Documents that you opened by double-clicking their icon will not show in the 
list. Only those that you opened from within Excel.

Kind regards,

Embedded pictures won't display
Ever since I upgraded to outlook 2003, some embedded pictures in E-mails I receive won't show up. All I see is an outline where the picture would be and an X in upper left or right corner. I know outlook blocks some file attachments by default and I've turned that stupid feature off. Still, though, I don't seem to be able to see those embedded pictures. Does anyone have some ideas on how to fix this or is this just microsoft's way of playing big brother and treating us like children by protecting us from potentially harmful content? ...

Need control to not display its data under certain circumstances
I have a form that saves "99" for a particular field if that field is left blank (which for us means that we tried, but weren't able to collect that information). However, when I load that form for a pre-existing record, I would like these fields to not show the 99, but rather to appear empty. Is there a way to do that through the control properties? Meaning, is there a way to not display the saved value for a particular control if the data saved for it was a 99? Thanks for your help. Try conditional formatting. Create a condition that says, if the value of the control = 99, ...

displaying embedded image in unboud form
I've a table (cust) with a OLE Object field (flag) containing (small) embedded bitmap images. These images display fine in a form bound to the table.

I've tried the image control, bound and unbound objects on the unbound form. I cannot find how to configure the settings of either of those to display the embedded picture. Please do not answer with solutions with linked images. I kno...

Excel Chart Display Order
I typically have multiple charts stacked within a worksheet for quick comparison purposes; in Excel 2003 I simply clicked on part of the stacked chart I wanted to view, and this chart was displayed in its entirety. In Excel 2007, viewing a particular chart within a stack requires that I right-click, and then select "Bring to Front." Simply clicking the chart I want to view does not display it. Is there a less-time consuming way to do this, or am I just a cranky old man saying, "back in my day...." A lot of us were cranky about that one. Makes no sense. You could te...

How do I get a chart to only display the dates in my table?
I am trying to graph a large group of data. It is a series of dates (not all consecutive) - with the time it takes to do a task on each of the dates. When I graph it - it fills in all the "missing" dates. For instance lets say a set of data would be: Date: 12-1-08 12-5-08 12-6-08 12-6-08 12-12-08 Time: .5 .34 .93 1.2 .25 On my graph it would put a date for every date between 12-1 and 12-12 even if there is no data. Is there any way to have Excel graph only the dates that have data? Change the axis from t...

XY Scatter Chart with X-axis displays the Category Name

You've described a line chart. Line charts can use arbitrary labels as X values, while an XY chart requires numeric values. In either type of chart, the series formatting can be the same (e.g., XY charts with lines connecting the points and Line charts with no lines).

Displaying all data when using a combo box

How can I set each combo box to work independently and/or together to get the desired results? Is there a way I could add something like an "all" field to both?
