Better to run your AV to get this information. You dont have an up to date AV?
Hmmm. Go to www.housecall.trendmicro.com and run their online Scanner. Go to

: Yesterday I saw alll excel, word files size 0 Kb from Windows ...negative number format
I have a report uploaded to excel from a particular program used here at
work. In that program, negative numbers have the format of $###.00-, with
the minus sign at the end instead of the beginning.
When the data comes over to Excel the minus sign is still at the end of the
number. The text currently has a General Format with No Specific Number
Format. I have been manually moving the minus signs to the beginning in each
cell, then changing the Column to Currency Number Format which is very time
consuming. Is there a formula I can use in the Cell, Column and/or Worksheet

This is so frustrating! In my line of work, I get numerous attachments

Sometimes, when I right click on the attachment and select "Open" (or
double click on the attachment), I get an "Attachment Security
Warning" that makes me save the file to the hard drive, which I really
don't always want to do. However, sometimes, I can open the file with
no problem. Why would I even have a problem with a .txt file? Surely

...Change date format to European format
My computer is set to European date format but Excel is default to American
date format. Can someone advise how to change this default setting.
Have you restarted Excel since setting the system date formatting? Excel
takes its cue from the OS on launch. Also, double-check the Regional setting
in the System Prefs.
If those aren't the cause you'll need to be specific about your version &
update levels of both Office & OS X plus any other details you can supply.

I have 3 sets (budget, forecast and actual) of sales and profit numbers and
would like to show them like a dashboard ( two small circles for Budget and

how to make a start?

Thank you so much for that, it'll save loadsa time. I adjusted the formula
as the original sheet contined 11 columns of data.
Can you help with this part now?
The original sheet had dates in Column E (in the form Jan-03). Thay have
come through on the new sheet in the single column as 5 digit figures such
as 37622. Is there any way of getting
the original form of the date back, affecting just rows 5, 16, 27 etc...of
the new sheet? Perhaps I need to format just these rows on the NEW sheet.
A similar problem exists with column I of the original where the � sign has

Using Excel 2003. Excel cannot find match for data that exists in
spreadsheet when using the Find command. Any fixes?
Perhaps Excel cannot find a match and doesn't need fixing.
Your data may need fixing.
Do you have extra spaces in the data?
Are you looking for "entire cell contents"
Are you looking for an exact match as in case-sensitive?
Are you looking in formulas when you should be looking in values?

I would like to be able to "freeze" the formatting for the number of decimal places in cells - some will need to be integers, some will need three decimal places, etc. The problem comes when I paste in information; the number of decimal places I have formatted the cell for is overridden by the pasted-in data. Any ideas?

...Question about format of reply and format of message
I have two questions about OL2003:
1. Word is set as default editor. In replying message, sometimes I will get
extra lines on hitting Enter. It makes more space between paragraphs. Is
there any way to insert one line with one Enter?
2. I'd like to have special effect in replying text message sometimes, such
as change color of font, but it cannot be done unless changing the message
format to be rich text or HTML. If I uncheck Word as default editor, there
is an option in menu. What is it about with Word as editor?

Hi everyone, does anyone know how to do this? I hve a column of figures
some positive and some negative. I want to format them so taht th
negative numbers are expressed in (brackets) and also so that th
column itself is decimal aligned, so even if I don't use decimal place
the brackets "stick out". I know Word does this in tables, but I can'
seem to make Excel do it. Help! Thanks, Vicky. :confused

...Excel Upgrade question
We are using MS Office 2000 Professional. We would like to upgrade only
the Excel 2000 to 2003. Can we just upgrade Excel without upgrading the
whole MS Office suite? If so, should we expect any conflicts when we run
MS Word 2000, PowerPoint 2000, etc or can Excel run nicely on it's own?
Our systems are 2 year old XP Pro and Home versions. Thanks for any

Is it possible to format a smartlist field? Let's say from 2 decimals to 4
This is only possible in SmartList Builder SmartLists, not in the 'out of

Name of a field, then click the blue arrow in the header to go to Set Field
Options. For number fields there will be a tab called Decimal Places.

windows mail won't send either MS Excel 97-2003 or 2007 formats if I try to
send either by itself. I have to attach same file I want to send in both
formats. Then, only the 97-2003 format actually gets through. Either way, I'm
getting notice that Mail can't send one or more attachments. Any suggestions
to help eliminate the glitch would be most appreciated.
Windows Mail doesn't care what the attachment is. But make sure the
file you are trying to attach is not open anywhere else (i.e. in Excel).

I have received money 2003 with my laptop last year and used it ever since.

2004 version just yet and so I uninstalled it and reinstalled the 2003
The problem is that I can't open my money file anymore or restore the
