Help: Formula put into entire row creates large file size
Hi, I have a spreadsheet where I would like one column to be the concatenation of two other columns. For example, in column C I would have =A1&B1. This excel file will be given to people and they will fill in values into columns A and B. The trick is, I don't know how many rows there will be, so I don't know how many rows in column C should have this formula. If I paste this formula into the entire column C, the excel file blows up to 3 megabytes. (It's only 15KB without this column). Are there ways for me to accomplish this more efficiently?

Ordering by number and text
I use a report to print out checklists that in the detail section have item number to delineate each checklist item. The item numbers as an example are 1-1, 1-2, 1-2a, 1-2b, or 2-1, 2-2, 2-3, 2-3a, 2-3b and so on. The report is grouped by checklist section and the grouping works perfectly but when the report is printed the item numbers are ordered in this order 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-2, 1-3, 1-3a, 1-3b, 1-4, 1-5, 1-6, 1-7, 1-9.

Frx NP rows and Excel export
In versions of Frx6.7 SP9 and lower when a column is made NP in Frx, when the report genrated is exported to Excel the NP column is not transferred to Excel.

Opening Text Files and Re-Saving Them

Wrap text in cell
It seems that wrap text and autofit row width and row height have a limit. Any idea where to change this limit? I have quite a large text in a cell and when I do wrap text and autofit, then parts of the text get cut of. The text is still there, but it is not shown in the cell and it is cut off when printing. You can enter 32767 characters in a cell. In Excel 2003 and earlier, only 1024 of these will be visible or printed. I believe Excel 2007 will show 8192 characters. If you add an Alt + Enter linefeed every 100 or so characters you can increase this 1024 limit. ...

Convert Decimal to Calendar Date
Hi all, I have tried to search in many places for this, but I usually find results for converting the other way round! What I want to do is to convert a decimal number representing months from now (say 8.7) to an actual calendar date (like 5 February 2010). I am working up a spreadsheet that shows how long it will take to pay my debts so the decimal figure will change frequently (as of course will todays date). I get the decimal from dividing total debt by monthly payment amount but it would be great to see an actual date. Could anyone please offer advice? Thanks. Andy. Does 8.7 mean 8.7...

internal margin around text in a cell
Hi, all... Within a cell (or the spreadsheet as a whole), is there a way to specify the width of the "internal margin"? I know this can be set for text boxes (separately for top, bottom, right, left), but I have found no reference in Help for doing this in a cell... Where I use a double-line border above a cell, the top of the text actually touches the border. For one column of cells, "Wrap text" is checked, so effective row height is variable from one row to the next. So far, I've managed by manually adjusting each row height and formatting the text to be &q...
