Today Conditional Format
I have a column which calculated a date based on 3 working days from a date
input into a diff column. What I want to do I have the calculated date
appear bold if that date has passed based on the current date.
For example if I input 01/08/11 the next column calculates 04/08/11 (3
working days). I want the caluclated date to appear bold when I open the
spreadsheet on the 05/08/11 ro show the calculated date has passed.
I can use conditional formatting but can't get the syntax right

I have one excel file. This file consists of Item Number,
Description, Quantity, Unit Cost and Extended Value. I
send this file to 4 users in various locations so they can
open in the MS Excel. The users will count how many
quantity they have for each Item number. The user then
saves and sends the file back to me.
My question is how do I combine four files from 4 users
back into one file with the quantity update and other
fields remain unchanged. For instant, User A count 4 for
the item 12345, User B count 2 for the item 12345, User C
count 1 and User D count 0. How do I combine 4 files f...trying to split a stock 1:4

I'm using the US version of Excel 2003, but need to format costs, etc., for a
project in the French euro format (e.g., I need 2050.45 euros to display as 2
That currency format isn't offered in my dialog box, and if I make a custom
number format that will display correctly, it doesn't operate as a number.

Does anyone know if there is a way to do this with Excel
In Excel you need a macro if you want to change case in the same cell
See this webpages

Being in the UK, I obviously want to use the English(UK) date format, so
Christmas Day is 25/12/05 rather than 12/25/05. However, this defaults
the time format to hh/mm/ss (why, I do not know, since I can assure
American readers we're not normally that precise), so I have to reset it
English(US) to get hh/mm, which resets the default date format to
mm/dd/yy, so I have to change it back the next time I want to format a
cell as a date.
Any way round this? It's only a minor problem but it's irritating me.
