Message p...Suppressing zeros after the decimal point
How can I force zeros to display following a decimal point in Excel 2002? Whenever I type a number, such as 3.200, Excel drops the zeros and only enters 3.2 into the cell. Is there a setting that can be changed to fix this? (Using the "0.00" custom format seems to help, but if I have another number, such as 4.70, which only needs one zero to display, then I need another custom format for that one, and the next one, etc.) If anyone has a simpler suggestion, I'd appreciate it. Thanks!

You may use Data/Get External Data, but this not the same as linked table.
Depending on your needs, you may consider using a VBA procedure (macro)
to read the data with a DAO.Recordset and copy it manually into to your
cells - you can copy also a complete recordset, see CopyFromRecordset in

thanks stefa...excel charts look drastically different on different computers
When we open excel charts on different computers in our office the formatting
looks drastically different (for example, data labels and arrows on charts
are in different locations). This is a huge problem because it means that the
formatting has to be fixed each time someone opens an excel chart. This was
never a problem until recently when some of our staff got new computers and
for a short time they were using Office 2007 (everyone else in the office was
using Office 2003). We've switched everyone back to Office 2003, but the
problem with excel charts persists.

How do I change the default setting for the "Line Weight" when creating

You can't change the default line weight. However, you can create a custom
chart with the heavier line weights and then use that custom chart instead of
Excel's defaults. To do so, click once on your finished chart with the
heavier line weights. Go to the standard toolbar and select Chart -> Chart
Type. In the Chart Type dialog box, select the Custom Types tab. ...XP Style button using MFC 4.2

For certain charts that I create within Excel 2003 (usually bar
charts), I use a font size of 8 (eg for data labels, axis labels, and
scale). If I close the file and then re-open it, all these fonts will
have become size one (title and legend are not effected).
Oddly, if I have created a bar chart and made several copies of it
within a worksheet, it will only be the original and not the copies
that are affected by this.
If anyone can shed any light on why this may be happening and how it
could be fixed, I would really appreciate it.

XL2000 and XL2003 share exactly the same file format and so should open
