repetitive names.

Hello.
 I am trying to write the script of a movie in a word document.
 How could I avoid retyping the name of the person that is talking in the 
movie? I want to make sure though, that in every phrase said the name of the 
person speaking appears.
Is there any kind of short code that I could give to every personage so I do 
not have to write the personage name every time?

There is an autoreplace feature in Word, most often used to correct common
spelling errors, but it can also replace a person's initials with their full
name, etc.

Named Cell Ranges
If a range of cells (A1:B5) in worksheet #2 is given a name, and a cell A1 in worksheet #1 equals cell A3 in worksheet #2, does that mean that the single cell in worksheet #1 is automatically linked (or tied to) the named range in worksheet #2? Not automatically no, the name is just a 'handle' to the rage that it refers to. -- HTH RP "Confused" <Confused@discussions.microsoft.com> wrote in message news:B08A5ADC-76DD-434D-BB3D-CF6307AC7700@microsoft.com... > If a range of cells (A1:B5) in worksheet #2 is given a name, and a cell A1 > in worksheet #1 equa...

File Name Length
Does anyone know if filenames can be longer than 31 characters in Office 2004? Thanks.

FIrst, you *can* have filenames longer than 31 characters in Office v.X already - you just can't generate them. While v.X apps display a hash at the end of a long filename, it keeps the filename intact when you save. MS hasn't announced anything regarding long file names in 2004 ye...

Access will display a #Name error whenever it cannot find a field with a field name entered into an expression.

Publishing charts
We are using Excel to manipulate some real time data then publish the updated results every 15 minutes to the Internet.

The images end up with names like "xyz_89654_image001.gif".

Naming a Chart
Excel 2000 Power Programming with VBA states that naming an object requires selecting the object (such as a chart), typing the new name in the Name Box, and pressing Enter. This does work for a shape but not a chart. When I select a chart and attempt to enter anything in the Name Box, any entry is not enabled and therefore nothing happens. How can I assign a name to a chart??? Hold the Shift key (or the Ctrl key), and click on the chart to select it. Then, type a name in the Name Box, and press the Enter key.

Lost name when importing contacts from WM to WLM
When I import the contacts (from Windows Mail) into Windows Live Mail, the contact name is lost, only the e-mail address is imported. The name is lost and the emal address is shown in the name field in Windown Live Mail. How can this be corrected? In Windows Mail, export to a CSV file. Then open that file in in a word processor or spreadsheet. Verify that that the name field is there. Verify the first record for the field names and that they match the fields in the data records below. If that looks fine, when you import the data in Windows Live Mail, make sure that the ...

how to remove deleted fine names?
When a file is deleted it can often be easily recovered with UNDELETE software. I'm wanting to completely remove any trace of certain deleted files, including the file name from FAT's. I've googled and found the following; there are shredder or WIPE tools which will overwrite the space a deleted file resided in, but I've found none which can remove the deleted files name. In fact one comment stated, "in NT it's not possible to remove (delete) a deleted files name"! Thought that sounded strange, could do it in W98 with Nut's and Bolts software. ...

She needed to find a particular email that was sent to someone so she went to the sent items and viewed by "To" and typed in the person's name. There should have been 2 messages that came up as there were 2 that were sent to that person that day but only one shows up. If I view by date, then the other one shows up. Now this happens occassionanly, not just this time. Most of the time if she view's by "to" ...
