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

Suddenly I am getting the following message when I try to close a workbook:
"Your formula contains an invalid external reference to a worksheet.
Verify that the path, workbook, and range name or cell reference are
correct, and try again"
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.

After upgrading a VC7.1 project to visual studio 2005, it failed to build in
the release configuration with the follwoing error :

The debug build works fine.
The project uses MFC in a static library.
Well, after doing some research, it seems that this one is tied to the fact
that in a release configuration, _AFX_ENABLE_INLINES is defined, so inline
functions are embedded in the .obj file.
