How do I change the "and" to "or" with multiple Rules (and Alerts)?

In Outlook you can configure rules in the "Rules and Alerts" Wizard by
checking various options such as "from people or distribution list",
"with specified words in the subject", etc. etc.  When you check 2 or
more of these , they are listed with "and" between each rule, but I
need them to be listed with "or", how can I change that?

you can't change it. Outlook only does AND between rules. You'll need to 
make separate rules.

Change Icon for XLT and resulting XLS
Hello, I have created an XLT which is used very frequently at my workplace. There are multiple files on our drive made using this template, and I need a way for them to differentiate themselves from other excel files. After many failed attempts to convince my coworkers to save their resulting spreadsheets using a simple naming convention, I come to this group. Is it possible, at all, for the spreadsheets that are created when the XLT is opened to have a unique icon (I have already created the icon)?

I'm trying to put together a production spreadsheet for mechanical manufacturing that figures out a length of one piece of material based on other dimensions. It's for storm shutter parts and the cut dimensions need to be calculated from the field measures.

On POS (not RMS) Instructions for Changing Noniventory Item, Price, Cost, and Volume
We drop ship noninventory items to customers, and when the price, cost, or capacity of an item changes, we want to change it so it is reflected accurately on invoices. However, when we attempt to change the cost, price, and description, a message pops up stating "The item description is already in use." Of course it's already in use, we just want to edit it. Nothing else has changed, same Item Number, same Department, same Category; we're just not permitted to edit it. I can't create a copy, because they would have the same Item Number (UPC) and POS doesn't permit...

Format changes to header and footer
Is it possible to apply a formatting change (i.e. indents & spacing) to the footers of ALL SECTIONS of a sectioned document at the same time, without screwing up the rest of the document? Doing it one section at a time is a bit tedious. I suppose I should have checked it when I started the document, but we know what they say about hindsight.... It can be done with the use of a macro such as: Dim i As Long, j As Long, k As Long With ActiveDocument For i = 1 To .Sections.Count For j = 1 To .Sections(i).Footers.Count With .Sections(i).Footers(j).Ra...

rules and the new mail indicator
There is a certain type of email I receive periodically, that I never read. (Specifically, I co-admin a mail list, and whenever some idiot spammer tries to post spam to the list, I get a notification.) What I would like is for receipt of these notices to be invisible, I don't want to see them in my inbox and I don't want the little envelope in the tray to show up, so I created a rule, and set it to: clear the Message Flag and delete it and mark it as read They do get deleted, but annoyingly, the envelope in the tray is shown. I added "mark it as read" hoping that...

SBS 2008 Alerting and Reporting
Hi all, In SBS 2003, I easily setup various log files to include with the daily Monitoring Reports I get emailed to me. In SBS 2008, I have not figured out how to do this. I figured out how to add additional event data/alerts from the event log (via the custom XML files) and I know I can pick/choose different 'sections' of the log to include/ not include (via 'Properties' of the reports). Does anyone know how I can attach log files to the Monitoring Reports? Thanks. Hilde I don't know that answer, but there are some resources here: http://www.code...

Multiple OWAScratchPad and StoreEvents system folders

hello, what I'm about to to is a developing WDDM driver to support external device such as USB monitor. So I started researching through debugging with R200 samples to understand display framework, and seems quite confusing. here's few questions. 1. as far as I understood, to support multimonitors, let's say we've got two monitors and to use another as extended monitor, WDDM display driver should build multiple present paths(here two paths, for example). So I suspected at first that display driver had to create and add present path for newly attached monitor with ...

Access Report Headings annual change name and location
