I receive emails from a distribution list.
I have set a "Search Folder"(outlook 2003) for these emails that allow
me to view items arranged by Conversation.
I need to create a view that will allow me to see Only the first items
in a conversation.By viewing that conversation I should be able to
decide whether or not I need to expand that group and read later emails
in that thread. If I decide not to follow up on that conversation, I
should be able to delete it and not have items from that conversation
This sounds challenging but I'm sure that the Outlook experts ...Conversion error
I have a table called stats that has the following columns:
jobname, ahours, aminutes, aseconds, amilliseconds.
I need to get an average of each job ran but I need to be able to
concatenate ahours, aminutes, aseconds, amillisecons into one column.
I am trying to run a simple query:
SELECT JobName, CONVERT(NVARCHAR (100),(AVG (AHours) + ':' + AVG
(AMinutes) + ':' + AVG (ASeconds) + ':' + AVG (AMilliseconds))) AS
'Average Time' FROM stats

My wife's business hard drive crashed, but I do have a
data backup. She had Outlook Express 5.5. I have a copy

OE 4 format, but not version 5.x ! How can I get these
files converted to a format that OE 6 will/can read?

Word documents open with the File Conversion window showing first. No matter
what encoding I select I still get incomprehensible characters. This occurrs
in all my saved and new files and I just can't get them to display normally.
That suggests that the files are all corrupt. Where are they stored? How did
they get there? How long has this been happening? Which versions of Word and
OS are you using? Are they fully patched up to date?

I know that the Subject might be a little off, but here's my issue.
I am importing data from a spreadsheet into an Access database. In
this particular column of data, the data looks like this: 911B00,
91FT20, 911000, 91E000.
My issue is that when I import that column if data, for some reason it
takes the records with a "E" (like 911E00) and displays them as
exponential numbers and displays "9.10E+01" - how can I prevent Access
from doing that - or what function can a put in a query to fix that?

I normally use View/Group Messages by Conversation for my emails. I have had
no problems before.
A friend sent me an email. I used the Reply button to reply. Then I moved

the original message. But my reply was missing.

I converted a large Lotus 123 document into excel, now whatever date I enter
returns a 1/00/00 date, in whatever format I choose..Jan 0 1900..1-0-00 etc.

I have an Access 2000 database which runs perfectly until
i loaded it on a new machine. This machine was loaded
with Windows 2000 and Access 2000 but it behaves in an
odd way. When I go to a pop up form it looses track of
the current record when returning to the main part of the
system and it appears to do this randomly, sometimes it
is OK then it all collapses!
I suspect that it may be due to later updates in Windows
that somehow make it not backward compatible. I have
tried the database on different older machines and in
Access 2002, 2003 and it is all OK there.

I would like to create a custom view that is a mix between the
standard message view (arranged by date) and message view (arranged by
conversation). In other words, I would like to group by date first at
the top level, and then within each date grouping, I would like to
have message group by conversation. So this would mean that the
"Today" grouping would have only those conversations that had messages
sent that day, and "Yesterday" would have those conversations where
the last message sent was yesterday, and so on.
