#### Multiplication Error

```I am trying to compute an ending sales price after several discount
have been applied. We have a retail price that is discounted multipl
times depending on the type of customer we are dealing with.

For example:

Retail Price = \$2.95
Dealer Discount = 50% then 10% then 5%
Dealer Price = \$1.26

The sum of the first discount is then multiplied by the next discount
and so on. What formula can I use to compute the following?

2.95 * .50=1.48
1.48*.10=.15
1.48-.15=1.33
1.33*.05=.07
1.33-.07=1.2

Same account, multiple SMTP servers

Is there any provision in Outlook for trying different servers in priority order until one works? Any other ideas for solving this problem?

Copying from multiple worksheets
I want to copy a cell (say A1) from multiple worsheets to a single sheet in different cells (say A2 thru A15) using a formula. if you have some system in the naming of the sheets with numbers like in the default names (Sheet1, Sheet2 etc) it might be possible.
