External data link change
I've a sheet linked to an external data on the net, and I would like
that a cell in this sheet to indicate the last date and time it was updated,
the simplest way the better but I can do some programming too.
Thanks for your attention,
No need of help any more, I solved the question.
...Why does the change change to a number?
I've noticed something wierd and always wondered WHY it happens. When you
type a date into a cell, and then change the Formatting of it to a 'general'
cell, it turns into a number. How does it come up with that number? What is
i.e. type today's date of "12/7/2007" - change it to a 'General' format, and
it then says "39423".
I'm a trainer of Excel and this question always comes up. I'm curious
myself too. Thanks!

Is there a way to change the way Excel displays selected cells? I'm
interested in viewing all the selected cells highlighted (with light blue for
instance), but by default excel highlights all the cells but not the first one
the same occurs when you define a range with no adyacents cells
Your definition of the display is not quite correct.
Excel highlights the current cell, Excel also highlights a selecte
The currently selected cell is generally the first of a range, bu

I noticed the 2007 DST Calendar Update "Exchange tool" is available now:

Open the icon resource for editing by double clicking. Then notice the
control just above the editing grid that lets you switch between editing
the large icon and editing the small one.

My code opens some dialog boxes, with buttons and all the rest, and I draw
some data of my own on the dialog. I want to print the dialog exactly as it
appears on the screen. But because the dialog is not derived from CView or
other class that knows how to print, there seems to be no provision for this
I have succeeded only by recreating the entire thing with a separate routine
that is not itself a dialog. There must be an easier way. Does anyone know
I can make a bitmap copy of the screen and paste it into a graphics program,
but that is a kludge.

...Adding Lines And Boxes, etc. To A Chart ?
Will blame it on my age.
Using Excel 2007 (or, at least trying to) and XP.
When I have a chart page opened up, how do I get it to show the bar on the
bottom (that the real old versions had) that allows one to click on one of
its icons shown to "draw" lines, arrowed lines, boxes, add text with a box,
etc on the chart itself ?
With the chart selected you can use the Insert tab > Illustrations > Shapes.
To add shapes to the chart. Textbox is in the Text group of the Insert tab.

I am using a dialog as the main application window for my MFC app. At
one point, clicking a button that is located on a child window of the main
dialog is supposed to bring up a modal dialog that acts like a message box.
I create the dialog and call DoModal and it seems to be appearing behind the
main window. These are the symptoms: the application appears to be locked
up. Attempting to interact with the main window has the same effect as it
would if there were a modal dialog over it. Pressing the Alt button, for
whatever odd reason, brings the modal dialog to the front. I...Field Type Change
I am trying to change a free text field to a drop down menu in my

that are just typed in differently.
I'm assuming that I'll need to recode the different versions of an
entry to make them uniform but after that, I'm unsure how to proceed
so I won't lose any data. Is this possible or will I need to delete
the field, recreate it as a drop down and then re-enter the data?
