How make a favorite for all users in Ex2007/OWA/Documents area?
I am playing around with OWA in 2007 and exploring the "documents" feature of OWA that allows users to view Windows file shares by UNC. There is the individual "add to favories" option, but does anyone know of a way to administratively specify a favorite for all users? The alternative seems to be logon as each user to setup the same favorite--surely that is not the only way? Thanks for any help! Evan ...

How do I make the X-Axis increase in scale with the quantity?
For example: If I have the values 1.5, 3.5, 8.7, 9.9 in the x values for a line graph, is there anyway to make them spaced apart so that they are in scale with eachother... Like so the distance between 3.5 and 8.7 is larger than, the distance between 1.5 and 3.5? Create a XY Scatter chart. It, and a bubble chart, are the only 2 that allow for cardinals values on the x axis. -- Regards, Tushar Mehta Excel, PowerPoint, and VBA add-ins, tutorials Custom MS Office productivity solutions In article <>, =?Utf- 8...

Rename the a column title
Hello, I want to rename the title of the "Task Name" column. I looked in the help and the provided solution was that I have to hide the column, then insert it again, and in the "Column definition" dialog box enter the desired title in the Title field. This works, however I noticed something funny. In the Field name list of the Column definition dialog box there is no "Task name" column, but only "Name". As the latter contains the same information as the first one this is not a big deal, but what should I do if I want to insert the same old &q...

How to make VLOOKUP work for this
I have a "master" spreadsheet where column A is a time column and every row represents a second (in plain text format) such as 00:00, 00:01, 00:02.... 00:59:, 01:00, 01:01, 01:02,... and continues on for 24 minutes... 23:59, 24:00.

redirecting OWA default website
Can anyone tell me of any possible drawbacks in the future of configuring the default website for OWA to automatically redirect to the /exchange virtual directory? for some reason typing /exchange to the OWA url was an issue, so I was asked to make automatically redirect so OWA would load normally then. I did this a while ago and it works fine, but I just wanted to make sure it wouldn't cause any headaches in the future. Todd "Todd Seagraves" <> wrote in message news:i3f%c.17652$

Resequence Columns ?
I have some speadsheets that are pretty big. Lots of sheets, lots of VBA macros that manipulate the data, etc. The thing is that after using the spreadsheet for several months, and gradually adding more VBA subroutines to get it to do more and more, I'm now somewhat smarter about how I should have structured the individual sheets to start with. Too late smart... I would like to add a new column at the left edge say. All the reprogramming and debugging that would require is just too ugly to contemplate however. So my question is whether it is somehow possible to add a new column at th...

Stacked Column Chart Challenge
I need to creat a stacked column chart, but need the columns to be one in front of another, vs either stacked next to one another on top of one another. The closest I have come is to do the chart in 3D and pivot the corners of the area so the columns are mostly one in front of another. Have run out of ideas and not coming up with a good solution - any suggestions? Thanks If they are one in front of the other, they are not stacked. Make a clustered column chart, then format one of the series and play with the Overlap setting. 100 means they overlap 100% and thy are perfectly aligned....

Is it Possible to make a table from a query without a Make Table Q
Is it possible to make a table with a query as the record source, without using a Make Table Query. The reason that I as is that I have a rather large database that I use to create tables for each day of the month based on activity recieved from a larger database.

Align Clustered Column Chart Category Axis Labels
I have a simple clustered column chart containing one series. Instead of the category X axis labels being directly aligned under each column, is there a way to align the labels directly under each major tick mark? In other words, I would like the X axis labels to appear under the right side of each column when the gap width is set to zero. Thanks for your help. Stephanie, You can do so by setting up a dummy X axis. This example explains how to put a colored quadrant together. You will specifically want to use the X axis techniques that are described in the example. http://www.pel...
