On a few of the sheets in the workbook, I have listboxes allowing me to
select the tenor of the series I'm trying to price. Occasionally excel goes
into a 'death spiral' and begins to resize these boxes automatically until
they are almost non-existent and then crashes.
The problem is not consistent - many times I can close and reopen excel and
the problem is solved. I figure there must be a conflict somewhere, but I...How to Set/Change Transparency to CEdit control?
How to set/change Transparency to Custom Edit control. Can I use
SetLayeredWindowAttributes() to set alpha factor for CEdit control?
Can I use WS_EX_LAYERED style to child (CEdit) controls?
Or should I use GDI+ library feature
(Gdiplus::SolidBrush(Gdiplus::Color()). At present both ways are not
working for me.
Since the edit control is drawn with GDI, invoking a GDI+ mechanism is not going to be
terribly successful. While you might consider subclassing the edit control and returning
a NULL_BRUSH, this will not produce satisfactory results because edit controls are drawn

I was advised to use Image Writer as a default versatile

What version Publisher? Look on the Publisher disk. I simply don't know why it isn't
on your computer. I've had it on my computer since time began so I assumed it was a
Windows thing, after looking around I have concluded it is a Publisher driver.

Hey all=). I'm not sure my title makes sense, so let me go into further
detail. Lets say you have a large report of data, in which you copy lines out
of to a new sheet, in the same workbook. So now you can work on this single
item, without all the other info, but instead of having to go back to the
main sheet once I am finished and find that line again, is there a way, to
link the cells, so that whatever you type into your new cells, will update
the cells of origin?
...Using ListView background as Generic Graphic File viewer?
On another forum, a user posted a message to the effect he could use
a listview control, with or without frame, and set the background to a
graphic file to get a view of the file (which could be one of multiple
common graphic file types)
Is anyone familiar with this technique and could they give an example of
the purported 5 or 6 lines it would take to implement?
I found what is likely the solution, but it says it uses OLE COM libraries.
Basically I put this call in OnInitDialog():

I've tried to set the image height of an
image control in the OnOpen code:
Me.ctlImage.Height = 1.193 * Me.ctlImage.Width
such that it will conform to the aspect

The assignment statement didn't have any
affect. With a debug stop after the statement,
neither the height or width show any value.
What do I need to do here to set the Height
property of the image control?
I see I need to do two things. One is that the
width needs to be obtained with the ImageWidth
property. And two, that I need to deal with these
quantities being in twi...Sorting ListBox

Can I fill a cell with a transparent color?
Could you elaborate a little please? Your text will render regardlesas of

want to set the transparency, well, I don't think that's possible unless you
cover a cell with a text box from Drawing. You can adjust the transparency

...ListBox/ComboBox creation/deletion using VBA.
I wish to offer users the facility to select data from a list that is

I know how to use VBA to populate the list and to determine the response and
process accordingly. I have already done this with pre-existing boxes that

But, search as I may, I cannot find out how to Create and Delete list/combo

I'm new at Publisher 2003 and am wondering if I'm doing something wrong. After creating my page of text and graphics I decided I wanted a gradient in the background of the page. I drew a box, filled it with a gradient, and moved it the the back of the document layers. When I printed it, the gradient looked too dark. I went into the "fill" settings for the box and adjusted the transparency for the gradient to make it look "softer" on the page. Now the transparency looks great in Publisher, but when I print it I get the same dark gradient as before. It acts like...How can I scan images into seperate worksheets at once?

I'm creating an area chart from 2 series of data on Office XP. The area charts overlap each other.

However, the fill effects | gradient | transparency feature is disabled.
Any suggestions appreciated.
Microsoft put the Transparency on that dialog to make you wish you were
using a Mac. Transparency chart fills are not possible to create in
Windows Excel, although you can view the effect in Windows if it was
produced that way on a Mac.

I am building a database of the inventory in a store. My database is working
splendidly but then the manager's said to add a thumbnail of all the items to
their corresponding record. I thought that by simply adding an ole object
field would do the trick but apparently when I look at the report and print
it; the images don't appear, only their pathname. I need the pictures to be
visible and that I can print the report with the images showing. Please help!

I'm curious - what do you mean by "semi-transparent"? Do you mean something

Operating System: Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard)
I'm experiencing a frustrating problem with images in MS Word. My colleague sends me Word documents images produced in Kaleidagraph that I think are .tiff or .png. On my screen, the image box size is correct, but the image itself appears as a tiny preview-sized low-resolution reproduction in the upper-left corner of the box. The same thing happens if I try to print or save as a PDF. If I right-click the image, Word refers to it as an "unknown object". <br>

...Listbox returning numeric value not string
I have a multiselect listbox that lists all users in my MDW file. After
making selections and submitting my form, the values that were selected are
not the text strings displayed in the lisbox, but rather numeric values.
How do I return the text string?
If you have multiple columns in your list box, you can return the correct
value by identifying the column you want. If the text is in say column 2,
you would use
Column numbers for a list box start at 0.

then I create and add a datagridviewimagecolumn. The reason I'm
