Office XP Exel
Scenario: User's A,B, C, and D all have access to an excel XLS on a 2003
server. Users A & B have modify rights, users C&D only have read rights. If
user A updates the file, the general tab in properties reflect the exact
time the file was modified. After user A saves and closes the file, user D
goes in. The changes are there, but in the properties general tab, the
modify date in an old date (probably the actual creation date). Is this
normal ? Any idea's ?
...Update one table from another
I am trying to update one table that has one record for each employee(table
1) with available vacation time. The other table records every time off
request(table 2) and how much time they want off. I have the update query
and it works fine. The problem is that everytime it is ran every requested
time off amount(from table2) is subtracted from the available time(table1)
again and again. I want the records for requested time(table2) to update the
employee available time off(table1) only once, but keep the records on the
table as that is the basis for a report.

...Creating a table
There's probably an easier way to do it but...
I have a series of numbers in column A (150 in all) and a series of letters
in column B (22 in all). In total there are 4800 rows.
What I am trying to do is create a table with the number down the left hand
side and the letters across the top. In each cell within the table I need
to count how many times the combination of number/letter appears. Eg:
A B C
201 0 2 2
202 3 0 1
203 3 6 4
I tried combining the number/letter into a single text field using the

This is my third request for help and have yet to get a response, although I
did receive a response by someone else having this problem too so I suspect
it isn't just my clients.
Since doing the 2008 year end update the direct deposit ach file only
includes the company amount of the first batch included. If you include more
than one batch the subsequent amounts are not included. It includes all the
employee amounts from all batches, but not the company amount. The reports
that print from GP are correct, but the actual ach file is incorrect.

Does anyone know of a tool that can scan all queries in a database and find

I have a assets database (rather uncreatively named "Assets"). I use a form

"Manufacturer" field (combo box name "Manufacturers_ID) on this form is a
lookup to a Manufacturers table. What I want to happen is when I enter an

the new entry to the underlying table, or to cancel and select an item from
the list. I have no trouble with the MsgBox command itself. What I don&...Keeping a table in a form editable and checking that fields are filled in before allowing a save

I know this can be done, but haven't figured out how yet. I have what
basically is a summary report that my sql comes up with for the detail
rows. I want to total these rows in the report and display
immediately below the detail section. I don't really want to group
anything, but want to treat the whole detail section as a group.
That being said, how can I get a "group footer" on the designer so I
can add my total columns. If I use "sorting and grouping", it starts
grouping things and that is not what I want.

Has anyone successfully manually updated a non-English supported 5.5 to

Mail and contacts were all exported to PST files, and then imported to 2003.
However, although the text of the messages is fine (English and Russian),
the text for contact names and message subjects gets gorched if they
contained any Russian text.
Does anyone know the correct sequence to follow to take messages and
contacts in Russian (or other languages) from 5.5 to 2003, while retaining
the non-English subject lines and contact names?
