Thank you Eduardo.

I don't get any error message, the file just doesn't open. Unfortunatately 
we backup files only once a month and I created this one just a few days ago.

Can't find data files Outlook 2000
A customer of mine called to say that his computer was dead. We sorted out that it was his motherboard that was dead. He bought a replacement computer and we installed the old hard disk in the new computer as a slave to get the files off it. The only data they really needed was their Outlook data - contacts and calendar were very important. They were using XP Home and Outlook 2000. I went looking for some data files but couldn't find anything. the only pst file on the computer was 32k and was an original start up file.

How do I execute a macro based on the value of a cell in Excel?
For example, if cell A1=1, I want to run Macro1 once. If cell A1=2, I want to run Macro2 once. If cell A1=3, do nothing. I am familiar with Excel If/Then statements, so to my thinking, it would look something like: IF(A1=1,Run Macro1,IF(A1=2,Run Macro2,"")) I just don't know what the command is to "Run" the macro. others will reply i am sure with code.However you need to decide wether the macro runs automatically of a worksheet change event so every time cell a1 is changed(or any cell for that matter ) the macro would run.Alternatively you could have a button...

Automatic Colour of Cells in Excel
I use excel for a marksheet. A level my students 1, 2, 3, 4. When I put a "4", for example, I usually go to format and then colour the cell blue.

Excel Activity Tracking
I am trying to track how many active projects we have on the go. Find activities for the current month is easy but I would like to track and graph historical projects. Each project has a Start Date and an End Date. Whenever a project starts in a certain month it should be added to the number of projects, and when it ends it should come off in the month where it ends. Any chance I could graph that with the months as the Y axis, the number of projects as the X axis and the Year as the Data axis? I need this to be dynamic so I cant be adding new columns for every month and year. Thanks!...

Number of rows in Excel 2007
Hi everyone, I was under the impression that Excel 2007 was going to have more than 1 million rows and 16,000 columns. I opened the program last week at work and saw only the regular 65,536 just like previous versions. Am I dreaming, did I invent in my own mind? Your comments will be appreciated. Gilles If your workbook is an xls workbook, then only 65,536 rows show. Save as an xlsx and it will have the million rows.

Hello! I'm hoping the experts here can help me with this quirky issue. I have a user who when she double clicks on a spreadsheet from her My Documents folder or from an email or such, Excel 2007 opens yet will not open the document itself.

Modifiable propagation time of Excel's functions?
