Auto-format in Microsoft Excel.
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

I am having problems with my standard Document/View application with Print
If I choose only to have one page displayed, it works fine. If I choose 2
pages to be displayed side by side, my OnPrint() function gets called over
and over as follows:
OnPrint (pInfo->m_nCurPage = = 1)
OnPrint (pInfo->m_nCurPage = = 2)
OnPrint (pInfo->m_nCurPage = = 1)
OnPrint (pInfo->m_nCurPage = = 2)
OnPrint (pInfo->m_nCurPage = = 1)
OnPrint (pInfo->m_nCurPage = = 2)
Again and again, up to 11 times. My printing code isn't (yet) the fastest
on the planet so this takes agessssss.
