negative number format
I have a report uploaded to excel from a particular program used here at
work. In that program, negative numbers have the format of $###.00-, with
the minus sign at the end instead of the beginning.
When the data comes over to Excel the minus sign is still at the end of the
number. The text currently has a General Format with No Specific Number
Format. I have been manually moving the minus signs to the beginning in each
cell, then changing the Column to Currency Number Format which is very time
consuming. Is there a formula I can use in the Cell, Column and/or Worksheet

double click on the attachment), I get an "Attachment Security

don't always want to do. However, sometimes, I can open the file with
no problem. Why would I even have a problem with a .txt file? Surely

My computer is set to European date format but Excel is default to American
date format. Can someone advise how to change this default setting.
Have you restarted Excel since setting the system date formatting? Excel
takes its cue from the OS on launch. Also, double-check the Regional setting
in the System Prefs.
If those aren't the cause you'll need to be specific about your version &
update levels of both Office & OS X plus any other details you can supply.

You state "and all was fine. until today when i notice no mail is going
Then you state "Now i can send mail enternally with no problem"
And you say you can receive email from outside, so I am confused as to what
the problem is.
I would like to be able to "freeze" the formatting for the number of decimal places in cells - some will need to be integers, some will need three decimal places, etc. The problem comes when I paste in information; the number of decimal places I have formatted the cell for is overridden by the pasted-in data.

I have two questions about OL2003:

there any way to insert one line with one Enter?
2. I'd like to have special effect in replying text message sometimes, such
as change color of font, but it cannot be done unless changing the message

is an option in menu. What is it about with Word as editor?

I just upgraded to Office 2008 and am already encountering weirdness.
I can't change one set of paragraphs (of the same style) to single

But if I create a new "single" style based on normal, then I can't seem
to apply "normal" at all.
Something feels very non-intuitive here. Has something major changed
since 2004 I should know about?
Also, I can't believe how buggy the upgrade was -- Word was crashing at

Is it possible to format a smartlist field? Let's say from 2 decimals to 4
This is only possible in SmartList Builder SmartLists, not in the 'out of

Name of a field, then click the blue arrow in the header to go to Set Field
Options. For number fields there will be a tab called Decimal Places.

windows mail won't send either MS Excel 97-2003 or 2007 formats if I try to
send either by itself. I have to attach same file I want to send in both
formats. Then, only the 97-2003 format actually gets through. Either way, I'm
getting notice that Mail can't send one or more attachments. Any suggestions
to help eliminate the glitch would be most appreciated.
Windows Mail doesn't care what the attachment is. But make sure the
file you are trying to attach is not open anywhere else (i.e. in Excel).

I have received money 2003 with my laptop last year and used it ever since.
Resently I downloaded the 2004 trial version and used it for the monthly
period. As I just use it for my home finances I didn't see a need to buy the
2004 version just yet and so I uninstalled it and reinstalled the 2003
The problem is that I can't open my money file anymore or restore the
backup. I have tried installing the 2005 trial, but that doesn't work either.
What can I do?
