Changing how Excel INTERPRETS dates
Anybody know how to change the way Excel interprets dates? For the lif
of me I can't remember.
I don't just mean reformatting a cell. I mean if one would typ
"8/11/04" Excel would read this as November 08, 2004 and not August 11
Any hope would be much appreciated,

as numbers in access. The only way I have found to get the all the

Are you trying to combine many Publisher documents or are you trying to connect
The former can be accomplished by a simple copy/paste. Publisher will

The latter is simply inserting pages with text boxes and linking.
