cells of varied length extract last 3 digits

each cell in a column ends with "Program ###".  I would like to create a 
column with just the ###. Where ### represents varied digits.
Thanks

Use the formula for retreiving the last three characters / digits from a 
particular cell.

For Retrieving Last Three Text Characters from a cell
=TRIM(RIGHT(A1,3))

For Retrieving Last Three Numeric Values from a cell
=--TRIM(RIGHT(A1,3))

Change the cell reference to your desired cell, if required.

A1 = text program 001

Your formulas return 1.

If you want the number extracted as a numeric number and to retain the 3
digit format then you'll have to use a custom number format like 000 to
display the leading 0s. Note that when doing this the leading 0s are for
display purposes only. The true value of the cell will be numeric 1.

sorting error on non-merged cells
Excel 2002, WinXp Home My spreadsheet has columns for Number, Date, Text, etc. When I select a column to sort, Excel expands the selection to include all cells (as it should).

What size is the error refering to (# of characters, absolute value, ?)? How do I un-merge non-merged cells so I can sort?

Finding combinations of cells that sum to near a value
Starting with a column of ~30 numbers, I'm looking for a way to have Excel find all combinations that sum to a target value +/- a specified range width. (For example, I may be looking for all combinations that sum to 1000 +/- 10.) I've found some code from Tushar Mehta that finds a list of all possible matches that sum to a number, but it doesn't allow me to put in a range to find sums to within a delta of this value. I tried modifying the code to add this in, but I couldn't get it to work right. Here is the code: http://www.tushar-mehta.com/excel/templates/match_values/index....

Do Not Want to count blank Cells
I copy pasted an Access dynaset (e.g., results of a crosstab query) into an Excel spreadsheet. I tried to use the function =counta(a4:z4) to count the number of entries (nonblank) in row 4. But the result is giving me 26 because it is counting blank cells. Is there a way to count the entries without counting the blanks or a way to easily reformat or change the blank cells so the formula will not count the blanks.

increase cell character limit
Hi all, Simple question that is driving me crazy. I'm making a table containing text and numbers. One of the cells in this table has 1459 characters. For some reason, the last couple sentences won't fill the bottom of the cell; instead, they're cut off. I can only see them if I increase the column width, but I don't want to do that since it'll complicate other things (readability, etc). So, how do I get all the text/characters to display in this cell? Thanks -- Weissme ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Weissme's Profile:...
