Automatically updating text
Is it possible to set the properties of a text box so that if the text
is changed on the main page the same text is seen on all other pages of
the file where the text box is placed?
e.g. On the front page there is a textbox for the version of the
drawing, when this is changed a similar text box on other pages is

In an earlier post I asked about how to create a different
Global Address List. It was suggested that I create a new
GAL based on a common custom attribute, then create a
group and set a deny on the default GAL. This has all
worked fine. However, in that earlier post, the responder
suggested we also set up Full-Text indexing if we were
going to create our own GAL.
Question #1: Why would I need Full-text indexing in this
Question #2: What is full text indexing?
Question #3: How do I turn it on?
Answer 1: Why?

When I have a large group of text in a cell sometimes the
text towards the end will not wrap. This occures even if I
increase the row height.
Wrap text is checked in Format Cells.
How do i correct this?
I bet that this cell has a lot of characters in it. Sometimes if you add a few
alt-enters (line breaks within the cell), xl will act nicer.

I think this is a simple operation but I can not find the way to do it.
I have a excel user form with 3 text boxes, tb1, tb2 and tb3. I want to use
tb3 to show the results of the enteries made in tb1 & 2. For example
tb1 = Maximum
tb2 = Minimum
tb3 = Maximum - Minimum
After the entry is made in tb2 then tb3 will automatically show the
calculated result as the user will not be allowed to move onto that textbox.
At this point the record wil is part of a larger form and not updated to the

When I print out my monthly calendar, I cannot read all of the entry
because the font size is too large. So, I was trying to figure out if
you can change the size of the font that is used when printing out a
copy of the Monthly Calendar. I have changed all the settings for
font sizes under General Preferances and it has had no effect.
Does anyone know if this can be done and if so, How?
Thank you in advance.
I don't think the fonts are user controllable, but I do think this would be
a great feature to request.

Earlier this year my company upgraded all of us to Office 2007. I read about
some of the changes and was somewhat excited! Like the ability to have
spreadsheets of more than 65K rows and 256 columns. In my job duties I often
look at data in Access that is hundreds of thousands of lines long. More than
256 columns seldom comes into play , it's really the rows that initially made
me happy. Now I could export these large tables to excel spreadsheets and
manipulate the data in excel.
Well now the ability of Excel to handle more than 65K rows seems more like a
curse than anything else!! Recent...Office 2004 Pro Registration
I just got an iMac G5 and a friend of mine installed Office 2004 Pro.
Unfortunately, he made a mistake by using his name and employer. I

registration with that product number, which may or may not have
complicated the problem.
I need to change the name and employer. How do I do that? I hope I
don't have to reinstall everything.

I copied a paragraph from Word and used Paste Special to paste it to an Excel
document. I selected TEXT from the options in the Paste Special dialog box.
Now I can see only part of the text, but when I hit F2 to edit it shows all
of text. I have expanded my row to allow for the size of the paragraph.
The only formatting I have done is to wrap text and merged cells to allow
for the size of the test. I have also expanded my row to allow for the size
of the text.
Any thoughts as to why I see all the text when I hit F2, but only part of
the text when viewing it.

I have noticed that when I send emails in plain text format they end

I mailed tests to yahoo, gmail, and msn accounts, and they all get
reformatted as above when sent via Outlook. The only version that is
not wrapping is the copy in my Outlook Sent folder.
I noticed that my Outlook inbox is full of plain text email that
others have sent me and they DO NOT wrap at a fixed line width (but
are still denoted as being in plain text format). Instead they 'free

Thanks for your help and advice.
Since your prefix can change from one row to another, I think you will need
to use a TEXT Worksheet Function instead of a custom cell format.
