Windows 7 text field spurious character generation

Question: Windows 7 text field spurious character generation

When I try to type in my password in the Windows start up screen spurious characters are automatically generated in the input field preventing me from inputting any password. If I do get into the system this effect happens in all accessed text fields. This has rendered my computer useless any suggestion of what the cause may be and how can it be fixed?

Thanks

I am looking to create a MS Word 2003 document for work that has a text field that has a character limit to it and I can't seem to find anything in Word that does that. I know it is possible, as we have various documents corporate HQ has us use that has text fields with character limits on them. Does anyone know where I can find this in Word 2003?

Thanks

I thought I read somewhere that it was possible to do a search on a reserved character by putting "" around it. I made the mistake of annotating some appended text fields with "**" (without the quotes) so I would know which records had been added. At some point, I want to remove those two asterisks. . . but, of course, I suddenly realized that Access recognizes an "*" as a wild card meaning something/anything, not the "*" character. So a search using Like "***" or "*'**'" either finds nothing or finds every record with anything in the field.

So the question is, is there a way to search for a literal "**" in Access? OBP. . . are you home today?

Thanks to the help given to me by the forum so far my Excel 2010 macros are now working perfectly again, but there is one strange anomaly.

In the middle of one of my cells there appears to be a capital T followed by a comma.

T,

When I click on the cell nothing appears in the data entry field, if I try and overwrite the characters it appears to work but when I leave the field the entry has the T, overlaid over it.

I've tried playing with various formats to no avail.

I've even deleted the column and then the row but the character is always there.

Is there any condition which will project a character onto a cell even when it's not entered as data.

I know the Include Field will include part of the text from an Include File if it is in a bookmark. The format is {IncludeText "File Path" Bookmark}. I have 2 files: Source and Target.

Source is a form template. I included a Text Form Field and gave it the bookmark AA. I also included other text in a "normal" bookmark, BB.

In Target I have 2 fields: {IncludeText "C:\\Source.dot" AA} and {IncludeText "C:\\Source.dot" BB}. The text from BB shows up, but the one for AA is blank.

If I go into Source and look under Bookmarks, both AA and BB are there.

BTW, I have tried it with the Source form both "Protected" and "Unprotected" and it didn't make any difference.

Any idea why this is happening, and more importantly, any idea on how to make this work? If not, it seems like a real bug in Word 2003 as they are both definitely considered to be bookmarks.

Thank you,

Stuart

I support a software program that has a proprietary menu item when you right-click a calculated field. It has been this way for 10-15years and has worked in WinXP through Win10 with never an issue. This past week I had 3 different customers tell me that when they right-click one of these fields to access what is normally the Cut/Copy/Paste/ menu that also includes our menu item, they are now getting the Windows default cut/copy/paste/Right to Left Reading order/Show Unicode control characters/ etc menu. The only thing I can think of that they all have in common besides these are all Window 10 64bit pc's, is that they all have one update to Adobe Acrobat (17.012.20098).
I was able to resolve for a moment on two of these workstations by having the user go into Language/Advanced settings and actually selected "English (Unites States) from the "Override for Windows display language" even though that settings is implied by the "recommended". But after the pc was turned off over night and back to it the next day, the problem is back and that setting is still selected. All language and regional settings on all the pc's are defaulted to English/Unites States. I do not know what other avenue to go in. Could something hae been switched on or off in Windows (by this Adobe update perhaps?) that would make the context text menu switch to Windows text default right-click menu?

Any help is appreciated!

Many times in the past when I would type plain text into cells of an Excel spreadhseet, I noticed that at point, the contents of a cell would turn into sharp signs (i.e. ####################). I did not know what triggered this, but I did notice that if I change the cell type from Text to General, the cell's text would come back to normal.

Today I had this happened again, and I was determined to find out what caused it. As it turns out, if you have a Text-formatted type cell and you type more than 255 characters in it, all the cell's contents will turn into sharp signs. In order to revert to the text you must either change the cell's format to General or truncate the text manually to a maximum of 255 characters.

The problem with formatting cells as General in a text-only spreadsheet is that you cannot use characters that make Excel think you are typing a formula; that is, you cannot use hyphens or "keywords" such as "not", etc, without prefixing them with a '. This is why I normally format all cells as Text when I know I will only type text in a certain spreadsheet.

Has anyone else noticed this, and is there a solution to have more than 255 characters in a cell without having to change its type to General? Thanks for any help.
 

Answer:Excel: Text in Text-formatted cells changes to ### after the 255th character

You might want to read this:
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/excel/HP051992911033.aspx
- in general, 1024 characters is the maximum allowable in a cell, but, as you have noticed, at 255 characters they are no longer displayed in the cell normally, but you can enter 32,767 characters in total, but after 255 characters they can only be read in the formula bar.
Also, if your cell only contains numeric data, then changing the format to General will leave you with information using scientific notation.
Alas, spreadsheets are spreadsheets and not word processors.

I would like to find out how I can code a random generation of an image along with text for a site. An example of the type of thing I am looking to achieve is similar to the bottle on the following link:

http://aromatherapy4soul.com/magic-bottle.htm

If anyone knows an easy way to do this for input into a wordpress site it would be greatly appreciated.
 

Answer:Coding for Random generation of Image and text

I don't know much about wordpress, so whether there's a plugin already out there that does what you want I couldn't say.

As to how possible or otherwise your task is, it depends on precisely what you want.
What they have is a predefined image, and a random bit of text, which is almost certainly a random entry from an array. That's relatively easy: about three lines of PHP not including the list of options.
If you wanted the image to actually be random in any shape or form, it becomes much harder.

Hello,

I am trying to download a address list from some POS software. I obtain the list through the software, and then download it as a .txt file to the A: drive. (that's the only option the POS software allows).

The problem I'm having is that after it goes to the A: drive and I open the text file in Notepad it only shows a portion of the address list. It's showing approximately 2650 lines of addresses (with more info that just addresses) even though in the POS software there is between 5000 - 20000 lines of addresses.

Is there a limit as to how many characters can be placed in Notepad? Or do you see any other problems with my situation? Any help or advice would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Question: Text Field Issues

While the main reason for this help request is to help me fix the text field problem Im having, there are a couple other problems as well.

It has become an ongoing problem, no clue what causes it. In certain games, so far only Mabinogi and Test Drive Unlimited, when I go to type something in a text field, my computer pauses, and people talking in Ventrilo repeat themselves over and over for a couple seconds. The same thing happens when I exit a text field in said games. No one else I have talked to has this issue, and I am fairly certain they have slower computers than me, so no clue what the issue is.

The other problem is my graphics card. I have an ATI Radeon x800 card, and when I am playing games, I get errors when it does not even seem to be taking up much memory. I was playing Test Drive Unlimited which I just got today, and I was getting a report error window for ccc.exe about every minute in game. If I ignored it, I could keep going, but eventually another error window popped up saying the same thing, so I shut the game down. I meet the minimum requirements, but I have no clue why its doing this. My computer has a history of overheating, but I don't know if its due to that.

Also, is there a program I can use to monitor the heat in my computer? I'd like to know if that is truly the problem here, as I have been told that my card could be damaged by now if it is overheating.

Hey everyone, I have data in the form of several rows, each of which has several words separated by ": " (colon + space) I would like each word separated in its own column, and have therefore used the Text To Columns command (under Data|Data Tools). But apparently you can only define one character as the delimiter, and if I define it to be just the colon, then I have a space at the beginning of each word. I know I can probably do a few extra steps to ge rid of that leading space, but my question is: can one define more than one character as a delimiter, under the Text To Columns command?

So I downloaded the 25GB of Tera Rising and I have to say its a great game, however I noticed that the load time of the game seemed to take a while and was HDD intensive.So I moved it to my SSD which is SATA II and this helped greatly with load time.Now though I am trying to figure out how to fix what is more of an eye sore than an annoyance in the game. When I run up to NPC's and other players are around occasionally they are all grey outlines and they havent populated with their skins/textures etc, but if you wait about 3 to 5 seconds the skins, gear, etc finally instantly fill the grey silhouette.I have tried to increase the graphics settings as well as decrease the graphics settings, as well as verified that I have the latest driver for my video card and it still occasionally happens, especially if entering new areas more so than already visited areas, so I was wondering if anyone else who plays this game has seen this and fixed it or just play the game and deal with the occasional silhouettes until the textures and skins are populated 3 to 5 seconds later?Lastly there does not appear to be a setting to increase the font size of the text for the controls in the game, so I have to squint to read stuff in a font size that is like a size of Font 6, when using settings of 1024x768 which is the lowest resolution available and 4:3 for square 19" flatscreen.

I play Tera too! I love it.As for the text size, there is an option called UI Scale. Have you tried changing this? If I recall correctly, it is a slider in the Graphics options menu. It changes the size of all the UI and text on screen. As for the textures/loading, that is an error I find in a lot of MMOs. I find things load better if I am in a less crowded channel - In Tera, any channel that says Low besides it will be fine. It simply can't load all the textures at once if the channel is crowded (is my theory).

Ok, first, I'm running Windows XP Pro SP2 on an HP Pavilion 8760c. It originally came with Windows 98, but the previous owner upgraded it to the XP sometime before giving the computer to me. I do NOT have any disks, neither the original system disks nor any restore disks, nor does there seem to be any restore partition on the hard drive.

First problem is -- for some reason when I try to type into any text fields in any windows based programs, the cursor goes into hyperblink mode, won't click into any text field, and won't let me type in any of them. I first noticed the problem when I tried to use internet explorer, I went to Google like normal and while it will let me type in the address bar at the top, it won't type into the Google search field. I have since found out it is NOT IE specific, but it won't let me type into the windows help search field, or the field where you enter a name for a restore point when manually setting it, or in the captcha box on a game program I use or pretty much anything windows based. I downloaded Firefox and I can type in Firefox with no problems, which is fine for searching the web, but does not fix the problem.

Second, with the system restore... this computer used to work fine.

Recently there's been an annoying little animation pop up whenever I click something. I can't really explain it, but it's similar to the blinking | you see when typing in text fields. Everything I click on something it shows up. It's really annoying. It even happens when I click a picture, except it appears as a HUGE blinking bar. Can someone help?

I create demo files for testing. The way I have it now I have the file laid out with two merge fields. These link back to another docucment where I input a month's worth of dates. The first being Date created and the second column is File Load date.

Once this DateInput doc is updated I go through each record in the merge document and save each one as the DateCreated number as the file name and as a txt file.

Any ideas on how to automate this? I tried using Access to fill in the merge and I was able to have it input today and tomorrow dates using command buttons and these subs

Private Sub cmdToday_Click()
txtFrom = Date
txtTo = DateAdd("d", -1, Date)
End Sub

Private Sub cmdTomorrow_Click()
txtFrom = DateAdd("d", 1, Date)
txtTo = Date
End Sub

But that only gets me two days, I need to see about automating the whole month.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

How do I get data from multiple text fields to show up combined in a seperate text field. I want to combine the First, Middle Initial, and Last Name fields so they will be combined in a seperate field I named Complete Name.

Answer:MS Access 2010 Text Field Question

There are 3 ways to do this.
1. This method uses a query to combine the data, but it will not store the combined data and it will not refresh on it's own if you add or change the data.
2. This method combines the data in and Unbound field by making it the Control Source of the Field. This will not save the data to a table but will automatically update.
3. This method uses VBA in the After Update Event Procedures of the 3 fields and will automatically update the data and also save it to a table if required.
The choice is yours.

Hi everyone!

I'm sure this is probably something very simple that I'm missing...

I am creating a document template for a specific document type.

I have two rich text controls added to a document via the developer tab.

The first is the document's number in a series of documents to be created. The second is the actual document title.

In the footer area, I want these to be shown in reverse - i.e. the document name, then the document's number, so I am making it very easy to check the number of the document when flicking through a physical folder.

I tried to do this with bookmarks and cross-referencing, but the bookmarks are not saved when you create a new document based on that template.

I tried with a macro, but after recording the macro, it didn't really do what I wanted.

Is there an easy way to get this working? If not, is there a way I can assign names to the rich text controls in my template to run a macro more efficiently?

I have an excel file with a column with values like 100, 200, 500, 500-02, and 500-04.
Access wants the column to be a number because 500-02 is not one of the first records.

If I use the acImport or acLink I get the same results. Which is an error importing (I get all the data just not the text values in the column) or a null value in the link when view from Access (even though you can open the spreadsheet with excel and see the true data). If I use the import Wizard and change the Field to text it that data is fine.

I also tried acImporting to an existing table with the field set a text but it changes it back to numeric and screws up.

I was in settings today and It gave me a message telling me I had to reset my settings because something or another was corrupt. I did so and most stuff works fine (Had to sign back into a bunch of stuff) but I do have one problem. Text fields no longer seem able to remember anything I've put into them. For example when trying to sign in here I usually just click the username box, "Bad-People" comes up and I click it to enter it automatically. But "Bad-People" doesn't come up anymore.
 
I figured resetting things just erased the history. That would have been fine but it also doesn't remember anything I enter new. So if I signed in here, then signed out, and then tried to sign in again "Bad-People" STILL wouldn't show up. This is a feature I use A LOT on a number of sites but it no longer works on any site I've tried.

Hi,

I am currently using Word 2003 and have created a template. Within the template are text fields. My current issue is that if I make a change to formatting in one of the text fields, it replicates to all of the text fields. To give an example in the screen shot if I enter text then change the formatting under Point 1 (Project Statement) that change remains with that text field. If I go down to the next form field, and before entering any text, make formatting changes, that replicates to all of the form fields below. Similarly if text is entered first, then a formatting change made i.e. bullet point, that then seems to replicate through to the rest of the text fields. Can someone please explain as to why this is happening? thanks.

Hey folks. This may sound like a minor problem but give it a read please. I noticed that when I happen to hold my left mouse button down on the desktop and slide it all the way up to the upper left hand corner of the desktop, then a two symbol wide invisible textfield is highlighted (see attached image "bluethingy").

I recall that having come across this anomally in the past that it occorred in conjunction with some malware but remember no details. There is something slowing down my computer at the moment but none of the malware seeking programs (ive gone through the list that majorgeeks recommend) that I have run has taken care of the lag, or this blue thingy. Does anybody have any insight into this blue thingy? Ill send the hijack this file if anyones interested, but am mostly curious about the blue field.

*** Curious about another thing: When visiting websites (using IE) with textfields for me to enter text, in some phases of my computers life the cursor when in this field blinks like a mad dog. This usually lets me know that theres some malware doing its thing and that its time for me to clean up a little. My question is if you have seen this happen: What kind of malware is doing it or where does it reside? - is it a helper? - is it unrelated to IE? Or is it not malware at all and just annoying?

Hey there, long time reader first time poster!

I'm currently working on a form that allows users to search for equipment. The category of the equipment is slectable through a combo box, and the searched text is entered in a text field. The results are displayed in a list box.

What've I've tried is using a 'Find' button to enter this sql query into the RowSource of the list box:

Private Sub Equipment_Find_Click()

Me.Equipment_List.RowSource = "SELECT Equipment.Type, Equipment.Manufacturer, Equipment.Model FROM Equipment WHERE (((Equipment." & strQuote & Me.Equipment_Search_Category.Column(0) & strQuote & ")=" & strQuote & Me.Equipment_Find_Text & strQuote & "))ORDER BY Equipment.Type DESC;"

End Sub

I hate my present computer and want to get a laptop that will have good processing for years to come.

I don't know anything about the significance of which Intel generation. Is 4rth generation necessarily better than 3rd generation?

Answer:How important is 3rd generation vs. 4rth generation Intel?

I haven't researched this in depth; however I remember hearing that the 4th gen Intels draw less power, resulting in longer battery life.

Not surprising, that is an ancient computer that should have been retired years ago.

4th generation processors(Haswell) are the current and newest models, and they do offer slight power improvements over 3rd gen models(Ivy Bridge) in laptops but both are very good series. Getting over years out of a computer probably isn't going happen with a laptop or any PC these days though. I'd just find a laptop that meets your needs and fits your budget and go from there; base it on screen size, CPU performance, memory, hard drive capacity, graphics card, brand, etc.

My Son uses Live Messenger to chat to his school friends but recently mentioned somebody else was typing messges in his conversation that he was not typing. Tonight i confirmed that messages were being written by somebody but appeared under his and his buddy's username. I pretended to be my Son and tried to draw out of the message writer who they were and what they could do, but they signed off.

Has anyone else ever been in this situation? Have I actually been hacked because they 'alleged' to be able to see my files, but when quizzed, i don't think this was true.

Any pointers?

Condition: Spurious Messages perporting to come from a couple of my 'contacts' in Live Messenger. Messages often contain URLs links which seem rather dubious.

I have the same error as ROB2910 and have noticed that none of these generated messages have a date / timestamp.

Have spoken to one of my 'contacts' from whom I appear to be getting these messages , they state that they are also getting similar messages perporting to come from my own Live Messenger.

Me being a BTInternet subscriber I get I get full PC & Internet Security via Norton Symantec - I have run a number of fullsystem scans but nothing shows up on the reports/logs.
Any suggestions???

Like ROB2910, I do not want to lose my contacts.
 

Answer:Spurious messages in Windows Live Messenger

Have now run a MS Update which has applied Service Pack 3 - when I next logged in the system went though a repair process on Live Messenger not sure if this is relevant (have Microsoft identified anything I wonder !!). Will report later if problem is turns out to be resolved.

I did this years ago with XP, worked for word/wordpad/notepad/and online, like here. Now that I bumped up to 7, forgot how to do it... I think a quick regedit

Surprised no tut on this. For me, it's much easier to leave the cursor where I want to insert the character than going to start>Accessories>System Tools>Character Map or start>search>charmap>charmap.exe, and then 4 more clicks to copy desired character. Remembering the keys, not going to happen.

Also, related question, once you finally get to character map, why 4 more clicks? Scroll to desired character>select>copy>paste. Seems select and copy are redundant. How about macros? I generally only use a few of these odd characters anyway, and rarely at that.

Or even better, how about speech macros for these characters? If there were speech commands for unusual characters (e.g., ?, ?, ?, ?) and numbers/math (e.g., ?, ?, ?), that could save a LOT of time. Ever try to find/insert the ? or √?symbol?

So, 1) character map in context menu? or even better, 2) speech macros for a greater selection of characters/symbols, including math?

Two questions, sorry. But related. Any help with either would be appreciated.

Do anybody know where I can find an open source or public domain text-to-speech program and a character program? Any hint is appreciated.
Thanks.
 

Answer:Looking for a Text-to-speech program and a character recognition program

WOCAR is the only free OCR program I have heard of, you should find it on most freeware/shareware sites. Try this link for various speech synthesis programs:

This probably has nothing to do with Windows 7, but I thought someone on this forum would know.

When in a text editor like on this forum or on Microsoft word and when I delete and hold it down it will be really slow. Characters would only delete every half a second no matter what.

Anyone know what causes this? When I restart my computer it's back to normal, but if I leave it on for 10+ hours it happens again.

Answer:Slow deletes (character by character)

In control Panel, All Control Panel Items, open keyboard.

Check there to see you repeat rate and increase if needed.

When the problem happens , check to see if it was changed.
If so, there might be some application or keyboard driver taking over.

Trying to recover the password for a WinRAR-file is nearly impossible. I understand that it takes forever, especially if the PW is quite long, an abstract word, and contains symbols. My question: Is there any method of going character by character? I don't know much about decryption, unfortunately. Such a method would help especially those people, who have some sort of idea of what their PW could be.I created my RAR-file that I need the PW for only a year ago and have tried every PW I use that comes to my mind - nothing. If only I knew the first or first two character of it, I'm almost certain to solve the rest of it.

Answer:RAR password recovery character by character?

A password is a security feature, one that is very important to many people. Since this is an open forum that can be read by anyone, including those who wish to obtain illegal access to files, providing such advice here would be irresponsible.

I use due dates on my Outlook tasks. When I customize my Tasks list (in the Calendar view) to group by due date, I just get too many groupings (one for each due date!). I would like to know if I can create a custom field called 'Due Month' and/or 'Due Week', extracted from the 'Due Date', so I can view my tasks by what is due during a given week or month. If the answer is yes, any suggestions on the technique I would use would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,

I have a table titled time_slips used to track the amount of time an attorney spends with a member. In the time_slips table there is a field titled reference_id which is a combo box pulling it's displayed information from another table titled references. Also in the time_slips table is a field named details which is native to this table.

My question is, can I have the details field auto-populate "no charge" when a certain reference id is selected (i.e. 300)?

Thanks for any help you can provide.

I attached my database what i would like to do is create a form when an end user will enter a corresponding user ID from that I wish to populate textbox fields with Agent Name, Supervisor, Location, Dept *all seperate text boxes of course* I have attached the database if someone could help me do this it would be great. Let me know if you need any further details to help get me through this.
 

Answer:update field A in form based on entry in field b

Welcome to the forum, before answering you question can I suggest some improvements to your database.
Currently you do not have any "Key", "Indexed" fields in your tables and there are no relationships set up between the tables.
Also do you really need the Archive Table?
The data looks like it has been exported in from a spreadsheet, relational databases work quite differently to spreadsheets, so to make the most of their advantages you need to correctly relate your Tables.
Your UserID Roster also has some disconnect between the Field Names and the actual data in them, particularly the Name and Type feilds.
In the Supervisor Table the Birthdate does not seem to have Translated correctly.

Hi. Here is the situation.

I have two tables (Field_a & Table A and field_b & Table b) and I wanna set up validation rule for field_b (Table b).

Rules needed for field_b:
1. If field_a (Table A) = 0, field_b (Table b) = 0.
2. If field_a (Table A) = 1, field_b (Table b) > 0.

Thanks a lot for the help!

I'm doing a quick-and-(very)dirty design as a proof of concept. During this process I fat-fingered the word Description, as Ddescription. No problem, I know what it means, right. But it annoyed me, so I changed the underlying table (where the error occurred), deleted the control from the form, and added the (now correctly spelled) control.

However, every time I try and ruin the form it wants a value for the now non-existent field Ddescription. I simpy click-through, and the form runs fine. When I look at the available fields in the form's View query's Field List, it still shows Ddescription, and i seems to think it's coming from the underlying table.

Any ideas on how I can remove this phantom field? I can't find anything called "The_View_for_form_FooBar" anywhere, but I know it must exist somewhere...

I am working on a database that stores genus, species, and variety I want to sort the data with genus, then species, then variety.

Now the tricky part. Sometimes there is no species. When this is the case, I want the database to sort that record off of variety.

I have though of a way to do this, but need help with the code.

If I make a species2 field, I could create an expression that would look at the species field. If the species field is empty, it could copy the data from variety. If it is not empty, then copy the data in the species field.

Once the species2 field has the updated data, I could then do a sort

genus, species2, variety

The report would have genus, species and variety showing and species2 would be checked off to not show in the report.

I am using Microsoft Access 2000.

Any help would greatly be appreciated.
 

Answer:Access - if field is blank, copy field A, if not copy field B

You should not actually need another field to do this, just another column in your report's Query. Something like this as a Field header :-

dummySpecies: iif(isnull([species]), [genus], [species])

this should provide a column with the species in if it there and the genus if it is not, which you can use in place of your actual species field in the report for sorting.

Hello everyone,

I have the current formula

CompPassFail: IIf([specifiedComp]>[PCcomp],"Fail","Pass")

This works O.K, but I am being told that it should pass or fail if is within -/+3percent. Both field are percentage fields, where[specifiedComp]is the main number that [PCcomp] has to more or less align to.
