Change default font format in Excel
I have an existing workbook with cell text entries in regular black font. I
want to make a number of additional entries in various cells in this
workbook, and I want all my text entries to be a different font format (bold,
red). Is there a way to do this automatically without highlighting each
entry I make and manually changing the cell format? Thanks.

I have a userform that I've generated which routes dates onto a spreadsheet

dates, it would appear that in the process of moving the date from the
userform to the spreadsheet some dates are switched/transposed. I'll give an
example. If someone enters 09/02/2004 on the userform excel seems to look at
09 and assume it is a month and transposes the dates to 02/09/2004(this does
not appear to be a US/UK format issues as I have already gone down that

Nope. I'm afraid that's only possible using Outlook.
In WLM you have to use the built in editor. Is there anything in particular

"...cannot insert hyperlink
Hi - others had reported this to me before, and at that time, it worked
perfectly well for me - but now, my system has the same problem: I cannot
insert a hyperlink into an email message. It's in HTML format, so I select
a word of text, and use Insert / Hyperlink, enter the URL - but after that
box closes, there's still no hyperlink. I am aware of the fact that
hyperlinks will only be clickable after the message will have been sent;
however, now, they aren't any more. And, before, I'd at least see the text
formatted like a link - that's no longer the case.

Hello. I recently posted a question related to the issue of
putting a mu (=B5) symbol into MS Excel charts. Someone kindly
suggested using the Alt-numeric code (alt-0181) to place this symbol
into the spreadsheet cell which then showed up nicely in the chart.
However, when I try to do this same operation using alt+ NumPad 68
(susposed to give the delta symbol), all I get is a capital D. What
gives? Why does one symbol work and not the other? I even
downloaded the program QuickKeys from SourceForge.net and this still
did not solve the problem. Any ideas??

Thanks to John Spencer, I resolved one problem in my union query (Thank you,
John). But I have another problem. Some of my fields in my union query are
currencies and others percents. I see both formats are lost. I am sure it is
a union query problem, because when I ran an individual query, none of the
formats were lost. Is there any way I can keep currency and percent formats
without writing, FORMATCURRENCY, etc for each field?

The field in a UNION query will normally take on the data type of the field
in the first SELECT. So, if ...Cell Shading > 3 conditions
I have a spreadsheet that contains up to 6 different text strings. I'd
like to automatically change the text color or the cell shading
depending on the specific condition. For example, if the cell contains
"A", make the cell shading red. If it contains "B", change the font
color to red. Excel's conditional formatting limits me to 3 conditions.
How can I accomplish this objective?
I'm using Office 98 on a Mac, and worse, I'm not VBA smart.
