#### Sum Value using ALT+ENTER

```i have enter the record in the row, and inside the cell, i'm using
ALT+Enter to make more line for the record, but i would like to know
how to sum of the value in this cell??
e.g.

C1         C2          C3
R1     1           1           XD
R2     2           2           YY
R3     1                        XY
R3     2           A
R4     3           3

how can i get the value of A = 3, that is the sum of R3C1(1+2)
also, how can i put the dollar sign automatically in cell R3C1 if i'm
using "ALT+ENTER" to make more line.

```The new line character (Alt + Enter) is changing the number to a text value.
Why don't you just adjust the height of the row.  Click FORMAT in the menu,
select ROW, click HEIGHT and enter the row height value.

You can adjust where the text appears in the larger cell by clicking FORMAT,
select CELLS and then click on the ALIGNMENT tab.  Use the horizontal and
vertical text alignment options to place the text correctly within the cell.

Using icon sets with relative references

Absolute Values and Column Insertions
I've created a formula in column A that adds up some cells in column D. Ex: =sum(D3:D6). If I insert one column in front of column D, the formula changes to =sum(E3:E6). This happens even if I change the formula to =sum(\$D\$3:\$D\$6). I also tried creating a range name called TEST referring to the original \$D\$3:\$D\$6 range and the column insertion changed the TEST range definition as well.

We have certain users that we would like to use an external email address for and give access to resources in the domain.

Ideally, I would like to do this without adding 2 separate objects in AD. Is that possible?

Use query for Row Source?
I attempted to use a combo-box to look-up records on a form. The RowSource query that is generated by the wizard included 2 data fields. I wanted to show only a distinct list of the second, non-key data element (col1). When I changed the RowSource query to SELECT distinct Col1, the combo-box displays nothing. I then created a stored query with the SELECT distinct Col1. They query runs correctly, but when I put in in the RowSource, it displays nothing. Any clue what I could be doing wrong?
