#### Compare one year to another, but just YTD

```Let's see if I can explain this. I have two sheets, the first sheet is
labeled 2005 and the second one is 2006.  In A1 thru A12 on both sheets is
Jan, Feb, Mar, etc.  On 2005 B1 thru B12 we have monthly values. On 2006 B1
thru B7 (as we are just now going into Aug.) we have monthly values. In B13
on both sheets are totals. The problem is I can't compare on year to the
next as the total on the 2005 sheet is for the full year. I'd like to add
Label in A14 that says 2005 YTD and have a formula in B14 that looks at how
many cells in the range B1 thru B12 on 2006 have values then sum that same
number of cells from the B column on sheet 2005. This way I'd be able to
compare 2006's YTD with the same YTD of 2005.

```

```I modified the formula to I could copy it to other columns

=SUM(OFFSET('2005'!B\$1,,,COUNT('2006'!B\$1:B\$12)+1,1)) This worked
=SUM(OFFSET('2005'!C\$1,,,COUNT('2006'!C\$1:C\$12)+1,1)) This did not I had to
remove the +1 so it looks like this
=SUM(OFFSET('2005'!C\$1,,,COUNT('2006'!C\$1:C\$12),1)) What am I missing?? I
need to copy this to the right for columns B thru K

Another problem is that there are 6000 of them! I have thought that maybe I can bring them into db2 using copy/past for individual columns and place them where they should go in the new db2.

Moving Store to another machine..

Thanks, Derek Hi, Derek. No, there are various attributes that need to be updated. Your best bet is probably just to move mailbox from the existing store to the store on the new server. Doing so will automatically update the client (MAPI) profiles (leaving the old server up long enough for users to logon and be redirected, then caching the new server). Additionally, Exchange 2003 provides multi-threaded move ...
