Using Relative path for XML data file?
Is there a way to specify a relative path to an XML data file imported into
Excel 2003? I am writing a web app that generates report data as XML for the
user to download to their local machine. This data is to be consumed by an
Excel reporting spreadsheet, which contains display-formatted tables and
charts that are mapped to various data fields in an XML Map, which is in turn
linked to the xml data file they will download.
The idea is the user only needs to download the data for updates, not the
whole spreadsheet. However, since I cannot predict the path where the user
will store their...Changing Cells and entering data in them

You can use the INT function. This 'rounds down' any number to th
nearest integer, e.g. if A1=2.567, a formula in B2 of =INT(A1) return

It's legal for a document to have multiple views into it's data, but when
CMultiDocTemplate is created, it is only passed one runtime view class. How
are multiple views handled in the document template context? Should all
views of your document be derived from the class passed to
CMultiDocTemplate? This is confusing me because MDI AppWizard did the work
of setting up a document view class for me, but now I'm just using a child
window with an imbedded static splitter window to show two different views
of my document, and these views have nothing to do with CMyProjectView that...using the journal on outlook

Are you linking to the item or putting a copy into the journal item? Also,
has the item been archived or not?

The second option I have is to use some excel book for data analysis and

...how do I add error bars to a 3D chart in excel?
The help states you can only add error bars to data series in 2D area. Is
there a way to add them to a 3D chart?
I would not have thought so. Obviously as it is not a built-in option
the only way would be a work around perhaps using dummy series.
Unfortunately you can create 3d combination charts.
Stick with the 2d view.
