If your cells are contiguous and in a single column, here is a method that will
sort each cell and write the result into the cell in the adjacent column. It
can be easily modified for different situations.

Format the column as text, if the leading zero is important to
you then it is an identification not a number. The default
alignment for text is left aligned which is also better for
most identification "numbers".

In ver 3.0 when a new case is created, CRM assignes a case number to the case
such as SR-01484-OT9D. The email generated for new cases has a CRM number in
the subject line such as CRM:00060060.
If emails are sent with the case number, SR-01484-OT9D, in the subject line,
they do not get posted to the history of the ticket. Since customers, both
internal, and external, use the case number for referance, can some tell me
how to make sure emails get posted to the case history properly using only
the case number in the subject line?
The only way to accomplish this would be to write your...Can you put white space outside a textbox?
When I put pictures in my publisher file, sometimes I want captions
for the pictures. So I make a tiny textbox that I put under the
picture, and type in a caption into that textbox. The problem is that
I can make the picture have some space to left and right of it so that
text doesn't crowd into the picture, but I can't do that with the
textbox containing the caption. Is there any way to prevent outside
text from crowding the borders of a textbox?
You can move that textbox wherever you need. You don't need to leave space
inside when you can steer clear of the textbox itself.

Hi. I am a newcomer to Access database and would much appreciate your help in
this matter. I've visited the threads about resetting page number in each new

well in a report, where the section is the field control of the source query,

As soon as I did it, I realized that this would not change the

opened up the Name Manager (Ctrl+F3) and tried to change MP2OZ to

I want to use VLOOKUP to return not just the value in the cell but also the

is has a format that is for instance a strikethrough, then it will still show
up as "Sheep". How can I return the format as well? Is there a way to use
VLOOKUP to return a copy of the cell?
A formula can only return a value to a cell. It can not return formatting.
