general fromat goes to 4 place decimals

Numbers entered in the general format (not numbers format) 
go out to 4 place decimals even when entered with-out 
decimals. Any clue? Is it a system setting thing?

They aren't also 10,000 times smaller than they should be are they??  OIf so,
then Tools / Options / Edit / Uncheck 'Fixed Decimals'

Print Preview #4
I would like to preview my worksheets that contains coloured cells as they will print on a BW printer so I know what my charts etc. will actually look like. How do I turn off the Print Preview in colour when printing to a BW printer? i.e. I want to see exactly what will print depending on what printer I go to (the BW or the Colour). Further, I am not asking about the Page Setup option of checkmarking Black and White as that will print in only Black and White and not scale my colours and patterns accordingly to the % they would actually print.

how do i create 4 pie charts
Hi, Could I enquire if someone could show me the steps to create 4 pie charts in diagram (1 pie chart representing one calendar year)? How do I modify the different size of the pie chart? Thanks a lot. Hi, A chart can only contain a single Pie chart so you will need to create 4 charts. If you create chartobjects these can be embedded in a worksheet or a blank chart sheet. To adjust the size you can alter the plot area. You don't mention what you are using to determine the size of the pie but this page may be of use. Cheers Andy Mik...

CRM 4.0 Private/Public Views
How do I make a view private in CRM 4.0? There are a bunch of system views that we do not use and that we obviously cannot delete. I used to just make them private in CRM 3.0, but I cannot figure out where to do that in 4.0. We also have a lot of views that are private because they are shared between sales teams and it seems like the "private" option has disappeared for 4.0. If it is gone, what would I do to hide certain views? In CRM 4 public views can not be hidden, these pages give a way it can be done.

CRM 4.0 Email Router Mailbox not deleting items
We are using the Email Router for Dynamics 4.0. An account and mailbox has been setup called CRM Mail. This accounts mailbox has grown to 9 Gig.

Do these messages need to remain in the Inbox or can we safely delete them? Are they supposed to be automatically deleted? Also, why are all these emails showing up? Thanks all! The emails in the forward mailbox should be deleted automatically after being processed by the router. ...

Rounding Problem #4
I'm performing a golf handicapping sheet and within that sheet I'm using an average of previous scores such as; In cell AM33 I have =average(q33,w33,ac33,ai33)-35 This value ends up as 11.5... My rounding goes up to 12 which is what I desire but... when I utilize that cell value to subtract 2 other values the sheet does not round properly..? Example: In cell AO33 I insert 48 In cell AP33 I insert =sum(AO33-AM33) Looking at AM33 as a 12 and looking at AO33 as 48, I expected the result to be 36 but it shows 37..!

8 bytes vs. 4 bytes Struct member alignment
Hi, I have an VC++ application which I have to compile on **4 bytes Struct member alignment** in order to read correctly a binary file and pass the data to a complex structure.

To MS Support: Budget report bug in Money 2005 (and 2003,4)
Part of our income comes from investments and we have several brokerage accounts which are setup in Money 2002 as investment accounts with a linked cash account. Dividend, interest and capital gains income comes into these accounts and is then transferred to a separate checking account to pay our living expenses. Thus the investment accounts must be included in our budget. Money's budget feature is outstanding and crucial to our financial health. I have tried to upgrade from Money 2002 but am unable to because Money 2003, 2004 and 2005 have a show stopper bug that destroys al...

Forgotten Password #4
I need to gain access to my Money 2001 that I have on an old computer but have forgotten the password that I used back then. Is there any way I can find out what my password was? Does anyone know what file the password is kept in and if it's readable? Any help will be appreciated since it's very important that I retrieve some information from that year which I did not carry forward to the more current years. Thank you! You might be able to find a company which provides software to get the password out for you. I know of three, but there are probably others.

More than 4 gigs - PAE
Am trying to figure out if. . . I have a server with more than 4 gigs of memory (We'll just say 5 gigs) running Windows Enterprise, and I throw the PAE switch, will the OS take the remaining 2 gigs of memory (After Exchange gets it's 3?) See With Windows 2003 SP1, we can now throw the PAE switch without harm to the databases, I'm just wondering if it's worth having the extra memory to the OS available.

check decimal and if numeric
I have an unbound textbox, txtAmount. I want to make sure that user enters only two decimal places, and that the input is numeric. I tried using InputMask 99999999.99 which works for positive numbers, but that mask won't allow the minus sign (or plus sign) to be used. So, how can I allow input of a negative number? Currently, if TransactType is "Payment", it takes the value in Amount * -1 (if existing Amount > 0), so that effectively makes it a negative. But, a TransactType of "Adjustment" could be either negative or positive. I could make a TransactType of "...
