Excel 2007: Sort by Cell Color
I have Excel 2007 with a fairly new computer and 2gb of RAM. When I try to
sort a spreadsheet by cell color, the program locks up and I have to quit.
There are 46000 records in the sheet - I understand this is a big ask for the
computer but with 2gb of RAM it should be able to do it.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can make this work better?
I hadn't tried sorting by color (cell fill color) before (new XL2007
feature) so I created a 46000 row by 3 column 'database' with two fill
colors in the first column. It sorted in less than 5 seconds on a les...Split tasks a splitting headache
Inherited another Project IMS. I am noticing right off that the previous
scheduler has been starting tasks without their FS preds completing.
Yeah, it does show up as a spit bar in the gantt chart. But, does anyone
know a way to filter out just task that started before predecessor
completion? I'm dealing with several thousand lines. Thanks.

question? Thank you very much.
How to "RANDOMLY" split the whole data set (n=2000) into two sub

Thank you very much.
Please take care

the data on this variable. Take the first 1000 cases ...Unwanted replicated split screen

It will be called that, unless you typed something else in the save as

That counts TEXT only, ignores numbers.
That will count all non-empty cells regardless of data type.

<email@example.com...Why is my text hidden behind other cells?
I changed my text to be 90 degrees. When I type, the text only shows in that
box. I cannot make it appear OVER the other cells. I need to learn how to
'bring it to front'... if that makes sense. HELP!
I don't think you can. The only ways to show all the text would be to either
increase the height to the row or merge some cells together.

Ok im trying to grab names from one cell to transfer to another cell on a
different sheet but when I do the = and click on the cell that I want the
information to come from it just places a 0 in that cell and no text. I
changed the cell to make sure the properties are in text format but that
didn't work, when I start a completly new worksheet it works!

I have a (very) long list, sorted by account code. I would like to write a
macro that splits the list into separate sheets in the workbook, with a
separate sheet for each account code.
Ideally, I would also like to rename each sheet to show which account code
the sheet contains.
I have no idea, though, where to start. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

2) use a formula such as =LEFT(A1,3) or =RIGHT(A1,4)

type out two or three examples of your data.

Gordo...Safe way to check what is in a cell
I am writing an application that is supposed to parse a spreadsheet file
into individual files dependent on what is in the first column.
Each block of rows with the same numeric string or number is used to create
a new file, i.e. a change iin number signals end of a file.
Lines with anything else are to be ignored.
For this reason, I need to check the first column for one of the following:
1. A string of numerals, f.ex. "014"
2. A number, f.ex. 610
5. Anything else
So, I need a safe way to tell if I have either 1 or 2, or one of the rest.

If all the names follow the same format (you don't say), you can use Data -
Text to columns, using a space as the separator. Make sure that the columns
to the right are empty before you start.

---------------------------...How to pick a specific cell within a macro .... ??
I receive spreadsheets with data from a number of different sources, in
different formats, but with essentially the same type of information. I need
to name about 5 ranges for my macro, but each range begins in a different
cell reference i.e. one range from one source may start at A4, whereas the
other source may have the same data beginning at B2.
I would like to tell my analysis spreadsheet which specific cell to start in
to name the data range.
Is there anyway of doing this?

For some reason I am getting nowhere trying to do a very simple thing.
I have a column with many of the cells for a long stretch that I want to be
equal to whatever number I put in B2. As I'm building this spreadsheet, it
seems to me that it should be a very simple matter to "tell" all those cells
to just be equal to whatever is in B2, they using format painter, etc.,....
they don't copy "=B2" part of the previous cells, but instead just copy
whatever the number is .... which means that when I change the number in B2,

counting should restart for Brian and not accumulate from Adam's total.
Note that the starting point for each person is when "Row" = 1.

I want to place the word "YES" in cell F2 if the cell A2 background is gray.
How do I do that Thanks
You'd have to do this with some macro code. Excel simply was never created
to make decisions based on cell shading or border color or style or anything
like that; it makes decisions based on the value/content of cells.
Now, if A2 is formatted gray via Conditional Formatting, we could probably
figure out how to set up F2 to display "YES" at the same time that A2 gets
turned gray. The question would be what is the condition that causes A2 to
