IE Temp Names and Excel
I use a web-based application that generates CSV files. When I open
these from Internet Explorer they are automatically loaded into Excel
(2003). However after a few minutes I always get an auto save error.
The reason is that the filename created by IE will include something
such as .csv at the end of the filename. Excel does not consider
these valid characters and so gives an error when it attempts to
autosave (but oddly, obviously can open files with such a name OK).
It seems odd to me that IE creates a filename that Excel says is
invalid. Is there a solution to this (other than disablin...Find nth instance of a character in a string
I'm sure I've done this in the past but for the life of me I can't remember
Say I have a string "http://www.theexceladdict.com/tutorials.htm" in cell
A1. I want to determine the position of the last "/" (forward slash). The
strings won't always contain the same # of "/"s.
I need to be able to do this as a formula and also in VBA code.
I appreciate your help.

I have MS Money on two machines, exact same copy of 2004 Business
Edition. Machine 1 is a backup of Machine 2. Each incident contains
2 separate accounts, one business, one personal.
Suddenly, on machine number 2, I can no longer log in to my personal
account via my *hotmail.com account. On machine 1 it works fine, but
machine 2 it rejects my login stating that the password is invalid.
I logged in to the hotmail account with the password via IE on machine
2 just fine (sanity check). I then restored the .mny file on machine
2 with a different *mny name from machine 1. Same problem.

constructed using Access. Not really sure how we would answer that. You
would have to know who purchased the first copy of Access and what they did
with it. More details might help us out.

I've written a little network utility. Now I found it it useful to be
an IE plugin. It's not a real plugin since it still runs outside IE as
a separate EXE. I've managed to create a menu entry and toolbar button
for it. When I click it the program is launched. I also found how to
enumerate all running instances of IE When the program is launched it
becomes the topmost window but I need to know which was on top before
because from that instance I need to read the current URL. Or is it
easier to write a real plugin which runs inside IE. I would prefer

Thanks in advance for your reaction
You can't change the default index column, which in this case is the lead's
name, but you can add a column to the view for the company name. This way you
would get both the lead name and the company name. Go to Home > System
Settings > Customization > Leads.
