Extra Blank Lines

The following macro imports a text file and  sorts horse races in time 
order and puts a blank line in between each race time (which is at the 
end of the code), which it does admirably.  I had some valuable help 
with this project from group members recently.

However, it does create quite a few blank lines en bloc.  It's not 
really a problem, as I search them out and do a delete.

Below is the code which a member might use in order to find the cause of 
the blank lines?

Sub Macro1()

ActiveSheet.QueryTables.Add(Connection:="TEXT;C:\Simon\newratings.txt", _
         .Name = "newratings"
         .FieldNames = True

         .PreserveFormatting = True
         .RefreshOnFileOpen = False
         .RefreshStyle = xlInsertDeleteCells
         .SavePassword = False
         .SaveData = True
         .AdjustColumnWidth = True
         .RefreshPeriod = 0
         .TextFilePromptOnRefresh = False

         .TextFileTabDelimiter = True
         .TextFileSemicolonDelimiter = False
         .TextFileCommaDelimiter = True
         .TextFileSpaceDelimiter = False
         .TextFileColumnDataTypes = Array(1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1)
         .TextFileTrailingMinusNumbers = True
         .Refresh BackgroundQuery:=False
     End With
     ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = 
     Selection.AutoFill Destination:=Range("K3:K601"), Type:=xlFillDefault
     Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, 
SkipBlanks _
         :=False, Transpose:=False
     Application.CutCopyMode = False
     Selection.Sort Key1:=Range("K3"), Order1:=xlAscending, 
Header:=xlGuess, _
         OrderCustom:=1, MatchCase:=False, Orientation:=xlTopToBottom, _
     Selection.Delete Shift:=xlToLeft
     ActiveWindow.SmallScroll Down:=-15
     For i = Cells(Rows.Count, "a").End(xlUp).Row To 2 Step -1
If IsNumeric(Left(Cells(i, 1), 1)) Then Rows(i).Insert
Next i
End Sub

Landed Costs ability to apply different rates per line item
Currently on the Landed Cost screen, you can enter a landed cost amount and it will be applied to all items being received on that receiving transactions. However there are times that one needs to apply a different rate for each line item and at this time it appears the only means to do this is to receive each line item seperately so a different landed cost can be applied. Therefore, this is not time productive for our users. We should be able to apply a different rate per each line item and receive all line items at the same time. ---------------- This post is a suggestion for Micr...

Send mail on behalf of UserX with UserX's mailbox as extra mailbox
Hi, Running Exchange and Outlook 2000 I need a solution for this scenario. I have some users A and B who have UserX's mailbox configured as a extra mailbox in their Outlook client, so they can respond to mail being recieved by UserX (i.e. a helpdesk account). These same users A and B need to send mail "on behalf of" UserX so our disclaimer software (eXclaimer) adds users A and B signature to email being send by UserX's mail address. In this scenario "Send as" will add UserX's signature, not users A or B's signature. Assigning only "Send on behal...

Extra space between paragraphs when sending
Outlook 2007 adds extra “line feeds” between paragraphs on all outgoing messages. I can’t seem to stop it and it is slowly driving me mad. People getting my e-mails must think I can’t write. I have checked (“don’t add extra space…”) in the style formats. Doesn’t help. The composed messages look fine. They get changed when they are sent. Sometimes happens on incoming mail. I would go back to Office 2003 but too many file extensions are now different. If I can’t fix this I may go to a server based mail system. Why MS made this change is beyond me. It’s in the same category as c...

Increasing the Vertial Size of a 3-D Line Chart
Hi Everyone I have a chart that looks good if I've only got a few items on the category (x) axis (for days). However when I include more days the height of the chart decreases leaving a lot of white space at the top and bottom of the chart. I have increased the chart size but this only helps a bit. I think what I need to do is somehow change the feature that automatically sets the vertical scale so I can set it to manual. I realise that this will change the relationship between the X and Y axis but this is what I want to do. Hope this make sense and someone can help Thank you Ma...

Extra line space
I have run into the problem several times, where I have several lines of words in seperate merged cells and it appears to be spaced correctly, but when I print there is an extra line space in the document. Is there some way to correct this? I have the row height so it matches the amount of space needed, but it is adding an extra line on the printed version..... The only fix I know of for this is to manually adjust something to make it look nice--either columnwidth or rowheight. And I don't think fixing it for your specific printer is any assurance that it'll be fixed for the pers...

Resizing a Line Chart
I have a line chart with three months of data spanning across 17 series. The chart has no legend, but a Data Table with Legend Keys turned on. Due to there being 17 series & the data table turned on the chart is quite tall. I would like to resize the plot area making it a bit squattier. Every time I try to resize it using the upper center handle it shrinks it, but it also pulls the bottom up which crops off the lower items in the data table. Is there a way to "squish" the plot area virtically without adjusting the data table? You might try eliminating the built-in data ta...
