If you are using Excel 97 - 2003 and you often want to apply the same set of 
colours, you can customize the bottom two rows of the palette. Tools, 
Options, Color.

Fill colours in Series are automatically applied  starting from the first 
colour in row 6 of the palette. If you have more than 8 series the next fill 
colours will be automatically applied from the 7th row. Note that the 
palette is saved with the workbook. You might want to store your customized 
palette in a template.

If you are using Excel 2007 you can change the "Theme" or make your own 
customized colours. Series are formatted with each of the 6 accent colours 
in turn, but with a different set of "TintAndShade" for each set of 6 

Alternatively, with all versions, you can format each series individually.

How do I set up an argument which asks for multiple criteria
I am trying to use an argument that asks for one of three criteria (2345P, 8319T, or 7026J) in cell C108, and if it finds it, enters the amount of yet another cell, G108 into cell K108, and if not enters 0 into cell K108. It seems there are too many arguments for the "if" argument, and I can't seem to get the "lookup" argument to work either. Is there another argument I should be working with?

how can I change the scale of the numbers in my chart data table?
I have set up a simple graph, and I have opted to show a data table at the bottom which shows my graph results numerically. However, whilst I have changed the scale on the value axis with no problem, I cannot change the scale of my data table to thousands.. the only option I seem to have is to be able to format the font.

How do I set the 'Set Synchronizing Client' field

Stacked Bar and Line on Same Graph
Hi Is it possible to produce, on a single graph, a stacked bar chart and a line chart with left vertcal axis showing bar scale and right vertical axis showing line scale. .... heres hoping ... John Hi, Assuming you mean column (vertical) rather than bar (horizontal). Create the stacked column chart based on all the series. Select series you want as line and via the right-click context menu change the chart type to line. Then format the line to use the second axis via the format dialog - scale tab. If you really did mean bars then the line chart needs to be a xy-scatter. Cheers Andy ...

Appointment duration different between Outlook and MS-CRM
Does anyone know why an All Day Event on Outlook and an All Day Event in MS-CRM have different durations. It seems that an All Day Event in MS-CRM is calculated based on the individuals start and end times in their CRM user record but an Outlook All Day Event is the full 24 hours regardless of the start and end time you set up in Calendar options. This makes it difficult to use CRM for reporting the total amount of time spent working on a lead or opportunity if individuals are creating all day appointments in Outlook and synchronizing the data back to MS-CRM Any ideas? -- Simon Morri...

Work Hours setting excludes specified hours from Scheduling
I am miffed by this problem. I specify a work hour schedule for a user.

In outlook 2007, I use a custom view for my inbox, and I have the Group By option checked to"Automatically group according to arrangement."

hi folks I'm sure one of you good folks will save my bacon as usual I have a series of websites, all of which exhibit the same odd behavior with interactive buttons.
