general consensus is to not touch the M:\ drive - pretend it does not
exist...don't virusscan it, don't back it up, do not touch it...

Susan is right.  The reason for this is it can possible corrupt your
database or cause other strange issues.  In E2k3 the M drive is hidden by

is there a way to turn off the display of an error message
i have a workbook setup that have several pages in it (for a month) and some math where a cell that may not be filled in yet is a 0 value. so i am getting lots of divide by zero errors. it certainly is useful to know but detracts from the appearance. can this selectively be turned off? thanks. jim Hi Jim! There's different ways of approaching this. Try amending the formulas that resolve to the error: Example =IF(B1=0,"",A1/B1) This returns an empty looking cell until a numeric entry is made to B1. But note that it will return #VALUE! if text is input to B1. This is ...

I feel like an idiot (but I'm not, really!)
This will probably be a most stupid question. I've been using Money/Quicken for years but I've just started using the reports and planning. On income and spending reports, for example I am getting my expenses inflated when I use a charge card. Here's an example. I get my car repaired for $100 and pay for it with my credit card. I then enter that transaction as a car repair that cost $100. I then pay via checking account, $100 to the credit card company. So now it looks like I've paid $200 and my auto expense for the time period was $200. What in the heck am I overlo...

Second, Outlook Express is considered to be a Windows component. You can make it inaccess...
