How did I break the cell display limit? #2

If there is anyone out there who can help with this, I would be most
most grateful. Here's the facts:

- I'm working in a MS Excel worksheet.

- I am aware of Excel's 255-character-per-cell display limit. (As 
understand it, each cell can hold up to 32,000 characters, but wil
only display/print 255 characters.) This is a major pain in th
petunski, as most of my cells contain more than 255 characters
Therefore, most of my spreadsheet shows cells that look like this
###############. I have to look in the formula bar to see the actua
contents of each cell.

- In cell C35, I have 1,055 characters - all of which are displayed i
the cell. This particular cell also prints the actual contents of th
cell. This is the only cell that behaves in this manner.

- I have checked the properties of my cells under FORMAT > CELLS, an
the properties are identical for all the cells.

Does anyone have any idea why this particular cell is being s
generous? It would be marvelous if I could get the rest of the cells t
behave the same way, but I can find nothing in the online help t
indicate that this is possible. I have Googled around for an answer
and I find nothing.

I'm tearing my hair out over this. Can anyone help? Thanks in advanc
for any advice.

Can you insert a picture into a specific cell?
Or do they only "float" on the page. Marc They float over the worksheet, but you can adjust the size so that it seems to fit a cell exactly. If you insert a picture, you can hold the alt-key down while you move/resize the picture. When it gets close to the edge of a cell, it'll snap-to that edge.

Problems with creating a newsletter
I chose the form "Newsletter - email". I have created a 3 page newsletter. Now, I have NO IDEA how to send it out as an email. I do not want to send it as an attachment. I cannot figure out which "save as" format or what I need to do so that i can email this newsletter. Is there a website that goes through how to do this? Am I correct when I say that it has to be html in order for me to send it as email? That is not one of the options. Any help you give me would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Markis ...

Changing SQL Server for CRM 1.2

Override Limit
Customer credit limit override approval workflow Hello all, Just wondering if/where we can have the override credit limit just in effect on either the Order or Invoice and not both.

Steps to Share Outlook on 2 different drives
This is a problem created by a dual boot of XPPSP2 on one drive C:\ and Vista on another drive E:\ that I use to format for new builds of Vista on the same box.

Single click selects multiple cells

Receiving Transaction Entry #2

I went to the proper screen to over-ride the calculated tax and the system told me that I couldn't do that because I had not filled in all the BOLD, RED areas.

Associating Multiple Existing Contacts to an Account, Until CRM 2.x
I have racked my pea-sized brain for endless days for a way to associate multiple existing contacts (or accounts) to an account. My client has accounts that have many contacts (or accounts) involved at different stages of acquiring a new account. The logical method would be to add a custom attribute with lookup functionality into the existing CRM contact or account objects but this is not possible with CRM 1.x. The resulting UI would allow an end user to associate different contacts (or accounts) to an account. Example: Account: ABC - AccountPhysician: (existing account or con...

Referencing cells across sheets
