...Format Cell as True/False
OK. It's been a while but I could've sworn that I once was able to format a
cell as a yes/no so that it appeared as a checkbox in the spreadsheet.
Is this possible or have I confused it with another application.
Sounds like you are remembering Access database tables.

Select the chart, press the equal key, then select the cell with a
mouse. This adds a text box in the middle of the chart, which you can
move around and format as needed.

I have a spreadsheet that is sorted first by department, then by number. The
departments are sorting OK, but within some of the departments, the numbers
are not being sorted properly. This is happening in departments where some
rows have been inserted into the spreadsheet and data has been entered. In
those departments, after running the sort, the numbers of the inserted rows
appear first, followed by the remaining numbers. I've tried reformatting the
cells and Iv'e also tried copying the sheet and pasting it into a new file,
both to no avail. Any ideas?
