coloured cells #2
I have a user that created a spreadsheet that is
highlighted by colours in different cells. On his home
computer he can see the colours but at work the
spreadsheet becomes pure black and white. If he prints
the spreadsheet at work, it is in colour. He used to see
the colours on the screen at work also. He is using
Excel 2002. Any ideas?
Look if he has set this
Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Accessibility Options.
Click the Display tab, and then click to clear the Use High Contrast check
Click OK to close the Accessibility Options dialog box.
...Working in Excel 2003 but not Excel 2007. Can not protect sheet.
User entered data on Excel Sheet(s) and send to receipant. The returned
sheet(s) should be locked and should not be modfied by the receipant. It
works in Excel 2003. However, it does not work in Excel 2007. User sent the
worksheet(s) but the sheet(s) did not lock as in Excel 2003. Receipants can
modify the sheet(s). I tried many different ways without success.
Please help and thank you for your support.

><fwitkowski@gmail...sorting error on non-merged cells
Excel 2002, WinXp Home
My spreadsheet has columns for Number, Date, Text, etc.
When I select a column to sort, Excel expands the
selection to include all cells (as it should). When I try
to sort I get the error message about merged cells having
to be the same size. I looked at KB291063 but that
doesn't help. The cels are NOT merged so why do they have
to be the same size? What size is the error refering to
(# of characters, absolute value, ?)? How do I un-merge
non-merged cells so I can sort?
Firstly I would never rely on Excel to expand a selection to include the data I

3. touch ALT-ENTER
4. enter the new line.

I need help to open attachmens to e-mail. The program is
in Excel xls and I have tried all the web page advice

Are you talking about doubleclicking an attachment in an email and having it
launch in Excel. If so then go into Excel and do Tools / Options / General Tab

Atti...Finding combinations of cells that sum to near a value
Starting with a column of ~30 numbers, I'm looking for a way to have
Excel find all combinations that sum to a target value +/- a specified
range width. (For example, I may be looking for all combinations that
sum to 1000 +/- 10.)
I've found some code from Tushar Mehta that finds a list of all
possible matches that sum to a number, but it doesn't allow me to put
in a range to find sums to within a delta of this value. I tried
modifying the code to add this in, but I couldn't get it to work
right. Here is the code: http://www.tushar-mehta.com/excel/templates/match_values/index....separating multiples digit in a cell into individual cell
I have a series of number sets. When I copied from the MS Word and pasted them into Excel, all of the numbers in the set are pasted into one cell. I need those numbers to be in an individual cell. How do I do it? I think MS Excel 2003 was able to do it. I currently have Excel 2007. Please help.
Thank you very much.

I have created an almost working data/validation/list in Excel 2003. I can
see the note when I click on the cell, but it does not show me the arrow for
the dropdown list. I have the "In-cell dropdown" box checked. Furthermore,
it will not give me an error if something is typed incorrectly.
Lastly, I can right click on the cell and it gives me the option to "Pick
from drop down list" and this DOES work.
I have created many dropdown lists before, but this one is giving me
problems. Hopefully it is something obvious that I have missed.

they have been disabled for a Microsoft upgrade.

your workbook, allowing you to manually delete what isn't being used.

Open Paint or your favorite graphics editor and "paste" in there.
If using Paint, you can then draw arrows in Excel using the Drawing Toolbar

But how do I add lines of text onto the chart ?
Check out Chart title in Help. If not really what you need then you can try
inserting a Text Box as follows:-
Select Insert Ribbon
Select Text box (In Text block far right of ribbon)
The cursor changes shape. Click on chart and hold mouse button while you
drag the text box out to the required size.
Enter text in the text box.

D...Attaching Comment to cell contents rather than cell
I have a spreadsheet that is regularly upadated overwriting columns,
however I need to enter comments on the sheet referenced on the
content. The next time I update the sheet the referenced cell will
move down a row, but I need the comment to stay with the content rather
than the cell.
If the values that you're commenting are unique, you may want to toss the
comments and create a table in another worksheet.
Then use an =vlookup() formula to return the "comment" to the adjacent cell.

How can I have a report display a text message upon the first occurence of a

field in this table has the same value for many records in a row, but all of
a sudden that can change and I want to alert the report reader once that
subsequent records are now reflecting these changed values. What I think I
