When the AfterUpdate event of my Status field is triggered, I update several
other tables with dependent data. What happens if someone hits ESC twice to
Undo the record? Is there some way I can know that this happened? Then I
could roll back any updates. Btw, the Form_AfterUpdate event doesn't seem
applicable since one of the things I do is set a DateCompleted field on the
form itself. Any ideas or suggestions would be welcome.
You could trap the keystrokes, but it might be a better idea to use the
AfterUpdate event of the form itself to update the other tables. That event

you may have to restart your computer.'

doesn't recognize the name and there are "no suggestions".

is if we type it last name first (ie, Gates, Bill). This

audit results going back for about 5 years plus a load more information

The idea would be that the user could select a month or a 12 mnth date range
that would produce data that could then be used to populate a number of excel

"Plamen Ratchev" wr...Auto-format in Microsoft Excel.
Each time i try to enter a number range, for example, 8-
10, in Excel, it constantly re-formats it to a date. If I
change the formatting to "General" it turns it into a
random number, usually 38209. I would like to turn off
ALL auto-formatting, but that's probably asking too
much. How do I disable this frustrating feature?
When you enter "8-10" in a cell, that's not strictly a number but Excel
thinks you mean a date so converts it as such.
A date is a number and in your example the number 38209 represents August 10

part of Internet Explorer but with the advent of Vista, it was switched to

I'm using Exchange 2003 and Outlook. Some clients receive my messages as a

the messages look fine but there are a few that always do this. I'm

idea what I should look for?
A couple things I forgot to mention - the clients are using Exchange 5.5 and

original email. If we send them a message with just text and no attachment
