Table relationships in Excel?
I have an excel file exported from SQL server. There are two tables
1. User (columns: id, name, address, etc)
2. Tasks (columns: id, userid, description)
Is there a way to display the user NAME insead of the ID in the tasks table?
Many thanks in advance! Saturnius
You could do a vlookup on the linked field. If id is the same in both tables
use a vlookup function

I have a spreadsheet where I use formulas to pull data from multiple
reports on a shared server everyday. What I do is to save those
reports under a certain name everyday since the formulas have to have
the static report name in them to pull data. (For example, A1 may pull
data from c:\reportfolder\reportA, B1 may pull from c:
\reportfolder2\reportB, etc). In these report folders our IT group
runs a new report in it everyday but of course they change the name of
the report every day (to reflect the date) . . so in the reportfolder
there will be "reportA-3-12-2009", and "...enlarge validation drop down box excel 2000

but I have a few questions. I have close to 1000 products on my list. When I

sensitive. With the list being that long, the data displayed in the box tends
to jump around when I scroll, page up or page down. I feel that if the box

http://peltiertech...Excel slow to epen with Network Connection
Excel 2003 has recently become very slow to open. Regardless of the
workbook / file. I have disabled all Add-In's and cleaned out the
folder. The slow down appears to be related to having a live
internet connection. If I disable my connection or pull out my
cable and launch Excel it opens straight away, if I plug it back in
re-enable it it takes 30-45 seconds to open. I have added Excel to
Windows Firewall exception list but it still takes around 15-25

Any ideas what its doing? I have read somewhere online about it
