Is there any way to recover changes after closing w/o saving?

 Well, I did a really stupid thing. Is there any way to recover some recent 
changes to a spread sheet after accidentally closing w/o saving?  Does excel 
happen to make auto recover files one can get to even if the file not damaged?

Licensing changes
We have a customer who has downsized their operation and will have significantly fewer users on a MS CRM system. We need to know if it is possible to get the license reassigned to reflect this, so when they purchase upgrades to add-on products they do not have to purchase licensing reflecting the old much larger organization. Thank you for the help. -- Patrick You will need to discuss this with Microsoft to see if they can give you a license key with a smaller number of users.

outlook won't close #2

entering new data in a saved spreadsheet without losing formulas?
How do I do this? Hi Jackie, As long as you do not overwrite the formulas, then any new data will not affect the formula. I suspect though that there is more to this question. Are you concerned about writing new data into a cell that has a formula in it? The way to stop a cell's data being overwritten is to put protection onto it. This means taking protection off all the other cells otherwise you will not be able to write data to any cell. First select the whole worksheet concerned, then go to Format\Cells and select the protection tab and unselect the 'locked' tick box,...

Recover Deleted Items in Outlook 2000
I recently had a user that lost all items in the "Deleted Items" folder and needs to rocover them. I am using Outlook 2000 and wouls appreciate any information on how or where to view these items. Do you use Exchange server? If so, and it's configured for deleted item retention, you can get the items back if they were deleted within that time frame (however long retention is set for). If you don't use Exchange server, or even if you do and you use PST files for delivery (ick), you may be out of luck - but see http://www.outlook-tips.net/howto/recover_deleted.htm for one pos...

Change OWA FBA's logon page
All, We are running Exchange 2003 with a Front-End/Back-End configuration. This works fine. SSL in configured. I want to change to FBA (Forms Based Authentication). However, we were informed to modify the default page so that users DO NOT see the "Client" and "Security" options, but pass 'Premium' and 'Public or shared computer' parameters. Does anyone know how to do this? Since I am not a programmer/developer step by step instruction would be helpful. I am sure multiple files require a change. Thank you. ...

Saved Queries #2
We are using Exchange Server 2003 and Windows Server 2003. On our DC, I created a number of Saved Queries that provide a list of members for our mail-enabled distribution lists. Right now the only fileds that appear in the result is the Name and Type (contact, user). In order to get the Display name and Email addresses to appear, I have to go to View --> Add/Remove Columns and add them that way. Is there a way to use the AND operator when setting up the queries? Also, I found out that you can export the query definition and then import it but you can't export the saved querie...

Best Way to Handle Recreating Accounts and Category Info

Powerpoint 2007 links change from drive letters to UNC paths

After we try to update the links that have changed to UNC paths, we get the following error: "The linked file was unavailable and can't be updated". I have been unable to find a fix or workaround for this other than to take the hour to update all of the links in the affected presentation.

Vista start-up & networking w/ XP
I have two questions if someone can assist or at least direct me where to find some answers. Where is the "correct place" to store start-up scripts in Vista and Windows 7? Traditionally in Windows XP this is done using local policy editor and setting the startup/shutdown scripts. Because I have Vista Home Premium, this feature is disabled. I know this is probably stored some where in the registry, but I am not sure where this is. The second question has to do with networking. I have two machines one running Vista Home Premium and the second is a Windows XP machine. I h...

Changing SQL Logins in Upgrade to GP10
We will be upgrading to GP 10 soon. I set up a test environment, restored a recent prod backup to test. I created the sql logins manually and noticed certain vba errors springing up because the sql logins I created did not precisely match the usernames in GP. When I say not match I mean there were some legacy logins that contained trailing spaces presumably from someone copying and pasting rich text (perhaps from Excel) into SQL Server. There were some logins that were mixed-case, some lower-case, some upper-case etc. I thought this might be a good time to clean these up since we a...
