You can use the Text Block Tool to position the text wherever you like, and
Text Format to change the background colour.
You cannot just add a frame outline unless you use a diffferent connection
shape which has a sub-shape in it.

Debt Planner scheduled payments not in cash flow forecast
Can someone having scheduled bills from the debt reduction planner look in their cash flow forecast for the account from which those are paid, to see if the debt payments appear in the list of transactions? I have 2 accounts for which the DRP is managing payments. Both are paid from checking. That checking account includes payments to my primary credit card, to which almost all categories are attributed in the budget. The cash flow forecast includes budget items and scheduled bills, including the payment to the credit card. When I include the credit card, the average balance of the ca...

I don't want my text to wrap
I've got a text box filled with text, and then I want to put a circle over it (filled white, so that the circle blocks out the text behind it, but the text continues uninterrupted behind the circle). For some reason I can't get this to work, even though I've turned off text wrapping on the text box, whenever I put the circle over the text box it still wraps around the contours of the circle. Your statement is a bit fuzzy. Do you want the text to be blocked out so you can't see it? -- Don Vancouver, USA "Craig" <Craig@discussions.microsoft.com> wrote...

Michael I would have them each change their own fonts in response to a broadcasted message. http://www.codeproject.com/docview/Broadcaster.asp I am assuming that this happens after all the objects have already been created (or else you would have been doing this in the initialization code of each class), so if is because of a user setting, I would save the setting, then broadc...

Forced text wrapping
I've got some text cells in Excel 2003 in which I don't want the text to wrap. I formatted the cells leaving the "Wrap text" box unchecked. But when I paste text into a cell and do some editing, it automatically wraps the text in the cell, and if I then bring up cell properties, the wrap box is filled with a green square. How do I get Excel to use the format I told it to use for these cells and leave the text in them unwrapped? I've searched through help files & FAQs and can't find a solution. I thought there might be some auto setting that might nee...

Some messages stuck in SMTP connector queue
We send/receive external mail via a smart host. We have a SMTP connector configured to send all outbound mail to the smart host IP. The Exchange 2003 server is behind Proxy. Mail comes in fine. Most messages from workstations (XP, Outlook 2003) go out of the connector queue very fast. Sometimes, messages from the same workstations stay in the queue so long that it generates the Delivery Status Notification (Delay) message. Any ideas about what will cause this and how to fix it?

Comparing text in Excel
Hi, I am comparing 2 workbooks in Excel. I have names in the 2 columns I am trying to compare. The problem is the names can be slightly different e.g. 1 Mysteria Lane could appear as 1 Mysteria Ln. in the other. Therefore I cannot use exact matching. I was going to use Vlookup and set the final setting to True to use an approximate match but wanted to ensure there was no better way. Please let me know if there is a better way of doing this or if anyone can explain how the matching work when you use True in Vlookup I would appreciate it, Thanks, P Hi Paul, Try a search for soundex on...

Insert a Text Filed in Word 2003
This may be answered elsewhere, but I couldn't find it. I think it is simple, but one never know. I want to have various pieces of text in my document to act like a field. i.e. I want "Aerial Survey" to appear in multiple places but have only one source. So that if I change the wording for "Aerial Survey", to "Aerial Topographic Survey", it will change everywhere in the document. I do not want to protect the document. I can't seem to figure out how to do this. Word 2003 please. Dave Dave, For a start - and possibly an end - see h...

converting general cells format to text
I'm having a hard time converting already existing general cells into text format. I'm trying to change it into text format so SAS will be able to recognize it. Without the "green indicator", SAS, for some reason, will treat it as a "general" cell even though I've saved it and changed the cells into text. Any suggestions? Sometimes when you type a number into a cell and then change the format to text, it does not "set in" imediately. Hit F2 and then enter on each cell and it should change it for you. Hope this helps.

Text Color Changes By Itself
I have been working on a workbook where I'm entering (by hand) a couple hundred rows of data in three columns. When I reach a line of data that I do not need to review further, I enter it, highlight the three cells in which I've entered data, and change the text color to gray. I'll then hit enter and begin typing the data for the next row. The problem is that sometimes after I've changed the text color on the previous row, some or all of the cells in the subsequent row will also get changed from black (auto) to gray. As I enter the data, the text is black, but ...

automatic text highlighting

There's no macro and no hidden cells that I can find that perform this text coloring task. Has anyone an ideas of how it's been done?

Extra text added by system when converting to PDF?
I've been using PDFMaker to convert my MS-Word styles to bookmarks for the past couple of years, but now that my office has upgraded us to Acrobat 8, I'm running into a problem. Each time a bookmark is created from a Word doc, there is a very small bit of text added to the front of it. The system seems to be numbering the bookmarks sequentially, starting with "0B" for the first bookmark, and continuing for the rest. They're very small characters, and unless you zoom in very closely, they look like periods at the front of each line. Example: .Bookma...
