Inserting Columns in Excel
Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard)
When I select a column or columns to enabalize inserting additional columns, nothing happens. I can't get columns to insert in either the page layout view or the normal view. Why is something so simple not working? All I get is a little paintbrush icon that wants me to decide if I want the formatting of the adjacent column or not. Please help, it can't be that hard!
No offense, but my guess is that you're misinterpreting the feature &
perhaps using it on a blank sheet. The command does not increase...How to get a long column of numbers to wrap and print on 1 page?
I have a long column of numbers that we add to daily. This column needs to
be sorted in ascending order and then printed. I don't know of a way to sort
multiple columns together so that is why it is one long column. Is there a
way to get it to print as multiple columns across a page so as to not have
numerous pages with only 1 column on each?
take a look here:

I have a pivot table that gives me the number of rides done by a van. I can
have the pivot table return the number of rides, but what I need is the
number vans that participated for a certain day. Example, it is possible to
have 27 trips done by 18 vans, how can I count the number of vans and not
addup the van number?
Any help appreciated.

If we could just cycle count based on item count

We want to put such a protection to the sheet that, the

This is possible only through a macro, for example:

This setting does not get saved with the workbook, so it must be reset by
running this macro each time the workbook is opened.

You can't. The InputBox doesn't have that capability.
You can create a form that has a text box with the appropriate Password
Input Mask, and have it pass the value back to your originating form.

Use 4 separate fields, put contraints so that none of them can exceed 9999,

Use the query wherever you would otherwise have used the table.
