#### Simple user defined function

```Hi Please can anyone help
I have created a    Function CtoF(Centigrade)
CtoF =  Centigrade * 9 / 5 + 32

in theVB sheet1 code

I have then placed the function = CtoF (A2) in the worksheet cell B2

A2 contains a number, the function in Cell B2 should convert the number in
A2 to degrees Farenheit but it only gives me an error  #NAME?  I have the
correct addins and checked the names of functions but nothing works please
someone help.

```You may want to use a function built-in to excel:

=CONVERT(A1,"C","F")

(well, unless this was a learning exercise???)

User with different alias cannot POP email from server??
Running Exchange 5.5 and here's my situation. I have a user with an NT account of bsmith. Her alias is barbsmith because there was already a bsmith alias on another Exchange server in our network. This user can log into OWA fine by using her proper alias but I cannot get Outlook to POP her email from our server. I can open Outlook 2002 on my PC and use the Test Account button for pretty much any users account but it won't work with hers. If I test with hers I get a failure message. The only difference I can see between her account and other users is the alias. I tried deleting h...

USER NAMES
Hi, Like many telesales functions ours has a high staff turnover. In order to keep having to set up new Active Directory and CRM user accounts I was thinking of setting up a generic user accounts called, for example, telesales1, telesales2 etc instead of individual user names. The Active Directory user would therefore be called telesales 1 and within MS CRM instead of user names there would be telesales1, telesales 2 etc. Does anyone have any opinion as to whether there would be any issues with MS CRM and this intended approach? Best regards Lee Lee, As long as these users are truly uni...

Possible problem with PMT and FV functions
Hello, I must be missing something -- here’s the question. If I use the Excel PMT(rate, number of periods, beginning balance, 0,0) function, I can obtain the payments that would be made from an annuity, given the three parameters shown with the function above. The last two values are for “future value” which is set to zero, and “type” which can be a zero or 1, but I set to zero. Once I obtain the payment, I should be able to reverse the calculation and obtain the original value by using the FV(rate, periods, payments, present value, type) function. The problem is ...

VBScript String Clean function
This article provides a function written in VBScript which removes illegal characters from a string. The illegal characters are specified in an array at the beginning of the function. The function is passed the string which may contain illegal characters, which then processes the string to remove or replace any illegal characters. The code also allows you to specify the character or word which will replace specific illegal characters. The illegal characters provided in the function are included for processing strings which will become the filename of a document or list item in Sh...

BUG in typed dataset generation, when using maxoccurs and Simple Types??
Hi, I've looked all over for any information about this, and either this is a bug that I cannot find reported or I've misunderstood something. Lets say, in the XML Designer in VS.NET 2003, you drag over an element (call it MyElement) and add another element of type string (call it NormalElement) as a member. If you look at the generated typed Dataset code there should be just one table ("MyElementDataTable"), with one column (NormalElement). If you set maxOccurs to something greater than 1, or unbounded, then the dataset has to contain an additional table to allow for more ...

Enter a cash receipt for a customer and save it to a batch. 2) Exit the batch and log back into it as though you are going to edit the information. 3) Go into the same cash receipt batch as a second user. Notice that you are not stopped from doing this even though another user is currently editing the batch. EXPECTED RESULTS: The second user would not be allowed into the cash receipt batch while the first user is editing the batch. ACTUAL RESULTS: The second user can enter the same cash receipt batch as the first user. This opens up the...

How to make a user appear in a particular address book
I have a user that appears in the Global Address List, but I'd like him to appear in one of the other smaller address lists. How do I set a user to appear in the list of my choice? Thanks.

By modifying the LDAP filter to ensure it picks up that user - does the user share any common attributes with other recipients on that address list?

Define inputs and outputs to make functions from sheets
Suggestion: Add a feature to Excel which allows a sheet to be defined as a function in another sheet, with names input cells, and named output cells. For instance, if I had a complex sheet named "estimator" which determined an inflated future cost of a room using inputs "seats" and "technology_level" and produced the result "future cost", let me call it from another sheet by setting a cell = "estimator(seats=50, technology_level=3, return future_cost)" or something of the sort. This would be a wonderful feature since it would allow more...

I'm not sure of the syntax (from the help page), but I'm guessing it would look something like: DLookup("[Field1 & Field2", "MyDomain", "Field1 = Value1 AND Field2 = Value2") Hope that makes sense. Does such a syntax or separate function exist? Thanks AFAIK, there is no function provided that doe...
