files and creating tables from them.
The log.ldf file is frikkin huge. It's over 146GB and I don't need this, I
have storage issues. How do I shorten down this file and keep it small
Have you read about managing the transaction log in the Books Online?
How big is your database?
What recovery model are you in?
What kinds of backups are you doing, and how frequently?
If you are not in SIMPLE recovery, and you don't back up your log, it will
continue to grow. Even...Folders disappearing after compacting file cabinet
Twice, now, I've lost a good chunk of e-mail I've saved in different folders
because I've compacted my file cabinet. Anything with a file folder named
with E or beyond gets dumped. A through D only remains. Any ideas as to
what's going on? Thanks!
Did you compact or run ScanPST.EXE? I've never heard of a compact deleting
valid data unless, of course, the file was damaged before running the
compact. I hate to ask but do you have a backup of your PST from before this

news:...Outlook delegate-mailbox deletion problem
This sounds like an easy one however, haven't found resolution yet.
User B reported to User A and added A to his delegation for being
copied on all meeting request replies (done from Outlook 2000). All
was well until User A left the company and mailbox was subsequently
archived and deleted. Ever since the mailbox deletion, all attendees
accepting a meeting request from User B receive an NDR referencing
inability to deliver reply to User A's mailbox. The typical answer
would be to open User B's Outlook app, goto delegates and remove User

I wonder if anyone can help me with a VBA routine to check for the presence

The file is saved on a dialy basis in the format "userfile_run_YYYYMMDD.xls"

It means that the program you're trying to run is 16-bit. There is NO 16-bit

My HD failed but I had a backup of my Office XP Pro personal file folder
with a lot of emails I needed. The file is about 128MB in size. I put a new
HD in and installed Office 2003 Pro. When I go to open the old file Outlook
2003 says that the file "is not a personal folders file". (It was backed up
to a CD ROM prior to the crash so the source file should be good.) I really
don't want to uninstall Office 2003 and put back Office XP. Any idea why
2003 won't open the file and how to work around that? Many thanks in advance
to anyone who knows the solution. Alan.

We have a problem where a couple of users are moving
emails from their Sent Items to folders that are
subfolders of their Inbox. However, random emails are
moving to the Deleted Items instead. The users have no
rules set up, and there is no limit on mailbox size for
users. I know it's easy to dismiss them as having made a
mistake, but one of the users is pretty competent and has
in fact had this problem in the past. Has anyone
experienced this problem?
...CRM Bulk Delete of Activities
We are new to CRM, and in the "testing" phase of implementation.
Our marketing group has used smart lists and quick campaign which results in
30,000 open activies (emails). We can respond/delete/acknowledge them 250
at a time via the activities view. Clearly waiting for screen refreshes 120
times would waste a lot of time. Is there a way to "respond" to activies at
a campaign level or in bulk?

I opened Outlook this AM and it was as if I had never used
it. My created folders were gone, only the default folders
were there and they all were empty. I tried to open the
proper .pst file and found one with 91,360kb, but whether
I try to open it through Outlook/File/Open or simply
double-click the file from Windows Explorer I get the same
results: ghost-town Outlook, empty folders, etc., like I'd
never been there before.
Try running the Inbox Repair Tool against your .PST file to see if it finds
any errors. Search your drive for a file called scanpst.exe and run it.

It isn't clear what you mean by "selectively" delete the rows. If
you just want to delete every other row, use code like

For RowNdx = 30573 To 3 Step -2
