Automatically outline all email addresses in a given text by putting them in red-bold
I often treat raw texts and need to quickly visialize the paragraph
containg email addresses. It takes me a great deal of working time t
manually click red-bold on each email address I see in a text and it i
not rare that I omit some addresses.
Is there a simple function (like replace all *@* with *@* red-bold) i
Excel or Word that I can use to automatize the process?
Thanx in advanc

I am trying to print out a chart with a text box labeling a specific data
point. If I select the entire sheet to print, the data, the chart, and the
text box will print. However, when I select only the chart to print (which
is what I want), the text box remains with the sheet, and does not appear
with the chart.
I believe this is an issue with "background/foreground", so I grouped the
chart and the text box together, but this still did not work.
Is there any advice out there? Thanks.

Sure it is. Open a standard File/Open dialog to ask the user for the
file name, then use that value in DoCmd.TransferText. Sample code can
be found in many places, including:
http://www.tek-tips.com/faq...Difference within HTML/Rich Text/Plain Text
Could anyone explain me the difference between the three mail format (HTML,
Rich text and Plain text) and wich do you recommend the best?
Use plain text unless you want to set the format of your text, as in
specifying the font, using italics, etc, in which case you'd probably use
HTML. Generally, you'll only use rich text if you're on an Exchange server
and sending messages to others in the same organization.
Having said all that, I admit that I prefer using rich text as it just works
better in Outlook 2003. The real answer is use whatever you prefer.

I have a paragraph that I want to be justified, but not by just spacing the

Not sure I know what you mean. I've never experienced being able to stretch text. You

Your textbox is probably link to a table right? If so, the textbox has the
same limitation as your table field. If you set the maximum caractere to 10
in your table, you will not be able to type more then that in your textbox.
