the formula to show NA?

If there were, would we settle for using NA()? We've been asking for 
something better for several versions of Excel.

There are two options: use NA() in the formula, or delete the formula

That's what I thought, but I figured I'd take a shot at someone having a 
slick work around.  I guess NA is the slick work around.

Sounds like Microsoft is as reseptive to changing the headaches as Autodesk 

Thanks for the help.

Can a zoom in/out chart be made? #2
How can I make a chart which can be zoomed in or out using the mouse or a button Ram, One method would be to use macros. You would add a user form with a scrollbar to your spreadsheet. The scrollbar would zoom the sheet and in turn zoom the chart. To do so, create a new code module and call it “Module1”. Add this code to the module: Sub ShowForm() UserForm1.Show End Sub Go to the sheet where your chart resides. Add a button to that sheet via the Forms toolbar that will activate the scroll form described below. Attach the macro above to that button. Next, create a new use...

CSV file dropping lead zeros
I have a CSV/Txt file that I am opening and I tell it that it is tab delimited. I find that my first columns, that have numbers in them, are dropping the leading 0's. I don't want that.

If you have to reimport into excel, you can rename the .csv file to .txt. Then when you open the text file, you'll see the data|text to columns wizard. You can specify the format of each field--including Tex...
