Formating Negative Figures in Brackets
In earlier version of Excel, we could get a specific format for presenting
the negative numbers in brackets and / or in red color. I could not find it
in the Excel 2007. This can be done in the Custom Format. I do not have
specifics for it. Can you give me the format for the same ?
Why did the Excel remove this useful and oft needed feature from their new
version, or am I missing something ?

Can you not go to the RMA Reason Code Maintenance screen and delete it there?

Well, yes, I can. That works. Sorry - I'm new to the RMA process.
Thanks for your help!

I am trying to use the import from text file into an excel sheet. I
read many queries and figured out how to import the values as text
without dropping the leading zeros.
Please suggest a way where i can import all the values as "text" type.
I want to avoid creating an array as the size of my text file varies
from time to time.
So i will not be sure how big the array must be.
In Step 3 on the Text Import Wizzard, select "text" in the upper righ
hand corner of the screen

I am trying to input an array function onto my Excel sheet through VBA. I

trying to evaluate.
Can someone please tell me two things... 1) what did I do wrong? and 2) why
would it skip all the rest of my code and go straight to End Sub?

I am trying to change the child/master links for a subform at the click of a

My problem occurs when I click on the button. I get a warning that tells me

Is there a way to bypass this warning so that the rest of my script can run?

We have been having a lot of reporting problems lately and I found out that

are created automatically have an HQId of 0.

I am getting an error in this formula:

I'm using Money 2007 Premium but have had this problem in the last several
versions as well. Why is it that if I record a negative expensive, it is not
reflected in the reports?
An example: Let's say I go out to dinner with a friend. We receive the check
and I pay by credit card and my friend pays me with cash to cover his/her
part. I record the restaurant in the Food: Dining Out category in my credit
card account and then record that I received the cash in my Cash account and
classify it as a negative expense to the same category. However, when I view

Even though formatted as zip codes, I cannot get the leading zero to show in

It means that your result is less than zero, but not within the precision
you are displaying. For example, ...Determine the number of bits in a negative number
I'd like to determine the number of bits (the position

Valid operations would be AND, OR, XOR, negation,
and one's compliment can be done as:

Dim minus1: minus1 = myvar - (myvar + 1)
Dim onesComp: onesComp = myvar XOR minus1
You could also use multiplication or division by 2
or other mathematical operators/functions, but
then sign extension comes into play.

possiblity that Microsoft would add native XML support to it's non-managed
