Conditional format to cells containing a #DIV/0! error
I would like to apply a conditional format to an entire spreadsheet.
In particular, if a cell returns and error such as #DIV/0! I would the
selected font color to be white.
What do I have to enter in the conditional formatting menu? If I set
the value of the cell equal to #DIV/0!, the format does not work.
A solution that I found could be to use the GoTo functions to select
the cells with errors and then manually apply the color, but since I am
creating a template at a later point the empty cells that return the
divided by zero error may contain a number. Basically I would like the
cells t...cell background
Is there a setting that will change the default setting of a cell background
from white to say, light gray, when the cursor is in it? When the user
elects a default configuration, or one time configuration, of a white
background with the cells outlined in black there is only a very weak visual
indication of where the cursor actually is, and you sometimes wind up
referring to the formula bar to verify where you are. Using Excel 2000.

Basically you specify the angle in lfEscapement of the LOGFONT
structure. Then call CreateFontIndirect with this structure and you'll
get a rotated font of type HFONT. Use SelectObject to select the font

This is a problem that's been discussed before, but I haven't seen this
aspect addressed: If you select the chart in question and go to
Excel>Preferences>Chart, you can indicate that empty cells should be
plotted as 'Not plotted (leave gaps)". (This is one of 3 options
including "Zero" and "Interpolated".) Thing is, this doesn't work!
As far as I'm able to determine, the ONLY thing that Excel will do is
treat your blank cells as zero values (yeah, yeah, unless I replace
those blank cells with "#N/A"). The work-arounds are fine, but ...Scroll Area #2

is a variance >= 1% across the two cells, then I want to say ">= 1%

Hello, I have a problem with displaying a graph in excel. It seems like
the default way of displaying a graph is from left to right, that is,
the longer part stretches out to the right. On my graph, dates are on
the left (vertically) and an other factor is on the right
(horisontally). I want the dates tp be horisontally and the other
factor vertically, and the curve/graph should go from top to bottom,
like a waterfall if that better explains it. That is, I would like to
rotate the graph, but not by saving the graph as a gif-file and rotate
it in Visio for instance, but as a real excel-graph, ...Long Text Strings Not Showing In Adjacent Cells
Under macro control, I copy a list of text strings from one worksheet to

seem to have an effect.
How do I get the entire text strings to show without visiting each cell
in the worksheet?

Thank you very much.

Someone passed along a sample check register file in Excel. At the top are
Column headings for date, check number, etc. When you scroll down, the

You can't. The next task of a repeated task is only generated after you have
