Hide Alternate Labels on Date Axis


I'm having trouble trying to hide every other label along a horizontal
date axis. I start on the 01-Jan up to 10-Jan and through using the
'Format Axis'->'Scale'->'Major Unit' and setting this to 2 I can hide
the labels: '02-Jan'; '04-Jan'; etc.

However, I want to hide the odd dates: '01-Jan'; '03-Jan'; etc. I have
tried the various combinations with the dialog box but can't get
anything to work.

Should I be using a custom formula or something?

Any help is much appreciated.

How about just starting the x-axis at Dec. 31?

Cannot schedule an appointment for any day but the current date???
Hi. I'm running Outlook 2000 on Win2K and recently reformatted and performed a clean install. When clicking on a specific date to schedule an appointment in Calendar, the current date always appears in the date fields. After entering the proper date & information and saving, the appointment appears from the date I selected back to the current date. I am clueless, and wonder if I am overlooking a simple checkbox option. I ran the "Detect and Repair" utility and then reinstalled Office 2000 over the existing install, both to no avail.

Hide column based on data value
I use auto-filter to switch a spreadsheet between a terse view and verbose view. Column B is auto-filtered, and it's either blank or non-blank. Call it a "tag column." Some column B cells have constants; others, formulas. It works fine. Can the same effect be achieved somehow to hide columns rather than rows? I'd like one row to be a "tag row." Then, I'd like to switch between terse view and verbose view by hiding columns based on what's in the tag row for each column. Can you suggest an easy way to do this without VBA?

Auto-exclusion of data labels for zero values
Hi guys, xl97 question. Is there a way to have data labels enabled** for all points plotted but with the labels automatically *excluded* for any zero values ? The exclusion is desired for aesthetic reasons. **e.g.: via Data Labels > Show value in say, Format Data Series dialog I find that these "zero" values showing on say, a column chart, have to be individually selected and removed on each series in a chart, a pretty tedious task. The values plotted are derived through formula and there would always be a couple of points here and there evaluating to zero values from time-to...
