How do I preserve text color when combining cell data
I'm using "&" to combine data from multiple cells. Each cell has text of a
different color and I want to preserve those colors in the new combined cell.
The new combined cell is formatting all the text to one color.
Anyone have any suggestions on how to maintain the separate colors in the
A formula can only return a value to a cell, so you cannot return formatting
=A1&A2 will return the value of A1 and A2 to the cell that has that formula
entered in it.

I've got a few complaints from about 4 users where e-mail they see in their

We're using Exchange 2003 with SP2 installed and all the users have Office

Because the spreadsheet is large I used filtering and visible cell commands

OK, thanks in advance. I always screw this up so here it goes:
Three tables: Line, Part, LinetoPart
I could set these tables up differently, but Part A can be ran on
Line1, 2, or 3.
LinetoParts has autonumber pkLinetoPart, fkLine, and fkPart.
So how do I keep the many table from duplicating say an entry stating
that Part A to Line 1? Am I missing the boat here?
In the LinetoParts pkParts can duplicate and pkLine can duplicate, but
I don't want a duplicate record with the same pkPart and pkLine.
