FRx cell formatting
It would be a nice feature to have specific cell formatting in FRx.

Excel 2007 displayed dates
When I enter dates in the Uk english format (dd/mm/yyyyy) in Excel 2007, even though they are formatted to display dd/mm/yyyy, they are dispayed in the US english format (mm/dd/yyyy). The formula bar shows that the cell contains a date in the UK format as entered. The language setting in Excel Options is UK. I wrote a macro containing an InputBox requesting a date, having previously defined the variable for this input as Date. The input is entered in the UK format but when assigning the value of this variable to a cell, it is displayed in US format. Not only is it displayed cont...

Cell formatting #4
For print formatting purposes I need to duplicate a keyed in numeric value from one cell (say A4) into another cell (say Z4). In many cases the original cell (A4) will be blank. How do I make the duplicate cell (Z4) remain blank also? Right now I end up with the original cell (A4) as blank and the duplicate cell (Z4) as a 0 value. If I do put an entry into the original cell, it will be numeric (say 1.3). The duplicate cell will have the same number of significant digits as the original cell.

excel vba
I have a workbook set up and i'm having a tough time with this protection stuff. I have tried different .unprotect methods but it doesn't work. I have a print button with coded conditions such as if cell a1 = "this" then certain cells get the borders formatted to be white, etc. then it prints one page, changes the format back and then prints 2 pages like that and saves the page. Anyways, bottom line is that there are format changes which are done before and after printing. My code is set up so that as soon as the person goes into the main page, it becomes protected in order t...

If you don't want repetitions they are not real random numbers.

help with Conditional formatting pairs of cells
I have a spreadsheet which is laid out as a burial ground map showing who is buried where and whether a headstone is in place. 2 cells represent one grave as there may be 2 people buried there. The format has 4 conditions: Empty used used+memorial reserved. The sheet has 10 columns of around 20 pairs of cells. Conditional format over the whole range works fine when the pair of cells for a grave are marked empty or where both cells are used (for 2 people in a grave). My problem is finding an easy way to conditionally format the second cell of each pair to match the ...

Date Invoice Paid Off
Customer wanted to show the Date Invoice Paid Off (DINVPDOF) field in his Sales Transaction History report. The steps: 1. I created a SOP Invoice with one Line Item. 2. I input an Amount Remaining equal to the total Document amount. 3. I posted the SOP Invoice. 4. I went to SQL Query Analyzer and have seen that the DINVPDOF in RM20101 didn't get updated with the correct date. There is no DINVPDOF field in Sales Order Processing (only in Receivables Management). Customer is hoping there is a possibility for the database to either have a DINVPDOF in SOP or for the DINVPDOF field in R...

Dates in chart
I have a chart that has data for Monday-Friday only of each week for 12 weeks. The dates are based upon a formula, so alternate every week showing a rolling 12 week chart. Unfortunately, the chart is showing 5 days with 2 days for the weekend being blank as there is never data at the weekends and so far attempts to rid the weekends, which are not in the original data at all, have proved futile. Can anyone suggest how to rid Saturday and Sunday from the chart? All help appreciated. Ellie Hi, You need to set the axis to be category rather than date. Right click chart and pick Chart O...

FORMATTING - hard questions
I have a cell which has plain text i.e. "Hello World" but between Hello and World I press Alt-Enter to place the word "World" on the second line so that the column width doesn't have to be long. But when I reference this cell from another one, Excel not only shows a weird ASCII character in between the words but also does not show the two words on separate lines as in the original cell.

Formatting XmlSerializer Output
I'm using classes generated from xsd.exe. I am serializing them with XmlTextWriter, and everything works fine. Our customer, though, has a silly requirement that dollar amounts (in the .xsd as decimals) be formatted to always include cents (regardless if there are cents or not). I'm interested in using the classes to only output data (i.e. I'm not parsing incoming data) I've tried setting up the following construct to format the output of each of the affected decimal fields, but I don't get anything written out to the .xml file. What am I missing - and is there a bette...

Chronological Date Orders
Hi I have a worksheet column (L6:L34) into which users are asked to enter dates that payments are made. The columns are formatted as 'Date' and Data Validation is set to ensure a date is entered. A blank entry is allowed. Initially all the cells are blank and the user is expected to populate the cells, starting with the earliest date in L6 and moving sequentially down the column. Of course, there's no guarantee it will happen that way. It doesn't matter if a cell is skipped (left blank), but I would like to ensure that any dates that are entered, are entered in chron...

Conditional Formatting (on OpenForm?
Hi, I have a form with datasheetview. I want to add conditional formatting to some textboxes. I have to do this via code, because it can be variable. (The expression compares the vendor-price with the client-price.) I add the conditional formatting on OnOpen-event. The problem is that the fields have a NULL-value at that time, I guess, because it crashes on the expression. What am I doing wrong? Via the dialogboxes this works, but via code it crashes.
