Using tables created in 2003 IN 2007

My office has recently upgraded to 2007. I enjoy new features such as the 
ability to highlight a few words within the table without the ENTIRE table's 
font changing; unfortunately, this only works in tables I have created since 
the upgrade. My old tables that were brought over from 2003 do not have this 
capability. Is there an add-on out there? I do not have to resort to 
re-typing and creating all new tables. PS. Copy and pasting into a new table 
does not work. Convertting the file using the office button does not work. 
Help? please?

I think you talking about what is called rich text, and that is a new 
feature for 2007.

Open up the table in design mode, and for the column in question, it have to 
be a memo column.

In the property sheet setting, you see a property called

Text Format

If you change the above setting to rich text, then you get the 
font/color/size formatting available you speak of.

Note that these "rich text" memo columns can also be used on a forms, and 
then you have to set in BOTH places the text format (in the table, and ALSO 
the text box).

What Albert forgot to mention explicitly is that this only works when the 
database is in the new ACCDB file format. If your tables are still in the 
old MDB file format, you won't be able to use the feature even though you 
may be using Access 2007.

Autonumber created.. problems in the future?
I managed to create an autonumber in Microsoft CRM. I did this by making a field "Number"(in the database "New_Number") and I published it on the form. Then I went To the SQL server and I changed the field in the table to Identity Yes, Identity seed 1, Identity Increment 1. I locked the field on the form. It worked! I think that this is not supported by Microsoft. But has anybody got any idea which troubles i could get with this configuration?

Formula without using numbers after decimal in the answer
I have a formula that derives the answer from a figure with a decimal. I don't want to use the figures after the decimal. Is there a way to just use the whole number and omit the numbers after the decimal without having to manually key in all these numbers manually? Thanks, Mustang You can use the INT function. This 'rounds down' any number to th nearest integer, e.g. if A1=2.567, a formula in B2 of =INT(A1) return 2 HTH Bruc -- swatsp0 ----------------------------------------------------------------------- swatsp0p's Profile:

Using Relative path for XML data file?
Is there a way to specify a relative path to an XML data file imported into Excel 2003? I am writing a web app that generates report data as XML for the user to download to their local machine. This data is to be consumed by an Excel reporting spreadsheet, which contains display-formatted tables and charts that are mapped to various data fields in an XML Map, which is in turn linked to the xml data file they will download. The idea is the user only needs to download the data for updates, not the whole spreadsheet. However, since I cannot predict the path where the user will store their...

Redirect Exchange 2000 IS backup to different Exchange 2003 server
