```If column A has your dates then column B should be
=eomonth(a1,-1)+1

This will calculate the last day of the previous month and then add 1
day.

```Hi,
use the following =EOMONTH("Date",-1)+1, where "date"
represents the cell address of the cells you want
evaluated.  Note that you will need to have the analysis
toolpack addin installed to use this formula.

HTH.

Block SMTP inbound/outbound on the border router. Any reason to let SMTP work internally ?
I found out that SMTP is open in my workstation subnets in my organization. In addtion to block the SMTP inbound/outbound traffic on the border router, I would like to confirm if there is any reason to let SMTP open internally. (we have Exch2000SP3, Outlook2002/2003 and that doesn't rely on SMTP). Not unless you have some application that uses SMTP to send mail. One example might be a monitoring package that sends alerts. In cases like that, I'd make sure that you have port 25 restricted to only a specific set of computers. -- Ben Winzenz Exchange MVP "Marlon Brown&qu...

Thumbnails: Entourage and MS Word help screens
I use OS 10.3 and Office 2004 for Mac 11.2.1 (recently downloaded the upgrade). For several weeks, Entourage messages and Microsoft Word help screens have been previewing and printing only as thumbnails. I know that Preview tends to reduce the size of documents so they will show in the small viewing window, but on my machine Entourage messages and Microsoft Word help screens preview in microscopic text--and print that way, too. The text is about 2 pts. This happens when I use any of the three printers in our office. I've noticed that while the preview PDFs are up on screen the "actu...
