#### Calculating hours #2

Hi - I'm still have problems with totalling a column of hours. eg 1.5 hours
per day for 22 days should total 33hrs, however the total shown on the
spreadsheet is 9hrs. Note: 22+9=33. I am using Custom hh:mm. What am I doing
wrong?

Thanks - Dave

I'm using custom hh:mm not [hh]:mm. I can't find custom [hh]:mm in my list.
BTW I'm using Excel 2002 fully up-to-date.

You have to manually type in [hh]:mm in the custom box or else it wont work
do format>cells>number>custom and in the type box type [hh]:mm over whatever
is there.

NDR in 2 Exchange Servers 2003 on 2 domains
Hi, 2 Exchange servers 2003. 2 domains. a.fr and b.fr. The Active Directory domain is xxx.local. Each domain is hosted on a distinct server, on the same Exchange organization.

It is possible to change the NDR originator to postmaster@a.fr or postmaster@b.fr. But this is valid for the whole organisation.
