VLookup on multiple columns
I want to carry out a Vertical Lookup but the Lookup Value is contained
in 2 columns. Can this be done or would it be best to Concatenate the 2
columns into one?

When in the Bills Summary view and I sort on Account, not all of the line
items with the same account are grouped. Upon further review, it appears
that duplicate line items with the same Payee, Next Due, Amount, etc are
being created and not properly sorted by Account. When I resort based upon
Next Due, these duplicates go away and the line items are properly sorted by
Next Due (ascending or descending).
When i've seen this before, it can mean corruption in the file. Because you
can see those additional bills, you have the opportunity to delete these

i'm using activereports in RMS to generate a custome timecard report. for my

vbDate. when I generate the report, the columns only show the date as
mm/dd/yyyy, they do not show the time of day piece for exactly when the

Open the Office clipboard from the Edit menu, you will be able to collect 24
items. Be aware if your text boxes are linked you will not get the paste you
want. Break the link, all the text will be shifted to the first text box even
though you will not be able to see all of it. Create new text boxes in your new
publication, link them again.

I want to sort a list of numbers in excel but I want 1A to be in between 1 &
2. Hos do I do that? I tried setting up a custom list, but no luck.
To get the sort order you want all the items must be text. For example,
select A1:A3. Use Format, Cells and select Text as the number format.
Enter 1, 2, 1a in the cells and then click the Sort button on the Standard
toolbar. The order should sort to 1, 1a, 2.

I'm at a quandry as to what's the best/fastest way to deserialize an
incoming xml stream?
I ran a small test on xmlserializer and on a small file it performed 10
times worse then when I used the XMLDocument and deserialized the values
myself. Is the xmlserializer really that slow?
I'm expecting a file about 1 MB in length and if it's that slow on a 2 K
file then I can't phantom how it's going to behave on a 1 MB file.
Should I just skip the xmlserializer and XML Dom and go straight to
xmlreader and do the deserialization myself?
