Excel not Access
I have designed an Access database that holds records relating to my stores
audit results going back for about 5 years plus a load more information
relating to these stores. This was used to produe a pack once a month,
however a change in senior management means that I have got to shelve this
and prodce a similar pack in Excel.
The idea would be that the user could select a month or a 12 mnth date range
that would produce data that could then be used to populate a number of excel
templates that have been designed. Having not used excel for years I would be
grateful for any suggestion...How to keep format when importing Excel into SQL.

"Plamen Ratchev" wr...Auto-format in Microsoft Excel.
Each time i try to enter a number range, for example, 8-
10, in Excel, it constantly re-formats it to a date. If I
change the formatting to "General" it turns it into a
random number, usually 38209. I would like to turn off
ALL auto-formatting, but that's probably asking too
much. How do I disable this frustrating feature?
When you enter "8-10" in a cell, that's not strictly a number but Excel
thinks you mean a date so converts it as such.
A date is a number and in your example the number 38209 represents August 10

Hi, I'm using Word as my e-mail editor in Outlook 2003 and want to change
the default Style for e-mails from 'Normal' to 'Normal (Web)'.
The problem is that new e-mails and replies in HTML format use the 'Normal'
Microsoft Word 'Style', and this has no gap after paragraphs. The upshot of
this is that when sending an e-mail, I have to press return twice to create
a gap, but when the recipient views this, their software shows it as four
gaps (the extra carriage return I typed + their correctly viewed HTML
carriage return after each line).
E.g. I type this:

I am using Word 2007 and have a problem with grammar and punctuation errors.
I deliberately put two spaces between words, do not put space after a comma,
write long sentences and finish a sentence without a verb but the green

with that. In Word Options > Proofing, "Mark grammar errors as you type" is
selected. I changed that selection and tried again but it still did not work.
I used different languages as default language but no change.

Auto Complete or Auto Correct?
Auto complete or "pick from list" is based on what you have entered in
contiguous cells above where you are now entering data.
There is no list saved anywhere that you can edit.
Auto Correct list is added to one by one AFAIK.
