My organization has been producing reports that contain population
pyramids. In the past, all of their reports have been printed, so it
didn't matter that in order to get the desired look, they had to use
two charts slightly overlapping each other. However, we are getting to
the point where we would like our charts to be available online for

I have a table with a computed column. When I try to import data into table
through BCP it generates error due to computed column. So how to handle a
computed column while importing data into table through bcp from a text file.
You need to use a format file that tells BCP to skip that column. See BOL
for info on bcp format files.

Does anyone know how I can create a step line chart without having to have 2 data points per x-axis point. What I want is a horizontal line until the next data point and then I want the line to go vertical.
You Will need some form of extra data to get excel to create a step
chart. Take a look at these methods.

For example the number 73 comes up 3 times in a column on my spreadsheet, how

Thanks for the help
You will need to compute those values using formula or a pivot table and
then chart the results.

in another with a different version and in both look fine. Thus, I
erased and re-installed excel in my computer to no avail. I have also

We have a table with about 40 columns and 120 Rows and we

& C) and then merging each trio of cells (i.e. A1, B1, &

GP 10 & FRx 6.7. We are migrating to GP from MAS 500. In MAS, our budget

based on Fiscal Year can only contain data for one year. Is this correct?
The whole point is for FRx column specifications to reference a single

someone provide GP Budgeting answers? Thanks.
You can only have one budget associated with a particular Budget ID.
