Disappearing Combobox Text
Just opened up a number of existing databases and found the same problem in
each. It is not possible to see the list of options in a ComboBox although
the list is there. It is as if the fore colour is white and the back colour
is white. If you select one of the options the text then appears in the
control, black text on a white back ground.
As a quick test i have created a new form and inserted a combobox, again the
details of the options is not visible although the selected option text
appears in the control after i make a random selection.
I have checked all the visibility and colou...Save formatted text from RichEdit control to rtf-file

LPTSTR...Creating a new field based on conditions
I have a database that tracks insurance information for our various vendors.
Each insurance type has 2 fields - a requirement field (yes/no), and an
effective field (some show an expiration date, some are yes/no). I have
created a query that will return only the records for which insurance is
required but is expired/missing. My problem is that I want to create a new
field that is calculated based on the values in the other two fields in order
to make the resulting report more user-friendly.
For example, if GLRequired is True and GLExpiration is <Now(), I want the

...Adding a certain text label in a excel chart
I am plotting in regularly basis a certain set of data in excel.
Based on some data analysis this set of data has to be fitted to these
y = 1/x^a (1) and /or
y = b/x^c (2)
from data analysis, constants a, b and c are found and are placed lets say
in cells A1, B1, C1.
On my graph, I am putting then two small text labels where the real equation
is displayed: smth. like: y = 1/ x^3.45 and / or y = 0.256 / x^3.12 The
whole process is similar with excel curve fitting, when the “show equation on
chart” is checked.

The scenario is:
We migrated from an NT domain to a 2000 domain. Then about a year later we
migrated from exchange 5.5 to exchange 2003. Once the migration was complete,
we discovered that there were duplicate containers and OUs in "Active
Directory Users and Computers" which were empty. For example, when we did the
AD migration we created an OU hierarchy at the root of the domain. After the
exchange migration we found a duplicate hierarchy structure under the Users
container but it didnt actually contain any objects/information that was in
the original OU structure.
