In Excel 2007, I need the to add data from column L's cells 2-93 with the
data from column M's cells 2-93 and have it total in Column N's cells 2-93.
I'm hoping that there is an easier way than auto summing each pair of cells.
This example is the smallest range that I have to due this with and auto
summing is to time consuming. Please if you have a formula that I can use it
would be extremly helpful.

I have means of values that are in a line chart. I want to add error bars,
however when I add the error bars with SD=1 they all look the same. I know
the SD for each mean is not the same. I want to know how to get the error
bars to represent the SD of the data set (the set from which the mean was
derived) and not all look the same.
Set the 'Error amount' option to 'Custom' and specify the range in your
worksheet that has the SDs.

For a client, i need to be able to find and replace words in cells with 2

and not just what you changed. Is there any way to work around this without
changing the format after all of the find and replaces?

I'm importing data from Money 2000 into 2006 and the dates and quantities of
investment transactions are not transferred. I exported multiple accounts
within a file with File/Export and changed the file names to reflect the
account names (with .qif after them) to a removable flash drive. Followed
import instructions (File/Import), set up multiple accounts and moved them
as a group. The transfer appeared to be successful except date and
quantities were not present. Any ideas?
