this will turn you formulas into hard numbers.

I was doing a defrag and it kept stopping because of a conflict with

The site said to leave it disabled if I don't need it. It didn't say

htt...help with preview pane and "read receipts"
Hi, I'm new to Outlook administration. We run Outlook on a server wit
Exchange. Is it possible to setup Outlook on client PC's so that th
preview pane cannot be activated by individual users?
Also, can the blocking of "read receipts" by individual PC users b
prohibited within Outlook, at the server level? If not, is there an
other way to do it?
My reasoning for wanting to do the above two things is to make th
"read receipts" function work more effectively.

...Prevent Hidden Column data from being copied/pasted?
A student came up with a question that I haven't been able
to figure out yet in a recent Excel class.
They are hiding a column and protecting the worksheet in
the correct manner. They want to allow some users to
access and enter information in some cells. They do not
want the users to be able to copy and paste the
information from the hidden column. The question is how
can this be prevented?
For example, Column B is hidden. When they copy a range
such as A1:C10 and paste it to another worksheet, they are
getting the "hidden" data in Column B in B1:B10.

Question with (hopefully) an easy answer....
When you copy a cell that uses a formula referring to another cell,
for simple illustration say "=C4" it will increment based on where
you paste it. So, it will increment up to "=C5" if you paste it in
the next cell, or "=D4" if you paste below.
How can I suppress that, so that when I paste the new cell receives
"=C4" as well.

copy a whole row of formulas to be the same. I thought

But the formula in column G gives "Yes" when the cell in column F is filled
only with the formula, not a result.

Please tell us what the exact formulas in F and G are; that is not clear from your post.
What are the values involved? Are any of the columns formatted as Text before you entered the formulas?
