I want to add a shadow to text in a cell. This shouldn't be complicated.
The help section said to choose the Text Shadow button on the formatting bar.
I don't see one. I tried to add/remove buttons from the bar it wouldn't let
me into the bar to do anything.
Any suggestions. I cannot imagine that Excel doesn't have a text shadow
Help section? That is for wordart, text boxes and pictures, for plain text
there is none, why would it?

I've noticed something wierd and always wondered WHY it happens. When you
type a date into a cell, and then change the Formatting of it to a 'general'
cell, it turns into a number. How does it come up with that number? What is
i.e. type today's date of "12/7/2007" - change it to a 'General' format, and
it then says "39423".

myself too. Thanks!

I noticed the 2007 DST Calendar Update "Exchange tool" is available now:
This will seemingly take care of calendars for mailboxes still on Exchange

However would this address the CDO issues such as BlackBerry users and OWA

Open the icon resource for editing by double clicking. Then notice the
control just above the editing grid that lets you switch between editing
the large icon and editing the small one.

I have Excel 2007 in English, but I sometimes receive data that comes from

So, in the same column, I have dates stored as dates, and dates stored as
text. Which is the easiest way to convert them all to date format?
Thanks in advance.
I'd bet that those values that come in as real dates aren't what the original
