How do I perform operations within a funtion that operates on colu

I am trying to calculate the % of people under a certain age.  In the 
COUNTIF() funtion, how do I calculate the age and then compare it to the 
chosen value?
e.x.  =COUNTIF(A1:A3,(calculate age) <=60)

Business Contact Manager, performance sacrifices?
I'm hoping we can all learn a little about Business Contact Manager... After some initial difficulties that were resolved by 1.5 hours with Microsoft and some great ideas from Patricia Cardoza's new book, I've got Business Contact Manager running smoothly. That's a good thing because I provide support and training in Outlook to clients and want to be able to recommend this new add-on. But is it ready to recommend? Here are two things that seriously bother me: my contacts take so much longer to load and sort. Searching from the "Find a Contact" box formerly t...

KB for Performance Optimizer trouble
In the process of moving EDB files from a crashed server to a new server built with same name, etc, but different platform (from NT to W2K Sp4) I found the Performance Optimizer would not allow me to move files to different volumes.

After having the MS rep hold the line while I was scouring google and retrying the process to get the ...

Workflow email: Lead converted within 24 hours
Hi, I'm having trouble figuring out how to make a timed workflow email based on whether a condition's been satisfied or not. I've tried tips from the "Using MS CRM" book as well as searches within this group. Here's what I'm going for and my progress: We need an email to be sent out when a Lead isn't converted within 24 hours of an Owner receiving it. I think 24 hours after creation would be acceptable to start with, but Ownership would be even better. The closest I can come is a workflow that says: When Lead Status is Changed Wait for 1 day after Le...

questionable operation
I have a user with an installation of Windows 2000, Office 2000 with all the latest service packs. Opening Excel first and then opening a .XLS file works as designed. Opening anything else, either from a shortcut or the actual file ends up with not only that file open but a 'Book1' file open as well. Also being opened this way if any change is made to the original file and an attempt to Exit (not just close the file) is asks the usual "Do you want to save changes" message...but then it does not close the file. Both 'Book1' and the original file remain open. ...

query performance inconsistence
I put a query on two seperate query windows and both connect to the same SQL server. I ran it individually. One is running less than 3 secs and the other one is taking > 20 secs. The execution plan is a bit different. The obvious different one in the execution plan is that the one that is running faster is using parallism. The confusion part for me is that it is the same query running on the same server but on two different connections. Can this be possible? I am very puzzled.

Serialization performance
We're seeing long load (and save) times when serializing MFC object collections. As an example, a 6MB file is taking 30secs to load on a fast machine and we're wondering what sort of tricks were available to optimize this. Details are below. We're using an MFC typed ptr array, declared inside our collection class as shown below. >>> template<class T> class CMyCollection { public: CTypedPtrArray <CObArray, T*> array; }; <<< To load the collection, we're calling the Serialize method of the typed ptr array as shown below....
