Is this possible to have the 97 users with 97 front end, 2000 users
with 2000 front end, 2002 users with 2002 front end, and 2003 users

We are currently planning on upgrading workstations with either 2000,
2002, 2003. the criteria for the specific version will depend on the
IT department. I would like to know if we have several different

We are testing Outlook 2003 at our office now and there is
one very frustrating "feature" that is bugging all of us.
When we create a new e-mail message and type in the first
name of a person from the global address book and hit ctrl-
k to check the name...we get a response that Outlook
doesn't recognize the name and there are "no suggestions".
The only way Check Name will successfully resolve the name
is if we type it last name first (ie, Gates, Bill). This
was not the case in Office XP or Outlook 2000. You could

I have a chart which should get a title. However, this should be partly be

"counted with 5%"
5% should be taken from the cell and used in the title.
Is this possible?
Yes it's possible but all of the chart title needs to be in the cell. So you
may need to use a helper cell and concatenate text and value.

When you enter "8-10" in a cell, that's not strictly a number but Excel
