I generated a pivot table in an excel spreadsheet.

blank cells?

Select the cell that contains (blank), and type a space character.

Or, if you don't want to include the data for blanks, click the dropdown 
arrow on the field heading, and remove the check mark from (blank). wrote:

Remove lines with +++
Is there anyway to find any line that has a + in it and delete that whole line?! I'd also like to do the same for *. I have a list of about 1300-1500 names and addresses.

They need to be removed from the list, but it's a lost of work doing it one by one.

Where did Word and Works newsgroups go?
Anyway I believe this is a Windows XP problem dealing with MS Word 2000. When I copy into Word 2000 from like IE6, Word will quit working with the clipboard. Closing Word and reopening it will make it start working once again. About a year ago, I was testing a number of XP systems and stopped updating Windows. This worked so well on my test machines that I stopped all of the rest of them. So nowadays I only get hotfixes that actually fix a problem that I am having. Although this one computer I restored from the Recovery CD just last week. And there are no new updates on it ...

Word Template Integration With AD
Hopefully someone will have an idea of how to do what I'm trying to do. We use custom templates for MS Word 2003. The templates contain user names so when creating a letter, we can populate the info (address, etc) automaticatically once a name is selected. The problem is that we have to manually edit the Names.doc file everytime we have a new user or name change, etc. Is there any way to get the info to be pulled directly from Active Directory so everytime a change is made in AD, it is also made in the template file?

remove Fax from address book?
Is there a way to stop showing Fax in the address book? I have a lot of fax numbers in my Contacts. I do not want to loose them - just not show them in the Address Book. thx Outlook considers fax numbers to be valid electronic addresses, since there are many client- and server-based components that can use such addresses. One method to hide fax numbers from the address book is to prefix the fax number with one or more letters (maybe B for business fax, H for home, O for other). If the fax number begins with a letter, Outlook won't show it in the address book. There are a couple of t...

How to Return from A Word document back to the Shape were I was.
Would someone tell me how do I go back to a flowchart diagram from a Microsoft Word document after I select a shape and link to that document.

Editing in a cell
I am having a problem with a newly created workbook. When I go to a cell that has data in it and try to add more data to the existing string I lose all the previous information.

Removing an item from menu
How can I remove an item from the menu and add some thing else. For instance, how can I remove inactive from the menu in contact page and put some other item with my own code behind it? You can hide the public views by simply creating a team (non used views or whatever you want to name it) and share the view to that team(done in the customize entity fields in the forms and views), this will make it a private view that only members of that team can see. You can also create new public or private views in the same place. "Amin" wrote: > How can I remove an item from the m...
