Got a database in SQL2005 that is basically a download of a daily flat text
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

I have Office 2004 and I can't install it on my new MacBook, because

The problem is the other licenses reside on either sold or failed hard

We have a workbook that about a dozen people get in and

not always locking the file, or it could be a problem with
other users not detecting the file is in use and
displaying the in use message, do you want to open a read

that or is it a network issue. Running XP pro, office xp
pro, and 2k server.
From my experience, it is a network issue. They need to unlock the file because Excel cannot.

I'm hoping to import my address book from my juno email on the web account to
Outlook, and then to export it to my new Hotmail account.
I seem to be botching it badly, so far. I was able to save my list to
'Recent Documents'. My efforts to COPY and Paste as an individual 'New
Contact' result in partial information and the email address, phone number,
etc. are missing.
Are there step-by-step instructions to accomplish what should be a
relatively easy task? Also, it looks as though Outlook has stripped all of my

When attempting to enter a particular serial number on a return we're getting
a message that "the serial number has already been entered for the selected

confirm that the serial number is not included on any un-posted transaction.
I've also confirmed in SOP10201 that it only appears once on an invoice that
has been posted, and that it is not in IV00200 at all.
Any ideas on what else could trigger this message?

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

I am importing a table from another DB that has job numbers and descriptions.
My database goes off of these job numbers for referencing.
Problem is the data is imported as centered in the field.
so I end up with [ 1213 ] in my job number field.
I do have a query that runs through this table and selects the data I need,
I believe that this query would be the place to fix the "center" align.
Though I am having troubles finding how to do this
I need to end up with job numbers that have no spaces ie. 
(brackets are showing beginning and end of the field).
