how to I block text not to break across columns or pages ?
I want to keep certain text together and not have it split apart over columns
or on a new page: like several lines comprising an address in an address
book -- I want to keep it all together.
Either apply a style with the Keep With Next paragraph format option to all
but the last of the paragraphs you wish to keep together
Use Shift+Enter to make a line break within the same paragraph

Hi Christina -
There are a couple of well written Excel add-ins you can download to do

Excel's interface very nicely. They l...Report showing ID numbers only
I have tables set up, linked properly, forms, etc. Since I did forms and
subforms, I had to create separate tables and link them, so I used a primary
key ID in the tables. So far my database shows it is working - when
information is entered into the form, it shows up in the correct tables and
all that, but since I used all these primary keys, the tables just have a
bunch of the numbers that pertain to what was input rather than actual words.
I created a query with the fields that I want shown in the report, and I
created the report and when I run it it shows up the correct fields I want...Excel 2003 random number generator
Hi, I'm using Excel 2003 to do some actuarial work. I notice that if a very
large number of random number is generated(say 10000), and the spreadsheet is
run by Macro for a large number of times(say 1000), sometimes, Excel 2003
will generate some negative random numbers, which is nonsense. Some of my
friends told me earlier versions of Excel didn't have that problem. I'm sort
of wondering what is going on with Excel 2003 random number generator and if
Microsoft is going to develop a update to fix this problem.

After manipulating data in Excel I would like to copy and paste the data in a text editor. The data should be in fixed format, for example integer numbers should end in columns with multiples of 5. The text is then used as input to an old fashioned program which requires that the data be aligned
I changed the font in Excel to Courrier New and then selected a column width of 5. When I copy the data to a text editor it copies some tab marks and the columns do not align. How can I make things align in the text editor?
You can use a macro: copy the code below, then paste into a module...Locking a column. Excel, 2002.
I don't know if locking is the correct phraseology and perhaps that is why I

In column A are the numbers, 1, 2, 3, and so on and I want these numbers to
remain stationary (they are the rank ordering) when I do a sort on another
column (say H).
Select the range that you want to sort, but avoid column A. Then sort your

contiguous columns sorted.
Personally, I would sort that column, too.

(Odd, yes. I need to let users edit menu resources at runtime and

So I'm looking at CMenu's TrackPopupMenu function, whose last

Is there a way to export data in a MS Excel spreadsheet

This concept is the opposite of importing text as "Fixed

like to export columns into a text file and specify the
amount of spaces between the text that is being exported
from each column. The amount spaces in the text file
needs to be different between each set of column data.
