I don't want excell to change ratios to fractions, what to do?
How can I change excell settings so that it doesn't automatically change
ratios into decimals?
When 1:263 is entered into a cell, it is displayed as 0.224305556
I want 1:263 to stay displayed as 1:263 in the cell after it is entered.
What do I do?
Format the cells as text

When exporting a budget to Excel only a few (50 out of 1500) of the
accounts actually export. Why?
I recall a problem with Excel budgets that was fixed with a service pack for
version 7.5. Might want to check that.
Also, check that the status of the account is active.

Thanks for reply. Unfortunately all service packs are installed and I
know that all of my 6,913 accounts are active, not just the few that
export to excel.

I don't speak the Access, but can you split that field up into smaller pieces
(while in access).
Then retrieve each little bit and recombine?

It works perfectly on my system with 2007. But when I put it on a system

What it is supposed to do is pull data from a sheet name in the format

Message posted from http://www.ExcelForum.com/
You can lock all cells except those you want available
for input. (format;cells; protection). Then protect the
sheet. In XP, you can allow the user to only select
unlocked cells. I don't know if that feature is
available in 2000; I don't think it was available in 97.
...best way to deserialize xml
I'm at a quandry as to what's the best/fastest way to deserialize an
incoming xml stream?
I ran a small test on xmlserializer and on a small file it performed 10
times worse then when I used the XMLDocument and deserialized the values
myself. Is the xmlserializer really that slow?
I'm expecting a file about 1 MB in length and if it's that slow on a 2 K
file then I can't phantom how it's going to behave on a 1 MB file.
Should I just skip the xmlserializer and XML Dom and go straight to
xmlreader and do the deserialization myself?
This has been discussed a few times...sequencial cell numbers w/ an Exception
Ok I read the previous post about sequencial numbers but how can I set
up the numbering so that it all ways add the contents of the previous
cell, regardless of what the cell name is.
I use the normal process for creating sequential numbers but when I
insert a new row w/i the group the sequence is broken.
Is there a way to say
A1 = 5.0
B1 = SUM(PREVCELL + 5);
C1 = SUM(PREVCELL + 5);
A1 = 5.0
B1 = SUM(A1 + 5);
C1 = SUM(B1 + 5);
As you can see that if a new cell is inserted into the later it breaks
but the earlier statment still holds true.
Thanks in advance
