Hi. This is my first time posting to this NG. I visited my accountant today
and he recomended me to get Microsoft Excel so that I can stay more
organized and present my tax figures easier. I dont know a thing about
excel. I have been doing things the old fashion way. I use COrel Word
perfect to do documents and make my own graphs and log info to that. But
I went to the web site and I beleive Excel 2003 costs about $200. to upgrade
is $109 or so. Is there a cheaper way to get this program or an alternative.

We are currently running Exchange 2000 in Win2k Active directory. Our
company name just changed and i was wondering if anyone could help me with
the best way to update my network to reflect the change.
Should I just change the organization name in Exchange or would i have to
run some tool to have it done properly?
Currently my organization uses the format: organization.com. The new name
will be organization2.com. Another caveat is that i want to be able to

Could someone please help with a macro or any other suggestion to format an
Excel sheet. Basically data is downloaded from a bank every week and the
size of the file can vary but the formatting is constant. That is each
record is 7 lines. So first record is line1-7, second record is line 8-14,
third record is line 15-21 and so on.
I need to format this data and basically I can record a macro for one data
set that is for the record on line 1 to 7. My question is how can I set it
to replicate so that it replicates for line 8-14 and then 15-21 and so on.

Hi all. I created an excel document using excel2003 and save it in a file
server. As it is a shared file, it was opened by another user using excel97
for editing. However after the file was saved by the user of excel97, the
layout of the content in the file became very different compared to the 1
that was saved by myself when i was using excel2003. As the user of excel97
merely change the data without editing any layout, why did this happened? Is
it due to the different versions of excel being used? How can i solve this?
Thks in advance.

I am using the Named ranges in excel to store metadata about each cell
in excel that can persist with the excel file. So 1 cell = 1 Named
Range.Advantage of using this approach is excel automatically updates
the name references, even if we cut-and paste cells.
As per this link(http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/excel/HP051992911033.aspx
), the amount of named ranges is limited only by
the amount of available memory.

In thread "Ctrl-H crashes Excel 2002", a couple of dozen threads
before this one, I reported that, in Excel 2002 without Service Packs
After you do a search by Values (as opposed to Formulas), henceforth
Ctrl-H crashes Excel.
(You could prevent that by reassigning Ctrl-H to a macro.)
Thanks to Mike Mendelson & Dave Peterson, I found that Office XP SP3
fixes the problem. (I don't know which SP fixed the bug--1, 2, or 3.)
Now, Ctrl-H brings up the Search dialog without crashing.

cannot because I have too many inputs).
Is there a simple macro I can copy and paste?

I am using Excel 2002 SP-2 on a Windows XP machine running a Pentium 4
2.8 GHz processor with 1 Gb RAM.
When building a VBA userform, whenever I click on the properties box to
change the font size for e.g. a label or textbox caption, Excel starts
another process (i.e. I see another Excel process on the Windows task
bar) and consumes close to 100 % of my CPU.
The first couple of times I tried this, Excel eventually brought up the
