picking from a specific list in a combo box
I have a form that has a combo box called "contact" that refers to a table
called "Contacts". I would like to pick from a list of contacts for a
specific client without displaying all of the names in the contacts table,
just the ones that match the name of the client on the main form. I've tried
joining the ID's in the relationships but it doesn't seem to work for me. Any
help appreciated! Thanks Lee

I have an XY chart using dates for the X. The Y axis is made up from a
column of equations. When I create the chart, the lines that connect the
data points don't show up. I have been into the plot format and tried making
the lines come up in different colors, but nothing seems to work. However,
when I make a column that is equal to just the value of the other cells and
use this new column to graph the chart, the lines show up, but the dates
change to numbers between 0 and 12 on the chart. How do I make the lines
show up without changing the any of the data?

Dear Excel Experts: I have created a scatter chart of x and y values.
Having done this, is it at all possible to extract intermediate values from
the chart. For example, can I call out a value on the x axis and somehow
have the program interpolate a value along the y axis where the x axis value
would intersect. If this can't be done, then can someone tell me how to
interpolate from the data that was used to create this chart? Here's what I

Hello, I would like to chart a cumulative list of numbers I have in one

column A eg. B1=A1, B2=A1+A2, B3=A2+A3 etc. The problem I'm having is how to

or rows for month) for the Y axis and have the X axis run 1-31 to show a
