Symbols on the keyboard are not the symbols on the screen....
When I'm in Excel I must be hitting a key combination that creates havoc for
me. Everything will be working fine and out of nowhere when I try to choose
a symbol using the Shift + any number key....I get some wierd symbol instead
of the symbol on the keyboard. In order to stop this I have to close out of
Excel completely and come back in and it's fine.
Is there Any way I could undo what I did without closing Excel?
AND Do you know what I did to cause it to do that?
I had the same problem because I use two different language "French & English"...Stick with Novell or move to Microsoft?
My school district has been using Novell products from some time. We
have 4 Netware 6.5 file servers, Bordermanager with integrate content
filter (BESS), and Groupwise 7. We have about 1300 workstations on
campus, about 3/4 Windows based and 1/4 Mac. For a variety of reasons,
over the next 2 months we will be assessing whether we stay with Novell
products or migrate to Microsoft products for our back office needs. A
few of the reasons for us even to contemplate this move:

I developed a bar chart diagram with 10 bars in it. I covered these bars
with Block Arrows that I copied from AutoShapes. The chart looks fine and can
be printed correctly. But when I tried to copy the chart to a WORD document
or to my email, the last 2 bars will show up without the Block Arrows. The
front 8 bars are fine. Is there anything that I can do to correct this error?
...Reading keyboard's key names (Internalization)
Hi all! I'm trying to make my little app "international-aware" and I'm
using the GetKeyNameText() function to retrieve the name of a key. The
function works good in getting the key names based on the current
keyboard layout. The reason I'm doing this is because users of my app
will be able to access the settings to customize the program's hotkeys,
so I would like to display these in the user's language.
For example, the following key name retrieval work:
GetKeyText(vbKeyControl ) -> "Ctrl"
GetKeyText(vbKeyShift ) -> "...Remove Arrow

I can't backspace or type any letters or numerals in a word document but the
keyboard works fine in excel, etc.
If this happens in new, blank documents, exit Word and rename the normal.dot

search for it in Windows; be sure to search hidden files and folders.
If this happens with a particular document, only, it might be protected or

WITHOUT having to Tab, Enter or hit one of the arrow keys?
In a word, no. Excel goes into Enter (or Edit) mode, and stays there until
one of those keys (or cell click in some situations) is used. Event macros
do not fire. You could put together your own UserForm (instead of typing
directly into the worksheet), and the text boxes could be made to behave as

Is there any way to stop this button from functioning?
I'm sure there are many people who do need the ability to type over what has
been written (if that needs to be done, just select the text you want to go,
and press Delete). Its just a constant annoyance finding you've accidentally
hit the Insert key and then typed over a few characters, having to undo,
press Insert again, continue, etc.

Check your scroll lock key to see if it is engaged. If so, this will cause
the arrow keys to scroll instead of moving from cell to cell.

I open the Find and replace Dialogue Box using CTRL+F and then enter
the value I am looking for. Excel moves the cursor to the cell in
question with the found value.
Is there anyway to then use the keyboard to move from the dialogue
into the actual worksheet, without having to mouse click back into
open file? It seems there has to be some type of way to use the
keyboard to move from the Find Dialogue box without using the mouse.

(Sorry for the double-post, first post went to wrong group)
I am having trouble implementing drop-down lists in a way that is easy for a
user who is using a keyboard rather than a mouse.
Standard combo-box controls on forms are great - a user can tab into the
field, type the first few letters of the value they want, then tab on out to
the next field in the form. Maybe 5% of the time an experienced user might
need to actually drop-down the list to find the value they want.
I want this same ability in a worksheet cell.

No, not if you're using a protected form and dropdown formfields.
