Quirky recent file list #2


I do tend to open from Windows Explore more then File>Open.  But I am
saving the file.

It's more that it is annoying when I close a file by accident and don't
quite remember where it got saved on the server.

Well, I guess you weren't the only one who wanted this behaviour 
changed. <g>

If/when you upgrade to a newer version of Excel, the MRU list will 
include files opened through Windows Explorer.

Publisher file made in Publisher 2007 won't open in 2007

List Running Horizontally-Pivot Table Possible?
I just had a customer ask this one and I'm not so sure about it. 1) The customer has setup a list of information that is running horizontally instead of the typical list running vertically. 2) I just taught him how to do pivot tables and he wants to generate a pivot table with his "horizontal" list. 3) I know he can copy and paste special and use the Transpose feature to change the list from horizontally oriented to vertically oriented. 4) the question is: can he leave the table in its original orientation and still generate Pivot tables?

Thread Synchronization #2
Hi, I have a shared resource, say a file which is to be accessed between multiple threads. There are say 20 Read threads and 1 Write thread. When the Write thread is writing into the file, the Read threads should be blocked, and when even 1 read thread reads, the Write thread should be blocked. The Read threads can read simultaneously, but only say 5 at a time. What kind of synchronization mechanism can I use for this? TIA, Sucharit You can create a mutex a adquire it when a read operation start, check it before start any write operation. You will need another mutex ...

Unicode "private use" glyphs in Powerpoint and Word 2008 #2

He has some .ppt files with font glyphs in from a Unicode .ttf font (a specific purpose font for showing the LCD display characters on a piece of monitoring equipment). When we bring the font and .ppt over to the Mac, the glyphs from the normal ASCII range come over into Powerpoint 2008 fine, but the glyphs from the "private use" range from F000 upwards a way don't transfer. In Powerpoint they show as spac...

using dates Part 2
Karl was great in helping me get to this point with dates, now I'm wondering if we can take it 1 step further? For Activity Dates prior to 2/1/2007 they are using a normal reporting year and the formulas below take care of Activity dates >2/1/2007? So for example prior to 2/1/2007 1/1/2006 would have a B_Qtr of 2006-1 1) B_Qtr - 2011-1 --- Format(DateAdd("m",11,[ActivityDate]), "yyyy - q") 2) Year - 2011 ---- Year(DateAdd("m",11,[ActivityDate])) 3) Qtr - Q1 ---- Format(DateAdd("m",11,[ActivityDate]), "q") -- Than...

Publisher 2000? #2
Is there a place where I can still get version 2000? I've been looking, but all I can find are updates and the 2007 trial. My computer can't run 2007. *If* if can be had, try something like eBay.

The first two workbooks are identically formatted. How can I do this? Many thanks to all in the forum who have helped in the past. If the data is in exactly the same position in the two worksheets you could copy/paste one's data to a new worksheet and then copy the second's, doing an Edit, Paste Special, Subtract on top of the first's data.

List folders to file
Hi Does anyone have a macro that would list all the folders (with path) and subfolders to an excel sheet but not the files? Thanks Shona Shona- There's a function called CELL() that should return your filename (or any of a number of parameters) but I can't get it to work properly on my machine, so I can't make it work for you. The syntax is =CELL("filename") which ought to return the path and filename of the current file, and which you could then trim down to show just the path. Can anyone provide some guidance here?
