Mounting old Data Stores
Due to problems with Win2003 SBS, I did a reinstall of Win2003 SBS sp1 from
original CD-s. Before 'deleting' the old Windows, I made an ASR tape backup
of the running server. It seams the ASR backup backed up only drive C: with
all relevant data. As other data were on drive D: (Exchange data files, SQL
data files,...), I backed up the D: drive too to a separate tape in a
separate ntbackup session.
Before the backup I used Exmerge to export all users mailboxes. Later I
imported those mailboxes in a new Exchange installation.
Unfortunately the user forgot to told me, they hav...Import external data-text files but placed in the next column rather than next empty row

At the moment I can manually do this, by selecting the cell below the
last record then using the process "Get external Data" and following
the wizard which works fine.

Gary, take a look at the Data Loader at http://www.add-ins.com/dataload.htm.
It will do most of what you want. It will color the cells that are loaded
blue so that you can identify the ones that were updated.

I just installed MS CRM 3.0, the demo version that was released a few months
ago. I figured that surely there would be be updates, bug fixes, etc., but a

Have there been any updates?
Is MS Update the place to find them?
If not, where?
MS Update will not update CRM. Since it's a business app, hotfixes are not
automatically applied since many are only distributed when customers
experience specific issues that require the hotfix. There is also a

We use linked data worksheets for some of our reporting. The column format
displays both current period and YTD. The YTD column is not calculating the
correct amounts from the worksheet.
For example, if we were in period 12, it would sum the YTD column as follows.
period 1: add 12x
period 2: add 11x
period 3: add 10x
period 4: add 9x
....and so forth
period 12: add 1x
Obviously, this gives us a huge error in the ytd column.
Anyone have an idea why this is occurring? We are using the /cpo format for
the linked worksheet.

Is there an alternate way to select a data series to format
in an XY Scatter chart?
The only way I know of is to move the cursor close to the
series line and right-click.
But if the chart includes many data series and the lines
are close together, it is difficult, if not "impossible", to
select the desired line.
I am looking for a method that presents me with a list
of all the data series, and I select the one I want to
"right click" (i.e. open the menu that include format,
add trendline and clear, among others).
Or something else that would not be so difficult to use.

I have a worksheet I would like to make a pivot table from. My problem

I have a pivot table that has a number of calculated fields in it.
One of the calculated fields looks at a column of data that has an amout in
it and this is multiplied by another field that has a dollar figure in it.
Each line of data the Pivot Table calculates as normal. The problem I have
is that the Grand Total works correctly for all the columns in the Pivot
Table except for the ones that contain the dollar figures from the calculated
field. The Grand Total line display a dollar figure that is approximately 10
times as much as what it should be.
