I have just installed Office pro 2003 (don't like 2007) and since that time, when I boot up, instead of going straight to the desktop the bootup stops at the screen where it asks me to click on the user I wish to log on as. Since there is only me using this computer, I wish for this scree to appear. I did get rid of it a long time ago but just cant remember how to do it. Any ideas.
Secondly - Whilst using Excel - When I attache a coments box in a cell, I want to be able to place a comments box in each cell of the same column. I have done this before but can't remember this either. The obvious answer I though was to click on the cell with the comments box and then copy to each cell down the column. This doesn't work.
Comments to cells in Office 2003, so should be ok in 2007. Select the cell you want to use, click on New Comment button on Auditing toolbar,( if not installed, add the toolbar ) type your comment. When you add a comment your name/a name appears in bold type at top of comment box. You can specify also what goes here by choosing Tools, Options, clicking General tab and typing what you want to appear into the User Name edit box. Try also searching in the help box of Excel for "Adding comments to cells".
Nuts - Thanks for your help also but I know how to put a comment box into a cell. My question was, having placed the comments box in a cell, how to copy the facility into all the other cells in a given row so that I don't have to manually put a comment box into each of the cells. As you can imagine, that would be very time consuming.
Do you want an identical comment to be in each cell? If so, you could use data validation. Data>Data Validation. Just use the 'Input Message' section without setting any validationn rules, you can then click and drag this down your column. It will display comment when any of those cells are selected.
If you just want to copy/paste standard cell comments, just copy initial cell containing required comment, highlight the destination range and right click mouse and select 'Paste special' and 'Comments' from list. Hope that helps.
DieSse - I did as suggested and I no longer get the Welcome screen. However I now get a small screen come up asking me for my password. Any ideas as to how I dissable this. All I want is to go straight to my desktop when I boot up.
