remove 1st 2 letters in each row
I have 30 rows and each row I need to delete the first 3 letters.
so it will be 127
Can someone please tell me how I can do this without going in and
deleting each row.
A simple MID might suffice
Assume your data in A2 down
In B2: =MID(A2,4,99)+0
Copy down. The "+0" bit will convert the extracted text nums to real
numbers. Success? hit the YES below

If you type in the wrong case in word, you can hit shift
F3 and it changes the case (e.g. lower to caps etc). Is
there any way to do this in Excel?
If your text is in say, A1. At a different cell, say
B1,you can use the following formula:
1) to change the string to upper case: =upper(cell
2) to change the string to lower case: =lower(cell
3) to change the string to sentence case: =proper(cell
Then copy and paste value of B1 to remove the formula.

I am trying to create a stencil master shape in such way that when I change

How can I solve this problem?

legend changes completely. For example: all data points are from "series 1"

no longer displays "series 1" but instead it gives the X-values of all data
points. How can I make sure that the legend will still display "series 1"
The thing is that in all my previous scatter-plots, I am able to change a
data point and still have "series 1" in the legend. I do not understand why

I have received such attachments in the past and ascribed them to the
ignorance and clumsiness of the senders, but this apparently happens indeed
as an error on the part of Windows, Live Mail, or some other agent.

It seems like a simple thing to do but I can't find a function anywhere.
If you enter something in ONE cell it is automatically in a row and a
column. So, perhaps a bit more explanation is in order.
