How to use outlook address in Excel
I have an Excel sheet which I use as an invoicing-application. I would like
to retrieve address-data from Outlook where I keep all my contact-data of my
customers. So, I want to select a customer from my Outlook contactlist when I
am writing a new invoice in Excel.
In Word, I have a macro which does this, but unfortunately the
Application.GetAddress does not work in Excel.
Can somebody help me ?

I've created a workflow which checks the Estimated Close Date, closer than 2
days from today, on an Opportunity and sends an email to the user and adds
another 2 days to Estimated Close Date. Then it calls it self. After 10
times of doing this I get an error saying that that the workflow has stopped
with an error telling that the workflow is calling it self too many times.
Any way to turn of this ?
Or any workaround ?
...why can't I get outlook to send when I'm emailing a webpage?
Hi. When I try to email a webpage to someone, Outlook immediately opens with
the email template but it is always missing the send button and there is no
option under actions to send it either. What is going on? Thanks!!!
If you tell us your Outlook version and Windows version, and exactly what
you're doing to send the page, then you'll have a better chance of getting a
response. The Internet Explorer version might also be helpful.

I'm thinking of putting the .Tag property to use by using a binary

In Microsoft Excel 2000, we seem to be getting the above
error message frequently. No other users are in the file,
and there aren't any temporary files relating to the file

We are running a mixture of Windows 2000 & XP machines on

I think you killed the usual answer of cleaning the temp folder.
But have you rebooted? Maybe there's a hidden instance of excel running that
