Drag and Drop does not work

Hi all.

This is funny:
When I try to drag and drop a message from "Inbox" to "Backup" I get an 
error message.
When I right click and select "move to folder"- it does work.

So just WHERE is this "Backup" thingie that you don't describe actually 
located?  Is it perhaps a shortcut in the Outlook Bar?  If so, what 
happens when you delete it and recreate it?  It is a pointer to a folder 
but that pointer can get corrupted (by changing to a different message 
store, for example, so what it points to no longer exists).

Drag and drop with CRichEditCtrl
I have an application that makes heavy use of the rich edit control. One of the things I needed to do was to customize text when it is pasted or dropped onto the rich edit control. This wasn't too hard to do: I have an object implementing IRichEditOleCallback attached to the rich edit, and in the QueryAcceptData() method I modify the data as needed before adding it to the control. My problem comes with drag and drop, specifically with the "move" drop operation. Following the MSDN documentation, my QueryAcceptData() method returns S_FALSE to indicate that it's processed the d...

Drop Down list with colours
Hi, 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. 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 experiment with your suggestion in case I need to develop thi...

Drop Downs and lookups from other sheets
I have a workbook where the front sheet is a display page and the three sheets behind are reserved for data tables.

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. Any suggestions? thanks kc 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 themselves.

OWA not working any more
Hi everyone, we have an Exchange 2000 box running with OWA published over 443 with a commercial certificate. We recently changed ISPs which means that we were allocated a new range of IP addresses, one of which is pointing to the OWA (as it did before - NATting is correct). Since we moved I can not access the OWA from the outside 9/10 times that I try. As i know that the OWA is not clever enough to remember which public address it was using I am assuming that it has something to do with DNS servers not having refreshed in the ether...

I created a drop down list using the data, validation menu. It works well. However, I only have two items in the list and I am wondering if there is a better way to alternate between them.

Is there a way to select the alternate item with fewer clicks? Don, You need only click the cell, click the dropdown button, then click the desired item. Three clicks.

how do I set up a header or a footer in the dropping down menu to.
I am trying to set up a footer that I can use throughout many workbooks, just not the sheets. Is there a way do this by setting it up as a predetermined footer or header in the drop down menu You can use a template for new workbooks and new sheets that includes the headers and footers you want. See Help for more information. But this will affect only new workbooks and worksheets, not existing ones. For them, you'll have to change each one manually.

Does SumIf work with a range?
