pst file that will not load
When trying to reload a pst file that we saved to backup
before reformatting out drive and reloading the software
we get an error that the pst file is not a personal
folders file. In explorer it shows as a .pst and the file
type is outlook data file. Any ideas on how to fix or
load the file.
Make sure the file isn't marked read-only. If it's on a CD, move it to your
hard drive and remove the read-only attribute.

This is my first post to this forum, and my first attempt at VBA in Outlook.
I want to:
generate a random number between X and Y
open a text file for reading
read the line from the file that corresponds to the random number
concatenate some text to that line
add the result to the signature of an email
Can I do that with VBA?
Could someone point me to some code examples to get me started?
This returns a random value:
Dim MaxValue&, MinValue&, Result&
Result = Int((MaxValue - MinValue + 1) * Rnd + MinValue)

I have download a sample from the msdn archive.
When i opened the file i didn't find WSD file to open the
whole project, i looked at the instructions and it's
say's to open from the file with .sln extension, what is
this file? and how can i open the whole project?
The .sln file is the "solution" file.
Solution is a new term and file extension in VC7. Files of
this type gathers all kinds of projects such as VB and VC.
Bottom line: you've downloaded a sample for VC7 and there
is no workspace(.dsw) file.

I have a file with a udf extension. When I searched the several sites said
that it was related to excel, so I opened it with excel. When opened, it is
incomprehensible letters and symbols. Is there a way to convert it so that
it is readabl?

Is there some tool or some way to dumb all the Quota Limits to a file ?
It would be most helpful to easily create a file from where I could check

some users have bigger or smaller limits as well.
Can't you do it with ESM, via menu at the top?

I copied my .xlb file from one computer to another from a CD. Apparently,

I have tried to copy my publisher files from my hard

different computer the pictures do not show up. Anyone
know how I copy so that the pictures are included as well?
If the images are linked rather than imbedded, the images will not copy. Otherwise
Publisher does not do well opening from a removable disk. Drag the file to your hard
drive and open again.

I am trying to find out if it is possible to take the 1st sheet from

There is no built-in Excel tool to do this. You could write a macro to do
it of course. Sorry I do not have an example.

These are your Exchange transaction log files; do not interfere with them
manually. You need to perform an online backup with an Exchange aware
backup program. This will purge the log files on a nightly basis (assuming
you choose a full or incremental backup). As a short-term measure, you

Has anyone ever experienced this? If so, how were you able to get around it?

person accepts the meeting, the appointment goes on the calendar, but adds
that file path to the information. So when one sees a mtg scheduled on their
