Creating an Excel table from Access
Hi, I have an Access database which I use to log downtime for systems. I have a requirement to produce a monthly report based on this data, however, this needs to be exported to excel in a specific format. Down the left side of the report need to go the names of the services, with the days (numerically like: 1, 2, 3 .. 29, 30 etc) across the top. Then I need to count the number of times each service was down on a give day, and insert that information into the necessary cell - so if intranet services had been down twice on 16th March, for example, there would be a 2 in column 16, whi...

Hiding KB976002 results in security warning
Windows XP SP3 Windows update allows you to hide an update you don't want to install. Of course I have hidden KB976002 which is presented as a critical update but is not a security update and is only needed when the user wants to have it. However, now Windows Update complains that I have hidden a critical security update and that my computer will be in great danger until I restore this update. This is of course incorrect. KB976002 is not a security update. Please update the Windows Update site so that KB976002 can be hidden without further messages and incorrect warnings...
