HELP scanpst.exe fails

Outlook 2000 fails to open and recommends running the 
inbox repair tool. When running the tool it fails and 
gives the following error message:

An error has occurred which caused the scan to stop. No 
changes have been made to the scanned file.

The .pst file is 1.96 GB. The mail is downaloaded from our 
ISP, so it resides only on the .pst. We need to resolve 
this problem ASAP. PLEASE HELP!

Thanks in advance,

Emjay

Your .PST file is dangerously close to the 2GB limit.  If scanpst.exe isn't
working, you may need to use the crop tool.  Look here for the information
you need to hopefully recover at least some of your data:

Thanks for the advice. I tried editing the .pst with a hex 
editor as indicated here:

http://www.slipstick.com/problems/scanpst.htm

I then ran scanpst.exe again and successfully repaired the 
file. I did not have to use the crop tool. The user is now 
cleaning up the email to reduce the amount. I'll then 
setup an archive schedule to keep it at a manageable size. 
The slipstick site is great - excellent advice and 
infromation. I even pulled out my old sliderule and used 
it!

Thanks again,

Emjay

Strange "button"
I got an .xls from someone and had to populate some cells with data extracted from the application database, which I did OK.

I can't select it, like I can do with the forms controls I'm used to work with, although it appears to be a normal command-button. What could that object be? And how could I simply get rid of that?
