Newbie questions #2
My company is in the process of converting over from Quattro Pro to Excel,
so I have a few newbie questions.
1. How do I set a default footer that is printed with every page of a
spreadsheet? I want to have the path and filename, tab name, and date at
the bottom of each page of a printout. I know how to set them for a
particular spreadsheet, but how do I set it up so it is automatically
included with every new spreadsheet?
2. How do I set the default page setup so that the scaling is always "print
to 1 page wide by 1 page tall", and margins are all 0.5inches al...Numbering

Do you mean for the process names or function names? Yes.

...Excel used for exam questions?
Are there any examples of Excel (or maybe Access) used for general exam (or
revision) questions? Pointers, anyone?
For a simple example, randomly select two numbers from two lists provided,
and ask the candidate to multiply/divide/whatever operation, and insert
answer; evaluate the given answer.
I've Googled, but only come up with exams ON Excel, not exams USING Excel.
Simple examples would be appreciated.
...How do I expand the number of characters in Access comment box?
I am using Access 2007 and want to be able to include more than 250
characters in a "Comment" box.
You could try changing your table's field type to Memo. Assuming that
your are talking about a field in a table, that maybe shows on a form. If
that is not the case, please describe precisely what comment box your are
attempting to use.

I need to hide the page numbers for levels 1 and 7 in my TOC. I used the \n
switch to hide level 1, but cannot find a way to specify multiple ranges for
this switch. Is there a way to do this? I am using Word 2003.
You have to use a trick. See the "Omitting page numbers for noncontiguous

I have the ultimate challenge: to do job books for 8,000 employees.
The form is completed, but the request is to make booklets of 52 pages
for each employee.
Each page of the booklet must also have each employee's number on it
(0001 to 8000). Each page o fthe booklet must be numbered with the
week number from 01 to 52. Therefore I need to auto generate 416,000

When I am entering transactions manually, I will put "Debit" or "VISA" to

Money05 overwrites this with a sequential number. I have to go into the

"feature" off? I want my values used - sequential numbering does not help me
in the slightest.
This is not a "feature" you can turn off. It's a reflection of the basic

We should have the ability to number the cases without having a suffix. If
we do have a suffix, we should be able to define the suffix.

Simple question (i hope)
Is there a simple way i can round numbers to the nearest thousand by using

i would like to display 1,234.56 as 12
I don't want to be diving by 1000 and rounding to zero decimal places
because i still want the whole number displayed in the formula bar when

Format the number as #,##0,;-#,##0, or similar. Not the comma at the end -
this tells Excel to display as thousands (two commas here will display as

A column contains both strictly numbers and also numbers that are followed
by text (e.g., row 1: 1000, row 2: 1500; row 3: 1000a; row 4: 1500a)
Identical numbers are related documents, with the text suffixes referring to
addenda documents; thus, document 1000 has an addendum document 1000a; How
can I sort the column so in the following order: row 1 (1000), row 3 (1000a),
row 2 (1500), row 4 (1500a)?
