How to select series in chart?
I know I asked this question before, but (sigh) I cannot find the
answer now, when I need it of course.
How can I select a series in an Excel chart (XY Scatter) using the
keyboard, not the mouse?
The issue is: I have overlapping series, so it is difficult for me to
select a series by moving the mouse cursor to a point in one series and
right-clicking it, as I normally do.
Someone once mentioned a ctrl and/or shift key combination (I think)
that would allow me to select each series explicit in round-robin
fashion. That is what I am looking for again.

I am writing a user control that will help a user that know (almost)

The idea is to have a treeview on the left and a property grid on the
The treeview is loaded with the root elements from the schema.
When the user right click on a node, a context menu allow him to add
subnodes if schema allow it.
This way, the user can create items, attributes, ...
The property grid is filled by the user with data.
At the end, the Xml file is generated and validated.

I do not believe that this can be achieved automatically through standard

However, it would be possible using the Outlook object model. An Addin would

Testing a Sharepoint environment and I can easily manipulate and run the
database from Access 2007, but when I try to use Access 2003 it wants me to
save the database to a location. The Access 2003 has the compatiblity pack,
but it seems to not work when I download it.
So the question is using Sharepoint 2007 and posting the Access 2007 format
to it, can a user go to the sharepoint site and use a 2003 Access database
that has the compatibility pack and open without having to download it?

...Getting rid of selection
How can I get rid of the selection rectangle? It seems that it's always

I'm trying to get rid of it altogether, so I can capture an image of the

I can achieve the effect that I want by selecting a cell which is
outside the area that I'm trying to capture, but now that I've found
that I cannot get rid of it entirely, it is driving me nuts trying to do so.

Happy New Year Everyone!
I wrote a small program to process some data files. I would like to
integrate its functionality to the Windows shell, so I can right-click
on these files and select options from the menu (just like WinZip does).
I have been playing with the registry, and successfully added
right-click functionality, but I can only do static menus. I would like
the menus to be dynamic, since the options will vary depending on the
content of the data file.
Is there any sample code that illustrates this? I have been searching a
lot, and all I can find are examples in ...SQL 2008 running on a VM using all allocated memory
