I assume this is all in say cell A1

100, 105, 123, 041, 514, 455

If that's correct you can only change the font style,colour and Size
etc by selecting the cell then clicking into the forumla bar just below
the the Format dropdown list.

If it's turn off use the attached link to help you turn it on

Conditional Format to highlight rows
Column A is not formatted as a date but does contain the year and month as 2010 03. How can I use Conditional Formatting to highlight that row when it is the current month and current year? thanks to all... Use the formula =AND(--LEFT(A2,4)=YEAR(TODAY()),--RIGHT(A2,2)=MONTH(TODAY())) as your condition. Or =AND(--LEFT($A2,4)=YEAR(TODAY()),--RIGHT($A2,2)=MONTH(TODAY())) if you want to highlight the whole row. -- David Biddulph "Jack Deuce" <> wrote in message > Colu...

Increasing DPI output for jpg format
I created a business card in Publisher and am trying to upload it to a Business Card site in jpg format for printing. I used save-as in Publisher and selected the jpg format. the site has informed me that the dpi is insufficient for good quality. How do I increase the quality of the image or increase the dpi resolution of the image before using the save-as option in Publisher. In Publisher it looks great but the jpg image looks lousy. Thanks, Stuart James When you right-click your creation and click save as a picture, there is an option to change the resolution just above the file...

format cells #6
I have solved this so it is just my curiosity at play here. Using someone else's sheet, I entered a formula (=D235/80) into a cell expecting a numeric result not realizing that the cell was formatted as Text (so I got to see the formula as text). So I changed the cell format to Number with 4 places. To my surprise, the cell still displayed the formula. I looked for a leading ' or space but there was none. Retyping the formula produced the result I expected in the first place. What is going on? TIA Len ______________________________________________________ Changing the forma...

FRx 6.7 sp5 and Exporting to Formatted Excel
I've seen problems with the export to formatted Excel. A company running FRx 6.7 sp4 says it's taking 4 to 6 hours to create the files. The processing of data takes about 20 minutes. It's the actual spreadsheet tab creation that's taking so long. They have 4 companies and 99 units over all in the tree. When they had sp2, it was running no longer than an hour.

Is it possible to format a PSObject with a .ps1xml file?
This might be a totally ridiculous question...but here goes anyway: I have a couple of filters in modules that write PSObjects to output using code like: $x = New-Object PSObject -Property @{ one = "one" two = "two" } Write-Output $x There's just way more properties.

email format is changed from HTML to Text
I haven't done any research on this, I hope someone has the answer. Sometimes when I reply to a message, the email format is changed from HTML to Plain text automatically, It does't happen when I am writing a new email, it is just sometimes when I am replying. Are you sure that the message to which you are replying is HTML and not just plain text with foreign encoding? For example, I set the encoding for this message to Turkish, but it is still plain text. It just doesn't appear that way (to me anyway, and possibly also you). Ray at work "Alex Perez" <aperezny@h...

alternate row formatting in 2007-problems
I love the alternate row formatting now available in 2007 - but we are having some problems with it. When a new row is added in the middle of a sheet, it takes on the color of the row below it -- so then you end up having 2 blues or 2 whites - instead of alternate colors. It doesn't refresh itself to the alternate colors. ALso, we have one department that adds data at the end and then SORTS to get it in the right order.... again - it doesn't maintain the alternate colors after sorting - In fact, the inconsistant grouping of colors almost makes it more difficult to read. ...
