Will someone help me correct it to loop indefinely? Thanks

I have a workbook that I've just added data validation to one cell. FWIW,
the data validation is based on a named range. Here's the (perceived)
problem. When I've set up data validation in the past, the selection is the
same width as the cell. In this case, the list starts almost a full cell
width to the left. What am I missing?
In Excel2003 I can replicate what you describe under the following conditions:
1. the named range contains entries that are wider than the data validation
2. The data validation cell is r...Validating against a DTD

First of all, when i try to add my DTD file in XmlSchemaCollection

I am using NITF DTD for this and there is no DocType element in it.
Any help will be appreciated.

I want to set data validation on a cell so that it will accept the following
(and only the following) text strings:
(1) "BR" (literally)
(2) "NT" (literally)
(3) "nA" where n is any positive integral numerical value including zero and
A may take any of the values "L", "P", "T", "V" or "Y"
(4) "An" where n is any positive integral numerical value including zero and
A may take either of the values "K" or "D".
Is this possible, please, and if so how? thanks
Return e...Validation dropdown list is not coming visible
I'm using XP and 2003.
I have a problem that I have once found resolution, but now it came again
and cannot remember what needs to be done. Here is the problem: There is a
column where Validation is specified in right manner with error message in
case of error. When selecting the cell - dropdown list is not coming visible.
In case I write something wrong it gives error message.
If I recall correctly - it was something to do with some kind of list. How
can I change this to work properly? I tried to paste new column from another

I have set up a data form and have data validation rules on the various input
cells. I see that there is an option called "Ignore blanks" in the data
validation settings, which is supposed to restrict someone from entering past
an input cell without entering valid data, if the "Ignore blanks" box is
unchecked. I have tried to do this, but it does not seem to work. Please
could someone tell me what I am doing wrong?

Attempting to install a program from Nero.
Software keeps failing at startup, despite numerous re-installs.
During installs, it keeps attempting to update the 'reboot validator' which
it does not seem to be able to do.
What is the reboot validator, and how do I update it.
Couldn't find anything useful on MS site and Nero Tech support just says its
an MS problem.
Never heard of it but Nero Support should know about it: Reboot Validator
appears to be a Nero component; cf.
I have a sheet that is essentially just columns of data (except for the
column headings in the first row), and two of the columns are what I would
call 'mutually exclusive': i.e. if a value is entered in a row in either
column, the user must be prevented from entering any value in the same row
of the other column. The two columns already have some basic validation
applied (ranges of permissable numerical values), and this validation would
need to be applied for any values that are entered.
I am sure this can be done, but cannot see how!
Hope someone can help.

I've put up an HTML validator on my MVP Tips site. However, it may take a few hours for
the files to migrate to the backup server, so it may not be immediately available if the
page is served up by the backup server. This is a wrapper for the "tidy" library from
http://sourceforge.net/projects/tidy/ that is designed to scale up to the problems of
validating hundreds (in my case, well over a thousand) HTML pages in a single operation.
It comes will full source.
