Track changes to cell formats

Is there any way (or workaround) to track changes made to 
cell formats, such as number of decimals displayed, 
bolding, etc.  I really need to know which formats have 
been changed.

Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

I think I'd use another worksheet that was formatted exactly the way I wanted
it.  (maybe hide that sheet).

Then I could compare that base sheet's format with the other sheet's current
format.

In fact, you could use a program by Myrna Larson and and Bill Manville.

look for compare.xla

I believe that there's an option for comparing cell formats--along with
values/formulas.

exporting a report in text
I have data in one table for which I have created formatted reports - 1 by program number and 1 by last name. I have the reports the way I want them to look.

I am trying to allow someone to select "Green", "Yellow" or "Red" from a list and the cell to display a green/yellow/red icon appropriately.

Exchange 2K: Controlling incoming email formats....
Question... AFAIK (and correct me if I am wrong), Exchange natively only lets you control message formats for messages that are downloaded to POP\IMAP clients. For security reasons, I would like Exchange to convert all incoming\outgoing email from\to external domains, as well as INTRA-domain email , to plain text format. In other words, I do not want to see anymore html email on my server going in and out, just plain text. Is there a setting for this for Exchange to handle this natively? If not, what (if any) 3rd party solutions are out there for this? Thanks, George Here's the Re...
