No but you can stop them staying there.

e-mail and use it again and again.
can anyone help
If you have Word installed and it's the same version as Outlook (both 2003,
for example), you can do a mail merge between the two. This would allow you
to set up the text the way you want it to, and you can save the document for
future use. Look at the following page for further information:

Hi - I received a message with a "return Receipt" and
said yes not remebering that I was not at my home
computer. My ISP does not allow remote sending - so now
everytime I hit send/receive it tries to send the
receipt. There is nothing in the outbox or send box.
Any ideas on how to get rid of this?
...Multiple domains on one Exchange server / All but one domain shows up as spam #2
I am sorry if this is on the board somewhere but I have been searching

I have multiple domains setup on my exchange server. Lets say abc.com,
def.com, and hij.com. We only send email with @abc.com but can receive
from any domain name. Recently we merged with another company and we
brought back their email to our server, lets say xyz.com. Now I

For the date use

you probably have to reformat the first to

I'm trying to copy the result of a "check box form field" into another check

the ref + F9 command for the text form field. Is this possible? Thanks.

I put a number into a cell click on the next cell and the first cell reverts
to 0. If I format to number with 2 decimal places it will be ok but when I
try to take out decimal places it goes back to zero,
You haven't said what number you are trying to put into the cell, but I
suspect that the number is less than 0.5.
A quick test shows that if you set the cell to no decimal places then enter
a number less than 0.5 it is displayed 'rounded down' so it will show as
zero, if it's 0.5 or above it displays as 1.
If you need to put numbers less than 0.5 into youe c...can I snap wrap points to a text box
rather than having to add individual wrap points to the edge of a frame,
which is never as accurate anyway, can they be set to 'snap' to a frame (eg
the ellipse) so that they are perfectly inline, (and which would of course be
a lot quicker)?
Edit points will not snap. There are options for edit points, select a point,
right click. If you hold down control, the cursor will turn into an x, you can
delete a point with a click.
Truly a good draw program would be preferable.

&q...Format for credit card numbers
I've tried a custom format for entering credit card numbers (four groups
of four digits, separated by dashes: xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx.
I have tried to use ####-####-####-#### and 0000-0000-0000-0000 but
each of these causes the last digit to change to zero. So if I enter
5415779800902512 I get 5415-7798-0090-2510.
Anybody already solved this problem?

Is there a way to set the default text height for a new comment?
(I've looked through help but can't find it if it's in there.)
I assume you mean the font size? There is no text height available in Excel.
A comment has a shape property and that is what you can use to change the font size.
They didn't make it easy ...

I build custom masters by mixing two general shapes, say square and
circle together, and have text on both the shapes.
But after I drop an instance of the master into a page, I cannot
modify the text of the instance. To do so, I need to modify the text
on the master, which is non-sense for me.
How to change the text of a shape without modifying its master?
How are you doing this? By code or by the UI?
Are you grouping the shapes? If you drag two shapes to the stencil, it will
group the shapes. So instead of a square and a circle you have three shapes.

Thanks in advance.
i think you're after the COUNTIF function
with your column of letters in A1:A100
and the letter you're interested in in C1
then in D1
this will count the number of times the value in C1 occurs in your range.
