Excel should allow auto shape boxes to be fixed to points on the g

I have constructed a graph that has data added to it daily. On the graph I 
have used several auto shape boxes to highlight key data milestones. Problem 
is every time I add new data the auto shape boxes move and have to be 
manually adjusted to repoint them to the relevant data point. Is there any 
way they can be fixed to the relevant data points on the graph so that they 
remain fixed to that point and therefore don't move/shift when new data is 
added?

Can I only allow printing to pdf in Excel?
I have created a template in Excel which has been set up so that the layout is perfect when printing to pdf (which is how the document will mostly be used) but the layout changes if printing direct to our printer.

Excel 2003 Print Issue
I have created a spreadsheet to help with a university engineering assignment and I have added a worksheet that is basically an automatically generated report of all the calculations.

The report is arranged vertically in the worksheet, so the pages are 'stacked' on top of each other.

How to create a scrollable dialog box ?
Hi I've created a dialog resource (it uses CDialog as the base class) that is longer than the height on the screen (this is for WinCE, but the question still applies to desktop windows). I want the user to be able to scroll down the dialog filling in data in editbox's as they go. How do I get the dialog to be scrollable (i.e. a scroll bar at the right hand side that works as a CScrollView would). In eVC++ (and in VC6 also) there is a box to tick of a vertical scrollbar (in the resource editor) but the scroll bar seems to be disabled at run time. Are there some window messages that ...

Editable Excel Spreadsheet Online?
Hi, I tried to recent find information on this, but could find very little. How difficult would it be to host an excel spreadsheet online where visitors to the site can directly view and edit it? Right now, I can upload the spreadsheet to our web site and visitors can view it, but if they edit it, they can only save it to their local drive. I would like the users to be able to save the copy on the server. What would be involved in something like this?
