The following Macro will not loop more than twice the error entries.
Will someone help me correct it to loop indefinely? Thanks

I have a workbook that I've just added data validation to one cell. FWIW,
the data validation is based on a named range. Here's the (perceived)
problem. When I've set up data validation in the past, the selection is the
same width as the cell. In this case, the list starts almost a full cell
width to the left. What am I missing?
In Excel2003 I can replicate what you describe under the following conditions:
1. the named range contains entries that are wider than the data validation
2. The data validation cell is r...Parsing XML in string variable?
I have a method that returns a string that contains XML, and I need to parse
that string (ie. find specific keys).
How can I do this? I found one that searches a Stream, but I don't know how
to convert from string to stream.
you could use the System.Xml.XmlDocument class, simply make a new instance
and use the LoadXml-Method (does not properly load string with encoding
You could also use the .NET 3.5 System.Xml.Linq.XElement.
There are several utility classes to read from strings and streams and vice
versa, e.g. System.IO.StringReader &am...Microsoft Word 6.0/95 Documents Not Opening in

Thanks to some good help from a previous post, I have been able to create
well formed xml as part of a report logger app. However, I still have a
small problem. When I add new xml to the log file, the new nodes are
appended to the original file. What I really want is for the log file to
grow as "report nodes" are added. Also, I am a bit concerned about
performance, particularly as the file grows in size. I must write to an xml
file (vs. a database) and am trying to understand the best way to do this. I
prefer to not use "temp files" and would like to just modify the ...Validating against a DTD
I am trying to validate an xml file against a DTD. I went through a lot
of examples especially:
but its not working in my case.
First of all, when i try to add my DTD file in XmlSchemaCollection
object, it throws an error saying DocType element is expected.
I am using NITF DTD for this and there is no DocType element in it.
Any help will be appreciated.
You should not add DTDs to XmlSchemaCollection. XmlSchema...XML Tree Structure
I would like to take a XML document and write its data into a tree structure
for a custom tree control. The document has two fields with one called task
(a text field) and the other called tree_level (an integer field). Consider
the document to be valid and well-formed. The tree_level is an index
describing where a node will reside in a tree structure. A partial view of
the XML document is as follows:

I'm using XP and 2003.
I have a problem that I have once found resolution, but now it came again
and cannot remember what needs to be done. Here is the problem: There is a
column where Validation is specified in right manner with error message in
case of error. When selecting the cell - dropdown list is not coming visible.
In case I write something wrong it gives error message.
If I recall correctly - it was something to do with some kind of list. How
can I change this to work properly? I tried to paste new column from another
file where the column is working as I want...Data Validation
I want to set data validation on a cell so that it will accept the following
(and only the following) text strings:
(1) "BR" (literally)
(2) "NT" (literally)
(3) "nA" where n is any positive integral numerical value including zero and
A may take any of the values "L", "P", "T", "V" or "Y"
(4) "An" where n is any positive integral numerical value including zero and
A may take either of the values "K" or "D".
Is this possible, please, and if so how? thanks

I have 2 documents. About 75% of the information is identical in both. when
I merge them I get a 3rd document that highlights and red-lines changes and
shows what has been DELETED. What I want to do is:
1. Have word compare the 2 and delete only duplicate entries
2. Insert additions in one document from other
3. Show me what has been changed
4. Allow me to merge the two and ELIMINATE the correction notations (red
text, lines, etc.)

I have set up a data form and have data validation rules on the various input
cells. I see that there is an option called "Ignore blanks" in the data
validation settings, which is supposed to restrict someone from entering past
an input cell without entering valid data, if the "Ignore blanks" box is
unchecked. I have tried to do this, but it does not seem to work. Please
could someone tell me what I am doing wrong?

I have a sheet that is essentially just columns of data (except for the
column headings in the first row), and two of the columns are what I would
call 'mutually exclusive': i.e. if a value is entered in a row in either
column, the user must be prevented from entering any value in the same row
of the other column. The two columns already have some basic validation
applied (ranges of permissable numerical values), and this validation would
need to be applied for any values that are entered.
I am sure this can be done, but cannot see how!
Hope someone can help.

to be one of those lists. I know that quotes are
required for the IF. My probl...Excel 2000 vs 2002 Sheet protection & Validation cells
