Excel slow to open a book, but fast empty
My Excel 2002 has been working fine, but lately has got a problem: it
is very, very slow when opening an xls file by clicking it. It is fast
as it should when I open it empty from the start menu. If I create the
simplest possible book by just typing something in one cell and saving
it, opening it is still slow.
Perhaps this format is easier:
0. Excel has been working as it should.
1. Fast when running from start menu, opening an empty book.
2. Slow when clicking an xls file, independent of book complexity.

We have an Access 2000 application that we wna to have automatically
generate emails to users.
In the body of this email, it would be nice if we could provide a link the
user can click on which would then open up the Access application (the user
may or may not have the application open at the time), and possibly bring up
the record in question they want to be viewing ( a cust service job#).
The email notifies the user there is a customer service related issue they
need to look into. Each cust service issue is assigned a number, so if we
could somehow pass the job# to the Access app from the ...HOW TO USE HYPERLINK within a droplist?
I have a question aabout this:
I set row A with validation list "yes/no", i want that if choose "yes",
then open a word document named "checklist.doc".
Instead of using a validation list, you could use a "yes" button and a "no"
button. The yes button can be linked to a macro to open the word document.
The no button can be linked to a macro the will type the text "Go to next
step" or something like that.

although they were coded into Access.
Voila, combo-boxes achieve the impossible in Word 2007.

Either way you get to pay full OS prices for Vista SP3 aka Win 7.

First of all, I'll have to admit, I've never made a bootable CD

I have several excell 2000 documents that when opened, the
first sheet in the workbook will display most of the data
at around a size 72 font that will not show in the cell.
All the other sheets in this workbook are fine. This also
effects the column and row headings (A B C, 1 2 3). If I
go to View > Zoom and zoom from the default of 75% to
anything else, it fixes the problem. I can then zoom back
to 75% and everything still looks fine. (Including row
and column headings) The next time I open the file, the
first sheet is still messed up.

There needs to be better protection on locked cells.
It is possible to alter the formatting of a locked cell by pasting into the
cell. Example pasting an entry copied from a % format into a currancy format
changes the cell to %. This also follows with coulours etc.
Secondly a formula in a locked cell can be corrupted by inadvertantly
removing cells that it refers to and then replacing them.

Yes, it can be done, if I understand your intention correctly. The

the three values defininig each point specify the x- and y-coordinates (like
on a map); the third value is represented by prescribed colors or shades.
