Excel-how (find/replace) for multifmat cells w/o changing fmat
For a client, i need to be able to find and replace words in cells with 2
formats. But when you replace them,it changes the format of the whole cell,
and not just what you changed. Is there any way to work around this without
changing the format after all of the find and replaces?
Saved from a previous post, but this one has some wordwrap problems fixed:
I think you'd have to keep track of each character's font attributes.
This works very slowly, but works:

I have a pivot table that gives me the number of rides done by a van. I can
have the pivot table return the number of rides, but what I need is the
number vans that participated for a certain day. Example, it is possible to
have 27 trips done by 18 vans, how can I count the number of vans and not
addup the van number?
Any help appreciated.

I am looking for ideas on how to cycle count serial
number tracked items without increasing workload. Our
serialized items are barcoded but the problem is the are
situated on the pallet incorrectly and the pallet is
placed on a third level of a racking system.
If we could just cycle count based on item count
and not include the serial number it would make it easy.

...Store Operations POS Item Table Field Suggestion
We would like to suggest adding a new "numeric" type field in the "Item"

an alphanumeric string, and does not offer true numeric sorting in applicable

This is possible only through a macro, for example:

This setting does not get saved with the workbook, so it must be reset by

because the numbers will change monthly, and the

So, I need to create a presentation that will:

2) HOPEFULLY have the Pow.Pt. worksheet appear as a bitmap

3) allow the Pow.Pt. SS (or the picture) to link to the SS
