No but you can stop them staying there.

I would like to send the same e-mail to many differnet people with
one or two fields changed (for example the name of recipient and the
date).How canthis be done?? I would also like to be able to save the
e-mail and use it again and again.
can anyone help
If you have Word installed and it's the same version as Outlook (both 2003,
for example), you can do a mail merge between the two. This would allow you
to set up the text the way you want it to, and you can save the document for
future use. Look at the following page for further information:

For lngRow = 1 To Cells(Rows.Count, "B").End(xlUp).Row
If Not IsNumeric(Range("B" & lngRow)) Then
Range("A" & lngRow).Value = Range("B" & lngRow).Text
Range("B" & lngRow).Value = ""
...why does sorting change a scatter plot graph?
Why does the way a spread sheet is sorted change the look of a scatter plot
graph??? the graph is just a plot of two points, (X, Y) and these two points
are definded by two collumns for a given row. The two collumns don't change,
and the row all stays together, so why does it change where points are
plotted out on the graph when you re-sort it?
Usually, for an XY (Scatter) chart, with values of X in a column and
corresponding values of Y in an adjacent column, for three or more points,
Excel assumes (correctly) "Series in Columns."

Hi, I have this little issue. I want to change the put items on promotion
using the price wizard using HQ. Unfortunately if I have stores who has
differents prices for a same item the wizard do not make the proper change
becuase it use the price already stored in the master table. Does anyone saw
this issue before? Who was solved?. Thks in advance for your help. Rgds
The easiest way to look after this is to not change any data on the ITEM in
HQ, but to simply do the worksheet for altering the sale price and then send
it to the respective stores.

After spending a lot of time to customize a toolbar in Excel 2003, it disappears when opening up another file, or starting the app again. I repeatedly change it, save it as XLB, XLT, save multiple copies in every possible location...but the damn thing always defaults to its own toolbar settings. This makes toolbars almost useless.

you probably have to reformat the first to

I put a number into a cell click on the next cell and the first cell reverts

You haven't said what number you are trying to put into the cell, but I
suspect that the number is less than 0.5.
A quick test shows that if you set the cell to no decimal places then enter
a number less than 0.5 it is displayed 'rounded down' so it will show as
zero, if it's 0.5 or above it displays as 1.
If you need to put numbers less than 0.5 into youe c...Accommodating for empty cells in this formula?
I have a formula in cell H21, for example, reads like this:
is there a way to adjust the formula so that an empty cell in G21 doesn't

Just to give a similar example, this formula =SUMIF(A1:A9,"<>0") adjusts for
any and all empty cells in A2 to A9. It no longer matters if any of the
cells are empty, the formula correctly gives the correct addition of A1
plust a sum of everything between A2 to A10 without any #VALUE! results.

Hi for some reason I now have to save my work for any formlas etc to change
when I update a worsheet, how can I stop this as it is a pain and sometimes
I need to do changes to see how they work before saving the work.
Click on Tools | Options | Calculation tab and set to Automatic
calculation, as it is probably set to Manual. You can press F9 to
force a recalculation under a manual setting.
Make sure you save the file with the Automatic setting, to avoid it
happening next time.
Hope this helps.

I build custom masters by mixing two general shapes, say square and
circle together, and have text on both the shapes.
But after I drop an instance of the master into a page, I cannot
modify the text of the instance. To do so, I need to modify the text
on the master, which is non-sense for me.
How to change the text of a shape without modifying its master?
How are you doing this? By code or by the UI?
Are you grouping the shapes? If you drag two shapes to the stencil, it will
group the shapes. So instead of a square and a circle you have three shapes.

in the original string you will get erroneous results. Put the cursor on the

Double left click the color you want to change
