Scripting AD, import/export Contacts
I need to be able to sync my SQL server with my AD contacts.
The method I thought I might use was to write a file from SQL server and
then use a scripting language to import that to AD.
I'd need to create new contacts and update existing ones..
I had a look at a couple of examples but I couldn't quite figure out the
real meaning of them.
Could anybody point me in the right direction, maybe with yes, another
or any other workable suggestions would be much appreciated.
once I wrote the script below to export email addresses from AD.

I have a worksheet that I wish to protect so that certain cells with
formulas cannot be changed. I have formatted the cells I wish to protect so
that they are locked when the sheet is protected.
However, if I then wish to edit one of the unprotected cells, rather than
allow me to simply change what I had previously entered, as soon as I
double-click on the cell to edit the previously entered data, the cell

Here are the examples about the problem which I am facing.
The original value in the cell: 4/23/04
Formatted cell(DD/MM/YYYY): 23/04/2004 (In this case, the value is
Expected: the value and the outlook are also "23/04/2004"
The original value in the cell: 4.332
Formatted cell(truncate with 2 digits): 4.33
What I am now going to do is changing the value of cells with new
format because a new system of my computer need to extract the value
from the excel with specified format. But changing the format in excel
doesn't really change the value of the cell. ...Adding or removing rows
I have got a macro that I use for adding and deleting rows while sheet is
protected (Gord Dibben helped me with, and is working well). I do have one
thing that may be a problem and that is there are certain rows I dont want to
be changed. These are the last row of each section and have the sub totals.
The problem is that if one of these rows get deleted by misstake it will
upset the final total at end of the sheet.
Is there anyway to stop these from being upset and protected.

i am researching about APIs to update file to MySpace. Anyone know this, pls
share me. Thanks
It is most likely that this involves a TCP/IP protocol. That is, you open a connection to
MySpace to a specified port, and then engage in some transfer of information back and
forth to establish credentials, file name, etc., then send the video using a specified
protocol. That's what I woud guess; the question is whether or not this interface is
"open" (documented) or "proprietary" (undocumented). So that's what I'd be looking for;

You don't Money mention version/edition. That might be vitally important
here, now that Microsoft has balkanized the product.
The general answer for all but M07 Money Essentials (MEss) is to create an
"Investment Account" for each IRA and/or 401(k). You can define these
specific types of Investment Account and Money will treat it more or less
correctly from a tax estimating and reporting perspective right up until the

...New Hard Drive vs. New Computer
My husband's computer is getting various error messages and our computer man
said he needs either a new hard drive or a new computer. He currently has a
Toshiba laptop, bought in 2001, updated to WinXP (it had Win98). He
doesn't need a laptop; it was passed on by another family member, it uses a
docking station. I'm still using WinXP myself (no desire to go to Windows
7), and I'd just as soon keep his with WinXP, which would mean a new hard
drive rather than a new computer. Any advice/suggestions?

...KB articles do not save correctly after adding section to template
I created a template, used it to create an article, and published the article.
Then I realized I needed another section at the beginning of articles like
this, so I changed the template to include the new first section (keeping all
the other sections).
I unpublished the article, edited it to include appropriate content under
the new first section, and saved it.
Instead of the new content being saved under the first heading, it was saved
under the second heading, and all the content in each subsequent heading was
bumped down one. The content from the last section was lost.
