data tables #4

I have a data table with column headers (U - Z) and row headers (A - E), I 
would like to enter the two headers, e.g. V and E and find the number that 
corresponds to those cell references within the table.  Can anyone tell me 
what I should be using in Excel to do this ?  I am using Office 2003

I am not sure I understand your question, but let me take a stab at it.

For example:

A    B    C    D     E 
25  16  44  36   28 
U      14  21  18  52   6     
V        7  33  25  18   21
W     19  37  26  88   16

If this is what you are describing, then use a Index function.

=INDEX(Range of cells,Cell you want to enter V, Cell you want to ente

Hope this helps!

Thank you, I'll check Index's this evening.  I'd have used Microsoft Help but 
it is only useful if you know what you're looking for!

Count Instances in a table field
Here's a little background on my database. I have a form with a couple of buttons that I have grayed out when the database is empty. These buttons open a print preview of a couple of reports. I would like to ungray these buttons only when there is at least one record with a "CA" entry in the State field in my main table. How do I do this? Forms display data from tables. I'm not understanding why you'd want a form to enable (ungray) a button if ANY record has a "CA" entry. Wouldn't you want to ungray the form if the record DISPLAYED had &q...

Difficulty Aligning Series Data With Proper Dates
I ‘m building a column graph using Excel 2007 and I’m having difficulty aligning a series of data with the proper dates. I have 2 series of data – Series 1: Includes a value for each quarter in 2009 (e.g., Mar-09, Jun-09, etc). Series 2: Includes a value for each quarter in 2010 (e.g., Mar-10, Jun-10, etc). After creating each series, I select the appropriate dates (Series 1 – 2009 dates / Series 2 – 2010 dates). The first issue that I’m having is that when I select the second set of dates (for Series 2), it overrides the first – so the x-axis initially shows 2009 dates, but then ...

Pivot table samples/tutorial
Hi all :-) Excel 2003 - Windows XP Pro SP2 I am in need of some samples or a tutorial on how to create a Pivot table. I have worked with many areas of Excel, but, I have never had call to create a Pivot table, and the Help files are not exactly totally clear. I am trying to prepare some reference materials for a presentation I will be giving on the various Office programs, and would like to be able to include some good material for the Pivot table for Excel as well. I would truly appreciate any suggestions or references that might be available for download or linked to. Jan :) MS MVP...

export public folder data?
Am in the process of performing an Alternate server recovery of an Exchange 2003 Information Store. The reason being that on the current server all the email has dissappeared from the public folder mail folders...its a very strange situation indeed. Hoping that by restoring an earlier backup to a different machine we can see if the emails will return. If they do, is there a way I could export the contents of these folders back into the current info store? I gather that Exmerge will only work on Mailboxes and not Public Folders...

Selecting specific data #2
Hi everyone I have another little problem. I have got a list of 20 items on sheet1, Cells A1 - A20 (numbered 1 - 20) and Cells B1 - B20 are items relating to that number, ie, number 1 = Concrete, number 2 = walls, and so on. Now on sheet 2 I have a table, again cell range A1:B20. I would like to know a formula so that when I enter a number in to column A, the corresponding item to that number appears in column B. ie, if I enter number 8 in Cell A1 on sheet 2, then I would like Floor to appear in Cell B1.

data file: how to start its application
Hello! I have a byte array in memory for a file and also its filename (actually a mail attachment). Now I want to "open" this file. In case of a "*.doc" file I have to find the association (winword), run that program and give it a path to my memory or something like that. I think the simplest way to achieve this is to save the data into a temp file (GetTempPath + actual file name, overwriting any previous one), and then running RunCmd somehow and Windows knows what to do. I know how to write the file, but a RunCmd command doesn't exist or I haven't found some...
