Why does Excel sometimes ask me if I want to save my spreadhseet even
though I haven't made any changes?
For example, I just brought it up, made no changes, did nothing, and
when I close it out I'm asked if I want to save.
Never understood that.
Some functions are "volatile" and force a recalculation upon opening the
workbook. These commands include TODAY(), NOW(), AREAS() and some others I
can't think of right now. Once the workbook is recalced, Excel assumes that
it has changed, even if you didn't really change anything.

Searched but couldn't see this discussed.
I have a form with 5 tabs.
Data can be loaded three ways, manually entered, imported from a text file,
and imported from a Word template.
On one of the tabs (the second) when the user enters information such as a
social sec. number (SSN) that matches a file already in the system, a flag
goes off and alerts the user. Works fine.
On the import functions, the data is loaded and appears correctly, but when
the user moves to the second tab where the SSN number appears, it does not
set off the flag when the page opens.

As posted before, I never got my July/August statement from my bank.
I know my statement is up to date, and when I tried to balance it with
september, it left me with 200 bucks in bank charges as a descrepency
because the starting/ending balance was different.
My bank charges me 5.00 for each statement I need because they don't
offer it on their webpage. My question is this: Do I have any other
option to fix my account/balancing problem besides paying 10 dollars
for old statements? Would reinstalling money and starting a new money

With the cached mode a copy of the mailbox is stored locally. Does this mean
that a user can go to another user's cached copy and open/read it?
Each of my users has to be a local administrator because of a records
management system we use, so each person's "private" folders are mapped to a
shared network drive where security settings restrict access. If a local
administrator would have access to the cached copies of mailboxes I would
have to manually change the storage location.
If I disable the cached mode what, if any, functionality do I lose?

Also the cashbook balance is not re-calculated (recon screen) when "Incl

We can update the balance in Cashbook Master table (CM00100) in SQL but this

I recorded a macro to create a bar chart - I checked the checkbox to add the
values. Stopped recording and showed me the chart with the values. If I run
the macro again, it does not display the value. What is the code I need to
always display the value?
After you create the chart, turn on the macro recorder again
Select the chart, and choose Chart>Chart Options
On the Data Labels tab, check Values
Turn off the macro recorder
In the recorded code, you'll see a line similar to this:

Can we, in the CRM forms, format dates to read into the “15 Aug 2005”

supports one language. But aside from using a picklist to specify "USD",

Why isn't this working?
I have a form which has a text box for an attribute of type DATE. This
attribute, foo, is normally null when the form is loaded. I tried
setting the default value for the text box to "Date()" but it doesn't
show up (i'm thinking it's because I'm actually running a join query
to generate the record for the form so the form never gets the
opportunity to display the default value for foo since it thinks it's
supposed to be null, the result from the query)
So I added some code like this:
Private Sub Form_Open(Cancel As Integer)

I have a spreadsheet that looks at individuals and the amount they paid
within a certain year for healthcare expenditures. Based upon this level of
expenditure, I would like Excel to spit out the Category that the individual
falls into. Here is what the table for looking up the category looks like:
A B C
Category Min Max

01 $20 $165

If you add a button from the Forms toolbar, you'll see this option.
