comment Excel IF Condition
To change the background color of a cell, you would use conditional formatting, rather than trying to use the IF() function in a cell formula.

comment How to stop Excel 97 from prompting that file was created with a later version
@pnuts: Are you referring to the file format... BIFF8 for Excel 97 - is that what that code outputs? Although if I have already saved it from Excel 97 then the file format has presumably been overwritten although there is still a flag in the file that indicates that a later version created it. I have had a quick look at the file using a hex editor, but I don't currently know enough about the file format to make any changes!

Thanks for the suggestion, although this doesn't work unfortunately. The warning prompt appears before the BeforeSave event fires.

comment Is it possible to disable the “alt” key as it is used for default windows things, but still have it functional as a modifier key inside a program?
If the Alt key is used as a modifier then that itself would usually prevent the default (menu) action from triggering? (Since the menu only gets focus on the release of the Alt key.) However, if there is a conflict then I'm not sure how you can disable one and not the other - after all, there is only one Alt key. I did just wonder if it was possible to disable menu shortcuts. But even without any menu shortcuts, a user can still hit the Alt key and use the cursor keys to step through the menu.

comment Cannot connect to Google sites in Firefox
@Synetech: If it was an issue with the ISP's caching/proxy then wouldn't all browsers be affected? I would have said the 200 tabs is most certainly a contributing factor. I have gone over 100 tabs before and found it unmanageable!
