Re: Thom to the RESCUE!!! new [re: bluepennylady]  

Yes, that's funny, in a sisterhood sort of way. It's nice to know you'll be there to duplicate my situation whenever I get myself into a quagmire. Does this pertain to automotive screw-ups and banking mishaps, too?

On a serious note (although I'm sure Thom gets tired of all this hero-worship), I cannot think of a single other program I use where you could pretty much count on a reply the day after Christmas.

Re: Thom to the RESCUE!!! new [re: tictictic_OnEbay]  

Sue,

Sure,,, In fact I had a truck thing this morning. The diesel would not start. I was on the verge of getting extremely irritated when Dale came to my rescue. And banking misshaps, well, just had one of those too. I have been on a roll

Dale asked my what in the world I was doing when I said "yes" at my computer last night. I told him, I just did the same thing Sue did. Now I have to figure out how to correct it. He just shook his head at me and asked why I would want to create a problem,. I never though of "sisterhood" I will remember that line

we girls must stick together you know.

And I am with you. There isn't anyone I know of that will answer inquiries the day after Christmas!

Re: Help!! It's stuck! new [re: AquilaStamps]  

Garry, I've studied your instructions next to Thom's instructions and I can't see any significant difference. I promise you I followed your instructions to the letter. My Windows Explorer was already set to not "Hide file
extensions for known file types", so that wasn't it. I think it had something to do with searching for [AuctionLots] first, although I don't know why exactly. I do know that there is still a line in my ini file that says DescrWidth=375, but it's in the section titled INVENTORY. If you search FIRST for just DescrWidth=, you get to that line in the AuctionLots section rather than the Inventory section.......at least I think that's what happens (using Notepad). And on further reflection, I see that using Notepad's Find function may have been the problem. Once you got me to the AuctionLots section, if I had just scrolled down to locate the DescrWidth line, it would have been the correct one to edit. However, you had me use Find again, and I think that bumped me into the Inventory section which was the OTHER of the two DescrWidth lines in the file.

Close only counts in dancing, right? LOL.

Thanks again for your help. Have a great 2007.

Sue

Sue,

I am going to stick this one in my AW2000 file I have for fixing problems/issues.

Now to decide how to title it. "Help It is stuck" Or, "Can't move the divider" Or, "MIA description field"

Re: Help!! It's stuck! new [re: bluepennylady]  

Yeah, I know what you mean. You have to try to figure out what you will be looking for many months or even years from now. I've come to the conclusion that I have to put the operative word at the beginning of such files, I mean the name of the files. Like DRAG, border stuck or RESIZE, cannot. Funny. Eventually, we'll just be talking or whispering to our computers. We'll say, "Hey Dummy...how do I drag this damn stuck border in AW?" and the computer will flash us a half-second picture of a scowly face or the middle-finger salute and then open the right file.

Sue:
You are more than welcome. Funny thing Is that I messed up my window the way you did. Then did the instructions I gave you and it fixed mine. The only thing that I can think of is I did a dummy somewhere when typing the directions.

All that matters though is that you're up an running and you don't have the "teeniest window for descriptions in all of AW2Kdom".

Take care and good luck with the catching up you must have to do.

Re: Help!! It's stuck! new [re: AquilaStamps]  

I know this much, that file is now saved to my AW2000 How to fix problems folder. Geez, how could I forget that

My description field that I purposely messed up to help Sue is now fixed as well

so we are all good to go!
