Can I operate a back office computer without a dongle?
Can I operate a back office computer without a dongle? In quicksell I was
able to use the quicksell manager on the back office computer (not networked)
by making a backup of the database file on the register and restoring on the
back office machine... this allowed me to do invoicing, run reports, etc..
without taking the register out of service???

Just wondering if this is a common problem. I have a few worksheets that
are protected shared workbooks, when I try to track the changes, Excel
either quits, errors out, or does nothing. I can't seem to track anything.
I've tried tracking the changes on Excel 97, 2000, 2002, and 2003. All of
them exhibit the above behavior. The problem DOES NOT occur if I only Share
the workbook and do not protect it.
This problem originally showed in Excel 2000, and now has continued through
these last two versions.
Is anyone else having these problems, or have any advice? (All versions of

There is no Strikethrough effect, you have to draw a line and layer it.

...rescaling one axis in a surface plot
Is it possible to rescale one of the axes on a surface plot? Sometimes
the automatic scale that Excel chooses is a bit silly and I end up with
a very thin surface.
The x and y axis scales on a surface chart are categorical. So are
dependent on the number of rows and columns in your data set.
You can adjust the values that appear in the legend (z axis) by double
clicking the legend and using the Scale Tab settings.

I created a flyer in Publisher that incorporates a photo, graphics and text.
It fills a letter size piece of paper. I would like to reduce the scale of
the overall design to 25% and fit four of them on one sheet of paper. Is
Probably the easiest way would be to make an image of the flyer and create a
new file with the document sized to your liking and use the image.
Another way would be just rebuild the document on the reduced work size.
Maybe "print" to a reduced size PDF file and see if it will print four
copies to a single sheet of paper.

Anna, isn't this line just your category axis? Then just select the

from the cat axis

Hello. How can I requery a form on activate it without move from current
Imagine that I'm on form A, I want to click on a button to go on form B,
make some record set updates and then return to form B and see those changes
Is it possible?
As you found, a Requery will cause you to move back to the first record.
So, save the primary key value first. Then requery, FindFirst in the
RecordsetClone of the form, and set the Bookmark.

If XP themes are enabled ( using an application manifest), item text in the
ListView control overlaps other items in small icon view. With themes
disabled, the next item is drawn at the end of the text of the earlier item.
However, with themese enabled, the items are drawn as if aligned to a grid
and this causes items to be drawn in overlapped manner which obviosuly looks
What might be the problem?

You can resize a window by using the SetWindowPos or MoveWindow APIs.
