sorting issue

Hi,

When a range of columns are highlighted and a sort is performed on only one
column empty cells above the sort display first. How can this be prevented.
I know when there is data in any of the other column but not on the column
being sorted this will happen.

Any thoughts?
Pat

Are you sure the cells are really empty?

They don't contain spaces or even formulas that evaluate to "".  (Even formulas
converted to values that returned "")?

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.

Row names will not move with sort
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...

video playback is choppy on wmp 11 ... high bit rate issue?
i am having trouble playing back a couple of videos. sound is no problem. video is choppy. i have assumed it is because the quaility of the files is so high. one is 5 mgps and another at 19 mgbps. assuming it is a "bit rate" issue (as other videos of lower bit rates play fine), how do i get these high bit rate files to play back 'smoothly'? i am using XP professional, version 2002, service pack 3 thanks and happy holidays -- still a novice It's likely that your PC isn't powerful enough to play these high-bitrate videos.

Do not ever call OnDraw (or OnPaint). Their operation depends on information (clipping region) that is known only to the operating system. Instead, you can call Invalidate().

Can we sort a form and also be able to enter new records.
Hi, It is possible to sort the data on a form and also be able to enter new and edit the existing records in it. Cheers!

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. O...

Select that range format|cells|alignment tab uncheck the merge cells box But if you wanted to search, you can do it via process of elimination. Select a range, format|cells|alignment tab. If that merge cells box is checked, then the whole selection is merged. If it's grey, t...

Sort not sorting all rows
I'm using Excel 2000. have created a document, uploaded it to google docs and spreadsheets, exported it as a doc, converted it to a spreadsheet (excel) and uploaded it again to google docs. It's not a complicated file - no calculations or anything, just a simple log to enable us to collaborate on change requests and website faults. New requests are assigned a number incrementally one higher than the previous. So we need to sort on the Log number column to see what the last logged number was. However, it sorts most of the spreadsheet and leaves the same 5 rows unsorted at the...
