Auto Filter Sorting Issue

I have a large spread sheet and frequently use the auto filter capabilities.  
My rows are getting out of sequence (the data is not staying in the correct 
row).  I've marked cells and then tested by sorting different columns 
ascending, desending, etc. and I've done this on multiple columns.  I can not 
get the data to return to the original format even when I turn the filters 
off.  I have in excess of 100 hours invested in this data.  Needless to say 
it's a very important document!  Any help will be greatly appreciated.

If you want to get back to original order of the rows, then you can
put a simple sequence 1, 2, 3, 4 etc down a column before you start
changing anything in your sheet. Then you will always be able to sort
back to this sequence. Remember to include this column in the sort
range whenever you sort.

Hope this helps.

custom report filter by customer & supplier
We would like to have the reporting capability to pull a customer list with name, address, email and phone number (where available of course) filtered on customers who have purchased Vera Bradley(Supplier) products in the past.

The report would give us just the subset of 1000 customers to use for target marketing purposes. The report would need to be...

Auto-Editing

Auto correct or Auto complete
We are all familiar witht he auto correct or auto complete functions found in MS applications. Of course that means it is available in Access also. My question is this ... can this function be replicated within the DB, so that the set of auto correct items are part of the package rather than something that would have to be set up on each individual desktop system? It's use, for me, would primarily be within a memo field where medical abreviations, used as a shortcut, would convert to the true meaning as the user types them in.

Auto Scale Chart Macro -- Any improvements please?
This is the best way I've found to correctly scale a chart -- the only way I found to exclude a chart interpolating with #NA cells was to delete those cells containing #NA, and run the chart.

Any way to get rid of an auto-suggestion in the login dialog box, for Exchange/OL using RPC over HTTP?
A client was using RPC over HTTP to two different Exchange servers (OL prompting for profile on startup). Both profiles were set up to prompt for credentials upon connection to Exchange. There's now only one Outlook profile needed; the other is gone and OL isn't prompting for the profile selection any longer, which is fine. However, Outlook is remembering domain1\user and domain2\user in the login dialog box, and I'd love to be able to get rid of the no-longer-valid credential dropdown suggestion.

Now that auto reply went back to the guy who emailed - who must have sent it from a public folder himself (as he forwarded the original email from a public folder).

Best way to do this (variable report filtering)
I am trying to create a form that will allow the user to filter the contents of a report by up to 6 fields. (Theme, Sponsor, Site, AcctExec, Advertiser, Type). I was leaning on the direction of having Filter On checkboxes that if checked would point to the fields that the user wanted to filter by. Then have comboboxes with the values for the filter. If no check boxes checked, no filter etc. I have a query that pulls all information and I have done something similar in the past (minus the checkboxes) but my brain isn't working.

Sorting Zip Codes #2
I have a mailing list that contains both 5 and 9 number zip codes. When I ask to sort it first sorts the 5 number and then the 9 numbers. How can I combine them? One way: insert 2 helper columns next to the zip codes. Then use "Data", "Text to COlumns" to seperate the first 5 numbers from the other four. Then do a sort using the 5 number column as the first sort and the 4 number column as the second sort. (Be sure to highlight ALL of your data). Once the sort is completed, you can delete the helper columns and you're done. --- Message posted from http://www.E...
