I have been trying to set up a folder to share on my home network. I go
through the procedure and click done, but the folder does not show up as
being shared. (I do not get the little icon on the folder). When I try to
see it from the other computer it is not there. The printers are all there,
and the windows preset folder are there. I disabled password and made sure
that file and print sharing were enabled.
The only computer I am having the problem with is the VISTA computer. The XP
and Win7 work fine.
Where am I going wrong?
Thanks in advance
"Chris...Best way to format a flat file that Excel will load properly?
I'm generating a flat file in Outlook VBA. Right now I'm able to save it as a
..txt file, although I hope to save it in a delimited flat file format with an
..xls extension so it will automatically be opened by excel without having to
go through the whole 'import' sequence.
There are string fields in the file, some of which contain commas- so I
can't make it a comma delimited file.
What is the best delimiter to use so that Excel will automatically recognize
and parse the flat file contents across columns?

We use Great Plains accounting software to generate checks etc. We want to
explore the feature if Great plains can read a fixed format file and write
into a file.
We are trying to look into this possibility because we want this application
to share data and interface with another application written in powerbuilder.
Thanks and Regards,
Using Integration Manager or eConnect, Great Plains can read from a fixed
file. Using eConnect, SmartList, or some other tool Great Plains can export
to a file.
eConnect may be the best bet if you already have developers.

Most ghraphs need to show the base. Is there a simple way to add that in or

You can use the x or y axis titles if not already being used.
Make sure the chart is active when adding textboxes other wise the textbox
will not be embedded within the chart object.
