    Re: Counting checked boxes (2000)

    Thanks for your quick response. I'm sure your suggestions would work . . . if I only knew how to apply them. I assume that I must replace "Table1" with the actual name of the table, and a and b with...

    My Access 2000 database contains several checkboxes (call them A, B, C, and D) in each record. I need to create a query to show the number of checked As, Bs, Cs, and Ds. I've tried to use the...

    Re: Backup failure

    Sorry it took so long to reply - have been out of town. Repositioning data files is more trouble than I want to get into. Also, a few programs store changed data in files with non-standard extensions...

    Re: Backup failure

    Yes, I can break the backup into smaller segments, and that's how I've been getting by. Problem is that I must then TEND the backup and start each segment manually when the previous one finishes,...

    Re: Backup failure

    It's 30GB, divided into two partitions of about equal size -- more than plenty of room. I can create or copy files to the drive, but I start the backup to a clean, empty drive. <img src=/S/shrug.gif...

    Backup failure

    Am trying to back up an entire fixed hard drive to a removeable hard drive using MSBACKUP in WinME. Full backup would be a little over 8GB. After processing 11,310 files (4,648,972,592 bytes), the...

    Re: Programs won't close

    /w3timages/icons/smile.gif That did it. It looked to be a lengthy process, so I didn't get around to working on it until this weekend, but you were right on target. I had several things loading...

    Re: Suspicious program

    Thanx -- that relieves my paranoia. Since Snoopy is doing no harm and might actually be needed, I'll just leave it alone.

    Suspicious program

    Win.ini loads a program called ptsnoop.exe at startup. I don't know what it is, and using CTL-ALT-DEL End Task on it doesn't seem to affect anything else -- but the name bothers me.

    Ptsnoop is in...

    Closed programs won't quit

    I normally open Word or Access2000 by double-clicking on a .doc or .mdb file. Since "upgrading" from Win98SE to WinMe, that only works once. If I close the application and double-click another file...

    Re: Programs won't close

    A .tmp file from Word or Access would be in the folder where their documents are stored, and the filenames usually contain recognizable parts of the name of the document in use. That's not being left...

    Re: Programs won't close

    Well, I spoke too soon. Apparently, more .tmp files are created every time I launch Access or Word by doubleclicking a file and these applications still linger in Task Manager after closing. This...

    Re: Programs won't close

    Thanx, Phil. That seems to have done it. BTW there were about 50 .tmp files, most being zero-length. I was able to get rid of all but 5, those 5 disallowing access because they "might be in use." 4...
