Lost Formatting When tab is copied
My problem would seem to be very basic. I have a table that has values
with dollars in columns and then a rate (i.e. one cell less another
and then divide) in percentage format. When I copy an existing tab
either into the same workbook or into a new workbook, many of my
percent formats change to dollar format. This happens no matter what
page I copy and it happens on pages that I am not even touching or
Often times these cells that lose their formatting are next to cells
that are in dollar format that are pulling their data from pivot
table. Could this have anything to do with it?
...What was lost is found
Some of you may recall my frantic thrashing around here when I
reinstalled my OS (Win XP) and had to reinstall Publisher 98 but could
not find the installation disk. With a tweak here and a cludge there I
was able to reinstall from the Publisher directory on the drive. (Don't
ever install to the Windows/Program Files directory. Give each
application its own root directory.) But the reinstall, though good
enough to retrieve all my *.pub files and create new ones, lacks a few
features, like hyphenation, spellcheck, etc.
But today, what was lost is found. The installation disk turned ...Decimal place formatting button doesn't work when some cells already have no decimals

I have created a toolbar that is specific to a view(I have created in
OnCreate of the view) and dockable. The user can close the toolbar by
docking it and then clicking on the cross button. I have made a menu
to restore the toolbar. I want to know what function should I use to
restore the toolbar?
Also what is the event generated when I close the toolbar?
Can my view handle the generated event?
Do I have to use CreateEx and LoadToolbar to restore the toolbar
How do I destroy the toolbar programatically without the user clicking
on the cross button?
Any help would be welcomed

I hope this make sense.
If you go in the menu to TOOLS -> PROTECTION --> PROTECT SHEET
Then you have the chance to allow user to format Cells, Columns and
Rows by ticking in the small square boxes that are right below the
space where you write your password.
So, by ticking in these options you choose what level of protection you

It appears that access has been lost to modified reports.
I checked security and access to the appropriate modified

Have you tried using Advanced Security's Verify Security

In Excel 2003, I would like to find out how to make the value in one cell

Do you want to trigger the decrease if the reference cell increases by 10% in
one update, or trigger the decrease if the reference cell grows by 10% over
its baseline value in a series of updates?
