    MS has not answered my question which I sent to them direct. I cannot find how to sort my own favourite addresses in MS Internet Explorer as I have to trawl through my list of contacts. My list is quite long, which I could trim, but it would take me longer to search for an address if I deleted some addresses that I use infrequently. There must be a better way to sort the list.
  • 4. Error opening database in Access 2003
    When I try to open a database in Access 2003, either an existing one or a blank database, I am getting the error: "Workgroup Administrator couldn't create the workgroup information file. Make sure that you have specified a valid path and file name, that you have adequate permissions to create the file, and that you have enough disk space n the destination drive. (-3100)" I am logged on as an administrator, have tried making a database at the root level to ensure valid path using the default name "db1" and I have about 30GB of free disk space. After clicking ok to that message I recieve a second messagebox: "Microsoft Access couldnt find file '<Asian characters>'. This file is required for startup" <Asian characters> is what appears to be 9 characters. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Mole

How can I view a .tif file using the Microsoft Office Document Imaging 
control? Does anyone have example code?

Several of the threads point to sample source code you can download.

  Dim miDoc As MODI.document
  Dim myViewer As New MODI.MiDocView
  Set miDoc = New MODI.document
  Set myViewer = New MODI.MiDocView
  'open existing document
  miDoc.Create "C:\print\myfile.tif"
  'attach document to viewer
  myViewer.FileName = "C:\print\myfile.tif"

  Set miDoc = Nothing

1.Using MODI to convert multi-page tif to single page tif

I have thousands of multipage tif images in many subdirectories that I need 
to convert into single page tifs.  I have vba code to do this (written in MS 
Access) that loops thru the directory tree and I can access info about the 
tifs using MODI.  What I'm looking to do now is convert/save the existing 
multiple page tif to a series of single page tifs so they can be imported 
into our image repository.  Anyone know how to do this?  For example, if the 
current multiple page tif is six pages is would create six single page tifs 
(e.g. sample1_page1.tif,sample1_page2.tif,...


2.MODI - tif file stays locked after .Close

I'm using a MODI reference in my VB .Net 2003 project, creating an MODI 
document object instance and using the .Create("myfilename.tif") method to 
load the document with a single image from a tiff file. After OCRing the 
text, I call the close method.
Problem is that MODI doesnt appear to release the file lock until the 
application closes, and i need to reuse the file name.

dim myMODI as MODI.Document
myMODI = New MODI.Document
{ does some work looking at the words in the myMODI.Images(0).Layout.Text 
property }
myMODI = nothing
Kill ("c:\testfile.tif") 

The kill statement fails saying that another program has the file open.
How can i get MODI to let go of the file?

Any help is appreciated.

3.MODI v12 can't open a .tif file that v11 can open without difficulty

When attempting to open a .tif file with MODI 12.0.4518.1014 I get the error 
"the selected file is not a valid microsoft office document imaging file". 
Opening this file on any machine with MODI 11.something works fine.  Is 
there a patch/fix/workaround for this?

Or can everybody with a WinXP PC view/print the MODI files?  Or only if they 
have Office 2003?
