I have code that creates a graphic and text boxes automatically. But
when I try add drag the text box over the graphic its is masked by the
graph and does not go "on top of it". I don't understand why because
when I manually draw a text box and drag it over the graph it shows? I
checked the properties and they are the same. WHat could be worng?

Basically I finished my account tracker, but I would rahther use a password
prevent others from openning at all, I tried the Protect>>Protect workbook,
it doesn't work.
Do a file|SaveAs (you can use the same name).
Then on that dialog
Tools|General Options|provide a password to open
I think it was:
in earlier versions (but still under the file|saveas dialog)

Quantities for Inventory Items are set-up in our database with zero decimals.
When exporting 'Inventory Purchase Receipt' information to Excel, quantities
receipt and quantities sold, greather than 1000, are shown only the first
digit in Excel, for example 4,799 is shown for 4.
Any idea how to fix it???
Sounds more likely that the file is being exported as a csv using the print
function in smartlist.

I am aware of the possibility to save an Excel document as html, but
this generates a massive amount of html-code.
The program xls2html do what I need where a link between each cell is
created via a template. This would do the trick for me, but
unfortunately this program is no longer supported and it does not
include the hyperlinks in the html-code.
Any ideas on how to update an html-document linked to an MS-Excel
document? Real time linking is not needed - just a relatively easy way
to do this every week or so to reflect price changes.

represent data points by crosses rather than those other shapes?
Double click on a series of points, and click on the Patterns tab. You can choose
any of the marker styles, including a cross, from the dropdown. To get an outline of
the shape, select None for the background color of the marker.

I am creating a line chart in Excel, and want to annotate various
movements in the line. It is a share price graph, with price against
date (and volumes on a secondary axis), and I want to explain the
significant peaks, troughs, movements etc.
Ultimately I want arrows to point to the line which are sequentially
numbered - I will have a separate table which shows the date and
narrative for each number (space is limited on the chart itself, as
I'll have about 10-15 arrows).
Rather than drawing the arrows on manually, and adding text boxes with
numbers, is there any quicker way of doing it...How can I translate text in many cells of an Excel sheet from English to Greek with VBA
