Inserting transparent gifs into document gives white borders
I have used Photoshop to create pictures which have no background
(transparent) so that I can put them into Publisher and would see the
background of the Publisher file instead of a big white box. I save them as
transparent .gif files and can use them in other software just fine.
But when I put them into a Publisher document, the white backgrounds come

I am having a problem; the y-axis box size does not display the entire text.
I cannot change the size of this box. This only happens for the y-axis, not
for other axis labels or the chart title.
I have tried adding spaces followed by a period to fool the box and this
works in Excel, but when I copy the chart to a Word document, the full text,
including the final period appears.

I have an excel sheet containing several borders with
varying line styles. The color of these is automatic
(black). I wish to change to 50% grey. The
format/cell/border menu does not appear to allow
wholesale change of color. Changing them individually is
not an option, since it would take a long time. Please
Here is some code to do it.
Select all your cells, then run this code
.Borders(xlEdgeLeft).ColorIndex = 48
.Borders(xlEdgeTop).ColorIndex = 48
.Borders(xlEdgeBottom).ColorIndex = 48
When I try to draw a border around a cell, it appears in a very faint shade
of grey, almost indistinguishable from the normal gridlines. How can I
change the default colour of a border to black? I know how to do it
manually for each cell, but I want to know how to change the default colour
for the borders icon on the format bar.

I do not know how I did it but all my comments (about 200 of them) defaulted
to a size that makes them almost invisible with only the tails showing. The
only way I can resize them is by going into each one and change the shape. I
gave up after about 50 and I am now desperate for the information contained
in all comments boxes.
Is there a way of making all the boxes the same size in one go? How did I
manage to screw up and how do I avoid doing it again.
You could resize them programmatically. There's sample code here:

If you put a text field into the data area of a pivot table, it will
summarize the field to show a count, instead of showing the text.
You can place the text fields in the Row, Column or Page areas, where
their text will show.

...how to set value of text bounded on combo box?
I have a combo box with row sours of a table, and there is a text box. What
I want to do is once the user selects a value from the combo box, the text
box should be filled by a specific data. For example, the combo box has list
of names, and once the user select the name; the text box shows the phone
number of the selected name automatically.
Note: both the name and phone number are in the same table.
How can I do that?
Make sure that the query for the combobox returns both the name and
phone number. The Phone number does not have to be visible in the

How do I change or delete a name in an Excel name box?
(A name box is the white rectangle in the upper left corner of an Excel page
that shows the cell address, e.g. Q143. You can change the 'name' of the
cell from the cell address to a description, e.g. Sales-Other and click it
from a drop down menu at the name box instead of scrolling to it.)
You're referring to a named range. On the main menu, click >Insert

drop down: you can edit, delete, expand etc from that list.

If you are using non-breaking spaces in your Pub docs and edit your story in
Work (Edit-->Edit Story in Word), beware that the character after the

and return to Pub the characters are truncated in the original Pub doc.

...Angled borders/text and filling in empty cells
Two quick questions:

the cell above it, which may or may not have text in it,
to have/match the "angled" border like the one below it,
how do you do that?
2. If you have a cell range, say A1:G10 with some empty
cells and some with data in them, is there a way to fill

for that matter) easily?
