Some date &/or Times will not format
I've imported some Date & Time data into excell, but when I try to format
the colums as either date or time, some of the cells will not formatt. I've
been told that sometimes importing data will result in hidden characters that
will prevent formatting. Any way to correct this using a formula or other

Go to the last page of the sp3 installation guide. It tells you to get the

I wish to show the language bar on my desktop but when I

The Language bar is displayed automatically if you install a text service

close the Language bar, you can use this procedure to redisplay it.

Set its control source to

Is there a way to change the way the drop down menus on the Page area of a
pivot table work? The default is to be able to choose one item or all items.
I would like to be able to choose multiple items from the drop down menu as
you can with items in the row area.
Thanks in advance for any help!
You can double-click on the page field button.
Then, in the Hide Items list, select the items you want to hide
Or, drag the page field to the Row area, and select items from the
field's dropdown list of items
Then, move the field back to the page area.

Use an update query. The SQL for such a query would look like:

I cannot seem to get this correct. I am trying to run a query on two
databases one of which is linked to the other. I am trying to get the query
to display a 0 for the total defects counted from one table based on the date
and time from another table. So far when I run the query I get only the
counts from the values that are not null.
Here is the SQL Statement:

I have a bar chart that shows the top 5 40 segments broken down by each
teritory. It graphs good, but I need to color code the segments into their
groups. So 1-5 may be one group, 6-13 will be another. When I color code
all turn the same color. I would like to conditional format on the
worksheet. Can that transfer to the chart? How do I manually make the
segments change. Each territory will not have the same top 5 segments, thus
using pivot to help with this task. The top 5 are from a generated report.
I could bring all 40 but will still want to graph top 5.

Instead of a line chart, you could create an area chart, with a

For example, with the following data in A2:E2 --

When we have more than on "line" of text in a cell, and when the cell
is the active one, the formula bar shows all this info in that sort of
preview but that obstructs the information in the cells directly below
the formula bar.
I can't remember how to turn that feature off. Anyone know?
