Excel Text Function
Hi anyone who can help me...
I have some info in a spreadsheet as follows:
A1 B1 C1
Centra Dublin Centra Belfast Centra London
If I want to get just Centra out into another cell I would
use =LEFT(A1:C1,6) and this works fine. But I want to
actually get out the area - Dublin, Belfast or London and
some other areas that might have more or less than 7
letters. Any ideas???
Thanks in advance

"Ann&q...Very annoying behaviour of Excel 2003
Each time I am opening Excel, it is installing some component. This takes
several minutes, and becomes very annoying.
I recently had to reinstall XP and Office from the distribution CDs. I have
the problem since then. It certainly has something to do with the install.
Does anyone on this forum ever experienced such a behaviour.
I am running Office 2003 on XP SP3.
have you tried doing a repair in the help menu?

Is the sheet protected? You cannot hide a protected sheet.

I'm struggling very hard in getting beyond this error when trying to use VB to generate a chart from data previously inserted into the sheet.
Unable to set the Values property of the Series class.
The code works absolutely fine in XL2007 but I am having to port it back to 2003 and the inference is that its empty values that cause it to hiccup - something I cannot avoid.
My code is:
1. Retrieve selected data from database and place it at the top of the sheet
2. Add The Chart
3. Iterate through the data (amount can be variable depending upon user inputs)

...Help ! formatting data to text
I am creating data in an Excel spreadsheet. I then want to get that data
into a simple text email. I have some problems and questions...
1) how do I get the columns of data to line up evenly when I copy the data
to email text ? Keep in mind I need to be in simple text format, not HTML
or rich text.
Every time I do this, all columns become chaos and are unreadable.
2) Is there a simple way to automate the creation of an email from an excel
file ? this is less important to me.
Thanks in advance

office locations, so each record is unique to a specific office

office locations will have 3 entries. Each provider has a unique
provider ID number, which stays the same regardless of which office
location he is billing from.
