BackupWrite and file times
I am using BackupRead to backup files and BackupWrite to restore them. I
have noticed that the restored files do not have the create, access, and
modified times of the original file.
I was under the impression that BackupRead was supposed to save all file
information. I can always use SetFileTime to set the file dates after
restore, but that means I have to come up with a way to store the dates
along with the file.
Is normal for BackupWrite to not set file dates or am I doing something

I have an external application which dumps data to text files which I then
work on using excel. I'm trying to write a macro to automate the batch
conversion process, but I have a problem because the external application
names the files with a date appendage (see example below) :-
I do need to keep the date in the excel file name if possible.
How can I get excel to open any filename begining with the string "B_Report"
? Is there any way of adding a wildcard to the file name string ?

I am looking for a way to allow a user (staffing manager) to change, add &

responses to job opportunites where different jobs will have different email

or write a mmc for it.
Would there be a better way? Thanks for any advice.

Why are you creating this dynamically? This is usually not necessary, and creating one,
particularly one with hardwired sizes and positions, is always a very risky proposition.

Try recording a macro when you do it manually. You may get very close to what
But it might be easier to just apply data|filter to your whole range.
Then you can filter by team color to just show the Purple team (Vikings???).
