Excel-how (find/replace) for multifmat cells w/o changing fmat
For a client, i need to be able to find and replace words in cells with 2
formats. But when you replace them,it changes the format of the whole cell,
and not just what you changed. Is there any way to work around this without
changing the format after all of the find and replaces?
Saved from a previous post, but this one has some wordwrap problems fixed:
I think you'd have to keep track of each character's font attributes.
This works very slowly, but works:

myLen As Long

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.

If we could just cycle count based on item count

I have created a text file in Word and a photo file in Publisher and would

I want the Word pages to precede the Publisher pages.
How is this done?

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.

I have created a chart in Excel that tracks one of the
stock indexes. I have been able to point arrows to
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.

I've got a relatively simple dialog that includes some static text along the
border containing a mini-help message. On my two systems here with Win2K

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