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.

Hello, I have a user that cannot open Excel attachments from inside Outlook.
He gets a security message and is given an option to save the attachments or
cancel. He can open all other attachments without this warning appearing. I
checked his registry and he has .xls files in the exception that is posted
on the MS KB. He has Excel 2002 and Outlook 2002. His e-mail comes through
an Exchange server. I do not have special security settings in place for
this user. I cannot find anything else on Google or MS. Please help. Thank

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

- 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?

Each row in my summary table in Sheet1 is hyperlinked to a corresponding table in Sheet2 with additional details.
I need to move the rows in my summary table (Sheet1) and preserve the links to and from the details tables (Sheet2).
I found that I can move rows in Sheet1 with cut & insert and the hyperlinks are maintained. I can travel from a row in summary table (Sheet1) to details table (Sheet2) and back, even after the corresponding row (Sheet1) was moved.
But if I sort the rows in Sheet1 the links from Sheet2 back to corresponding rows in Sheet1 lead to presorted locations. Apparen...looking for Excel VBA work

Hi, I use Excel 97(version created in 1996) on windows 98. I am not a
computer expert and I need some perspective on how large I could eventually
make a file before it reaches it's limit and will not function anymore. I
use one file and only one workspace in that file. I will keep adding data in
cells and formulas in some cells to calculate entered data. My total file
size is 10,500KB so far. I have a bunch of numeric data entered from cell A1
to DZ1320. Then I have a number of formulas in cells from A1325 to P1460.
My formulas are basicly simple, average "this row"...Macro filter on query
I need to run 8 append and update queries using the same date range. I

Apply Filter action will not do what you seek.
Your queries must have a WHERE clause that refers in some way to the textbox
on the form where you've entered the Month value/data that you want to use
in the queries.

Someone showed me an if statement, which was not working. The cells to
which it referred were all formatted correctly (currency / accountancy) yet
the statement returned an error. I deleted the cells in the logical test
and re-entered them...I did not change the formatting, and this time it
worked. To the best of my knowledge currency signs, commas etc were not
entered manually but via cell formatting. Anyone met this before?
Perhaps you could post the formula in question.
