...Max Limit for Values in List Boxes and Combo Boxes in Outlook forms
Folks, a user is setting up a form. She wants to have several combo
boxes and list boxes with between 75 and 300 (yes, 300 -- that's not a
typo!) possible values in the combo box or list box. Before she starts
work on this, she would like to know if there is a limit on the number
of possible values for a combo box or a multi-select list box.
Is there a limit? Is it defined by the number of characters in the
values box, or the number of actual values? What is the limit? Any help
here would be appreciated. Thanks.
...Tab control question about updates
Searched but couldn't see this discussed.
I have a form with 5 tabs.
Data can be loaded three ways, manually entered, imported from a text file,
and imported from a Word template.
On one of the tabs (the second) when the user enters information such as a
social sec. number (SSN) that matches a file already in the system, a flag
goes off and alerts the user. Works fine.
On the import functions, the data is loaded and appears correctly, but when
the user moves to the second tab where the SSN number appears, it does not
set off the flag when the page opens.

Hello, I have a workbook with separate sheets for each month. The sheets

I've been trying pivot tables without luck. Hoping someone can help.

Never mind, I consolidated all the worksheet data into one and the pivot

http://www.micr...how do I increase drop list font and box size I created
Font is small and you have to scroll through list due to box size
If the dropdown was created using Data Validation.............Font size is set
Dropdown box height cannot be changed.
For workarounds like using a ComboBox and using Zoom see Debra Dalgleish's site
on DV Lists.

I have Outlook 2000 SP-3 running under Windows ME. When using the Find
feature to locate all e-mails with a given word in the message, no items are

Hey everyone, hopefully someone's run across a problem similar to this and

combo-box simply refuses to allow me to enter that many fields of data). :(

maximum on combo-box data size) but I couldn't find anything that wou...pre-select new record in combo box

Whenever I create a new message; reply to one; or forward
one in Outlook 2003 on a machine I inherited from someone
else at work, the blinking text cursor is automatically

in Outlook or any other email app and its quite annoying.

Wow! I tried this out, and it seems to work beautifully. It's odd, though,
that I haven't seen this technique mentioned in any of the several Excel
references that I've looked at.
Basically, I have a workbook with several worksheets...one worksheet
contains a large list with all the records.
I wanted to set up the other worksheets to have certain functions...I wanted
them to use only certain columns from the main list, and to contain only
certain records from the main list that met specified conditions.
This is the best solution I have found so far - i.e., creating database

What gateway are you using? What you would need to do is to snd a
internet message to a gateway provider which would then send the messae
out on the wireless land.
Most likely you are using a webpage interface from your PC to interface
with the gateway. So opening up an internet explorer and goiong to an
URL is probably the method to use.
