  • 1. Pop Up or Shortcut Menu with a Start Group option - Access 2003
    I have a user develop popup toolbar (shortcut menu) and in which I keep losing the Start Group property. In order to customize the popup I have to change it to a Menu Bar or a Toolbar, make my changes and then change it back to a popup. I am guessing I am losing the group start when it converts back to a popup. Is the start group property no available for shortcut menus? Is there a way to do this programatically? Cmon! Who knows the Office command bars inside and out?

Can't display jpg in image control w/ Access 2003 runtime on XP machine w/o Office

I developed an Access 2003 database (front-end/back-ends) and created a 
runtime (packaged). All is well when installing it on most machines, but I'm 
installing it on one machine with Windows XP SP1 which has *never* (user 
emphatic) had any MS Office products installed on it.

Part of the app is bringing up various .jpg files in an image control.

This user receives error:
"... doesn't support the format of the file..."

I have found numerous articles (and the website) mentioning 
this issue with the solution being to download and install 
however, that file's instructions say *not* to install it on an XP system...

Hey all,
            I am having a problem installing Access 2000 runtime on a
machine. The machine has Office XP installed on it but it is the SBE version
which DOES NOT include a version of Access XP. When I try to install the

sits there and will not finish. Does anyone have a idea about what is going
on or have a solution to this problem ?

4.Can't view jpg images after XP reinstall

I've had to reinstall XP (groan) and all my applications incl Access 97, 
Office 2000 and Access 2003. In doing so I believe I have installed all 
the graphics drivers, but my database (97) cannot display jpg images in 
an image control. It can manage bmp OK, but not jpg. Any suggestions?

Also, I used to be able to open a db in the correct version by right 
clicking in Explorer and selecting Open With .. then had the options of 
Acc 97, 2000, 2003. I not longer have these, and if I specify a 
particular file e.g. C:\Prog File\Office 2000\Office\MSAccess.exe, it 
still tries to open with the default - Acc 97. Any ideas on this?
