Multiple Routing Groups

Up to this point we have used a single routing group for our enterprise.  It 
now appears to make more sense to create multiple routing groups, so 
outbound can route through local gateways, and not traverse the country 
needlessly.  While I am researching this, are there any gotcha's or other 
experiences or things to be aware of when switching to multiple routing

You don't need routing groups to manage egress points.

Small numbers of routing groups are okay, but don't needlessly
complicate the design. If your nodes are connected by WANs it might
make sense to make a routing group of each node, but if the WAN has
sufficient bandwidth it might not be necessary.

If you put an SMTP connector at each site pointing out through the local 
gateway and assign it a lower cost than the inter-site SMTP connector, 
outbound email should use the local gateway, if available, but route across 
the WAN if necessary.

Multiple DBs sharing tables
Can we set up multiple databases to share information like customers or items. We have five companies setup in five dbs and the item list is similar enough that we could use one list and customers may be repeated across companies as well. if I could "point" all dbs to a single customer and item table we would only have to enter info 1 time. When we moved over to GP we loaded all of the information from each company into an excel workbook and then that was loaded into G/P. That gave us the ability to clean things up!!

Not able to import multiple Fidelity accounts
I have two Fidelity accounts, a brokerage and an Educational Account. When I try to set up these accounts in Money 2006, none of the Education Account information is imported. Money 2006 sets up the two accounts, but there is no balance or transaction history for the Educational Account. It seems as though Money sees there is an account but is not able to access anything. It looks like I'll have to enter and update all Educational transactions manually. Any suggestions on how to resolve this? Thanks, John Money 2006 Deluxe, IE 6, XP SP2.

Outlook 2002 views grouping/sorting
I noticed a (irritating) difference between Outlook 2000 and 2002 definition of folder Views. Back in 2000, you could set to group by Conversation Topic, which lumped all emails with the same email subject together. Now it was still sorted by date first, meaning the subject-topic with the most recent received (descending) email with be positioned on top. So it was going by Sort, then Group. Now in 2002, the priority has been reversed. It is grouped first then sorted by date. Meaning the email subject with the first in alphabetical order will ALWAYS be positioned on top, even when its latest ...

Multiple Item query
I've read a few posts on this query and it looks like creating a table where I input the item numbers in it and linking it to the query seems to be a good way to get a lot of items in a query. Now what If I have hundreds of numbers I want to look up? do I input all 100 numbers into the table? Or what if it's like 10 numbers but I want create seperate queries for different groups of numbers, should I have 1 table for one group of numbers? What would be the easiest way for a novice to do this? It is easier to fill the table with just the values you need for the query you want to run, t...

Multiple results with Count
Hello Everybody, In Access 2003, I am trying to get multiple results in a query using Count with the same column and table as my source of data. So far I have been unsuccessful in bringing two results of Count onto a same query. For example: I have a list of amounts paid to different employees in a column. I want to count the rows base on two different criteria (i) rows with amounts more than $1000 each and (ii) rows with amounts less than $500. I want to get the results of these two criteria in same query but in two different fields with distinct names. What would be the structure of ...

No Group dialog box appear when working in Pivot Table

Linking a multiple spreadsheets to a master spreadsheet
I have looked for the solution to this, but have had no luck. I need to link multiple excel spreadsheets to a master spreadsheet, where each sheet on the master would represent one external spreadsheet. If the info on the external spreadsheets are changed, the master should reflect those changes and visa versa. I am using Excel 2007. If someone could point me in the right direction that would be great. Thanks! Excel doesn't work like this.

max no group
Hi , Is there any solution for Max without grouping? There are different data and only one distinct on the row to display for the max value. For example, data are as : 1, 2 , 6 , 7 and another column to find for max value here is for relation to it : 3, 4, 9, 2 so the only max of them is 6, 9 . I try it on the expression of max but there is no other option on another to find relation of it of the column expression max. Thanks any idea? If there is no GROUP, the MAX occur over the column for all the records of the table. If your data is like: f1 f2 1 3 2 ...

Loading Data into Multiple sheets in 1 book

macro to delete multiple rows
I have recorded, then modified, the following macro, which unprotects the sheet, aks if you are sure you want to delete the row, deletes the current row, copies down a cell in column A that numbers the row, and protects the sheet. Works fine, but if the user wants to delete not only the current row, but multiple rows below it also, the macro must be repeated. How can I accomplish deleting multiple rows, as indicated by the user? For example, rows 18 thru 20, or 29 thru 33, etc, or of course, just the current row, with the message box prompting the user for the number of rows to delete. Thanks...
