Very annoying behaviour of Excel 2003
Each time I am opening Excel, it is installing some component. This takes
several minutes, and becomes very annoying.
I recently had to reinstall XP and Office from the distribution CDs. I have
the problem since then. It certainly has something to do with the install.
Does anyone on this forum ever experienced such a behaviour.
I am running Office 2003 on XP SP3.
have you tried doing a repair in the help menu?

Is the sheet protected? You cannot hide a protected sheet.

Go into the Tools Menu. Look for AutoCorrect. In the bottom half of the
AutoCorrect Tab, look at the list for Replace text as you type. Delete the

I'm struggling very hard in getting beyond this error when trying to use VB to generate a chart from data previously inserted into the sheet.
Unable to set the Values property of the Series class.
The code works absolutely fine in XL2007 but I am having to port it back to 2003 and the inference is that its empty values that cause it to hiccup - something I cannot avoid.
My code is:
1. Retrieve selected data from database and place it at the top of the sheet
2. Add The Chart
3. Iterate through the data (amount can be variable depending upon user inputs)

intent of each and what prep is required.

I am trying to create a spreadsheet for a high school class. I need to be
able to track when a student has entered data into specific cells of the
spreadsheet. Any ideas?
In the code behind the worksheet, enter (eg)
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Cells(1, 1).Value = Now()
This will enter in Cell A1 the date and time at which any entry is made in
If you need the location of the time-stamp to vary according to which cell
is changed then you can test the value of Target and vary the destination
