I have an application which is built from many modules. I re-use the

I'd like to have each of my modules implement a "SaveState()" method.
The method should return the state of the module (and any modules it

this format should be XML.

You are probably better off using the worksheet for this.

In Excel 2000 I was able to show data labels for bars that
exceeded my Y Axis, either min or max. In Excel 2003 the
labels don't show for these values. I only need to show
values when a number is greater then the Axis, for example
if my Y axis is 6% and my value is 12% I need to show a
label. If my value is less than 6% my Y scale is
sufficient to figure out what the value is. Is this a bug
in Excel 2003? If so, is there a workaround? I tried it on
several machines, and I have over sixty reports that use
this chart configuration.

I deleted some data series that were used in several charts. Now the charts
still have the series, but it's been changed to a reference error. I can't
find any way to get to those series and delete them.
Anybody know how to delete these Series "#Ref!" objects from an Xl07 chart?
1. Select the chart
2. Choose Chart Tools, Design, Select Data.
3. Select the series on the left (under Legend Entries...) and click Remove.
If you don't know which series it is, click Edit to see if that is the
series you want to delete - you will see the Ref error.
