  • 1. how to change paths
    I have an access database residing on a server. I want to share (mycompany.database) so that all users can input and see the data. When I click on, say contractors, it says that the database couldn't be opened cause it's looking for the folder on the C: drive. I have the folder on the E: drive. How do I change the path to reflect this?
  • 2. Combo Box - Haven't got a clue
    I'm trying to set up a travel database for our Non-US citizens that travel to the US. (We're located in Bermuda) I have imported a table with all the employee information - EmployeeID, FirstName, LastName, title, salary, department, etc... I created a table with all the states and the state abbreviations. I have another table that I want to use a form to input the data. The data needing to be input would be travel start date and travel end date, as well as Employee info - ID, FirstName, LastName and State traveled to. Since the Employee info is in another table I was trying to use a combo box so that the person doing the data entry in the form could just select the Employee and a the field would populate the other items attached to that employee record. Once the form/travelinfo table is populated, I'll use queries to calculate the amount of US Source Income for each trip for each person by month for reporting to the IRS. That is, of course, if I'm doing this correctly. 1.) Is a combo box the right was to achieve the display of information on my form? 2.) Is there a way to have the "display" on the combo box display all three columns - currently in the drop down you see EmployeeID, FirstName, LastName, but once you select the person, only the EmployeeID displays on the form. Any and all suggestions are welcome!

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?

4.Universal view of MODI files

Which PC's can view MODI (Microsoft Office Document Imaging) files (extension 

We have Office 2003 on a WinXP PC.  I wish to publish/distribute 
non-editable views, and might print PDF files (spin wheels eliminating page

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