I had a Fax Icon on my toolbar and also on the file menu. All of a sudden it
is gone and I want it back. Where did it go?
Was it a dedicated toolbar? Or was it just icons on a builtin toolbar?
If it was a dedicated toolbar, you may get lucky and find it under:
(just not selected)
But if it was on a builtin toolbar (along with the file menu), then maybe you
reset your toolbar--also under:
selecting a toolbar and hitting the reset button.
If that's what happened, I think I might try to find the Fax addin/workbook that

You can export individual folders to access or excel to have them available
for searching. I have never tried to export my entire .pst file to access
or excel however.

...Cannot open Excel attachment from e-mail when Excel is already ope
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!
One of these usually works with a similar problem starting workbooks by double
clicking them in Windows Explorer. Maybe one will work for you and your email

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

constant expression). Specifically, in my case it looks like this:

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:

Hello All -

Several years ago, I built an access db to track my business

So this database is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO ME.
The file has grown to 140 MB.
Today I made a copy of the file and then edited my calendar table.
I removed all columns which had 2006 data (72 totals columns) - the
table had about 144 columns originally.
I then added 72 columns with 2008 headers. These columns are now

I have an application that uses resource files to contain the string values

I have created the required resource files in my project, but I don't speak

What I would like to do, is somehow allow the end user to edit the resource
file themselves so they can set the string values as needed.
Is there a way to edit the resource files that ship with my application and
get installed ?

I recently started having troubles with my Publisher 2003. Whenever I go to
save my files now, using save as or just the save button, it gives me a
dialog box that says "Can not save file." It does that twice, then it
disappears. I also noticed that when it does this, it leaves the .tmp files
in the directory where I tried to save. I can change the name of the files,
and sometimes it will save it. Most of the time not though. I have NAV, and I
noticed that it was said there was an issue with Publisher and NAV. Is this
