I am a beginning Access user. When I order items, I am able to import
the order information (info about each specific ordered item) into an
Access database. I have figured out that I can add information from
subsequent orders to the same big table (and could use a query to ID
stuff from specific orders if necessary).
I want to mark items received or not received. If I do this in the
table, I mess up the column names and importing the order information
doesn't work (at least, it doesn't work with my limited knowledge). I
have tried to create a form where I add in a checkbox, but I ...How to lock closed opportunities
I would like to prevent users from re-opening closed opportunities after a
certain period from the Actual Closed Date. This is to prevent them from
changing some of the information.
The best would be to disable the "Reopen Opportunity" option in the Actions
menu for the closed opportunity.
workflow manager does not seem to cater for this scenario. I also looked at
the security privileges but it does not have controls to menu level.
Can anyone advise me how I can solve this?
Put the...Sorting Cube dimension names in a Pivot Table
How do I get the dimension names in the "pivot table field list" sorted by
the translated names?
The pivot table field list contains:
- one measure-node
- one dimension node for each cube-dimension.
The cube-dimension-nodes are represented by their translated names.
It looks like, this names are not sorted by this translated names,
but by the order of the data source.
The related radio-buttons in the pivot-table-options are greyed ("A to Z"
and "sort by data source").
I would need the "A" to "Z" order.

We have some very complex pivot tables in Excel that unfortunately are not
very stable or flexible when you make changes. The data list is used to
generate multiple pivot tables in the same workbook but the data and the
number of records can change frequently. One time we might have 18000
records and the next time we might have 2500 records. So far it seems that
everytime we have to change the data we have to reset the data source range
for each pivot table. I believe each pivot table was copied via Edit, Move
or Copy, rather than being generated as anew pivot table or based on anot...Access 2007 Pivot Table Chart

I have had this happen to me in Excel over the years. I am sure it has
to do with a memory issue but I am curious if it has happened to anyone
else. The helpless desk where I work is clueless, I know 10X more
about excel than anyone in the IT dept.
Sometimes, for no apparent reason, my cursor will anchor onto a cell.
I can still move the cursor but it stays in select mode, i.e. if I drag
the mouse it is as if I was holding down the left click button,
selecting cells as I move the mouse. No matter what I do I can't get
the excel to deselect the cell and I have to control/alt/del to kil...Purging old data from pivot table
Is there any way to purge old data from a pivot table? I modified th

different items for a new view, since the old non-existant data appear
to be selectable as well as the current data. Saving, closing,
reopening did not help either

In excel 2003 I found it very handy to have the 'Lock Cell' icon customised
on my toolbar.
I can't find it in Excel 2007 which is very disappointing. In a large

just by selecting it rather than having to open Cell Format and then the

"Sascha" <noreply@microsoft....Renaming forms tables and reports
Is choosing "save as" and making a copy and removing the original the only
way to rename a report, table, or form? I started with the Issues template
but I want to change the names of the objects. I can right click and rename
the shortcuts in the navigator window, but the name doesn't change and the
references are still under the old name. I do not want my shortcut to be a
different name than the reference name because then there will be confusion
for database maintenance.

I'm using Excel 2007, and trying to apply conditional formatting to the data

You cannot change data types in that way.
