Insertion point in selected text
Operating System: Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard)
I had to reinstall Office 2008 and since then, Word is behaving differently when I try to click inside a portion of text that is selected. Instead of dismissing the selection and giving me an insertion point, the selection background briefly blinks and stays there, and a smart tag appears. I have to click outside the selected text and then put the insertion point where I want it.� <br><br>What is even more intriguing is if I happen to be tracking the changes, I can see that Word does something when I...The Sum from 1 worksheet cell to another worksheet cell

I have to review starting for example with May, I need to find any cell in

So if May is null and Jun and Apr are not null than I would count that as 1.
If May is null and either Jun or Apr are null then I would not count them.

I seem unable to select a single cell, or a single row--click on one in the
normal manner, and the two below also highlight, then delete or whatever
command is given. If I input a number/text, that just goes into the one
cell. tapping F8 increases this to two wide and three high automatically
Also, very slow to do almost anything.

I once wrote here about a problem I had cutting and pasting where columns

it didn't so now I am thinking of a different solution.

I have a user with an Excel worksheet. There are multiple rows and columns
and they are all set on center alignment, (center alignment icon on the

only left align. Format Cells --> Number is set to General, so I don't know
why it won't change the alignment.
Other than the worksheet being corrupted, I don't know what could be wrong
Any suggestions are much appreciated.

There is one-to-one relationship between IP table and Device table.

The probles is that in the device form the ip dropdown now only shows

In Access, I can set up a field that "forces" the user to enter info - a
date, for example - in a certain way, such as 25 Jan 05 or enter time as

Without invoking something more technical, you can select the cell(s) and go
to Data>Validation and choose what type of entry be allowed in the field.
Format the cell in the manner you wish to have the date or time expressed.

it is not then you need to ask the keyboard manufacturer.
