Hi all,

I need to export 2500 contacts through Outlook Web Access on Exchange 2010.

I need to put them into a CSV/Excel

Please advise
I received one excel file, which was given to me.  When I click on the file, two files open up
File.xlsx and second file name: file.slsx2    Why is this happening and how do I stop it?

windows 10
office 365
So my computer crashed again & after loading Microsoft Money, I tried to restore all of my financial data.  Problem is, it's asking for a password to open the backup file, but I've never used passwords in Microsoft Money. EVER!

Computer is a Refurbished Dell 755 Desktop PC with Intel Core 2 Duo Processor, 4GB Memory, 1TB Hard Drive and Windows 10 Pro
In Excel 2013, I have an excel file with a macro that contains this code:

Function UserNameOffice() As String
    UserNameOffice = Application.UserName
End Function

And in cell A1 i have this code:

The first time I run the file, and receive the "SECURITY WARNING Macros have been disabled" prompt and click the "Enable content" button, the field updates properly and displays the correct name in Office. However, every time the file is opened after this the field will not update. I have to manually go into the cell's value, and hit enter on it to get it to update.

If I go into the Trust Center / Trusted Documents / checkbox Disable Trusted Documents - the code will update the field properly every time you click the "Enable Content".  Or if I Click the Clear button to remove all trusted documents, it will then work the first time opened only. So it seems like there is a bug within Trusted Documents causing this feature not to work.

Has anyone experienced this before or know a work around? This is not a problem in Excel 2016.
I will have 10 open conversation connections open in Lync

When I reboot I always need to manually reopen the connections.

Is there anyway to have the connections that were open before the reboot
persist after a reboot?

Hi Experts,

I would like to begin installation of TFS.  At this point I am only interested in the Shelving/Unshelving part of TFS.  I have seen this working in another company I was working for and would like to do the same...

Don't think it is installed...
AS one can see seems I don't have it installed.

I have SQL Server 2014 and Visual Studio 2012 currently installed.  And would require that TFS supports both when user goes through TFS.

This is not local and will be on the share...

So I would get this information from you and pass this to my share team to have it installed.  I am sure they already know how to install.  I just need from you a starting point.

What do I need to do first?

Please help and thanks...

How can I merge multiple rows into one cell delimited by a semi-colon  - Thank you
I cannot open our main SharePoint site, getting the error above. Have restarted everything. We can get to main central administration, just not our site. This is a new SP install.  I think it is IIS but not sure where to start in there. Please help me in the right direction.
Countless times I have deleted junk and other unwanted or no-longer-wanted emails. I have then gone on to "purge" them under the "recover" option. All then appear to be purged, since the folder is reported as "empty".

However going back later and checking whether this has really been done, reveals that all - (including so-called previously deleted) emails have appeared again in the Deleted folder.

Any informed explanations for this anyone ?

Thanks, krakatoa.

Client uses Word 2016/Outlook 2016 has an Office 365 subscription. The spell checker keeps forgetting learned words.

File has been deleted and recreated. Rogue entries deleted from registry. Re-creation of RoamingCustom.dic has been invoked through software via Proofing Tools set up menu.

Word 2016 open, spell checker taught new word. RoamingCustom.dic file time stamp changes indicating file has been touched. Outlook 2016 also open, e-mail composed and newly added word is spelled correctly and not flagged as wrong.

Outlook 2016 e-mail composer using RoamingCustom.dic also taught new words. Time stamp of RoamingCustom.dic modified and Word 2016 also knows newly learned word.

Both apps, open at same time with AppData/....RoamingCustom.dic file being modified to prove both applications are teaching the new word to the shared dictionary file. So both applications are clearly touching the same file modifying it, updating it and using the shared file.

Works for a few days then stops working. What is causing the failure?

Many thanks.
If I have a spreadsheet of data whereby column A gives me the name of someone, and column E gives me the answer 'yes' to liking ice cream; can I populate a new worksheet with the name provided in column A, provided the condition is met that Column E is 'yes'?
Hi experts,
Pls check the attached sample excel sheet. would like to get ur help.

Sample sheet.
1. I have 3 rows of data in several columns
2. I also populated Column O "Expected Final Result" on how I would like to get the values aggregated
3. Basically scan each row by every column and summaries on the final "Expected Final Result" column
4. "Expected Final Result" column position might change, so better to have relative cell
5. Since trying to automate this. Is it possible via excel formula? or vba?

Thanks in advance

Dear Experts,

I have a user which started to have an issue with opening ppt files this week over vpn.
The strange thing is it's only happening with ppt files, pptx are opening fine.
If I copy the ppt file from the Shared drive to the desktop it takes 3-4 Seconds to copy and around 10 seconds to open.
If I open the same ppt file directly from a network share it takes around 3-4 Minutes to open or Powerpoint is even crashing.
The same files are opening fast when on the Office network.
I'm running out of ideas what could be the issue.
I tried the following until now:

- repair office
- Adjust MTU of the Wifi adapter
- start Powerpoint in safe mode
- disable all Add-ins
- Add network share in the trust center to trusted locations (including subfolders)

It's still the same after all this.

the following is used:
- Windows 7 64 Bit
- Office 2013
- Cisco Anyconnect

Best Regards and many thanks in advance for any input,

We started to implementing Continuous Integration in our company and for one of our products, we implemented the gated check-in in the MAIN branch, this way it will only be committed to TFS if it'is successful. Whenever we got a build error we were used to connecting to the build server and try to build it manually for debugging process only.

In our last code change, we noted that the source that was copied into the build agent folder did not have our last changes in the src folder, even though the result in the bin folder was right.

One of our theories is that it will create a shelveset that contains a merge of latest TFS version and the latest checked in changes, and it will build in this context. It would explain the outdated src folder and the updated bin folder.

Is it the normal gated check-in behavior or is it a bug? How does it work in detail when interacting with the build agent?

Thanks in advance
