business phone and cell phone. When I don't have phone information in any of
the three columns I would like that column to be hidden or deleted. Can I do
this in some automated fashion? Thanks. Michael

I have created drop-down cells (type of business) for my client contact list

Thanks for the responses!
Are these Data Validation dropdown lists?
Where is the list range located?
If inside your sort area the lists should change to whatever is in A2:A20
after the sort.

I have a fairly large spreadsheet that are sorted based on a file # (ie:

The following is the pattern of the data I have.

In the above example I want to get the row number as 9 as the last row

Can this be acheived by some formula. I tried COUNTA, but it does not
serve my purpose.

I need to add high/low/close lines to a stacked column chart. The
high/low/close values are unique, and each one corresponds with one of
the stacked bars. they should be on the same y-axis
Or I can add points next to each column of my stacked column chart and
then add custom error bars to those points. Either way will work, but
I can't figure out how to do either of these options.
Do you have a bunch of stacked bars, and you're showing the HLC for each?

My default Excel template has the top row formatted as a header, with
bold text and a dark bottom border to distinguish it from the rows
So if I insert a row at row 2, the new row is formatted like the
header. Then I have to select the new row and remove the bold font,
remove the dark border, select the header row and reapply the bottom
Is there a way I can change the insert default so that it takes it's
formatting from the row below instead of the row above. Or better
yet, so that it has no formatting at all?
AFAIK you can't change this behaviour

To adjust the width of the columns, I first select the

Then, when I do FILE/OPEN, the column-widths are the same

Why aren't the column-widths being saved?
If you're opening the "csv" file from Excel the width will
not get saved, since it's not an Excel file...
