Change bkgnd colour for some words in CRichEditCtrl?
I'd like to be able to change the background colour for some of the text
in a CRichEditCtrl. I'm comparing two files side-by-side in these controls
and need to be able to highlight some text to illustrate the results.
I could just change the text colour and make the font bold and/or
larger, but highlighting similar to when text is selected would stand out
better, especially if I could also change the text colour to suit.
Is this possible? (I've seen it in some programs, but don't know if a
CRichEditCtrl was used.)
Any help appreciated,
...unable to read file with "xlw" extension
I have an old but very important file with a "xlw" extension which I
cannot open with Excel. When I tried to open it, some error message
came up indicating the file cannot be accessed, as though the file is
not there. Any idea?
Sounds like a workspace file, which contains information about
workbooks, but not the workbooks themselves. So the workbook files may
not be able to be accessed... You'll need to find the workbook files.

C...=9/10 does not calculate --- did I change an option?
I am accustomed to calculating in a cell by typing "=" and then a
formula, such as 9/10 or 2+8, and having the result appear in the
cell. Now, the calculation does not happen, and it just puts the text
"=9/10" in the cell. I must have changed an option, but am not able to
find one that gets the old behavior back.
Any help on how I might restore calculation would be greatly
appreciated, many thanks in advance.

Rodrigo Corral Gonz�lez...Convert from Excel and change field to Autonumber
I have an Excel file which I have opened in Access to create an access table
which is fine. I am now quickly going through the fields to tweak them to
what they should be but the Excel file was created from a Lotus Approach
database that had a field which was autonumber. Obviously when I try to
change the field in the Access database it tells me that it can not do this
as there is data in the table.
What is the proper procedure to do this and either make the field an
autonumber field during conversion or after?

Thanks in advance.
Why do you want to do this? Using a custom form as your message form will
make it difficult to send attachments to non-Outlook recipients.

My Excel work sheet displays a -1 when it should read zero. When right click
and go to format cells and number I see that a -1 is in the sample section.
However, I can not change it to zero.
Why do you think it should read zero?
What value is in the cell? A computed value that you feel should be zero?
If you type in a zero you should see 0
If you type in -1 you will see -1

I have a file that was coverted from 1997 version of excel to the 2003
version of excel. The file has no volitile functions (eg. "now" formula,
"offset" etc), however I am prompted to save changes on closing the file,
even when no changes were made. I am on automatic calculation, but this
ususally has no effect on the save prompt.
How do I stop Excel from prompting to save when no changes were made?
- really no volatile function??
- maybe an event procedure which changes something in the background
- does this happen only after saved in Excel...Notification Area System Icons Have Disappeared

Search the registry for your manager's name. It was probably the name
