Very annoying behaviour of Excel 2003
Each time I am opening Excel, it is installing some component. This takes
several minutes, and becomes very annoying.
I recently had to reinstall XP and Office from the distribution CDs. I have
the problem since then. It certainly has something to do with the install.
Does anyone on this forum ever experienced such a behaviour.
I am running Office 2003 on XP SP3.
have you tried doing a repair in the help menu?

Is the sheet protected? You cannot hide a protected sheet.

Go into the Tools Menu. Look for AutoCorrect. In the bottom half of the
AutoCorrect Tab, look at the list for Replace text as you type. Delete the

I'm struggling very hard in getting beyond this error when trying to use VB to generate a chart from data previously inserted into the sheet.
Unable to set the Values property of the Series class.
The code works absolutely fine in XL2007 but I am having to port it back to 2003 and the inference is that its empty values that cause it to hiccup - something I cannot avoid.
My code is:
1. Retrieve selected data from database and place it at the top of the sheet
2. Add The Chart
3. Iterate through the data (amount can be variable depending upon user inputs)

I'm running Excel 2000 on a Win98 machine. When I enter a number in a
cell Excel is now ignoring zeros on the right hand side. For example,
if I type 100 <CR> the number 1 appears in the cell. Setting Format
Options to two decimal places does not fix this. In that case I will
get 1.00. Also, if that cell is used to multiply another the contents
of another cell the result is just multiplied by 1. In order for me
to get 100 in the cell I must type 100 and a decimal point.

I am creating data in an Excel spreadsheet. I then want to get that data
into a simple text email. I have some problems and questions...
1) how do I get the columns of data to line up evenly when I copy the data
to email text ? Keep in mind I need to be in simple text format, not HTML
or rich text.
Every time I do this, all columns become chaos and are unreadable.
2) Is there a simple way to automate the creation of an email from an excel
file ? this is less important to me.
Thanks in advance

a bit dynamic data here. So when I type the name of the product excel would
give me the price from other worksheet.

memberships - have such hidden addresses.
What terms would she use to search for these pests, either in My Docs
or on opening each sheet?

run it as much as i want, but if i run with break points it crashes a lot
because of multiple excel.exe loaded into memory. perhaps there is a way i
can force excel to only load one excel.exe?
