Writing data from excel to sql-server
I would like to write the values of A1 and B1 to a SQL-Server table every 10
seconds. How can I do this ?
Svein Olav Steinmo
There's only two ways I know of to do this. 1.) You have
to create a link to the EXCEL sheet in question using MS
SQL Enterprise Manager. Then create a scheduled job to
run an SQL statement to update the SQL table. Note:
Changes to the EXCEL file will update automatically
through SQL link. 2.) Create an Access DB with links to
the respective tables and worksheets. Create a PASS
THROUGH query that updates the SQL table using the EXCEL

If the pages are well-formed XHTML then it is possible to use XmlReader
(in .NET 2.0/3.0) or XmlTextReader (in .NET 1.x) to parse the XHTML
documents. You can also use the other XML APIs .NET provides so using

I installed vs2005 on a new xp pro machine, and installed everything
except C++. When I click on a file with a ".xml" extension it is
opened with IE. When I click file/Edit with XML Editor, it opens it
with Notepad. If I click File/Open With and select XML Editor, it
opens it with IE. So, where is the xml editor?
Can it be invoked from withing VS? Where?

XL isn't a word processor - there's no built-in functionality for

In theory it could be done with event macros, but if you're looking for

You can use formulas for this type of thing if you want this done only
once. But if this is a repeating task I would suggest an event macro. If
you want to use an event macro you will have to decide when you want this

I want to copy an excel chart into powerpoint. It is a simple column chart.
However the columns contain a color gradient. When I copy the chart to the

other computers using the same excel version (2003).
There are about 30 ways to copy and paste charts from Excel into PowerPoint.
The problem you are describing is not one I have heard of - namely that it
works on one machine but not another. However, you could try a different
method of copying. For example - you can use the Camera tool to copy a

Client just moved from SP1 to SP2 on v9 Dynamics GP. Also using Excel 2003.
Complaint is that while on SP1, they could export from SmartList to Excel;
with Excel adding workbooks to the current Excel instance. Through the
toolbar window, they could easily flip through workbooks (they have several
various exports throughout their daily routine).
However, now with SP2, each export will open a new instance of Excel. This
results in several Excel programs open at the bottom of the screen, with each
containing only one workbook.
