I don't think you need to use Form...zeros are being added to my numbers
Hi when i type a number into a cell ie 6 when i leave the cell a zero is
automatically added. I dont want this zero to be added
In front or at the end?
a. Tools|Options|Edit tab, uncheck Fixed Decimal
b. Format the cell as General

Hi Niek Otten your fix ...Do not want zero values to plot in a chart
If I have a chart -(line chart) for a spreadsheet and there are some cells that are zero as a result of a formula what can I do to not have those zero values plot on the chart? I have included the condition with the formula to have it display as a blank instead of a zero, but the value of the formual still plots
Thanks for any input
try the following in your formula:
the #NA reult is not plotted in your chart. If you like you can hide
these errors with conditional formats

I have a problem that the Mailbox Store under First Storage Group on our

eseutil /d "D:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\mdbdata\priv1.edb" /tf:\tempdfrg.edb

is too large that the process not yet finish in the required period. I force

There is a column of numbers let us say in column A.
In A10 there is a number.
In A21 there is a number.
In A54 there is =A10+A21 which results in a number.
I want to put B90=+A54.... well I type +A54 in B90 and I guess that's the
result ... or is it simply =A54?? no matter.
When I do this, the result is zero in B90!
When I put the same formula in quite a few other cells I get the same
result....hide zeros in report...

You are describing something that appears on a printed report. Without some
idea of how the report is designed, I can only guess...
You have a control on the report that displays something that equals (or
defaults) to zero.
If you don't want to see that, set the control property .Visible=False. Or
delete the control.

&quo...Y axis to cross at zero
I have line graph of sines of angles 0 deg to 360 deg. I need the X axis to
show X-axis corresponding to angles 0, 90, 27, 360. But if I set
tick-marks every 90, the labels read 1,91,181,271,361.
This is because the "Scale" dialogue has "Value (Y) axis crosses at
category number: 1". This cannot be set to zero; it must be in the range 1
to 39999. How can I set the X-axis to commence at zero?
What point am I missing here???

All you need to do is go into Design View, highlight the field and go to the

news:OQGyA4V...displaying leading zeros
Is there a way to display leading zeros in a number and still have it
formatted as a number? We have account numbers for customers that often
start with a zero. When analyzing activity in Excel, the leading zeros are
dropped. It would be helpful if they would show.
Apply a custom format to the cells of 00000000 to display the numbers
as 8 digits, with leading zeros where appropriate.
Hope this helps.

Despite formula I use (for example the most simple SUM) it always shows me
zero result even it should show a lot more. Values in other cells (cells that
I sum) are in number format. Why this happens??
It doesn't matter whether the cells are FORMATTED to DISPLAY as number;
what matters is whether the CONTENTS are numbers. My guess is that they are
text that might look like a number. If one of your numbers is in A2, what
do the formulae =ISTEXT(A2) and =ISNUMBER(A2) show?

I'm new to graphs and what I have is a date range (1-Jan-08 - 31-Jan-08)
with a dollor amount in the next cell. The bar graph is picking up the "zero"
or blank ("")cells and is ploting them on the graph. How can I have the graph
not plot the "zero" or blank ("") values?
I did the flowing to the amounts:=IF(N18=0,NA(),N18)
and that remove the "$0" from the graph, but it's still pickup the dates.
The NA() trick only suppressed the point/bar/column.
It does not remove the point from the series.

I am trying to plot some data on a line graph, and the data for th
x-axis has a starting value of zero. I want the data to be plotted s
that the first value is plotted right on the y-axis itself. Instead
Excel moves it over to the left, and adds an extra number to the
axis, which I DON'T want it to do. I tried changing this in the Scal
window under Format Axis..., but it won't let me change it. Eve
though the data for the x-axis starts out as zero, it still plots th
first point over 1.

U...Force subreport size
I am using SSRS 2008 and have a report with 2 subreports which work fine.
However, I want to force them to be a certain size and not shrink. Is there
a way to do this on the main report? I could not find a "Can Shrink" type of
property. Or do I need to put them inside a rectangle in order to do this?
I found a solution. Put subform inside a rectangle and put a hidden verticle
line inside far right and hidden horizontal line in lower right. It works
great as the rectangle is "forced to always be a certain size.
