Add Lookup Fields to Entity
I need to add 4 "technical contact" fields (which would lookup the Contact
entity) to the CONTRACT form.
Is this possible? I've found it difficult to figure out what to do first.
Thanks in advance,
Not possible. You cant have multiple lookups for the same entity.
You also cannot create new relationships between two system entitites.
This will work in 4.0
Not possible, Pezman. N:M relationships are not possible in 3.0 yet.
There is a alternative solution: a new entity to act as an N:M relationship.
In your case, Contract/Contact. This entity has two 1:N relations...Opening new Excel window

In natural history, including museum records, it is commonplace to use a date
with lower case letters for the month, e.g. 19.x.2004 = 19th October 2004 or
01.iii.1999 = 1st March 1999. It would help users if this format were added
as a standard and could be converted.
For what it is worth...
If you add dates as text by preceeding the entry with a ' , for example,
'19/11/2004 and then apply the following formula
you will get 19.xi.2004 as the output.

That is the nickname cache. Search and delete the .nk2 file. That's the

In step two of the Pivot Wizard, you should be able to select a starting

then the Down or Right arrow key, to select a range of cells.
Or, base the pivot table on a dynamic range, which will expand

I'm trying to fill the area between 2 line graphs in excel. I need to

between the two lines. I tried using the "area" option in excel and while it
shaded the area between the line graphs, it did not allow me to add the extra
line in between.
The stacked area chart is used for the fill. For the three lines, add three
series of type Line. (Add them however they get added, which would be as
additional area series, then select each and use Chart menu > Chart Type to
convert to Line.)
