Anyone know if/when there will be a release so users can update Office
2004 for MAC that will work with Tiger, 10.4.7?
I have been unable to take advantage of any of the Office updates for
quite awhile since according to Microsoft on May 28, 2006 this was a
known issue for Apple and so far there seems to be no fixes.

...match a subform field value to a field in a 2nd subform
I have a main form named user_Match.
It has three subform containers:
sub_BUSays with source object form named sub_match_BUSays
sub_RptSays with source object form named sub_match_ReportSays
sub_BTSays with source object form named sub_match_BTSays
sub_match_BUSays has a field called BU_BT_Portfolio_ID.
sub_match_ReportSays has a field called MRE_PortfolioID.
sub_match_BTSays has a field called BT_Portfolio_ID.
The portfolio id is a unique 10 digit number stored as a string.
I want to use the parent form to identify incorrect portfolio id's
in the BUSays and ReportSays subforms.

OK. It's been a while but I could've sworn that I once was able to format a

Is this possible or have I confused it with another application.
Sounds like you are remembering Access database tables.

Select the chart, press the equal key, then select the cell with a
mouse. This adds a text box in the middle of the chart, which you can
move around and format as needed.
