XL 2007 Custom Views
Hi again. I have been learning how to use the Custom Views... pretty
straight forward except that I have a mental block about the Print Settings
option. If this feature is de-selected, what is the impact? I cannot see
any difference between a custom view which has this feature enabled versus
one which has it disabled.
Can anyone enlighten me? All help is always appreciated.
I am not aware if you are trying to ask questions about the Print Preview or
the Custom View.
The only thing that Custom View does is save viewing properties (such as

Hello - I have a large table that I am trying to create some custom
views for. However, when I go to View, Custom Views........the Custom
Views option is grayed out.
I read that you cannot use Custom views for an "excel list", but I
have converted the list back to a normal range, so I don't think that
is the problem.
Does anyone know what other reasons may exist, as to why I am unable
to select custom views?
Thanks for any suggestions.
Perhaps you have more than one sheet selected?

What used to be called a "Custom view" is really nothing more than a saved
search. If you use Edit> Advanced Search you'll find the dialog & method
described on the web page matches almost identically.
You can also customize the built-in views. See Entourage Help on the topic:

I have created a custom view for a folder based on a custom form and
published it for others in our organization to use and it works fine.
However, if a user re-sorts one of the columns and then tries to restore the

I am trying to setup a custom view for Accounts using a filter that
dynamically reads that particular users business unit. Can you use dynamic
CRM values as part of the filter statement?
Any insight is greatly appreciated.
you cannot do this. I recommend you build a report instead. One way to do
this would be to add a custom field on the account form where you or users
enter the business unit. The view could then see that. The problem is the
business unit is tied to the user which a search on accounts will not see.

...how do I protect cells in custom views?
I've created multiple custom views of a worksheet and then tried to protect
portions of the original sheet by unlocking and then invoking worksheet

appear when I click on "show".

the workbook and protected them my views no longer work.

column formatting by users when protected. In individual

I presume that you want just a few columns protected and the rest of th
