In Outlook Express my mail used to sort itself into date order no matter where I sent it, now it doesn't and it's all over the place. Can anyone help? Thank you, Kay.

Preferred Solution: {Solved} Message date order

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: {Solved} Message date order

Just click on the column header of the field you want to sort by. It should hold that setting in future openings of OutlookExpress.

Answer:Solved: order of date

Look at the file names, the one after the problem one is named "GPBU" and the ones above it are named "GBPU".

They are in the correct order based on the file names.

Happy Holidays, everybody!

I've got a 90th birthday picture project that I'm assembling and am getting pictures from several sources. Sometimes I'll get two or three sets of image files, all of which are labeled "img_001.jpg, img002.jpg, img003.jpg", etc. These come from several past years. When they're dumped from a thumb drive to my working folder, and then displayed, they get all intermixed. (I use irfanview to view the collection, to assure they're sharp focused, etc.)

I sorted the folder by date, went to the first file and launched irfanview. I get the selected file. If I click the "next arrow", I might get the next physical file, not the next-by-date. The program has a slideshow function that will sort it for you and display by date.

What I really want is to get the files into the date order physically on the disk, so that when copied onto a digital picture frame, for example, it will play sequentially by date if possible. I don't know that they have a lot of intelligence, to sort the pix by itself.

I tried sorting by date and the copying to a different folder on a different disk, but it always changes when I access it afterward. With 400+ pictures, I don't want to do them one-by-one.

Any freeware out there that'll do it for me?

Thanks!

Why does it say that I will receive the laptop 2 weeks from now when it says that I should expect it within 1-3 days?

Answer:Dell site says XPS 15 gets delivered in 1-3 days, the order date for my order is 2 weeks from now...

Generally when that happens there has been a burst of orders, or there is a part on back order and the sales site hasn't been updated yet.  The delivery times are just estimates and could be sooner or later depending on various conditions.

It looks like the 31 March deadline for the latest Edge promotions is the date of invoice rather than the date of order. Given Lenovo's reported long build time and slow delivery (= late invoice), I suspect that ording now from the Lenovo web site will see an invoice date outside the qualifying period. Even a dealer who says he can 'get one in' may not deliver and invoice until April or beyond. I think the only option is to find a dealer who unequivocally has current stock.Can anyone shed any light on the likely position. I do, though, wonder about trying to take advantage of Lenovo Cashback at all, given the horror stories reported here.

Answer:Edge 31 March promotion deadline - order date or invoice date?

My experience with cashback is a deathly silence from Lenovo to emails asking for progress on the cash or even recognition that there has been a registration for cashback...Currently considering giving Lenovo some publicity on the matter.Unless you have a lot of time to possibly get no where I would steer clear of the alleged cashback scheme...

Answer:Getting my recent documents in date order (XP)

Not true that Start>Documents are always in alphabetical order - you must have done a right click and then Sort By Name at some time; Sort By Name is also available in Programs, Favourites etc.If you disable this it will only list the documents, files and other items used in the order they were undertaken.

Hello and good morning to u all. I have itunes on my windows XP machine which ive been using for over 4 years...i think itunes is the best music player out there, but ive got one problem that i'm hoping that can be sorted out for me here today. I have an extensive music library(like most people)...and my music is sorted by DATE ADDED,...as i'm accustomed to this way...but here is my problem...when I sort by date added...the track numbers in the all my albums appear out of order....just like here:click hereI'm sure like myself, there are loads of people that like to listen to an album in the EXACT WAY that is on the CD recorded by the artist. I know i can re-arrange this as a playlist but its a lot of hassle and it wont solve the problem in my actual music library which will still show in the incorrect order. There MUST be a solution out there.....When I listen to music I most start my listening session with the music I have added most recently. If I have added an entire album recently I want to hear the album in the order the "artist" intended it to be heard. I would think many people would be keen to hear the things they have added most recently. The lack of an option to sort by "Date Added by Track#" is terribly annoying for me.

Answer:down load e-mails in date order outlook 2000

I'm not sure that you can change the order in which they are actually downloaded. However, you can change the order in which they are displayed. If you click on the "Received" tab it will sort them. Click it again and it will reverse the order and so on. You can also click e.g. the From tab to sort them that way.

When I download photos from my Sony Cybershot to my notebook, using Windows Camera wizard to MY PICTURES relevant sub-file, they remain in the jpg file (& date) number order. But when I view or edit them in MS Picture Manager, I find some of my photos date order has been mixed-up compared to the order of taking and storing them on the camera folder and in the Explorer/My Pictures sub-file. So, when I simply wish to view them in a slideshow sequentially they are of course displayed as well out of order. Nor can I find a facility in MS PM to re-arrange them in date order? Furthermore, MS PM will not allow me to drag & drop them back into the date order (which would be a long job sometimes with holiday photos in any case!).

For a long time, if I downloaded a folder from Google chrome, it would go to the downloads folder in Microsoft explorer with the latest downloaded file on top. I'm not sure how I changed it, but somehow the download folder now has the looks of the music library with categories in the details view of "name","contributing artist", "title", "album". I can sort them by name alphabetically, but not by date downloaded. If I don't remember the name of the download, I'll have to search for it in this huge folder of lots of different downloads, and if it has a weird name as some downloads do, it will be difficult. Is there a way to go back to getting the downloads folder like a documents folder (or however it was) and be able to arrange them by date downloaded?

Answer:Download Folder has does not display downloads in order/by date

Right click and choose sort by date.

Hi,
I would like to use a VLOOKUP formula in my bank statement sheets in order to populate item codes from a lookup table. Some of the entries (lookup values) in a statement contain a date in the form of ddmmm (e.i. 21JUL). Is there a way of creating a VLOOKUP formula that will ignore the date in the lookup value and therefore populate correct item codes into the statement sheets...for example I have several instances of the entry BANK TRANSFER ON ddmmm, where ddmmm is the date (21JUL, 11AUG, 05SEP). I would create a lookup table with a single entry BANK TRANSFER ON and the VLOOKUP formula will recognise this entry ignoring the date in the lookup value.
Hope it makes sense. Thank you in advance. Heidi

First the background: We are gradually deploying Office 2007, but not everyone in the agency has it. I have both 2003 and 2007 installed on my system, but I do my work in 2003, and none of our databases have actually been converted to 2007 format (at least, none that I work with). There are occasionally people who use 2007 when viewing databases, but I don't know if any of the people who are working in this particular database are using 2007. The problem is reproducible in 2003 and so I've been trying to fix it here. The query behind the problem report used to work. It has been a problem for several months (it is run monthly, and every month for the past five they've had problems with it) and I've finally gotten to the root of the actual issue.

The purpose of the report is to generate invoice for outstanding loans. The DateNextPayment is a calculated field based on the payment plan for the loan. It is calculated using a function in the query named qryGetSitesDDInvoices1.

Hey guys,
I have a question about coding and setting an excel file to send emails. I am using an excel file to track maintenance work orders and I would like to get an email each day for each work order that is requested to be finished on that days date. I have attached the excel file I am using, and the column that is important is C, "Date Needed" - If that date is today's date, the cell turns red and I would also like to get email notification about it. A separate email for each cell that matches today's date.

Also, if possible, I would like for it to look at all the sheets, not just the current month's sheet. For example, if a work order was filed in July but wasn't needed until September, I would still like to get the email reminding me that it needs to be finished on xx date in September.

I have attached the excel file I want to use.

I have searched all over this forum and others and have found many posts similar to this, but I am not a great manipulator of code, so I cannot get any of the other solutions to work.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

Hi everyone,I'm having trouble with another friend's computer, Compaq Presario R4000, XP SP2. She stated that one day she tried to start the computer and it would briefly start and then shutdown.

Hi guys,
My Laptop Inspiron 1525,Windows 7Ultimate,32 bit,started to display an out- of-date error frequently ,When I adjust the date and time  setting in the BIOS ,the problem again appears on the next day.Would anyone suggest a remedy for this problem.
Regards

Answer:BIOS error(out of date) frequent message

Hi TARMOH,
Are you using an original Dell OEM Adapter? Is the adapter frayed? Could you test with another power adapter if possible? 
Restart the system and press f2 key to enter BIOS - check the adapter status in BIOS with and without the adapter plugged in. Also, wiggle the adapter cable at the end and see if the status changes in BIOS at any point. Check the battery health in BIOS (if applicable).
If possible, update / flash the BIOS - http://dell.to/2dcAKFq
Restart and enter BIOS and reset defaults - save and exit and check again. Also, ensure the time in Windows is set to current local time and date.
If the issue is still unresolved, then download the service manual here - http://dell.to/2cEg4VT - and reseat the cmos battery and check.
If it still does not work, then replace the CMOS battery, you would need this part - http://bit.ly/2cOxWuM
If the issue stands unresolved, then you would need to replace the motherboard. 
Personally, I would suggest you to invest your money on a new machine than to repair this old system.
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details(Name and Email) for case records.
Let us know if you have any other queries.

I've updated the BIOS and set the date and time in the BIOS but it flushes it to null values (00:00 & mm/dd/yyyy) every time it shuts down (no prob. if you just restart). If you hit F1, it boots fine and displays the correct date and time in Windows. Bad CMOS battery? But it's never unplugged... shouldn't it still hold onto that info. so long as it's connected to a power source - or is power completely interrupted when in Shut Down? I've run the full, 5hr. diagnostic in the BIOS and get no errors.

Answer:Black Screen Message: Time & Date Not Set

Hi there @Scott23, Welcome to the HP Support Forums! It is a great place to find the help you need, from other users, HP experts and other support personnel. I understand that your system is loosing the date and time when you restart the computer. I am happy to give you a hand with this.  It does sound like a CMOS battery issue. When a computer is powered down the CMOS battery is what would maintain the date and time. When the date and time is set, and as long as the system is powered the date and time is not going to reset, but if the battery is bad and the system is powered down or if there is a power flicker, you are likely to lose the date and time.  So looking at the HP and Compaq Desktop PCs - Motherboard Specifications, (Laurel-G), they do not mention anything about the battery, but from the photo it appears to be the disk-like item in the lower right. You may want to contact phone support over this if you wish to replace the battery. Please use the following http://www.hp.com/contacthp and create a case for your issue and contact HP. If you live outside the US/Canada, please click the link below to get the contact information for your region. http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/ww-phone-assist.html Please let me know how that works for you, and if it does resolve your issue, please mark this post as a solution. Kudos would also be appreciated.

Hi There

I can't seem to get this line of macro to work properly

If ActiveCell<=Range("C4") then......(Some lines get deleted)

Both the active cell and Range("C4") have dates in them. This line of code does not work properly. It does't matter if the date in the Active Cell is greater than the date in Range("C4"), the macro still executes the next lines of code and still deletes lines that it should not delete.

What am I doing wrong??

Mario
 

Answer:Solved: Date: VBA - One date less than another date

This would happen if either or both of the cells being evaluated are not dates or if the ActiveCell is blank. Try this test to see if this is the case; in either case you should use the DateValue function when evaluating ActiveCell vs C4. This is because the VBA interpretation of a date is much more forgiving than the Excel interpretation. VBA will interpret anything that looks like a date as a date e.g. " 12/21/2013" (with the leading spaces) will be interpreted by Excel as text whilst VBA will recognise it as a date.

Code:
Sub test()
If IsDate(ActiveCell) = False Then
MsgBox (ActiveCell.Address & " is not a Date")
ElseIf IsDate(Range("C4")) = False Then
MsgBox ("Cell C4 is not a Date")
Else
If DateValue(ActiveCell) <= DateValue(Range("C4")) Then [B] [COLOR=red]'use this in your macro[/COLOR][/B]
MsgBox ("OK")
End If
End If
End Sub

WARNING

Press <F1> to resume, <F2> to Setup

I would assume this is because my CMOS battery has had it? Is this a know issue with this laptop and how do you get at it to replace it?

Answer:Equium M40X - error message at start up; 0271: Check date and time settings

Hi

It sounds as though your notebook has the wrong time in the CMOS (BIOS).
If you can get into the BIOS, check the date and time settings and make sure they are correct.
It may also be a case of the CMOS battery going out. When this happens your notebook will tend to not keep the correct time.
In such case you should connect the AC adaptor and should leave it connected for about 20-24 hours. At the end of this period the CMOS battery should be fully charged.

Good luck and best regards

Hi,I've an approved RMA for full refund for an X230 that I'd purchased from Depot. The restocking fee was waived as I'd ordered another X230 (better EPP deal).I shipped back the unopened X230 and Lenovo acknowledged the receipt of the laptop on Feb 5. And since then there has been no update on my refund. I was told it would take 6 business days for the refund to be posted back to my account.Now it's over 2 weeks and when I contacted post sales support - this is the reply I got from them: *************Hi,We regret to inform you that i am unable to get any information on this order, I am still working on your order.

An answer like "i am unable to get any information on this order" from customer care themselves doesn't really inspire confidence with Lenovo. The second X230 that I'd ordered, has issues with the IPS display having a yellow tint and the touchpad being super jumpy.

The Windows Photo Viewer will not display photos in the order they are sorted by Windows Explorer.
This is not referring to the slide show feature, just the forward and back arrows.
The only order pictures can be viewed is by name despite Windows Explorer being set at view by date, ascending.
I have repaired Microsoft Live Essentials, uninstalled and reinstalled but the issue remains.
This is also not an issue with photo tags or photo names.
Windows Explorer sorts as selected but click a picture in the middle to view, click the forward arrow and instead of the next date picture being viewed, the next name picture is viewed.

Answer:Windows Photo Viewer; sorting order not the same as view order

Hi!

I upgraded to Windows 10 recently as well, I have the same problem and I also have a solution. However, I do not know, if it is ideal. :-)

What is obviously missing is an entry in the registry called DropTarget. This entry tells Windows Photo Viewer to display the images in the sorting order of the folder Photo Viewer got called from.

Non-solution:
I saw that at least in my registry there is a DropTarget defined in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Applications\photoviewer.dll\shell\open\DropTarget. From the name of the key and from reading the docs this looks as if it would be applied to all calls to this program, but -if that actually is the case- for me this entry does not work. It has been there (at least) after my Windows 10 upgrade, also the "Clsid"="{FFE2A43C-56B9-4bf5-9A79-CC6D4285608A}" seems to be fine, but it does not do the job.

Solution:
For me, this problem was present for jpg and png files, but not for bmp, dib, gif, jfif and what else can be opened with Windows Photo Viewer. To fix this, I have added the following to the Windows Registry:


Code:
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\jpegfile\shell\open\DropTarget]

I just got a new hard drive in a computer. (Professionally installed, so I would like to think there won't be a problem with it.) The hard drive is fresh out of the box, no OS. So I put in a CD to install Windows. The CD launches okay, and the installer program starts. It asks to format the hard drive in preparation for installation, warning me that I'll lose all data on the hard drive. I tell the program to do its thing. After a little while, it reports success, and the computer reboots.

The computer finishes booting after a disturbingly short time and I get the message, "Operating System not found." This is technically correct, but the computer shouldn't know yet if there's an operating system; the Windows installation CD is in the drive, and it should be running. I try various Windows and Linux boot CD's, and the result is the same- the computer is simply not checking the CD-ROM before attempting to find the OS.

I've tried accessing the BIOS screen and manually fixing the boot order, but I can't. No matter how many times I press Ctrl+Alt+B or F2 or F12, the computer reports, "Operating System not found" and halts. I'm at the end of my rope at this point, and don't what to do but buy a new computer.

Many thanks for your time and help!

Answer:Solved: Randomizing Sub Running Order

Hey Ersin,
The following code will run do what you ask. It is also expandable so if you want to go to 4 macros, just change MaxNumberOfMacros to 4 at the top of the code (also would need to change iterations to 4). Also it allows you to run less then all macro, by setting Iterations to however many macros you want to run (For example, you have 3 macros and you want to run 2 random ones). It prevents the same macro from being run twice. If you want to use more meaningful macro names, you have to replace the for loop at the beginning with a series of MacroList.Add statements and just add strings (and change the MacroToRun string to not add "Macro" at the beginning).
Code:

Sub Random()
Dim MacroList As Collection
Set MacroList = New Collection
Dim MaxNumberOfMacros As Integer
Dim Iterations As Integer
Dim i As Integer

MaxNumberOfMacros = 3
Iterations = 3

For i = 1 To MaxNumberOfMacros
MacroList.Add (i)
Next i
Call NextMacro(MacroList, Iterations)

End Sub


Sub NextMacro(MacroList As Collection, Iterations As Integer)
Dim MacroNumber As Integer
Dim MacroToRun As String

MacroNumber = Int(MacroList.Count * Rnd() + 1)
MacroToRun = "Macro" & MacroList.Item(MacroNumber)
Application.Run (MacroToRun)
MacroList.Remove (MacroNumber)
Iterations = Iterations - 1
If Iterations > 0 And MacroList.Count() > 0 Then
Call NextMacro(MacroList, Iterations)
End If

I am interested in dual booting "XP". I believe I know how to do this. My questions are:
1- What order should the OSes be installed on the HDD. If "XP" should come first, how do I 'move' "Ws 7" to a different lettered partition?

2- I want a separate partition for "data files." Where do I put this partition in relationship to the two OS partitions?

3- Once all this is set up, will both OSes be able to access the one data partition?

Thanks, {redoak}

Answer:[SOLVED] How to partition and the order of OSes on a HDD

Well, if you already have windows XP installed that you will need to use a program like Partition Magic to make your self another Partition for Win7.

If nothing is installed.

First you need to install the oldest OS for dual Boot. In this case Windows XP
In the setup you will want to make your self 2 Partitions rather than one.

Once done, you can move to win 7

Run through the setup (Very simple) and Just choose to install windows 7 in the second Partition. Becuase its done in the correct order, it will build the dual boot option for you.

Hi,

I was browsing the information regarding pre-ordering Windows 7 in the UK for ?49.99 / ?99.99 and am relatively pleased with such an offer. My concern however is regarding information posted by MS at:

http://emea.microsoftstore.com/UK/Mi...dows-7-Preview

Now I understand that due to the forced use of the E version only a clean install will be possible; with that in mind- why does MS state under system requirements that a genuine version of XP or Vista is required to use this version to perform a clean install of 7?

It states on the page linked that "Operating System:
Must be running a genuine copy of the Windows XP or Windows Vista operating systems."

Now I would like to install this on a PC that doesn't have an OS (well is currently running Linux), so am I not alowed to buy this as I don't have a genuine version of XP or Vista that I'd like to sacrifice? It's left me a little confused. Can this be bought and installed on a PC w/o an OS? Does it actually require a genuine version of xp/vista installed?

Cheers,
Dean

Answer:[SOLVED] Windows 7 (UK) Pre-Order Concern?

themoodude, this is an upgrade option. You have to have an existing installation of XP/Vista to install. That is why it's so cheap! If you want to do an install on a clean system then the price is higher, $199 I believe.

When I have experienced problems in the past with my phone, router, or modem I have been instructed to turn them off and turn them back on to restore the connection. And that usually works. My question is this, in what exact order should these devices be turned off and in what order whould they be turned back on, or does it matter. My setup is as follows;
ethernet broadband modem--to--ATT microcell--to--linksys wireless router--to--Vonage phone modem. can anyone shed some light on this for me? Thanks.

Hello gifted computer people... today's question is:

In xp the default manner in which items are listed in a folder is alphabetically, right? Well, I have a number of folders containing files which all have a date in the name but which are otherwise named identically, ie., exercise log august 2011, exercise log sept 2011, etc... My question is, can I request the system to list the items in the correct order by the dates in the document names? Being listed alphabetically, obviously, they are out of order chronologically...

Thanks for any help...
 

Answer:Solved: Folder list order

No you can't....Your best option would be to rename them like so:

exercise log August 2001 > 08-11 exercise log.

that will do them in numerical order

Hi, I use Windows XP Pro. So far all seemed fine. I put the scanned photos in their appropriate folders and each photo is in alphabetical order. I have just noticed that the photos in this particular folder are not in alphabetical order (I'm sure they were before). I have one starting with H up the top and half way down, one starting with the letter B. All photo names start with capital letters so they all should be in order. Can anyone help, please?
Thanks ever so much, Maureen

How do I have the files in a directory, automatically renamed in numerical order? It does not matter which file is named to what number, just that the files are named from 1 to the number of files in that directory.

For example, there are 10 files in a directory:

Dog.jpg
Cat.jpg
Horse.jpg
Penguin.jpg
House.jpg
Mouse.jpg
Eat.jpg
Burger.jpg
Fries.jpg
Water.jpg

and rename them to

1.jpg
2.jpg
3.jpg
4.jpg
5.jpg
6.jpg
7.jpg
8.jpg
9.jpg
10.jpg
 

Answer:Solved: Automatic renaming, in numerical order?

I do not believe that Vista can renumber groups of files in that manner. Instead, it will rename them filename (number), filename (number+1), filename (number+2), so on and so forth. To accomplish this, select the group of files, right-click the desired first one and select Rename. Rename the file and press Enter.

Hi,

Sorry for posting this again but was advised to change the topic title.

i work for an internet business which sells on eBay. at the moment we take a lot of phone orders. obviously with eBay it keeps a record of the order on there, but with phone orders it involves so much paperwork being produced and filing, so when customers ring up to query something from a while back im having to go through loads of paperwork to find their order.

I was wondering if anyone can recommend a suitable piece of software that i can use where i would just enter details of their order, for example name, delivery address, items ordered and price etc etc. It would ideally be so if someone rings up and asks about a previous order i can open this program, click a few buttons and their order is in front of me.

im not fussed about keeping inventorys of stock levels and all that, don't particularly want anything over complicated, im good with computers and quite knowledgable but would prefer something simple.
another way i was thinking was to do my own "intranet" and have a form on there which i fill in and then it saves it on the computer so me and my two colleagues (which will become more as we expand) can view it.

i also looked into using microsoft access but not a fan of it.

any ideas would be much appreciated!!!

i've been advised to use Access and i have created a form and table etc but i was wondering if anyone has any templates good for this etc?
many thanks

Do you know i think I'm getting stupider instead of wiser!

Hello, all.

I recently purchased a 2GB micro sd card for my LG VX8550 phone. I don't have any problems transfering files or listening to music. However, I need help solving an annoying problem.

In the Album category of my phone's playback options, the songs get arranged alphabetically.

What's somewhat confusing about this is that on my PC (from where I'm loading the memory card) the songs I have in my individual album folders always have numbers before the titles to make sure they're played in order (01, 02, 03, etc).

It seems that the phone dismisses the manually inputed name of the song and reads the title digitally, and arranges the playback alphabetically, thereby usurping all sembelance of order, which is annoying when I want to play all the songs from an Album and find them playing all out of order...which is even more frustrating when listening to "concept" albums.

Any ideas on how to resolve this?
 

Answer:Solved: Songs Not In Order On Micro SD Card

Ok...Here's the deal...

VCast Music software only reads music alphabetically for songs that are imported from our own music libraries. This is because the software sorts based on ID tags.

I resolved this by changing the ID tags.

It's a very simple process, but very tedious as it involves tagging each individual song that I want played in a certain order.

Right Click on an MP3 file. Go to Properties--->Summary Tab

Make all the necessary changes (in my case, adding 01,02,03,04 etc before each song title that I'm going to be playing in album mode).

Anyway...now that this is resolved, I hope this thread will help someone in the future.

Cheers, all.

Hey folks,

I have an ASUS K55A laptop computer and I bought this particular laptop as a birthday gift earlier this year. This laptop is pre-loaded with Windows 7 Home Premium edition (64-bit version) and it is powered by an Intel Core i7 Quad-Core processor at 2.30Ghz. It has 8GB of RAM (DDR3 type RAM) on my system.

Using CPU-Z in my Windows 7 system, I determine that my BIOS update is loaded with this version: K55A.204 (BIOS date 03/13/2012). That BIOS is provided by American Megatrends Inc.

I couldn't remember which particular key that I have to press in order to access the ASUS BIOS during the POST (Power-on-self-test) process.

Anyways, what are your suggestions to this situation? Is it really necessary to update the BIOS for my ASUS K55A laptop?

Answer:[SOLVED] Is a BIOS update necessary in order to run Windows 8?

In order to fully support Windows 8 I suggest you update the BIOS.

Asus has an EZ Flash feature which allows you to update the BIOS from the BIOS...

I have a HP Deskjet 970CXI printer and WXP-SP2 is my computer operating system. Whenever I print a multipage document, the printer always prints in reverse order, that is, the last page is printed first. Even though I select "front to back" in the printing options, it still prints back to front. I have tried selecting "back to front" but it still prints in reverse order. This is especially annoying when I print a multipage document and have the printer print on both sides of the sheet andthe last page in my document doesn't have text for the reverse side. Printing begins with the last page and when the first page is finally printed, there is only text on one side so the document has page 1 and the reverse side is blank instead of being page 2. Then page two and page three are on the same sheet etc. I need to have page 1 and two on the same sheet. Anyone have an idea how to resolve this?

Hi all,
What I'm having trouble with is listening to music that I've ripped from my CDs onto the PC.
I rip these using Creative PlayCenter, so they go straight onto my Zen and also stay on the PC.
Each CD is created as a new folder, with the tracks inside it. Here's the problem.
When I use WinAmp to play one of these folders (File>Play Folder), it plays the tracks in a random order - not the order they are in on the CD.

Is there a basic setting I can change somewhere, so the files will be automatically played in the same order as they're listed on the CD? Or do I have to resort to creating playlists of every CD I rip onto my PC?

Any help with this much appreciated!
