news:D1390ACA-6...Console app with no console window
I'm trying to replace our fairly crappy scheduler with the NT Task Scheduler to run a console app.
When our scheduler runs this app, it does so with no console window and the app then closes its standard in/out handles. Our scheduler calls CreateProcess() and sets the flag parameter to DETACHED_PROCESS. The command line for the console app includes a /d switch to tell it to close its IO handles.
How would I get the same behaviour when running the console app from the NT Task Scheduler? I've looked at the interface for the task object and can't see anything there that would stop t...Colorize/Clip Art Outlook Folders
Thank you for your response. Can you imagine how great it would be to have
the ability to create your folders to show an image to correspond with the
contents of the folder? For ex. an accounting folder, clip art a $ sign and
so on. For those of us who have many folders, it would be a perfect tool for
'at a glance' to speed up the process of finding the right folder.

I have a chart where the average of the coporation as a whole is used as a
benchmark and then from a drop down list you can select an entity you want to
compare to the benchmark. I am hoping to have the line of the entity change
colors (i.e. from solid black to solid red) if it exceeds the benchmark line.
Is this possible?

"JB12" <JB12...Whole number converts to decimal
Somehow, I've changed a setting in Excel so that when I enter a number (say,
5) into any cell on a blank worksheet (thus, the cell is formatted as
general) and hit enter, the number is automatically converted to .05. The
only way I can stop Excel from doing this is by entering a "." after the
number, so it realizes that I want the whole number. It only does it when
the cell is formatted as General or Number (even when the decimal places is
set to 0 -- putting in 4 will return .04 which displays as a 0). Any ideas?

I am workiing in MFC on an app which has an odd requirement.. for me anyway.
I have only one serial port availbale. The task is that one portion of my
GUI has to send serial data out with EVEN parity. The other, a keypad, has
to send serial data out with ODD parity.
The reciever is always receiving ODD parity.
So.. unless I am wrong.. I am thinking I have to switch to ODD parity before
sending out keypad strings and tehn, when the last character is shifted out
I hvae to set the port back to even parity in time to get the host's

I have a bar chart that shows the top 5 40 segments broken down by each

groups. So 1-5 may be one group, 6-13 will be another. When I color code
all turn the same color. I would like to conditional format on the
worksheet. Can that transfer to the chart? How do I manually make the
segments change. Each territory will not have the same top 5 segments, thus
using pivot to help with this task. The top 5 are from a generated report.
I could bring all 40 but will still want to graph top 5.
