Category color changes when changing values.
When I copy a chart I get two identical ones. When I change the values of one
of the charts and sort the values, Excel changes the colors of the categories
to a preset order, so that the color of the biggest customer in chart 1 is
not the same as this same customer (let's say now on the third place) in

I've been trying to find a way to change the tootip info for a toolbar.
Currently, I've tried getting the toolbar CToolBarCtrl and CToolTipCtrl

would be appreciated.
If you are talking about tooltip info of a particular button on a toolbar,
change it in resource editor by double clicking on the button and changing
the text that appears at the bottom of the dialog. Text that appears before

You can use VLOOKUP but you'll have to create your own lookup table of
the unicode characters and I think you'll have to paste it onto the
same spreadsheet.... Maybe you can find a lookup table on the
internet somewhere that you can easily paste into your spreadsheet.

I have Excel 2003 (11.6355.6360) running on XP and I'm wondering if
this is a bug or not.
If you have text in the first Row and you set it to 45 degrees angled,
if you try and fill different cells with different fill colors,
sometimes the box will fill angled, othertimes straight up and down.
As a simple test, try creating a blank worksheet and make the first 3
columns 35 each in width and 100 in height. The type some text in
each of the cells - not too much. Now select all 3 cells and format
their alignment to 45 degrees. Now pick each one of the cells and
fill each with a different ...References omit formatting and return cell address

returns 2000 (unless I manually reformat the Workksheet 2 cell to Currency
Worksheet 3, A1 contains an apartment # - e.g. 4
