    Hi

    Trying to the impossible....like running the database in noarchivelog mode when the requirement from the management is no data loss at all and management is not willing to invest in more disk space ;

    For me, it's to convince users that i have nothing to do with their Microsoft Office, or email problems.

    Cheers.

    Toughest Job:

    Restraining yourself from choking the idiot manager who doesn't listen to your advise and then complians that his system fails (for the reasons you said it would) and expects you to resolve the problem as a priority!
