can't save changes to workbook; ready only
We use and Microsoft Excel Workbook as our database and I am the primary
person that makes changes and those changes are saved on the other two
people's copies who work in the office.
This morning when I tried to save changes it would not let me and changed my
copy and their copies of the workbook to a [read only] [shared]
[compatibility mode] database.xls
This when I clicked save a box came up stating that there over 265 persons
using the database at this time. Which can't be possible since we only have 3
people in our office who use it only a daily basis.

Outlook folder list, and then somehow make a list of all incoming email to
the server to certian addresses to be forwarded here..

My computer crashed but not before I saved my Outlook folder. The problem is
how do I import all of the data (emails, contacts, calendar) into the right
places? The old was 2003; the new is 2007. As of now, the old "Outlook"
folder is sitting on my new Desktop, which probably doesn't make the most
sense. The main issue is that all of my contacts are listed as "Personal
Contacts" when I really want to make them just "Contacts" in general and
create a subset of truly personal contacts. Thanks.

This is the error a user receives when he tries to copy one cell into
another made up of 3 merged cells.
Sometimes it works and other times it doesn't.
Is this a fluke?
Copying one cell to a merge of three cells should work.
Are you "sure" it is only one cell that is being copied each time?
Maybe "sometimes" it is one cell and "other times" more than one.

Click once on the particular bar where you wish to have
different color, system will select all bars in the chart.
Click once again, the system will select only the bar
that you are clicking on. Call out Format Data Point and

Then you join that table to the current table in a query on the CHSTAT values.
