coloured cells #2
I have a user that created a spreadsheet that is
highlighted by colours in different cells. On his home
computer he can see the colours but at work the
spreadsheet becomes pure black and white. If he prints
the spreadsheet at work, it is in colour. He used to see
the colours on the screen at work also. He is using
Excel 2002. Any ideas?
Look if he has set this
Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Accessibility Options.

Create a second text box with the merge field in, displace it slightly, send
it behind the first text box and change the font colour.

Excel 2002, WinXp Home
My spreadsheet has columns for Number, Date, Text, etc.
When I select a column to sort, Excel expands the
selection to include all cells (as it should). When I try
to sort I get the error message about merged cells having
to be the same size. I looked at KB291063 but that
doesn't help. The cels are NOT merged so why do they have
to be the same size? What size is the error refering to
(# of characters, absolute value, ?)? How do I un-merge
non-merged cells so I can sort?
Firstly I would never rely on Excel to expand a selection to include the data I

Hi - I have 2 Q's for anyone happy to help...
1. Is it possible to change the column widths in some windows? I
specifically would like to change the default width in the discount screens
(Settings --> Product Catalog --> Discount Lists --> Discounts) so that
"Begin Quantity", "End Quantity" and "Percentage" are all displayed on screen
with a much small colum width.
2. How can I cange the default decimal accuracy in the smae discount
screens from 5 decimal places to just 1 ?

that although I enter the correct date into the excel sheet, the date from
the last month shows up on some of the units. but not on all! that is what
seems so odd.
I checked to see the correct dates were entered and checked the

3. touch ALT-ENTER
4. enter the new line.

I want to make a backup of the exchange server 2003 files
with the standard backup utility. Everything seems to be
oke. But when we restore the backup there is no
difference. The old files stil are the same.
Are you doing a backup and restore of the databases or binaries?
If you restore an online backup (databases) to a running server it will end
up the way it was before the restore. So if your trying to recover mail you
will need to remove the log files since these include the delete
transactions and then do the restore. The option "no loss" means it will

Starting with a column of ~30 numbers, I'm looking for a way to have
Excel find all combinations that sum to a target value +/- a specified
range width. (For example, I may be looking for all combinations that
sum to 1000 +/- 10.)
I've found some code from Tushar Mehta that finds a list of all
possible matches that sum to a number, but it doesn't allow me to put
in a range to find sums to within a delta of this value. I tried
modifying the code to add this in, but I couldn't get it to work
right. Here is the code: http://www.tushar-mehta.com/excel/templates/match_values/index....separating multiples digit in a cell into individual cell
I have a series of number sets. When I copied from the MS Word and pasted them into Excel, all of the numbers in the set are pasted into one cell. I need those numbers to be in an individual cell. How do I do it? I think MS Excel 2003 was able to do it. I currently have Excel 2007. Please help.

I have an MFC server app. When I accept a connection and obtain a
CSocket, is there anyway to find out which IP the client used to
connect to my server. For example if a client from the machine
connects to the server using 127.0.0.1 or if someone on the subnet
connects using 192.168.1.1 and so on. I am hoping that it is stored in
the CSocket somewhere, if it is not this might not be the correct group
for the question.
I use low level calls API instead of CAsyncSocket/CSocket but from what I
remember Accept() method is similar to accept() API. The Accept() method

&q...cell in cell formulation possible???
Let's say I have a string of text in a cell, something like:
"We may charge you $XXX fee if item is not returned in good condition."
Is it possible to make that XXX a formula/calculation (based upon
information entered in another cell)?

I have a spreadsheet that is regularly upadated overwriting columns,
however I need to enter comments on the sheet referenced on the
content. The next time I update the sheet the referenced cell will
move down a row, but I need the comment to stay with the content rather
than the cell.
If the values that you're commenting are unique, you may want to toss the
comments and create a table in another worksheet.
Then use an =vlookup() formula to return the "comment" to the adjacent cell.
