Can excel formulas become frozen?
Can formulas become frozen?
I have a worksheet containing a basic percentage formula
This formula was working perfectly and producing the expected result
when it was originally entered. I then saved and closed the worksheet
When the worksheet was reopened and the figures in columns B and C wer
changed, the previous result did not alter. If you retype the formula i
each individual row it works ok again, but no amount of copying, pastin
makes the original formula work.
This applies to two other formulas on the same worksheet. It is almos
as if they have become disconnected fr...Incorrect Number Format
I try to set a cell format "Number" with negative
number display in a (1234.00) layout. Hoever, in Format
Cell, it shows negative number layout as
(1234.00) is replaced. I try to modify the format
in 'Custom' so that it layout looks like (1234.00). But
my Excel does not recognize it as a number format and the
negative number layout is shown as same as above.
What can I do???
I am not sure what you mean, is this the format you are looking for?

If I am sent Publisher files made in the newer versions of Publisher, why
wont they open in Publisher 2000? Is there a converter available as there is
for Word file conversions?
This incompatiblity between versions is a major irritation. Why does
Microsoft FORCE people into costly upgrades when previous versions are
working well?? Later versions of MS programs are sometimes worse containing
more annoying features than the more straightforward previous ones. The
change of layout etc is also disconcerting.

Is there any way to change the right margin in Excel, or is it going to
default no matter what?
The margins of left and right headers cannot be changed.
The only way to move them is to pad with spaces.
i.e. enter your right header as custom then add several spaces to move it
You cannot move it more to the right.

Something strange is happening, when I go from one cell to another the
screen appears to update, but gets mixed up. The only way I have found to
fix it is to do a print preview or select another tab but now it is at the

frustrating, does anyone have any idea why this is happening?
Thanks in advance

I know that I can hide Excel, but how can I hide the form but the text on

There is anyway to do it in VBA?
Can you please explain further? This doesn't really make any sense to me.
Please give a specific example. Before/after examples usually work great!

I simply want to sequentially number rows in a column. However, some of the
rows do not contain any data so do not need to be numbered. So there is in

update the number sequence. You cannot drag the auto numbering facility
across cells that you want to remain empty of course, because they will be

I want to have two columns:
the first with date;
the second with the corresponding day number.
How do I do that?
I don't care what the day numbers are - as long as they are sequential.
Excel already stores dates as sequential numbers. Assuming your date is in
A1, in B1 type =A1 and format as General.

Go to File/PageSetup.
Go to the header/Footer tab.
Click Custom Header, click in the Centre Section area, click the Picture tool (2nd from right) and
insert the text or image that you want as a watermark.
Click the Format Picture tool (1st on right), click the Picture tab, set Image Control to "Washout".
That should do it.
