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,

...Problem with multiple users opening a worksheet
We occassionally have problems with multiple users being able to ope
the same worksheet and edit it at the same time. The worksheet is no
set to be shared, and normally notifies the second person that it i
already open and that they will have read-only access. I am not to
sure where to proceed with this. My thoughts are that it could be
corrupt workbook, or perhaps network connectivity problems. They ar
using the same version of Excel (2002), but one is on Windows 2000 Pr
and the other is on Windows XP Pro. The document is stored on

Now that my masterpiece workbook is nearly complete with 7 worksheets and pages of VBA code, I now

I tried to create a new entity "new_InvoiceDDI" with a display name of

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

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
of naming a range.

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.

Mail Merge on the toolbar (Publisher 2000), create Publisher Address List.

I'd like information on how you can view the name/reference for the source
data of a Pivot Table. For Example, in MS Access and Cognos Impromptu you
can go to SQL view and see where data in a Query is coming from. It's easy
to find the source of formulas in Excel, using the Audit Toolbar. I'd like a
way to quickly view the file name (whether an Excel file or external source)
and field names that were used to create the Pivot Table.

and then reopen the file, all of the formatting disappears and the tab stops
revert to .5". Once, I tried doing a few lines at time; saved them, reopened
the file--they were still there. So, I continued working on the file. Later,
