excel macros truncating tabs for hidden columns.
I have written VBA macros in Excel 2003 to generate a tab delimited text
file.I have some hidden columns as well and the file is being generated fine
with extra tabs for the hidden columns.Howvever for line numbers >= 1985 the
hidden columns are being truncated as in these extra tabs are not being
generated. i process the file in my VB 6.0 application wherein i check the
number of tab delimited columns that are being generated. for line number>=
1985, the application gives me an error :"Invalid file format".
What is it that i am missing here!!!
...Accessing/Changing Keywords externally via Office 2004 mdimporter
Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard)
Is there a way to access and/or change the Keywords metadata for Excel and Word (Office 2004) without opening the application? I had a programmer write a program that accesses and changes the keywords metadata (without opening the application) for Microsoft Office 2008 files, iWork files, RTF files, PDF files, and a couple of others. It works great (and it only adds 1 second to modified data - so essentially there's no change - the 1 second is so that Chronosync will see the change.)

...various excel problems
I have a friend who has some problems with her Excel. Here are a few of
them. We would appreciate any help we can get:
1. The columns are labelled 1, 2, 3, etc. rather than A, B, C, etc.
How can she change the columns to letters?
2. When she hits the page down key on her computer the excel
spreadsheet goes down one line not the equivalent of a page. How can
she fix this?
3. When she wants to sum a set of numbers in a column, she can only sum
cells which numbers in them. That is, when she comes to a blank cell
the summing ends. How can she change her settings so that she can sum

...Excel in a Tablet Question
A friend has a tablet with excel on it. He is able to draw object in excel.
I wanted to used the macro recorder to record the steps he used, and it
doesn't record any hand drawn operations such as drawing circles, lines, arcs.
Does any one know I we can record those operations???
That would help me in writing VBA code to check the objects color and
determine if it needs to be visible or invisible.
You can record the selection of the completed object (Oval 5 here), and the
setting of it's properties, as:

I have a workbook with multiple sheets. I want the sheet 1 always to

updates it self automatically when different users use the book when its on

correctly. However, when I try to use the template with

changes in Office 2007, but my bigger issue is with Publisher 2007.
I have an image that I have used in Word just fine - meaning, the on screen

Someone sent me a Publisher file and asked me to add the image - I did this

I have a list of over 7000 unique numbers (i.e. 123 or 77-

anyone have any suggestions? Lots of thanks in advance.
one way (if you only have numbers): use acustom format :
in the adjacent column in row one (lets say in B1) enter the formula
="MH" & A1
copy this formula down

I've donated my old computer and software to a non-profit and need to convert

Hi, Judith. First, I don't recommend saving in multiple formats if they
won't need them because it just makes the file bigger. I have Excel 2003 and
Excel 5.0/95 and the one you mention are both available from the Files of

One of the fields being exported is an identifying number. It is
coming accross as 2.00309e+006. I can't get it to look like a regular

I've tried the same with Currency and Accounting. I've tried Text as
well. Please help.

I created an excel workbook using office 2003 on my computer and when i took
it to another computer using same excel prgram 2003 I could not open the book
it only opened the first sheet. i emailed it to the computer and copied it to
a cd and tried that. nothing worked.
It should open on any machine from Excel 97 up. I would check that when you
saved the workbook you did so as an 'Excel workbook' and not any of the
other file types that Excel can save as, such as very old versions, csv,
etc. These formats will only save a single-sheeted workbook.

Does it not work like it does in Word where you can "redo" the immediate

My "redo" function in Publisher 2007 will only work after I've used the
"undo" function and then only for the number of times that I used "undo" or
control z. For example, if I used the undo function to undo the last 5
changes I made, I can then "redo" those 5 changes but no more.
If I "do" something, and want to "redo" it a number of other times to other
areas of my document, I cannot. The function is gra...Changing picture resource
