If you have Word installed and it's the same version as Outlook (both 2003,
for example), you can do a mail merge between the two. This would allow you
to set up the text the way you want it to, and you can save the document for
future use. Look at the following page for further information:

Why does the way a spread sheet is sorted change the look of a scatter plot
graph??? the graph is just a plot of two points, (X, Y) and these two points
are definded by two collumns for a given row. The two collumns don't change,
and the row all stays together, so why does it change where points are
plotted out on the graph when you re-sort it?
Usually, for an XY (Scatter) chart, with values of X in a column and
corresponding values of Y in an adjacent column, for three or more points,
Excel assumes (correctly) "Series in Columns."

Hi, I have this little issue. I want to change the put items on promotion
using the price wizard using HQ. Unfortunately if I have stores who has

We use the Service Call modules for repairs in our Stores and have a
situation that I'm trying to find a workaround. We have situations where our
technicians will pick-up items without prior notification to our dispatchers.
All of a sudden we get an invoice and currently we have to track down the
charge and then we are forcing a PO into the system from the Service Call in
order to properly receive and enter the invoice.
Does anyone have other ways to do this and track the information/cost on the
Service Call without needing to create a PO after the fact.

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.

If column A contains expiry dates then select column A,

Adjust number of months as you like!
Is there any way to format a cell differently depending on the number of
decimal places typed in? What I need is a minimum of 2dp but 3 if the typed

Try formatting the cell with a custom number format such as 0.00##
