Hi Vato Loco!
Easiest way will be to use Data > Text to Columns using the space as
the delimiter. Then discard the bits you don't want.

In Outlook we have the advanced options menu, where a prefix can be added to

Does a similar option exist in Outlook Web Access ? If not - How can I

I have a text file of data that i get on a daily basis and have to perform
the 'text to column' function on each time. Is there a way that i can just
place the new text data in column A and have it automatically updated
starting in, say, column C. Alternatively, if that isnt possible is there a
function i can write to extract the data from the text file myself. Example:
Text in A1
abc 123 def 456 ghi
How can i extract abc, 123, def, 456 and ghi into cells c1 through g1?

Not all of the text in a cell appears when looking at the cell unless I
double click the cell or look at the formula bar. Autofit the row height is
on and shows a lot of white space. No special styles are applied. Wrap text
is on. Cell number is formatted as normal but have tried it as text also.
It's an Excel limitation:

You're right! As you probably know, Merge Cells doesn't

You might do Data > Text to columns on the list and seggregate the elements
of the "names" into separate columns. Then it would be a simple matter to
group them by .com, .net, etc.........with multi-key sorts.

I'm trying to enter a large block of text into a cell. I have the cell
formatted to wrap text, but after I've typed in a certain amount of text it
stopps wrapping and all the text entered after that point continues on the
same line out of the visible cell. Dragging the bottom of the cell down does
not make the text appear.
Line breaks in a cell can be enforced by <Alt>+<Enter>. Pls note the max

Is it possible to add links to text boxes?
I am using a 100% stacked column graph, but I need to show the total
number of items that each column consists of. I've been told to add
text boxes (which I really don't want to do because it will require
manual updating all the time and look really bad), but I can't find a
good way to display the count. If I add text boxes with links, it
wouldn't be so bad.
Any suggestions appreciated! Thanks.

You have to know what defines a paragraph. If it is a special character,
you can parse the file looking for said character.

To whom it may confuse. I have a query with a text field that needs to be
sorted in descending order. The field name is "ContainerNumber" and the data
will always have at least a letter in the begining. As you can see the data
sample "D100/07" comes after "D10/07" and that is not what I need. I need
"D11/07" to come after "D10/07" and so on. How can I fix this?
