...AddIn Functions Have File Path and #NAME? Error
How do I get Excel 2007 to drop the file path on formulas with Excel addin
functions in them?
I've just upgraded from Office 2003 to 2007 on XP and am having some trouble
with my Excel addin workbook functions. There are a number of addins that
are kept in a directory on the computer, C:\ExcelAddins. They are updated
from time to time and so everyone has them in this directory on there
computer so IT can upload updates. After the Office 2007 upgrade I added
all these addins to Excel 2007. In 2003 I would be able to access the addin
functions by typing in the name and pa...Why does the change change to a number?
I've noticed something wierd and always wondered WHY it happens. When you
type a date into a cell, and then change the Formatting of it to a 'general'
cell, it turns into a number. How does it come up with that number? What is
i.e. type today's date of "12/7/2007" - change it to a 'General' format, and
it then says "39423".

myself too. Thanks!

I noticed the 2007 DST Calendar Update "Exchange tool" is available now:

However would this address the CDO issues such as BlackBerry users and OWA

Open the icon resource for editing by double clicking. Then notice the
control just above the editing grid that lets you switch between editing
the large icon and editing the small one.

If you do so, please use BCC for the adresses, this way you won't spread

...Adding Lines And Boxes, etc. To A Chart ?
Will blame it on my age.
Using Excel 2007 (or, at least trying to) and XP.
When I have a chart page opened up, how do I get it to show the bar on the
bottom (that the real old versions had) that allows one to click on one of
its icons shown to "draw" lines, arrowed lines, boxes, add text with a box,
etc on the chart itself ?
With the chart selected you can use the Insert tab > Illustrations > Shapes.
To add shapes to the chart. Textbox is in the Text group of the Insert tab.

I am trying to change a free text field to a drop down menu in my
current database, that already has data entered for this particular

that are just typed in differently.
I'm assuming that I'll need to recode the different versions of an
entry to make them uniform but after that, I'm unsure how to proceed
so I won't lose any data. Is this possible or will I need to delete
the field, recreate it as a drop down and then re-enter the data?

Sometimes, but not always, Excel asks if I want to save the current file,
even though I've made no changes. Does anyone know why this occurs, and if
there is a setting I can change to avoid the prompt unless actual changes are
There are a number of functions that will update themselves when
the workbook is opened, and this causes Excel to act as though
the workbook has been changed. These functions include NOW() ,
TODAY(), ROW(), etc. See Volatile Functions in help for more
