Using Access and Excel XP
I have a generic function which I use to dump a recordset into Excel and

On my development machine (which is isolated and does not have the latest
service packs applied - naughty I know) I have successfully dumped
recordsets containing strings as long as 1500 characters (I haven't bothered
trying to test for a limit as it works fine for what we handle). On the user

service packs etc. automatically installed) if th...PUTTING NUMBERS IN A CELL

Format the column as text, if the leading zero is important to
you then it is an identification not a number. The default

most identification "numbers".

When I put pictures in my publisher file, sometimes I want captions
for the pictures. So I make a tiny textbox that I put under the
picture, and type in a caption into that textbox. The problem is that
I can make the picture have some space to left and right of it so that
text doesn't crowd into the picture, but I can't do that with the
textbox containing the caption. Is there any way to prevent outside
text from crowding the borders of a textbox?
You can move that textbox wherever you need. You don't need to leave space
inside when you can steer clear of the textbox itself.

It corresponds to the xl constant: xlWorkbookNormal
So it doesn't help too much.

Trend lines are based on all the data points in a series.
To get a trend line on a subset of data you will need to add a new series
based on only that subset.

That makes sense. When they released Excel 97

You can be backward compatible but it's pretty
hard to be forward compatible.
