I have a question concerning file formats. As a small business manager using
personal computers in the workplace is essential. Over the course of any
fiscal year documents are generated and files produced which are important
for maintaining from year to year.
Often these important files are generated in Microsoft Word and Excel in my
work. I recently referred to one such file that was 5 years old to see the
frightening words: “File Error: data may have been lost.”
My question related to which file formats are best for file retention. I am

I have used conditional formatting to identify certian parameters. I must
now copy that column to another spreadsheet but do not want to lose that
highlighted data. I have tried Copy Paste Special but I can only copy the
Values. Is there any way to copy those cells and the colors?
If you do a copy/paste special/formats, you'll get the conditional formats
(and other formats) into the destination cells, without changing the values
already in those cells.

I run Excel 2K
I have a userform that uses a textbox fot entering a date:
When I enter a date in my spreadsheet I type (for example) 2/3 an this
However when I type 2/3 in the textbox in the userform it returs 3/Feb/2009
So, the textbox interprets the 2 as the month and the 3 as the date.
This is unlike entering it directly into the spreadsheet which interprets
the 2 and the date and 3 as the month.
I would like the textbox to operate like the spreadsheet where it interprets
the 2 as the date and the 3 as the month.

I have Money 2002 installed on an Win XP Pro SP1 machine. Something
happened and I probably did it, that causes the statement downloads not to
go directly to the account. Rather they want to be saved in a file and then
opened into Money. I then have to delete the download.
I have tried several things in order to fix this:

2. Lowered all my security settings in IE. Even put banks into Trusted site

The form is based on a query, so when I open the form, a pop comes up

So instead of 30,0000 records, I get 1-10 records.
on the form, I have a text box. I want to be able to enter in what I
want to query next and afterupdate have the recordset/form reload with
that query instead of my original qeury.

I have a sheet with conditional formatting applied, the conditions work but
once I save and come back, when the specific conditional format is triggered,
it looks like nothing happened. When you scroll up/down or switch between
tabs and then come back, that's when the conditional formatting is visible.
Working in Excel 2007 and it's important for users to see the formatting
happening in view, and not having to scroll back and forth to see the
changes. Any thoughts why this is happening?
...listing cells that have external data link
I bet this has been asked before... Is there a way or a tool to list all

Using Excel 2002
Maybe you could use the builtin edit|Find.
Search for .xls (or [ or ]
Then click the find all button. You'll see a list of all those cells that
contain that value--and if you're not using them as plain old text, you should
see a list of links.

Hi Chris, Try-File, Print, then select Acrobat Distiller. It will then ask
