GAL displayed fields

Is there a way to sync fields defined in ADUC (eg. General, Address, and 
Telephones Tab info) with the applicable fields in the GAL without entering 
it in both places separately?  TIA.

Not sure how you can enter stuff in the GAL - it's nothing but a filtered 
view of data in AD that's displayed/modified using ADUC and other such 
tools. If you change it in ADUC, you will see the change when you view the 
GAL. There may be some replication latency when you have multiple DCs or a 
distributed environment with multiple Sites.

Thanks.  I think that a couple of the fields that were populated in ADUC, 
that I was looking for aren't part of that filtered view.  I guess I would 
have to modify the Details/User Template to see them.  Thanks again.

That's right - for fields not displayed in the default template(s), you'd 
need to modify the template(s).

Pivot Tables

Excel to SQL ODBC link: not working when new field added
Hi all, I use Excel 2007, and have some Excel files with ODBC link to tables on a Microsoft SQL Server (2005 version). If I change the number of records in the tables in sql and then refresh the ODBC link, everything works fine. However, if I add a field in SQL and then refresh in Excel, the new field won't show up. Do you have any idea why, and how I could fix it? Thanks! Assuming that your external data is linked using MS Query, you'll need to edit the query to add any new fields added in SQL.

GAL? What GAL?
In the beginning, there was an user who opened his Outlook, tried to log on to the new Exchange 2003 server, and was promptly rejected with a message saying that his name couldn't be found in the users list.

The company was implementing a Windows 2003 domain, with its DCs/DNSs and the clients using them. The company's ISP sold them a firewall which, even if fully opened, interacted really badly with Microsoft's DNS service: the...

Avoiding Updates After Displaying Menus
I have an MDI app whose MDI child windows are graphics windows that display images. These images can be fairly complex, and redrawing them may take time. More to the point, there are occasionally ephemeral message 'boxes' that I display within these images that aren't drawn as part of the main imaging code, and go away when the image is next refreshed. Okay, so, I click on a menu item in the menu bar and the menu comes down and I select something. I now get a WM_PAINT event in my window, causing a redraw. This has two unfortunate effects: one is to slow things down while I ...
