need help with an excel spreadsheet
I have an excel spreadsheet where questions are answered in one area,
and the answers show up on a form in another area of the sheet that
gets printed. Instead of printing, how can I either email the print
area or have just the print area saved as a file? And, with a macro,
can the new file be named automatically by what's in a particular

have to run the Regedit program and go to this key:
replacing the "11.0" with your Excel version if different. Then you would

When printing multiple copies of a spreadsheet if it is set to collate I get
multiple separator pages 1 for each copy, if I turn off the collate option, I

Can this be adjusted in any way so I don't get multiple separator pages even
when I use the default collate option??

I keep having to force quit MS Word. It won't quit when I hit quit. It also seems to Freeze the screen often and I have to restart. Help?
Without having so much as an indication what version of Office you're using
it's impossible to suggest anything other than the fundamentals;
1- Make sure your version of Office is fully updated,
2- Make sure OS X is fully updated,
3- Run Disk Utility - Repair Disk Permissions,
4- Restart your Mac.

...Macro to remove rows?
I receive thousands of rows of data from an extract that comes from a
database. The data extract automatically generates page headers that
need to be removed, and I would love to automate this process.
The headers do have a pattern to them, but I'm not clever enough to
figure out a good way to use that to write a macro.
The first row of the header starts with hyphens
Then there's a variable number of rows of header data to delete
followed by another row of hyphens
Then 2 additional rows that must be deleted.

How do I create a chart that looks like a dartboard, i.e. it works like a
radar chart, but is round and with the ability to colour different "rings" to
represent different bands of scores?
Try a Donut chart. This will give you the rings, and you can make 20
segments in each ring to build up the wedges.

Merry Christmas Everyone!!
I've posted this on another board - got lots of views but no responses
so I'm hoping Santa will be good to me and someone reading this thread
will have an answer.
We have 100+ employees. We need to track PTO, Vacation in hours and
then also log other instances of time away from work (f= fmla,
t=travel, c=comp time, h=work at home). However these "other
instances" do not need to be tracked in terms of hours used.
The only suggestion that came on the other board was to have 3 rows per
employee - not a good solution.

You could run a little macro:

For iCtr = 1 To 3 '100 when you're ready
.PageSetup.RightFooter = "Copy " & iCtr & " of 100"
.PrintOut preview:=True 'false when you're ready

...Retain Field Format From Excel
I have an excel file that I'm importing to Access. This field consists of
"time"...hours, minutes, seconds. The format in excel is set to "Custom" -
The data elements look like 150:27:50, 2:30:25, etc...
The time stays the same for some records but others change. For
example...150:27:50 becomes 6:27:50 AM when imported.
If someone can help me figure a way to retain the format for all records I
would greatly appreciate it.
150 divided by 24 = 6.25 or 6 and 1/4 days which is displayed a 6 AM.
