So, if you're in the explorer window, you go to "view" and select "choose details", you select the appropriate columns, then click ok, it shows the column headings but no info in the columns? Boot from your XP CD to do a system repair. It won't reinstall Windows if you do a repair, and you won't loose any files or anything like that. It'll just repair the registry and/or system files for example. It couldn't hurt. A word of caution though, make sure you have a recent back up of all of your important files, folders, documents, pictures, and music before trying this.

I would like to automatically rename jpg files with the date and time (YMD HS) they are taken. There are a number of downloads available but free downloads have me reluctant to try any listed.


Two options for this: 1- In Explorer on top of file window, R click (View) - choose details - check - (date picture taken) - move it up on the list - close list. 2- R click on any file - click rename - add info that you wish - close option, also you can do this with all files on any window by R click menu (Edit) - select all. . good luck.

Ifyour hard drive can be detected and shows up as a drive letter in my computerbut you can't access or open your files,then you can recover your data from hard drive with data recovery software easily.This way is theeasiest and the most inexpensive way for hard drive data recovery.If you bring it to BestBuy or a professional,they will cost you $500-1000 or more.
I managed to recover data from crashed hard drive with Tenorshare DataRecovery.If needed,you can download it and scan your hard drive for free topreview whether your data can be recovered.It will show you the filename,type,date and of your files and thumbnails for pictures that it foundon your drive.

If it fails, you will have to bring it to Best Buy or a professional but let'shope not because it will cost you a lot of money ($500-1000 or more) andwhether they can recover data is not guaranteed.

Hi i'm trying to find out is simply accounting and NeatDesk scanners are compatible. What i am looking for is a way to scan a invoice file and import the information into simply accounting with out...


There is no scanner invented yet which can create a file that can be read completely read by accounting software like excel because the file that is created is an image file whose individual data like numbers and alphabets could be read by the most up to date accounting system. The only solution I see is that a data entry operator has to manually enter the data in the computer system.

I'm encountering dll errors when I try to access Internet Explorer, even though I'm connected to the modem. How do I fix this?


Hello

Does Internet Explorer start or does it fail to load and displays the .dll error message?

Typically, .dll error messages are caused by 1. out of date Operating System, 2. viruses / spyware / malware on the computer that have over-written valid .dll files, 3. a failed program install

Since IE came with the OS, options 1 or 2 are more likely the cause of the problem. And, yes, you can still get viruses / spyware / malware while on a modem.

Make sure your antivirus is up to date and scan your hard drive for viruses (if you do not have an antivirus program - get one for free - search for AVG)

Make sure you have a spyware /malware detection program, update it and scan your system for spyware/malware (free from Microsoft - search for Windows Defender, other companies also offer free personal versions)

Very important - do both steps above, reboot and repeat 3 times. The computer holds the settings from the last 3 successful reboots, called Control Sets, in the Registry. Scanning the current Control Set only cleans it. It does not clean the other sets and viruses /spyware / malware can be re-introduced to your system if you perform a "Last Known Good" boot or use System Restore to restore your system to a previous date.

I need to print mailing labels imported from excel to word in columnar order instead of in order by rows across the page.


hi Samajane,

I understand the you excel file has data that is stored column wise. Well you can first convert the column wise data to row wise data and then import it to you word.

To convert the column wise data to row wise data.
1.Select the data in your worksheet.
2.Right Click -> Copy
3.Create a blank worksheet.
4.Goto Edit - > Paste Special
5.Check the Transponse Option
6.Press OK.

Now you have converted your column wise data to row wise data and now u can import it to your word and print mailing labels

I NEED TO START A SPREADSHEET FROM SCRATH I AM A BEGINNER AT COMP


I am assuming that you want your date column to run daily - not updating itself with todays date over previous data....

In which case your column will run a daily date, You can achieve this by typing a date in the format you choose = 01/05/09, 1 May 09, etc hit return. scroll on the bottom corner of the cell you have typed the date in until it changes from a large white cross to a smaller cross and drag this down the column.

For the totals that need to subtotal autmoatically you will need to select a range - so is this total a weekly/ monthly total - How large is your range.

Once you have decided on the above - for example the in Column A the date ranges from 1st May - 31st May for a calendar month, the subtotal will need to include 31 cells - so in the Column B which is the subtotal = SUM(B2:B32)

You can copy and paste the sum into adjoining cells if you are seperating income from expenses etc.

Hope this helps.

Flex Grid


The most common multidimensional array, the two dimensional array table, is best presented to your users in row and column format. The grid control offers a convenient way for you to display table data to your users. The users can navigate the table's values using scrollbars. Therefore, the grid control does not have to be as large as the table, because the grid control automatically displays scrollbars.
To add the flex grid control to your toolbox, select project and components. Add the flex grid control:
lesson97-1.jpg Once it is added, you will see the yellow flex grid control in your toolbox:
lesson97-2.jpg When you place the grid control on your form, you will have to resize it before the control takes on a tabular appearance. As you expand the size of the control, it does not look to much like a table. The problem is that the table's default number of rows and columns are two. To fix this problem, you must configure the rows and columns in the properties window:
lesson97-3.jpg lesson97-4.jpg lesson97-5.jpg The grid control supports fixed rows and columns. These refer to rows and columns in a grid control that do not scroll when the user clicks the scrollbars. The fixed rows and columns provides labels that describe the data. The fixed rows and columns are often called row and column headers.
lesson97-6.jpg When working with the grid control, much code is needed to provide the grid with functionality. Call statements are used to break the code required by the grid control into smaller, more manageable procedures. This is referred to as modular programming (which refers to the practice of placing code with a single purpose in a general subroutine procedure and then calling the code from a second procedure.)
Here is the code for the form load procedure (this example is based on the computer disk example used in the last lesson)


Private Sub Form_Load()
Call SizeCells
Call CenterCells



grdGrid.Row = 0
grdGrid.Col = 1
grdGrid.Text = "Single Sided; Low Density "
grdGrid.Col = 2
grdGrid.Text = "Double Sided; Low Density"
grdGrid.Col = 3
grdGrid.Text = "Singled Sided; High Density"
grdGrid.Col = 4
grdGrid.Text = "Double Sided; High Density"

grdGrid.Row = 1
grdGrid.Col = 0
grdGrid.Text = "3 1/2 inch"
grdGrid.Col = 1
grdGrid.Text = "$2.30"
grdGrid.Col = 2
grdGrid.Text = "$2.75"
grdGrid.Col = 3
grdGrid.Text = "$3.20"
grdGrid.Col = 4
grdGrid.Text = "$3.50"



grdGrid.Row = 2
grdGrid.Col = 0
grdGrid.Text = "5 1/4 inch"
grdGrid.Col = 1
grdGrid.Text = "$1.75"
grdGrid.Col = 2
grdGrid.Text = "$2.10"
grdGrid.Col = 3
grdGrid.Text = "$2.60"
grdGrid.Col = 4
grdGrid.Text = "$2.95"

End Sub
Notice how the form load procedure is used to populate the cells in the grid control. To control cell size and cell alignment, two smaller procedures are created and each procedure is called by the form load procedure.


Private Sub SizeCells()
Dim intColumn As Integer

grdGrid.ColWidth(0) = 1100

For intColumn = 1 To 4
grdGrid.ColWidth(intColumn) = 2200
Next intColumn

End Sub

Private Sub CenterCells()
Dim intColumn As Integer

For intColumn = 1 To 4
grdGrid.ColAlignment(intColumn) = flexAlignCenterCenter
Next intColumn

End Sub

Notice that the size and alignment procedures are only applied to columns 1 through 4. Column 0, which is a fixed column reserved for labels, is not formatted using either of the above two procedures.
Here is the final result:
