Paste special treats cells as a picture
I just got a new computer, and a newer version of excel, which is great, but
whenever I try to copy from one file to another, my paste special function
treats the copied cells as a picture. Instead of the normal paste special
popup, where it asks me how I want the data to come out, I get a different
popup that shows the source as a "Microsoft Office Excel Worksheet Object."
It asks me what format I want the picture to come out as, and gives me a list
of different file formats. If I try to just paste a link, it puts a picture
of the other file on the new one. I talked to so...text must be seen as code
I am struggling with the following:
I have made a table where a define Case / Description Case / SQL-code
The sql-code is the correct code (with [table]!... etc.) which need to be
checked if a record belongs to case 1 , case 2 , etc.
I want the code for these codes all togheter in a table to make it easier for
my successor to maintain it.
Now the problem:
In a query I make the following check:
Case 6: IIf([Overview cases]![SQL-code],"OK","NOK")
This does not work because access sees the test as TEXT, how can I make it
clear to access that this [Overview cases...Text values to numeric values

Good afternoon Jatveejay
Yes there is. Say your numeric value is in A1, in B1 the formula:
will show the number as a value. If you wanted to convert a number in
its cell from a text number to a value number, ie., not use a formula

formulas with no joy.

I copy something to the clipboard using Publisher 2007 and the computer tells
me it is in the clipboard; however, when I go to paste that information into
another document, Publisher acts like it is not there. I then need to close
the document I wish to paste it into, reopen it, and then, like magic, there
is the information in the clipboard and I am able to paste it. UGH!!!!!!
Open the Office Clipboard in Publisher. Edit, Office Clipboard. What program
are you pasting to? If it is an Office program, open the Office Clipboard in
that program too.

I want to send an e-mail newsletter in the body of an e-mail. When I e-mail
the newsletter to myself or another person, the formatting looks fine, but if
you click on any of the text, a text box outline appears around the text. How
can I make it so that this box doesn't show up if someone clicks on the text?
Even though you can click on any object of the email, they cannot be edited. I
have no idea why this happens. If you save the email into a folder this
phenomenon doesn't occur. A better solution would be to send your newsletter as

...No paste as CSV option in the Paste Special selection
A client of mine is running Excel 2000. When they select Paste
Special, CSV is not available as an option.
The data she's copying is not the problem since I have tested it here.
When you copy, you're copying raw data, not a file. If you want to
convert XL data to .CSV, you need to take the data to a separate
workbook and do a File, Save As, and select CSV.
