Setting series values on Excel Chart
I'm struggling very hard in getting beyond this error when trying to use VB to generate a chart from data previously inserted into the sheet.
Unable to set the Values property of the Series class.
The code works absolutely fine in XL2007 but I am having to port it back to 2003 and the inference is that its empty values that cause it to hiccup - something I cannot avoid.
My code is:
1. Retrieve selected data from database and place it at the top of the sheet
2. Add The Chart
3. Iterate through the data (amount can be variable depending upon user inputs)

I am currently troubleshooting slow logon times for a client with computer
infrastructure spread across the globe. Before I start invesagating I want to
create a baseline for logon times.
I have modified the clients logon script to record when it starts and when
it ends. I am using the computers tick count to record how long the computer
has been on, but realize that there is a space of time between the user
authenicating to the computer (control-alt-delete) and when the logon script
starts, if the customer turns his computer on and then leave for an extended

I have a form with a field which pulls through and concentenates 2 fields
called [ContactFirstname] and [ContactLastName]from my table
There are however some customers for whom I do not have names and therefore
instead I would like Sir/Madam to appear in the field in the form
I think I have seen this done somewhere using ELSE? but can't find it
Any help/ideas gratefully received
Perhaps something like this:
Nz(Trim([ContactFirstname] & " " + [ContactLastName]), "Sir/Madam")

Hi, recently i encountered this problem on my PC. When i press the ON button, the monitor shows the normal starting up image for only 1 second and then it went black. Then, because my computer has a CPU FAN error (probably because the starting speed of my fan is a little slow), it would beep 3times and prompt me to press F1. During this time, the image would appear on the monitor for 1sec and then, becomes black again. Then, as it loads and enters window, it will flash yet again and i can see the cursor of my mouse at the center of the screen for that 1 second.

An application should allow you to specify display name for sender. Does it
send via SMTP or MAPI?

Please re...Save As using contents of Cell in Name
Can someone help with code that changes the "save As" file name to
combination of the original File Name + the contents of a cell, an
saves file in same folder as the original.
E.G. Original File Name= Timesheet
Cells B1= Location
Cell C1 = Date in format 3-5-2004
Cell A1 = concatenate(B1,C1)
Fle Name will therefore be "Timesheet Location 3-5-2004"
The other problem is with the date. When concatenating, how do I forma
the date to avoid it looking like "Location 38051"

You can do it by putting the following VBA macro in your sheet:

My query is showing me strange values from whem loading a value from a form.
It's very strange because if you have a form named FormA and inside a field
named Field1 and if the field has a default value of 2 and if you run it.
Then if you'll make a query with any table or query and put this in the
column: Test:([forms]![FormA]![Field1]) your result will be 2, tha same as
the the Form Field.
My problem is that my query instead of showing me the value of 2 is showing
another thing very strange, such as wild characters or value that has nothing
to do with it.
