Rav,

There is a special registry area for VBA which is read/written via
GetSettinmg and SaveSetting functions.

It is a bit restrictive, in that in can only writes to a limited part of the
registry, but it's sufficient for storing application details.

Sum
Hi, I just found this "feature" at Excel formulas today. Please, have a look at: http://danielgudang.multiply.com/journal/item/192 (in portuguese, but images show all) Let me explain: some cell C1 = sum (C2:C5) some cell D1 = sum (D2:D5) some cell E1 = sum (E2:E5) A1 = C1 - D1 - E1 B1 = C1 - (D1 + E1) A1 = B1 ??? Oh, not always! Sometimes A1 will be +0, sometimes -0. Really strange!

Embedded Excel worksheet in PowerPoint
I'm working with an embedded excel worksheet in powerponit.

I have a GIS application which uses .dbf files (not sure if they are actually Dbase files).

Text Wrap in Excel 2002
I have been having difficultly wrapping text. I merge several cells and wrap text sucessfully. However, if I go into one of the cells and add a couple of sentences and enter, my text that was wrapped perfectly is simply a string of #########'s and I can't view the text correctly by changing the row height or reformatting (even though it is all still there - as I can see in the edit box - when my cursor is on the text box). Any suggestions? Try formatting the cell as General. bdean wrote: > > I have been having difficultly wrapping text. I merge > several cells an...

EXCEL Cell Formatting: Custom or Conditional
At work I have Excel 2002 and I have some cells that I import data in from the mainframe. I have a table where there is a column for GENDER (MALE or FEMALE) that I would like to see shown as "Male" or "Female" (mixed case). Is there a way to change all upper case to mixed case using either CUSTOM formatting or CONDITIONAL formatting? I would prefer not using a macro if there is something simpler. I know that =PROPER() produces the correct result, but I don't see how I can use this unless I'm referencing another cell. I would like to be able to just change what fa...

Excel Formulas
I have a spreadsheet showing whether customers have paid their debts or not.

I eventually want to record this action on a MACRO, so that every time I run a MACRO on my accounts spreadsheet it will take the updated information of customers marked "paid" and put in a seperate spreadsheet.
