In front or at the end?


a. Tools|Options|Edit tab, uncheck Fixed Decimal

How can I circle numbers.
Wingdings Symbols only go up to the number 10 circled, I need to circle up to at least 30: Thank you for your help -- DocT There are (probably pretty ugly) circled numbers up to 50 in Chinese fonts -- see if you can access Unicode 2780 through 2789 and 3251 through 325F and 32B1 through 32BF (I can't find the teens, but they have to be in there somewhere!). To use these, type the four-digit code on the regular keyboard and then press Alt-X. On Dec 16, 9:37=A0am, Doc <> wrote: > Wingdings Symbols only go up to the number 10 circled, I n...

how can I delete the four zeros at the end of a field?
I have a database of company names and DUNS numbers. Numerous people made entries into this database. Some of the DUNS numbers have four 0s at the end, and some do not. For my purposes they all have to be the same length -- either with the four zeros or without them, but all the same length. I created two queries to separate the two sets of numbers. They are in text format, and some begin with a 0. So, if I convert them to numbers and multiply or divide by 10,000 they still will not be right, because the starting 0 will be dropped. They were also, BTW, provided in a number format...

Invoices without numbers
We deal with a number of small vendors which do not use invoice numbers. Since GP's only uses the invoice number to check with duplicates there is no check for duplicates. Wondering what processes others might be using in these circumstances. Thanks We have the same issue. We tend to use the date of the invoice as the invoice number. The hard part is making sure that AP users enter it consistently every time. We've finally standardarized on Month, Day, Year (MMDDYYYY) with no dashes, marks or spaces.

How do I make Excel stop rounding off my numbers that are 16 digi.
Using Excel 2003... I want to type in a 16 digit number without it rounding of the last digit. In example I type 6038060611469583 and I get 6038060611469580. I give the number enough space and I have tried to go to format and select custom but I cant seem to type in a format that would avoid my number from rounding off. Hi Excel supports only 15 significant digits. As I doubt you want to calculate with this number try one of the following: - preformat the cell as 'Text' - enter the value with a leading apostrophe. e.g. '6038060611469583 -- Regards Frank Kabel Frankfurt, Germ...

Formatting decimal numbers as time
I have a timesheet that's used for payroll purposes. The sheet is about as simple as it can get. I would like to be able to enter the time worked for XXXXXX as a decimal number and have it display as hours and minutes. For example: 4.5 hours would display as 4:30 2.1 hours would display as 2:06 For any computation of the time, such as adding the two time examples above, the calculations would work with the original decimal numbers, and the total would yield 6.6 hours of time. Yet the display in the cell would be 6:36 You would think this would be a relatively easy thing to do, p...

When i tried it with my home coputer (Win XP Home) i have got a strange problem.

I can not enter quantity and price with decimals. For example when i enter a price of 8,20 Money changes that to 82. When I enter a price of 43,24 (43 dollars and 24 cent...

numbers above dates on x axis
I have dates on x axis, from Oct 10 1999 through June 19 2000. I would like to put numbers, starting with 1, above each date. Is it possible to do this as another x axis or is the only option to physically put each number above each date (such as a text box), such as, the number 1 above Oct 10 1999, the number 2 above Oct 11 1999, etc. Thanks for any reply. Nanofish, Try setting your data up like this - assume the data covers cells A1:C7 and that the title "Data" is in cell C1. The chart will automatically add two X-axis labels - in the case dates on the bottom and numbe...

Spurious blank records being added
Hi I have a form Customers and a subform Bookings. The subforms Allow Additions property is set to false and Data Entry to false. I put a button on the Customers form, New Booking, which changes the subforms Allow Additions property to true and Data Entry to true. If the user now closes the form without adding any booking details, a blank record gets created. In order to try to prevent this, I set one of the fields in the Booking table to required. Validation > 0. Validation message "Booking not added". That works fine, i.e. if the user backs out they get a message "Booking ...

Adding macro code to Personal Macro Workbook
Greetings, I have a .bas file and would like to insert this code directly into my personal macro workbook. However, I can't find a way to DIRECTLY insert the code. The only thing close is to record a dummy macro, then step into that macro and insert the *.bas code that I really want. Can someone tell me of a better way to do this? I'd just open the .bas in notepad and copy|paste to my favorite module. but if you right click on the project (when you're in the VBE), there's an "Import File" option that may work the way you want. mika wrote: > > Gree...
