Do you know what this is-Mortician's Memo?

Q: Do you know what this is-Mortician's Memo?

I started my computer up the other day and received the following message:

"Mortician's Memo (in the blue title bar on the box)
It looks like somehow the DSP is Dead! Please go to the Device Manager and Disable/Enable the Audio Device."

Then the screen remained blank when I closed that box. The desktop didn't load up and I had to hit the power switch on the outlet strip. Ever since I've been getting oodles of pop-ups and I've ran AVG and found three or four viruses. I've ran Ad-aware and Spybot, as well as Spyware. It keeps freezing up on me.
Anyone know what that message above is about?

Need some help. Evertime I now open my IE I get an error message that states the IE is opening with Add-ons disabled. I have gone in to the Internet Options and enabled all of the add-ons, yet still get the message after closing Internet Options and restarting the computer.

Good day all,

I'm having some issues getting a combobox to work with a memo field.

Master repository (table) = my data warehouse
Main (form) = drives data to Master Repository
Verbiage (table) = document types list in combobox on form Main. One of the 3 fields retrieved by the combobox, [Body], is a Memo field containing formatted wording to be used to generate a printed letter.

The combobox will return the correct field/data upon selection but it truncates the information in that field. I read that there might be some sorting and like field issues but I haven't been able to fix or work around the issue yet. Suggestions are greatly appreciated

Perhaps there might be other ways to achieve what it is that I would like to do. What I am trying to do is create the ability to generate a formatted letter hub of sorts. These are one-off letters that are produced at the time of data entry that will use information from the current record and from several tables.


A:Memo field

How many Characters are you trying to display in the Combo from the memo field?
There is a 255 character limit for the columns of Combjo box fields.
You can however display those characters but then use the whole of the table field's data by using VBA code to retrieve the data either using dlookup or a recordset.
Or if the user needs to see all the data you can use an unbound memo field to display the same data in full.

Retaining formatting in memo fields (reports)

I am being passed an MDB file from a back end system that uses SQL server to store information. The conversion of SQL-server to MDB seems to work well except when I encounter a memo or text field containing what I believe to be CR/LF characters.

Many of the fields in the database are Memo fields and hold 'verbal' responses that will comprise of up to 2000 characters.

The problem that i am having is that the memo fields seem to be substituting carriage return/linefeed for a strange square character and when I use the memo field in a report I lose all formatting of the input data.

The result is something along the lines of

This is a list of data items

Item one
Item two
Item three

When I include the memo field in the report I get something along the lines of

This is a list of data items[][]Item one[]Item two[]Item three[]

The [] indicate the square I actually see in the text.

How can I convert the square character back to a CR/LF ?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Hello All,
I am having trouble identifying how to solve my access problem. I have a table that stores data in two columns. One is a code(number) and another is the description for that code(memo). Currently the code column is being used as the data for a combo on a another table using a lookup on a textbox. On the form that this drop down appears on I need to have the description display for the particular code selected in the combo box. Is there an easy way to do this? I could do a lot of if statements but that seems unnecessary.

I have deleted an important voice memo off my iPhone 3Gs which I had not previously backed up on itunes (stupid I know). I have downloaded iPhone explorer and found a file recordings.db could this be my missing file and how do I listen to it. So far I can't open it at all. Is there any other way to get my memo back?

A:Deleted voice memo

That .db file is a SQLite database, which you can edit and view using free tools. Download one of those tools—the SQLite Database Browser—and install it on your computer. Open up the sms.db file, and click on the Browse Data tab.
Click to expand...

I don't think this contains sound files from what I have read. It looks like all the .db file will tell you is the numbers that were called, etc.

I think you are in trouble because you have deleted them without a backup. If you had backed them up they are stored here via sync :
My Music\iTunes\iTunes Music\Voice Memos

Since that is not the case you might try looking in this directory using Iphone explorer.

So as you can tell from the post count I'm new here. But from some of the threads i have seen already thought id bring my problem to you guys. A couple of days ago my physical memory just jumped up out of no where. It used to idle around 10% when i wasn't doing anything, but now its around 35%. Doing every day tasks i don't notice it too much but when i play games i do. And to make things worse along with this problem when i play this game, Smite, my pc often like to just shut off. I don't mean shut down... just power down. Its a lap top. I don't know much about computers, still learning. But from what i have read the shutting down thing seems to come from something overheating? It has only happened while playing video games.

I previously saw this thread, 'sluggish pc, high-physical memory, svchost', and took some advice from it. Such as running cleanmgr.exe, deleting temp files (from start search - %temp%), ran Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, ran SUPERAntiSpyware, as well as turning off several things under the startup tab in msconfig

Other then that the only other thing i have done, i thought it was my video card at first. And i went to the NVIDIA Control Panel from the 'Control Panel' and got the error "You're not currently using a display attached to a Nvdia GPU". But went to their wed site and downloaded new drivers and fixed that error.

I have a corrupt FPT file that I cannot repair. The DBF that is associated with it has 52 records of information. Ive pin-pointed where the corrupted fields are. I have a memo field with the name mplacement. There are exactly 4 so called corrupted records in the mplacement field. The corruption starts at record 18. Records 18 21 seem to be the corrupted ones. Records 1 17 seem to display information correctly. When I export the information from this DBF into an XLS, it only goes to record 17 and then quits, leaving the rest of the records out. When I open the FPT with a Hex Editor, the data displayed ends with record 17, like there is no more data.

Here?s the tricky part. When I open the application and go into 4 records (other than the 4 corrupted ones) and enter data into that mplacement memo field, it magically fixes the FPT and I dont get the Error 41, Memo file is missing or invalid anymore. When I open the FPT back up in a Hex Editor, it shows me records 1 17 and my newly added data for the 4 entries at the bottom. I still can?t seem to recover all of the data from the memo field from records 18 52. Ive got backups (at the time of corruption) of the DBF and FPT so I can try anything. Any help is much appreciated.

I am new to windows 8 - i got a new laptop with it so it wasn't my chocie
Among many things, there is one thing that makes me cry. Lack of those sticky notepads on the desktop. I always had them in windows 7 and I really miss them and I can't find anything like that for Windows 8.
I downloaded several apps for that from windowsstore but they don't allow you to 'stick' them on normal desktop. They work only on that weird desktop and you have to enter the app to see your notes. Not very usefull.
So I was wondring if anyone here can help me with that
Is there any way you can have a sticky notes on normal screen, just like in windows 7 ?

A:sticky memo note pads

exactly what do you use the sticky notes for? there are many to do apps in the Windows Store. as well as more traditional sticky type notes. for many of the apps, you can pin the stickies to the start screen. you don't have to launch the app to see the notes.

for a to-do list, I have a very basic one called to-dos. it's very small and light but it let's you see your to-dos from the start screen without opening the app.
there are lots of them out there but this one does what I need so I just kind of stuck by it even though it is very plain.

for sticky note type apps:

I like Sticky Tiles. You can have either a small tile or a full size tile for your sticky. It lets you do multiple colors as well as multiple styles. And the pins look great on the start screen. The only negative I saw was that once you choose your sticky's size, you can't later change it. You can only choose the size of the sticky at the creation of the note.

Memo Stick is pretty good. it has a cork board screen to pin multiple stickies of different colors. and then you can also pin these stickies to the start screen. not only does it let you pin individual stickies, but its main app is a live tile that'll rotate through your stickies. the only negative is the font for the pinned stickies on the start screen can be too small depending on the resolution of the screen.

there's task which has a single screen that looks like a cork board where you pin stickies to. but there's no start screen stick... Read more

I am currently using Microsoft Access 2002. I wanted to know if there was a way for me to append an entire column from a table into a single memo field.

I am trying to make a distribution list memo field in an access table. I wanted to grab an "email address" column to upload into this memo field. I could reference the memo field later on when I send emails from Access.

Is there any way to do this?

A:Microsoft Access - Appending Table To Memo Field

First, you don't really give enough info: is this a one time append or is this for continuing functionality in a form?

If it is the latter, what you would probably need to to is create a list box that populates all the email addresses in your database. Then, based on which items in the box you chose, you could loop through, using vba, and create a string value. Once you have the string with the email addresses, you would commit that to your memo field.

Hope this helps,

In DOS-based Alpha 4, a database I've been using for years, text fields were limited to about 250 characters, but a memo field, stored separately from the rest of the record, if I understood this, was possible with far more space.  In migrating via Excel from Alpha 4 to Access, I seem to have lost the contents of the Memo field.  Does anyone know the filename where such fields were stored, perhaps dependent on the original table name to which they apply?  I do not think there were any such files with the .dbf extension, which constitute tables typical for databases.  I imported all files with that extension, and there were only 2, the 2nd a set of "child" records related to the first.  Any hints on where to look and how to re-attach this information would be appreciated.  I'm presuming some key field in common, of course, but don't know which of the many files in the old collection of such (that orchestrated all the database functions) is the one to try to import into, perhaps first, Excel, and then into Access.  Thanks for any help offered. (One thing I'll be trying, not done yet, is to just look for large files, regardless of extension, and snoop to see if I can tell what they contain.)

We have an MSI all-in-one PC with touchscreen. I'm hoping to find a software package to centralize the happenings in our home. I've done some searching, but I don't really know where to start.

We're hoping to find a software package that...
- Checks multiple accounts for new mail
- Present a memo board so we can leave each other short messages
- Track a calendar so we can all add and update appointments
- Warn of upcoming birthdays, chores that are due, garbage day, etc...
- When idle, show photos, a clock, alerts, etc.
- Shopping list
- Works with the touch screen for most functions
- Eventually will control the X10 or ZWave power controllers for lights, etc.

...basically, replacing the whiteboard on our fridge, the calander on the wall, the constant nagging the kids to do their chores, and the lack of communication between us when we set up appointments, etc.

Does anyone know of software that does this? How about some Google search terms that might find some results?


A:Looking for centralized Home software; Memo's, chore lists, calendar..

I doubt you will find a single software package that can do everything you are asking for.

A few questions you should answer:
You have a single "Home PC", not a "Home Server" with multiple client PC's, correct?
Do more than one person need to use this single PC at the same time?
Does everybody log in and use the same Windows user account?
Are there any restrictions for some users such as children, or does everybody have Administrator authority?
Are you looking for a free solution, or are you willing to pay $$$?
Are you willing and capable to put in whatever time and effort is needed to accomplish all this.
MS Office Outlook email client can do a lot of what you want, but it is not free.
Windows Live Mail and Thunderbird are free, but have fewer features and capability.
Some of this might be done with Windows security and permissions, depending on how you are using User accounts and storing data.

You may be able to find a Business or Individual in your area that specializes in Home Automation that can help you, but it will not be free.

I hope I'm wrong and someone knows of a package like you want, but I believe if such a software package exists, it would be well known and used by a LOT of people, including me.

Hope this helps,

There seems to be no set limits to number of Characters (256, 512, 1024)

I've tried using the free support Site (Knowledge Base) And have not found an Adequate Answer.

Thank You In Advance for Any Help.

And yes, I did set the property to 'can grow' and 'can shrink'. I can't figure what the problem is. Even if I stretch the field out huge, it still is cut off when I view the report. And in one case, the same field prints fully when it is used on one report but on another similar report the same field is cut off. I can't see any differences between the two report settings.

I know this is probably a rather tiresome query, but I've surfed the net endlessly and not found a solution. I'm attempting to populate a memo box, which depends on user choice from a chain of combo boxes (unbound).

I'm creating a classroom planning/assessment database application (the new Learning Essentials for those involved in Australian Education). The system I'm creating, database-wise, is a little complicated (I am an absolute self-taught beginner, so please be kind and precise with your terminology, explaining where I should find the tools you mention). We have 7 "KLAs", which are each chosen with an "Assessable Element" (depending on the KLA) for each grade, which each act as an umbrella for a number of "Knowledge and Understandings" (each K & U has a descriptor of more than 255 characters. Under each "Knowledge and Understanding" is a dozen or so "Detailed Elements" (that the kids get assessed on). So I have the following hierarchy of tables:

Assessable Elements
Year (or Grade in America-speak)
Ways of Working (differing and dependent on previous choices)
Knowledge and Understandings (includes the descriptor)
Detailed Elements

Each table is linked in hierarchy to the one above via foreign keys (and sometimes to more than one table above (my description is the simplified version - it's more complicated than that). So you can imaging that the KLAs table is quite small (only 7 re... Read more

Ok - I've searched the forums, but cant find a similar problem and answer.
Program: Access 2000
OS: WinXP Pro SP1

I've got a database, and one of the tables is a supplement report table. The fields are:
SuppID / Autonumber Long Integer / (Primary Key)
OCA / Text field / (Case number)
SuppDate / Date/Time / (date supplement entered)
SuppInfo / Memo / (memo field for entering the text)

This table is associated to my main database by the OCA field, which is working fine in the querys, and bringing the information up in the reports. The problem is that when I enter about 1 full page of text in the memo field, and then print it in the report - the last few lines are not printed out.
I tried breaking the full text down in its paragraphs and making them in several entries under that OCA. That works fine again in the report, except even though the amount of text in the SuppInfo fields are less for each record in that table, the report still will not print the last few lines out.
I thought that maybe I had reached the character limit in the memo field originally, but when I broke it down, it still cuts it off.
Any suggestions and help would be greatly appreciated !

Thank you,
John R.

The problem in a report is that you are by default limited to the size of the box that you create in the report. The good news is that you can change this. Go into the report in design view and go into the properties of the note control. Under the format tab change the "Can Grow" option to yes. You may have to play with your report a little to make this look good. Keep in mind that the growth is always down and not horizontal.

For the past week or two I have noticed random graphics issues in World of Warcraft -- screen freezes for several seconds then flickers and then leaves artifacts on the screen and then eventually things like water areas turn black and it gets too annoying to play.  Close the game and open it again and it starts out good again but within a short time (maybe 5-10 minutes?) it starts all over again.  First thought it was the game as obviously they are going through lots of patching with the new expansion but have not found any mention of others with this issue in the forums so far. So I found that Lenovo had thier LSC tools and installed and ran the hardware scan --- turns out my GTX860M is failing the memory tests.  But the tool does not say WHY or in WHAT WAY --- just gives a code to send in to support but my laptop is a few months out of warranty apparently so I thought I would try here.  Worth a shot right? So the Final Result Code it gives is W16FL644X-GAAZC8. I have the most current drivers from Nvidia --- first I thought that was the problem because Lenovo's site only offers the drivers from July which are several releases back so I tried their available version but same issues so I re-updated to current. I have tried to find anything that can help me determine more about what causes it to fail the memory tests and what the likely solutions might be (outside of replacing) but with no luck for anything since Win10 has been out -...

Hi everyone,

I am trying to disable a memo that comes up every time I open up Word 2013. It says, "Welcome back, pick up where you left off." It is pretty annoying to see that every day.

I have researched it and found the instructions for disabling this memo in Windows 8, but I have Windows 7, and I can't find directions for Windows 7. Here are the Windows 8 directions:

I can follow those instructions right up to the end, but there I see differences from what they say. They say, "Now uncheck the option 'Replace all child object permission entries with inheritable permission entries from this object'."

But I see two options to check or uncheck, unlike the one option in their screen shot. In mine it has these two:

"Include inheritable permissions from this object's parent" (this is checked)

"Replace all child object permission entries with inheritable permissions from this object" (this is unchecked)

So the one they say should appear checked (and should be unchecked to disable the memo) is already unchecked, and one that they don't mention for Windows 8 is checked.

Should I uncheck the one that is checked? Would anything undesirable happen if I did this? Is there anything else I should do?

Thank you,

You'll see the various documents listed under sub-keys. You need to delete those keys and then make that location read only
