The real file has many more records of course.

How many records (rows)?

Is this a one-time task?

You only have to do it once to activate the product after that it works fine.

Got it, thanks.

Thanks for straightening me out re Windows Live Mail.  It would definitely serve my purpose.

I may get an email address in a system using Office365, which uses Exchange.

Does the info below, from an article somewhere, make this an easy decision, just move to Live Mail so I can more easily manage this email address?

The main competition to Thunderbird are Microsoft's two email clients, Windows Live Mail and Microsoft Outlook. If you use Exchange, you'll probably need one of these. Windows Live Mail is actually a pretty good client, and has a lot of the same features as Thunderbird, like conversation views, as well as some nice Windows integration. It doesn't have the awesome add-on support that Thunderbird does, however...

I could live with Office 2003, I know all my stuff works and there's no ribbon.  I should be able to get a legal copy cheap enough when the time comes.

I'm 99% sure I'll be able to copy my normal.dot and personal.xls from 2002 to 2003.

...at the start screen type WINWORD and then right click and run as administrator on the icon.

I'm hoping this sort of thing can be automated.

Thanks for the clarification re Windows Live Mail.  The question now is whether or not I'd like it better than Thunderbird.  Otherwise I don't want to create any kind of Microsoft account if I don't have to (don't twitter, use facebook, gmail, etc either because I don't have to.)

I like and use Firefox, so I figure I'd probably be ok with Thunderbird.  Are there things about Windows Live Mail that are better?
9  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: XP to Windows 7 advice on: March 03, 2014, 11:05:06 AM
Wow, I knew this was the right place to ask, thanks everyone!!

Re LibreOffice, App103 expressed my concern, that all the VBA code I've written won't work, or won't work well.  Plus the groups I work with are all standardized on Office.

Sooner or later if I keep working, I'll have to upgrade Excel and Word, but I'm not in a hurry and might have access to a later version of Office in the not too distant future so I'll be able to see for myself.

Windows Live Mail is web-based, no?  I really like having all my email on my machine.  Plus I don't want to get any further tied into the Microsoftverse than I already am.  So I'll probably still check out Thunderbird.

Thanks!

I guess the smart thing to do would be to install Thunderbird under XP, migrate everything from Outlook Express and get that behind me.

I'm thinking of upgrading my 6 year old Vostro 1700 XP pro laptop to Windows 7.

I need to replace Outlook Express (which I like), and I don't want to use web-based email like GMail.  Last time I thought about upgrading, I figured I'd use Mozilla Thunderbird.  I have Outlook 2002 but really dislike it.

I'm still using Word 2002 and Excel 2002.  I can't afford to upgrade these any time soon, and that will be a project I'm not looking forward to, seeing if all my VB code and any of my interface customization will still work.

So, my two questions if I upgrade from XP Pro to Windows 7:

1.  Will Mozilla Thunderbird easily replace Outlook Express?

2.  Will I be able to re-install and run Word and Excel 2002 easily?

HOw do you know where or if write something in the windows registry ?

Don't know where I got it, but I have a program in my Utility folder called RegShot.exe.  You run it, select "1st shot", do your install or whatever, and then click "2nd shot".  The program shows you what registry entries have changed.

from a command line you can issue the Find command and redirect the results to a text file

if you want to use wildcards I think you have to use the Find command inside a For statement

look up Find, For, and redirecting output in a Command Line reference

TV -

Mostly Netflix streaming/dvd/blu-ray.  

I get good hi-def NBC and PBS broadcast signals, use them for local/national news.  Plus a few political podcasts via Roku or AppleTV.

It's harder than he makes it look, practice would probably make a difference.  Strength is also a factor.

It took me a while but I had to see for myself.

This is Woody Leonhard's Patch site.  It's been interesting since he joined forces with Susan Bradley and others, since sometimes they don't have the same take on potential patch problems.

I like to let others be the first patchers, read about their experiences, and then patch a few weeks later if it's safe.  And I always do a full backup before patching.

Sure, you see it all the time.  And with a little motivation it doesn't always take a lot of "over and over".

or you could try a mouse gesture add-on.  I use All-In-One Gestures for Firefox.

I use the right button and a few simple gestures to move between tabs, go to top of page, zoom.

pretty much any Western or other flick with Clint Eastwood in it was going to be worth watching.
agreed, seems like the guy can't make a bad movie
