Upgrade to MS Office for Mac from Windows Office for PC?
Is it possible to upgrade to MS Office for Mac from Windows Office for
PC? My sister-in-law just made the move to a mac. Sheowned Office on
her old Gateway Laptop, can she upgrade to the Mac from her PC version?
Nope, no cross-upgrade discount.
But if she bought a new Mac, there is a current discount that she may
qualify for, which is even better--check the Office Bonus link at Apple:

Hello, I have created a data query in Excel using DATA - IMPORT EXTERNAL DATA
- NEW DATABASE QUERY and then selecting Access and browsing to an query
within an Access database. This query returns all data into excel, but I
would like to limit the criteria based on what a user has typed into a cell
in the Excel workbook. I thought this could be accomplished by clicking DATA
- IMPORT EXTERNAL DATA then PARAMETERS but the PARAMETERS option is grayed
out. I can select EDIT CURRENT QUERY, but this just brings me into the

I have a number of Access queries linked and displayed in an Excel workbook
by way of Data, Import External Data, Import Data. Some of the criteria and
select statements in the queries use the keyword "Like" (e.g. Like "*Smith"
to pull up all names ending in "Smith"). These statements seem to be
completely ignored by Excel so that records I should see are not appearing in
the workbook. This worked fine in versions 97 (from which we've just
upgraded) so is this a version 2003 bug? If so, is there a fix?
...Change 2007 excel Autofilter back to 2003?
Does anyone know if there is a way to change excel's 2007 autofilter
functionality back to like excel 2003 autoflilter use to work? I need to
quickly bring up like values and compare other columns based upon the
filtered values and the extra clicking of the check boxes is driving me nuts!
If it helps any (and if you haven't thought about it yet), you can click the
"(Select All)" entry twice to remove your current selections.

I was wondering if I could get some help on how to create a CVP graph in
A cost volume profit shows how costs, revenues, and profits vary with volume

add up to total costs.
One way to show this is to make a break-even chart. Put unit sales (number
of items sold) in the first column, fixed costs in the second (which are a
constant), variable costs in the third column (these are typically a
straight line through zero), and in the fourth insert formulas that sum

Have there been any upgrades to MS Money's budget tools from 2003 to 2004? I was very un impressed with how limited 2003 was as far as setting up a budget. I'm considering upgrading to 2004, but only if the budget tools are better.
If that's your criteria, don't upgrade. See

changes in the last several versions.

changed the RowSource query to SELECT distinct Col1, the combo-box displays

Any clue what I could be doing wrong?
