Pivot table or Macro?
I was asked to manage space in many warehouses. I have was wondering
if I was better of using Pivot tables or Excel Macros. Someone must of
gone through the same situation. I have to say that I am more familiar
with coding macro programs but I am open about learning more on Pivot
table! (or both). Any suggestions regarding this matter?
You really need to explain what "manage space" entails. This just really
isn't enough info to supply a meaningful answer.

I have been reading this group for a while, however I am quite a
rookie in using of excel. I would appreciate if someone could help
with this issue.
I quite often have to compare two sheets (from different
workbooks-files, but with the same sheet name). Calculations are thus
updated time by time and I need to check where were the main
differences. Cells contain both values and formulas. I have found
through this newsgroup nice add-ins of Myrna Larson and Bill Manville,

Thanks a lot!
Just select the whole table
I'd clean up all the stuff I needed to first. (removing subtotals is easier
while it's still a pivottable.)
And just a hint.
Copy that worksheet with the pivottable first. Then when you screw up the
formatting, you can start over with the already existing pivottable--you don't
have to start from scratch.

One of the workbooks came from a different source and the other one is a

I need to find out whether the workbook from out of the company has got any

I am using Microsoft Excel 97 and am fairly new at this so please be gentle.
One way I did think was to combine the two workbooks into one and find the
duplicates but thought there may be another way.

You will need a foreign key in the Notes table that tells you, for every row
in the notes table, which is the row in the main table that the note belongs
You need to extract both the notes and the PK of the record for each note.

I have two columns of numbers column A could be up to 3500 rows. Column B

highlight it in both columns. Actually I would want to be able to sort by

I hope this makes sense.

In another database program I've used for years, you could set up a

2 choices, "Corporate" and Individual", then the lookup table for Field B

words, if the user enters Corporate in Field A, then the corporate lookup
table would be available for Field B. And if the user entered Individual in
Field A, then the Individual lookup table would be available for Field B.
