Reading .wks file
Greetings...according to the Excel "help" file, as well as the file extension listing, I *should* be able to read an *.wks file, but Excel insists that it cannot. I am pretty sure the file was created in Microsoft Works. Is there a converter somewhere that I can download/install? Cheers - S2
Excel can read Works 2.0, not later. You have to save them in Works as excel
files or Works 2.0 or get a commercial

I have set up the IMC's Message Filtering to disable a previous
employee from sending mail from his home email address in to our
server. I am now being asked to block internal users with accounts on
our server from sending out to this users home email address. Is
there a way to block outbound email to one email address? We are
running Sybari Antigen on our server but I can't see of a way to do
this with that application either.

I have a table for recording college attendances, some of the courses are at
Campus 1 and some are held at Campus 2. I've got a field for course code,
course anme and a check box to show if the student is at campus 1.
When I enter the student ID number into the form, at the moment the name of
the course comes up automatically in the text book, as I think it's reading
the information from another database on the system.
At the moment I've got a check box on the Form to enter manually into the
table whether the student is at Campus 1 or Campus 2. What I wondered is if...Pivot Table Size
I have a pivot table that changes size because of the table that it
refers to is dependent on information inputed on another table.
sheet 1 has 3 options you can input (but one column that is empty rests
between the 2nd and 3rd column, that's why I can't use a pivot table
directly with this table) regular hours, other hours, and department
sheet two summarizes that table to three columns (essentially
eliminating the extra column)
Now on sheet one, when no information is inputed in a row, the results
are zeros, and the pivot table is empty. But once you enter in

I want to allow the group Everyone to have read-only access to a calendar in
a certain mailbox. I can do this by granting the permission 'Full mailbox
access' (under 'Mailbox rights', under 'Exchange Advanced', for the
particular user). However this also allows people to to do everything (ie:
they become read-write users).
I notice that every mailbox in the system has 'Read permissions' granted to
group Everyone. This does not allow other people to open items in the
mailbox, but as I understand it, permits Exchange Server and Outlook to do

There must be a standard way of doing this...

You can right-click on the field button in the pivot table, and choose

OR, select the cell that contains the field button

We loaded employees into Great Plains with e-connect 188.8.131.52 using
taCreateEmployee and taCreateEmployeeAddress. I need to wipe this data out
I know that with the new version of e-connect there is a taDeleteEmployee
but for now can someone tell me the tables I need to truncate out in order to
re-run the taCreateEmployee and taCreateEmployeeAddress?
The tables are listed below - these are the ones handled by the Employee
Delete procedure so I would assume these are the ones you would need to
manually handle now as well

will have all serial numbers for a given ID number across the table, thus:

I have established that there may be as many as four SN#, as few as 2 per
ID#. How would I go about creating this table?

You can't in the way you're thinking. However............you can start a new
document in landscape, layout the page you need, select all, group it, copy
it, and then paste it into the portrait oriented document. Rotate it 90�.
(You can ungroup if you need to move anything around individually after it's
been inserted into the target document.)
