new series option

Sometimes when I highlight a new series on the spreadsheet and drag it
into an existing chart, a pop-up appears giving me various options.
Other times, the new data just gets added to an existing series, which
is not what I want.  How can I either get the pop-up to occur every
time, or get the new data to form a new series every time?  Thanks for
any ideas.

The easiest option is to copy the series from the data sheet and then go to 
the chart and Edit/ Paste Special (rather than dragging) to get the prompt 
for selecting a new series.

Copy the data, then select the chart and use Edit menu > Paste Special to 
get the dialog.

Default properties for new folders
How does one set the default properties applied when creating new email folders? Currently, when I create a new folder, it is created with the AutoPreview turned on by default. I'd like to change that do that it is left off by default. It's something of a pain to create a new folder and then go in to customize it's properties. You can do this by editing the Messages view; View-> Arrange By-> Current View-> Define Views...

How do I activate the new mail button

Disruption of order of data series in 100% stacked charts
I have built a 100% stacked chart based on 4 yearly series. My problem is the series are not displayed in the same order in every stack. In one of the stacks, one data point jumps up from the bottom to the center, like so: a a a b d b c b c d c d 2001 2002 2003 (d jumps up in year 2002) I would like the series to be aligned and so to appear in the same order in every stack. Tweaking the series order setting only serves to displace the problem. Thanks for any suggestion. Could you also post some typical data? - Jon ------- Jon Peltier, Microsoft ...

Sub Form Assigning New Values to Old Records
I am using a subform within a form to have users update certain fields in the record where the rest remiain locked. On the Main form when the list box (which is bound to a query) is used to select the record set to display in the subform it sometimes takes an old record and assigns a new value to the record. For example it changes the Period field from 9 to 10. Taking a record created in period 9 and assigning a period ten to it which is the selection I make in the list box. Addtionally, it looks like it is taking the first record in the related table to assign this new value to. ...

new to old
hi, A web designing company has just done us a website, and part of it includes the database of our stock. They have written/created it on access xp, but we have only got and old version of access. Can we open/use/update files written in access xp on an older version of access? thanks very much jethro Hi Jethro, It depends. By default Access 2002 (XP) uses the Access 2000 file format, so if you have Access 2000 you may be able to use the database as is. However, if the database is in the form of an mde file created by Access 2002 it will be in Access 2002 format. Otherwise (i.e. if t...
