Where's the Sort by New Message option?
Not sure when the layout of the newsgroups changed but I can't seem to find the ability to sort by new message in a thread instead of sorting by just the original thread date.
That was hugely helpful as I could follow along and see what threads were still active.
If you're gonna hang around in the newsgroups (any newsgroups), you may want to
start using a newsreader.
Microsoft Outlook Express can do it for you.

I'm using MS Money 2004 Small Business. In the account list, my accounts
are catagorized by and in this order:
- bank accounts
- credit accounts
- investment accounts
- loans and liabilities
- asset accounts
In the above view, I cannot easily determine totals for assets and
liabilities. The following view does this.
- bank accounts
- investment accounts
- asset accounts
-loans and liabilities
How do I get the above view?
I don't use Small Business. But you can run a Net Worth report to get total

Each row in my summary table in Sheet1 is hyperlinked to a corresponding table in Sheet2 with additional details.
I need to move the rows in my summary table (Sheet1) and preserve the links to and from the details tables (Sheet2).
I found that I can move rows in Sheet1 with cut & insert and the hyperlinks are maintained. I can travel from a row in summary table (Sheet1) to details table (Sheet2) and back, even after the corresponding row (Sheet1) was moved.
But if I sort the rows in Sheet1 the links from Sheet2 back to corresponding rows in Sheet1 lead to presorted locations. Apparen...Determine cells that drive conditional formatting?
Cells A1:A4 have conditional formatting set up that states if they are equal
to cell A10 they will be highlighted yellow.
Is there a way to quickly see what cells drive conditional formatting? In
other words, we can use Edit -> Go To Special to see which cells have
conditional formatting applied; however, this doesn't show us that A10 is
involved. Since there isn't a formula directly involved, we can't trace
precedents/dependents. Can we only know that A10 is involved in the
formatting of A1:A4 by selecting those cells and going into the conditional

I often have to fix and then unfix cell references using the $ sign to fix
and then find and replace to unfix.
Is there a menu option to fix column / fix row / fix reference (and unfix).
If there is I cant find it.
not AFAIK, however F4 is the shortcut key for this and takes you through a
A1 - column & row relative
$A$1 - column & row absolute
A$1 - column relative & row absolute
$A1 - column absolute & row relative
would using a mixed absolute / relative reference solve your problem?

Is there an easy way to select two cells and swap them?
Depends on your definition of easy. Temporarily, click and drag the
first cell to an empty cell. Click and drag the 2nd cell to the 1st
cell. Click and drag the temporary cell to the 2nd cell.
Depending on how far apart the cells are, it may be easier to use
cut+paste rather than click-and-drag.

I am trying to validate all cells in a row so the user can
not go to the next row with out having an entry in each
cell in the row.
If a cell is left blank, I would like an error message to
appear and the user returned to the row that wasn't fully
entered. We are doing this on a worksheet.
If it's possible at all, it would require a VBA macro. And it would
certainly not be very reliable.
Perhaps a better approach is to do all of your data validation when the file
is closed. But even that isn't very reliable.

When I use the date formatting in a cell i.e. m/d/yy and enter my numbers i.e 2604, I get 2/16/07. Can you help me
you have to enter the date with delimiters. so you have to enter 2/6/04
If you want Excel to automatic convert numbers you have to use VBA.
Have a look at

It is possible to sort the data on a form and also be able to enter

I assume you mean "Is it".
The form sort order has nothing to do with editing or adding new
records, so the answer is yes.
If you cannot edit or add new records, make sure the form's record
source, if it is a query, is updateable. Some queries are not.

You don't. Available choices are chosen by clicking View at the top

Hi, all I've got a question regarding foreign text in Outlook. I write
to people in Japan and China and hence sometimes write in these
languages. I have used Systran and other translation packages, but
when I copy and paste the text into the mail window, it shows up as
garbage. If I paste it back into the translator, it shows as it
should. If I use Babelfish or Systran from the web and then copy and
paste the text that it gives me there (which is mostly the same), the
text works and displays in Outlook as it should. Does anyone know why
this is the case? I've tried forcing the font to ...Merging Two Cells and Keeping the Values

like "0006003860012345678". The giftcard should equal 19 digits with the 34
zeros out in front. I tried merging them. Is there a way to do this?
Have you tried using a custom format on the cell with nineteen zeros?

I know when there is data in any of the other column but not on the column

They don't contain spaces or even formulas that evaluate to "". (Even formulas
