How to make Outlook to invoke the IE browser instead of the Firefox browser
Hi, Whenever I click a link in an email, outlook always invoke Firefox instead of IE. How do I set Outlook to invoke IE (although I prefer Firefox outside the outlook environment)? Could somebody help me out? I looked through the Tools -> Options but didn't find anything regarding settting association programs. Thanks for any help.

Anyone know how to set accelerator text for menu commands?
I have created a menu with text like this: "Do something\tCtrl+Left Arrow" When I run the program, this gets output in the menu as "Do something CTRL+NUM 4" Either Windows or the MFC has detected the accelerator and changed the text of the accelerator part of the menu command for me - i.e. "Ctrl+Left Arrow" has somehow become "CTRL+NUM 4". But I don't want this text. I prefer what I had. Does anyone know how to stop this happening? TIA Simon I can't see how it could possibly know what text you had there. It looks like it...

How do I display repeating text between worksheets only once on ta
Hi, I'm new to XLS and trying to work out how to display details from a XLS report I receive. I copy and paste the all details to a new work sheet. I want to display the names of the resources I'm tracking to a new work sheet. The catch is first cell (column a) starts blank first time this is run so I cant use vlookup as far as I can tell, Once the first name is displayed I then need it to skip this name as it repeats (sometimes) in the report - then display the next name and so on to each next free cell in the column. The 2nd time I run this I want any new names to be added to ...

Text output of a date/time field
I want to convert a date/time field to a text field so that I can import the XLS file into a table in Access. This is because I want to have my time field in the Access DB sometimes store an actual text (like "Lunch") rather than a time. If I force the first few records to have some text in the time field, then Access imports the time data like "1/1/1900" I want to end up with all text in the time field, not a date/time value.

Click Boxes for each series in a graph
I have a chart with three series over time. Lets say the range is C2:Z5. The time is expressed in row 2 and the series data in rows 3,4,5. I want to be able to turn the series on with click boxes.

Extend visible cell text over adjacent cell
Apologies if this has been answered previously but I don't even know what to search for! If I type a long string into a cell (without wrap checked), the cell contents will be displayed in full if the cell(s) to the right are empty. However, if they contain information, the first cell's contents are visible only up to the border of the two cells. This makes sense under normal circumstances. I am looking for a way to enforce this first overlapping behaviour. The adjacent cell contains important info but does not need to be seen. In fact, I have made the font white so that it is invisib...
