I would like to create a common background for all icons in the toolbar.
In particular, I would like a common background that starts with a light
grey at the top and that then becomes progressively darker at lower levels
of the icon.
I've used an icon editor to extract a icon from programs that have a common
icon background. The extracted icons contain only the icon image but not
the common background. This indicates the common icon background is
implemented separatedly from the icon drawing.
Can anyone describe how a common icon background is implemented?
Thanks in advance.

Thanks to whomever answered my query but when I opened the email the screen
was blank. My laptop is sick. My question was and still is, how can I use my
Excel files created in a recent version on my laptop in my PC which is loaded
only with Excel 4.0a . Please and thanks.
You can't, the file format changes twice since version 4. You need a newer
Excel version, a compatible spreadsheet program, or simply a viewer if all
you want to do is view / print the file.

...Solution: Error 2306: There are too many rows to output (Access to Excel using OutputTo)
I've joined the legions who've encountered this problem with the
OutputTo method in Access:
Run-time error 2306
There are too many rows to output, based on the limitation
specified by the output format or by Microsoft Access
A lot of people seem to have encountered it. The reason is because
OutputTo defaults to an old version of Excel which only allows 16K
A lot of people also suggest using TransferSpreadsheet instead, but
that caused me a lot more problems (putting a single quote in front of
my text data)

To access Outlook contacts, Outlook must be your default e-mail application
in Windows. You can then use Insert Address (which you can add to the QAT

That was until I got to the Vista laptop.
