Pasting data from Excel
I'm not sure if I should be posting this question here or in the Excel
forum but here goes. Is it possible to copy data from multiple cells in
Excel and then paste them into multiple lines of the criteria section of an
Access query? For example, Given cells and values: A1- 1
I would like to be able to copy this data from Excel and paste it into an
Access query like : Criteria: 1

I'm trying to edit an excel worksheet that has drop down boxes.
However, the drop down boxes are not typical forms. These drop dow
boxes appear to be normal cells (They contain text). When I click o
the box, a little gray box shows up w/ a down arrow to the right of th
cell. However, if you right click on the cell, there aren't an
property options that are displayed.
I was wondering if anybody had any idea what kind of drop down box thi
is. How can I edit or create one

I am trying to select multiple text boxes for formatting the font but seem
unable to select all of them other than to click on each one individually.
Is there an easy way to select all of the text boxes at once?
To select multiple objects on the sheet --
Click on one object
Hold the Ctrl key, and click on additional objects
To select all the objects on the sheet --
Choose Edit>Go To, click Special
Select Objects, click OK
Or, to work with specific objects, you can add the 'Select Multiple
Objects' tool to one of your toolbars:

I have an Excel sheet which I use as an invoicing-application. I would like
to retrieve address-data from Outlook where I keep all my contact-data of my
customers. So, I want to select a customer from my Outlook contactlist when I
am writing a new invoice in Excel.
In Word, I have a macro which does this, but unfortunately the
Application.GetAddress does not work in Excel.
Can somebody help me ?

I have a Query fetch_from_bob that moves data (collapses records,unique key search, etc...) from excel spreadsheet "bob" to excel spreadsheet "fred". Fred and bob live in the same directory" c:\123directory" on the same computer.
I allow this query to execute/refresh data automatically when one of the query paramaters is changed. This works great. I also have a macro that invokes the query to refresh the data whenever the user desires. This works great as well. The macro literally has all the VB code to execute the query.

In Page Setup: If you are using the Scaling option to print to a certain
number of pages wide by pages tall and/or you are using the columns to repeat
at left, try:
- clearing the number of pages tall value (so that it is blank), and/or
- if you are printing to one page wide, remove the columns to repeat at left

I have created a template in Excel which has been set up so that the layout
is perfect when printing to pdf (which is how the document will mostly be
used) but the layout changes if printing direct to our printer. Is there a
way that I can ONLY allow printing to pdf from this document?
You may consider using some VBA to achieve this.
One way is to use the Workbook_BeforePrint event and specify the pdf printer
in the PrintOut method, eg:
Private Sub Workbook_BeforePrint(Cancel As Boolean)
ActiveSheet.PrintOut copies:=1, ActivePrinter:="CutePDF Writer on CPW2:"

If I need to read an XML file - basically the SAX approach where I just need

It looks like it's XmlReader but I want to verify that.

I have created a spreadsheet to help with a university engineering

summary of input variables, page 3: summary of calculation results

are 'stacked' on top of each other.
