Microsoft Word's language settings... a bug.

One day, when I was doing Spanish homework on Microsoft Word, I set the 
language to Spanish to see if I spelled anything wrong. When I finished, I 
exited out and came back a day later to open up Word. When I typed in my 
name, I went to this path:

Review -> Set Language

....and then I found that for some reason the default language was Spanish, 
even though I did not say for it to be the default language. So, I set the 
default to English, and then everything seemed fine. BUT, when I came back 
again the following day, the default language was Spanish again! The weird 
thing about this is that it only has Spanish as the default language for the 
first 2 or 3 lines of the document.

How can I fix this?

For my work we have made templates for different letters we have to send. Our application (VB6) calls those templates when we want to send a letter.

How to quote cells when "IF" word is involved
On Sheet1, I have a data set (C1:C100) based on the input of cell A1. When A1 has various method choices,say,"method 1","method 2","method 3", each cell in the data set will have a new value accordingly. (=IF(A1="method 1",formula1,IF(A1="method 2",formula2,formula3)) I want to quote those three data sets on Sheet2. A lousy way is I could just duplicate Sheet1, set A1 to different value and quote data sets from different sheets. Is it possible to quote three data sets simultaneously from Sheet1?

How do I set up excel to make estimating(pricing) easier?

Language on templates

Managing spam emails
Hello, I have recently started using Outlook 2k3 and have a couple of questions about handling spam emails. I know you can just right-click on the Junk folder and delete all the messages inside. But, I like to at least preview the message list in the Junk folder before deleting everything, so that I can make sure that messages I want aren't being misdirected there and deleted by mistake. I know that often, just opening a spam email will activate an invisible "web bug" in web-based email that alerts the spammer that you've opened their message, and then they send you...
