...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.
We need a bit more information on how your source data table is set up.
What information do you have in each column?

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.

I am developing a new SQL 2008 db for a client and they will be using

I have several values in separate cells that I would like to combine into a
single cell with a carriage return (Alt-Enter) separating each value. I
basically want to take a column of values and turn it into a text file with
the values each on their own line. I learned that Chr(10) is a line feed.
(A1 =) 'line one text
(A2 =) 'line two text
What I want is for A3 to contain:
(A3 =) line one text
line two ext
That is, I want the values of A1 and A2 combined as if I typed them in and
separated them with Alt-Enter.
