Not Recognized Format
I've written large workbooks with excel xp, but at home I am using excel
2000. Is there any way to convert the xls file format that xp uses so I can
work with the spreadsheet at home?
All versions of Excel since 97 use the same file format, so no
conversion is necessary. If you can't open the file, it is

I have an existing workbook with cell text entries in regular black font. I
want to make a number of additional entries in various cells in this
workbook, and I want all my text entries to be a different font format (bold,
red). Is there a way to do this automatically without highlighting each
entry I make and manually changing the cell format? Thanks.

I have a userform that I've generated which routes dates onto a spreadsheet
based on the users input. I am having a bit of a frustrating time with the
dates, it would appear that in the process of moving the date from the
userform to the spreadsheet some dates are switched/transposed. I'll give an
example. If someone enters 09/02/2004 on the userform excel seems to look at
09 and assume it is a month and transposes the dates to 02/09/2004(this does
not appear to be a US/UK format issues as I have already gone down that
road). However, if the date 13/09/2004 is entered i...Sorting Alphanumeric values in a text field
I'm using Access 2003 for a database for my company. I have a field in a
table that has both text and numbers. They are part numbers, for example
21BC124. I kept the field as text because of the text with in the numbers
and didn't figure that a numeric field would alow the text. In my part

number again), but in my reports and queries there are a few number that sort

I'm using Excel 2000. I have a set of merged cells A5-

merged cells and it is not working. All I get is the
first line of text showing and the rest is cut off. It

manually resizing the height of the row?

I've created a Combo Box using the Controls Wizard. In creating the

This is probably a second question.
Also, when the user views a form that has been populated, I'd like them to
