Print an Excel document directly without starting Excel
I like to print an Excel-sheet directly. The sheet is an
phone-list, and has to be printed directly, so that bad-
schooled users can use that button too.
I guess that there are some parameters or so that send a
document directly to the default printer. Straingely I
can't find them anywhere.
If you find the file in Windows Explorer, for example, you can right-click
on it and print it from there. This opens Excel, loads the workbook, prints
it and then closes Excel.

I'm trying to find a symbol to Format/Cells/Custom, a symbol that

of 24 hours, "m" is equal to sixty minuets and "s" is equal to sixty
seconds, this [h] will roll hours over past 24, and I know to format
cells like this h� m' s.00\" but these symbols represent time not the

I have created a bar chart in an access report. I want the bars to change
color based on the value of the specific bar. For example, if the value of a
bar is less than 1, it is red, if it is between 1 and 5, it is yellow, if it
is greater than 5 it is green.
How can I do this?
Seems like an easy problem, but I've just spent a couple of hours playing
with this and I can't make it work. The problem is that the Value property
of the points in the SeriesCollection is not exposed in the VBA interface.
It certainly exists (eg. with the chart in design mode, if you hover the

I have been playing around with conditional formatting. I Have a few text

fields in my subforms to be shaded if a record is started. I can get the
shading to work but I have the next record showing below the current record
that is entered. Those fields are also shaded, I only want them to shade if
there is anything entered in any of those 3 fields. Is there a wild card to
use so if anything is entered so the other 3 fields will shade?

Any ideas? Thanks?

I have several queries that contain several hard-coded formulas. If
possible, I would prefer that the formulas be referenced in a control or

once and have all the formulas reference this source.
It makes sense to do this. How you do it depends on what the formulas are?
For instance if you are just trying to get the data for a prior month, you
can change the formula to get the prior month based on the system ...Select records from query using added checkbox
