Pivot Table Cycling Through Page Fields Automatically
Hi. I am trying to cycle through a complete set of data in one of the
parameters in the "Page" field. For example, there are 500 investments, and I
want to compute the internal rate of return (IRR) for each investment based
on a series of cashflows for each investment.
The IRR is a function that is placed outside the pivot table. As each
investment number is chosen, the underlying pivot table cashflow data
changes, allow the IRR function to pick up these cashflows and compute the
IRR. However, if there are 500 investments, this becomes very time consuming

I have a Table called ServiceTypes. Based on a User's input on a
ProposalForm, ServiceTypes need to be added to a ProposalServicesTable.
For instance, I have a Check Box on the ProposalForm. When a Check Box is
clicked Yes, Access must search the ServiceTypes Table, select a specific
ServiceTypeID, and add the ServiceType to the ProposalServicesTable.
How can I add the proper Service record from the ServiceTable to the
ProposalServicesTable based on the Check Box?
I wouldn't do it that way. I'd use a listbox (with multi-select set to YES)
that was sourced to the ServiceTab...Converting XLS file to QIF or to OFX

...lost data when opening excel workbooks ; text import wizard popup
When opening many of my excel files ,which all have the same modification
date, I come across the text import wizard which states that my text in these
files is 'delimited'. All of the files ,including a few word doc.s have had
their data changed to show all " y " with two dots above the letter for as
far as the eye can see. No import or export has been done with the files and
no modifications were done on that date, as far as I know.
Is this a corruption problem or is their some 'fix' that I am overlooking.
Thanks for any ideas.
...Saving a calculated field
First, yes I have read the threads on storing a calculated field and that it
is bad mojo to do that. However, I have pay data that I calculate and input
to a database and it must be able to be reconciled with our ADP data. So I
need the ability to change and fix the data so it does not change as a result
of recalculations. I have a form with a field that calculates the pay based
on hours and pay rate. I have another field (the "copy" field) next to that
one that has the control source set to the database field. I have set the
default value of that field to be equal to the...conversion lotus 123 files to excel -- problem
I am converting lotus123 files to excel2002. One problem is that in lotus, literals are ignored when found in a cell within a formula. Excel on the other hand is not doing this and therefore causing #value errors on all the formulas where this occurs. Is there a way to handle this in excel other than manually having to change all the formulas?

If you are typing the data into the cell use Alt-Enter between each
string to indicate where you want a line break to occur.
Case One<Alt-Enter>Case Two
Alt + Enter

other records if they type no. How can I do this?
Also, could I present them with a simple text box (having yes and no

What is the easiest way to fill cells with linear

e.g. i have value 5 in cell A1, and value 15 in cell A6.
Cells A2 ... A5 should now be filles with 7, 9, 11, 13.
of course, it's not a big deal to write a formula for

by some mouse clicks....?)
Select the range A1:A6 with your start and stop value in their respective cells,
and then do Edit / Fill / Series / Trend / Linear
