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

Excel Question. I simply want to convert a column of figures [each in
different cells] into a row with a similar number of cells. Must be simple,
but can't seem to find how to do it. Thanks for any replies, guys!!
Select the cells in the column you want to paste in the row. copy (control
C). Select the same number of cells in a row, click Edit > Paste Special.
Select transpose. Click ok.

I am trying to validate all cells in a row so the user can
not go to the next row with out having an entry in each
cell in the row.
If a cell is left blank, I would like an error message to
appear and the user returned to the row that wasn't fully
entered. We are doing this on a worksheet.
If it's possible at all, it would require a VBA macro. And it would
certainly not be very reliable.
Perhaps a better approach is to do all of your data validation when the file
is closed. But even that isn't very reliable.

It is possible to sort the data on a form and also be able to enter

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.
