Using Relative path for XML data file?
Is there a way to specify a relative path to an XML data file imported into
Excel 2003? I am writing a web app that generates report data as XML for the
user to download to their local machine. This data is to be consumed by an
Excel reporting spreadsheet, which contains display-formatted tables and
charts that are mapped to various data fields in an XML Map, which is in turn
linked to the xml data file they will download.
The idea is the user only needs to download the data for updates, not the
whole spreadsheet. However, since I cannot predict the path where the user
will store their...Changing Cells and entering data in them

I have an Access 2003 front-end (mdb/mde) connected to a SQL Server 2000
back-end. SQL Server 2000 offers the ability to add extended properties
(such as a caption, for example) to objects (tables, columns, etc.) using a
stored procedure called sp_AddExtendedProperty, along with the ability to
retrieve the values of these extended properties via a function named
With fn_ListExtendedProperty, four columns can be returned/selected using a
Select statement: objtype, objname, name and value. The first three columns
returned are of datatype sysname, whil...Linking files 2 ways
I have a work book that is linked to another and vise versa.
Workbook A is where the input of data is made;
Workbook B has a link to the input from workbook A;
Workbook A retrieves the altered data back as a link.
Although this all works fine with both books open, I note that if I open
workbook A by itself, that the data it retrieves from Workbook B is not
updated . If However, both books are open, there's no problem. I thought
linked books were updated automatically if the Update remote references has
been selected?? But it appears that the second book is not updated until it

As Frank said, that's the maximum cols
But maybe you could try transposing your table / data ?

If so, try: http://tinyurl.com/2nmyy

I dont know if i need to ask this question here or in the Access section. I

fields. Access only shows me the first 255 fields. how can I change that so I

I have been trying to turn on the Recipient, Connection, and Sender filters.
I have gone to the Default SMTP Virtual Server and turned it on there without

the hit Apply, it tells me that I must manually turn the filtering on in the

That is a standard dialog box, it does not check to see if it is already

Now, I dont want to use SSL (security not that important) and i am told by

Note While RPC over HTTP does not require Secure Sockets Layer, you must

I think you also have to make certain that the dex.ini does NOT exist in the
program install location for GP or it will still look to that.
