number rounding in MS Excel
This may have been answered many times.
In MS EXCEL is there a way that it calculates all numbers to 2 decimal
digit accuracy instead of the 15 digit default?
Thanks in advance for the answer.
You can set your decimal places in your cells as 2 and then check Precision
As Displayed on the Tools / Options / Calculation page. Be careful though,
it means what it says!!

I know I asked this question before, but (sigh) I cannot find the
answer now, when I need it of course.
How can I select a series in an Excel chart (XY Scatter) using the
keyboard, not the mouse?
The issue is: I have overlapping series, so it is difficult for me to
select a series by moving the mouse cursor to a point in one series and
right-clicking it, as I normally do.
Someone once mentioned a ctrl and/or shift key combination (I think)
that would allow me to select each series explicit in round-robin
fashion. That is what I am looking for again.
More generally, how could I have found...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.
I want to take my Outlook 2003 in box and folders on two different drives on
one box and combine them so that all the emails go to one account and all
the folders can be shared or used on each drive.
I want to do the same with Outlook Express as well, and since this is an
*Outlook newsgroup, I'll just take what I learn here and apply it to the
..dbx folder(s) in it.
The idea is to receive email on both drives in one in one...Using mouse wheel in VB editor

I send an email to a certain receipient but don't want to use the

Is it possible that when I send to them (plain text) , that it will
choose the other account I want to use to send it? Please advise how I
set this up.
I do not believe that this can be achieved automatically through standard
use of Outlook as you need to manually specify the name of the account to
send from if different than the default.
However, it would be possible using the Outlook object model. An Addin would
need to be developed that monitored each mail item prior to sending. If the

A client of mine has Office X for Mac. I am wondering if this edition
of Excel supports SpreadSheetML. I have heard that it also support the
new Open XML formats (same as Office 11). Does anyone know if either of
these statements is accurate?
Thanks in advance,
I believe that both statements are wrong.
The XML converter for Office Next on the Mac has not yet been developed.
It's not likely to come until after the PC Office team ships their product
to retail -- until they stop CHANGING the thing :-)
My guess is that the converter won't appear until sometime...Public Folder link to Excel File
I have a user that claims that he had a shortcut to a spreadsheet "in
his public folders" at his old job. Obviously, he's an end user that
may or may not know what he's talking about.... I'm trying to figure
out the best way to accomodate him.
He basically wants an Excel file stored on a shared folder to be
available to all user as either a shortcut, or a link in the public
folders (can't post to a folder as he will be updating the sheet
regularly). When a user clicks on the shortcut/link, it would just
launch Excel and display the file.

I am using Filters in Excel 2003.
Every cell in sheet B is linked to every cell in sheet A. That way I
can alter data in B without corrupting the original data in A. I then
highlight the cells in B that I want to assign a filter to and select
Advanced Filter. I have no criteria so I do not set that. I click OK.
I then select Filter again and this time select Auto Filter. Drop
down arrows appear at the top of my columns. Great, no problems so
far, I then select from the drop down list the criteria that I want to
filter. Again no problems, my list filters correctly.

Testing a Sharepoint environment and I can easily manipulate and run the
database from Access 2007, but when I try to use Access 2003 it wants me to
save the database to a location. The Access 2003 has the compatiblity pack,
but it seems to not work when I download it.
So the question is using Sharepoint 2007 and posting the Access 2007 format
to it, can a user go to the sharepoint site and use a 2003 Access database
that has the compatibility pack and open without having to download it?

I am working on a spreadsheet for work where it will calculate commissions to

what the percentage would be, how would I write an equation for that. For
example, the equation would have to say: if say D3 was = or < than %, use
cell# whatever and then have a sum in there. The table is on another sheet in
the document so that would have to be there too.
Basically, the way that my commissions are calculated is that we have to

I can achieve the effect that I want by selecting a cell which is
outside the area that I'm trying to capture, but now that I've found
that I cannot get rid of it entirely, it is driving me nuts trying to do so.
