WM_QUERYENDSESSION and saving data through a worker thread
I have an application that uses a worker thread to save/load data.
I'm wondering what is the best reaction to WM_QUERYENDSESSION in my case.
I have to possible scenarios:
1. When WM_QUERYENDSESSION comes fire the thread and wait for it to end.
Only then return TRUE from WM_QUERYENDSESSION handler.
The problem is that I will get nusty dialog that my application "is not

I have developed software in Acces XP that is distributed to two different

Sometimes the data in listboxes or combo boxes is invisible. The data IS

can't see which ones you're selecting). The combo boxes are poplulated and
have the correct dropdown length for the records one would expect. The

I need to move data that meets a certain criteria, to another sheet within a
workbook. For instance, if a column of data is for a certain ZIP code area, I
need it to automatically copy to a sheet for that city. Say, 40202 would go
to the Louisville, KY sheet. Because Louisville has multiple ZIPs, I would
need only the data that begins with 402 to go to that sheet. Lexington KY's
data, which begins with ZIP code 405, would go to its own sheet. Macro?
This can definitely not be created with a formula. I suggest that you make
use of the macros.

I am creating XML from SQL2000 using a vb.net page, then posting it to

The remote server requires that the xml contain no line breaks, but
there are some ntext fields in the database that contain long text
with line breaks.
How do I get rid of the line breaks? Can I do this with the
XmlTextWriter, or do I need to handle each affected field seperately

Is there a way to export all of the data from MS-CRM?
Thats a rather general question,......you mean export to another CRM system
or just export into another medium?
For the most part, most areas have that little excel icon so that you can
export into excel......
or you can go into the SQL server and use the export wizard, although I
don't think its going to be what you want,....for the most part it will be
raw data and you'll have to recreate the relationships and primary fields to
see how the objects relate..........

Sounds like a test question. What's the context? Is it asking about
numerical formats? Or is it asking about date v. time v. other numerical
