00/01/1900 In the date cell when linked cell is empty?
Hi I have 52 worksheets all linked up to a total sheet that is working very
well thanks to RD
All I need to do now is sort out the date this is copied from sheet1 onto
the totals page and works fine when the date is put into sheet1.
However if the cell is blank on sheet2 the date is put into the totals sheet
as 00/01/1900 when the date is put in sheet2 all is well with the right date
entered into the totals sheet.
So how do I get the totals date to stay blank until the weekly sheets have a
date put into the sheet please.
the format I am using is below

I've got a Spreadsheet with 12 tabs (sheets), I need part of tab 12 (sheet)
to appear on tabs 1-11 (sheets), so that if I change data in tab 12 (sheet),
tabs 1-11 (sheets) are changed too.. the cells themselves will never move
location, just the data within them..
Is it possible?

Little bit of a quirky question...
Trying to use a cell value as a reference in a formula, where that
cell value is the name of a named range.
So, assume A1:A3 is a named range: Rng1. And, B1:B3 is Rng2.
I want to get the correlation vale for A1:A3 and B1:B3
So, cell D1 contains "Rng1" and D2 has "Rng2"; and cell D3 has the
formula: =correl(D1,D2). But I get an error. Have also tried using
Indirect to no avail.
Any help would be hugely appreciated. Thank you.

of the Enter key to the way you want.

Is it possible to place an image in a cell? If so, can you tell me how to do
No. Images are placed in the Drawing Layer "above" the worksheet. Cells
can contain formulae or data.
If you size an image to exactly cover a cell, you can set the Move and
Size with Cells property (right-click on the image, choose Format
Picture/Properties and select the appropriate radio button) so that the
image remains "on top" of the cell.

You can only make this switch if you change a column chart to a bar chart.
But if you want a line chart that's rotated, you can fake it:
