Reporting from Project Server
I dont know if i need to ask this question here or in the Access section. I
have an ODBC connection to the Project Server database so I can make reports
through Access. Access' limit of 255 fields per table is causing me some
trouble. for example, the MSP_VIEW_PROJ_PROJECTS_ENT table has well over 255
fields. Access only shows me the first 255 fields. how can I change that so I
can see all the fields in that table?

You can use the INT function. This 'rounds down' any number to th

Is there a way to specify a relative path to an XML data file imported into

Excel reporting spreadsheet, which contains display-formatted tables and
charts that are mapped to various data fields in an XML Map, which is in turn
linked to the xml data file they will download.
The idea is the user only needs to download the data for updates, not the

Hello, can you help me please
Cell B1 contains a complex mathematical formula which requires (in several
places) a number from cell A1.
Cell A1 can contain any integer number, but it is usually the same (30).
I would like to be able to leave cell A1 empty, and only enter a number when
it is not 30 ,
ie the default value of A1 is 30, unless specified.
How do I go about this ?
Should I look at conditional formatting, or put lots of IF functions into an
already complex formula?
Thank as always

Note While RPC over HTTP does not require Secure Sockets Layer, you must

I use CorelDraw, it is simply a matter of moving the pivot point to the corner.

But it's a bit tedious getting that wrong useless error message from VS2002
