You could use something simple like:


where A1 = part width, B1 = part length, C1 = sheet width, 
D1 = sheet length. Of course this does not take into 
account any unique cutting patterns that minimize scrap. 
It's assumes simple grid pattern cutting.

That is how far I got. The issue with the scrap. I figure the way to g
is subtract the area used by the parts by the area of the sheet. The
take the difference and calculate the yield again. However, puttin
that all down in a formula is confusing. Little help

Pasting Table Info from Word to Excel
Using Office 2003. I have created a table in Word where the first column is address information on 3 lines in one cell (Name, Address, City State Zip) Before going further with this Word table, I decided I really wanted to track the information in Excel.

It keeps pasting into three cells (i.e. A1 gets the name, A2 gets the address, A3 gets the city state zip).

Using Regular expressions in Excell 2007
I have code written in excell 2003 where I use Regular Expressions 'heavily'. In Excell 2003 you had to import the RegExp library to be able to use it.

dynamic chart on user selected data range in Excel 2007
I am trying create a chart 'on the fly' based on the user selected data range in Excel 2007. I was trying to use Jon Peltier's 'interactive chart creation' VB scripts.

I tried to click 'ok', but it only selected the input box. I hope Jon or some one else can see this and offer some help. Thank you all very much for your tips. This worked fine in a test I just ran.

Link excel 2007 chart formatting
Is there any way to link the chart appearance as well as the values when I do a copy and paste of a chart in excel from one workbook to another? Currently the values change automatically but if I change the chart style in the source chart the destination charts don't get this. The other alternative is to link the chart through OLE but excel does not seem to allow me to link it under paste special (it is greyed out) unlike the other office apps (word, powerpoint).

Excel 2007
One of the features that I have often used in previous versions of Excel is having a control (e.g., a spin button) in a chart. Obviously, the control would be linked to the spreadsheet from which the chart gets its data. I cannot get this to work in Excel 2007. I am using the B2TR. When I try to put the control on the chart, I get a status bar message that says to click and drag, but nothing happens. Have they eliminated this functionality? I really hope not, since this is very valuable for presentations in my finance classes. Thanks Tim - I didn't test this very thoroughly. I do...

Special pasting Charts from Excel to Word (2007 versions)

Moderate newbie - entering data in a panel
I'm reasonably proficient in standard Excel data entry. My project is to enter daily sales data, and produce a series of charts showing progress metrics.

What I'd like to do is open a form asking for the date, sales, hours worked, and a few other items, then plug them into the appropriate place. At present I have no reference books, though I've ordered the Excel 2003 Bible. Can someone guide me to an onl...

Excel 2003 =now() is returning wrong time on terminal server
