How to Change Language of Dates in Outlook Express
I work on the Occupied West Bank, but for some reason my
computer thinks it's in South Africa and uses Afrikaans
for the outgoing date in OE. I would like to change the
language of OE to English, but I can't figure out how.
The Help says to get a language encoding download from
the Explorer homepage under international, but I can't
find it. In any case, that doesn't seem to make a lot of
sense, since all I am asking for is Microsoft's native
I am just a regular user, so please be as clear as
possible if you have any ideas.

how do you change the data order in a graph without modifying the table?
I know it is possible if you change your table, but it is not very convenient.
You can change the order of the series: double click a series, then rearrange the
series in the Series Order tab.
If you need to change the left-right order of categories along the X axis of a
chart, you pretty much have to modify the table. If the table is for display, you
could chart from a separate table, both tables linked to the same source data.

Tutor...negative number format
I have a report uploaded to excel from a particular program used here at
work. In that program, negative numbers have the format of $###.00-, with
the minus sign at the end instead of the beginning.
When the data comes over to Excel the minus sign is still at the end of the
number. The text currently has a General Format with No Specific Number
Format. I have been manually moving the minus signs to the beginning in each
cell, then changing the Column to Currency Number Format which is very time
consuming. Is there a formula I can use in the Cell, Column and/or Worksheet
Anyone know how to change a users business unit as I can't seem to

Anyone got any ideas on this?

My computer is set to European date format but Excel is default to American
date format. Can someone advise how to change this default setting.
Have you restarted Excel since setting the system date formatting? Excel
takes its cue from the OS on launch. Also, double-check the Regional setting
in the System Prefs.
If those aren't the cause you'll need to be specific about your version &
update levels of both Office & OS X plus any other details you can supply.

mail at three addresses, oldname.com, newname.com and mail.oldname.com. The
server was originally built on oldname.com. As such, whenever email is sent
from the server, the reply to address is oldname.com. How do I change this
to newname.com? We only have around 40 or so recipients so manually
changing the default smtp info is no big deal. Is there a MS tech bulletin
