failed upgrade-old excel data wont open

Tried to download the 2003 Office Professional XP upgrade 
for an older version of office. Didn't work and nowwhen I 
try to open any excel function, the installer begins, asks 
for disks (which I don't have) cancels and blocks access 
to all of my existing excell data and to my old excel 
program.

Any help???

If you have XP you can restore to a previously stable time!

That may fix your problem?

The first question is "Why don't you have the original disks?"

From where did you try to download an upgrade to Excel?

AFAIK this cannot be done over the 'net.

You can order upgrade CD's from MS

Did you mean "install" the upgrade?

XL Charts: Let my mouse drag all data labels for a whole series.
Excel charts should allow my mouse to drag all the data labels for a whole series in unison. For example, instead of having to move each data label one-at-a-time to the right of each column, I should be able to move them all together. Aside from the time savings, the greatest advantage would be the ability to move all of the labels a precisely uniform and equal distance from their original locations. This feature would be especially useful when one-or-more series in a stacked column chart is too small to allow enough space to display its labels within the the column -- Stuart Brates...
