Pivot Table row comparison
I'm trying to compare an old customer schedule with their new schedule
and highlight the changes with colour or by hiding a row. My pivot
table looks like this
Prod Sched wk1 wk2 wk3
A old 3 2 3
A new 3 4 3
B old 2 2 2
B new 2 2 2
So in the above example I'd like to colour the cells for wk2- Product A
in yellow, and hide the product B rows as there has been no change in
Can someone give me some advice about how to do this
Thanks for your help
How about an alternative???
Your raw data looks kind of like this:

I am using Access 2003 and have a report I did a while back with a simple
subreport. I want to remove the subreport but for the life of me can't figure
out how to do it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
When you say "remove the sub report", what do you mean? Do you want to
delete the entire subreport control containing the subreport, or do you want
to keep the control, but change the report contained in it?
The first is easy - select the control by clicking once on it once, then

told about. But I have confirmed that the missing person has email in her
deleted items folder going back to 2005 so it must be working. Is there any
other location I should be looking? Also, we just had someone come in and

Any help will be appreciated.

I have a column where I list pending cases each month and I need to show the
last number in the total pending cell at the bottom of the row. I can use an

not able to get it to work if the pending cases begin in rows 4 or 5 as an

I am about to roll out Exchange 2003 SP2 in a fresh environment, and was
curious about what the 75GB limits on the databases encompasses.
Since Exchange 2003 Standard supports up to four databases, does this mean I
can have four individual 75 GB databases running under Exchange 2003
Standard, or does it mean the total of all four databases can't exceed 75
GB, therefore requiring Exchange 2003 Enterprise?
Not sure where you obtained that information from - Exchange Server 2003
Standard does not support 4 databases.
You can have 2 - one Mailbox Store and one Public Folder Store.

You could (temporarily???) change your windows list separator:

Or you could use a macro. You could borrow some code from one of these sites:
