Unprotect Worksheet

Multiple sheets
Hi I have several workbooks with a sheet in for each day (W1Mo etc) which all link to a daily totals sheet in a seperate workbook. What I've done is named the total figure cell in each column and then linked that to the daily sheet, but I have approx 120 named cells per workbook. Is there an easier/better way?

Filter on sheet with some cells protected?
Hi all, I have a spreadsheet which has four columns of formulas protected so people can't change them! However, i still want people to be able to filter the spreadsheet and this isn't working, is there a way of locking those cells but not stopping people from filtering? Kirstie If you are using Excel 2000 or earlier, then you do not have the option to allow filtering when you protect a sheet. However, one way around this is to copy/move your formulae to another sheet which you can protect (and hide if you want to), and then have links in your first sheet to the cells with the...

form validation determines which sheet to add data
Let's say I'm creating a form that a non tech savvy used car dealer uses to enter his newly acquired vehicles to the excel workbook. Each sheet of the workbook is a unique model year of the car.

I have tried to click on the box to edit it, however no matter how many times i click i cannot seem to get it to recognise i've clicked.

can i wrap rows to form multiple rows per row to fit on 1 sheet?
i have a worksheet with very long rows (a to cf). For printing i would like to wrap the rows to fit on a single page, and then seperate each set with a space. I would also like to wrap the headers too, of course. is this possible? Say you're creating 10 columns per new row. So it kind of looks like this: $A$1 $B$1 $C$1 $D$1 $E$1 $F$1 $G$1 $H$1 $I$1 $J$1 $K$1 $L$1 $M$1 $N$1 $O$1 $P$1 $Q$1 $R$1 $S$1 $T$1 $U$1 $V$1 $W$1 $X$1 $Y$1 $Z$1 $AA$1 $AB$1 $AC$1 $AD$1 $AE$1 $AF$1 $AG$1 $AH$1 $AI$1 $AJ$1 $AK$1 $AL$1 $AM$1 $AN$1 $AO$1 $AP$1 $AQ$1 $AR$1 $AS$1 $AT$1 $AU$1 $AV$1 $AW$1 $AX$1 $AY$1 $...

Changing default buttons in a property sheet
I've asked this question before with no satisfactory answers, so I thought I'd ask it again. I have a property sheet (set up as a wizard) where, on some of the pages, I'd like to set the default button to a button on the page, rather than the Back or Next button. I've tried using SetDefID() to set the default button, but this did not seem to work. Not only do the buttons remain the same visually, but when the user hits the Enter key, it is the Back or Next button (whichever was the default before I tried to change it) that gets "pressed", and the wizard changes...
