Entourage X database retrieval HELP!


I've read other postings of this issue, but no resolution, nor a final
answer for what is/is not possible when it comes to data retrieval.

My Entourage X crashed and will not allow a rebuild (no space on disk)
because 3.92 GB of memory were used out of 4 GB.  I had received
notice of this in the few days leading up to it and promptly deleted
large attached files and other large files.  When I continued to get
the message, I tried the basic rebuild and it failed because of no
available space.  I cannot open my Entourage as it insists that I
rebuild and crashes.  How can I reclaim my database?

Mac G5
OSX 10.4.11
Entourage X



I ran the Disk Utility and it seems that there is a problem with one
of two hard drives.  I don't think that has any bearing upon this
issue though.

You can buy another drive and install the OS and Office X on it to recover.
I suggest a 500GB drive. I do recovery for clients. If you are interested in
my services contact me off list.

Retrieve File Names in Directories
Can anyone tell me how or if it is possible to start at a particular directory and drill down to all subdirectories and get the names of files and the associated paths of each?

Conditional number format of x-axis based on value?
With Excel 2007, I was wondering if it is possible to conditionally format the x-axis number format in the chart based on multiple criteria. I know I can do it for a value >x or < the y. But I need to do it for ranges of values. Essentially I want to have any value <1 and > -1 formatted as a % value, any value >1 and <500 or <-1 and >-500 formatted as a number with two decimal places, and any number >500 or <-500 formatted as a number with no decimal places.

how to retrieve sender email address
anybody knows how to retrieve the sender email address from the outlook object model. when using outlook object model from inside vb, the model exposes the 'Sendername' property only, which is the name that the sender opts to be get displayed at the recipients end. Except for Outlook 2003 you don't have that in the Outlook object model. You can get it using CDO 1.21 code but in secure versions of Outlook the code will fire the security prompts.

Entourage settings
Is newest version of Office written in Cocoa yet? And I have tried using both Entourage and Mail at the same time if that is advisable or not I'm not sure.
