formatting dates by year #2
I would like to know if there is a way to format dates so
that they are formatted by year only. For example, if I
click on Format -> Cells, there are a bunch of options,
but none of them list to show the year only, just
mm/dd/yy or mm/yy, etc. I am trying to create a chart so
that only the year shows up. Also, I have tried doing
Custom->and "yyyy" in type, but only 1 specific year
shows up (i.e. 1905) for all the values. I would like to
keep my values.

If so, try: http://tinyurl.com/2nmyy

workbook A by itself, that the data it retrieves from Workbook B is not

The 11.5.5 autoupdate worked fine.
The 12.1.9 autoupdate downloads (apparently), but then it goes right
back to showing that the 12.1.9 update is available -- the updater
itself never actually launches.
Busy servers, maybe -- and the download isn't ever actually completing?
Or bad updater on the update server for 12.1.9?
The manual download from Mactopia of 12.1.9 installed properly -- this
is just the auto-update that's not working now.
You're right, the auto-update fail. It should be pulled or a message sent instructing to update by downloading directly...Contact oddity and why are there 2 Contact Lists?
