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.

I have 3 sets (budget, forecast and actual) of sales and profit numbers and
would like to show them like a dashboard ( two small circles for Budget and
Forecast and a bigger one underneath those two for Actual. All 3 circles with
a hand point to the numbers linked to the source data ). Can anyone tell me
how to make a start?
Thanks and regards

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
the new sheet? Perhaps I need to format just these rows on the NEW sheet.
A similar problem exists with column I of the original where the � sign has
been lost. Again is t...Using F4 for charts and sorting
Excel 2007 - I would love for some of the F4 features to return to charting
and sorting. For example, if I change the y-axis measurement scale on a
column chart I want to be able to hit F4 on the next chart to make the same
change. If I custom sort a list, I want to hit F4 on the next list and have
it sort the same way. Have these updates been made?
Nope. I hope they make it into the next release (Office 14), but we won't
see them in 2007. One of the main reasons I don't use 2007 for anything
important is un-features like the lack of F4 capability make me much less

I have two questions about OL2003:
1. Word is set as default editor. In replying message, sometimes I will get
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
format to be rich text or HTML. If I uncheck Word as default editor, there
is an option in menu. What is it about with Word as editor?

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. Any ideas?

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

...Word 2008 line spacing and style weirdness
I just upgraded to Office 2008 and am already encountering weirdness.
I can't change one set of paragraphs (of the same style) to single
space without changing the others.
But if I create a new "single" style based on normal, then I can't seem
to apply "normal" at all.
Something feels very non-intuitive here. Has something major changed
since 2004 I should know about?
Also, I can't believe how buggy the upgrade was -- Word was crashing at

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

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.

I've got an excel spreadsheet full of data, and I wanted to create a column
that would tell me what the second highest value was, given a list of cells.
For example, I've got 8 columns (columns K through R), with headers "Team 1"
through "Team 8".
