Windows XP Home Install
I want to know if "Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition UPGRADE with SP2" CD is
just upgrade to an existing XP home install or XP full install with SP2?
The CD box has even the product key.
The reason I'm trying to figure out is I just purchased a new motherboard
and my old XP CD gives a blue screen with Stop error when I try to install
I called the motherboard support and was told that its compatible only with
XP w/SP2 at least. My old XP CD doesn't have SP2.
The Upgrade CD cannot do what you want it to do.

Please advise how this might be done if it is possible.

You'll need to provide a lot more information than that! A database can
contain hundreds of tables; do you want it to open every table at the "last
used"? What constitutes "used" - last entered, last edited, last viewed
onscreen? What are you actually trying to accomplish with this?

The second sheet, "Names" in the book contains a single column - A -
of 7,500 names.
I want to get the value from the second sheet that matches the number
column of the first sheet. In other words, if "Main" cell B3 contains
3780, I want to put the value from "Names" cell A3780 into "Main" C3.
How do I do this please?

I have one spreadsheet where I am trying to use CONCATENATE to combine
some text and a number.
The cell T6 contains "AT COST X "
The cell S7 contains a number 1.18

I recently purchased a HP pocket PC and it apparently has to use MS Outlook

someone, all the text including the original message, is sent using the
wingding font. How can I fix this?
Does anyone know how to create or change category GROUPS?
Not cateagories but the groups in which they are assigned.

...'The messaging interface has returned an unknown error-if the problem persists, restart Outlook'
I am running Outlook 2002, SP-2, under Windows XP Home edition, SP-1. I use
MS Word as my message editor.
For the past few months, I get the following error message in a dialog from
'The messaging interface has returned an unknown error-if the problem
persists, restart Outlook'
This occurs when I either create a new message or note or edit an existing
message or note and then leave it open for more than just a minute or two,
rather than closing or saving and closing it.

Need help with displaying blank cells when formulas are
inside. The formulas would display a value if the
contents of a source cell is filled in. I'm attempting to
use in the formula cells(like B2):
If A2 is null, then display blank in B2, else calculate A2
Is this the best approach to keeping formula cells clear
until data is entered?
For everyone's benefit keep the discussion in the newsgroup.

I inserted a column in a data table for expiration date. While writing a

column (field) and moved it where I wanted it on the data table?
I deleted all extraneous column/fields, so I don't have an empty field to
utilize. Must I create a new database or is there a way to identify this new
column as a data field?

I have not tried other POS systems, but if you want to know weather it's easy
