#### Data transfer problem

```I am working on a project that deals with two sets of information.  M
first set of information includes:

A list of all the state abbreviations in the first column, the secon
column has prices.

E.X.  AL (A1), AR (A2)  ....and so on all the way through the 5
states.
EX.  \$1.14(B1), \$1.20(B2)

ex--so AL has a price of \$1.14, \$AR has a price of 1.2 and so on...

My second set of information includes:
A list of state abbreviations, out of alphabetical order.

I want to be able to merge these two sets of information around th
prices.  I do not want to go through the list and find each A
abbreviation and have to type in \$1.14,

I was wondering if there was a way to run a function that would sca
the second set of information for AL, since it is listed multipl
times, unlike the first set of information.  Once it finds AL, I wan
it to match it up with it's correct price aka \$1.14

***(i can't sort the second set of information into alphabetical orde
because it needs to stay in the orignal order it came in

```If your data is in a column, maybe you could use a helper column and drag a
formula down.

Say your state/price stuff is in A:B of sheet1.
Your states are in column A of Sheet2.

Then put this in a helper cell:
=vlookup(a1,sheet1!\$a:\$b,2,false)
And drag it down.

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 ...

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...
