wrapping text around another text box
My problem is this...I have two text boxes. I want to wrap one text box
around the other text box but nothing seems to be working. What I want to do
with the one to the left is make it into an "L" shape so that the box on the
right simply fits in the empty space of the "L" to form basically a square.
I have tried turning on all those text wrapping features with both boxes and
cannot figure out for the life of me what is happening. I have a box drawn
around the box on the right...don't know if that has something to do with it.

Greetings...according to the Excel "help" file, as well as the file extension listing, I *should* be able to read an *.wks file, but Excel insists that it cannot. I am pretty sure the file was created in Microsoft Works. Is there a converter somewhere that I can download/install? Cheers - S2
Excel can read Works 2.0, not later. You have to save them in Works as excel
files or Works 2.0 or get a commercial

I want to be able to add the following function

I think I should be able to do this with a macro but I can't figure out how

Any help much appreciated.

There is a little trick:
Say A1 has
first format B1 as Text
second select A1 and do a copy
third select B1 and paste/special as value
B1 will contain 2 as a piece of text.

I have created a PRODUCT formula linked with certain cells

A word 2003 document where I want to select a 'block' of text in order to
copy it in somewhere else.
How do I mark such a 'block' ?
I assume you know how to select text in general, so there are two possible
interpretations of "block":
1. If you mean a large portion of text that requires scrolling the screen,
click at one end of the desired selection, use the scroll bar to bring the
other end in view, and Shift+click there.
2. If you mean a vertical column portion of a wider block of text, use

After an SP upgrade of my Office 2000 the priviewed mail
doesnt get marked as read anymore. I have tried to change
the time (Tools->Options->Priview pane) from 2 -> 3 -> 4
seconds but nothing works. The only way to mark a mail as
read is either to open it or right click it and chose
Mark as read. Since I only use the priview pane this is
very anoying for me.
Is this a bug or has some setting changed with the SP?
...Series including text possible?
Is there a better way to create a "series" that is based on characters

I created 3 columns. I put the text in one, the digits in the second
that I could apply the series to, with the 3rd column holding a ":".
But when I paste into the text file, I have tabs separating the 3
columsn where I was hoping for no space.
So this here -

I want to allow the group Everyone to have read-only access to a calendar in
a certain mailbox. I can do this by granting the permission 'Full mailbox
access' (under 'Mailbox rights', under 'Exchange Advanced', for the
particular user). However this also allows people to to do everything (ie:
they become read-write users).
I notice that every mailbox in the system has 'Read permissions' granted to
group Everyone. This does not allow other people to open items in the
mailbox, but as I understand it, permits Exchange Server and Outlook to do

I have a small program that drops text from a Word table into Excel
using Paste Special as Text.
Although Paste Special as Text should insert the contents of the
clipboard as text without any formatting this does not appear to be
happening as it did with Excel 2000 .
Excel 2003 splits the data when it meets a New Line or Carriage Return
and drops anything after it down to row below.
Any ideas what is causing this behaviour
Thanks for your assistance

Change the location as necessary.

When I use a pulldown on a webpage, the text is not showing fully. It looks

it looks like the word "search" is showing the top half only. It's hard to
explain. It takes a word such as microsoft and the bottom of the m and the i

How can I express a formula that would back 300 rows and look at every
other row for the 3 cells with random single digits from 0 to 9 and

in cell 1 answer, cell 2 answer and 3 answer, then calculate which 0-9
digit has not occurred in cell 1, cell 2 and cell 3 the longest and

How do I put dates from one cell and text from another into a single cell
If the cell with the date is formatted as a date (and not text) you can use...
A1: 9/10/2003 (formatted as a date)
A2: _GIT (formatted as text)
A3: =TEXT(A1,"ddmmmyy")&A2 (formatted as text)
If the cell with the date is formatted as text you can use
A1: 10sep03 (Formatted as text)
A2: _GIT (Formatted as text)
=A1&A2 (formatted as text)
The reason I am clarifying it like this is I have never seen the date
formatted like that.

I want to make one cell equal another cell. For example I want cell A1 to
equal cell B1. In cell A1 I type '=B1'. Then I enter a value in B1 and I
see the value I typed in A1. But when I moved the value in B1 to another
cell, the formula in A1 automatically changes to point at the cell that I
moved the contents in B1 to. Is there any way I can prevent this?
You always want to retrieve the value in B1?

Every time I try to create a hyperlink of a cell (that contains a couple of
sentences worth of text), I seem to reach the maximum allowed characters for
the display text - and Excel cuts off the end of the paragraph. Hence, the
the hyperlink is created, but I loose half the content of the cell.
It looks like that text to display can be 255 characters.
And the same thing holds for =hyperlink(link_location,Friendly_name)

contains a longer string, you'll get an error back.
