...Auto-format in Microsoft Excel.
Each time i try to enter a number range, for example, 8-
10, in Excel, it constantly re-formats it to a date. If I
change the formatting to "General" it turns it into a
random number, usually 38209. I would like to turn off
ALL auto-formatting, but that's probably asking too
much. How do I disable this frustrating feature?
When you enter "8-10" in a cell, that's not strictly a number but Excel
thinks you mean a date so converts it as such.
A date is a number and in your example the number 38209 represents August 10

I have designed an Access database that holds records relating to my stores
audit results going back for about 5 years plus a load more information
relating to these stores. This was used to produe a pack once a month,
however a change in senior management means that I have got to shelve this
and prodce a similar pack in Excel.
The idea would be that the user could select a month or a 12 mnth date range
that would produce data that could then be used to populate a number of excel

I am getting no where fast. I have a main form and sub form and what i need
is a message to appear when user moves on to the next record using the record
selector on the bottom of the form. I have tried the beforeupdate on the form
but no results. Can form design prevent a message prompt?
One problem is that if no changes to the current record have been changed,
the Before Update event will not fire.
If you do make a change, the code as is should work.
I have gotten into the habbit of not using the standard record navigators,
but write my own so I can easily deal with this.

Suddenly I am getting the following message when I try to close a workbook:

The mysterious thing is that it does not happen consistently and that, after
I click OK after the above message, I can still save the file.

I don't know of any way to reliably do what you're after. However, a
better solution would be to create a new toolbar button and attach a
macro that you record (Tools/Macros/Record new macro) applying the
border style, thickness and color that you want.
