Microsoft Access 2007 and Word 2007

I recently bashed Microsoft Access 2007, but the product does have 2 nice new features...

  1. You can now scroll within the VBA code window.
  2. The mousewheel no longer scrolls through records on your forms.

You can run the exact same database in Access 2003 and then in Access 2007 and notice these 2 scrolling changes immediately.  These would have been very very useful even back on Access 2000 for crying out loud, but oh well.

Word 2007 is really cool actually...

  1. Web page editing is nice and intuitive.
  2. Inserting drawings and pictures is seriously amazing.
  3. You can change your inserted pictures quickly and add fun shadows etc., which I of course like.
  4. Working with tables is SO MUCH EASIER!

I am loving the Word 2007...word!

This file can be found at "C:\Documents and Settings\Kyle Archer\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\". I found out that PST stands for 'Personal Store' according to Microsoft. Anyway, this monster file contains all your emails, events, contacts, notes, etc. It can get quite large and mine was appraoching a Gig. Even when you clean out your junk mail, delete stuff then remove your 'Deleted Items', it doesn't do m

Simulating A Right-Click From The Keyboard

I have been doing quite a bit of LogMeIn (IT Reach and Rescue) lately and sometimes my mouse right-click does not work to get context menus.  Therefore, if you ever have this issue, just select the icon or item you need and press [Shift] [F10].  I am sure Tim could have told me this, but he wasn't here :)
