  • I am a complete newbie and I have been looking up resources to help me create a simple line graph. I have tried Excel exposure, various videos, and yet those didn't help with the problem I am having.


    Everytime I highlight the two columns, it puts both of them in one axis. I can't seem to fix this. Any advice would be much appreicated. I am trying to make column A the x-axis and column B the y-axis.


     File attached in text document. I can't seem to upload the actual Excel file to the browse tab.

    I used the legacy text file import assistant for getting the data into the Excel sheet. The steps...


    1. From the ribbon, call Data / Get External Data / From Text and open the text file.
    2. In first step of the text wizard assistant, choose Delimited and click on Next.
    3. In the second step of the wizard activate the checkbox Space, as the delimiters is a space in the text file.
    4. The preview of the wizard shows you a vertical line between the values froms the columns.
    5. Goto the next step of the wizard.
    6. If your system has a dot as decimal separator, you don't need to do anything in the third step.
    7. My system is a German one, so I had to click on the Advanced button and invert the decimal and thousands separators
    8. Click on Finish in the wizard, choose a location on your sheet and click on Ok.
    9. You're done.

    During a presentation I saw that sharing a Form has been rolled out. This was something I was waiting for. Thank you!


    Am I right that you always have to save the link to get to a shared form?


    I saw the behaviour that after opening a shared form that the form was listed in the screen with al my forms. But after hitting F5  the link was gone to the shared form.

    Hi Maurits, you're correct that currently you need to re-open the form using the link you were provided.


    You're not crazy about seeing the shared form before an F5, we had a little bug but I believe it's now fixed, so you won't ever see the shared form. Smiley Happy

    If we use AAD B2B Collaboration with many partners for an extranet solution in SharePoint Online, and if we don't want users from one partner to be able to access another partners site, we would have to create separate groups for each parter - or in some cases even for each site collection, right?

    Completely forgot that they allowed Sharing to Microsoft accounts. You can limit to the domain so they can't log in with a random accounts but that is a huge hole. Thanks for pointing that out. Really wish Microsoft would allow you to limit that without killing sharing totally.

    Where is the .msi hiding at?

    People really need an MSI so they can deploy from AD.

    As we know, "Allow sharing only with the external users that already exist in your organization's directory" is the default for Groups.

    Given that a customer of mine doesn't want to change such default (and in general doesn't want to use PowerShell), which is the best practice for them to create in advance external users in their organization's directory before sharing items with such external users?

    I guess that they must in any case use the AAD portal, but while they could directly create external users having MS accounts, they should use instead B2B in order to create external users having O365 accounts. Am I correct?

    Ey Salvatore, IMHO you are correct ...only downside of Azure B2B is that it's limited to professional accounts...of course, customer can manually add the users using Azure AD Portal
