merging into Word with filtered data
I'm trying to do a merge in Word using data from Excel. However, I don't
want to merge using data from the whole worksheet, but just filtered data
(all people from London - place is one of the fields in the worksheet. I have
no idea how I might do this. Any help gratefully received.
I believe you can accomplish this from Word by using "Query Options" and
selecting to merge only those records you're seeking.

I run a W2k network in a school. I have Office Group Policies in place
forcing the default save location for Publisher documents (Office XP version)
to the pupil's home folders. All my PCs are identical (ghost images).
Pupils have roaming profiles (some mandatory).
Some users save work in Publisher and the next time they log on to the
network and open the saved file, it's contents have gone! There is nothing
exceptional about the affected users' user accounts and they have a mixture
of mandatory and roaming profiles.
Has anyone come across this problem before?

You can't have integrated RI across databases so that part is out. But you

"Smokey Grindel"...record sheet row order, then restore to that point
There is the ability to undo a sort so I suspect the information I
want is somewhere. Is there a way to take a "snap shot" of a sheet's
current row order, and then restore that row order at any point in the
future? During sheet processing, rows will not be added, but data in
any cell may change.
The only other way I can think of doing this, is to record the order
of some "signature" column and then use it to re-write the processed
sheet to a scratch sheet.
Add a new column before you do the 1st sort with number 1 to last row.

...Pulling data from multiple worksheets
I have one worksheet with a listing of client numbers and names. I would

Look at the Vlookup function or the combination of Index / Match. Vlookup
will be a little more straight forward for a first timer but Index / Match is
generally speaking a more flexible and less error prone solution.
