Highlighted word wont DEL when I use Bakspc only in office/word
When I highlight a word in and hit the Backspace key it will not delete the
word, this is only in outlook and word , however I can delete using the
backspace key using one key stroke at a time.
In Tools > Options > Edit, check "Typing replaces selection". (In Word 2007
this option is at Office button > Word Options > Advanced.)

I managed to create an autonumber in Microsoft CRM. I did this by
making a field "Number"(in the database "New_Number") and I published
it on the form.
Then I went To the SQL server and I changed the field in the table to
Identity Yes, Identity seed 1, Identity Increment 1.
I locked the field on the form.
I think that this is not supported by Microsoft. But has anybody got
any idea which troubles i could get with this configuration?

Is there a way to specify a relative path to an XML data file imported into
Excel 2003? I am writing a web app that generates report data as XML for the
user to download to their local machine. This data is to be consumed by an
Excel reporting spreadsheet, which contains display-formatted tables and
charts that are mapped to various data fields in an XML Map, which is in turn
linked to the xml data file they will download.
The idea is the user only needs to download the data for updates, not the
whole spreadsheet. However, since I cannot predict the path where the user

I have a formula that derives the answer from a figure with a decimal. I

manually key in all these numbers manually?
You can use the INT function. This 'rounds down' any number to th
nearest integer, e.g. if A1=2.567, a formula in B2 of =INT(A1) return

Now, I dont want to use SSL (security not that important) and i am told by
this article that i can disable SSL in windows registry.
Note While RPC over HTTP does not require Secure Sockets Layer, you must
modify the registry to enable RPC over HTTP if you do not want to use Secure
Sockets Layer. Microsoft recommends that you enable and require Secure
Sockets Layer for your RPC over HTTP communications.

What d...default values in a cell
Hello, can you help me please
Cell B1 contains a complex mathematical formula which requires (in several

Cell A1 can contain any integer number, but it is usually the same (30).
I would like to be able to leave cell A1 empty, and only enter a number when
it is not 30 ,
ie the default value of A1 is 30, unless specified.
How do I go about this ?
Should I look at conditional formatting, or put lots of IF functions into an
already complex formula?

Well, it is, actually, and the resulting .chm file works properly in HTML
But it's a bit tedious getting that wrong useless error message from VS2002
on every build. (Well, not every build, it only does it sometimes actually.)
Any idea how I can persuade it to stop telling me this?

...How to create an autonumber field?
i need to create an autonumber field to automate account numbering. how can

You can do this using a post callout piece of code so when you update an
account this code is called which calls back into the platform and works out
the last account number then adds one to it and updates the account record.

The help states you can only add error bars to data series in 2D area. Is

I would not have thought so. Obviously as it is not a built-in option
the only way would be a work around perhaps using dummy series.
Unfortunately you can create 3d combination charts.
Stick with the 2d view.
