  • 3. Combo lookup box returning error
    I have a combo lookup box that returns an error whenever I try to search for a customer with an " ' " in the name, in other word, "ABC's" will return an error, however "ABCs" will not. The error message is "syntax error (missing operator) in expression. Error 3077. Is there any way around this or do I need to change all the customers with an " ' " in it to not have an " ' "? Thanks in advance.
  • 4. opening multiple reports at once
    Is there an easy way to open multiple reports at once that use the same query? i have 3 reports that all use the same query. Instead of entering criteria 3 times in a row it would be nice to enter it once and have all 3 reports come up. Is this possible? And if so how?

  Dim miDoc As MODI.document
  Dim myViewer As New MODI.MiDocView
  Set miDoc = New MODI.document
  Set myViewer = New MODI.MiDocView

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 
truncate in free/$20 PDF995 or spend $300 on Adobe Acrobat 7.0 Standard).

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