User defined type

Q: User defined type

It has been a while since I have dabbled with VB so please be patient. I have been searching how to do this for a couple of days now. I am trying to create my own data type. I have done it before but cannot think how for the life of me. I want to store a number of objects and have, for example, it's height, weight, shape in a type. I don't want to simply use integer values, I can do this easily, but I would like to have, say, "Small", "Medium", "Tall" for the height and "Round", "Square" and "Triangle" for the shape, etc. As I said, I know that you can define a list of items that you want in your own type, but search as I may I cannot find reference to it. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Excell XP:
Where is the file where the user-defined chart types are stored?
And is it possible to make a back up of this file?

I just had all my customiezd chart types deleted for no reason. I wish I had a back up of them...

It can be also useful in case of total reinstalation, sharing with others...

Second problem: when I close and re-open Excell, the user-defined chart type, that was set as default is giving squeezed chart area on the top of the chart window, making it unreadable, after I put a title.
The same operation work if I don't close Excell. Once I close it, the chart type become unusable.

Hey, Guys. I am converting to MP3s a friend's 50 (!!) CDs of the Bible to a USB stick for him.

How can I User Define the name and numbering system in Nero 7 to start at a higher number than 1?
For instance, the first CD is Genesis 1 through 23. You do that by setting the track naming system to Genesis %N to get it to start naming Genesis 1 and automatically go through to Genesis 23. Is there a way to get it to start at Genesis 24 and continue naming correctly to Genesis 39 for the next CD? I know I can just let it start at 1 again, and manually rename them after the conversion, but that is going to be a pain for 50 CDs if there is a better way!

Thanks.

I am taking a beginners computer science course in Java, and I am currently learning about methods. There is one question where I have to calculate the ending balance on a deposit at a given rate of interest, and it says I need a user defined procedure-type method (called compound), and a main method that will call it.

I just want to know how to get the program to move to the user-defined method because when I run it, it does not output the last statement which gives the ending balance. It only outputs the main method. This is what I have:
Code:

import java.io.*;

public class CompoundInt {

public static void main (String[] Args) throws IOException {

BufferedReader myInput = new BufferedReader (new InputStreamReader ( System.in));

String inDeposit, inRate;

System.out.print("Enter your bank balance: ");
inDeposit = myInput.readLine ();

System.out.print("Enter the annual compounded interest rate: ");
inRate = myInput.readLine ();

compound ();
}

static public void compound (double deposit, double rate, double endingBalance){

deposit = Double.parseDouble (inDeposit);
rate = Double.parseDouble (inRate);

endingBalance = deposit + ((rate/100) * deposit);

System.out.println("The ending balance of $" + deposit + " at an annual compounded interest rate of " + rate + "% is $" ... Read more

double deposit = Double.parseDouble(inDeposit);
double rate = Double.parseDouble(inRate);
double endingBalance = compound(deposit,rate);
} catch (IOException ioe) { // mandatory
System.out.println(ioe.getMessage());
} catch (NumberFormatException nfe) { // optional : it's a way to check if the entered
System.out.println(nfe.getMessage()); // -------- values are numbers

Is it possible to use functions that I define in the VB module in spreadsheet cells?
 

A:Excel: Possible to use user defined (VBA) functions in cell formulas?

Hi there,

Absolutely. A great addition with the VB5 library. Although, you could actually do it, very carefully, with the old Excel4Macros as well (but those are finicky and troublesome IMHO). Also, in Excel 2007, even though it defies everything ever said about UDF's, you can sometimes change a set of cells formatting via UDF as well! I wouldn't recommend it though, as I don't think it was intended to be able to do so, not really sure there. There are some things you should do to a UDF to make it 'spreadsheet cells friendly' though. Such as naming your variables, think of using Application.Caller method, not using Activesheet or Activeworkbook and such. Compare those to using the INDIRECT() function without leaving a reference (second syntax) on multiple sheets/books. If you have a UDF, feel free to post it up. If you don't have one and would like one, please post your requirements along with some sample data and the expected results.

Hi there,
I apologise if this has been covered before. I am planning on importing a large number of contacts from excel to outlook (both 2003).
Because there are so many contacts I want to be able to categorize them beyond the default categories provided in outlook (company, job title etc) so that I can then sort them alphabetically, ctrl+shift those of the desired category and send out emails. E.g. say I want to add the category favourite pizza, and then I may want to sort the contacts to email everyone whose favourite pizza is (say) vegeterian.
I have found two ways to add additional categories:
1) via the user-defined fields (text based)
2) Add an additional category to the master list (yes or no)
drawbacks:
1) I have not found a way to map these details to those in outlook, i.e. when trying to map I can't find the user-defined categories list anywhere (?)
2) this DOES map but you "can't sort by categories" when looking at a phone-list view of contacts. It is also possibly prone to error as all the information is not under the same heading (e.g. favourite pizza vs listing a number of different pizzas)
I don't think I explained that very well... but if it makes sense to anyone please help!
Thanks very much

Well you could use a separate search form, but what would be really usefull is to add 2 "Find Combo's" to your current data entry form, they will list all the names and accounts for the user to choose from and go straight to the record.
They are a very efficient way of finding data.

My system is Win7-SP1 with 2 SSD's and 2 HDD's. What I want to do is keep the pagefile.sys file off my SSD boot drive and put it on the other SSD. But the standard method to do this does not work - when I use the Virtual Memory dialog to set up a page file on my non-boot SSD the dialog says it is created ok, but in fact no file is created.

There is no error message generated, but if I try to put the pagefile.sys on my non-boot SSD Windows creates a new one on the boot drive immediately after restarting. This is because there never was a pagefile.sys created on the non-boot SSD.

Right now I have the page file on one of my HDD's and it works fine there (at least it seems to - how can anyone really tell?) and I have no page file on my boot SSD. But I'd rather have the pagefile.sys on my second SSD instead.

The following techniques do NOT WORK:

1. Copying pagefile.sys from it's current location to the SSD. Windows won't copy it because it says it is in use.

2. Booting off the Win7 DVD and using the System Repair Command window to copy pagefile.sys. This fails because the command window does not see or list pagefile.sys.

3. Restore from backup to alternate location. This fails because my backup program (Paragon 12) does not back up the pagefile.sys file or the Recycle Bin and a few other "system" files like that.

I'm hoping there is some obscure DOS command (or something) that supports the creation of a pagefile.sys from the command prompt. ... Read more

A:How to create user-defined pagefile.sys when the normal method fails

pagefile.sys can't be copied, as there's a persistent handle opened to the file during boot and is only destroyed on shutdown - given it only holds memory pages for the duration of the running OS session, copying it doesn't seem to make much sense anyway.

The way you "move" the paging file using the sysdm.cpl dialog is to first set the system to "no paging file", rebooting, and then setting a paging file on a different volume (and rebooting again). Assuming you do these steps, it should create a pagefile.sys on the specified volume and get rid of the one on the other. To be sure though, make sure you are using the dir /A command to view the root of the drive that should contain a paging file (pagefile.sys).

Dear Microsoft: Please don't take away my Live Mesh | Microsoft - CNET News






Quote:
The beauty of Live Mesh, though, is that you can sync any folder anywhere on your hard drive without having to move or copy it to a specific location. You simply tell Live Mesh which folders to keep in sync on each PC, and it does the rest.
The new SkyDrive will sync your files. But unlike Live Mesh, it won't sync specific folders from anywhere on your PC.
Instead, it creates a folder on your PC called SkyDrive. Any subfolder or file you wish to sync has to be moved to that specific location. So what was once an automated process now becomes a manual and laborious task. It also can easily create problems for applications that want to store content in your Documents folder, for example.


I just switched to Skydrive for this! It was a royal pain figuring out how to junction my documents folder on my second drive into my Dropbox folder. Is there any way to avoid upgrading?

On computer1, I have successfully created a customized form with user-define fields in Outlook 2007 and a merge document in Word 2007 that works (starting the merge from Outlook 2007). I want to copy the custom form with the user-define fields and the merge document to a second computer (computer2).

I saved the custom form with fields from computer1 to a *.fdm file using the Tools, Options, Other, Advanced Options, Custom Forms, Manage forms. On computer2 I used the same process to install the custom form file (*.fdm) into Outlook 2007 and created a new contact folder that uses the form and displays/adds new contact records correctly. I also copied the Word merge document to computer2. Computer1 and computer2 both have Office 2007.

All the problems occur on computer2. First, when I attempted to merge (starting in Outlook 2007), Word gave messages that all my user-defined fields did NOT exist in the database although I could see them in the Contact records. I attempted to create a new document and the user-define fields do NOT show up in the Word merge field list either.

On computer2, I created from scratch a new contacts folder with a new custom form and user-define fields which works when merging. Therefore, the problem seems to be that Word can not see the fields I created from the *.fdm file I installed.

Can anyone please help me with this? Thank you in advance.

If I open the User Profiles Pane in Control Panel -> System -> Advanced System Settings the size of the user account is unknown (see Profiles.png).

If I switch back the user Axel to Administrators everything works and I can see the right size in the User Profiles Pane.

Does anyone have a clue on this?
I've tried also Vista and 8 and they all seems affected.

Thanks

Elevate Axel to Admin account, hide the Built In Admin account: Built-in Administrator Account - Enable or Disable - Windows 7 Forums

This is the best way to set it up, the reason a new install is issued Admin account. In five years since Win7 beta I've never seen a reason why not, except for one or two of the most incompetent users imaginable. But who is going to be their Admin for them? Having a separate account just makes your right hand ask your left hand if it can act.

How can I make a separate copy of the Window submenu item in a custom menu bar that will allow the user to switch from window to window (but nothing else)?

In my app I want to restrict the things that a user can do so I created my own, pared-down versions of the standard menu bar and tool bar and turn off the standard ones upon startup. I want to add the "Window" submenu to my custom toolbar. In this custom version of the window submenu, I don't want to be able to tile, arrange, or hide/unhide, I simply want a list of visable windows and to be able to choose one of them to be the active window.

I know how to put a new submenu item in a custom menu and how to insert menu items into it but I don't know how to add this un-named capability to my custom "Window" submenu.

I tried copying the existing Window submenu from the standard menu bar onto my own custom menu bar by ctrl-dragging it, but rather than creating a new instance of the windows submenu, it apparently only created a new pointer or shortcut to the existing window submenu item because when I went to delete the tile/cascade/hide/etc items from the custom window submenu, they also disappeared from the window submenu in the standard menu bar.

I am continually getting the error "Run Time error 1004: Application defined or object defined error," each time a user clicks one of the cells within this excel file. It comes up as apparently a visual basic error. I've search other sites and unfortunately do not know enough about macros or excel formulas to know what to do next, so I thought I would post about it here. One user apparently has no trouble opening it while every other user has the same issue. Here is the debug code:

Private Sub Worksheet_Deactivate()

End Sub

Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Excel.Range)
Cells.Interior.ColorIndex = -4142
Target.EntireRow.Interior.ColorIndex = 8
Target.EntireColumn.Interior.ColorIndex = 8
End Sub

The "Cells.Interior.ColorIndex = -4142" portion is highlighted in yellow, so I assume that's where the error is. From there, I'm not sure what to do to change it. Please let me know as soon as possible what direction I should take.

Thanks

A:run time error 1004 application defined or object defined error

To be honest...I would assume that the file is corrupt and try to replace it. All seemingly meaningful links on this error involve VBA coding and things that can go wrong with it...way overhead my head and out of my interest arena .

If it truly is a coding error (as seems implied), I would take it to the originator of that file, since it throws an error.

Very strange that e pluribus unum...manages to use it without problems .

hi people,

what i want to accomplish is to set an user account type automatically after creating one. as you may know, when you create an user account the system ask you what account type to apply for that new user. the default choice are: Administrator and Limited. i want to create an account that is not too limited but neighter with same privilege as an administrator. i went to the Local Users and Groups at the Microsoft Management Console (now on MMC) and assigned a different Group to each users i desired. task accomplished. but...

the problem is that i don't know how many user the computer will have. the owner of the computer are primitive human that don't know how to configure the system. i neighter want any of them to have administrative right because they have internet access and they still on the experiment process. meaning that they're propense to click 'YES' to any message even if those are viruses (most of them don't read english). the solution i thought was to assign only one user the administrative right so they can install and uninstall software and perform other administrative task as creating more user accounts. there is anyway that after creating an user account the system automatically assign the user a specific Groups? for example the built-in object Power User. or among the choice on user account tool add an new item or modify the existing items. or if there is anyway to modify the privilege and right for an built-in object...

My keyboard types fine in some programs and browsers but not others. I tried different keyboards with same results. I cannot type anything in the Opera Browser & Microsoft Word now refuses typing. In Opera sometimes typing is accepted but then in a flash form (Crossword on USA Today site) the keyboard letters record as numbers counting the keystrokes. I tried the on-screen keyboard with same results.

Also on occasion, software will not open and shows an error message 'Another User is using this software'. But I am the only user. After 'sleep', my Logitech Camera does not reactivate and says another program is using the device. Could these issues be related to the keyboard problem?

I suspect a setting is wrongly set in the operating system. But don't know what. Anyone else have these problems and what is the remedy?

Been fighting this issue for 5 weeks.
Using Windows 7 Professional 64 bit on AMD processor with 16GB memory.

A:Cannot type & some programs say 'another user'

Fixed this problem. It was a security software called GuardedID. It intercepted my keystrokes and changed the signal. I disabled the software and all is now working. Hope this can help others.

my requirements:

1. standard user can install programs, which is saved for future uses (i have seen pcs where the programs are deleted/uninstalled as soon as the user log out)

2. standard user CANNOT re-install windows by inserting a windows disc at boot up!!

Is this already present under default standard user or..do i have to add some settings?

Installing a program isn't actually a special thing, it is just copying files to a certain location and setting some things up. As long as an application is not depending on administrative power it can be ran or installed anywhere. So yes a standard user can install applications...if they support installing without admin power. Look at Google Chrome, it requires no administrative power to install or run.

Impossible. Windows is not running when a computer boots up, thus no user accounts.
