How to select & display distinct values
Hello, I need help with a form please. My form has two controls, the first being a combo box. This box should select the company name from a lookup table. The lookup table has only two companies in it, however, they each are repeated several time. Company 1 has about 10 rows, company 2 has 3 rows. I used the query builder and came up with the statement: "SELECT DISTINCT Lktbl_Role_Master.CompanyName FROM Lktbl_Role_Master;" When I run the statement directly from query view, it executes perfectly and returns exactly two rows (one for each company, in a datasheet view) ho...

Printing JUST the Charts, not the data...
Hi, I'm using Excel 2000 and have a number of worksheets with which I've created some charts (all in the same workbook). Is there a way to print the charts that doesn't involve having to highlight each chart individually? I've got some charts in the same worksheet as their source data and some that are on their own page, but that doesn't seem to matter (unless I'm missing something). Any ideas? Thanks, Shane You could use a macro like the following. It prints out each chart sheet, and each embedded chart on each sheet, as if you'd selected each chart a...

collection letter #2
I am trying to create collection letters to include all A/R detail. I have managed to include the invoice detail but this does not show any payments, returns or credit memos. Is there a way to include these? We have been using a modified trial balance as a statement to show all activity and have it aged in buckets. This requires an additional cover sheet since there is no easy way to have this report formatted to align in a window envelope. This is a time consuming task. I do not like the statements that are generated using the sales routines since that includes every transaction ...

Charts for Dummies?
I really don't want to have to learn VBA - I know enough to make out what my Excel macros are talking about, but I just do not have enough time to learn all the ins and outs of charts and graphs programming. However, my boss is not an accountant. He can read a financial statement, but I did a graph/chart thingy one day, showing one week of sales this year, vs same week last year. He really loved it, and it was far easier for him to "see" the data's values than just a bunch of numbers in rows and columns on a piece of paper. My problem is that oh-so-nice 'thingy' ...

Formulas are displayed, results are not
Hello, For some reason, when I enter a formula into a cell and press enter, the formula just stays there. Anyone know what I can do to show the results? I tried pressing Cntrl + `, but that didn't work. FYI, when I cut and paste a column from a separate workbook, that column works like normal (i.e., the formulas produce results). Thanks for any suggestions! Hi Mike, Maybe your cell is preformatted as Text. Try formatting to general then erase your = and type it in again.

Delete Chart Event
Hi All Is it possible to detect an event when a chart is being deleted in vba? Thanks a million Kike Hi, There is no delete event. But you could try this. The Deactive event is fired when you delete a chart sheet. Trouble is the chart is still there when you are in the event so you can not tell the difference between deactivate or delete. So you use a routine to issue a OnTime call to another routine. Store a reference to the chart sheet in a module level variable. The when the ontime routine runs, about a sec or 2 later, you can check the object. If deleted it will result in an erro...

Stop displaying a line
I have a line graph/chart and it gets its values using a formula and the values of another column. However this poses a problem because if there is nothing in the targetted column the formula returns 0 cause the line to drop to the bottom, instead of casuing the line to just end until a value is added to the target column. How can I do this? Change your formula to use NA() if the cell is empty. For example: =IF(A1="",NA(),A1) To hide the resulting #N/A errors on the worksheet, you can use conditional formatting. There are instructions here: http://www.contextures.com/xlC...

unattached textboxes disappear when a msgbox is displayed on a tab control
I'm using Access 2003. I have a form with a tab control on it. I was having problems with labels flashing and I followed the suggesting from Allen Browne - http://allenbrowne.com/ser-46.html. The flashing went away but now when a msgbox is displayed the unattached textboxes that I'm using as labels disappear. They come back as soon as the msgbox is removed from the screen. I've searched google looking for an answer but have come up short. Does anyone know why I'm experiencing this behavior and how to make it go away? Thanks, Rick That *is* strange. Have you tr...

A question about Console window(display or not display)
I've redirected the (stdin stdout stderr) of a console window process I spawned to a pipe. And I want to display the redirected console window, the question is: If I display it(set Create_new_CONSOLE in createprocess and some flags in startupinfo), I cannot use the redirected way of pipe, which means if i do not display, i can use the pipe communicating with the child process. Does it mean that as long as I disply the console window, windows will change stdin stdout to "screen&keyboard" instead of my pipe? That's right. If you redirect stdin or stdout then you preemp...

Watermark for Excel chart
Does anyone know how to create a watermark on an Excel Chart? Tom, You might try a few of things: (1) Activate your chart by clicking on it. Type the word "Draft" and hit the enter key. A textbox should appear with the word "Draft" on the chart. Position the textbox to where you want it to be and format it accordingly. (2) Double - click on the outside area of your chart. In the Format Chart Area dialog box, set the Area to None. Do the same with the plot area. Now, select a range on your spreadsheet that contains the text of the watermark that you want. In...
