PS2007 - Can't Access SharePoint Central Admin!

I was trying to troubleshoot a problem and checking to see if services in 
SharePoint Central Admin were running. I must have accidently clicked when 
rolling over the start and stop as I got kicked out of Central Admin and 
can't get back in. How does one restart if stopped or regain access??? 
Services generally allow you to stop and restart. 

Where do I go to restore access. Everything seems to be running ok, but it 
wont let me access Central Admin in the server. Anybody know how to restore

Hi Rick. Fear not, thankfully, there is a stsadm command to help start the 
service for you again. Syntax is as follows:

stsadm -o provisionservice -action start -servicename WSS_Administration 
-servicetype  Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.SPWebService

For those not familiar with stsadm, its a SharePoint command line tool 
typically located under the following path:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server 

Navigate to this path in a command prompt window (windows key + r, then type 
cmd and enter). Type 'cd "[THE ABOVE PATH]" ' then enter to navigate to the 
SharePoint bin folder. type 'stsadm -help' to view a list of all available 
stsadm methods or paste in the above command text to start the central 
administration service.

Contract Admin
Does anyone know of a bill frequency less than "Annual". I'm trying to use C.A. to bill installation, then recognize the revenue over the term automatically. The problem I have is that if a term is greater than a year, the customer will receive more than one invoice. Ex. if a term is 3 years, the customer will receive 3 invoices, 1 each year. I only want the customer to receive 1 invoice (per the installation event), but then to recognize the revenue over the contract term. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. -- John J Hi John, The best way to do this is to...

Getting SharePoint to work in the xRM demo VPC
I have the standard demo VPC that uses the MicrosoftCRM organization. When I try to open SharePoint CA or even the default site collection, I get an IE error suggesting I'm not connected to the Internet.

I'm not sure which VPC you are referring to, but generally Microsoft doesn't release VPCs that need to connect to the Internet or that can connect to the internet.

Access 2003 to Email issue.
I have a working Access 2003 form that has a button to open a report and send a email. This makes the report an attachment in the email. The name of the report is placed in the document as the name of the attachment. I would like to add the "variable" EmployeeName so that it appears in the attachment name.

Change Data Connection Definitions from local to sharepoint
Hi, I am using Excel 2007 and have created a query tool/workbook that contains a linked table worksheet from sharepoint as the source data (its a custom view/subset of the records data). This worksheet is refreshed from the sharepoint source periodically. I created this tool/workbook on my desktop, and now want to put it on the sharepoint location for multiple users. However, the Data Connection definition for the linked worksheet is showing the local address of my pc, so the data refresh won't work once the workbook is posted to the sharepoint.

Access Databases, MFC and VS2005
Okay. I'm going to try and ask this as succinctly as possible. When using an Access database in my apps, I've had to derive a recordset for each table. Before you laugh, consider that there are all of 3 tables in each, and each of those has less than 20 columns. My preferred way of using this techniques is to use the wizard to create a class derived from CRecordset and indicate the desired table in the dialogs. It works well but it's a lot of code, particularly if I want to do anything relational between tables. I have read and re re re read the MS docs, but I cannot seem to ...

Allow only one user to access workbook at a time
I need to set excel to allow only one user at a time to access a workbook. The workbook is NOT a shared workbook, but it resides on a network share. Multiple users need to access it, but only One at a time. I want all other users to get a message that the file is in use and they can not open it. Is this possible? I believe that is the standard behavior of a network file that is not shared; users who access the file when it is in use get a message the file is in use and whether they want to open as Read Only. -- Greeting from the Gulf Coast!
