How to use outlook address in Excel
I have an Excel sheet which I use as an invoicing-application. I would like
to retrieve address-data from Outlook where I keep all my contact-data of my
customers. So, I want to select a customer from my Outlook contactlist when I
am writing a new invoice in Excel.
In Word, I have a macro which does this, but unfortunately the
Application.GetAddress does not work in Excel.
Can somebody help me ?

I wanted to set-up my newsgroups access In outlook 2003.
I followed the documented procedure
(toolbar/standard/customize) from the help menu to add
the "News" selection to the "GO" menu. It worked but when
I exited Outlook and got back later the "news" menu
disappeared. I tried to reinstate it following the same
installation procedure but the News option is no more
available in the "toolbar/customize list".
Looks like a bug.
Has anybody faced the same issue ? Is there a workaround
to access the Newsgroup interface ?

..."Transfer Out" Call Option
I manually entered into Money 2007 Deluxe a covered call (buy stock,
sell to open for a call option) that I made in September 2007. In
November 2007 I transferred all of the assets (including the stock and
short call) to another account. I was able to "transfer out" all of
the equities to the new account. When I try to transfer the call MS
Money says that "The activity 'transfer out' is unavailable for the
investment type you have selected."
In reality the calls were transferred from brokerage to brokerage. Any
ideas how to make this happen in MS Money 2007?
Thank...GUID/Outlook format link giving error "Unable to open the seleted folder or item"
I have created custom forms in multiple public Outlook folders and when
I send the GUID type link to the user, they receive an error: "Unable
to open the seleted folder or item". The same happens if I send the
Outlook type link.
However, if I ask the user to go to the folder and find the appropriate
posting, then the form opens and after that the link works, too.
Is this due to some Exchange server setting?
My clients are not the type that tolerate opening the form the long
way, they want a one click solution.

I'm a bit new to the excel "range" object type. I was suprised to see that

dim chunk as Range
chunk = .Range(A5:B6)
I apparently cannot do:

string = "A5:B6"
How can I concatenate up a string describing a range, and then use it to
define a range object's target cells?

You can make the x-axis cross at the maximum Y-value, but is it possible
(without macro) to make it cross at the minimum value?
I should find that much more useful.

Hi all ---
I'm thinking of putting the .Tag property to use by using a binary
("bitwise") encoded flag word. Over time I've come across different
possible uses for .Tag but have never standardized how I use it.
Has someone developed a convention for "parsing" binary flag words? A
simple IF works if I only need to test for one flag, but if I need to
check for the presence of multiple bits the only construct that comes to
mind is a series of IF statements .... something along the lines of:
FlagA = 1
FlagB = 2
FlagC = 4
