How do I get Excel to open a previously saved file?
With Excel not opened, all of sudden when I try to open an existing Excel
file, it only opens a blank workbook. I then have to repeat the action of
opening the file from the blank workbook. I am not sure what has happened but
I have always just been able to just click on the Excel file I want to open
and it would automatically open Excel and the intended file. Please advise
Make sure that Ignore other applications is unchecked.
that's all i can think of

Does anyone know how to get this to work using the 3-light conditional
formatting in Excel 2007 using the reference to another cell? I need it
pretty much the same way as listed above, but it is not working for me.
Here is the set up I currently have.
ROW 1 MTD ACTUAL BUDGET DIFFERENCE
ROW 2 120 120 130 -10
I want the 3-Light Conditional Formatting to be used on the MTD column with
this formula set up below.
GREEN LIGHT >= =D2=0
YELLOW LIGHT >= =D2=(-3)
Why is this not working? Any and every bit of help would be most appreciated!

There's nothing magic about file extensions: you can use whatever you want.

How do I convert a pivot table to a pivot chart
My colleague Debra Dalgleish has posted this tutorial on my web site:
IMHO, pivot charts are a great idea whose time hasn't yet come. There
is a limited choice of chart types, the chart can be formatted only in
limited ways (you can't change the PLOT AREA!), the whole pivot table
must be included, and whatever formatting you may have applied is
obliterated when the pivot table is updated.
I generally make regular charts from pivot table data. In Excel 97,

I want to encrypt text in Excel. I want the character spacing to be accurate,
I just want the actual text to be encrypted to a user. Anyone know any
tricks, shortcuts, add-ins to do this?
One more note. It is the text in a given range of cells that I want to
encrypt. I've tried looking at different fonts and then locking the cells
(protecting worksheet) but none of the built-in Wingding fonts keep the
character spacing intact. I thought that maybe there was a way to do a custom
number or text format but wasn't able to get that to work.
...run an excel file remotely
i got an excel application that generates reports from
underlying pivot tables.
the reports are generated using excel 2003. but most of
the clients donot have licenses for 2003 and some of the
features of 2003 cannot be used when the file is opened
from the client system. for example GETPIVOTDATA is not
very flexible as it was in 2003 version.
So is it possible to run the excel application from the
server without being copied to the client system. This
also helps in maintaing single version of the excel file
rather than multiple versions on each client system.

I'm working on a Windows service that will update CRM objects from an other

then I could pass that to my SDK calls. However in doing this I get the

Am I correct? Did I miss a step?

We are using Dynamics 9.0 and Office 2003. When we try to do a Smart List
export to Excel, we keep getting an "Exception_Class_Object_Exception" that
references varying object errors, such as 'Cells' or 'Value'; the object
errors will change each time we try an export. As a workaround, I've found
that closing Excel before doing the export allows the export to complete
successfully. However, that solution isn't acceptable, as our Dynamics users

My spread has several sheets and two of these have eight graphs on each

Since i have upgraded to Excel 2003 from 2000, some chart titles no
longer print. I have upgraded my printer drivers and also tried this on
other Excel 2003 machines, and they have the same problem.
However, if i go back to an Excel 2000 machine it prints fine.
The report is distributed to users of both versions.
Any ideas how to fix this?
I don't really have a guess.
Have you tried it on different printers (if you have them available)?

Areas under the curve within one standard deviation could be green, those

Just as an example.
