Find/replace with different text colour messes up
When doing a Find/Replace on a certain word that needs to have a different
colour than default - say, red - Excel incorrectly colours the whole cell
instead of just the word that was searched on.
To see this in action, try this:
1.. Open up a blank Excel sheet
2.. Enter some text in a few cells - "This is a test", for instance. Now,
let's try to use search/replace to colour only the word "test" in red.
3.. Open up Search/Replace
4.. On the "Search for"-line, enter: test
5.. On the "Replace with"-line, enter: test
6.. For the "R...How can I create a chart to compare multiple data series?
Using Excel, is there a way to merge multiple charts with different data
series into one to demonstrate a direct comparison of the data series within
one single chart. I've got 4 charts of the stacked column type.
Tufte calls them small multiples, Cleveland calls them trellis displays. I
call them panel charts.
Take a look at the examples on this page.
Another option is to stick with your 4 charts, however, you can size and
align them. Here's a link to a simple macro that sizes and aligns all charts

...Finding the combination that appears more times
i have a list on excel 2007 that displays the purchase of items on columns

A B C D F
A C D E F
B C D E F
B C D F Z
in this example, the winner would be (B, C, D, E) as it appears 3 times

I have a spreadsheet where the addresses have been saved as wrapped text in

delimiter in the Text to Columns wizard.
I have also tried search and replace but again Excel will not recognise
ALT+ENTER as a delimiter
Any ideas much appreciated! Thanks
Re-format the column to eliminate the wrap.............then use Data >
