keyboard shortcuts problem

Certain keyboard shortcuts have stopped working in my Excel 2003. 
CTRL+X, CTRL+C, and CTRL+V no longer work.  They still work from the
toolbar menu or when right clicking.  Other shortcuts like CTRL+A and
CTRL+Z still work.  Does anyone have any ideas?

Do those shortcut keys work in other applications?

If yes, maybe you have a developer who doesn't want you to cut, copy or paste.

If you close excel, then open a different workbook, do the shortcut keys work?

Pub 2002 Printing problem
I have used Publisher for some time now but after a PC upgrade to XP I purchased and installed Office (2002) XP and separately MS Publisher (2002) XP. I have version 2002 10.412P.4219 SP-2 installed. I now find that everything I try to print from Publisher - even any of the preset pages - is offset horizontally to the right by about 6.5 cms. The top and bottom margins are OK, it's just that the whole image appears to be shifted to the right. This applies whether I use my new Panasonic KX-P7100 laser printer or my older Epson Stylus Photo 870. Print Preview always shows the im...

text wrap problem
I'm running MS Outlook 2003. When I send an e-mail message, it wraps the lines in the text of the message to 72 characters, even though I have it configured to wrap at 132 characters. This causes forwarded messages to have their lines broken up awkwardly (when forwarded, a message with 75-character-long lines will be broken up so that every other line consists of a single word), and causes long URLs to break when I send them in e-mail. I'd really like to turn the word wrap feature off entirely. Exchange server already set "Never use" wrap Are any Exchange 5.5 se...

Create an exel 2007 shortcut key
How do I create an excel shortcut key? For instance, I want to create a shortcut key for Moving or Copying a worksheet. I added it to the quick access toolboar, but cannot figure out to create a shortcut key for that command. Thank you for your help.

Autonumber created.. problems in the future?
