I spoke too soon about VS2005 Vista SP1 being more reliable; doing rather trivial
single-threaded app debugging, I've managed to crash it six times in the last hour. Each
time it seems to crash for a different reason, or at least as the consequence of some
completely different action on my part.
For those who have been using it, however, I've got a couple questions:
It must be run as administrator, which requires an administrator password. What I'd like
to do is set myself up to run as a normal user, but with the privileges of running as

I'm making a stack chart based on a quality report. My X-Axis is displayed
(Weeks) The Y-Axis displays defect counts by week. There are close to 20
different categories a defect can fall into, however, most of the time there
are 5 or 6 categories that have data week to week and some catergories that
have not had a defect yet. How do I make the stack chart legend only show
the categories that have data attached to it with a number larger than zero.
This way the legend won't display all 20 categories, but only the ones that
have a value. For Example, let's say I h...Issues with linking to exported source files

Shared workbook and VBA problem
I am new at this Excel stuff and I am hitting my head on a silly
problem that I am sure many have seen before.
I wrote a very simple spreadsheet where I use the Calendar control to
pick some dates. Everything was fine until I decided that I needed to
share it on the network with other users.
As soon as I share it the calendar control stops working. I get a

That's because the first thing I try to do is position the calendar.

How can I make new/downloaded design templates available from the

Perhaps you have entered more than 53 characters in the file path to your

Try re-naming folders in the path to come up with less than 53 characters then
