The data validation list can come from a delimited list or a worksheet
range. You could store the list on a hidden sheet, if you don't want
users to accidentally change it.

Define "begining". The word tends to make no sense in this context.

Is it possible to copy conditional formatting that is already applied
to a given cell to another cell?
I know that the format is held and continuous formatting is possible,
you can copy and paste formatting (including conditional formatting) using
either the format painter (big yellow paintbrush toolbar icon) - click on
the cell with the formatting, click on format painter, click on the cell
where you want the formatting "painted" (double clicking on the format
painter turns it on until you turn it off)

Hi, I need some help on importing data from Excel to Access. The

Outlook is looking at the encrypted email and deciding that it must be text

Given these text field inputs:

Is there a way to have a new sentence start on a new line between text68 and

I guess what I am looking for is a "trick" to put a line break between these
elements. Text68 will be long and short sometimes, and I still want MOM to
show on the next available line (or even skip one line) and start as a new
section, but still reside within the original text box.
