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
Data>Import (Get) External Data and choose the query as your record sour...when i open an attachment it just shows a box i cannot open
Attachment, whether docs or pictures won't open. I can preview them inside
the window pane, but then have to copy to word doc to print. Should be able
to open attachment and then print just from there. Please help. It's like
the Microsoft Picture manager is working strangely.

I have recorded an audio file using Word Notebook. I would like to

Are your co-workers using Word 2004? Only Word 2004 can open documents in
Notebook Layout view and use the special features like audio, I think.
However, you could use Tools | Audio Notes | Export audio to get just the
audio file out, I think it comes out as an .mp4
Then send that around, it should be a standard format that most any audio
program can play, far as I know.

...Email with tiny attachments open slow
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
switch and Event logs reveal nothing.
