length of segments
Is there a way to simply display the length of a line segment that has been
changed from a straight line to an arc?
Is there a way to simply determine the total lenght of two connected line
segments or at least list their length for me to add together?
The Shape.LengthIU property can give you this information programmatically.
There is no way to get this directly from the Shapesheet.

For those of you familiar with FRx, you know that you can have a column that
references the current month and current fiscal year, and a separate column
of data representing the current month but for the prior fiscal year.
Is it possible to build this sort of logic in Crystal? I have written a
complex inventory sales report that accurately shows sales data for any
particular fiscal month and fiscal year. I wrote this based on parameter
fields for month and year chosen by the end user when refreshing the report.
But, I also need a column that shows that same data (same items) i...Length of Variable names

Anyone know some code I could use to easily enter times into cells.
For example, I currently type '20:15' (without the quote's of course) but

See Chip Pearson's site for quick entry of dates and times.
Note: event code is required which Chip provides.
Elsewise you would need a helper column to change the numbers to times.
If you don't need to use the times for calculations you can use this custom

I have a user who has many events on her Entourage calendar (with an Exchange 2007 backend), and for some reason, a handful of her events are off by one hour (i.e. one hour later than it really is).

I'm guessing that your default font size in the Normal Template is 10. Do
you want to change the default font size for all Excel docs or just this one?
