Workbook cells won't hold formatting in Office 2007
I have Office 2007 running in Vista Home Premium. My system got FUBARed and
had to be reloaded. Now my Excel workbooks won't keep the proper formatting
in cells. I have them formatted as general so that I can type in something
like 4 - 1. As soon as I do that it converts the formatting to Custom and
puts it in as a 1-Apr. If I try to reformat the cell as general I then get
39904. If I enter it as space 4 - 1 then it enters correctly.
How can I make the cell give me the correct information without putting a
space in front of it?

Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard)
I have a number of documents made on a PC that include images - scanned, from the internet, etc. They look fine when opened by Word for PC, but when the same file is opened by me using Office 08 for Mac, some (not all) of the pictures appear absolutely minute, in the top left of the image box. The image box is still there, so the text alignment is not affected, but the rest of the text box is blank.

I am going to purchase a new PC and order Office Professional 2007 with it.
I now use Office 2003 and have many data bases. It is my understanding that
I will have to locate my data bases in a "Trusted Location" to use them with
Access 2007. All my data bases are now located in "My Documents" along with
a lot of other files. My first question is will I have to move my data bases
individually or is there some way I can move or make them all "Trusted" at
one time? Not being familiar with "Trusted FIles", my second question is

Excel 2007's context menu includes Paste Special; Word's does not. I have
frequent need for Paste Special in Word and the many trips to the Ribbon get
tiresome. I'd like to know how to add commands to the context menu in
general, but a solution for Paste Special is the immediate need.

I have a small doubt could you clarify that???
That is I find duplicate name but I want to delete one name only, if I
filter DUPLICATE….. both names are showing…
1. Select the range of data including the header. You need to have headers
for these columns
2. From menu Data>Filter>Advanced Filter>Copy to another location
3. In 'copy to' specify the target cell and check 'Unique records only'
4. Click OK will give you the unique list

I'm trying to write a query that will return a median for various
values taken from a previous query. I've seen some suggestions in my
searching, but I haven't been able to get them working. They are also
all from before 2003 and refer to Access 97 and 2000.
Has any functionality been added to 2003 for this? Or is there a non-
code-based way to do it? I've seen it suggested to write a code to
open the query, sort it, find the total number of records, divide it
in half, then seek out the middle record using that value. I'm still

Any ideas how to fix it. I tried repairing the installation and total

I just converted from Outlook 2003 to Outlook 2007. In Outlook 2003 at the

the address card in Outlook 2007. Can someone help me figure out how to make

I created a postcard mailer in Pubisher 2003 using a template.
The printer said I have to change the format of a PDF so he can open it and
I can't seem to do it.
When I go to File and Send e-mail, the only option that shows up is sending
it as a publisher document.
That's because you need third party software to do that. Adobe's Acrobat is
the "real deal" but there are several low-cost or free alternatives.

i work on the same .xls files as the rest of my collegues, but i am the only

less no problems, ever time they open mine the charts are all messed up. The
textboxes loose their background, the printable box gets unchecked, and they
seem to get resized so not all of the text even fits in the box. Is there
something that i can do to avoid this and solve this problem? I will be
forced to change back if i cannot because it is much too counter-productive.

For best treatment by things like Tax Estimator, I'd set it up as an
Investment (IRA) account. You may never have any Investments in the
Investment half of the account. It may just have interest earnings in the
Investment Cash Account. This essentially wastes the Investment Account, but
that's probably not a big deal.
