Find/replace with different text colour messes up
When doing a Find/Replace on a certain word that needs to have a different
colour than default - say, red - Excel incorrectly colours the whole cell
instead of just the word that was searched on.
To see this in action, try this:
1.. Open up a blank Excel sheet
2.. Enter some text in a few cells - "This is a test", for instance. Now,
let's try to use search/replace to colour only the word "test" in red.
3.. Open up Search/Replace
4.. On the "Search for"-line, enter: test
5.. On the "Replace with"-line, enter: test
6.. For the "R...Mails Combined
I mistakenly delete all mails from Inbox and then found them on the deleted Items and selected all and ask to move folders back to Inbox.
the problem is all mails were combined into one email and moved back in to Inbox as a single email.
How do i go back to the original version. How do i uncombined all the mails in to individual mails from the right recipient? Please help ASAP..

I'm trying to build a database in excel, and to aide data inputting, i'm

drop down menu for selection to populate the field so you don't have to type
it out again. I'm using excel because several people will need access to the

You can use Data Validation to create dropdown lists. There are

h...Merged Cell Character Limitation?
Is there a limitation to the number of characters that can
be entered into a merged cell? I have a document which
has a merged cell consisting of 12 rows and 9 coulmns (for
text entry). I set the cell to word wrap. However the
word wrapping ceases after roughly 1500 characters, and
the text is no longer visible to the user in the cell
(even though there appears to be room). If this is a
limitation, is there a known work around?
there's a maximum of 1024 characters per cell. Though you can increase
this by manually adding line breaks with ALT+ENTER

get copied too.
you can't delete the 'values' from a formula. The formula will always

don't drag. place your curser in the first row and column that you want to

An Excel 2000 workbook saved successfully but when attempting to open it
