Pivot Table Reversing
I have a Pivot Table that someone has created for me, which lists some data chronologically by month which has the earliest months at the left, and latest at the right. Is there any way I can reverse the order so that the latest data is at the right? I am fairly Excel conversant, although I have never dablled with Pivot Tables before, also, I know some VBA so a solution along those lines wouldn't bother me either. You could try a descending sort on the pivot table field concerned. "Neil" <> wrote in message news:C01E2FB1-6B0C-41E1-BC2E...

How to recover data from OL2003 OST file when Exchange Server is no longer available
Hello After Exchange Server (in Windows Small Business Server 2003) is no longer available, I still have an OST file (created in OL 2003), just under 2 GB in size. Can one recover the data from this OST file? Thanks, David Yes, you can get the data out of it.

Show a blank result in a cell when there is no value in the "Lookup" cell
I apologize if this question has been asked, but I have been unable to find an answer searching the topics. I'm using the following formula in cell C3: =INDEX(LastName,MATCH(A3,EmpID,0)) When I type in an employee ID in A3, his/her last name shows in C3. However, when there is no value in A3, C3 shows error "#N/A". Is there a way to show a blank cell in C3 until a value is entered into A3? Thanks in advance!

Word Table to Access
Hi, I was wondering if expert can give me some lite to convert my word table into access database. Note: within each cell of my word table(s), some has multi-line data in it. In addition, there is one row containing picture(s) as well. So far, what I did is doing it manually for each word docs I have. Select Table Convert Table to Text(I use ^ character for delimiter) Save it to a text file(with char substitution, and CR/LF) Then, Load them to Access DB. Is there an easier way to do this?

getting more columns and data onto one page in Crystal
Hello: Since you can only place so much data onto a "piece of paper", likely the answer is "no". But, even after choosing "Landscape" in Crytal (10.0), there's not a way of getting as many columns of data onto a report as I want--is there? Ideally, I'd like to get 14 columns on there but am running out of room on the right. Also, I have placed a cross-tab on my report that prints on multiple pages instead of just one. Of course, since the cross-tab has 83 rows of data, my guess is that there is nothing that I can do about this either. Is there? ...

Results show as a minus. WHY?

Linking Sharepoint data to Visio
Hello, I am looking into the Database possibilities of Visio Professional 2007. I managed to connect Sharepoint to Visio, but only in one way. So Sharepoint is leading and Visio follows. Is there a way to make the connection two ways, so that is Visio is changed, Shairepoint will follow ? Thanks, Arnold I'm going to assume that you have linked data to sharepoint via datarecordsets. Data recordsets can roundtrip information but it has to be done with custom code. Data recordsets can be read/updated in the document using xml. The export then has to be coded based upon the target yo...

show comments when cell is highlighted Vs when cursor runs over? #2
How do you make the comments appear when the cell is highlighted opposed to when the mouse cursor runs over the cell? You can press Shift/F2, or Insert/Edit Comment.
