Cannot start the source application for this object #2

I added a .pdf file into an excel spreadsheet workbook. Whenever I try to 
open the file, I get an error message that say "
Cannot start the source application for this object". It will not let me 
open this Adobe Acrobat document. I do not have a problem opening the .pdf 
document by itself outside the excel spreadsheet.



Thanks,



Charlie

Formula query #2
I am trying to identify a formula which will add and then display th number of times a number appears in a range. For example, the range looks like this .......A...........B............C 1...1110......1110.......1114 2...1110..... 1111.......1111 3...1111......1112.......1110 4...1111......1113.......1111 The numbers which appear in the applicable range e.g. 1110, could b any number between 1110 and 9999 and as such I cannot simply predefin which number to look for. I am hoping the output could like as follows: .......A........B 1....1110....4 2....1111....5 3....1112....1 4.....

Need advice to start off a project
Hello! I have never really used Excel much but I have had an idea which could make some of the work I do a lot easier.

At the bottom there is a summary box which shows, on each date, how many visits I made of each type. At the moment this is done manually but I am sure it can be done automatically only how? On a different sheet I would then like to have a summary of...
