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 ?

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

I was wondering if anybody had any idea what kind of drop down box thi
is. How can I edit or create one

Is there an easy way to select all of the text boxes at once?

I'm a bit new to the excel "range" object type. I was suprised to see that

dim chunk as Range
chunk = .Range(A5:B6)
I apparently cannot do:

dim stuff as string
string = "A5:B6"
How can I concatenate up a string describing a range, and then use it to
define a range object's target cells?

Hi all ---
I'm thinking of putting the .Tag property to use by using a binary

possible uses for .Tag but have never standardized how I use it.
Has someone developed a convention for "parsing" binary flag words? A
simple IF works if I only need to test for one flag, but if I need to
check for the presence of multiple bits the only construct that comes to
mind is a series of IF statements .... something along the lines of:

I've created a dialog resource (it uses CDialog as the base class) that is

still applies to desktop windows).
I want the user to be able to scroll down the dialog filling in data in

How do I get the dialog to be scrollable (i.e. a scroll bar at the right
hand side that works as a CScrollView would).
