Uppercase text to Proper text
I'm new at this so please excuse me.
I have an excel spreadsheet in Office 97.
It's all in upper case letters and I need it in
upper/lower case letters.
Can anyone tell me how I can simply change a column (say
column "C") from uppercase text to Proper text?
Example: MR & MRS KEN HOAGLAND to Mr & Mrs Ken Hoagland
Must I do a formula in code module or is there a simple
way to do this? If not, how do I do it any other way?

how do you mirror text so that it looks like a reflection?
WordArt will do that but not regular text. I usually use Photoshop Elements
when I want that tho - it give me a higher level of creativity.

want without going thru a lot of trouble.

My problem is this...I have two text boxes. I want to wrap one text box
around the other text box but nothing seems to be working. What I want to do
with the one to the left is make it into an "L" shape so that the box on the
right simply fits in the empty space of the "L" to form basically a square.
I have tried turning on all those text wrapping features with both boxes and
cannot figure out for the life of me what is happening. I have a box drawn
around the box on the right...don't know if that has something to do with it.

I thought that was a "given" with any mouse that had a wheel.
Depress the wheel and see if you don't get a .four directional arrow icon.
Move the mouse in the direction you wish to scroll.

Every time I try to create a hyperlink of a cell (that contains a couple of
sentences worth of text), I seem to reach the maximum allowed characters for
the display text - and Excel cuts off the end of the paragraph. Hence, the
the hyperlink is created, but I loose half the content of the cell.
It looks like that text to display can be 255 characters.
And the same thing holds for =hyperlink(link_location,Friendly_name)
Friendly_name can be up to 255 characters--and if you point at another cell that
contains a longer string, you'll get an error back.

If the cell with the date is formatted as a date (and not text) you can use...
A1: 9/10/2003 (formatted as a date)
A2: _GIT (formatted as text)
A3: =TEXT(A1,"ddmmmyy")&A2 (formatted as text)
If the cell with the date is formatted as text you can use
A1: 10sep03 (Formatted as text)
A2: _GIT (Formatted as text)
=A1&A2 (formatted as text)
The reason I am clarifying it like this is I have never seen the date
formatted like that.

"...Text wrapping difficulity
I am attempting to wrap text around a graphic, an oval. On the "outside" of
the oval is a picture that ends on the ovals left hand side. I want the text
to follow the "inside" (or right hand side) of the oval. I have edited the
text boxes' wrap points, that did nothing. I have grouped the three objects
(picture, graphic & text box) and brought the graphic to the front. That
didn't work. The text always runs through (on top of) the graphic and the

That is just a placeholder until you put text into it. It does not show up
until your in the slide presentation mode. If you want a blank slide without
a place holder you need to select new slide and select the blank option.
