I want to run the code below to prevent a range of cells from being selected
if the Range("Q7") = 1. I have all cells on the worksheet locked but the
user must be able to click on the locked cells to trigger a userform so I
have to check Select Locked Cells. So is there any way make the

No but you can stop them staying there.

...Fax Icon on my File menu and toolbar
I had a Fax Icon on my toolbar and also on the file menu. All of a sudden it
is gone and I want it back. Where did it go?
Was it a dedicated toolbar? Or was it just icons on a builtin toolbar?
If it was a dedicated toolbar, you may get lucky and find it under:
(just not selected)
But if it was on a builtin toolbar (along with the file menu), then maybe you
reset your toolbar--also under:
selecting a toolbar and hitting the reset button.
If that's what happened, I think I might try to find the Fax addin/workbook that

Please bear with me if this subject has been covered ad nauseum, but I
frequently receive email with no "From:" address, no subject and no
apparent content. I'm running Outlook 2002. Can anyone tell me what's
going on here? Is it an attempt to plant a Web bug? Regardless, I
would like to create a rule that automatically dumps such mail in my
spam folder. Using the rules wizard I see how to redirect email from a
specific address, but leaving the address field blank doesn't work.
Thanks in advance for any help.
...exporting outlook 2000 pst files to a database
I need to export outlook 2000 to a database- attachments
and all. Is there a simple way to do this so you can search
and retreive messages and attachments in a database form?
You can export individual folders to access or excel to have them available
for searching. I have never tried to export my entire .pst file to access
or excel however.

OK, now I've really had it! This is my last resort!
Several years ago, while using Money 97, our computer
crashed. We had backed up every time we used money, so I
thought we were OK. However, we could never get the
backup file to pull up after fixing the computer and
everything was lost. I vowed that this would not happen
again, so I tried backing up on a ZIP disk instead, and
then on CDs. I also got on this newsgroup and got the
advice that I needed to first copy the backup file onto
the desktop and open it from there. I tried doing that

When my users open an Excel spreadsheet located on a
network drive, make their changes, and then try to save
the spreadsheet, they get an error message saying "Your
changes could not be saved to Whateverfile.xls, but were
saved to XXXXXXXX ( 8 digit hex number ). Close the
existing document, then open the temporary document and
save it under a new name"
The users have been explicitly granted full rights,
including Delete and Modify, to the shared folder in
which the spreadsheet resides.
I have disabled their Symantec Antivirus realtime

After spending a lot of time to customize a toolbar in Excel 2003, it disappears when opening up another file, or starting the app again. I repeatedly change it, save it as XLB, XLT, save multiple copies in every possible location...but the damn thing always defaults to its own toolbar settings. This makes toolbars almost useless.
How can one insist that PPT use YOUR toolbar setting, rather than its own default
If I have a lot of tool bar changes to make, I close all the
workbook that are not hidden then unhide my personal.xls
from the Window menu.

it, then saved it, I got the same error when I tried to

For the date use
replace A1 with the first cell of your range
you probably have to reformat the first to

try to take out decimal places it goes back to zero,
You haven't said what number you are trying to put into the cell, but I
suspect that the number is less than 0.5.
A quick test shows that if you set the cell to no decimal places then enter
a number less than 0.5 it is displayed 'rounded down' so it will show as
zero, if it's 0.5 or above it displays as 1.

Hello All -

Several years ago, I built an access db to track my business

So this database is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO ME.
The file has grown to 140 MB.
Today I made a copy of the file and then edited my calendar table.
I removed all columns which had 2006 data (72 totals columns) - the
table had about 144 columns originally.
I then added 72 columns with 2008 headers. These columns are now
blank since I have not added any 2008 data yet. Afterwards, I looked
around and everything looks good - my 2007 data is the...a few basic question about resource files
I have an application that uses resource files to contain the string values

I have created the required resource files in my project, but I don't speak

What I would like to do, is somehow allow the end user to edit the resource
file themselves so they can set the string values as needed.
Is there a way to edit the resource files that ship with my application and
get installed ?

I have a formula in cell H21, for example, reads like this:
is there a way to adjust the formula so that an empty cell in G21 doesn't

Just to give a similar example, this formula =SUMIF(A1:A9,"<>0") adjusts for
any and all empty cells in A2 to A9. It no longer matters if any of the
cells are empty, the formula correctly gives the correct addition of A1
plust a sum of everything between A2 to A10 without any #VALUE! results.

I recently started having troubles with my Publisher 2003. Whenever I go to

disappears. I also noticed that when it does this, it leaves the .tmp files
in the directory where I tried to save. I can change the name of the files,
and sometimes it will save it. Most of the time not though. I have NAV, and I
