...Creating a chart with text not numbers
How do I create a chart that has text values (freshman, sophomore, junior,
senior) instead of numbers (1, 2, 3, 4)?
I have a column labeled "What is your class standing?" and below it is 166
rows where people selected "Freshman," "Sophomore," etc. I want to create a
bar chart that counts how many people selected each of the four classes.
First of all, you will have numbers to plot. The words are your category
Read how to turn a column of words like this into a histogram:

I am trying to get my text to run over to the next cell only in display not
actual value of that cell. So if A1 says, "How now brown cow.", it should
show over cells A2 and A3. However, I also need the carriage returns to be
picked up. If I use the "Wrap Text" property it only shows the sentence in
that cell. If I don't use it I get the  (brackets) in place of the carriage
Maybe you could merge those cells (A1:A3 or did you really mean A1:C1?)
But be aware that merging cells causes trouble with sorting, pasting, and lots
of other stuff.

I need to write a method that takes System.Xml.XmlDocument and Xsd Path

How can I convert XmlDocument to XmlReader?

> How can I convert XmlDocument to XmlReader?
Efficient way is to use XmlNodeReader, but that won't help with
validation. For validation you need XmlTextReader, so usual way of doing
it (not really efficient, but working one) is
XmlTextReader r = new XmlTextReader(new StringReader(xmlDoc.OuterXml));

I created a catalog using Publisher 2002. Now I need to
convert it to PDF. The problem is that when I convert if,
the pages do not appear in consecutive order (i.e., the
first page of the catalog appears with the last page).
Does anyone have a solution for this problem?
Are you producing the catalog as a saddle-stitched book? What you are
getting is printer's/press spreads, which, unless it is going on a large
format press, is probably fine for your printer. If you are printing
separate sheets to be bound by a different method, or if it is going on a
large format press, and the printe...Formatting number in Data Table
I am using Excel 2007. I have a spreadsheet that the figures can be
negative or positve. I have formatted the cells with this custom
format $#,##0;[Red]$-#,##0. On the spreadsheet the format works fine.
I created a chart from the data. I have a data table at the bottom of
the chart. The problem is that the format from the spreadsheet is not
reflected in the data table. When I click on Format Data Table, there
is no option for number formatting. There is a number formatting
option available when i click Format Axis, but this doesn't change it,
because the actual axis is Text.

I am using Excel 2002. I changed the text font color of the cell. It
displays correctly on my screen, but it prints as black text even though I
selected a pale yellow. Word 2002 prints correctly. The pale yellow prints
as a light shade of gray. Does anyone know why? Thanks

I have a pretty simple worksheet that lists the date in column A.
In column B, I have a formula that converts the date in Column A to
the proper day of week.
When I put it in a pivot table, it treats column B as an individual
date, not the proper DOW.
I attempted to copy/paste special/values into a new column, but it
doesn't change it to the DOW, it leaves it as the date.
I am trying to get Excel to permanently change the cells in column B
to say "Tuesday" instead of 4/19/07.
Does that make sense? All of the conventional answers don't seem to
work for me. Any help?
