Pivot table and counting.
I have a pivot table that gives me the number of rides done by a van. I can
have the pivot table return the number of rides, but what I need is the
number vans that participated for a certain day. Example, it is possible to
have 27 trips done by 18 vans, how can I count the number of vans and not
addup the van number?
Any help appreciated.

What information do you have in each column?

...Import text file from MS Word into MS Publisher.
I have created a text file in Word and a photo file in Publisher and would
like to merge the two. When I imported Word, it seemed to be totally
separate from the Publisher document - 7 pages of Word and 8 pages of photos.
I want the Word pages to precede the Publisher pages.
How is this done?

Hi. I would like to create a stacked bar chart that
actually has two stacked bars for each "X" category.
Series 1 is in b3 through b7
Series 2 is in c3 through c7
Series 3 is in d3 through d7
Series 4 is in e3 through e7
I would like to stack series 1 and 2 together and series 3
and 4 together.
Is there a way to do this?
As answered in microsoft.public.excel.misc:
If you stagger your data, you can create side-by-side stacked columns.

I have created a chart in Excel that tracks one of the

specific days and add text so I know what was the reason
the stock index was up or down on that day.
However, as my chart expands the arrows and text are no
longer associated with those day I initially intended it for.
Is there any way in Excel to associate text with specific
day and have it attached so that if the chart grows or
shrinks it will always be associated with that particular day.
The trick is to group the graphic element and the chart. When adding a

I recently upgraded to Publisher 2003. I can't find how to configure text boxes to overlap each other and keep the text in the same position. In my old version, there was a "check" box in the format text box to allow for this. I've tried different wrapping options in 2003, but can't figure it out.
You never have been able to do this in any version of Publisher.
You are dreaming about a Text Box - never existed.
You either have to place one Text Frame on the Background (Ctrl+M) or
convert one to a graphic.

When I paste some text from a web page into Word 2007, I can edit the text
but it does not print. It does not appear in print preview either. However I
can read it in Word. I notice the text has underlining. What gives?
Sounds as if the text is formatted as hidden. Select it and clear the
"Hidden" option in the Font dialog box (Ctrl+D). If you see a filled box
(instead of a check mark), just click the option twice to turn it off. (The
filled box indicates different settings in the selection; for example, some
text may be hidden while other text is not.)

How to avoid cursor jumping around to different positions
when I double-click in between two rows or two column ?
This is a feature of Excel! When you double click the border of the selected
cell, the cursor will go to the edge of the contiguous data on the sheet.
It's very useful for jumping to the start/end of data.
I don't know of a way to disable it.

I've got a relatively simple dialog that includes some static text along the

At another location with both WinNT4.0 at 1024x768 and Win2K at 1200x1024
