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
2004 which is not a ra...Outlook needs Outlook Express to work
I've installed my Outlook 2002 on my new Vista PC (I had Xp before). Now when
I start Outlook it says "requires Outlook Express 4.01 or greater". I've been
looking for Outlook Express to download and install but no joy. No CD came
with my new Vista PC. Any ideas, short of buying a more modern Outlook?
Vista doesn't actually support Outlook 2002 or older. Outlook Express is
part of Internet Explorer but with the advent of Vista, it was switched to
Windows Mail. There is no more Outlook Express.

Suddenly I am getting the following message when I try to close a workbook:

The mysterious thing is that it does not happen consistently and that, after
I click OK after the above message, I can still save the file.
What might be the cause of this error message and can the "invalid
reference" be tracked down using one of the utility add-ins such as J.
