Reminders slow to pop up in Outlook 2007.
I usually set reminders for early morning so they pop up in the morning the
first time I run Outlook 2007. I can load Outlook, send and receive e-mail on
multiple accounts and RSS feeds, and if I find that I have no e-mail, exit
the program in the next 5-10 seconds without even getting my reminders.
Has anyone else noticed this? Is there a way to set up Outlook to give
reminders a higher priority at startup?
...Changing background color in multiple files?
I want to change the background color in hundreds of .doc files. To do so
one at a time would take hours. Is there any way of doing this for all
the files at once?
You could modify the method in the article "Find & ReplaceAll on a batch of
documents in the same folder" at:

...Split body text between two slides in PowerPoint 2007
I would like to split body text between two slides the way the instructions
say I should be able to do. That is, I would like to be working in the
Outline tab, position the Insert point, and press the Enter key.
This does not work for me. Instead of splitting the slide into two, I just
get a new blank slide after the slide I'm trying to split. Does anyone know
what I'm doing wrong, or are the instructions just wrong?
I think the instructions are incomplete.
Hitting Enter creates the title placeholder of the next slide for you. Hit

Is there any way in Excel to create a drop down list which contains colours?
For example to show RAG status (i.e. Red Amber Green).
At the moment I can only show text in the drop down list.
Would anyone know a way of working around this?
Thanks Roger, and Chip, for replying.
I was playing around with it and found that I could conditionally format the
cell depending on the text selected - so if I choose "RED" it goes red. It's
just about enough to work for what I intend to use it for, but I'll

Whenever my friend send me an attachment in Japanese File Name, I can open
them in Word, Excel or Powerpoint, but nothing is in there... They are
always blanc. But if I forward the e-mail to my MSN account with the
attachment, I can open them no problem... So this is not the problem on
Excel or Word. And I can even forward the same e-mail and open the
attachments. So maybe there is some sort of security feature from Outlook
preventing those files to open? Bu I can not crack down on the exact
solution... There are no problems what so ever for English tittled
attachments. ...Drag and drop with CRichEditCtrl

...Drop-down data not appearing in exported XML
I'm exporting data as XML from an Excel spreadsheet. Cells with plain
text in them work fine, but cells with a selection from a drop-down list do
not. The XML file shows everything is there, except data from cells with
drop-down selections. No error message generated, just no trace of the data.
Fixed the problem. Found out that the drop-downs were actually objects
placed on top of the cell, the options were not coded into the cells

I've used dynamic charts in 2003 for several years. I now have an internal

However, I only have two items in the list and I am wondering if there is a

Is there a way to select the alternate item with fewer clicks?

Just wondering if anyone can help
I am running a spreadsheet at work, which has 2 files linked to it.
On a computer running windows 2000 and Excel 2000 the links work fine.
However, on a computer running Win98SE and Excel 2000, the links only work
if the linked files are open when the main spreadsheet is opened. If the 2
linked files are not open, Excel crashes when it tries to link them.
Does anyone know what causes this, and whether it can be rectified?
If it helps, all 3 files are on a network drive.

Using Excel 2000, I see a menu choice to save the current workspace
but not one to open a workspace. The only way I have found to open a
workspace is to double click its entry in the Windows Explorer.
Also, the folder in wich the workspace is saved seems to be whatever
is the current folder, which I might not even remember the next time I
try to open it. Is there a way to set the saving and opening of
workspaces in a particular folder?
