I have an Access Report which I am using to create a text file for upload
into a 3rd party application. When Access exports the text file it is
creating a carriage return (i.e., empty row) in the first row of the created
text file thereby making the file incompatible for upload to the 3rd party.
Is there a setting I need to select to prevent this from happening? Any
suggestion you may have would be appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help!

Hello, I have a problem with displaying a graph in excel. It seems like
the default way of displaying a graph is from left to right, that is,
the longer part stretches out to the right. On my graph, dates are on
the left (vertically) and an other factor is on the right
(horisontally). I want the dates tp be horisontally and the other
factor vertically, and the curve/graph should go from top to bottom,
like a waterfall if that better explains it. That is, I would like to
rotate the graph, but not by saving the graph as a gif-file and rotate
it in Visio for instance, but as a real excel-graph, ...Text to Column Function Rejects Zeros
As part of a project, I was conducting a survey (administered online) using

were coded in Excel into a 10101 format, where 1=checked and 0=not checked,
all in one cell. Since 0 represents a response, I selected the cell

I have text wrap on a cell with lots of text and I
use "Alt Enter" to create new lines within the cell. The
last two entries in the cell are not wrapping though the
first four entries within the cell wrap just fine.
Is there a way to get the last two entries within the cell
to text wrap?
Is the rowheight big enough?
And if those last two entries are really long, then maybe a few more alt-enters
to break them up????

I'm concatenating two columns in an excel data file. The formula works, but
won't replicate in the column to subsequent rows, all it will do is copy.
I'm tearing my hair out - I've done it before but all of the sudden it won't
work. Can you help?
1) What happens if you hit [F9] ?
If this recalculates the correct results - then your Calculation option
is set to "Manual".
2) Did you, by mistake, fix the References of the concatenated cells with $

Basically you specify the angle in lfEscapement of the LOGFONT
structure. Then call CreateFontIndirect with this structure and you'll
get a rotated font of type HFONT. Use SelectObject to select the font

You should be able to resize in your code if necessary.

Which ap...Data Connection with Text Import Problem
Using Excel 2007, I've configured a data connection using a text
In the text file's first column, there is a value of TRUE (a
company's actual name).
When the data connection imports the text file, Excel sees TRUE not
as a text value, but as a binary value.
The problem is when the first column is sorted in ascending order,
TRUE gets put at the bottom of the column and is centered.
Placing an apostrophe before TRUE in the text file doesn't work,
nor does formatting the first column as text.
What can I do to make TRUE be sorted as a text value ?

Can a line of font be turned from horizontal to vertical.
I've been known to use tables and/or columns to create the effect of a
vertical font. If you make the column narrow enough and get the margins
right if will move all the text into a vertical line. It is far from
foolproof though, some letters, i.e. l, are narrower than others and so
frustrate this work around.
I am sure someone will be along soon with a much cleverer answer. Good luck.

Well somewhat - if you hold down the Alt key as you drag the text box it

snap to grid.
