question on os authenticity
I purchased a laptop with Windows 2000 preinstalled from a dealer who claims
to be a Microsoft Authorized Refurbisher. There was no COA attached to the
body of the computer and he claims that he was not required to because he
owns the license to it, not me. Is this correct?
Good question but not for this community. You need to post your question in a
Windows community. But, I think he's wrong and you should call Microsoft
directly to ask them. You can find their phone number by going to

I used to be able to scan with Windows Defender in a few minutes. Now it
takes hours. What's up with that?
Is the quick scan or a full scan running?

Hi, Being a developer I thought I would go to the source! Sorry if this is
a sort of sales question.
Do you think the Service module would cater for a Web Design Company job
We currently use a SharePoint service to do this but like the looks of
Core parts of the system should;
1. Jobs Description
2. Time & Cost Management
3. Job Status (New, Awaiting Customer, etc)
5. Task logging etc
6. Maintenance Contracts (Ie Pay $x up front and service times deducted
Do you think Dynamics can handle this and would I need to mod it?
I have a form ... frmExhibitor and from that form I can open frmAccounting
displaying only the data the pertains to the exhibitor selected in
frmExhibitor. However, I would like to have an if that states if there is
data for frmAccounting open to that data, if not then open a new form. How
would I do this?
The OpenForm method has a "Where" argument.
frmExhibitor should have a key unique identifier, the value of which,
pertains to just that record and no others. Example would be CustID.
So, when opening frmAccounting use the Where argument...

I'm preparing to start my "swing" migration from E2K to E2K3.
Because students will be back in a week, I'd like to get the

actual migration (first E2K3 server install) for about a month.
In reading what I can find on the E2K to E2K3 migration it appears that
running ForestPrep and DomainPrep in my site won't cause me any problems
except that ForestPrep will lock down Top level PF creation (which is already
locked down) and likely remove the permissions I have added for 'backup...service pack upgrade question

I am trying to use VLOOKUP to populate a cell in an invoice.
It looks to a second page with the prices, and they are designated by a #

then the values I want returned are in column D.
My formula is =VLOOKUP(B11,Prices!B4:D82,3) where I enter say 1A into B11
then it should find 1A in the range and return the value from the 3rd column
in the same row as the value 1A.
Problem is, it works on some and brings up the wrong value on others. I am

It depends upon the company selling graph/chart control. You will need to

you got when you purchased the control.

I am in the process of moving from an Exchange 2000 server to 2003.
The 2003 server is up and running and part of my clients are on the new box.

need MDI to keep all windows organized.

After applying Exchange 2003 SP1 to one of our gateway servers, I
observe 24 hours later that there are no messages in BadMail. Not
usually something I'd complain about, but it is unusual.
Prior to applying the service pack, I cleaned up this directory. There
were almost half million entries there, testimony to the fact that we
ordinarily get a thousand BadMail entries a day typically. The
directory was so large that I had to use command line del *.* to
accomplish the task. The directory itself appears to be fine and I can
create files there without problem.
