You should be able to get the header control and do anything with it you want. Go to the
MSDN, look under the topic "ClistCtrl class", and about 17 subitems into it there is a
topic called "header controls" which explains all this. GetHeaderCtrl is what you are

that time, I can only select cells (whole days). It will not let me select
the text. Help is no help. Any hints out there. Did I accidentally select

Have you added a picture to the cell or a shape? If you have send it to the

...How do I add different ranges in a column together?
I have a large column of numbers and need to select random numbers that I
need to total. Rather than adidng one cell at a time. How do I add multiple
ranges within the column together?
If they're ranges (as in groups of consecutive cells) you can use SUM, as in
=sum(a1:a5,a20:a43, ... ).
If they're cells that are selected based on the value of some other cell in
the same row, you can use sumif: =sumif(b:b,"Selection",a:a) would add the
values in column A of the rows where column B is equal to "Selection".

statement. I am going to run a select (recordset - so I can loop through and

20 rows, otherwise I am going to change my WHERE clause to include more rows.

Do you have an example I can look at?

I have 2 problems, likely, related to some reference format in Excel 2003:
1) Column names are displayed in numbers, like rows;
2) When I type a reference to a cell, the formula contains letters R and C
and number of cells, the referred cell is away from the cell with the formula
(instead of a regular number of column and row).
I don't know how I got to this format. Please get me back to columns named
in letters, and regular type of displaying references.
