Pruning tips

"When you right click certain files, you'll see a selection to "open with," and when you click it, you'll see a list of programs to choose from. You can remove some of the applications from this list if you will never use them to open this type of file, or you can clear the list completely, by editing the registry.
  1. Open the registry editor.
    (Start>Run Regedit will do it)
  2. Go to the following key: HKEY CURRENT USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts
  3. Scroll down the list of file extensions to the one for which you want to edit or clear the list.
  4. Click the + to expand OpenWithList
  5. In the right pane, you should see a list of programs (for example, Word.exe, notepad.exe, etc.).

Jagged Text on Chart

Animation problem

"The text in a graph may appear jagged and less defined if you apply a custom animation to a Microsoft Graph chart object in a Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2003 slide show. The affected text includes the axis text, the legend text, and other text labels.

This problem occurs because PowerPoint 2003 converts the various graph elements to screen-resolution bitmaps. Therefore, PowerPoint 2003 can independently animate the graph elements during a slide show. If the graph elements are converted without a background color applied to them, the text appears jagged."

Some solutions:
  • Apply a background color to the chart area
  • Apply a background color to the graph elements
  • Change the color of the graph font to white

Data Comparison

No formulas

The Data Consolidation technique allows you to compare lists quickly and easily.

With the Consolidation technique, you can identify the number of duplicate entries in two or more lists without using a formula.
(not that it's easier, just that there are no formulas)


In the sheet there are two lists: List 1 is in column A (in cells A2:A10), and List 2 is in column C (in cells C2:C10).

  1. In Cell B1 type "List number".
  2. In Cells B2:B10, enter the number 1.
  3. In Cells D2:D10, enter the number 2.
  4. Cut Cells C2:D10 and paste them into Cell A11.
  5. Press Ctrl+*, then press Ctrl+F3, and enter a name for the list (such as Compare).
  6. Select cell D4 or another worksheet.
  7. From the Data menu, select Consolidate.
  8. Select Count as the Function.
  9. In the Reference box, press F3 and paste the Name you defined for the list.
  10. Click Add.
  11. Select both Top row and Left column "Use labels in" checkboxes.
  12. Click OK.

The numbers appears in Column B are the totals of the list number in Column B. If the result = 1, the name appears in List 1 and does not appear in List 2. If the result = 2, the name appears in List 2 and does not appear in List 1. If the result = 3, the name appears in both lists (1+2=3). The action is not dynamic, so if you make changes, the Consolidation must be rerun.

Forward My Email

Let it follow you around

By using a rule that you create, Outlook can examine each message that you receive for certain characteristics and then automatically forward or redirect any message that matches the characteristics to another email account.

There are a couple of ways of doing it: forwarding and redirecting.

Message forwarding
When a rule automatically forwards a message you receive, it leaves a copy of the message in your Inbox or in the folder to which the message was originally delivered. The rule then adds the designation "FW:" to the beginning of the Subject line, changes the message formatting, and then forwards the message to the account specified by the rule. The recipient represented by the account also sees that the message came from you.
Message redirection
When a rule automatically redirects a message you receive, it also leaves a copy in your Inbox or in the folder to which the message was originally delivered. The rule then sends the message, unchanged, to the account specified by the rule. To the recipient, the message appears as though it came directly from the original sender. There is no indication that the message was delivered by way of your account.

Free Fonts

More choices

Windows no longer has a maximum number of fonts that can be installed. (Windows Me and before was limited to about 1000 or 64 KB.) The problem is that your machine will slow down if you go overboard. It's better to install the most used typefaces, and then move the fonts into and out of the C:\Windows\Fonts or C:\WINNT\Fonts folder.

Here's one site that provides over 5,000 fonts. You can enter a short piece of text to see what it will look like:
"The fonts presented on this website are their authors' property, and are either freeware, shareware, demo versions or public domain, most of the time for non-commercial use. Look at the readme-files in the archives or check the indicated authors' website for details, and contact him if in doubt."

Free Fonts

6-17-2005 - Bill Reid comments:
"One little known fact about Windows' font handling. You don't necessarily have to move fonts into the Fonts directory to make them usable. If you store extra fonts in another directory, you can double click it, bringing up a dialog that demonstrates the font's usage. If you open your application at this point, it will recognize the font as being installed."

Make Null Zero

It's nothing

When it is desirable to return a zero (or another value) rather than an empty field, Access (Visual Basic) has a function Nz():

Nz(variant, [valueifnull])

The Nz function has the following arguments.

A variable of data type Variant. Optional (unless used in a query). A Variant that supplies a value to be returned if the variant argument is Null. This argument enables you to return a value other than zero or a zero-length string.

This example demonstrates how you can simplify an IIF function

Instead of:

varTemp = IIf(IsNull(varFreight), 0, varFreight)
varResult = IIf(varTemp > 50, "High", "Low")

You could use:

varResult = IIf(Nz(varFreight) > 50, "High", "Low")

Helen Feddema offers a suggestion about forcing a zero when Nz() doesn't work

When you want to display zeroes in text boxes (or datasheet columns) when there is no value in a field, the standard method is to surround the value with the Nz() function, to convert a Null value to a zero. However, this doesn't always work, especially in Access 2003, which is much more data type-sensitive than previous versions. In these cases, you can force a zero to appear instead of a blank by using two functions: first Nz() and then the appropriate numeric data type conversion function, such as CLng or CDbl. Here is a sample expression that will yield a zero when appropriate:

NoAvailable: CLng(Nz([QuantityAvailable]))

Secret SS Information

What's on your card?

There's data encoded in your Social Security number! (not a lot, but some).
You can tell in what state the card was issued:

"The first three (3) digits of a person's social security number are determined by the ZIP Code of the mailing address shown on the application for a social security number. Prior to 1973, social security numbers were assigned by field offices. The number merely established that his/her card was issued by one of the offices in that State."

Social Security Number Allocations

If you're an employer, you can verify if the number is valid:
Social Security Number Verification
(There are three types of cards)

Here are some stories about Social Security :

" The most misused SSN of all time was (078-05-1120). In 1938, wallet manufacturer the E. H. Ferree company in Lockport, New York decided to promote its product by showing how a Social Security card would fit into its wallets. A sample card, used for display purposes, was inserted in each wallet. Company Vice President and Treasurer Douglas Patterson thought it would be a clever idea to use the actual SSN of his secretary, Mrs. Hilda Schrader Whitcher.

The wallet was sold by Woolworth stores and other department stores all over the country. Even though the card was only half the size of a real card, was printed all in red, and had the word "specimen" written across the face, many purchasers of the wallet adopted the SSN as their own. In the peak year of 1943, 5,755 people were using Hilda's number. SSA acted to eliminate the problem by voiding the number and publicizing that it was incorrect to use it. (Mrs. Whitcher was given a new number.) However, the number continued to be used for many years. In all, over 40,000 people reported this as their SSN. As late as 1977, 12 people were found to still be using the SSN "issued by Woolworth."


Other things on the site include:

Slider puzzles
(Including such luminaries as: Otto von Bismarck, Frances Perkins, and Arthur Altmeyer )

Both Nixon and LBJ recorded conversations in their offices. The SSA has some of them you can listen to about SS matters:

"The legibility of a typeface should not be evaluated on its ability to generate a good word shape.

Word shape is no longer a viable model of word recognition. The bulk of scientific evidence says that we recognize a word's component letters, then use that visual information to recognize a word. In addition to perceptual information, we also use contextual information to help recognize words during ordinary reading, but that has no bearing on the word shape versus parallel letter recognition debate.

Circular solution

You can't have a worksheet formula that looks like this:


But you can do something similar if you use VBA and store the results in another location.

Microsoft Support:
Create a running total in a cell comment

The macro runs each time the value of a cell changes.
It adds the current value of the cell to the value of the cell comment. Then it stores the new total in the cell comment.

I'm sure someone can come up with other uses for this macro.

Database Basics

Definition and explanation has information about every human endeavor.

Here is a piece that introduces Access and databases in general:
"If you're searching for a more flexible data management system, a database might be just the salvation you're looking for.

What is a database? Quite simply, it's an organized collection of data. A database management system (DBMS) such as Access, FileMaker Pro, Oracle or SQL Server provides you with the software tools you need to organize that data in a flexible manner. It includes facilities to add, modify or delete data from the database, ask questions (or queries) about the data stored in the database and produce reports summarizing selected contents.

Microsoft Access provides users with one of the simplest and most flexible DBMS solutions on the market today. Regular users of Microsoft products will enjoy the familiar Windows "look and feel" as well as the tight integration with other Microsoft Office family products.
