1) Not sure what you're aiming to do with the checkboxes, but if you right
click on the toolbar area, you will get a list of available toolbars.  You
want either the 'forms' toolbox or the 'controls' toolbox.  Generally those
from the 'forms' toolbox are easier to handle for a novice, but the activeX
controls from the 'controls' toolbox are more feature rich. You simply click
on the checkbox and draw it on the worksheet, re-sizing it with the handles.

2) Excel is a spreadsheet, which is to be used predominantly for
calculation, analysis, what-if scenarios and charting.  It is limited as a
database because it has only 256 columns and 65536 rows, although it is
similar in as much as it has rows (records) and columns (fields), similar to
a database.  Access is a database, able to collect huge quantities
(millions) of records in multiple tables, which can then be linked (form
relationships), to make a true relational database.  It displays and
collects data by means of forms and reports.  Both products are easily
integrated however, so you can collect huge quantities in Access and send it
to, or bring it into XL, (or Word for that matter), for analysis,
calculation or charting.  All of the se operations are far easier in Excels
environment (IMHO)

The differences could go on for ever, but that's just a short example.  It
never ceases to amaze me what XL is used for, much of which is driven by
it's relative ease of use, however, if you can get to grips with Access's
relative perceived complications, they work great together in their own

How to create a stacked bar, line combination chart
I am having trouble creating a stacked bar and line combination chart. The standard excel charts offer a bar and line chart option, but does not seem to offer a stacked bar and line option. Has anyone done this type of chart? I just asked a very similar question, but didn't get any answer. However, I did figure out a way to get it to do what I wanted. 1. Start with a plain stacked bar graph and chart everything you want in that format. If you choose 2 columns for your X-labels, Excel is smart and will give you 2 levels of X-labels and will space your chart columns according to the...

Custom LDAP/OPATH query to create custom address list?
I'm going to ask this again because it seems to be a big problem going to exchange 2007. How does one create a custom LDAP query to an external server to build a custom address list? It would be nice to be able to create custom address lists built on LDAP queries to Active Directory or OpenLDAP, etc. Can this be done? Only recipients in Active Directory can appear in Address Lists. You would have to import external recipients into AD as Contacts to be able to do this. -- Bharat Suneja MVP - Exchange NEW blog location: ------------------------...

How to tell when Bill Payment is done electronically vs. paper check?
Am I correct in thinking that if I pay a bill via an epay, and I never get a paper check in return from my bank, then the payee was paid electronically, i.e., the payment to the payee never involved any paper check anywhere through the process? I recently switched from MSN Bill Pay to my bank's bill pay service (I send payments from within M03 for both). There's a piece of information missing for me when I switched to using my bank as the bill payer: I don't have a list of 'participating billers' (such as on the MSN Bill Pay website). Unless I determine who the t...
