Access 97 can't resize database window
My database window with the listings of forms tables etc was adjusted to a
smaller width, but resizing it is completely disabled and renders Access
2007 utterly useless for me. Is there anyway to 'reset' the window?

...Problem with CFTPConnection
I've an application that connects to an FTP Server and uploads a big
directory (size over 500 MB). Now what happens is that after sometime the
application stops uploading files and stays idle. The FTP server connection
timeout value is set to 2 minutes. So the server seeing the connection idle
for two seconds, disconnect the session and no more file is uploaded. On
debugging I found out that after some time CFTPConnection.PutFile() method
hangs on some random file and stays like that for 5 minutes (default send
timeout value of CFTPSession). During this time the server connection

This is my first post to this server, Hello everyone.
We're working on a database created by my collegue in MS Access 2003. Since
some time we've moved to MS Access 2007. Now we find problems editing the
menubar. Each time we want to remove/add/alter a menu item my collegue goes
to his MS Access 2003 and changes a menu.
In 2007 the full menubar is visible under Add-Ins ribbon menu.
Normally there should be a system table USysRibbon, but it is not there.
There are only MSys* objects. How can we change the menubar directly in MS

A form has a variable that is initialized (by some function call) in
Form_Load() and then stays unchanged for the form's entire lifetime.
(In a language more advanced than VBA, it would be a constant, not a
variable; unfortunately, in VBA I cannot initialize a constant by non-
constant expression). Specifically, in my case it looks like this:
Private sTempFileName as String
Private Sub Form_Load()
sTempFileName = GenerateTempFileName(...)

I have a machine running office 97 and Win XP.
I have seen posts stating it runs fine, but I don't know how man
people use spreadsheets that require a hard calculation:
Excel will not force a calculation. i.e. ctrl-alt-f9 does not cause
full workbook calculation as required.
Meaning cells do not update and it doesn't calculate unless you clic
in the cell to edit and hit enter.
neither does the "Calc Now" button.
Auto or manual calculation mode has no effect.
Anybody else have this problem

I have a rather large application that uses an access 97 database (DAO). We
also have a version that works with access 2000, Oracle, msde, and SQLServer
(ADO). We would like to retire the DAO version of the product, but there are
places where the ADO version is much slower compared to where we run DAO
seeks (very noticeable when looping). So, I have a few questions.
1. Are there any tips/tricks to speed up ADO queries to compare with DAO
2. Would there be any benifit in using access 2003 over previous versions of
the software besides the added features (xml support, etc).

I've got access 2000 on my computer. When I go to open a database someone
sent me I get an error message :
this database is in an unrecognized format. The database may have been
created with a later version of microsoft access.
Is there any way I can open and use this file (short of upgrading to later
version of access)?
If you do not have Access 2002 or 2003, ask the person to save it in Access
2000 format for you.
