Word 2010 beta: Cannot save my Normal.dotm file
Using the Word 2010 beta on Win7. I cannot save my Normal.dotm file - at
least not usefully. I can open the file, edit it, add macros to it, whatever,
and it will save (in the folder directory, the .dotm file will show a change
in file size). But when I close Word, or if I open a new document in Word, the
Normal.dotm file is reset to the default, losing any changes I've made.
I can save and use other .dotm templates; but not the default Normal.dotm

Tell us what's in a1:a30. If they are all even numbers, you should
definitely get an even result. But if they include minutes, you can get an
odd number of hours.

Each time i try to enter a number range, for example, 8-
10, in Excel, it constantly re-formats it to a date. If I

ALL auto-formatting, but that's probably asking too
much. How do I disable this frustrating feature?
When you enter "8-10" in a cell, that's not strictly a number but Excel
thinks you mean a date so converts it as such.

Is this possible?
Yes it's possible but all of the chart title needs to be in the cell. So you
may need to use a helper cell and concatenate text and value.

Suddenly I am getting the following message when I try to close a workbook:
