Excel toolbars are missing
Version: 2008 Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) For some reason, and I do not recall doing anything at all, but the FORMAT and STANDARD toolbars are missing (or hidden).

Excel 2002 anomalous behavior
Hi all, a friend of mine asked me this question. He noticed a difference in behavior between Excel 2000 and Excel 2002, in opening a file. Infact, whilst Excel 2000 accept "parts of name" and opens the file, Excel 2002 does not, and constraints you to write the entire name (or, obviously, to find it via MS explorer and click it). I have checked Excel 2002 "tools-options" but i have not found any parameter. Please, may you tell me about it?

How can I wrap text in a text box in Excel?
I'm creating a form in Excel with fields to be completed by the user. In three sections, I need to insert a text box and have the entered text wrap to the next line within the designated box. I have tried merging the cells "under" the textbox and clicking on "wrap text" but it still does not want to wrap. I'm not sure if I understand your question. I hope I'm not over simplifying. If you have a Text Box and you want the text within the box to wrap, select the box and make it narrower by dragging in one of the sides. Otherwise, if you don’t want to chan...

w/excel how can I have half a page width differ from bottom
w/excel how can I have half a page width differ from bottom Column width is a property of the entire column so you cannot change = wdiths part way down. You can merge cells if just for display and printing only. Merged cells can cause no end of problems if you need to sort, copy and paste, filter or a host of other functions. BUT if only for print or display..........use them. Or place bottom half of data on another sheet, adjust width to suit then take a picture of it and paste to bottom half of first sheet.

Odd Behaviour - Project Gallery

When Project gallery opens and I select that folder, all the new templates show up but as blank white icons, not the normal blue and white images one expects. Interestingly, the older templates I had created with Word V. X show up normally. When I change the view in Project gallery, all the icons show up normally. In Finder the icons all show normally too. This does not affect the behaviour of the files so the problem seems to be cosmetic only. An...
