I am in the process of writing module using vba in ACCESS 2003 which imports
forecasted financial data from a particular excel file based on three inputs.
I am trying to include an "error check" that will end the process if the
three inputs do not match specific data in the excel file. I'm not sure how
to go about doing this. Do you have any ideas what the best way to do this
would be? Below is the code I have for the import part so far if that is

How to paste a row of cells from Excel to a PowerPoint 2003 Table row?
PowerPoint 2003 pastes all the row cells values in every cell in the row in
the PowerPoint table if I select the row in the PP table before the pasting.
PP pastes the row as an overlapping column if I place cursor in the first
cell of the target row before pasting.
...Keeping the format but update the data
I have a report I run everyday. I want to update the data, but keep the
column sizes and formatting. Any suggestions? Anybody suggest a good ebook to

JoeM, this could be as simple as recording a macro during the formatting of
the sheet after importing the data once. Then each day, after importing the
new data, you simply run that macro.
As for online eBook's for Excel, I'm not actually aware of any although I
suspect a Google search would turn up several. It's hard to beat the "For

I was able to copy and paste then not sure why but it would only paste the

This could be a poorly designed add-in interfering with copy and paste
operations. Did you install something recently?

I'm used to Outlook 2003, but I just bought a new computer and installed
Outlook 2007. I view a week at a time, and I prefer the calendar format in
2003 -- it shows the whole week in two columns and I didn't have to scroll.
Is there a way I can use the same format in 2007?
No, unfortunately that view had to be removed to enabled calendar overlay.

I am trying to email a long hyperlink path to some one that can only receive

When they receive the email it, the hyperlink gets converted in to 2 lines,
top line is a hyperlink (path incomplete) the second line is "text" with the

I placed < > around the hyperlink and it still splits in to 2 lines.
Is there any way to keep the full link path intact?

>...my formats get pushed out when I insert columns
I am having trouble when inserting columns in a large data field.
Whenever I insert a column at some point in the data field, th
formulas within the data field adjust, or 'stretch', to accomodate th
added column, however my conditional formatting gets pushed along t
the right and doesn't adapt itself in the same way the formulas do.
This means whenever I insert a column, the formulas remain correct bu
I have to reset the conditional formatting for the entire data field.
I would be extremely grateful for any advice on this situation.
Message pos...paste linked cells show "0"
I have a number of cells in a range (lets say A14:J52).
Some of these cells are "paste linked" from cells on other sheets.
Unfortunately, when the original cell is empty, the value of the
