Retrieve an External File, pdf, txt, jpeg... etc
I have a generic folder (c:/database/folder/)with a many different files that
need to be referenced on a regular basis. The worst part is finding the file
that is needed. What I am trying to do is to have the user add on a form the
name of the file with the extension (such as .pdf, .doc, .txt, .jpg) where
such information is stored. So lets say as an example that we want to
retrieve the file name adobe.pdf. Using a form, how can I have a pull the
exact file? Again, all files are stored in the same folder and path.
Thanks in advanced!!

Pivot Tables are great with small datasets.
Does anyone have suggestions of products that can datasource from a
ODBC source and manage large datasets (1M+ rows), visualizing the dat
in a crosstab/pivottable format ?
Unfortunately the underlying logic in the PivotTable/MSquery link isn'
too intelligent in that is always wants to read the whole darn databas
table before even presenting a field list. I assume this is due to th
abstraction of the data created by sticking MS/Query inbetween th
Excel pivot table service and the actual datasource?

When sending large files to Yahoo or other external mailboxes I receive the

My understanding is that this message was rejected by the receiving mailbox

I have been searching in vain for a solution to this problem for quite

network file. I can create new files on the network without a problem.
Also, no other programs installed on my machine have this problem
(notpad, Word, etc.). I have checked my network permissions and I have
every permission available on the target directory with the exception
of "Full Control", "Change Permissions", and "Take Ownership".

...Print to a file
My program has some methods that print to a printer OK. But I need to put
those files afterwards so it would be better to print them to a file first.
The program calls GetPrinterDC() before starting the printing.
Is there some update that will permit the user to print to a file?
Glad to see you.
Generally speaking, if you want to save and add the information in current

the src dc to the bmp.

We're upgrading our system from Access 2000 to Access 2003. I'm aware
that version 2000 databases can be opened in Access 2003 without conversion,
and it did, in fact open, but are there any benefits to converting the
database to version 2003? Or, are there reasons why our 2000 database
should NOT be converted to 2003? It's hard to beleive that it wouldn't
matter one way or the other, and think there must be some advantage to
converting to a file format of "2003" if we're using Access 2003.
Many thanks in advance.
