excel to get data from an access database
I need excel to get data from an access database similar to vlookup function
from an excel table.
In order to have only specific records copied to your Excel file, the query
needs to include selection criteria (and sort order if necessary). Otherwise,
all records get copied and you then need to create lookup formulas or use
filters to restrict the set of record.
If you are not familiar with Access queries, have someone who is create one
for you as a stored query object in the database file. You can then use the

Attachment, whether docs or pictures won't open. I can preview them inside

to open attachment and then print just from there. Please help. It's like
the Microsoft Picture manager is working strangely.
...Office 07 Excel chart title position
I want my chart title to be positioned above the chart /plot area, can't do it.
"above the chart" does not position the title above the chart, it leaves
exactly where "centered overlay title" put it.
Help please (& thank you)
An option would be to use worksheet cells to add your title rather than using
the chart itself. Using worksheet cells positioned directly over the top of
your chart would allow you to control the title location as well as expand
the area available for the plot.

I have been successful in creating and sending an email through Lotus

message is more presentable. Currently, I filter a spreadsheet based
on two named ranges and send an email to the SOX audit team member and
copy the SOX control owner. I copy the values from selected columns
on the visible rows and separate those values by tabs.
However, the presentation is bad as the data is variable in length and
therefore the alignment is not correct. I would like to learn how to

I have MS Excel 2003 installed on my computer. When I open a new workbook and

am unable to do anything. I can move the mouse anywhere on the sheet and it
highlights the cells that the pointer has gone over as if I am selecting a
range/group of cells such as you would if you were going to delete them or
clear contents. I try to right click and nothing happens. I move the pointer
over the tool bar, it does nothing. I hit <ESC> and still nothing. The only

My Access 2002's export interface (ISAM) seems to be associated with earlier

Among the less technical ideas, you might first confirm that all current
updates and Export filters have been installed. AFAIK, Access '02 should be
able to export more than 16,000 records if the appropriate filters are
available... unless you mean that an older Excel format must be used.
You might also consider exporting as a text file & then importing that to

To be specific, I will describe the situation for an address/telephone

needs eight characters if you include the hyphen. A street address could
be fairly long, 20 characters or more. A state code needs only two.
If I want another sheet with the same column widths as one I like, how
can you transfer the column width formatting? Paste Special format does
not seem to transfer column widths.

Good Day All,
I am using Exchange server 200 and Outlook 2003 mail client. I have started
to experience with a single machine where all of a sudden reading emails
with attachments of any size, even 6k, slows greatly.
Just selecting the email item in the list takes at least 30 seconds before
the lower pane shows the body of the selected item. No other client has the
same problem even while this machine does. The problem seems to disappear at
some point and then returns.
The machine was connected to a 10Mbps switch so I changed to a 100Mbps
switch and Event logs reveal nothing.
