Not a master browser error.

We have a Windows network with both Windows 2000 & 2003 servers, clients 
are XP with some Macs that authenticate logons within AD. Recently our 
"System" log file became full with the same error & warning messages over & 
over, they are:

The warning message is:
"The browser has received a server announcement indicating that the 
computer W2KSERVER2 is a master browser, but this computer is not a master 

The error message is:
"A duplicate name has been detected on the TCP network.  The IP address of 
the machine that sent the message is in the data. Use nbtstat -n in a 
command window to see which name is in the Conflict state."

I'm figuring that the 2 messages relate to the same problem, which is that 
we have 2 computers with the same name on our network. The "nbtstat -n" 
command doesn't give me much info & if I try 'net view' I get the error 
"System error 6118 has occurred. The list of servers for this workgroup is 
not currently available".

Can anyone give any advice on how to troubleshoot this error?

Excel embedded in web browser
Hi all, need help in solving this myth. I needed my users to click on the EXCEL icon from the Online Apps that was developed with VB.NET containing data they've requested. Intentionally, I wanted those data to be display in the EXCEL CONSOLE. But somehow, without knowing how, it started to download those data to EXCEL EMBEDDED IN POPUP WEB BROWSER instead. Since I have it configure to be a "Menuless" frame, so users with EXCEL EMBEDDED IN POPUP WEB BROWSER cannot save the file at all. Question 1: Why is this happening? Question 2: How to resolve this from happening? Thank...

master template
Hi, I believe there is a way to do this but it's been quite a while since I've had to do anything like it. Is there a way to create one template datasheet as a 'master' sheet and then have several copies of the master. Whatever changes occur in the master will flow into the copies? Thanks Derek It really depends on *exactly* what your meaning of "copies" is. If you're talking about opening a 'copy' of the template, adding data and/or calculating, then *saving* under a different name in a pertinent (read other then template folder), AFAIK, the an...

Web browser ActiveX and focus
I put a web browser activex control on my form that's working fine. I also have a transparent command box on the form coded the same on some of my other forms that uses the 'On Key Press' event that calls a function when the user hits enter. Problem is on this form I can't get the box to take the focus so the user can hit enter and fire the event. Like I said, other forms work fine...I tried to use a timer function to delay setting the focus to the box for 6 secs... plenty of time for the web page to load... but the browser control seems to keep the focus.

Browser instances launched from messages
I have my Internet explorer browser configured to not "Reuse windows for launching shortcuts". In other words, new browser instances open in their own windows and don't share windows. But in Outlook (2000 in CW mode) when I click on links in an HTML message, the same browser window gets shared. Does anyone know of a way to change the behavior so that clicking on the links in an HTML message will cause separate unshared browser windows to open up?

Mystery Constant Causes #Value Error
I guess I stumped everyone in excel.worksheetfunctions group 'cause no one answered July 28 post. Hope someone here has the answer. A spreadsheet displays the #Value error in many cells. Each of these cells contains a formula that simply sums 3 non-contiguous cells in the same column e.g. =SUM(B16,B14,B12). The formula toolbar indicates the reason for the error is that a cell or cells in the range contains a constant which cannot be evaluated. However, no data is visible in the referenced cells (or formula bar when they are clicked on). There are no named ranges that I can see. If I selec...

What is meant by master and master shorcut in Microsoft Visio? A Master is a shape definition. It stores all the information about a shape: it's geometry, text, behaviors, formatting, custom properties, etc. It also stores the icon you see in the Shapes window. When you open a drawing and see shapes in the Shapes window, you are looking at Masters. You can drag a Master onto the drawing to create a Shape instance. The difference between a Master and a Shape is not that important to most users, and we often refer to both items as shapes. If you begin to create your own shapes, M...

convert slide master to title master
Hello, I am moving slides between decks, and the slide and title master have become "disconnected". I have two slide masters, and no title master. Is there a way to reconnect them without having to build the title again? Which version of PPT are you using? If it's 2003, you might just want to add a title master to the 2nd slide master (which is really your title master, right?). It should look pretty similar to the slide master, so maybe you don't have to rebuild so much. Then go to Format | Slide Design and choose the 2nd slide master -- right-click it ...

Control of Customer/ Vendor Masters
Hi, This is a query regarding control of Customer/ Vendor Masters. We are using GP 7.50. After creation of a customer/ vendor master, you cannot alter the key field which in this case is the customer/ vendor number. However you can change the name of the customer/vendor in the card. We have given rights to a staffer to create new customers, but she now has the rights to change the names of existing customers. This was not the intention. Is there a way to allow her to create new customer, but prevent alteration of old customer cards? Thanks in advance Carl Field level security might...
