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.

...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

anybody know if I can install the Upgrade version as a standalone, or
must I find an earlier version somewhere? Thanks.

Can you upgrade from Office 2004 for Mac to Office 2007 for PC for the
lower upgrade price? Or do I have to basically start over and buy
Office again for $250 - $300 or whatever it is, if I switch from Mac
and buy a new PC?
(I have Office '04 on my iMac. I'm weighing buying either a new iMac
or a new Dell. The cost of buying Office again makes the inferior-but-
cheaper Dell almost as expensive as a new Mac, alas.)
