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
containing...Change date format to European format
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.

We just upgraded to GP 9 and put the "client/server" client on a Windows XP
Pro box. So that is where I need to run Utilities to add a new company.
Utils works fine up until where you specify the location to put the Sql data
and log files. The browse buttons are greyed out, so I can't browse to the
sql server. I tried putting in UNC paths and mapped drive paths, but it
wouldn't take either. How can I create a new company? Am I stuck? Did I
need to put this "client/server" client on a Win2k3 box? or even on the very
same box as the sql server? Yikes!

I have a existing table with data already created. I need to add a field to
this table that is going to be required from now on. When I open the form to
update the record it allows me to add the information to the required field.
But when I tested the record to see if it would flag me on the required field
by closing it, it closes without flaging me to enter the information in the
required field. Can I update existing records on a form for a newly added
required field and have it flag me if the data is not enter on a form.

Every time I try to send a text message through Outlook Mobile Services, I
CANNOT use the address book. It has been "made" when I configured the

address book, as it is supposed to.
I must physically type in the full mobile phone number. It does not appear
in the mobile address book, even after I send a text message through Outlook.
Outlook also quits - kicks me right out and restarts - each time I try to
use the mobile address book.

Thank you so much for that, it'll save loadsa time. I adjusted the formula

I have two questions about OL2003:
1. Word is set as default editor. In replying message, sometimes I will get
extra lines on hitting Enter. It makes more space between paragraphs. Is
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
format to be rich text or HTML. If I uncheck Word as default editor, there
is an option in menu. What is it about with Word as editor?

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. Any ideas?

Hi everyone, does anyone know how to do this? I hve a column of figures
some positive and some negative. I want to format them so taht th
negative numbers are expressed in (brackets) and also so that th
column itself is decimal aligned, so even if I don't use decimal place

seem to make Excel do it. Help! Thanks, Vicky. :confused

...how do i make a word docx with both hyperlinks and form fields
How do I make a word document with both clickable hyperlinks and form fields
to be filled out? I couldn't seem to apply the required protections for form
fields without making the hyperlinks inaccessible. I tried putting the
separating the section of the doc with hyperlinks from that with form fields
but couldn't get the protection required for form fields to apply to one
section and one section only.

This is only possible in SmartList Builder SmartLists, not in the 'out of

About two weeks ago, I started Outlook and went in to view

an empty window.
We have discovered that the problem only occurs for email

formula the color changes do not occur. Is there a way to modify this to
work when the cells in the target range are formula driven? (Or, maybe I'm
doing something wrong, any ideas?)
