Y axis box size incorrect in Excel 2003
I am having a problem; the y-axis box size does not display the entire text.
I cannot change the size of this box. This only happens for the y-axis, not
for other axis labels or the chart title.
I have tried adding spaces followed by a period to fool the box and this
works in Excel, but when I copy the chart to a Word document, the full text,
including the final period appears.
Details and suggestions can be found on Jon's page.

I have a CRichEditCtrl based class, and I want to catch the WM_COPY
I used the ON_MESSAGE(WM_COPY, OnCopy) macro in the MESSAGE_MAP, and
then defined a LRESULT OnCopy(WPARAM, LPARAM); function. However I am
not getting a breakpoint in that routine.
Do I need to be using Reflection? Any ideas on how I can catch that
message so I can do special processing?
Under what conditions are you not catching WM_COPY? Ctrl+C? It probably doesn't send a
WM_COPY message (Microsoft is not very good about doing things the right way, just doing
things the clever way)

I do not know how I did it but all my comments (about 200 of them) defaulted
to a size that makes them almost invisible with only the tails showing. The
only way I can resize them is by going into each one and change the shape. I
gave up after about 50 and I am now desperate for the information contained
in all comments boxes.
Is there a way of making all the boxes the same size in one go? How did I

You could resize them programmatically. There's sample code here:

One problem with the CDate function is that it will bomb out on things that
