Converting Text to an external cell ref.
Hi, I'm, trying to put together an external cell reference in my
worksheet. I can join together text that looks like the File Path /
Work Sheet / Cell reference, but I can't figure out how to turn this
string of text into a file path etc. and pick up the data I want.
I get this strange feeling I'm being a complete idiot asking this can't
see the wood for the trees, but I need help.

is it possible to store text e.g. a standard script which I constantly
use within the code of a macro ?
The macro would be assigned to a button and when the button is �clicked
on� it would copy this text to the clip board which will then allow me
to paste it into another application.
Currently this text is stored in a cell and I reference this cell and
copy to clip board this way, buy I want to get away from storing text
Any help would be grateful appreciates

I have two lists of clients names, A and B, that have some names in common..
I already sent a mailing to list A, and would like to send another to the
names of list B that do not belong to list A.
So far I have tried to add a column to list B with a test to see if each
name of list B is in list A. I tried to combine functions like OR and EXACT
but haven't succeeded.

In Excel 2003, one could select a cell, highlight a part of the contained
text string and then right-clidk and format text. I could get underlining,
bold, font, color, etc.
For some reason, with Excel 2007, I can do the same, but when I hit the
enter button, the formatting disappears. It reappears if I select the cell
and press F2.
Is there some setting that I have missed?
...Show actual values added instead of cell references? (=A1+A4 shows as =10+2 in cell)
Is this even possible?
I have the following:
A1 =A2 (Shows result of 10)
A4 =A5 (Shows Result of 2)
A7 =10+2 (Shows result of 27)
Is there a way to show the formula in A7 as =10+2 instead of having it
=A2+A5 ??? Thanks a bunch!

I have a range of data, which has had the DOLLAR() function performed on it.
I would like to get the total of this range using the SUM() function. doing
SUM(F1:F4) will not work, so I need to convert the data into values that
will work. The VALUE() function is perfect for converting the data into
values that will work for SUM(), but the formula SUM(VALUE(F1:F4)) does not
work because VALUE() will not accept a range as a parameter (and also does
not return a range). I need to perform the VALUE() function on each cell
before submitting it to SUM(). There must be some way to do this,

I'm probably asking a very basic question, so please forgive me.
suspect there's a standard formula for this, but I cannot find it.
I'm looking for a formula for a spreadsheet I'm building that will giv

I don't need a net present value for the sum.
The input variables are:
1. Initial sign-on fee ($IN)
2. Access fee per billing cycle ($AF)
3. The retention rate - % who renew membership each billing cycle
The formula shouldn't go through infinite cycles. A close approximatio
would be adequate.

Then add a criterion to the field that lists the person's ID:
