...Keeping the format but update the data
I have a report I run everyday. I want to update the data, but keep the
column sizes and formatting. Any suggestions? Anybody suggest a good ebook to
become more formuliar with excel?
JoeM, this could be as simple as recording a macro during the formatting of
the sheet after importing the data once. Then each day, after importing the
new data, you simply run that macro.
As for online eBook's for Excel, I'm not actually aware of any although I
suspect a Google search would turn up several. It's hard to beat the "For
Dummies..." series of hardcopy...Where free 2 sigma statistical process control chart, free?

Is there a way to know the physical dimensions of a chart object on a
worksheet? I have data in several worksheets and I would like all my
charts to be of the same size (obviously this means that data with a
smaller range of values will be more spread out than data with a larger
range of values).
This is just an example:

I'd like to add an axis with same values on the right side of the chart.
You'll need to have at least two series in order to enter a secondary axis.
On one of the series, change the Axis to Secondary axis.

each salesperson performed against the *average* of total sales?
I am envisioning a vertical bar chart with a horizontal line at the average,
but I need a solution that can be generated by a macro.
Any advice? Thanks in advance.
That's how you would do it, a column chart with a horizontal line. On this web page, I give a

I have the following data for example.
A = 2
C = 4
I can create a 2 D Bar chart from this quite easily.

mentioned in the first example, but I want to control the width of the

In Excel 2003, one could double-click a chart, print, and the chart would
auto-size to fill a page.
I am unable to print my newly-created Excel 2007 charts so they auto-size to
print one-to-a-page (now requires several time-consuming steps for
reformatting titles, axes, etc.).
I do not have a "print to scale" option in my page setup.

Is the strikethrough formatting option no longer available in Publisher? Or
if you need to use a strikethrough do you have to draw a line through the

I am trying to email a long hyperlink path to some one that can only receive

When they receive the email it, the hyperlink gets converted in to 2 lines,
top line is a hyperlink (path incomplete) the second line is "text" with the
balance of the hyperlink path.
I placed < > around the hyperlink and it still splits in to 2 lines.
Is there any way to keep the full link path intact?

I'm used to Outlook 2003, but I just bought a new computer and installed
Outlook 2007. I view a week at a time, and I prefer the calendar format in
2003 -- it shows the whole week in two columns and I didn't have to scroll.
Is there a way I can use the same format in 2007?
No, unfortunately that view had to be removed to enabled calendar overlay.
