I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Works 2000 database

I have that version, there's doesn't seem to be that option. As an alternative, try selecting the records and applying left -- right -- top -- bottom borders (via Format -- Border).

EDIT: my mistake ; File -- Page Setup -- Other Options.

By "custom form", do you mean an input form, like Access? Don't know, will look it up.

How can I export records in database to print mailing labels? or get the database to print them?

A:Works database

don't have works anymore (like a looong time ago) but since it's an Office-Lite product hopefully there's some similarities

maybe try the help feature for:
mail merge

in the database and word processing software (it's likely the same help file, so it may not matter)

here's the detailed FAQ page and
here's one about works 3 and creating labels

sounds fairly similar to the office procedures

good luck

Can anyone tell me how to set the print area in "Database"? I want to print a form which shows lots of names down the first column, and then has a blank "Signature " column next to it, but with horizontal gridlines to take their signatures.

When I look on "Print Preview" it only shows the "Names" column, and I can't get it to print a column next to it. If I remember corectly, there is a facility in Excel for this, but I can't find it in the Database application.

Any help would be appreciated.

I am working on a database for our Ambulance Company. One of the fields I am having trouble with is writing a formula to calculate response times when time enters another day.

Example, we use military time therefrore, 23:59:00 would be 11:59 pm. If we run the call till 00:10:00 ( 12:10 AM) the formula I have written ( = Arrival Time - Responding Time) gives me an invalid time because it doesn't recoginize I have gone past the current day into the next day.

Please help me figure out how to formulate this field.

Thank You.

We need to create a database, preferably a works database, because that's the program both of us have.

At the end of the year, we need to be able to go back in and total all occurrences of a particular statistic and combinations of certain statistics together.

A:Will a works database work?

Works will only "work" if it has an actual database like Access to enter your data into. You can set up one database and enter the data there directly. If you are on a network you can share the database and have forms set up for data entry. If you are in different locations you could use some kind of program like PCAnywhere and the remote person could dial in and do data entry on the database. There are way too many options so you might want to give us soem kind of idea on what your setup is and how to accomplish it.

Been using Works for years and have never had this happen before. If I make a change in the database and try to SAVE, the program just closes, no error message. I re-open and the changes obviously have reverted to original state. I have run AdAWare, Spybot, AVG is up to date and runs nightly and am clean. I reinstalled MSWorks (just over the old program) and thought it was fixed, but now it is doing it again. Very frustrating Yes, I do get the message about more than 500 fonts, but since I have XP, I have been told that this is not critical anymore. Any ideas or suggestions? ... Millie in KY

I am working with the Microsoft Works Database program that comes with Windows XP. I am listing a number of books, their isbn's and their prices. I evidently punched a wrong button because now every time I enter a new book the price from the previous entry is automatically entered for the new book. For example, if the price for the previous book was 19.99 that is automatically entered as the price for the next book.

It's not a big problem, because I can override it by simply entering the correct price, but still it's annoying. Anyone know how I can undo this default price setting?

For anyone whose interested/had the same problem it seems that there is no such thing as a "viewer" the best option though I've yet to try it is to save the file as a .csv and open it with open office. If you just want to view the data and copy and paste what you want it can also be saved as a text file - this is all assuming you or someone has access to Ms Works, as a last resort you can open the .wdb file with notepad or wordpad though its a lot more messy to access what you want. - hope this helps.

I have completed my database. I put one column in alphabetical order, and proceed to another, the column I just alphabetized goes back the way it was. They won't all stay alphabetical. What's the deal? Help?

A:works suite 2003 database

This happens in Excel too, putting a column in alphabetical order is assumed to mean that you want all the rows to still contain the original values.

In Excel, you can highlight the data in the column and this sorts only that column - Then move on to the next column, etc.

If that doesn't work in Works, you may want to
sort the first column,
cut and paste the remaining columns into separate worksheets (one column, one worksheet) and
then sort them,
then copy them all back...

Database is a far better solution and it wouldn't be that hard. One table for the caller and any info pertaining to them. One table with the agencies, and one for services. Then one last table to track the activity for each client. The one thing you need to try to avoid is duplicating client records by setting up a search page where you can verify the client being in the db or whether they are a new client.

I work in a non-profit that does not want to upgrade the ACT software. We are running 3 computers on XPPro as a peer network. We had to replace two of the computers recently when the old machines just died.

We had licensed copies of ACT! 2000 on all machines with a shared database on one of the rigs. We had three different operating systems on the old setup: W2K, Win98, XPPro. Now we have XPPro on all. Unfortunately when I reinstalled ACT on the two new rigs they won't recognize the database on the shared folder. The message is that the selected database is not an ACT database, even though it has the ACT icon in front of the name of the db.

I tried assigning a drive letter to the shared folder but to no avail. Now I am out of ideas. Any suggestions?

I have a 3 PCs peer-to-peer network sharing to use a Access DB file which resides in say PC-A. Most of the time PC-B and PC-C would open file to do data entry.

PC-B never has any problem.
PC-C the person has been complaining records missing... say she puts in new records 2 days ago, now when she opens the file she cannot find those records. This case does not happen all the time, just hit & miss!
All PCs are WIN98 running Office 2000.

1. Do I need to apply any fixes (SR1?)
2. Is there any sharing issue that I missed?

Currently all I am doing is making PC-A with a shared folder to house the Access data file.

Can someone tell me the most efficient and secure way to backup a secured database?

I have a secured database (usergroups, names, etc.) and I want to be able to back-up the db's info in the event that the database crashes. Currently, I'm exporting the necessary tables to an outside database (which is in a different directory). However, I don't think this is the best way to go about backing-up the db because the db that the information is going to IS NOT secured. As a result, someone can obtain the db's info from there.

A:Access 2000 - Database Locked when opened by a specific computer.

See if there is a left-over <name>.ldb file in the same directory as the <name>.mdb file. the LDB file (Lock Data Base) is where Access keeps track of who has the file open, which record is being accessed, etc. The LDB file is supposed to get deleted with the database is closed, but if there is a crash or something weird then LDB file can get left behind.

If you find an LDB file just delete it and try again.

However, upon re-installing the following message very quickly appears. " Install was interupted! You may not have sufficient memory or Hard Disk space for the install process to work succesfully or may have an antivirus application running." There is 18gig of drive space available and ample memory.

I'm wondering if there is still components of the first installation resident which are some how halting the re-installation.

I would appreciate guidance on this.

A:Microsoft Works 2000

I notice you did not comment on the third possibility listed. Did you forget to turn off your virus checker before the installation? A good idea with troublesome installations is to close out everything except Explorer and Systray by using Ctrl+Alt & Delete. That process not only frees up memory but turns off any program that might interfere with the installation.
