How do I create a query field in Excel

I have a sheet with 9000 part numbers on it. Is there a way of say at the top 
of the sheet having some sort of search box, so I can type in the part# and 
it goes straight to that part?

Method1: Using the Filter feature.
-select a cell in the data
-goto menu Data>Filter>AutoFilter
- now your data header has dopdown boxes. From the part# header select the 
part#. This will make all show only rows with this part#

-Select column Part#
- menu Edit >Find

Method 3: with code
- In a code module, paste the following sub FindAndGo
  Also change the 'CHANGE HERE' section to fit your particular case
   Sub FindAndGo()
       Dim rgEntry, rgPart As Range, rg As Range
       '---   CHANGE HERE    -----
       Set rgEntry = Range("C1")  'value to search for
       Set rgPart = Range("A:A")  'range of Part# to search
       'Find it and go there
       Set rg = Range("A:A").Find(What:=rgEntry.Value, LookIn:=xlValues, _
       If Not rg Is Nothing Then
          Application.Goto Reference:=Application.ConvertFormula( _
              rg.Address, xlA1, xlR1C1, True), scroll:=True
       End If
   End Sub

- in the above code, the searched value is in C1
  Next to this cell, add a button from the Forms toolbar
  Right Click the button and choose Assign Macro from the pop-up menu. 
Choose the FindAndGo macro from the list
Now enter a value in C1 and click the button. If the value exists, you'll be 
sent to the corresponding cell.

Excel Open and Close
I have a problem, whereby sometimes after closing Excel and then looking on task manager the excel process is still running. When opening excel again all that appears is the menu icons and the grey surrounding the actual spreadsheet. No actual spreadsheet appears. Needless to say it is also locked up. If I close that spreadsheet, and also end the process for one that is running in task manager, upon opening excel again it is fine. I've tried doing detect and repair, but this doesn't help. It is also intermittent as I guess only 50% of the time closing excel will still leave the process...

ALT-TAB not working with excel 2000
My problem is, as in the subject, that pressing ALT-TAB to switch among the files opened in Excel 2000 doesn't work anymore. I tried to re-install withouth success. I can only use CTRL-TAB because you haven't multiple sessions running (as usual in Excel 2000) but only one task of Excel. So, it's impossible to use ALT-TAB. Unfortunately, CTRL-TAB isn't useful as ALT-TAB because you can't switch from the current worksheet and the last used but you have to pass cyclicly through the files opened... It seems to be related to the fact that the same worksheets had been opened...

Accesing an Access Databse from Excel
Please, how can I access an Access database through ODBC from VBA. Where an I find the documentation needed. Best regards, Alexandru TUDOSE First, you don't necessarily need to use VBA to bring data into Excel from a database, whether from Access or another DBMS. Two easy ways are to use a pivot table (Data, PivotTable and PivotChart Report, and specify External Data Source in the wizard's first step; then, follow the prompts), or Data | Import External Data | New Database Query. Some of these menu items will differ according to the version of Excel you're using. The pivot t...

Variable Accros Queries
If I wish to use a variable across mutliple queries, is this possible, and if so where would I declare and set the variable? You can't use variables in queries. Are you thinking in terms of selection criteria (i.e. parameters), and you don't want to have to input the same parameters multiple times, or do you want the value stored in a variable to be returned by the query? For the former, the easiest approach is to create an unbound form with controls on it, one for each parameter. Have the query refer to the controls (the syntax is Forms![NameOfForm]![NameOfControl]), rather...

when form created
I have a form which was created by someone else (not a form template) which is like a questionnaire with empty boxes to be completed. When the boxes are typed in all the margins move to accommodate the words being typed. Is there a way to fix/lock the original form and then just fill in the blank boxes? I suspect this is set up as a table with auto resizing enabled. Displaying table gridlines (Table | Show Gridlines) will help you see what you're dealing with.

Hi i need to save my files i create from my home computer using office Xp to my office p.c which is running office 97.
