Evil combo box resizing problem
I use combo boxes in a resizable dialog.
But I noticed that if I resize the controls (I use DeferWindowPos for
flicker-free resize),and there is a matching string text in the list (for
example, if the edit field contained "B", and there was "Base" string), the
text in the combobox gets replaced with the matching string and the text
gets selected (as if the drop-down list was opened and closed). I don't want
that. How can I disable it?

I created a custom form, adding both buit-in fields and custom fields to the
General page. However, when I go to Layout/Tab Order, only the built-in
fields that exist on the built-in Contact form show up in the list. Is there
any way for me to get the other built-in and custom fields to show up in the
Tab Order list?
All controls (note: not fields) should appear in the tab order, but if you
put some inside a frame, that frame will have its own tab order. Select the
frame, then invoked the Tab Order dialog.

I have a column that contains 5 digit numbers (12345) and I would like to

I am using Excel 2007.
I have a column that computes a percent. The formula looks like this:
The percents look great (ex. 96.2%). (I formatted the cell for
percents to one decimal)
I would like the cell to the right to say "We have "&b5&" instances,
so on the cell it would say "We have 25 instances, or 96.2%)
How do I do this?

Is there a way to receive a pop-up comment or text box when a certain thing

If you have a list of terms, maybe you can use an adjacent helper cell and use a
nice =vlookup() formula to show your message.

Hi, new the the forum.... :)
I needed some help regarding formulas and text in one cell. What i'm
trying to do is develop a simple formula to calculate a simple number.
The formula i have is: =(R3*12)-((R3*12)*0.1)
But the problem (or myabe not a problem :( ) is that i need it to show
as such: $103.57;1;NO;Case Price
Is it possible to have a formula and text in the same cell, if so, how?
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

A gentleman I work with has his setup so he can go into his Sent Items and
look at the tracking tabs on the messages. He's had this setup and working
for some time now, but recently this is no longer working. He has delivery
and read receipts requested for anything he sends. I can't find any logical
reason why he does not have the tracking tab anymore. I thought maybe it
only applied to messages sent to multiple recipients, but I sent test
messages and it didn't make any difference.

I can't find anything in help about copying conditional formats to other
cells - very frustrated. Help infers that the Format Painter can be used,
but that copies all formatting (color, lines, etcetera). How do we just
copy the conditional format and none of the other formatting attributes?
Why can't we simply apply one of the existing conditional formatting rules
from the conditional format menu?

After selecting a value in a date field by using the pop up calendar, the tab
