Outlook 2007
I upgraded from Outlook 2003 to 2007 yesterday on my home pc - connected to the net via a cable modem. With 2003, when I closed Outlook, nothing would send and receive so I could check mail during the day via the web (at work) or on my phone. With 2007, even with Outlook closed, it's still sending and receiving email. I did see in the help file that you can set it to send/receive every 1440 minutes - but when I'm travelling, I never want it to connect at home - until I get home and tell it to. How can I set Outlook NEVER to send/receive when it's closed? Thanks, Susan susankr...

data range props
I have a problem with external data. In the Data Range Properties, under Data Layout. There are 3 options after 'If the number of rows in the data range changes upon refresh:' 1 - Insert cells for new data, delete unused cells 2 - Insert entire rows for new data, clear unused cells 3 - Overwrite existing cells with new data, clear unused cells.

refer to data on multiple worksheets using hlookup/look up data on many worksheets?
Hi I have data on many worksheets in the same workbook. Is it possible to look up data on multiple worksheets using Hlookup, which means can the second argument in the formula refer to multiple sources? If it is not possible, is there any other way I can do so? I would like to select and display data according to a fixed order, whereby the data is located in one of many worksheets in the same workbook. For eg, I have stock returns of many firms in many worksheets. Say I would like to display in a single worksheet the returns of Firm D, Firm Z, Firm R; whereby the data of these 3 fir...

can I make a bell curve from this data?
A colleague at work asked if I could put some simple Excel data into a bell curve. I don't know what I'm doing, math-wise, and I don't know if my data even lends itself to a bell curve. Here it is: We have 19 cars in our division. There are usually 3 cars that are driven a lot and 3 that don't get driven much, so we periodically rotate the highs and lows so that mileage somewhat evens out. So what I have is the annual mileage for each car. My colleague is hoping this will look great on a graph. Can this be put into a bell curve format? Or would some faux work-around make it l...

OfficeQuestions looking for feedback and advice from Outlook users
Hi all, I am a long-time Outlook user and have used resources like Google and newsgroups for years to help find answers to my questions about many MS Office applications. My biggest frustration with using these types of resources was that it is cumbersome to sift through search engine results to find the answer I needed, and newsgroup threads make it difficult to pick out the best answer among all of the responses. So, I started a new site that I hope will serve the MS Office community by providing an inviting platform for asking and answering questions about MS Access, Excel, InfoPath and ...

installation advice
I will son be moving from XP and Outlook Express to Windows 7 and therefore maybe to Windows Live Mail or Thunderbird. I therefore need some advice. Being paranoid, I prefer not to participate in cloud computing and would like to have all my mail on my PC and my ISP's mail server. I have POP3 accounts. Is there a way to a) install WLMail without its components (like calendar, etc.) which may reside on MS servers? b) have it place my storage folders on my E: "data partition" and not in the default C: (documents and settings) drive location?

Data Validation #15
Hi all, a really picky question, why does the data validation allow a space after the list value? for instance, I have data validation to allow "yes" or "no" and I have some other sumproducts looking to these cells to give me figures, but it will allow you to put "yes " or "no " which the sumproduct wont pick up with the blank space in. can this be prevented? and why does it allow the blank space?

Formula/Function for parsing data
I have a column of data which is not consistent. Examples of the data in the column: C- Name, CO- Name, CN- Name, Name, etc. I want to write a formula/function that will automatically return only the name (first and last). I know I can convert my data from text to columns or even write a macro to do this but I don't want anyone to have to remember to do anything. I want the name to be returned once the data is pasted into a template. Thanks.

Ex2k3 - resource rooms - autoaccept agent
Hi, We use the autoaccept agent to manage most of our meeting rooms, the problem is we have a room that holds say 15 people, and users are booking 1to1 meeting (2 people!). Is it possible to write an eventsink to check these on delivery for the number of invitees? Thanks Matthew Yes you should be able to do this if you use a synchronous event sink and you adjust the priority on the existing Autoaceept registration so that the your sink is notified first before the autoaccept sink. To get the number of attendees on a message request you should be able to loop through the IAttendee ...

Re: Compare chart
Hi, I need to compare two products that are described by a set of standard attributes each. If all the attributes were same range of values that would be extremel easy task - you take a radial or line chart and consider it done. The trouble is each attribute has completely different range of values One of them is 0-1, often a few percents, while other ranges 0-10 000 As a result if I put it in the same serie and use the same scale i will not work properly. Moreover there is no correlation between th attributes, so one cannot forecast the scale limits. Any ideas how to show this? Thanks, ...

Setting custom chart causes plot area to collapse
Hi, When i make a chart template and set it as a user-defined default chart, and press F11 to apply it to a selection, the chart appears with the plot area collapsed to a thin line along the axis. When i re-start excel, this also applies to other charts, not only to the one made by F11 - even in the preview of the chart wizard, charts appear as a thin horizontal line. The only way i can make charts then is to copy a previous one and change its data - very time consuming! Do you know what could be the problem, and how to fix it? thanks! ...

inverting data #2
Please help, I'm stuck! I conducted a survey where respondants each gave answers to 30 questions using a Likert scale i.e. they answered either 1,2,3,4 or 5 to each question.

For the answers to these questions, I need to reverse the answers. If the repondant answered 1, I want to record 5, if 2 then 4, if 3 then 3, if 4 then 2, if 5 then 1. Is there an...

set default focus to nothing?
In a pop-up form with several fields, some users are typing in data to the field with the default focus, before they look to see what field they should actually be typing in. The result is incorrectly changed data. I would like to force the users to choose a field before they start typing. But it seems the default focus is always going somewhere (1st item on tab control). Apparently I can't set it to a label. The best I've been able to do is create a dummy text box & set the default focus there. But there must be a more graceful solution? Thanks in advance. I ...

Upgrading Advice
For many years, I have been using Publisher 97 with Windows 95, without problem. Unfortunately, the time has come to upgrade, which at my age (and the fact that I am basically a Luddite), will involve a lot more than just a steep learning curve. I will be upgrading to Windows XP and Publisher 2003. If anybody can remember Publisher 97, do they think I will have many poblems integrating my Publisher 97 files? Also, I have a website created in Publisher at and exported to the web using the Publisher Web Wizard. The only (minor) problem I have had with this was th...

BTW: A feature(s) request: It would be great to be able to get category data grouped quarterly (not just monthly) It would be great to see a horizontal report with categories displayed monthly and quarterly (listed across the top) Finally, sorting a report by perhaps two or three criteria would be great (as I see it, it is only one creterion currently) Thanks ...
