I'm not too strong with Excel so this might be an easy question.
I have a large workbook with about 50K rows and about 100 columns. I need to
sort this large range of data by different columns from time to time. I know
how to sort it by just holding down the left mouse button and dragging the
highlighted area to include the range. Then I go to "data" / "Sort". This
just takes way too long to do each time for a range this size.
I hope there is a better way to include this large range without having to
"grab" it all manually.

Can I change the selected and hilight colors of a CListCtrl (and CTreeCtrl)

draw everything) using NM_CUSTOMDRAW but I don't know how to be sure the

will help me find the transactions creating the balance? The sum of the
account should be zero. To clarify, if we owe client money, there
would be a transaction setting up that postive balance then a payment
on the account taking it back to zero. There could be multiple
transactions and then one net payment. Or we could be due to receive.

If I have a worksheet that is protected and I have allowed a user to insert

If you unlock the cells in that column, then protect the worksheet, your users
can drag down--and also change everything else in that column.
You may want to use a macro that unprotects the sheet, inserts the row, copies
formulas, and reprotects the worksheet.
If you want to try that, take a look at David McRitchie's macro:

I am perplexed a bit with an annoying problem that is user error I am sure:
Most of the time, I can go to a cell and type in =F8+G8 and I get wonderful

whole column is that way? I think that this is because the column is text

Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard)
Is there a way to have Excel automatically adjust the height of a cell depending on how much text is in it?
Not the height of a cell, but the height of a row. The height is adjusted
automatically when you increase or decrease font size on any cell in a row
assuming the row's height has not been manually adjusted.
To have the height of the row adjusted automatically based on volume of text
content you need to apply Format> Cells> Alignment - Wrap Text.
