  • 2. Access97 & Windows 2000 Error
    Now that I've upgraded to Windows 2000 Professional but still use Office 97, my Access databases work irratically. I frequently get an error message that says "msaccess.exe has generated errors and will be closed by windows. You will need to restart the program. An error log is being created." The programs work fine under windows 98. Does anyone know how to view this error log or if my problem is stemming from some setup issue? Help!!!!
  • 3. Access 2003 datasheet view scrollbar missing bug?
    here's another one that I believe is also a bug in Access 2003 Have you every opened a table in datasheet mode, or run a query and view the results, and then the vertical scrollbars disappear? This is a strange one that has happened a few times (inconsistent, not sure the exact steps are to repeat). But, when I scroll down into the rows, all of a sudden, the vertical scroll bar disappears and is no longer functional. The up arrow and down arrow are there, but the middle scroll box is gone. The width of the scrollbar still exists, but you can not scroll up or down using the scroll box (even clicking in the location of the scroll bar to move up/down does not work.) I still playing with it to try to make it repeat, but it has happened several times when I was switching between excel & access windows.
  • 4. how can i add the alpha or beta symbols used in scientific data to fields ?
    I cut out some data (strings) from a word document and placed them into my memo field in the form, but noticed the alpha symbol changed to a square box. There are several greek alphabet symbols used in science to describe variables, and objects. So how can I get access 2002 in xp pro to paste the symbols, do i have to add something to it somehow like a language extension? how do I do this, please help.
  • 5. Using Documenter how to print description column?
    You can't. that is just one of many ways the documenter sucks. They have actually taken functionality out of it from early versions of Access.

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?
