...Problem inserting calculated pivot fields into Pivot Table (2007)
Working with Excel 2007 and a Pivot Table. Created a Calculated field. The
field shows in the Field List, but Excel will not let me drag the Calculated
field into the Pivot Table areas (other than into the Values area).
What am I doing wrong?
A calculated item or field, can ONLY be allocated to the data area.
It's position within the data area can be modified, but it cannot be
moved to any other area

I have come across a problem using pivot tables.
After creating the pivot table I select a filter drop down
but it will not let me edit any of the checkboxes.
I have tried numerous spreadsheets and even re-installed
excel to no avail.
I have search the web and can find no reference to this problem.
There is no protection on the spreadsheet and on another
machine it works fine.
Has anyone seen this before and / or can suggest a solution.
How did you create the pivot table? Where is the source data?

I'm using Excel as the repository for some Oracle records I'm
following in testing our application. One row is the record in the
text file, next row is the record after being imported to the DB, next
row is after another process, etc. and so forth.
Each row (after the first) is added using the Import External Data
wizard, which usually works just fine. The problem is that sometimes,
when the row is "put" into the worksheet, it seems to push all the
rest of the rows way out to the right, so that what used to be in
column A is now in column BD. That's one more...Access 2003 Combo problem
I have an access form I have been using for four years without any
major problems. Part of the data entry requires a user to enter a
state two letter designation in three places. I am trying to modify
the form to use a combo box which displays the two letters of the
states and then allow the user to select the state.
I have established a table with the the state name in one field (30
characters long) and the two letter combination in the other field (2

Perhaps my previous message didn't explain clear enough itself. But I need
some help and would like to further explain the problem again.
My system with Windows XP Pro SP-2 was/is working perfectly except that it
won't boot into safe mode. The system is booting up smoothly in regular mode
but when I try to boot it into safe mode, then it loads some drivers and
started to reboot again and again until I choose to start windows in normal
This sounds strange as my understanding is that boot up problem normally due
to conflict of drivers, software and/or hardware. So if a mach...Customization problem
We are working on customizing Case records, and would like to add a Contacts
lookup field on the Case form.
Using the customization page, I have done just that, added the Contacts
field to the form. However, when you click the browse button on 'Contact' in
the form you get the error message: "Internet Explorer: unknown lookup
style - your properties xml is probably not set properly".
Furthermore, even if I remove the Contacts field from the form using the

...Exchange 2003 Email Addressing problems
Example: If I’m in Domain A and address an email note to someone in Domain B
that has the same user name only, domain suffix is completely different. The
Exchange server in A apparently looks at the email name and decides that
since it has an email name that matches in it’s directory it changes the
domain suffix to it’s own and the user in domain A receives the note. If the
user dose not exist in A and does exit in B then the mail will send to the
correct party (obviously).
Added note: I’m typing the full email address Example: email@example.com, I’m
