Conditional format on data change

I've a 5-column table with financial data sorted by the field "payee". 
As the table is extensive I would like to highlight the row(preferably) 
or the cell at each data change in the payee field.

Can this be done?

Unable to use right-click on cells; standard and formatting toolbars disabled

Second, and really important for me because I use a lot of this feature, in the working area, right-clicking no longer works. When I right-click a cell, row, or column, no right menu appears with the traditional copy, cut, paste etc or whatever. Noth...

How to change a color of a group of controls
Hello, I have the following case - on a massive dialog I have a couple of group boxes. Basically I am interested in only one of these. It has got a few controls in it - 3 static texts plus 2 date/time pickers. When one of the pickers reaches certain date I want everything on in this group to have yellow background. It looks like this is very difficult - a groupbox deas not have a interior. Therefore it is impossible to paint the whole group of controls. I was trying to first make a huge static text (without a caption) and then place the control on it. But it looks like this deas not work - w...

Exchange Server status during DST change over
Can anyone point me at a resource for what to do during DST change back to normal time? I'm not talking what patches to install or how to "fix" your computer, I'm asking what do you do with the server during the hour rollback. Every resource on the web (that I can find) just talks about patch this, run that, etc. It may be an obvious answer but what do we do during the period of change over, when the clocks go back one hour? Leave the server on, shut it down so it doesn't have any connections, or what? Let it roll into the new time or shut it down during the proble...

Reports in column format
My report page set-up is for 3 columns with zero spacing between columns. There is a box around the set of controls. I have the palette narrowed to the absolute minimum width so that there is no working space to the right of my controls. The result is a calendar-like presentation. The problem arises when I want to center text in the headers and footers. If I simply place my header text in the header section, it will appear more or less towards the left side of the page. In order to get it centered, I have to widen the palette and then center the text manually. If I do this, then...

Currency Formatting.
I have formatted number ( say 53.345 ) to currency format with $ symbol and 2 decimals. When I do this, I don't see any change in the display. But when I place my cursor in the cell and press return, then the format changes to currency. Please note that the data is coming from Query thru ODBC connection to SYBASE. Thx. That is because the data is importing as text, which doesn't format, and only gets converted to a number, which does format, when you edit it. -- HTH RP (remove nothere from the email address if mailing direct) "John Smith" <John Smith@discussi...
