can excel check one column against another
Hi. I have a spreadsheet with columns such as A, B, C, D, filled with
numbers. Each row across such as row 1, then row 2, then row 3, etc of
numbers is totaled in column E. Countless rows, each of which is
totaled per row and then ends with a grand total at bottom of column E.
Next comes columns F, G, H, also filled with numbers (but different
numbers), which is totaled per row in Column I. At the bottom of Column
I is a grand total. Even though arrived at using different sets of
numbers, -both grand totals - in columns E and I must match.
Sometimes they don't match. Ouch.
So here is m...Locking cells?
I know this is probably a simple thing, but how do I lock or protect
cells which I do not want the user to modify? For example, if I allow
the user to enter data into cells A and B but C uses a function to
calculate the result of A and B, I want to lock the result cell so they
cannot accidentally enter data into C. How can I do this in Excel?
Cells can be locked or unlocked. Unless you've changed some settings, the
default for each cell is locked.
You can lock/unlock cells by:
selecting the cells
check locked or unlocked

Anyone know if there is a way to add only cells that are highlighted?
I would like to see quick sums of only the cells I have highlighted
and hoping there might be a way to do this quickly and easily. I have
to do this many times with various cells with differing number values.
Thanks in advance
By "highlighted" do you mean colored or simply selected?
If the latter, use the Sum on the Status Bar.
If the former.....................
You will have to use VBA to grab the colorindex of the cells.
Do you want to do that?

My problem is, a transaction occurs at my bank, and MM2K7 downloads

sometimes I don't.

I know I asked this question before, but (sigh) I cannot find the
answer now, when I need it of course.
How can I select a series in an Excel chart (XY Scatter) using the
keyboard, not the mouse?
The issue is: I have overlapping series, so it is difficult for me to
select a series by moving the mouse cursor to a point in one series and
right-clicking it, as I normally do.
Someone once mentioned a ctrl and/or shift key combination (I think)
that would allow me to select each series explicit in round-robin
fashion. That is what I am looking for again.

Not really as it is a document wide setting....
however, there is workaround
open the page shapesheet

and set XGridSpacing and YGridSpacing to a large value.

Basically, it tracks what events each contact has been invited to, and

one event form for each contact form. The reason I've set up a
different entity rather than just adding a tab is that access to this

Obviously, if many events forms are created for the one contact, it
