Excel slow to open a book, but fast empty
My Excel 2002 has been working fine, but lately has got a problem: it
is very, very slow when opening an xls file by clicking it. It is fast
as it should when I open it empty from the start menu. If I create the
simplest possible book by just typing something in one cell and saving
it, opening it is still slow.
Perhaps this format is easier:
0. Excel has been working as it should.
1. Fast when running from start menu, opening an empty book.
2. Slow when clicking an xls file, independent of book complexity.

I have a question aabout this:
I set row A with validation list "yes/no", i want that if choose "yes",
then open a word document named "checklist.doc".
Instead of using a validation list, you could use a "yes" button and a "no"
button. The yes button can be linked to a macro to open the word document.
The no button can be linked to a macro the will type the text "Go to next
step" or something like that.

I have several excell 2000 documents that when opened, the

All the other sheets in this workbook are fine. This also
effects the column and row headings (A B C, 1 2 3). If I
go to View > Zoom and zoom from the default of 75% to
anything else, it fixes the problem. I can then zoom back
to 75% and everything still looks fine. (Including row

first sheet is still messed up.

There needs to be better protection on locked cells.
It is possible to alter the formatting of a locked cell by pasting into the
cell. Example pasting an entry copied from a % format into a currancy format
changes the cell to %. This also follows with coulours etc.
Secondly a formula in a locked cell can be corrupted by inadvertantly
removing cells that it refers to and then replacing them.
have you protected the sheet? (Tools - Protection')

You seem to have been neglected by our community.
Yes, it can be done, if I understand your intention correctly. The
topography in your approach means, in a sense, the 3D chart. The first two of
the three values defininig each point specify the x- and y-coordinates (like
on a map); the third value is represented by prescribed colors or shades.

In older versions of Excel, you could directly create xy
