How to use outlook address in Excel
I have an Excel sheet which I use as an invoicing-application. I would like
to retrieve address-data from Outlook where I keep all my contact-data of my
customers. So, I want to select a customer from my Outlook contactlist when I
am writing a new invoice in Excel.
In Word, I have a macro which does this, but unfortunately the
Application.GetAddress does not work in Excel.
Can somebody help me ?

I'm not sure if I should be posting this question here or in the Excel
forum but here goes. Is it possible to copy data from multiple cells in
Excel and then paste them into multiple lines of the criteria section of an
Access query? For example, Given cells and values: A1- 1
I would like to be able to copy this data from Excel and paste it into an
Access query like : Criteria: 1

However, the drop down boxes are not typical forms. These drop dow
boxes appear to be normal cells (They contain text). When I click o
the box, a little gray box shows up w/ a down arrow to the right of th
cell. However, if you right click on the cell, there aren't an
property options that are displayed.
I was wondering if anybody had any idea what kind of drop down box thi
is. How can I edit or create one

I am trying to select multiple text boxes for formatting the font but seem

Is there an easy way to select all of the text boxes at once?
To select multiple objects on the sheet --
Click on one object
Hold the Ctrl key, and click on additional objects
To select all the objects on the sheet --
Choose Edit>Go To, click Special

Or, to work with specific objects, you can add the 'Select Multiple

In Page Setup: If you are using the Scaling option to print to a certain
number of pages wide by pages tall and/or you are using the columns to repeat
at left, try:
- clearing the number of pages tall value (so that it is blank), and/or
- if you are printing to one page wide, remove the columns to repeat at left

I have created a template in Excel which has been set up so that the layout
is perfect when printing to pdf (which is how the document will mostly be
used) but the layout changes if printing direct to our printer. Is there a
way that I can ONLY allow printing to pdf from this document?
You may consider using some VBA to achieve this.
One way is to use the Workbook_BeforePrint event and specify the pdf printer
in the PrintOut method, eg:
Private Sub Workbook_BeforePrint(Cancel As Boolean)
ActiveSheet.PrintOut copies:=1, ActivePrinter:="CutePDF Writer on CPW2:"

I have the same problem as has already been discussed on the forum (see

The orginal issue was solved by using Rob Bovey's XY Chart Labeler to add
labels. The free download is at his web site:
But in my case I have lots of XY points (155 to be precise). The problem is
that 155 visible labels make the chart look very messy. Is there anyway to

I am not certain I fully understand your question, but I am going to give it
a stab. Excel charts are very flexible, and I think you need to keep in mind
that you need to have the right data in place to draw the chart. I.e. don't
focus on the chart itself, focus on the data in the spreadsheet you are
trying to chart, and once that is in place, your chart will look the way you

You can not clear it whenever you want. You can however set the no of file

though the series is charted as actual values.) The two cells I'm using to
label the two points in my series are not next to each other, if this is
important. I CTRL-click the two cells and they are listed in the selection

This looks good to me. But while the values in D8 and AG8 are 5.33% and
