Can't display all text in cell
I'm trying to display text in a cell. I've got Wrap Text on, and I hav
several paragraphs of text. All of it appears in the formula bar, bu
not in the cell displayed on the screen. And yes, I increased the ro
height, but it still doesn't show.

I am having the same problem. Apparantly there is a 1024
character limitation per cel in excel. The only advice I
have received so far, which does work, is to press
alt+enter to create a line break. If you find another
work around, I would be interested.
besid...Changing start date
In OL 2003, I have an event that's two weeks long, starting June 1 and
ending June 14. I want to change the start date to May 27 but leave
the end date alone. If I change the start date, OL automatically
changes the end date to preserve the two-week duration.
Is there a way to change the start date without affecting the end

I'm looking for suggestions on how to export data from an Access table or
Query into specific cells of a Worksheet. The table I'm importing will
always contain a single record only. For example, I'd like to export data
from Field1, field2...etc in an access table to Sheet2!A3, Sheet2!B3...etc.
Any sugestions would be most appreciative.
I have a row of cells that calculate the totals for their columns but I
force to be blank via IF statements until certain conditions are met.
Once these conditions are met, the total appears. I'd like to also

some reason all the cells format as though they are all > 0 yet they
don't display anything. Are there some internal rules that specifiy
when a cell is really 0? Is there another way to do this that won't

...Hotkeys for text & background coloring
Does anyone know the hotkeys for text coloring (font color) & background
coloring (fill color)?
First you need to select the font color & fill color in the related toolbar
- When I highlight "I am great", then press "Ctrl+O" for example, the text will
be colored as what it's displayed in the "font color" toolbr icon.
- The simliar way applies to background coloring
If the above is not available, any workaround is still apreciated.

Sure. Where you want a new line just press Alt+Enter. To remove that just
place the cursor at the end of the line before the new line and press Delete

Yes, you can change the column type after importing. Just go to the list
settings page and choose the column you would like to update. The very first
section of the column settings page will be for the data type of the column.

When I am selecting cells in Excell, I use the shift key and the arrows on my
keyboard. If I pause at all, the selection is lost when I continue with the
selection. Why? Can anyone help me?
If you have removed your finger from the shift key then Windows will think
you are starting a new selection. Just be sure that you don't touch the
arrows without the shift being held down.
