Auto-format in Microsoft Excel.
Each time i try to enter a number range, for example, 8-
10, in Excel, it constantly re-formats it to a date. If I
change the formatting to "General" it turns it into a
random number, usually 38209. I would like to turn off
ALL auto-formatting, but that's probably asking too
much. How do I disable this frustrating feature?
When you enter "8-10" in a cell, that's not strictly a number but Excel
thinks you mean a date so converts it as such.
A date is a number and in your example the number 38209 represents August 10
2004 which is not a ra...Outlook needs Outlook Express to work
I've installed my Outlook 2002 on my new Vista PC (I had Xp before). Now when
I start Outlook it says "requires Outlook Express 4.01 or greater". I've been
looking for Outlook Express to download and install but no joy. No CD came
with my new Vista PC. Any ideas, short of buying a more modern Outlook?
Vista doesn't actually support Outlook 2002 or older. Outlook Express is
part of Internet Explorer but with the advent of Vista, it was switched to
Windows Mail. There is no more Outlook Express.

My wife's Intel Celeron running ME started having this problem

you may have to restart your computer.'
Re-starting however has no effect.

I really appreciate the way that Outlook auto-normalizes phone numbers -
for example, here in the US, I can enter 5555555555 and Outlook
automagically formats that to (555) 555-5555.
Why CRM 3.0 doesn't do this out of the box is strange but if anyone has
ideas on how to implement, that'd be greatly appreciated. I've worked very
hard to normalize all my data before import, but I know it's a matter of
time before our users (ok, our sales people) destroy all that hard work by
entering garbage into every phone field entry that the system cannot

we have one client pc with Outlook 2003 where the following problem
if a mail is replied from a user created sub folder of the inbox, the

properly though, it's just that Outlook sets internally sender =

This happens on a Win 2000 machine with SP4 and all updates, the other
