Mail Merge and Labels
OK. I've read the posts but don't seem to find an answer for my problem.
I have created a Publisher file and set it up to run an Avery 5163 label.
I get a single lable to work with and that's fine. I want use the mail
merge feature to merge in data from my Access Database.
While I'm creating the label, I don't use the mail merge feature (haven't
even yet added the data source). I just want to see how it looks and feels.
So I put a dummy name (Jane Doe) on the label.
When I publish to Adobe .pdf (which is how I'm going to distribute the
labels), I get a f...Time functions #2
I have to do some time calculations and I have a formula that outputs
in minutes and I have to subtract a standard time to this number of
minutes. For example, I have 8:00 AM in one cell and 20.68 minutes on
an other cell. The output that I am expecting is 7:39 AM. Does anybody
know how to bring an output like that by subtracting the minutes?
Please help. Thanks
With 8:00 AM in A1 and 20.68 in B1, use this formula
Why does it work? Because Excel stores time as a fraction of a day. We
convert minutes to days by dividing by 24*60 (24 hr/day and 60 min/hr) You

I've created a small but somewhat complex relational database that uses
autonumber fields in higher level tables as primary keys to link with foreign
keys in lower level tables. At this point I have up to 5 levels of tables.
I'd like to copy this database for use at 4 other remote sites, with the
ultimate intention of merging all 5 back together after a few months of data
entry. I've read quite a bit about how to merge databases that weren't
originally designed with future merges in mind, and this ends up being quite
complex with so many levels and autonumber-dependent t...Adding functionality to MS Outlook Express
