    Online Faxing service - COLOR fax?

    I guess you mean that you can use a Shell command to send faxes with the services? I hope you're right. Of course APIs almost never have documentation for VBA so you have to wing it, IF it's possible. I have seen some that will take a cURL command, which I BELIEVE is built into Windows so you...

    Online Faxing service - COLOR fax?

    Got it. Thanks for clarifying! :) The reason I thought I'd ask is because sometime "soon" I will be looking into faxing from Access and I thought that if you (or anyone else) knew of a good service and used it successfully then someone could help me with a head start. I figured it couldn't hurt...

    Online Faxing service - COLOR fax?

    Just to clarify: did you use faxing services with Access or in some other way? I know that Access hasn't been mentioned in the thread but in the context of the forum, I thought you might have meant using Access.

    Microsoft to block Office VBA macros by default

    Like many things in life, that's only minor IF you know how to solve it. The article doesn't state how clearly that information will be conveyed to the person trying to activate the spreadsheet/Word doc/Access app.

    Microsoft to block Office VBA macros by default

    From what I gather in the article: - I am not sure how Windows can determine the source of an application but I do remember this kind of thing way back in the Win XP era where you had to click unblock on the file properties. - You might be thinking of setting a Trusted Location? This requires...

    Microsoft to block Office VBA macros by default

    I don't know if people have seen this but it might affect a number of Access users, so in case it helps to be aware: Microsoft to block Office VBA macros by default It seems to only affect if the application came from the internet, but people do use the web to distribute apps.

    Slow Access via LAN and windows 10

    All of these methods of good practice when designing and deploying an Access app are important and should be followed. But it raises the question: WHY did it work well over Win 7 and is suddenly slow on Win 10? I've heard of this happening with some of my own users, to be honest. (Note: MOST of...

    Bringing Microsoft Access into the Future: Introducing the Microsoft Access Connector for the Microsoft Power Platform

    On the one hand, it's good that Microsoft is responding (somewhat. sort of. on a limited basis) to the fact that there should have been web functionality ages ago to keep Access relevant. On the other hand, I wonder if there will people who got burnt by Web databases (2010) and Web Apps (2013)...

    Solved Your network access was interrupted - due to inactivity?

    A few comments: - I always use .mdb and I've had a few clients complain that they receive "your network access was interrrupted", even while working on the system. I always use a persistent connection in split databases. So, I don't think that it makes a difference which file format you are...

    dbEngine(0)(0) vs Currentdb

    Percentage-wise it's a significant difference. Perhaps per iteration it's small but when your scope is big enough it will add up. I did say that it's non-scientific :)

    Installing Outlook 2003 to avoid security prompts/allow automation

    A couple of things: 1) Outlook 2003 does have the warning. It was introduced in Outlook 2000 so you'd have to use a version earlier than that. 2) Outlook 2007 and above has the ability to set the access security. Look at this...
