excel to get data from an access database
I need excel to get data from an access database similar to vlookup function
from an excel table.
In order to have only specific records copied to your Excel file, the query
needs to include selection criteria (and sort order if necessary). Otherwise,
all records get copied and you then need to create lookup formulas or use
filters to restrict the set of record.
If you are not familiar with Access queries, have someone who is create one
for you as a stored query object in the database file. You can then use the

the Microsoft Picture manager is working strangely.

Good Day All,
I am using Exchange server 200 and Outlook 2003 mail client. I have started
to experience with a single machine where all of a sudden reading emails
with attachments of any size, even 6k, slows greatly.
Just selecting the email item in the list takes at least 30 seconds before
the lower pane shows the body of the selected item. No other client has the
same problem even while this machine does. The problem seems to disappear at
some point and then returns.
The machine was connected to a 10Mbps switch so I changed to a 100Mbps

The customer wishes to upgrade to CRM 4.0 and Windows 2008, and remain on
