how can i use cond formating to colour an entire column?
I have used conditional formating to highlight a cell in my table, but I
would like the entire column to be highlighted.
e.g Table has
NAME TARGET ACTUAL PERCENT TO TARGET
MR O 450 300 66.6%
I can highlight Cell D2 (percent to target) using cond format, but can i
make the entire colum change colour?
>can i make the entire colum change colour?
Sure, based on what condition?
An entire column can span as many as 1,048,576 rows depending on which
version of Excel you're using. Are you *sure* you want to format the *entire

In the textbook, there is a sentence that "Default XML
namespaces(xmlns="...") helps a lot, but can also create problems, as a side
effect of the rules for automatic qualification. How to understand "automatic
qualification" here? Could you please give me an example? Secondly, unless
otherwise specified, a schema prescribes that loal elements and attributes
must be "unqualified". What does "unqualified" mean? Could you please giv eme
an example? Finnaly, could you please tell me what's purpose of using these
two things? Thanks a lot!

I am running XP-Pro SP3 and considering upgrading from IE7 to IE8.
I have read all the feature and benefit articles from MS, but have one
question that remains unanswered.
In IE8 there is mention of being able to restore previously viewed websites
or something to that effect. I think this is on a drop down menu somewhere.
1) Does In-private viewing prevent this?
2) Does manually deleting your complete browsing history clear this?
3) Is there a registry entry that can prevent this action?

I am trying to use Microsoft Query to get data from my SQL 2000 databases.
The problem is that I have a few columns with names that conflict with

within the Query application.
Oddly enough, even if I do not select the column the error still appears.

Can I use:
