If so, can I can I configure one of the pst files to get e-mail from

Yes, you can create multiple PSTs. I keep mine stored in

Is there an easy way to send a workbook via email based on the date an
time? Our company uses excel for some of our reporting and rather then
having the reps remember to send the workbook i'd like to have it send
itself automatically - say on Saturdays or Sundays.

I have a user using a shared workbook and gets an error
everytime she does this ONE specific change. She deletes
a line and then saves and gets a message that
says, "EXCEL.exe has generated errors and will be shutdown
by Windows... blah blah blah". If she makes anyother
type of changes it saves just fine. I also had another
user do the SAME change and that person also got that
error message. When the file is changed to "Not Shared"
then the line is deleted it saves fine also. The problem
is obviously with the file itself and that is shared out.
can anybody ...Locking cell color while allowing data changes in cell
In excel 2000, I created an attendance worksheet for my
classes.(Alphabetized names down left vertical column. Dates across
top of horizontal row.) I added a different color to all cells in
every other row to make for easier reading of each student's name and
absences. Every other row stays with a white background.
My question: I wondered if it was possible to lock row colors while
allowing data to change on top of them. If a new student is added to
my class in alphabetical order, the alternating color pattern is often
lost. It is a pain to rechange row and cell colors.

In version GP 10 I have clients pointed to a test server. When production

Any help is appriciated.
As long as your production server has THE SAME level service pack as your
clients and THE SAME third party products all you need to do is repoint your
ODBC to the production server.

I have a query that pulls 2 fields from a table. One field (ReportName) is

So I need to the code to enter in "On Change" for my form, so whatever report
is selected, it opens up.
Please help. Thank you in advance.

I have a shared resource, say a file which is to be accessed between
threads. There are say 20 Read threads and 1 Write thread. When the Write
thread is writing into the file, the Read threads should be blocked, and
1 read thread reads, the Write thread should be blocked. The Read threads
read simultaneously, but only say 5 at a time. What kind of synchronization
mechanism can I use for this?
You can create a mutex a adquire it when a read operation start, check it

Karl was great in helping me get to this point with dates, now I'm wondering
if we can take it 1 step further?
For Activity Dates prior to 2/1/2007 they are using a normal reporting year

So for example prior to 2/1/2007

So, this is probably really easy, but I just want to ask and see if I may be
missing something here. Some data on vendor numbers changed. Let’s say IBM
used to have a vendor number 12345 and now it’s vendor number is 56789. I
can identify IBM as IBM, but I really want to use the number, not the name.
Should I set up a table that ties the numbers together, so that Access knows
12345 = 56789? Or, should I do some kind of Update Query and change all
incidences of 12345 to be 56789? Or, is there some other, method, like a

Is there a place where I can still get version 2000? I've been looking, but
all I can find are updates and the 2007 trial. My computer can't run 2007.
*If* if can be had, try something like eBay. (I wouldn't buy software that
way but that's just my preference.) You may find you have better luck
finding a leftover copy of Pub 2003 from some online retailers. (I actually
prefer that over 2000.)

If the data is in exactly the same position in the two worksheets you could
copy/paste one's data to a new worksheet and then copy the second's, doing
an Edit, Paste Special, Subtract on top of the first's data. This is
admittedly crude but it is easy to do.

I have noticed that each time I import data into an Excel spreadsheet
via a macro, a new named range (for the same range) is created. This
does not pose a problem, but after a while, I'll have a huge number of

and how can I stop this? I noticed in the recorded macro, there was a

but it just renamed the range "ExternalData_5". The next one was
