I have a regular area chart and my data labels are several points away from
where the value crosses the X other words I need my data labels
to move up each time the graph is drawn. I am using VBA to draw the graphs
automatically - I know I can move the labels manually but since I have this
fully automated, I need to automatically have the data labels sit on top of
the value where the top of my area graph crosses the X axis......

If the points have data labels, and you've used one of the standard 
positions for the labels (above, left, etc.), the data labels move with 
the points.  Or are you asking about axis tick labels?

downloading Avery labels templates
Version: 2008 Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) Processor: Intel I am panicking! I do volunteer work for an organization which includes sending out mailings to over 200 people. I usually print mailing labels from Avery label templates. Although I have done it in the past, I am no longer able to download Avery labels from their website. Does anyone else have this problem?

Data changes when Analyzed with Excel
I have a query with 3 tables that represent master item list, count qty and as qty. When I look at the results in Query, all is well and accurate yet when I select Analyze with Excel, values change. For example, if a record shows zero qty in the as of field and zero quantity in the count field, I get a value in one or both of the fields that origianlly were zero. Other than linking the tables and grouping by master item list (to show all parts regardless of qty's), there are no formulas or expressions in this query.

Help with ActiveX
Hi all. I am just getting my feet wet using MFC and am having trouble with an ActiveX control I created. Essentially, I need an ActiveX control that is a container for local controls.

The exe provides the user interface while the ActiveX provides instrument feedback. There are no input fields on the ActiveX but there are several text fields and a progress bar. I am managing the text fields and progress bar in...
