```=mround() needs to have the analysis toolpak loaded.

Another way without the analysis toolpak.
=ROUND(A1/5,0)*5

If you got the #NAME error, see HELP for MROUND.  You need to install the
Analysis Tool Pak.

Or you could use this formula:

=ROUND(A1/5,0)*5

move mailboxes from 5.5 to 2003, users can't delete items
We've been moving mailboxes from an Exchange 5.5 box to an Exchange 2003 SP2 system. The moves seem to work fine (no errors) but when some users go into Outlook and try to delete messages from the "deleted items" folder, they can't. No error messages occur, nothing happens. If you do a SHIFT-DEL, then the items can be deleted. We've also noticed that the "recover deleted items" option is greyed out. The client systems that seem to have the most problems are those users running Outlook 2000. I tested creating a user account with a mailbox on the 5.5 box. Sen...

Multiple plot areas
I am trying to create a figure consisting of four graphs, displayed beneath each other. I want them to share the same xaxis (time) as they each display a different variable as a function of the same time period. I need the plot areas to be the same width across so that the variables can be compared. I have tried to copy the chart and use paste special and format, but this still allows for differences in the plot width. Even if the xaxis is repeated on each graph it doesnt matter, i just need the width and scale to be the same so i can compare each graph. Help! -- Katie Hi, Have a loo...

Returning matched employee number from a different sheet

Results contains Forename , Surname , DOB and Gender some, but not many Emp Ref. I would like to pull the Employee Ref from Data into results.

Moving GP 7.5 to another server
I'm trying to copy our current GP 7.5 environment to a new server to test our 7.5 ->9.0 upgrade. I'm following the steps that are deliniated in KB article 878449. The only thing I'm unclear on is after I've moved my databases to the new server they then say to install GP. Will that blow away my DYNAMICS DB that was copied to the new server? Also do I need to set up the framework on the new server or will that get picked up when I attach my old DB's. Doing the Server/Client install has no effect on your databases.
