I'm sorry if this is an easy one but I just can't figure
I have a worksheet with 3 charts on it. I need to write
some VBA to select each chart in turn and change its axis
So I figured the first thing to do is to name the charts
so that I can select them properly in the VBA. But how do
I name a chart??? If I select the chart I get "Chart Area"
in the name box and I can't edit it.
Many thanks for any help,

I am having an odd problem in OWA. Many end users are experiencing time

OWA is being accessed on a front-end server. However, all attachments

I tried to create a new entity "new_InvoiceDDI" with a display name of
"Invoice" and it won't allow the display name to

Why is this? Anyone know a way around it?
There's no way around it except renaming the existing invoice entity to
something else. One obvious reason is the Outlook Client. It uses the
display names to show folders, but folders needs to have a unique name. The
web client uses the display names as well, so how can a user differentiate
between two entities having the...Populate combobox with folder names

during an install on an existing SBS server. When running Select

seen on all other installs of SQL. I took a chance and changed the value to
0, restarted SQL and ran the @@servername and it now came back as the name of
the server as expected and I was able to install CRM with no problems. Long

Is there a way in the SQL table to change the name of employee classes?
Where did you want to change them (cards, trx, history, etc). There are
several tables involved. Would it be possible to make new classes starting
with the class you want to duplicate as a default. Please let us know what
you are trying to accomplish by changing classes.

Can someone tell me what the pros and cons are (if any) of these 2 ways

It seems to me that the first method creates a named range that is
essentially meaningless to the user and is only used for VBA processing.
Additionally, if you don't write code to delete the named range it will just
sit there in the workbook waiting for somebody to ask what it means.
The second alternative is a clea...excel

The font in the AutoFilter dropdown lists can't be changed. You can make
