    Dim myTable As Table

    For Each myTable In ActiveDocument.Tables
        ' do something with myTable, for instance:
        myTable.Columns(1).Width = InchesToPoints(1.5)

Pivot table formulas
Hi, I am trying to create a calculated field in a pivot table but cannot get the expression to work correctly. I have a field called Class Description and I need to perform a COUNT function on it.

Problem with Excel getting correct # of records back from Access
I have a qry in MSAccess that brings me 1316 rows, but when I go to excel and run the qry it only gives me 692 rows.

adding new records from one table to an existing table
I'm pretty new to access so please bear with me. This may be really simple. I have a table listing thousands of existing stores. In the existing table i have a lot of geographic information including lat/ long, address, etc. Periodically I will need to add new records from another table. However, in the new table the field names aren't identical. the original table i have Original Address 1 and in the new table it says Address 1. I also don't have all the fields in the new table. So i need to add in the new records with their corresponding fields(i will fill in the mi...

Pivot Table (blank) Cells

multiple charts from a single pivot table
Hi can i create several pivot charts from a single pivot table? Nope. -- Best Regards, Luke M *Remember to click "yes" if this post helped you!* "Yossi evenzur" wrote: > Hi > can i create several pivot charts from a single pivot table? No, but you can copy the pivot table to create another which uses the same pivot cache, so they will refresh in synch with each other, and share any grouping and calculated fields. Filtering won't be synchronised though, so you may want to either automate that with macros or use formaulas to check for bas...

Double clicking in a Pivot Table, Please HELP
Hi! You know when you double clik in a field in a pivot table it shrinks down and everything right to that field isn't visible any more, only the total of that field which you double clicked is visible.

Pivot Table Sort Issue
Hi Using Excel 2003 and the field Month (Jan....Dec), moved into the Row area. Been working fine (special month sort order) for months. Now the months do now sort "correctly" (Jan....Dec), but sorts Jan...Dec with May and Jun in the last 2 positions. All other 10 months sort correctly. ? thanks, Gene:) Maybe its a data issue -- text dates/real dates ? Check the recent data.

The ever annoying tables... Lock column width?
Trying to do up a catalog in Pub XP. I'm trying to put all the products into columns but when I shrink the table from the right all the columns shrink accordingly. I'm trying to fix column widths to fit a certain area, and this is really screwing me up. Why don't the columns in Publisher work the same as FrontPage? I will have to settle on text boxes, but that is an annoyance. Marc Place your cursor on a cell line, it will change into the re-sizer cursor. Fool around long enough and you will get the hang of it. Publisher is a breeze compared to FrontPage. -- Mary Saue...

multiplication table
is there a way to automaticly fill in a multiplication table? In Cells A2 to A13 I have 1, 2, 3...11,12. I then have 1 in B1, 2 in C1, 3 in D1, etc. Or in other words, numbers 1-12 going down column A (starting at A2) and numbers 1-12 going across row 1 (starting at B1). Is there a way to fill this entire thing in with one formula and dargging? I know "=A$2*B1" will work for the entire row, but not the whole table. Thanks guys, Robbi =$A2*B$1 will work for the whole table. On Wed, 2 Mar 2005 20:21:02 -0800, "Robbi777" <

My objects are disappearing!
As soon as I draw an object in my chart and click off it, it vanishes. I know there was someone else with this same problem and it sort of resolved itself when she re-booted. This has been going on for me for months and I reboot every day. I go to Format Autoshape and it appears as if White is selected in the Fill and Line color boxes. I change that to a different color (e.g. blue) but as soon as I select that color and the color selection box collapses again, it shows white again. When I click on the drop down arrow to reselect the color, it shows that the color is already selecte...

Querying a Linked table
Hi: I am trying to do this: SELECT * FROM MySybaseLinkedTable WHERE dtDateTimeField > (SELECT MAX(dtDateTimeField) FROM MyAccessTable) When I run this query without the subselect and manually put the date in like #5/26/2007# then the query comes back immediately.

Copying excel chart to word document without gridlines
I would like to capy an excel chart to a word document and not have gridlines show up in the word doc. The chart has a .tif header attached and the antire thing will need to be resized bacause I am going from a landscape format in excel to a portrait format in word. Both excel and word are 2003 versions. Make the chart in Excel as close to the way it must look in Word. This means remove gridlines, and size it to fit. Sizing is easier for an embedded chart, if it's going over as a picture. - Jon ------- Jon Peltier, Microsoft Excel MVP Tutorials and Custom Solutions Peltier Technic...

Should Globally Needed Objects be Members in Main Frame, Application, or be Global?
I have been making objects needed by my entire application members either the Main Frame ( main window derived from CMDIFrameWnd ) or the Application (derived from CWinApp ). To get to these members I use either GetMainWnd() or AfxGetApp() to get pointers I can access them with. Now I wonder if there is any reason not to make these objects global so the use of GetMainWnd() or AfxGetApp() can be dispensed with. What are the the relative merits of putting objects needed globally for the duration of program execution in these three places? I typically create a singleton or static class...
