I've had transactions that I've placed in my register with detailed info in
the memo area only to have the same exact transaction download with no info
and unrecognized as the same transaction. Traditionally I've copied and
pasted the info into the downloaded transaction and then deleted my
transaction. This is a real PAIN... Is there a way to tell Money that these
two separate transactions are the SAME transaction and then have it merge
It works exactly as intended when Money recognizes the transaction that's
already in the register and then merges them beautiful...Centering graphics

Any help appreciated.

How are you checking for the leading 0's?
Are you opening the .csv file in NotePad?

Are there any guidelines or outline for what tables you need to look at to

It is a project and a half. I got approval from a major client yesterday to

I understand that MS Professional Services will do this project for you. In

paltry information to the activity and not showing what document was sent is
a problem many have asked about.

for an Update query using the DateValue() function to convert the text to a

Is this just me or is it a common problem:
I have some text in a cell. The cell is merged along a row with the adjacent

Is there anything I can do, apart for manually adjust the row height?

Yet if I go on the individual cell, an exclamation mark

Is there some way I can select all the values and change
the formatting en masse.

I am experiencing rather an annoying problem with outlook 2000 and Win2K
Here is what I'm doing in step-by-step form.
View an e-mail in outlook 2000, highlight some text in this e-mail, using
either the keyboard shortcut CTRL+C or right mouse to copy the text.
Open a new email message , try to paste the copied text - nothing is
available to paste.
If I open notepad or Word, the text can be pasted . It's only Outlook which
has the problem.
The work around is to open the new email first then go to the email with the
text required to copy and go thru the procedure like that.
