I'm need to make a automatic axis format within excel.
The number of rows is depending of a imported file.
No problem to get the max. number of rows.

You may, also consider to "rem" all the Macro commands by adding a Preceding

When I open a spread sheet, the menu bar shows the fill color as yellow.
When I change it to another color or "no fill" and use it, everything is
fine. However, when I close the spread sheet and open it again, the yellow
color is shown again. Shouldn't it remain the same until I change it again
or select "no fill'?
No, that is the way Excel behaves

i am really struggling to create a macro to carry out the following.

see the code by pressing Alt F11 but not the data.
I created a blank db and imported the mdb so I could see the tables.

When I look at the code. I don't see anything that sets properties or

There are no macros in this, just the forms and associated code with

The code below runs fine in Excel 2007, but 2003 does not like it.
I`m not sure why. It gives me a runtime error and says it is unable

I tried commenting out the first line (WS.Cells.Locked = False) and
changing the second statement to"

However, this did not help.
Does anyone see what I am doing wrong? Thanks, Alan

An Excel spreadsheet is being exported from a SQL database that I cannot
change, so I need to accomplish this in Excel.
Sometimes, some of the many numbers contain a dash which Excel then
interprets as a date. I can remove the dash programatically, but the number
is not correct afterwards.
For example, the number imported is 05-9078 which is displayed in Excel as
May-78, but is actually stored as 5/1/9078. Changing the cell format to
number or text gives me 2621833.

It seems like a simple thing to do but I can't find a function anywhere.
If you enter something in ONE cell it is automatically in a row and a
column. So, perhaps a bit more explanation is in order.
