Hi all, One of the most annoying "features" in excel has been that excel only recognizes the function names in the language the excel is for. I myself have Finnish (language from Finland) excel at home and English excel at work. Now you can believe the mess I'm in when I have used excel at work whole day using english functions and start to use excel at home. That's just not very convinient. Is there any way to enable i.e. Finnish excel to understand standard english functions? Is there even a reference list out there where I could check what any given english function nam...

Wondering if someone would be able to help me with this: A B C Year Year Service 01-Sep-89 30-Jun-10 = 21 Years Teachers From September 1, 1989 to June 30, 1990 = 1 Year of Service. I know it only 10 months, but that is their year. Is there a formula that could caculate the number of years from September 1, 1989 to June 30, 2010. -- Newfie The general formula for years between dates is =Year(latest date) - Year(earlier date) and 2010-1989 = 21 years.

im a teenager trying to do a project for school on excel. i need to re-do my grade history sheet on excel. this is fine, i've done it all, and i'm fine on that part. where i'm lost at is the points part. the thing is for every class i have a grade. for every grade there are points (A=4, B=3, C=2, D=1, F=0). that and also, if one of my classes is honors gifted, a bit higher in level, you get an extra point (A=5, B=4, C=3, D=2, F=1). and if you're in an AP class, advanced placement, it's 2 more points (A=6, etc.). what i need to know is a formula so that whatever grade...

Hello, I am looking for ideas on how to cycle count serial number tracked items without increasing workload. Our serialized items are barcoded but the problem is the are situated on the pallet incorrectly and the pallet is placed on a third level of a racking system. If we could just cycle count based on item count and not include the serial number it would make it easy. Is this possible in Great Plains. We are running Great Plains 8.0.

Hello - When I copy and paste a formula into a new column, Excel assumes that I wanted to use references to different columns. That is, each time that I want to copy and paste a formula into a new column, or sheet, I have to either first make it an absolute reference---or I have to paste it into Word, and then paste it into Excel to keep it as the same formula. Does anyone know if there is an easier way to paste a formula so that the reference doesn't change, and the formula thus stays the same? Thanks!! One way is to copy it *from the formula bar*! Click in the cell containing the fo...

One formula is: =SUM(C10:C15) another: =SUM(O16/6363) another: =SUM(C19:C36) these same formulas work in the cells right next to these wit different cell references. However, no matter which cell I put th above formulas in, the result is the same - either blank with a dash i the cell or zero. I checked all the cells that the formulas refer t and none has any errors. -Jorda -- kalik24 ----------------------------------------------------------------------- kalik247's Profile: http://www.excelforum.com/member.php?action=getinfo&userid=1594 View...

Hi, I know this is a long shot, but I'm hoping SOMEBODY has the answer.... I need to create a power point presentation that links to an excel workbook. The reason I need to link it is because the numbers will change monthly, and the presentation is distributed monthly. So, I need to create a presentation that will: 1) have excel worksheets in it that link to defined ranges in a workbook. 2) HOPEFULLY have the Pow.Pt. worksheet appear as a bitmap (if not thats ok) 3) allow the Pow.Pt. SS (or the picture) to link to the SS so that the image will change every month. I know it'...
