You don't need those outside ()'s, but that won't matter.
My guess is that you don't have an exact match in List!A1:A404 for the value in

Excel spreadsheets for calculations and tables. I've got it all

worksheet which is where I do most of my work, the document really just

When I go to open a file stored on the network "Network" is not listed by
default as a place to find and open Excel files in Excel 2007.
This is as moronic as the ribbon of abomination.
Yes, I can find out how to add "Network" as a default choice but it should
be their to begin with.
That, and the fact that Excel 2007 does not recognize conditional formatting
in spreadsheets created in Excel 2003 converted to to the ".xls" format make
it clear that the same geniuses who programmed Vista programmed Office 2007.

If I am positioned on a new record (not yet saved) and I open a popup form
and then in the code for this form, I modify a bound field on my original
form and then close the popup form, does this trigger the 'before update'
event on the original form? This is what seems to be happening. I don't want
this event to trigger until I save the record or move to another record.
It seems that I have to postpone modifying the bound field until the 'before
update event'. This means that in the popup form, I have to save the value in
an unbound field and then move it to the bound...ListCtrl Question

I have an MFC application that uses some business objects created a few
years ago in the form of "extension dlls." I've been updating it now for
quite a while. I recently got a request to develop a browser-based interface

as our company only wants to support Apache servers. But, to ease my pain,
they're allowing me to run an IIS server so I can program it in .NET.

application? I simply do not want to re-write them in anyt...Basic Question on autocomplete function
Hi everyone, my first time on the forum and my first thread. I apologize

came up with many unrelated threads so I thought I'd give this a shot.
I am trying to auto complete a link to another worksheet by corner
dragging a formula over a ROW in one worksheet FROM data in the COLUMN
of another worksheet. In other words:

Firstly, our current environment (Exchange 2003 SP2) started life years
back as an Exchange 5.5 environment, and when I run the export phase,
many of the PST files have names based on the random directory name used
for the mailbox so rather than "Joe Bloggs.pst" I have "E76EC87.pst"
which is not ideal.
I recently started receiving the following error
message; "Product Information: Money was unable to
complete the operation. The Internet, banking, or

do I correct? Thanks.

I have WinXP. I created a Table in WordPerfect (6.1) and then opened it up
in Word (2003) so I could send it to some people who only have Word. In

know how to get rid of. Doing Delete on the last table page, or Backspace
on the blank page, doesn't work because the cursor is inside the table at
the end. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!
