    You can say what you want about Lotus Notes, if you have used it for a while and switched e.g. to Outlook, you’ll find yourself missing one or the other nifty Notes function.

    Already two of my customers “forced” me to use MS Outlook 2003 and since this isn’t likely to change in the near future, I implemented two of these handy Notes functions for Outlook 2003:

    1. The button [Send only] sends e-mails without storing a copy of it in the local mailbox.
    2. The button [Send and File…] prompts you for the folder where to store the e-mail being send.


    1. Download the Visual Basic module in the favored language.

        Send Mail Macros for MS Outlook 2003 (EN) (4.9 KiB, 4,346 hits)

        Send Mail Macros for MS Outlook 2003 (DE) (5.1 KiB, 2,648 hits)

    2. In Outlook open the Visual Basic editor.
      open VBE from within outlook
    3. Import the Visual Basic module.
      Import the VBE module Select the VBE module The VBE module was imported.
    4. Save the project.
      Save the VBE project
    5. Install the buttons in the toolbar.
      Open the Macros dialog Installing the button [Send and File...] Button [Send and File...] installed Installing the button [Send only] Button [Send only] installed
    6. When composing a new e-mail the additional buttons should appear in the toolbar.

    7. When clicking “Send and File…” the folder dialog is displayed before the e-mail is send.

    MyPad is a very compact PHP Editor. I developed this editor because I could not find a suitable PHP Editor with a Single Document Interface.
    The Editor I was searching for should look and behave like Notepad, but should be able to colorize PHP source code.
    Such a small Editor can be perfectly used in conjunction with a norton commander like filemanager.

    I tried a lot of differnet multi undo solutions, but every had at least one draw back. So I had to develop my on solution.

    If you want to use it, you don’t have to clutter your code by pasting in lots of undo-related subs, functions and variables. Everything comes within two small class files.

    This code is a VB implementation of the high precision multimedia timer which can be found in the winmm.dll.

    I wrote this code because of the same reason I developed the multiple undo class: I wanted to have a smart solution that can be easily added to different VB projects, that doesn’t clutter the code, that doesn’t let depend my project on another custom OCX or DLL file and that is object oriented as much as possible.

    A friend of mine asked me about how to let excel periodically update some worksheets.
    So the first thing I did was searching the web for a solution in Visual Basic for Applications. But the only one I found was to use a 3rd party ActiveX timer control which you have to place onto a userform. Then I found the VBA command “Application.onTime” and had an idea.

    Here is my solution only utilizing the VBA onTime command. No need for ActiveX control or any other 3rd party module.
