I have two cells in a workbook that are dates. The cell Start_Date has a
valid date in it. The second cell Test_Date is either blank or has a valid
date in it. The IsDate test on both cells works fine, however, on a blank
cell the Month function extracts "12". Anyone know why? I had to put the
month function within a test for IsDate to make it work. Seems like Month
function on a blank cell should return something other than a 12.
If IsDate(Range("Start_Date")) Then 'Cell has 11/01/09 in it.

I'm using a VM with GP 10.0 SP3 installed. In order to have the same as our
production databases i copy the GP folder, entirely, which i think it was a
mistake now I'm getting a "This cannot be added to Visual Basic", whenever i
try to add a window, any window, to VB. Also it goes without saying that
there's a lot of load errors starting GP.
For the record the copy/paste thing worked, sort of, and before you start

Presumably you are referring to MS Excel spreadsheets and workbooks. The
easiest method would be to import the appropriate type library (.tlb)
provided with Excel, having the class wizard generate the classes, which you
then use to access the Excel Automation model (that is the same model that
Excel VBA uses). Some investigation may be needed to determine which tlb to
use, and to make sure you have a basic understand...VB in Excel
In Excel I go into Visual Basic Editor, then Visual Basic Help, but when I type 'Passwords' for example it will bring up a list of related items, but some of them you can't select. Does this mean the installation CD is corrupt and hasn't installed all the components? I have reinstalled and repaired the installtion but to no avail.
Any ideas anyone?

I need to create an xml file from a VB program using fields returned from an
sql query. I have a template that was provided for me and need to use
verbatim. Since this is just a text file, I gather that I can just write out
the file with all of the tags, etc., and name it .xml. Assuming that is
correct what I might want to do is create a template so that if this file
changes the names of the elements, all I have to do is change the template
and if more elements get added I can then add them. Is there a tool that can
do this for me? If I have to create one, any suggestions as to what I ...How Can I Edit the Color Palette in Outlook XP Pro ------NOT OE------- TKS

Excel 2003, sp2
I want to use a very light grey color in some of the cells in a worksheet.
RGB(234, 234, 234) should produce the color I want, but:

(Colorindex = 2).
Can Excel only handle the 56 predefined colors returned by the ColorIndex
But you could replace one of those 56 colors with the shade you want.

Yeah, I'm new to Excel; normally a database kind of guy (or would use
Crystal Reports and create formula fields that would display the date only
if it was within a certain range and assign a font & color to it).
