How to turn off automatic resizing of the view to fit selected obj
When I select objects that partially fall outsize the current window (becasue
I have zoomed in on a particular detail), PPT automatically resizes my view.
This makes drawing/editingn of small objects in a larger drawing tedious and
time consuming. In past versions of PPT this did not happen.
How can I turn-off this automatic resizing of the zoom factorview ?
PPT 2007, right? Apply SP2 for Office 2007. That will fix it.

I want to be able to add months or years to a date.
For example 25/4/05 + 9 months
25/4/05 + 15 years.
I am using Excel 2000.
The standard way is:
to add 9 months. For 15 years try:

I have Office 2007 so obviously Outlook 2007 and Excel 2007.
I have made up a newbie's Excel spreadsheet for my business. One thing to
open that has my entire financial year's data in it and my car logbook. One
thing I am going to add to it is parts. I want to know when parts need to be
re-ordered so will set a level where I want Excel to show up basically
something like a "reorder now" warning. However, I am often in a hurry,
record the event and don't look at the outcome until I have some time, late
at night. At that time, reordering becomes a nightmare.

When copying a Word document (containing indented and numbered paragraphs and
bullet points into an email, the left alignment of the document loses its
justification. How can this be fixed?
If the formatting is important, send the document as an attachment.
You have no control over how the recipient sees the email.
If you are concerned that the recipient might not have Word, use one of the
free pdf converters to convert the document into a .pdf file.
Hope this helps,

With Vc6.0, if source or resource is modified, it doesn't re-compile
the changed file. the output exe file is older version. Only after
switching between debug and release, the modified result is showed in
the exe file.
I have tried several other project and reinstall vc, the problem above
occurs only in this project. I guess this project setting is error.
may anyone offer suggestion on this?
I would begin with recompiling all. It should clean all files from
Debug/Release folders. It should work automatically the way you want it.

...Creating an Excel table from Access
I have an Access database which I use to log downtime for systems. I have a

Down the left side of the report need to go the names of the services, with
the days (numerically like: 1, 2, 3 .. 29, 30 etc) across the top. Then I
need to count the number of times each service was down on a give day, and
insert that information into the necessary cell - so if intranet services
had been down twice on 16th March, for example, there would be a 2 in column

Hi, I'm trying to create a random sample using the Data
Analysis tool in Excell. The problem I'm having is that I

want all the observations in the sample to be unique. How
do I do this without manually deleting the repeat entries
on the output worksheet?
next to the entries, put in the formula
then drag fill down the column.
Sort the data and this column with this column as the key.
Then take the top "n" items.
