Way to make non-selectable worksheet?
I have a spreadsheet with 4 form buttons on it that will run different
macros. Is there any way to make it so the user can't click on any
part of the worksheet except for the buttons?
I don't want a message to pop up, I just want Excel to ignore if the
user tries to click on anything except the buttons.
A couple of possibilities: You could protect the sheet (Tools -
Protection - Protect Sheet. You'll want no locked cells (Format - Cells -
Protection - Locked). In Excel 2002, you can specify that locked cells
cannot be selected. Can't do that in XL97...zip codes don't merge #2
I am trying to mail merge w/ Word 2000 the names and addresses in my
worksheet. When I get to the part to choose the format for the mailing
labels, I choose F1, F2, etc. to F6 (which is the zip code column). A few
do get there, but the vast majority stop at the state, leaving off the
entire zip code.
I have gone to menu/format and selected text in the number tab. I have gone
to format/cells and chosen special/zip code in the number tab. I've read

...Integrate Paycodes, benefit codes and deduction codes
Has anyone used integration manager to update new pay rates, deduction
amounts and benefit amounts for employees?
At the beginning of each year, our company gives pay increases and we need
to update the pay codes, deduction codes and benefit codes for 40 employees,
which we get the information from a spreadsheet. I thought that maybe I
could use integration manager to update the pay, benefit and deduction codes
instead of going into each employee's card, which is time consuming.

My company recently changed the vendor codes and now I end up with two

do is concatenate the two codes. Example

what I need is this

Rather than create a new record for each vendor, add another field to the

Is there a way to protect formulas in a sheet (that is, locking certai
cells and protecting the sheet) while still enabling users to add line
in unlocked areas of the sheet?
I am trying to develop a price quoting form where the user can ad
extra lines (if additional line items are added) while I keep th
structure of the sheet (formulas that total columns, calculate tax an
so forth) intact.
I have a feeling that once I protect a sheet, I am foreclosed fro
adding line no matter what.
