Sorting Alphanumeric values in a text field
I'm using Access 2003 for a database for my company. I have a field in a
table that has both text and numbers. They are part numbers, for example
21BC124. I kept the field as text because of the text with in the numbers
and didn't figure that a numeric field would alow the text. In my part
numbers table it sorts correctly (first by number then by letter then by
number again), but in my reports and queries there are a few number that sort
in the wrong place. Like this...

I want to create customized reports where a user can enter text strings, then
the program will search for all records that contain that text string and
display them. The filter functions are exclusive.

I recently did clean installs of XP and Win7 on 2 different PCs. Each PC
was loaded with Office 2007. When I ran Microsoft Update after the Office
installs, it shows I needed Office 2007 SP1, not SP2. I manually downloaded
and installed Office 2007 SP2 and then checked Windows Updates for any
needed patches. It still showed I needed Office 2007 SP1...even though I
just installed SP2.
Does anyone know how to 1) have Office SP2 show up as a needed update
instead of SP1, and 2) how to configure Windows Update to show that no SP is
needed after SP2 is installed?
Everytime I boot up my PC a small window pops up entitled "UPDATE MANAGER".
It shows two progress bars, but nothing ever happens. Why is this window
popping up every tiem I turn on the computer and how do I get it to stop?
It never used to do this, it just statred lately. Thankyou.
Because you installed something which features an update manager

I'm using Excel 2000. I have a set of merged cells A5-
E5. I have several lines
of text in the cells and I want them to wrap across the
merged cells and it is not working. All I get is the
first line of text showing and the rest is cut off. It
works if the cells are not merged, but I really need to do
it in my merged cells. Is there a way to this other than
manually resizing the height of the row?

message which I had sent.
If I mark it as unread it does not return to the previous state.

I've created a Combo Box using the Controls Wizard. In creating the

When the user views the selection options in the Combo Box, I'd like to have
the ID field hidden and only see the text values, while still storing the ID
in the appropriate column.
This is probably a second question.
Also, when the user views a form that has been populated, I'd like them to

That's the question. I have my data in Excel and the chart in Excel but not

and I want it to stay the same.
Any ideas on how to lock the chart?
Just a few ideas:
You could lock the cells that are shown in the chart.
Or you could copy the cells and paste as values (assuming formulas were used
that update when other cells change).
