Today Conditional Format
I have a column which calculated a date based on 3 working days from a date
input into a diff column. What I want to do I have the calculated date
appear bold if that date has passed based on the current date.
For example if I input 01/08/11 the next column calculates 04/08/11 (3
working days). I want the caluclated date to appear bold when I open the
spreadsheet on the 05/08/11 ro show the calculated date has passed.
I can use conditional formatting but can't get the syntax right

I'm using the US version of Excel 2003, but need to format costs, etc., for a

That currency format isn't offered in my dialog box, and if I make a custom
number format that will display correctly, it doesn't operate as a number.

I have a range of cells spanning multiple columns and rows. I would
like, in my fantasy, to just hightlight all of them and say "multiply
by x" where x is an integer. Now, I know I can't do that because my
microphone doesn't work, so, other then a macro, is there a way to do
In an unused cell enter the numnber that you want to multiply by - it can be
an integer or a floating point number - then highlight the range to you want
to mutiply and then right-click and select Paste Special > Multiply > Ok
Don't forget to say "Multipy by x"...Need help with conditional formula (Excel 97)

Being in the UK, I obviously want to use the English(UK) date format, so
Christmas Day is 25/12/05 rather than 12/25/05. However, this defaults
the time format to hh/mm/ss (why, I do not know, since I can assure
American readers we're not normally that precise), so I have to reset it
English(US) to get hh/mm, which resets the default date format to
mm/dd/yy, so I have to change it back the next time I want to format a
cell as a date.
Any way round this? It's only a minor problem but it's irritating me.

I have 2 CF conditions associated with a cell (C14), one of which is:
Formula is =OR($C$4="Fred SOMEBODY",C14<>"10:30:00")

value in the 'formula window' is actually 10:30:00.

How can you add a blank line or bottom margin in a cell to seperate the rows
for printing? In Word it is called a cell margin.
You can increase the rowheight by selecting a cell in that row and then:
and making it larger.
You could also add an alt-enter as the last character in that cell.
(might be messy if you're working with numeric values, though)

We have a pretty intense Excel Workbook that we use on a daily bases.
We are currently running MS 2007 but this Workbook is running in
97-2003 because we just changed over about 6 months ago. The issue is
that in the past week the this file keeps losing it format. Can't seem
to figure out why.

there. Thanks in advance to all who try to help.
