My text seems stuck in the text box! I can't make changes!HELP!

I am trying to alter text just typed into a text box using Publisher 2003.

For some reason, the system will not allow me to go back to edit.

Any ideas?

Is it just this one text box in this publication? Are you working with a 
template? Select the text box, copy, paste, can you edit the pasted text box?

What happens when you try to edit the text? Have you ever had this happen in 
Publisher before?

TEXT = text
I have some data in an Excel table which uses case sensitive codes. Does anyone know of a way to perform case sensitive VLookups. Example. A1 contains "TEXT", A2 contains "One". B1 contains "text", B2 contains "Two" If I enter "text" in cell A4 and the following VLookup in B4: =VLOOKUP(A4;A1:B2;2;FALSE) I get the answer "One", but I would like to see "Two". I have found a work around by converting a number of characters to their ASCII codes, but this is very messy. I know that the FIND function is case sensitive whe...

Selecting text in a document
Hi, I have a macro which finds a certain piece of text in the document and then moves down a line and then selects all the text between that and the end of the document and the selected text is later sent out in an email.

Resizing cells to fit text returned by VLOOKUP
I have some VLOOKUPs which sometimes return 50 or 60 characters (they're in merged cells). I want the text to wrap, and the cell to enlarge to fit the text - Just like it does whan you type it in, but somehow, because it is being returned from a formula it just displays the bottom line of the wrapped text, and doesn't resize the row. Anyone know how I cam make it fit? I'm happy to use a VBA solution if there's no built in way to make it happen automatically. Thanks M Would you mind to limit your request to ONE newsgroup?

Changing apperance back to gray?

Text Boxes on Charts not showing up
Has anyone experienced this? I've got a chart in a spreadsheet and I add text boxes to the graph section. They appear on the page yet when I click off the page, the text box disappears. If I go to print preview, the text boxes are there so why can't I see them on the screen? I've tried the bring forward command but that didn't work. This is also sporadic as some of my text boxes stay in place why others seem to disappear. Sue - If the chart is selected when you draw the text box, the text box becomes part of the chart. If not, the text box just floats along in the dr...

avoid losing text when text submission timed out?
Often I have to log in to some web site to enter a few paragraphs of text (e.g. web email submission, user forum, product reviews, etc). Sometimes it takes me a while to compose the text, and by the time I click submit, I get a response saying the session has timed out, and the text that took me a long time to compose is gone. Is there a way to retrieve this text? Clicking the back button doesn't work. Perhaps it is in a cache somewhere?

CRM 4.0 Workflow problems when changing long running workflows.
I've created some long running timeout-workflows which waits for a specific amount of time after an update is done to my users entity, and then send's an email to notify the user. If I unpublish the workflow, makes changes, and publishes it again then the old instances of the workflow continues running the old workflow, and new one's are using the new workflow. That is ok, I guess. My problem is that sometimes the old version of the workflow crashes and sometimes it is running fine. I've found no reason why it crashes and the error message only tells me to contact Micro...
