validate a field based on sum of other fields
I have to assign commission to agents for each "order". I can have anywhere
from 1 agent at 100% commission to 5 agents with every possible combination
of percentages. Obviously, I need the percentage entries to only add up to
100 and I'd like to force the user to adjust the figures until they total 100.
Firstly, am I right in assuming it would be better to be assigning the
agents to the orderIDs in separate records: OrderID, Agent, Agent Percentage
(as opposed to having one record contain the OrderID, Agent1,
Agent1Percentage, Agent2, Agent2Percentage, Agent3, Agent3Pe...Pivot Table Calculated field #3
I have a pivot table with columns for No's, Yes's and Grand Total. I would like to calculate the % of Yes's by
dividing the Yes's by the Grand total. Can someone give me an easy explanation of how to do that or a source? I have tried every thing I can think of and the directions I have found have not helped.... Thanks, Ann
To calculate total percent Yes, you could use the GETPIVOTDATA function
in a formula outside the pivot table. For example:

I have created a simple form in Word 2007 with maybe 2 or 3 fields across and
3 or 4 fields down, but my problem is I would like to be able to lock the
field positions in place on the screen. When I type in a field, the field to
the left moves. I need to lock the position. Can this be done.
Most forms designers put form fields in table cells of a fixed dimension.

I am using an XMLValidatingReader to validate an XML file received via a web
service. I want to verify that the incoming file matches the XML schema.
When testing the validation routine, the XMLValidatingReader correctly flags
mis-matched tags such as <abc>some content</xyz> but does not catch other
errors. For example, it doesn't catch tags that are not part of the schema,
doesn't catch missing tags where the schema has minoccurs="1", and doesn't

Through either VBA or Modifier, is it possible to make a field that is

I doubt it. The best that I could come up with was to just have VBA fill

Any other ideas?
I suppose the only other way is through Dexterity.
The field is the "Interview Range from 1 to" in the HR Interview Setup
