Excel Regional Date Format Options
A client of ours in NZ is complaining that date format options for English
(New Zealand) have changed from older versions of excel (they are using 2003)
Some of their spreadsheets have dates formatted as dd-mmm-yy, mmm-yy and
dddd,dd,mmm but these options do not exist anymore.
Is there anyway to add options to this list without using the custom format
I just compared the Excel 97 and Excel 2003 built-in date formats and they
are mostly unchanged. 2003 has a few more but I don't think there were any
subtractions. The formats dd-mmm-yy and mmm-yy are righ...When I am in one cell highlight another
When I am in one cell highlight another. Lets say that if my cursor is in
A1 I want D1 highlighted or with another cursor on it.
Then if I move to A2, D2 should be the one with another cursor or highlighted.
Thank you for your help,

Newbi here.... I have a access 07 file of about 1000 records (rows) and a
field (column) I'll call the "project number". All the records do not have
the project number inserted as of yet. Is there a simple means to insert a
project number in say 50 records at a time, another project number in
another 75 records etc. Copy/Paste will do it but may take months to enter.
Any suggestions appreciated. TIA

Hi - I have never used pivot tables in Excel before so hopefully what I am
going to ask is possible and not too complicated for me.... :o)
I am working with Excel 2003. I have a pivot table already set up and the
information is pulling data from a row titled "sum of Subscriber". I added
new data in a new column from the main spreadsheet and I would like to pull
the data from there. Its titled "Adj Subscriber".
Is it possible to switch it? If so, how?
Thanks, Anna Marie

I created form "Invoice". It contains few list boxes (like: Brand,

Products_tbl and clicks on "Add to invoice" button which adds to each
list box new item containg apropriate information about chosen
product. At the end, user can print the form. Before it was limited,

Please help, I'm stuck! I conducted a survey where respondants each gave

-this is my query, if C5 is already in (A1:A10) I want to display B5 in
I think it is tricky because you need to identity which row in the A1:A10 is
equal to C5 to display B5 and the range are different.

...Remove Data Format Change
I have a program that puts a database's data into an excel spreadsheet. The
problem is that Excel is constantly changing the numbers to dates, which
corrupts the data. I know I can switch the column data type to Text and that
will fix it, but the problem is that when the data is written to the
spreadsheet it overwrites that column data type and Excel does the formatting
that changes my data. How can I turn this off so Excel stops trying to
recognize data types and change their format? Please help because this is
causing major problems for us.
