Office XP Exel
Scenario: User's A,B, C, and D all have access to an excel XLS on a 2003
server. Users A & B have modify rights, users C&D only have read rights. If
user A updates the file, the general tab in properties reflect the exact
time the file was modified. After user A saves and closes the file, user D
goes in. The changes are there, but in the properties general tab, the
modify date in an old date (probably the actual creation date). Is this
normal ? Any idea's ?
...Update one table from another
I am trying to update one table that has one record for each employee(table
1) with available vacation time. The other table records every time off
request(table 2) and how much time they want off. I have the update query
and it works fine. The problem is that everytime it is ran every requested
time off amount(from table2) is subtracted from the available time(table1)
again and again. I want the records for requested time(table2) to update the
employee available time off(table1) only once, but keep the records on the
table as that is the basis for a report.

I wondered what that is so I tried to use Help to find out.
I did find help that mapped a word (like paragraph) into a symbol.

can someone explain in plain English what this formula is actually
=IF(C32="FOB",(B28:C28/'Board Pricing and
conversion'!B19)-B28,(B28/'Board Pricing and conversion'!B20)-B28)
I understand the C32="FOB", but the rest I don't. I know it is
referencing another spreadsheet but don't know what it is looking at??
Double-click on the cell with the formula and you will see the syntax
IF(logical_test, [value_if_true], [value_if_false])
You have a logical text for "FOB" on C32 of active sheet.

There's probably an easier way to do it but...
I have a series of numbers in column A (150 in all) and a series of letters
in column B (22 in all). In total there are 4800 rows.
What I am trying to do is create a table with the number down the left hand
side and the letters across the top. In each cell within the table I need
to count how many times the combination of number/letter appears. Eg:
A B C
201 0 2 2
202 3 0 1
203 3 6 4

Whenever I use clip art in Publisher or Word (2000) it says to insert the
CD (#2) that has it on it. Which I do. Before I reinstalled WINDOWS a few
weeks ago, and had to put everything in again, I had the clip art on my
computer. So, if I needed something it was right there and I didn't need to
keep putting in the CD.
I have tried this several times, in Word (mainly, though I use clip art
in Publisher too and have that function, using clip art, enabled- after it
asked if I wanted to) The CD brings up the install and I click ADD OR REMOVE
FEATURES and click on the clip art and "...Finding all queries which use a table

I know both are the same equation. Which one is by definition ? "Duration =
