I have a small doubt could you clarify that???
That is I find duplicate name but I want to delete one name only, if I
filter DUPLICATE….. both names are showing…
1. Select the range of data including the header. You need to have headers
for these columns
2. From menu Data>Filter>Advanced Filter>Copy to another location
3. In 'copy to' specify the target cell and check 'Unique records only'
4. Click OK will give you the unique list

Enter numbers using the minus symbol, but format your cells: Format => Cells
=> Number [tab] and in the Type box, enter "#,##0.00_ ;[Red](#,##0.00) "
(without the quotation marks).

I have a list of names and I would like to check whether I have any
d-plicates in a column rather than checking by eye.
If anyone knows how to do this please - then I would be very grateful
if someone post a solution.

...Add space after each numbered or bulleted item
I need to make rather long lists of paragraphs that are several lines long.
The numbered list feature forces a new number and a new line upon hitting
enter. this is expected behavior. However, I need a space between the items
to make each item stand out. In Word if I hit enter again, a new number is
issued as expected. However if I arrow up to the first empty space and hit
the backspace, the number will be removed, the following number will be
changed to next sequential number and the empty line remain. Publisher,
however insists on starting a new number sequence. Is there any way to

I'm trying to write a query that will return a median for various

Has any functionality been added to 2003 for this? Or is there a non-

open the query, sort it, find the total number of records, divide it
in half, then seek out the middle record using that value. I'm still

Running Exchange 2003.
An user had some messages bounced back. Just to see if I saw anything
relevant, I went into Message Tracking and pulled up all the messages that
day by leaving the various fields (except for date and server) blank. Not
all the messages that the user had sent was showing up.
Anyone have any ideas why Message Tracking wasn't tracking all the messages?
Perhaps the user sent via a different (non-Exchange) SMTP server?
