...Where's the Sort by New Message option?
Not sure when the layout of the newsgroups changed but I can't seem to find the ability to sort by new message in a thread instead of sorting by just the original thread date.
That was hugely helpful as I could follow along and see what threads were still active.
If you're gonna hang around in the newsgroups (any newsgroups), you may want to
start using a newsreader.

I'm using MS Money 2004 Small Business. In the account list, my accounts
are catagorized by and in this order:
- bank accounts
- credit accounts
- investment accounts
- loans and liabilities
- asset accounts
In the above view, I cannot easily determine totals for assets and
liabilities. The following view does this.
- bank accounts
- investment accounts
- asset accounts
-loans and liabilities
How do I get the above view?

I am trying to add a trendline to a process variable on a line-chart and use
it to predict when remedial action is required. When the data parameter is
reset, the trendline automatically takes in this new set of figures and
attaches it to the previous, giving a totally skewed analysis. Is there any
way that I can select only some of the data to trend? Then as the reset data
grows, only to select the new series from the process?

But if I sort the rows in Sheet1 the links from Sheet2 back to corresponding rows in Sheet1 lead to presorted locations. Apparen...sorts not sorting

To perform a line projection, first click on the series the you would like to
forecast. Go to Chart -> Add Trendline. The "options" tab will allow you to
project the trend forward. You will probably want to use the "linear"
option. It can also provide an equation which would allow you to manually
calculate a future projection as opposed to using the trendline.

I assume you mean "Is it".
The form sort order has nothing to do with editing or adding new
records, so the answer is yes.
If you cannot edit or add new records, make sure the form's record
source, if it is a query, is updateable. Some queries are not.
