Converting selected section of text to numbers
Could someone please help me to extract some details from "1/10/2004
through 31/01/2005", which has been pasted into one cell.
I need a formula to extract the month, 10 and another formula to extract the

months), so 10 becomes 4 and 01 becomes 7.
Please note that these dates change and may not always have the same number
of characters. ie 1/10/2004 could be 11/10/2004, etc.
I need to be able to then do a calculation on those 2 fiscal units (eg

Open the measurements toolbar. Use the angle adjustment.

Yes, but the method depends on the version of Outlook and the Editor used.

For m, it works like this - select all the text, then hold down shift and tap
the F3 key, that toggles the text between lower case, capitals and then
capital first letter for every word. It doesnt' work everywhere but works in

You can edit the Normal style under Format > Define Styles and change the
font for a drawing there. Many styles are based on Normal. Normal is the
default style for blank drawings.
You might also try and find BLNKDG_U.VSD or BLNKDG_M.VSD in the Visio
install directories. Perhaps you can change that file (in Visio 2003). It's
an idea I haven't tried yet....Displaying Text
I have an MFC application, where I'm interested in displaying some
text for the user in the client area. To do this, I create a device
context, and use the .TextOut method to display CStrings.
The problem begins when the window is resized, or when a menu that
hides the text pops - once the menu is closed, or after the window has
been resized, the text (or parts of it) are being erased.
How can this be solved? I read that when the window is resized,
OnPaint is called, and thus I tried displaying the text from there -
hoping to re-display it "after" it has been erased. The...Linking body text to multilevel lists that update
When writing large documents with numbered multilevel lists, is it possible
to link body text to the numbers so that they both change together?
For example: (Text for section 3.5)
3.1.5 Refer to item 2.1.
If the document gets revised, and section 2.1 becomes section 3.1, it
automatically updates (numbering), but the text in what is now section 4.1.5
still refers to section 2.1, which is incorrect. Can these be linked so that
when the number becomes 3.1 (in the numbered multilevel list), the body text
will also update automatically?

We have Exchange 2k3 and AD setup. We use the pop3 connector to download
email from various seperately hosted domains and route the email to the
correct client. Our users have noticed that any email they send shows the
recipient the local domain in the sent from field. We need to mask it to
say that it come from a different domain... for example one of the domains
that we use to download email from using the pop3 connector. Is this
possible? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I remmeber that there is a way that company address and conatcts should be filled to as many contacts (persons) that you have as soon as you fill company info.
For example if John is working for Dell at address: xxx
Then if another guy with the name James works for Dell, once I fill company name Dell it should fill his address and main phon number.
But in my MS Outlook 2003 is not working?
Any idea why? Is there any settings that I missed?

I've imported a large file of data that is basically three columns of data each seperated by a comma. (I could not figure out how to import them into a new spreadsheet so that each piece of data was automatically put into it's own column - but that is a different question)

So how did you back up this address book and in what format is it now? Have
you already transferred this data to Outlook Express? That would be the
first step you would need to take. Once you do, you can import into Outlook.
