Please help,  Thanks

Sub Range_equation()
Dim catalyst As Variant

    Cells(1, 3) = "=""ABC"""                             ' as given
    Cells(2, 3) = "568"                                      ' as given

    catalyst = Range("C1:C2")
    Range(Cells(1, 1), Cells(2, 1)) = catalyst
    catalyst = ""

    ' My question is why do I need a catalyst to perform the following
    ' Range(Cells(1, 1), Cells(2, 1)) = Range("C1:C2")
End Sub

Range(Cells(1, 1), Cells(2, 1)) = Range("C1:C2").value
it seems to work...

subtracting a range from another range and getting a range result
I have two ranges of XYZ coordinates. One is named R1 and the other R2. Is there any way in Excell 2002 to bascially say R2-R1=R3 so that R3 is a range the same size as R1 and R2, where each cell in R3 is is subtraction of the corrisponding cells in R1 and R2?

Conditional Formatting (How to format a range depending on another range)

Thanks so much for your time and knowledge, Josh Just make sure you "anchor" your formula.

How can I apply the ROUND function to a range of cells in a workbo

Without adding the "ROUND" command to every formula individually (which would take forever) is there a way to apply rounding to a whole range? You can just use formatting to visually round what you are seeing, and if you have other formulas that refer to that whole range, then you can adjust those to round the data that they are getting from that range.

Trendline equation in chart is wrong
I'm having trouble plugging the equation from the trendline of a chart back into the Worksheet to get calculated interpolated values. In essence, I added a 4th order polynomial regression line to an X-Y chart, and then used the displayed equation in the worksheet, working off the X values to get the Y values for the regression curve. It doesn't work. The calculated values are way, way off (several orders of magnitude). I tried it again, lopping off 977 from the plotted Y values, in case dealing with large numbers was causing problems. Again, no joy. I came across an earlier thread desc...
