combining 2 columns of data
my problem is i have a list of names (one column of first names, and one
column of last names), my boss says we need to have the first and last names
in the same column. Is there any way that the Data can be combined without
having to retype all 5000 names??
You can write a formula in a new cell to combine cells. For instance
if the first name is in A1 and the last name is in B1, you can write a
formula in C1 like this:
This joins the value of A1 with a space and the value of B1. If you
need to you can arrange it to be last name comma first name:

This is a multi-part message in MIME format.
If I recall correctly if I had a sub-folder in my task list then items =
in these sub-folders did not appear on the OUTLOOK2003 TaskPad list. =
This was either by default or I had somehow managed to filter them out. =
On OUTLOOK2007, items in tasks sub-folders are included in the To Do Bar =
Task List. I can't figure out a way to filter these items out.
Any ideas? Thanks.=20

I have several separate publisher files (publications) that I need to

1. My first choice would be to insert them in their proper place in the

Is there a way to do either of these things in Publisher? Failing either of
these, I would try going back to catalog merge and letting it add to the

total of 15 hours). The column with the total amount I have auto summed so I

When the list is produced, the first city is always listed twice. The
rest of the cities are unique. Has anyone ever experience this
problem? I'm using Excel 2003. Please help !!!!
this normally happens when the column does not have a "heading" field, ie
City. If you add a heading field into your data does it now work?
