Copy and Paste not saving format changes

Version: 2008
Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard)
Processor: Intel

Hi,

I just bought Microsoft Office for Mac early this month and am still getting used to it. Can someone help me with this:

I have several documents typed onto a notebook layout with lots of bullet points, color changes, cross outs and the like. I wanted to copy and past all of that into a new document but when I did ALL of the formatting changes were lost. There were no bullet points, so the text flushed left, yada, yada, yada.

I looked around the toolbar to try and find a setting that would allow me to do the cut and paste while keeping all the whistles and bells but couldn't find it.

Can someone point me in the right direction? I figure something must be amiss in my settings but I don't know where to look.

Cheers,
wm

Try using Edit> Paste Special - formatted Text rather than just pasting.

Formatting a variable
I have the following code: Type ProdMatrix APN As Single ..... Dim ThisProd As ProdMatrix ..... tmpThisProd.APN = .Cells(tmpSrcRow, 2) The variable is supposed to contain the number 9317382120228, but instead contains 9.317382E+12 Then, when I execute the following code: With ThisProd Cells(LastRowDest, 1) = .APN & .StoreNo I get the result of 9.317382E+123201 in the cell where: ThisProd.APN = 9.317382E+12 ThisProd.StoreNo = 3201 I was expecting to get the number 93173821202283201.

Change SMTP Server name in Message-ID

Printing or formatting issue?
Dear all, Please bear with me on this one, I have posted something similar in the past and thought this issue had been resolved but hasn't!! In Finance we have staff who work on individual worksheets, these are then sent to one person who collates them into one workbook; this is then sent to our Finance MD and PA. The person who sends the workbook can print all sheets out fine on his HP5000n (A4 and A3), however the Finance PA (HP4050) and the MD (HPxxx) cannot, they complain that the formatting is all "off". I can confirm that all these users and those who originally created t...

How do I Restore old save dbx files back into OE store folder
I have some old dbx files that I saved into a folder in 'My documents' some time ago during earlier OE back ups. I now wish to re-import some of these saved dbx folders back into OE in order to assess some of these emails again. I've been looking at the wed sites 'Inside OE' and 'OE help'. But can't seem find or see the part that will give me directions on how to do this. Some of these saved dbx folders have the same names of existing folders that I'm currently using in OE.

Excel Regional Date Format Options
A client of ours in NZ is complaining that date format options for English (New Zealand) have changed from older versions of excel (they are using 2003) Some of their spreadsheets have dates formatted as dd-mmm-yy, mmm-yy and dddd,dd,mmm but these options do not exist anymore. Is there anyway to add options to this list without using the custom format option? Thanks, Jesse I just compared the Excel 97 and Excel 2003 built-in date formats and they are mostly unchanged. 2003 has a few more but I don't think there were any subtractions. The formats dd-mmm-yy and mmm-yy are righ...

Changing a customers Account Number?
Is it safe to edit a customers account number? I have some irregularities i would like to sort out, and would rather maintain the customers purchase history than make a new account? If i directly change the account number - will i mess anything up? In my personal opinion if the account number was system generated, I'd leave it alone; if you created your own account numbers for your customers, I don't think you'll have any issues, sql being a relational db and all.....nevertheless, back up your db and recreate it on say your laptop....then change one customer account numb...

keep fill color when copying down a formula?
Hello. I've got a spreadsheet where every other row is filled grey or white. This makes things a bit easier to read in print, but the problem is, when I copy a formula down a column, the fill color comes along with the formula. Is there any way I can ``lock'' the fill color to the cells so that this doesn't happen? Thanks for any help that's out there -- I really appreciate it.

How do you change the size of a range of cells in a column/row
without changing all cell sizes in those rows or columns You can't, width and height are properties of columns and rows, not cells.

Format>Row>Autofit
Hi in Excel 2003, I have a 380row x 2col sheet, all text, no functions so far. Text was imported from Word, other Excels etc. Up to 10 lines of text in some cells, word-wrapped, many new-line (Alt + Enter) breaks. No merged cells. Problem is, Format>Row>Autofit is unreliable. For 90% of cells works fine but some either show white space between text lines, or shrink too much, cutting off last text line(s). If adjusted manually, seems unstable - will revert for no reason. Looks like you need to remove the formatting before you pasted into the new spreadsheet. when youu paste - if you ...

Change Default Columns?
I use MS Outlook 2007 SP2. Is there a way to make all folders, or, at least all NEW folders have a standard set of columns, which is different than the default columns?
