How to Change Language of Dates in Outlook Express
I work on the Occupied West Bank, but for some reason my
computer thinks it's in South Africa and uses Afrikaans
for the outgoing date in OE. I would like to change the
language of OE to English, but I can't figure out how.
The Help says to get a language encoding download from
the Explorer homepage under international, but I can't
find it. In any case, that doesn't seem to make a lot of
sense, since all I am asking for is Microsoft's native
I am just a regular user, so please be as clear as
possible if you have any ideas.
F...negative number format
I have a report uploaded to excel from a particular program used here at
work. In that program, negative numbers have the format of $###.00-, with
the minus sign at the end instead of the beginning.
When the data comes over to Excel the minus sign is still at the end of the
number. The text currently has a General Format with No Specific Number
Format. I have been manually moving the minus signs to the beginning in each
cell, then changing the Column to Currency Number Format which is very time
consuming. Is there a formula I can use in the Cell, Column and/or Worksheet
containing...Change date format to European format
My computer is set to European date format but Excel is default to American
date format. Can someone advise how to change this default setting.
Have you restarted Excel since setting the system date formatting? Excel
takes its cue from the OS on launch. Also, double-check the Regional setting
in the System Prefs.
If those aren't the cause you'll need to be specific about your version &
update levels of both Office & OS X plus any other details you can supply.
"Scott" <NoSpam-Scot...Formatting just some rows
Thank you so much for that, it'll save loadsa time. I adjusted the formula
as the original sheet contined 11 columns of data.
Can you help with this part now?
The original sheet had dates in Column E (in the form Jan-03). Thay have
come through on the new sheet in the single column as 5 digit figures such
as 37622. Is there any way of getting
the original form of the date back, affecting just rows 5, 16, 27 etc...of

I have a range A1:A1500 where the cells have the custom date format
However, some cells contain text. I need a formula to COUNT the number
of cells that contain dd.mm.yy dates.
I was going to try an array SUM(IF(...1,0) which tested for LEN of 8
(the no. of characters in the date fields). But some of the text
entries could also contain 8 characters.
Can anyone advise how I can count the dates?

I have a form that contains a Tab Control.
I would like to setfocus to a specific control on each tab when the tab is
activated, but can not find any event that provides this ability when the
tab is selected. I can only find "On Click", "On Dbl Click", "On Mouse

MY question is simple, sorry if i'm being stupid.
Can anyone tell me how can i make a list which contains only dates of all

In a more advanced sense, can I create a list with all the Fridays AND
Saturdays of a month?
You didn't post a lot of detail about your setup. Assuming the month number
is in A1 and your list of Fridays and Saturdays is to be listed in Column B
starting at B1, put these formulas in the indicated cells...

I have two questions about OL2003:

extra lines on hitting Enter. It makes more space between paragraphs. Is
there any way to insert one line with one Enter?
2. I'd like to have special effect in replying text message sometimes, such
as change color of font, but it cannot be done unless changing the message

I would like to be able to "freeze" the formatting for the number of decimal places in cells - some will need to be integers, some will need three decimal places, etc. The problem comes when I paste in information; the number of decimal places I have formatted the cell for is overridden by the pasted-in data.

We are using MS Office 2000 Professional. We would like to upgrade only
the Excel 2000 to 2003. Can we just upgrade Excel without upgrading the

MS Word 2000, PowerPoint 2000, etc or can Excel run nicely on it's own?

Hi everyone, does anyone know how to do this? I hve a column of figures
some positive and some negative. I want to format them so taht th
negative numbers are expressed in (brackets) and also so that th
column itself is decimal aligned, so even if I don't use decimal place
the brackets "stick out". I know Word does this in tables, but I can'
seem to make Excel do it. Help! Thanks, Vicky. :confused

...Format Smartlist field
Is it possible to format a smartlist field? Let's say from 2 decimals to 4
This is only possible in SmartList Builder SmartLists, not in the 'out of
the box' SmartLists. In SmartList Builder, you can click on the Display
Name of a field, then click the blue arrow in the header to go to Set Field
Options. For number fields there will be a tab called Decimal Places.
