ab., you can use a macro like this

Sub Protect_All_Sheets()

 Dim ws As Worksheet

For Each ws In ThisWorkbook.Worksheets


Next ws

 End Sub

Equation Evaluation at Multiple Points
I have seen this done but how to do it eludes me. What I'm looking for goes something like this. Fill a column with numbers (like 1, 2, 3,...) Fill the next column with the same equation. Somehow "associate" column 1 and 2 so that the equation is evaluated for the value in the first column.

HELP--Import multiple OE message stores into Outlook.pst
Need to start using Outlook 2003 to manage my mail because I've hit the wall with Outlook Express v6 storage limits. A couple of days ago I ran out of OE capacity and OE 'thoughtfully' decided to 'archive' (for lack of a better term, though I know this may be the wrong terminology to use) all my mail folders (about 200). What OE did was keep my In, Sent, and Drafts in a new '{identity}' folder, and it left my 200 filed mail folders in an old {identity} that I can no longer access. I want to merge both OE mail stores into *one* new .pst in Outlok 2003. archived...

Database model locks up
I have Visio 2003. When I try to load a new Database Model Diagram, Visio locks up every time. I'm running XP Professional x64. Is there something I'm missing? Thanks for any information. ------=_NextPart_0001_202DB7D5 Content-Type: text/plain Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit Apparently this can occur with Visio 2003 on 64-bit Windows systems, and is related to the way that Visio reads the Printer supported paper sizes. I understood that there was a fix on the Vista side that should avoid it - so you might want to check that you are running Vista SP1 with the latest update...

Text Boxes on Tabbed pages in Form
I have an entry form for a database, and it has 8 tabbed pages. I have recently added 2 new text boxes in order to record and gather more information. However, as I go through the tabbed pages, the 2 new boxes I created show on every page. I noticed that when I click on the page tab, all the other boxes and fields that change from page to page have a black box, seemingly to show that they are grouped. I then when to Format and tried to group in my two new boxes, but that is not an option. I was wondering what can be done so I can have my newly created items only appear on the first...

posting multiple worksheet .xls on webpage
I've run into a slight problem trying to post an excel spreadsheet to a webpage. The spreadsheet has 6 worksheets. I've placed a link to the .xls file in the webpage. If the user clicks on the link (to open the file), he/she only sees the first worksheet. If, however, he/she downloads the file by right-clicking the link and choosing to save the file, the entire file is downloaded, and the user can then see all worksheets. Why is this occurring, and what can I do to change this behavior? Thanks, Steve -- Using M2, Opera's revolutionary e-mail client: http://www.opera.com...

countif using multiple criteria #2
I am trying to calculate how many times an event happens with multiple criteria. As i understand it COUNTIF will not work. But SUMPRODUCT is the way to go. I have tried this but am unable to get to work. I am trying to find out how many time "new" occurs in a given month say from 1st Jan to 31st Jan so my formula read =sumproduct((J20:J100>=01/01/06),(j20:j100<=31/01/06),(g20:G100="new") What am I doing wrong? =SUMPRODUCT(--(J20:J100>=--"1/1/6"),--(J20:J100<=--"31/1/6"),--(G20:G100="new")) however a better way would be =SU...

Multiple Servers?
Can FRX pull data from multiple servers which are physically sitting in different locations? My company has done an acquisition. Does all of the GL data need to be sitting on the same server or can I consolidate financial statements from servers that are sitting in different cities? Thanks. Yes, It is possible to do a consolidation with data coming from different servers. In the System Specific tab of the company setup, you would require different DSNs (Data Source Names) for each server. However you mention that the servers are in different cities, so unless you have a fast link be...

multiple mail accounts/default and others
I have two mail accounts set up in my OL98/WinXP. I receive mail from both accounts but normally only send mail from my primary account which is also set as my default. But occassionally I will get mail on the secondary account (which is primarily an incoming mail only) that I want to reply to. But I find that when I reply to that incoming mail and then send/receive using that secondary (non-defualt) account the mail is not sent and remains in my outbox.

Splitting a single row into multiple copies
I have a very weird situation that I'm hoping some of you might have seen (and possibly resolved). We're migrating data from one system to another and the business rules have changed. System 1 allowed a user to create a record for an item with a quantity > 1. System 2 doesn't permit a quantity > 1 for certain items. Is there a way to create multiple rows in the source table (or an intermediate table) based on a list of item types which are not allowed to have a quantity > 1? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Joel j_racicot@hotmail.com wrote: >I have a very...

Multiple reports use same queries, how do I avoid rerunning querie
I'm working on several reports in an Access database and need some advice. I have three reports that are all based on a series of queries, and only the last one is specific to each report. It starts with a broad select query, then queries those results to reformat some data, then queries those results as a totals query and finally the report specific query runs to filter those results down to only that necessary for that specific report. I've built a macro to run all three reports, but each report calls all the underlying queries to be run. Because of the redundant querying, ...

Locked cells in IE
Hi, I need to open an Excel document from a web page. Active X controls are restricted and I cant pass the document as a parameter in a shortcut to the Excel executable because it needs to be generic (and would not e in this case). The problem Im having is that the Excel document contains locked cells that need to remain locked. When the document opens within the internet explorer interface the locked cells are not visible and the spreadsheet looks a bit disjointed. Does anyone know another way to open the document from a web page or how to make the cells visible? Many many thanks...

I recorded a macro to pull over one page at a time but as more things are added to the table the pages increase and when they increase I need to add a new block of code.

Notes Tab Hanging
When opening the Notes tab in any of the entities, sometimes all we get is a green circle going around like it's searching for data. It happens sporadically, not always on the same account or contact. I have been advised to press F5 to refresh the screen. This seems to work, but we would like to see a better fix. Thank you. Sorry I dont have a solution but I wanted to point out that you are not alone, we also have this issue. I think there is a bug that MS will have to fix.
