Excel help says it should be a tab under tools, but I can't see it in
my version.

I would appreciate any help.

Thanks.  I suppose they made it an add-in since most users wouldn't be
using it that often.

This would be true.

No point in having the overhead if you don't need it.

Multiple GAL's question
I have created mutiple GAL's in Exch2K3, and am wondering how long do I wait before they appear in either Outlook or OWA? Thanks Hi, Are you referring to GALs or Address lists, there is a slight difference. Users can only see one GAL, but many address lists. If you have created multiple GALs and have not done anything to restrict permissions on the Default GAL, then users will continue to see the Default GAL only. Also Outlook 2003 in Cached mode will take at least 24 hours to change unless you specify a custom update schedule. The change for OWA users should be fairly imm...

Query calculated field question
hello I have a query with fields ID, Level, a1, a2, a3, a4,......... a40. The fields a1 to a40 will either be blank or will have an integer value from 1 to 5.

CRM 4.0 upgrade questions
Hi all, Now that we're all upgraded to CRM 4.0, questions have popped up: - Can one move the folders in the CRM Outlook client around, like Explorer folders? This was possible in 3.0. - Company information of Contacts in Outlook is supposed to synchronize now with CRM but it does not. I made sure the necessary checkbox is checked in CRM --> Options. This worked fine in a 4.0 test environment. - I know only 1 PC can be the sync PC with CRM but I wonder if a Citrix client can be a sync PC as well, in addition to a physical PC. - This is question for 3.0 and 4.0: We have a new custom ent...

Report Writer Question #4
