I have a chart which should get a title. However, this should be partly be

Is this possible?
Yes it's possible but all of the chart title needs to be in the cell. So you
may need to use a helper cell and concatenate text and value.

...Auto-format in Microsoft Excel.
Each time i try to enter a number range, for example, 8-
10, in Excel, it constantly re-formats it to a date. If I
change the formatting to "General" it turns it into a
random number, usually 38209. I would like to turn off
ALL auto-formatting, but that's probably asking too
much. How do I disable this frustrating feature?
When you enter "8-10" in a cell, that's not strictly a number but Excel
thinks you mean a date so converts it as such.

I really appreciate the way that Outlook auto-normalizes phone numbers -
for example, here in the US, I can enter 5555555555 and Outlook

Why CRM 3.0 doesn't do this out of the box is strange but if anyone has
ideas on how to implement, that'd be greatly appreciated. I've worked very
hard to normalize all my data before import, but I know it's a matter of
time before our users (ok, our sales people) destroy all that hard work by
entering garbage into every phone field entry that the system cannot
