Thanks.

Is there a limit to how far excel will search a list for autocomplete?
Auto complete doesn't work for my entire list of 4200 rows. List has no empty cells, sorted alphabetically and all upper case. Is there something wrong with my list or is there a limit to the list length? Yes, I did some investigations some years ago and discovered that there were limits, but I can't remember what they were and I haven't been able to retrieve the post with the details in. Hope this helps. Pete On Feb 10, 9:09=A0pm, Bluejay <fi...@comcast.net> wrote: > Auto complete doesn't work for my entire list of 4200 rows. =A0List has > no empty cells, sor...

Using Excel to analyze HTML
I can't get Excel 2000 or Word 2000 to let me paste HTML code without displaying the code as a webpage. Is there a setting I can turn off somewhere to get Excel and Word to be less presumptuous and let me work with HTML without displaying it, in weak attempts at being WYSIWYG HTML editors?

Custom Functions and Excel Add-in.
I am using Excel 2002 (SR-2), but the problem occurs in 97 as well. I have created an Add-in (xla file) that contains numerous functions. Some of these functions are used directly by a number of workbooks to insert a value in a cell. For example, Cell A1 has the following formula '=getProduct()', where the getProduct() is a function in my add-in. My problem arises from the fact that my add-in and workbooks are distributed within the company and our clients. Why is it a problem, well, unless the add-in is in the same directory as the workbooks, or located in the same directory on e...

Excel Workbook
Hello I have an Excel Workbook that has been sent to me by email. At the moment it only has column headings on 10 different worksheets with no data as yet. For some reason it is showing as being 5Mb but has no data! The only thing that looks out of place is that a couple of the worksheets seem to have 25000 rows active. This makes the scroll bar very small. Could this be what is making the workbook very large? If so, is there any way of 'dis-activating' these rows/cells?

Opening New Excel file closes the Existing One Automatically
Hi! I've got a few templates that we use in our office. We'd frequently create standard workbooks from these templates: We had a shortcut insid the task pane which we click to cerate a new one from the standard template, fill it with data. At the point JUST BEFORE IT'S BEING SAVED (or have a filename), if we open another existing workbook (created from the same template and saved on disk), it would open and Excel would closes the UNSAVED copy without even prompting us to save. This is costing us a lot of time but looking inside the macros of the template, I've not e...

Lost functionality in Excel 2007
Hello, I often make scatter charts within Excel and I like to add trendlines to these charts, with the equations and associated R^2 values. With previous versions of Excel I could increase the precision of the equations using the "Increase Decimal" function in the toolbar. This has handy when one didn't want to manually recalculate the trendline to access reasonably precise values for the trendline. I tried to do this with Excel '07 and it doesn't work. I know this is a minor example, but has anyone run across any other lost functionalities in Excel, or indeed anywhere in...

4.25 X 5.5 page layout (4 up/4 dn) booklet printing
Hi - I am using the greeting card fold template in Pub '03 and attempting to create a 100+ page booklet. I wish to print the pages in a fashion that allows me to use 13 or 14 pieces of paper per booklet (each sheet produces 8 pages using both sides). I saw the post about the person printing 4 of the same page per side of each sheet, but that would force a run of 100+ booklets per printing with my page count -NoCanDo.

How can I edit cell contents with a macro in Excel?
I'm trying to creat an Excel macro that edits cell data, remembering the edits, not just the resulting value or formula. If, for example, I want to delete all but the last three characters of a cell value, and I record a macro, editing the cell produces a line like: ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "745". But I don't want the specific value. I want the process. I'm essentially asking for RIGHT(R1C1,3), but I can't use that formula in the macro because it would be a circular reference. What am I missing? Those same kind of functions are built into VBA: Option Exp...

how do you pass the prove it test for Microsoft Excel?
I applied for a job in a clerical position and they made me take a prove it test for MS Excel and Office? Is there a link on how I can practice this test and retake it so I can pass the prove it test? I would imagine the test was designed in-house by the company to which you applied. There is no standard "prove it test" for Office and Excel other than the MOUS exams. MOUS = Microsoft Office User Specialist Search the 'net for MOUS exam or certification.
