``` Sounds like a good time to mention downloading Peter Noneley's
Excel Function Dictionary -- http://homepage.ntlworld.com/noneley
which is an Excel workbook with heaps of functions.   Not as good as
heaps of money but better than what I normally think of that may be heaps.

Export number without decimals
hI, When I export my data from a query in csv format, one of the fields which has 13 digit numbers diplays decimal places when infact the data in the database does not have any decimals. How can I force this field in my query to format with zero decimals so it exports correctly. Eg. currently doing 1310010010011.00 want to show 1310010010011 Bruce Bruce It might be a bit of a kludge, but you could convert the number to text (CStr()) in a query before exporting the query. -- Regards Jeff Boyce www.InformationFutures.net Microsoft Office/Access MVP http://mvp.support.microsoft.com/...

Formatting Page Numbers
I am formatting a manual that supposed to have page numbers starting 0.0, 0.1, ... then 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, etc. with an accompanying TOC. I am perfectly willing to put the page numbers in manually to make sure that they are done accurately, but I cannot figure out how to turn off the automatic page numbers or format them the way I need to. There must be something I can do with section breaks, but the revision date is alternating vertically on the side of the pages because it's a manual. Thoughts on how I can make the page numbers work out? What dictates the change from the ...

How can I display negative numbers in a floating bar graph?
I have two categories where the minimum value is a negative number. When Excel graphs these two categories, it starts at zero, rather than the negative number. I can't figure out how to get Excel to display the numbers accurately. Keeping in mind that a floating chart is a stacked chart, follow the procedures on this page: http://peltiertech.com/Excel/Charts/StackedColumnsAboveAndBelow.html In short, the bars cannot cross the axis, so you need two series, one for the positive part of a bar, and another for the negative part. - Jon ------- Jon Peltier, Microsoft Excel MVP Pelti...

Does Smartlist have max # of records it looks at?
I created a report through SmartList builder and when I run it, the information stops at 12/7/09. It does not show the rest of the year regardless of what date criteria I use.

Sorting numbers doesn't work correctly
I rarely use Excel, but I need to sort a spreadsheet in which one of the columns has only numbers. For example: 121.593, 121.58, 121.641, 121.61. My expectation was that Sort Ascending would produce 121.58, 121.61, 121.593, 121.641. Instead, the sort produces the following sequence: 121.58, 121.593, 121.61, 121.641. In other words, it doesn't seem to understand that the two-digit numbers (after the point (.)) go before the three digit numbers. Is there a workaround? I don't think I understand.. why would 121.61 go before 121.593 if you were sorting ascending.. -- Bearacad -...

Max decimal places
Does MS Excel have a maximum number decimal places. I know that I can format up to 30 decimal places. (This is not a formatting question.) Is 30 the default or are the decimal places infinite?

Numbers won't right-align
I have a fairly simple spreadsheet with 30-40 calculatrions. Some of the results appear to have a space on the right hand end. Most of these are calculations, but some are literal numbers.
