theres many ways, but an easiest way would be to do a
sort. Highlight the 2 columns, click on data, then sort,
then sort by status, then by date. this should group them
all together. hope this helps...toe

I have a macro that copies a worksheet in the active workbook and puts it
into a new workbook - then formats it and deletes any buttons on the
On the first click on the button the macro works ok.
On the second click, it fails because the all assigned macros on all buttons
in the active workbook changed from "mba" to "book1!mba". Book 1 doesn't
exists (wasn't opened, wasn't saved, doesn't have the macros).
I've never experienced this problem before??
Can anyone help to solve this problem?

I am currently on an IBM X21 laptop and is running windows
98 se with office 97 pro. I recently experienced some
problems with outlook (illegal operations etc) and
reinstalled office to fix the problem but since then I
have not been able to send or recieve emails with outlook
97 and outlook express 6. I simply get an error message
saying the host can't be found (but does exist and I can
ping it successfully). Any suggestions on what I might do?
I have tried creating new accounts in windows mail and
outlook express, but I still get the same error.
Thankyou in advance!
D...nested OR in queries
I have a table that has 20 date fields for each record. I need to select any
record that has a matching date in at least one of those fields so it becomes
a huge OR in a query and I have noticed that I am limited to 9 in a query. Is
there a way to do this efficiently or will I need multiple queries to test
all 20 date fields?
If your table uses multiple date fields, the first thing you'll want to
consider is coming up with a new table!
In a spreadsheet, adding 20 date fields may be the only way to handle a
situation, but you won't get the best use of Access' features and funct...How to move MS Office without reinstalling?

soon be reinstalling an OS on the iMac and in the process, I will have to

I was considering learning Excel as an additional tool for my data analysis
Is it better to use data sets that I have previously used with SPSS and
apply the same analysis tools as in SPSS? For applying the appropriate
tools, I was considering using excel's online help.
The second option I have is to use some excel book for data analysis and
apply the techniques to data sets provided with the book.
...unable to paste Excel 2003 chart into Outlook 2003
(This was posted on "excel.charting" group.)
I have a user who's unable to paste an Excel 2003 chart into Outlook 2003
email message. In Outlook options, the checkbox is selected for "Use
Microsoft Office Word 2003 to edit e-mail messages".
When I tested this on my own computer running the same version of Office, if
the box is check, I have no problem pasting; if this box is cleared, I
cannot paste. But on his computer, it doesn't work regardless.

...How do I Remove a Split from my Comments in Excel 2003? #2
I have set my current workbook to split/freeze the first column and first 2
rows. Now, when I add a comment to the second row (in any column) my comments
are cut off if I should scroll down.
I don't ever remember the behavior before. And I don't know what I've done
to enable it but it's really annoying.
How do turn this off ?
...Filters not working in Exchange 2003
I have been trying to turn on the Recipient, Connection, and Sender filters.
I have gone to the Default SMTP Virtual Server and turned it on there without
getting an error but when I go to the Properties and add senders to block and
the hit Apply, it tells me that I must manually turn the filtering on in the
SMTP VS. I have stopped and started the Default SMTP VS but still no luck.
That is a standard dialog box, it does not check to see if it is already
enabled, have you tested the sender filtering?

The help states you can only add error bars to data series in 2D area. Is
there a way to add them to a 3D chart?
I would not have thought so. Obviously as it is not a built-in option
the only way would be a work around perhaps using dummy series.
Unfortunately you can create 3d combination charts.
Stick with the 2d view.

I have posted a cemetery survey on Excell spreadsheet. When I try to sort
the birth dates or death dates in ascending or descending order the range of
1900 dates will sort but the 1800 dates fall after the 1900 and will not
sort. Why? Is this inherit with this program?
The WinXL default dates start with 31 December 1899, so earlier "dates"
are interpreted as Text.
You can use helper columns and text functions (LEFT(),RIGHT(),MID()) to
put the Year, Month and Day in separate columns, then sort.
