Changing IS Transaction Logs Location

I need to change the location of my Information Store 
Transaction Logs. Whoever set up my mail server put them 
on a 1GB drive which is filling up every 10 days. I have 
plenty of room on another drive. Can I simply use the 
Database Paths Tab and change the location there? Will the 
system transfer the old logs to that location? Are they 
any dangers in doing this?  Thanks in advance.

Yes, this can be done via the properties of the storage group: that's what 
it was designed for.  There should be no problem in doing this.

Jim,

A side note on this question...you mentioned that your transaction logs are 
filling the drive every 10 days or so.  This makes me think that you either 
are not doing backups or there is a problem with your backups.  If you are 
doing an Exchange aware backup, your backup program should be purging your 
log files.

How can I change the column order using VBA
I have written code that appends data to a table. Occasionally, I need to add more columns. To do this I am using a bubble sort to compare with my existing table weather i already have the column or not. Because of this, I make my new table in alphabetical order, but I would like to be able to reorder the columns into something other than alphabetical. Is there a column order property for tables? Any suggestions? Thank you. Balbina wrote: > I have written code that appends data to a table. Occasionally, I need to > add more columns. To do this I am using a bubble sort...

Personal workbook does not save when it changes
I am using XL 2002. I created a Personal workbook, put it in the XL startup folder, and hid it. But when I add a macro to it, I am not prompted to save it when I shut down XL. Why? Thanks, Billy When you start Excel and click on Windows - Unhide, does the Personal.xls file appear? Or is Unhide grayed out? I don't know how you created that file but you should let Excel create it and place it. To create the file, click on Tools - Macro - Record New Macro. When it asks where to place the macro, specify Personal.xls. I know it doesn't exist. Click OK. That's ...

Changing right side scrollbar bar row number box?
Hi, In excel when you click and hold the right hand scroll bar and move up and down the worksheet it displays the row number you are on. Is there any way to change that to pick up the value within column a instead? Many thanks, Rick I don't think so. In fact, when you upgrade to xl2k, those numbers disappear and the worksheet will scroll live--you'll see the worksheet change right before your eyes. (It works that way in xl2002.

Pages keep changing position
I recently had Microsoft Office 2007 installed on my computer at work, and am having awful problems with Publisher 2007. I produce a multi-page newsletter which I originally created in Publisher 2000 and have imported into 2007. However, when I am in the middle of working on it, the pages seem to move around by themselves, so that page 1 may end up on page 7 and page 3 suddenly appear on the front cover! This makes me reluctant to save even the tiniest change in case other pages have moved spontaneously while I was working. Nothing in particular seems to trigger this movement. Has anyb...

Print preview in Publisher 2003 changes doc from landscape to portrait

Exmerge generating HUGE log files
Hello, I'm running Exmerge on a couple systems as a brick-level backup of the private information store. Occasionally, when the network connection between the Exchange server and the file server that contains the PST files gets disrupted, Exmerge will continue to run and generate HUGE log files (in excess of 20Gb) for each thread that got disrupted. I have logging set to 0 in the .ini file. How can logging be TRULY turned off, since it's obviously doing something stupid here? Thanks, Ty Isnt "1" the minimum setting in the Exmerge.ini file?

how do you change the data order in a graph without modifying the table? I know it is possible if you change your table, but it is not very convenient. Thanks You can change the order of the series: double click a series, then rearrange the series in the Series Order tab. If you need to change the left-right order of categories along the X axis of a chart, you pretty much have to modify the table.
