Calculation Times in Excel XP vs. Excel 2003 and 2007
This is a strange one. I have an Excel workbook that was created in
Excel XP. It has 4 total sheets -- 2 with data that's calculated, and
2 that are just for data lookups. Most of the functions employed are
standard... included in Excel's library. It also uses 2 custom
functions written in VBA running some higher level mathematical

...Exchange 2003 full computer name doesn't match domain name.
I'm running a Windows 2000 SP4 DC network with a single Exchange 2003 SP2

For some reason the full computer name of the exchange server

Using the Activities tab, I often will review or search for email for a

contacts that I know I have dozens for. All my contacts exhibit the same
deficit. I can find these missing messages by searching in the individual
folders, so I know that they exist.
This resembles a missing or broken index problem. Is there any way to
re-index my message file?
Any ideas of how to solve this problem?

We have some synchronization problems with some of our laptop users that
have just switched to Outlook 2003. In looking at the differences in the
number of items on the server and the number of items stored locally, in some
cases there is a large discrepency. For example, in my Deleted Items folder
locally I have a few hundred items, but in the server there is close to
100,000! Obviously this has been going on for some time.
Anyway, I went to the server to look at the Deleted Items folder in the M
drive, and sure enough, there is close to 100,000 items in there. So I tr...xp locks up with great plains 6.0
Has anyone experiences great plains locking up with windows xp sp2.
Everything else works except when I go to print the program locks up. when I
first get into great plains I can print for a while. If I am on great plains
for a while without printing. Then when I go to print it locks up.
I then have to have someone boot me off the great plains system.
This only occurs in Great Plains.

The *.pst only includes Personal Folder data (any emails or folders you had

Looks like my current hard drive has failed as when I try to boot, the load

I had previous problems in trying to boot Windows and the only way to get
past that problem was to boot from the installation disc and do a repair
install. That got the computer booting OK. I did a scan of the hard drive
and there were a few errors that could not be fixed and subsequently have got
to the stage that looks like there is a hard drive failure. This hard drive
does still sound OK, no noises coming from it.
