is it possible to convert a text string to a formula?
I have built a series of cells using CONCATENATE to produce a text
string for a vlookup formula - is there a way to now use this text as a
working VLOOKUP formula?

I had a Fax Icon on my toolbar and also on the file menu. All of a sudden it
is gone and I want it back. Where did it go?
Was it a dedicated toolbar? Or was it just icons on a builtin toolbar?
If it was a dedicated toolbar, you may get lucky and find it under:
(just not selected)
But if it was on a builtin toolbar (along with the file menu), then maybe you
reset your toolbar--also under:
selecting a toolbar and hitting the reset button.
If that's what happened, I think I might try to find the Fax addin/workbook that

I need to export outlook 2000 to a database- attachments

and retreive messages and attachments in a database form?
You can export individual folders to access or excel to have them available
for searching. I have never tried to export my entire .pst file to access
or excel however.

rather than having to add individual wrap points to the edge of a frame,
which is never as accurate anyway, can they be set to 'snap' to a frame (eg
the ellipse) so that they are perfectly inline, (and which would of course be
a lot quicker)?
Edit points will not snap. There are options for edit points, select a point,
right click. If you hold down control, the cursor will turn into an x, you can
delete a point with a click.
Truly a good draw program would be preferable.

&q...140 MB file went to 5.08 MB after editting 1 table
Hello All -
I need some ACCESS insight...please...
Several years ago, I built an access db to track my business
scheduling and accounts payable/receivable.
So this database is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO ME.
The file has grown to 140 MB.
Today I made a copy of the file and then edited my calendar table.
I removed all columns which had 2006 data (72 totals columns) - the
table had about 144 columns originally.
I then added 72 columns with 2008 headers. These columns are now
blank since I have not added any 2008 data yet. Afterwards, I looked
around and everything looks good - my 2007 data is the...a few basic question about resource files
I have an application that uses resource files to contain the string values
for each language.
I have created the required resource files in my project, but I don't speak
the languages I wish to have resources for.
What I would like to do, is somehow allow the end user to edit the resource
file themselves so they can set the string values as needed.
Is there a way to edit the resource files that ship with my application and
get installed ?
Is there a way to have external resource files (not embedded into my
application) that can be updated/replaced with o...Exporting contacts in a csv file

If I want B10 to B17 all follow the change of the same number(copy cell),
let's say I put it in A1,
and C10 follows the change of A2(copy cell), and C11 follows the change of
A3(copy cell), and C12 follows the change of A4(copy cell),
then I have 4 variables in my calculations: A1, A2, A3, A4.
I want to loop each of the variables in a different set,
then I hope the whole worksheet will be able to refresh following the change
of A1, A2, A3, A4,
and then I want to find the very set of A1, A2, A3, A4 that gives the

Is there a way to set the default text height for a new comment?
(I've looked through help but can't find it if it's in there.)
I assume you mean the font size? There is no text height available in Excel.
A comment has a shape property and that is what you can use to change the font size.
They didn't make it easy ...

I build custom masters by mixing two general shapes, say square and
circle together, and have text on both the shapes.
But after I drop an instance of the master into a page, I cannot
modify the text of the instance. To do so, I need to modify the text
on the master, which is non-sense for me.
How to change the text of a shape without modifying its master?
How are you doing this? By code or by the UI?
Are you grouping the shapes? If you drag two shapes to the stencil, it will
group the shapes. So instead of a square and a circle you have three shapes.

Are you familiar with the process of using a ruler or (I'm talking about
actual paper here, not a computer screen) if preferable using those rulers
with a colored transparent strip in them to mark the page you're reading or
proofing? As you move further in the document you mark the line your reading
with the ruler. Kinda like keeping a finger pressed below the last word
you've read. It makes it easy to proof against another copy when you must
move back and forth between pages without getting lost.
