Fancy Lookup
First off this question is not for the feint of heart. I know my way around Excel pretty good but what I want to do is but very tricky and possibly impossible but please someone prove me wrong. Here is the deal I have this table of data from A1:F1000 that I need to retrieve data from. Col A has a list of Emp. ID’s, Col B is their Dept, Col C is the Date, Col D is hours worked, Col E is hours scheduled, and Col F is Schedule adherence. This table includes data for a whole month and is sorted in ascending order of Emp. ID’s. As such every one of the Emp. ID’s will appear multiple times on...

numbering multilevel list word 2007
trying to use a multilevel number list and when I hit ENTER (return) the numbering stops (the icon for numbering become un-highlighted) If this is numbering attached to headings, note that, by default, the Normal style will be applied to text when you press Enter (at the end of a heading). You can change the "Style for following paragraph" in the style definition for the relevant heading(s). -- Stefan Blom Microsoft Word MVP "dheuermann" <dheuermann@discussions.microsoft.com> wrote in message news:EEF7E0F7-76A1-4B55-98B3-981E303C7A68@microsoft.co...

Money 2007 Won't Install on Windows 2000??
What's the story, Microsoft? Hard to believe that Money 2007 won't install on Windows 2000! 2000 is still supported by Microsoft, yet their new Money version rejects it. I'm not buying XP, just to run Money. 2000 works fine for me on several machines for all of my computing needs. I'm going to run Money 2006, and start testing a move to Quicken. Open source or Linux money software still has a way to go, so that's out. If not, I'd probably be gone from Money, and Windows as well! I can't imagine what feature that XP has relative to 2000 that is so critic...

Integrate CRM with word?
One of my colleagues has asked me whether it is possible to integrate CRM with word, to the extent that when they wish to create a letter, the necessary information finds its way to the correct place in a word document. If its possible I'd assume the process to be similar to that exporting to excel - i.e. click on an export button and a letter format with relevant information pops up, to which the body can be added. Is this at all possible? If so do we need to consult someone familiar with the server side and coding, or can it be done via the UI? Thanks in advance Robert Turnbul...

Settings for viewing PPT presentation in Word Doc
One of my users has been receiving MS Word docs with embedded PPT presentations and viewing them just fine. She recently felt the need to change "something" in the latest Word doc and now she only sees the first slide - double clicking does not start the slideshow. Others in her office can access the document and the presentation works fine. It appears that she inadvertantly changed some setting in her Word options that govern how an embedded PPT file works. She is using Office 2007 and I can't find anything. Her project is going to continue at least another 10 mo...

Powerpoint 2007 SP2 crashing when importing data
My user's are experiencing crashes when importing data from another program. From Word or Excel, and it may be multiple issues. No error, the program just locks up for 5-10 minutes, and then crashes. Sometimes, office-kb975021-fullfile-x86-glb.exe fixes importing from Excel. Other times, MicrosoftFixit50352.msi will fix importing from Word. Other times, nothing will fix this. From what I'm reading in some basic Google searches, this may have come up with one of the updates included with SP2. Some suggestion even call for removing SP2, either with a utility of ma...

I used Recovery Toolbox for Outlook, and it did extract the emails that were in the pst file and it has its interface, that's good. However, is missing one crucial part, the date of when the email was sent. it does not not state the dates when those emails were sent and that is very important for me as I have thousands of emails that I track through the date(s). Does anyone knows a similar program that does what was mentioned above, but also displays the dates of when the ema...

Make a small print preview visible in Word toolbar
When typing a letter and needing to be sure it is situated properly for letterhead, it would be immensely helpful to see a miniature preview while working in the document. This would avoid having to repeatedly open and close the print preview screen when trying to adjust a document so it will print correctly. By having a small preview at the top of the page, changes made by adding lines and spaces would be immediately visible and editing can be made less annoying. BTW, I really love Word, but this would be helpful! Maybe it's already on Word 10? ---------------- Thi...

title bar problem in Excel 2007
Sometimes when I start Excel for the first time after starting the PC, the title bar is overlaid with the status bar that would normally appear at the bottom of Excel, so I don't get to see the round Office button, and I see the zoom facility at the top, not the bottom, and the workspace is empty - no default empty spreadsheet. If I close Excel (by right clicking on the taskbar because there is X button to be seen) and then start it up, it then starts up fine. Excel was installed as part of Office 2007 SBE, running on Vista Ultimate 64 bit. Is this a known problem? I've not be...

Word docs copied into Outlook have strange formats when received by other email browsers
When I send mail from Microsoft Outlook, it often looks strange when received by another user in Eudora. Recently, strange three line breaks were inserted between one paragraph and another, which only showed up when the mail was opened in Eudora. There were other odd formatting errors too. Yet the mail looked fine when received by another user in Outlook. Perhaps the problem was that the Outlook email originated in a copied-in Word document? Documents originated as PDF files do not seem to cause the same problems. Does anyone know the best way to copy documents from Word into Outlook, so a...
