Excel Pivot Table Creator Issue
I'm unable to Export to Excel my pivot table created in the Excel Pvot Table
Creator. I select my dimensions, measures, rows, and data then hit the Excel
button. I keep getting the following error:

I imported a picture and saved it as a shape. Then I linked data from a SQL
database. I can get the data to show up in the Shape Date, but I can't get a
Data Graphic to appear.
Note that I can get Data Graphics to work with out of the box shapes in the
same drawing - just not the custom picture.
Tried in both Visio 2007 and 2010 Beta. What am I doing wrong?
Thanks in advance.

I charted the following data in a clustered column chart.
Level 1 Level 2 Level 3 Level 4
FY07 - Total 167 23 20 43 81
FY08 - Total 178 22 40 26 90
These are total department errors segregated by levels for each fiscal year.
There are 3 different departments involved. What I did was just total the
errors for each FY and each level. Now my boss wants to see how many errors
were performed within each level by Dept A, Dept B and Dept C and compare the
2 fiscal years. I hope I’m explaining...Cannot change account type.

Was there a question here?
I think the message you got tells you about three fourths of the problem.
The final fourth that the first three fourths prevents you from getting to is
that an Investment Account and a Bank Account are fundamentally different
types--one holds Investments, the other holds cash--so a change from one ...Calculated field in pivot table #4

...Can Import Email Data Filed from Office XP to Office 2003
My HD failed but I had a backup of my Office XP Pro personal file folder
with a lot of emails I needed. The file is about 128MB in size. I put a new
HD in and installed Office 2003 Pro. When I go to open the old file Outlook
2003 says that the file "is not a personal folders file". (It was backed up
to a CD ROM prior to the crash so the source file should be good.) I really
don't want to uninstall Office 2003 and put back Office XP. Any idea why
2003 won't open the file and how to work around that? Many thanks in advance
to anyone who knows the solution. Alan.

I am importing a table from another DB that has job numbers and descriptions.
My database goes off of these job numbers for referencing.
Problem is the data is imported as centered in the field.
so I end up with [ 1213 ] in my job number field.
I do have a query that runs through this table and selects the data I need,
I believe that this query would be the place to fix the "center" align.
Though I am having troubles finding how to do this
I need to end up with job numbers that have no spaces ie. 
(brackets are showing beginning and end of the field).
