File open from Windows Explorer fails after Get External Data
Using Excel 97, is anyone aware of a problem where, after having "got
external data" from a SQL database into a spreadsheet, an Excel file
will not open from Windows Explorer. I receive no error messages, the
open simply does nothing. The only way of opening files is by using
the File Open within Excel or closing Excel and re opening all files
without "getting external data" at any time.

I have a workflow on an appointment close that updates its opportunity
if the owner of the appt is different than the owner of the opp the opp
resets the owner of the appt to the owner of the opp.
For example -- appt set and closed -- condition not met to update opp --
owner stay what is was
appt set and closed -- condition MET to update opp owner changes for that
appointment and the other appt to the owner of the opp
whats weird is when the appt closes it stays the same owner -- when the opp
is reopened is when they are changed

Looking for some good tips on how to do this more efficiently. My main
problem is how to quickly format row labels with spaces.
In brief, here's how I do it, which, admittedly, involves drudgery.
For a table in, say, .pdf format, I copy the table into an MS Word
document. Then, doing a search-and-replace, I substitute semicolons for
the spaces in order to de-limit the data prior to exporting it into Excel.
Of course, this also inserts semicolons between the words in the row
labels, e.g., "Number;of;things."
I then manually delete the semicolons--and the spaces they occupy--...In Excel- change the order of a name? Bill Gates to Gates, Bill

...Change Format of Active Cell
In Excel 2007, on WinXP SP3,
I would like to be able to change the format of the currently active
cell to make it more easily visible at a quick glance. Currently, the
active cell is just outlined in a thick black line. Is there a way to
change conditional formatting to change the fill color and/or the
outline color of the currently selected/active cell?
Thanks in advance,
PS: Sorry for cross posting - I accidentally posted this in
excel.programming but meant to post here.
Maybe changing the gridline color could make a difference...

I have a workbook that has data imported through an iqy file in column

The problem is that when you use "refresh" data to import newly adde

through F will update, but the data in columns G through G will no
stay with the follow the data in the column.
Is there a way to anchor a row of data? Example:

In trying to get live data into an Excel database using a web query, I
found a streamed source of data. However this is in a java format.
It resembles a table, and I was wondering if I could import the data
into each respective cell in a spreadsheet, or somehow link a Cell
reference to the Java. Any ideas?
I have a spreadsheet with all my math and an html page open with my
data?!?! Close but no cigar! The java is not in an importable table (as
typically required in a web query).
THis java is streamed and not limited to the Web-query 'refresh'.

Two questions: 1. Under disk management, I marked one of my drives 'active'.
What does that mean and how do I mark it as not active, as in revert it back
to whatever state it was in before - or do I care? 2. This one has been a
major annoyance. No matter which USB slot I plug it into or which drive I
plug in first, one of my external hard drives always sets to 'J' when I need
it permanently 'I'. So annoying! As is, I keep having to change the drive
letters and paths each time - 'I' to 'J' and 'J' to 'I' What gives?!
