Forgive me if I appear to be thrashing a dead horse here,
but I am making progress.
I'm using the DrawText function in a windowless ActiveX
control. This is working fine, although for some strange
reason it is outputting the text on a white background -
i.e. there is white surrounding the text, but nowhere
else. I have managed to prove to myself that it is not
because there is a white brush selected into the device

and it was still white. Besides there is a black brus...Add Lookup Fields to Entity
I need to add 4 "technical contact" fields (which would lookup the Contact

Thanks in advance,
Not possible. You cant have multiple lookups for the same entity.
You also cannot create new relationships between two system entitites.
This will work in 4.0
Not possible, Pezman. N:M relationships are not possible in 3.0 yet.
There is a alternative solution: a new entity to act as an N:M relationship.
In your case, Contract/Contact. This entity has two 1:N relations...How do I change the source worksheet for 100 charts automatically.
I have a worksheet with 100 charts that source a set of five worksheets,
financial forecast A. I create several forecasts (sets of 5 worksheets) and
copy over worksheet with 100 charts, but the charts reference financial
forecast A when I want them to source from financial forecast B. To change
the chart source to financial forecast B, I now have to open each chart and
change the source from A to B. Is there a way to do this automatically,
similar to the edit, find, replace function for data in cells?
You would need to write VBA code to do this.

In natural history, including museum records, it is commonplace to use a date
with lower case letters for the month, e.g. 19.x.2004 = 19th October 2004 or
01.iii.1999 = 1st March 1999. It would help users if this format were added
as a standard and could be converted.
For what it is worth...
If you add dates as text by preceeding the entry with a ' , for example,
'19/11/2004 and then apply the following formula
you will get 19.xi.2004 as the output.

That is the nickname cache. Search and delete the .nk2 file. That's the
