Previously used file option GONE? help please

Win98SE
'Office XP Pro'

In Excel I am unable to find how to enable "open previosly used files" or
words to that effect.
I have checked in "options" but cannot see it there.
When I used it previouly I was able to select the number of files last used,
which would be available for me to select when starting EXCEL.

TIA

Are you running TweakUI?

If so, you may have disabled the MRU lists by unchecking "maintain document
history list" under the Explorer tab.

F1 is opening Office Online instead of Help.
I work helpdesk and recently someone pointed out that F1 is now opening Office Online instead of the Help task pane. I can't find where that setting resides to change it. In Tools-Customize-Keyboard, F1 is assigned to the Help command. Any ideas? I can't find any reference to this change anywhere online. We are running Office 2003 SP3 on Windows XP Professional. This only happens in Word, all the other Office apps open Help correctly. Thanks! In the Help window, you should be able to click Online Content Settings; this opens the Service Options dialog box.

Why does an Excel 2007 file lose its format when reopened?
An Excel 2007 file (e.g. File.xlsx) loses its formatting when it is reopened. You may have too many cell formats/styles. To see if that's possibly true, click on the Cell Styles "More" arrow and see if you have a gazillion styles showing. If that's true, you can remove unused styles by saving the workbook as a web page, closing, reopening, save as a normal workbook.

Using a macro to hide cells with out a value?
I have a spec sheet from a manufacturer that has shipping weight,volume, pallet count, and price listed per item. I use that sheet to enter purchase quantities per item and let it calculate the total weight, cubic ft, pallet count. and the purchase price. My question is can i make a macro that will hide all of the rows that don't contain a value in column A1 (order quantiti) so when i print the sheet, it will only include items that are desired for that particular order. The entire sheet contains a few hundred rows so it makes it to large to print the whole thing. Hi Scott See http://...

I am a complete newbie to Money and am very confused. Any help or suggestions would be most appreciated. I want to be able to use Money's projection and analysis tools, but don't understand how to import and use my existing data. I use PayTrust to receive and pay my bills. If you are not familiar with this service, it works like this - you give your utilities and credit cards the PayTrust address to send the bills (some, like CitiBank, some other banks, and Sprint PCS are electronic/automatic and you have real-time access to your accounts). Then, PayTrust e-mails you when you receive ...

Emailing out of Excel using Windows Mail

Opening several files
I am using Escel 2000 and when I start Excel it automatically opens 7 files, some of which I haven't used for months. It happens when I use the desktop icon, the task bar, and double click Excel.exe in explorer. I changed nothing in the properties and do not see anything that would cause this. I tried the detect & repair to no avail. Another suggestion was to hold down the shift key during Excel startup - no change. Creating a new shortcut didn't work either. Any other suggestions? Go find the XLSTART folder and clear out the files, OR if that's not it then Tools / Opt...

Using a DLL
Hi All I am assessing whether we should move to reporting services to make available various company reports via the web. While most reports have a stored procedure origin for their data, there are a few of our reports that require some programatic massaging. These reports typically involve some specialised data pivoting and/or formatting. My question is, can reporting services utilise a custom dll as the source of data for a report? As an example, reporting services can generate a report from a stored procedure via a select statement. Can reporting services build a report fr...

The snag I'm hitting has to do with keeping the records for a particular family from being printed in the next listing(there's 2 families per page). I had to use subforms in access in order to input the variable number of children names and birthdays. In doing so, the member's name and record number had to remain the same while the children's names and record numbers kept incrementing. Kinda scratching my head on this one. Any help would be appreciated. I'm almost positive the d...

CRM Service modue for internal heldpesk use is useless???
Hi, I went through the newsgroup looking for an answer to my question. We find it very strange, if not amazing, that whenever you want to use the Service module of MSCRM for internal helpdesk purposes it does not work. The queue which will have to set up will only be fed with emails from outside, the router does not pick up internal email. In other words, colleagues(non crm users) can not send email to a queue. In my assumption that would imply that you can only use CRM for support issues with external contacts. Any ideas if there is a way to do this? Without having to set up a child ...
