Hello fellow Newsgroupies,
How can I completely erase a file from the hard disk not just 'delete'
I'm not an expert on this but I believe the basic approach is overwrite it
and then delete it.
In fact, it is sometimes possible to detect what a byte value on a hard
drive was before being overwritten by another value. So to really eliminate
all traces of a file, you would probably want to write alternating bit
patterns to a file several times before deleting it.

I have about 300 phone numbers in the standard UK format of 01603229920.
I wish to somehow turn 01603229920 into +441603229920, 300 times!
I've exported the outlook contacts to CSV, but there doesn't seem to be
an easy way of doing this. Search and replace is not an option I don't
think but I've had a crap day and might be missing something obvious.
If it always start with a zero and yopu want to replace that zero with +44

Author, Special Edition ...how to create relationship between Account and Contact relationshi
I'm writing an application that creates accounts in CRM 3.0
automatically using the web service. So far, so good. The problem I'm
having is programmatically assigning accounts to the contacts. If my
accounts are already created in CRM, I should just be able to grab their guid
and assign it to the contact using contact.parentcustomerid, right?
Well, if that's the case, what should the code look like? How do I
assign values to the type of Customer? If that's not right, can
someone point me in the right direction?

When I add a trendline, the chart name gets changed to "Chart Title." The
name can be seen in the Chart Objects drop box, if I scroll down enough. When

it still replaces the name to Chart Title. (The name on my charts just comes
from the data field that is above numerical data when I create the chart.)
I have a lot of charts to go through, >100, so any help in retaining the

My office just upgraded from Office XP to Office 2003.
I've noticed in Outlook, in Contacts, that some Contacts
that I have access to are listd under "My Contacts" but
others are listed under the "Other" section of Contacts.
Why is that?

MVP VC++ FAQ: http://www.mvps.org/...'Over-synchronising' CRM contacts to Outlook
I am the Administrator for around 130 users of CRM. Many of our users deal
with the same contacts in CRM (eg; 1 contact record can have multiple
contacts within our department). To show this in CRM, we have created a
customized entity (linked to a contact) which allows multiple
"owners/contacts" of a record. We have also modified the System View of My
Contacts to show contact records which have a Business Contact of the current
user. (eg; if you assign yourself via the customized entity which is linked
to the contact, the contact details are listed on the My Contacts view)....
