Insert a column after your name column, highlight the name 
column, go to Data, Text to Columns, Delimited, select 
comma, finish.  This will give you two columns, lastname, 
firstname.  Insert a column before your lastname column. 
Move the firstname column to the new column.  Your third 
column should now be blank.  Enter in the formula 
=CONCATENATE(,A1," ",B1)in the third column. This will put 
your firstname space lastname in the third column.  Then 
delete the first two columns.  There may be an easier way 
to do this, but I know this works

When printing note card, part of the first card is missing
I am trying to print note cards that I've created in publisher 2007. Although the sizes and placement are correct, the print preview and actual print cuts a small portion of the first card off. What page setup are you using? Are you using one of the templates? In Publisher 2007 it is better to use one of the page setups that is listed under Avery or some other company. If you are using a custom print setup, when you are finished creating your card, go to File, Print, setup the page again in this dialog. -- Mary Sauer MSFT MVP ...

AR Statements not pulling in our company name & address
When we run statements through GP it is not pulling our company information to print on the statement. Everything appears to be set up properly and has worked fine in the past.

What Will Be Your Last Post?
With the impending demise of the Microsoft newsgroups, we will all soon be making our last post.

renaming of the values on the x-axis (i.e. category names)
Say I have a row of values, I select them and I create a column chart. The names of the values on the horizontal axis (i.e. the name of each category) will be, since I did not provide data for them, integers: 1, 2, 3, ... Is there a simple way to rename each category (for example, have "Costs" instead of "1" etc), without having to create cells that have those names and then recreate the chart including those cells? Thanks. You don't need to recreate the chart. Select the first charted series and look in the formula bar: =SERIES(,,Sheet1!$B$2:$B$10,1) The form...

Saving Chart Names in Excel 2007
I saved an XLS file as an XLSX file without performing a conversion. After making changes to the workbook, the chart names will not save, they just revery back to the default "Chart1", "Chart2", etc. names. I followed these steps to change the names to no avail: When you create charts, Microsoft Office Excel assigns a default name to each chart by using the following naming convention: Chart1, Chart2, and so on. However, you can change the name of each chart to make it more meaningful to you. Click the chart that you want to rename. This displays the Chart Tools, ad...

Query about Last Cell reference.
I have 12 sheets, which holds monthly information. Data exists in Column A through K, row 1 down to row 500.
