Outllok Rule Creation based on Greater Than Numbers...

Program: Outlook 2003

He Everyone,
My boss has requested the creation of a particular type of rule that has me 
stumped. He receives many quote requests per day but we are only interested 
in them if they are BELOW a certain quantity, i.e. we would be interested in 
fulfilling an order for less than 1000 but not more than that. I have tried 
filtering based on "Specific words in the body" with entries such as 
">1000," (hoping Outlook would know to treat the entry as a number above 
1000, also tried "1,***," (hoping it would recognize as a number 
w/wildcards), also "1000," "1000," etc, etc, etc... Of course, all the 
filter sees are the actual numbers/symbols entered. In other words it will 
block ">1000" but not 1000, or it will block "1,***" but not 1000.

This is what I have in mind: Check messages when they arrive?From 
People...?With specific words in the body?>1000(greater than 1000 sans text 
in parenthesis)?Move it to the specified folder... and I could take it from 
here        :)

So the non-vervbose question boils down to: Is there a way to get the 
Outllok 2003 Rules and Alerts to filter emails based on a "greater than" 
quantity of actual numbers in the email?

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Fingers crossed,

Historical customer item numbers?
I posted this an hour ago, but it disappeared(!).... We have customers that change their SKU numbers frequently. So, physical item #A might have SKU #1 today, but SKU #2 next month. We need to show the correct SKU on our invoices to them. We were going to use the Sales Item Cross Reference table (SOP60300), but we realized this is a "live" value - that is, if we reprint an invoice it will show the latest SKU number, not necessarily the one that was originally invoiced. Does anyone know how we could deal with this? Does version 10 have any new fields in the SOP Order line tab...

Move emails automatically from Inbox to other folder, based on dat
Some of my users have thousands of emails in their Inbox which slow down performance. Is there a tool with which I can automatically move items older than 30 days to a different folder in Outlook?

Number Formatting #10
I have a user who's numbers in excel are defaulting to a decimal even if you format the cell for number zero decimal places. For example if she enters 15 it will enter .15. This happens on every excel document she opens and if you open the same documents on another PC they work fine. I have even tried to reinstall excel on the PC and it does not correct the Issue. Please help with suggestions. For a work around I have her entering 15. But that is an extra key stroke.

Replace numbers with time
I downloaded "sunrise/sunset" data into an Excel 2003 spreadhseet but the times came as numbers, like "1622". I want to convert that to "16:22" but the format cell option does not work. It converts it to a date and a time (noon). Since the times change every few cells, search and replace is inefficient. I tried searching for 16** and replacing them with 16:** but Excel took that liberally. Is there a wildcard command to replace these numbers: 1622, 1623, 1624 with 16:22, 16:23, 16:24? =TIME(INT(A1/100),MOD(A1,100),0) -- Kind regards, N...

How do I generate random, non-repeating numbers that don't change?

Dialog-based app made modeless #2
Hi all, We made a dialog-based application (which used to run as modal dialog) modeless. All worked fine, except that tabs and edit <Ctrl> mnemonics don't work. I found an article (MSDN - Ask Dr. GUI #46) which says I need to explicitly call IsDialogMessage inside the main message loop. I overrode Run(), ProcessMessageFilter and PreTranslateMessage() in the app class, but tabbing on the dialog doesn't break there. Similarly I overrode the dialog's PreTranslateMessage(), but tabbing didn't bring me there either. Any ideas? Regards, Diana ...

Sorting Rules

So I am wondering if anyone knows a way for Outlook 2003 to sort the rules in alphabetical order sans doing it manually. It would save a lot of time. Thanks. No. --� Milly Staples [MV...

Sorting "text" numbers
I am sorting a list of numbers (actually telephone extensions) which need to be formatted as text. When I sort them I get two separate lists starting over again. e.g. 1000,1001,1004,2003,3456,...,0456,1003,2455,... I've check for leading spaces, format differences etc. but this is not the problem.

Do your sort, then select the first group of cells and run this macro: Sub MakeText() For Each myCell In Selection myCell.Value = &q...

There is no such concept as "running an application inside another application" unless the application being run "inside" is an OLE Server application and the application it is running inside is an OLE Client application. In that case, the debugger should be able to work on the server application. You have to attach the debugge...

How do I sum numbers up to an certain threshold in Excel?
I'm sure the answer is easy, but I can't figure it out. I'm trying to sum one column up to a preset threshold (like 60) and then want to sum up corresponding entries, but I only want the entries that coresspond to the entries that don't exceed 60. So far I've create a GPA calculator where you place credit hours in one column, a letter grade in another, and then it uses a vlookup function to find out how many points that letter grade is worth, and then uses sum functions to sum up the points and the credit hours. It then divides the two to get a GPA. I'm stuck...

Remove Duplicate
I used OCR software to read the Names and addresses off ~500k images. For each image we received ID and Account Number combinations that correspond to a Name and Address. Within the data set there are several examples of each ID, Account, Name and Address combination. We are interested in removing the duplicates and only having the distinct records. The software is not 100% accurate so the Names and Addresses can be different from result to result for the same ID/Account. My thought was to use a majority voting approach. Below is a link to an example of the results. ...
