Has anyone found a way to "nudge" data labels in a PPT chart? I know I can

Does anyone know why copying text from a merged cell into another application (ie: the password field of a web site) copies additional blank characters. Is there a way to copy only the actual contents of the merged cell?
You can save time when working with merged cells:
1. Get angry first.
2. Don't use them.
The second is the option that most folks have come to use. Merged cells
cause some problems, and often down the road when you don't suspect they're

Is there anywhere I can view a list of the changes (if any) made to the
object model between Excel 2007 and 2010?
I have a couple of business-critical macros which I've been maintaining for
some time - when we moved from 2003 to 2007 it was quite painful since some
of the code was no longer working as it should and I had to re-write large
sections. Now we're moving to 2010 I'm hoping there's a reference I can use
to get an idea of what's changed and how much work is likely to be involved.
Have you looked at this?
I have a column of names. On any cell that ENDS with a
space followed by a single character (regardless of what
it is)I want to remove the space and character.
Ex: Williams, Henry B would change to
=if(mid(A1,len(A1)-1=" "), left(A1,len(A1)-2),A1)
