I'm using V11.0 Money 2003. Following the help
directions, after entering the date and trying to save to
a disc, I'm told "the disc is full" and it will not
archive my records to the floppy.
I've tried several discs, and shortened the time period
to be "archived" and nothing works. Advice please?

...Hundreds of log files!!!
I've finnally managed to set up my first exchange 2003 server. But now I
have a problem: something is generating log text files by the dozen! It
appears to be one per message, althought I haven't been able to confirm this.
In one night I got 1.5 GB of logs...
How do I stop this?
Any help appreciated
They sound like your transaction log files. The correct way to purge them
is to perform a full online backup of Exchange using an Exchange-aware
backup program; the backup will then purge the committed log files.
Certainly, it is not recommended to manually remove them.
-...PST file on flash memory?
Are there any known pitfalls in having my pst file on a USB memory stick?
USB memory sticks have a finite lifespan (measured in reads & writes).
With a modern stick, you are probably not going to hit it for a long
time. I would however suggest that you have some backup scheme to back
the file up to a hard drive regularly, and with increasing frequency the
older the stick becomes.
I don't know of anyone actually having tried this, so you are in
Do you want to do this so that you are able to transport the PST or in

Excel 2003 will close when trying to open a specific file. When Excel is
reopened the file is in the recovery box. When I open the file from the
recovery box it gives a message that the file is too corrupt to repair and
most of my data is gone along with any formatting. This is the only file
that seems to be affected and it use to open without any problems. The same
file will open on other computers with Excel 2003 without any problems. The
only difference between this file and others that seem to have no problem is

My Office Outlook 2007 pst file has grown to hundreds of megabytes in size,
and I cannot do an online differential backup.
Can Outlook store it as hundreds of 1Mb chunks regardless of folders, or
split it into separate files for each sub folder ?
You wont be doing a differential backup in any case, the pst is a single
file, and its attribute is reset whenever outlook is opened, in other words
only a full backup will be done.
Have you used any of the archive options?

news:u4QqlpL...Filing Outlook Notes.
Why can't I put a MS Outlook 2000 SR1 Corporate or Workgroup Note anywhere
other than the Notes folder?
I would like to be able to drag and drop Notes into other Folders that I
create in the same way as I can MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint etc files from
Win Explorer. Is this possible? If so how, is there something I need to
tweak to enable this, or is it a 'feature' of Outlook?
Drag and drop the note anywhere you want but realize that it will take on
the default form for the folder where you drop it. For instance, dragging a
note to the calendar will create a calendar item.

...Bar Charts created in Excel 2003
For certain charts that I create within Excel 2003 (usually bar
charts), I use a font size of 8 (eg for data labels, axis labels, and
scale). If I close the file and then re-open it, all these fonts will
have become size one (title and legend are not effected).
Oddly, if I have created a bar chart and made several copies of it
within a worksheet, it will only be the original and not the copies
that are affected by this.
If anyone can shed any light on why this may be happening and how it
could be fixed, I would really appreciate it.
