Can mailing list in Works 4.5 be moved into Access

MS Office Access


  • 1. Program crash
    Hi! The following message appears when I attempt to put new data into my database. "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 program simply crashes every time without fail. I attempted to repair the database, re-install the MS Office, upgrade it, check for viruses and errors but it did not fix the program. It is not a bug in this computer b/c same happens on other computers in my office. But if I use the program at home or in any other location (besides my office) it works like charm. Computer people in my company are clueless. Any smart people out there who want to wrestle this one? Thanks! V
  • 2. How to Open a Database
    Tools + StartUp Select the switchboard form in the Show Form drop-down box. Remove the check from the 'Display Database Window' box. This will take effect the next time you open the database. If you ever need to open and display the database window, hold the shift key down while you open the database, or press F11 if it's already open. Please reply only to this newsgroup. I do not reply to personal e-mail.

  • 3. Example of handshaking in access
    I have just run into a problem with Access freezes up because I am running a batch file that interfaces with a program to produce a text that is linked to within access. The order of operation is to delete the link table, produce the text file, and then relink. The reason I delete the linked table is I figured it is easier then deleting all the data and updating that way. The reason I am deleting the table every time is just in case the data that access links to is deleted or moved. I know I could be more sophisticated on my approach, but this way is bulletproof as I see it. Anyways back to the problem, I need to know if there is a away in Access to do some handshaking with other programs as to know when a process stops and can move onto the next process.
  • 4. Access 2000 to 2002
    I had a PC with Office 2000 Premium, but got a new one that came with Office XP Standard. All I need from my old copy of Office Premium is Access, but I cannot add the Access software because the computer sees the newer version of Office. I bought an upgrade version of Access, but it will not install because now MS requires that the computer have an copy of Office 2000 or 98 Premium or a stand alone version of Access. Have I wasted my money on the upgrade version of Access which cannot be returned or is there a way to get around this?

Can mailing list in Works 4.5 be moved into Access

I have 2 mailing lists totalling together nearly 400 names, in a Works 4.5 
for Windows 95 data base.  I could add about 1300 more from an Excel list 
offered to me, but I do not have Excel in my computer.  I read, I think on 
the MS website, that Access is the best program for mailing lists.  I am 
willing to buy Access.  Could the Works 4.5 list be transferred into Access?  
Could the Excel list be read in Access and merged with the list from Works 
4.5?  Would it take great expertise to do this, or could an average computer 
user do it?

I now use Windows XP in my computer.

You can't directly import from Works 4.5 into Access, but you can export
from Works in an appropriate format and then import into Access.  See, for


Excel files can be imported into Access without having Excel installed.

"Expertise" is an entirely relative term!  Many people would regard this
task as trivial, but you may not find it so.  But, I'm sure someone here
would help you if you couldn't figure it out.

1.template: song lists for cd sleeves 4.5 by 4.5" (not cd cases)

  Unfortunately I am going to make this sound more difficult than I should 
and I apologize for that fact up-front. I got stuck trying to create a 
template in Excel.
  I burn many cd's with identical song lists, place them in cd sleeves (not 
the larger cases), and mail them. Paper size that fits a sleeve is approx. 
4.2" width by 4.5" length --- the four identical lists can fit onto one piece 
of regular letter paper with custom margins: currently I have it set up to 
print with no header or footer; "0.25" for top and bottom; "0.12" for right 
and left. Nothing fancy for borders, pictures, designs, etc. 
  Note: most of these CD's do not have many songs (avg. is 6 songs per cd):
Ideally I would like a template that:
I can type the title of CD on top [should this be a header?].
Below it would be the list of songs:
Track number (possibly automatically populate?)
Name of song 
[Possibly a third column for length of song but not necessary]
I would like a to fit each song on one line instead of it going onto a 
second one but sometimes that is not practical 
Bottom of list: space for notes if necessary; one or two lines [footer?]
Could a template automatically change the size of the font depending upon 
how much space is used?

-- I've tried to write the description multiple times but above is the best 
I can do and I apologize for that fact (especially since all I am trying to 
get is four boxes -- almost squares -- on one sheet of paper!)  Any help with 
this will be greatly appreciated, especially by the recipients of the cd's, 
since my handwriting is as bad as my communication skills. === Be well, -

5.MS Works 4.5 Printing Problem

I have installed a new HP Deskjet 5150 USB printer on a
Windows 98SE machine. I can print from everything except
MS Works 4.5. I get an error that says no default printer
selected. If I set a different printer as default and
then re-select the 5150, I can print from Works until I
restart the machine. Any suggestions
