calculated column in pivot table
Can I create a calculated column in a pivot table from two other
columns. I have tried creating formulas but that does not seem to do
The answer is yes. For anything less general, we'll need specifics on what
you tried, and what happened. "does not seem to do the trick" does not give
us much to go on.

I have a column which calculated a date based on 3 working days from a date
input into a diff column. What I want to do I have the calculated date
appear bold if that date has passed based on the current date.
For example if I input 01/08/11 the next column calculates 04/08/11 (3
working days). I want the caluclated date to appear bold when I open the
spreadsheet on the 05/08/11 ro show the calculated date has passed.
I can use conditional formatting but can't get the syntax right

How do I get the value from an edit control into its value CString variable?
Also, how do I convert from CString to char* ?
CString has an overload for LPCTSTR (which depends on whether you are
compiled for Unicode or MBCS) so you can pass it pretty easily. If you need
to access the buffer directly CString::GetBuffer() returns the pointer to
the buffer. Call ReleaseBuffer() when you are done using that point (if you

I have an existing database query that will query the
dbase and return the results to an excel worksheet. The
query wizard is split into two windows: The window on the
left will allow you to select columns from tables that you
would like to display. When these columns are moved to the
window on the right, they become part of the query. My
problem is that when I come back at a later date to edit
the query and insert a new column, I can only get the new
column to display at the end of the worksheet. There are
two arrow buttons on the right hand side of the screen
