
What kinds of backups are you doing, and how frequently?
If you are not in SIMPLE recovery, and you don't back up your log, it will
continue to grow. Even...Folders disappearing after compacting file cabinet
Twice, now, I've lost a good chunk of e-mail I've saved in different folders
because I've compacted my file cabinet. Anything with a file folder named
with E or beyond gets dumped. A through D only remains. Any ideas as to
what's going on? Thanks!
Did you compact or run ScanPST.EXE? I've never heard of a compact deleting
valid data unless, of course, the file was damaged before running the
compact. I hate to ask but do you have a backup of your PST from before this

I wonder if anyone can help me with a VBA routine to check for the presence

The file is saved on a dialy basis in the format "userfile_run_YYYYMMDD.xls"

I'm running Exchange 5.5 on NT4/2000. I'd like to phase out a 5.5 box on
NT4. I already migrated the mailboxes from that box to a new one running
2000 in the same Site. What's left are the Public Folders. So for that
I've set up replication from the NT4 to the new 2000 box. After waiting
a couple of days and checking if al folders have an in-sync replica, I
found out that a whole bunch of folders, never got replicated.
Reenabling them for replication, doesn't have any effect. Basically I'm

It means that the program you're trying to run is 16-bit. There is NO 16-bit
support in any 64-bit version of Windows. You'll need to run the application
in a virtual machine running some earlier version of Windows.

Feel a bit silly.
I want to insert a =Now() Date field on every new record created via a
certain form. I don't want people seeing this info.
So, I added AphaDate Date field to the table the query for this form is
based on. I insert the field on the form and mark it hidden. In the
properties for this field on the form, I say the default value =Now()
I assume then that any new record created will "stamp" with this date. But
it doesn't work When I create the table, add the field to the query and try
to set this up, the field shows up as blank no matter what I do.

...Closely held secrets about junk email folder
Within my company, we occassionally send HTML formatted emails that end
up in user's junk email folders and we have no idea why. In one
instance it was a message that contained a large table structure in the
body of the message, but once we preceeded the table with an empty <p>
tag, it succeeded in going to the intended recipients. So in this case,
it really wasn't the fact that we were targetting too many individuals,
or that certain words were found in the message, it was just a silly
design thing (apparently) that had caused the problem.

My HD failed but I had a backup of my Office XP Pro personal file folder
with a lot of emails I needed. The file is about 128MB in size. I put a new
HD in and installed Office 2003 Pro. When I go to open the old file Outlook
2003 says that the file "is not a personal folders file". (It was backed up
to a CD ROM prior to the crash so the source file should be good.) I really
don't want to uninstall Office 2003 and put back Office XP. Any idea why
2003 won't open the file and how to work around that? Many thanks in advance
to anyone who knows the solution. Alan.
