Use sound as a trigger to advance slides

Is it possible to use a sound file in this way?

I'd like the slide to advance at the end of the sound file.

I'm probably out of luck but please someone tell me I don't have to sit here 
and figure out how long each sound file is...

Sorry, you're out of luck. But if you insert the sound, you can right-click 
the icon and choose Properties to see the playing time.

Maybe I'm misunderstanding what you need but if you set the auto slide 
transition to zero (or any time less than the sound file play time) it will 
transition when the sound endsas default and not before. If this is a bit 
abrupt add another animation eg a medium after previous fade rectangle and 
drag the rectangle off slide to make this animation invisible.

Excel Pivottable using data in Access 2002
I have been using Access 2000 to hold tables with lots ( 200,000 rows ) of data. In Access 2000 you can make a Pivottable Form which starts Excel and really makes the pivottable there although the data actually stays in Access. Works great. I've recently gotten Access 2002 which tries to make the Pivottables itself. It's not as good. I want this new verson of Access to work with Excel like the old version. This new verson offers to let me "export" the pivottable, but that tries to start Excel and copy the data in and there's too much data for it to be able to do tha...

Using ZwCreateProcess
Hello, I am trying to call ZwCreateProcess defined in the Windows DDK, and I was curious how I would go about using this to create a process. I cannot find the parameter in which I provide the path to the executable I would like to run. Thanks Why? Seriously, there needs to be a good reason. The undocumented API has its valuable uses, but I'm not sure why ZwCreateProcess would be among them (the most common use of the undocumented API is to get functionality not normally available in the WIn32 API, but CreateProcess already exists). I note that in the WIndows DDK I can't find...
