```Jennifer

Frank's method will do what you want, but it will leave formulas in the
cells, which you may not want. To fix these values in place, select the
cells, then Edit/Copy then Edit/Paste Special ..   Values.
An alternative way is to put 4000 into the first cell. If you then reselect
the cell, you can drag down the column with the little cross in the bottom
right hand corner, using your right mouse button. When you get to the end,
select Fill Series from the menu.

```Or : Type the first 2 numbers ( 4000 and 4001) and then select both cell and
click and "drag" the fill box ( the small square at bottom right of the two
selected cells).
You can drag down al long as your range needs to be.

```put 4000 in 1st cell, put 4001 in 2nd cell, select both cells, move cursor to
bottom right corner of cell so it turns into a +, click and then drag down -- as
you drag you should notice the counter increasing up from 4000 (if you dont,
press the CTRL key)

```Enter 4000 in the top cell. Highligt the column and click Edit/Fill,
Series/Linear, Step value 1/ Stop Value 5000.
You can also fill rows the same way.

Excel: extract and sum numerals from mixed text/numeral cell range
I have a large (30x20) grid of cells with data, and I want to extract and then sum up certain numerals from this entire range. The catch is that the data is mixed numerals and text, as you'll see below. Here's an abbreviated 3x3 example, with a value in each of the nine cells: V7.1 T H P1 A T B V3 P4.5 If I just wanted to sum up the instances of "T" appearing, I could use COUNTIF() for the entire range to come up with answer ("T" appears 2 times). Easy enough. But, what I'm trying to accomplish is to sum up the numerals associated w...

Error in formula displayed for linear and 2nd order curve fits in Excel 2003
I have created trendlines for some pretty simple data using both 2nd order polynomial and linear fits. In both cases, the displayed formulas have their 1st and 2nd order coefficients wrong by a factor of 10!! (I have read lots of posts about increasing precision but this is not what I am up against). Has anyone seen this? What version of Excel? Could you include the data in a follow up post (not as an attachment), along with the coefficients you've computed? - Jon ------- Jon Peltier, Microsoft Excel MVP Tutorials and Custom Solutions Peltier Technical Services, Inc. - http://PeltierT...

Windows Update
My problem is similar to someone else's below(about Excel 2003 not being able to update), the only difference is that I don't want Excel to update at all. I don't even use it. But the yellow shield kept telling me that it had 1 update available, which was Excel 2003, so, out of annoyance, I installed it. After failing to install several times, I decided to uninstall Excel from Microsoft Office(Pro Edition 2003). Even after uninstalling Excel, I still got the windows update alert. How do I stop it?

Excel charts should allow "switching" series on or off
A plot (chart) of time series data may be used for many purposes. From my use two reasons I use such plots are: Studying individual time series trends; and Overall impression of all results. But when studying multiple time series data a chart can become cluttered. It would be useful if individual series could be seleceted as visible or invisible so that they could be evaluated without losing the total plot. At the moment the only way to "unclutter" the plot is to remove the temporaily-unwanted series but it can be time consuming to reconstruct the plot. ---------------- Thi...
