In outlook making Subject Mandatory

We often forget to write Subject in the outlook mail. These situations lead to embarrassment sometimes.  Here’s a help:

1. In MS outlook Press Alt+F11. This opens the Visual Basic Editor and then Press Ctrl+R which in turn open Project-Project 1 (left side)
2. On the Left Pane, one can see "Microsoft Outlook Objects" or "Project1", expand this. Now one can see the "ThisOutLookSession".
3. Double click on "ThisOutLookSession". It will open up a Code Pane on the right hand side.
4. Copy and Paste the following code in the right pane (Code Pane) and save it

Private Sub Application_ItemSend(ByVal Item As Object, Cancel As Boolean)
  Dim strSubject As String  
  strSubject = Item.Subject  
  If Len(Trim(strSubject)) = 0 Then  
    Prompt$ = "Subject is Empty. Are you sure you want to send the Mail?"  
    If MsgBox(Prompt$, vbYesNo + vbQuestion + vbMsgBoxSetForeground, "Check for Subject") = vbNo Then  
        Cancel = True  
    End If  
  End If  
End Sub 
 5. Close Visiul aBasic
Now whenever you try to send a mail without subject, a pop-up will be raised to remind you of the blank subject.

Quering Data Table

Datatable can be sorted using DataTable.Select()

Importing DataTable.Select() method results into another DataTable
Putting the results from a Select() query into another DataTable is often a requirement say for instance if you wanted to bind your results to a control. As mentioned above the Select() method returns an array of DataRows and since DataRows are the main building blocks of DataTables the process is very easy. Steps outlined are:

//copy the schema of source table
DataTable above24 = dt.Clone();

//get only the rows you want
DataRow[] results = dt.Select(”age > 24″);

//populate new destination table
foreach (DataRow dr in results)

Can’t I just use a DataView instead of calling DataTable.Select()?
You can and DataViews are directly bindable to many controls too, however it is not always the best solution due to the generally accepted believe among many developers that .Select() is much faster than using the DataView equivalent of RowFilter (property). I regularly interchange between the two for a lot of small database projects, however for the projects where I need to be processing a mega amount of data I pretty much stick with .Select() 100% of the time as I reckon it provides real speed (as in seconds, not PC invisible micro time) advantages compared to DataViews

In our particular case with a datatable of 75K rows, the using a dataview with a complex filter was nearly twice as fast as the equivalent select.
