Possible to 'copy' cell data into another cell?

If for example

A1 contains:  hello
B1 contains:  you

Is there a equation/command to put in cell C1  to get it to copy info
from other cells i.e. so C1  shows:  hello you

=a1 & " " & b1

If you decide you want money or dates, you can use something like:

=a1&" "&b1&text(c1,"mm/dd/yyyy")

Excel should allow chart axes to be set from sheet data.
I often chart account balances where I have x axis of dates and y axis of monetary amounts. It would be helpful if there was a facility to allow the x axis minimum and maximum to be set to some value as calculated from the data itself (or even calculated using a formula). I like to keep a "rolling" picture of the last three months (so, today()-90 to today()) and the next three months (today() to today() + 90) (on two separate charts). I have to manually update the x axis's minimum and maximum each day. you can set up formulas in cells to calculated your desired max/mins a...

how can i get a cell to hold a zero in front of a digit ie. 01 or.
I have tried checking the zero values box but still just takes the zero from the front which I need for the table I am trying to plan. I don't want any decimal points in front You can do it three ways 1) If the 'number' you want to end up with is fixed length, say six characters, then Format>Cells...>Custom>000000 will do it 2) Format the cells as text in advance of entry 3) Prefix with a single apostrophe (').

How do I get macro to unmerge cells that have been previously merg
When I try to record the steps to unmerge 2 previously merged colums into 2 separate colums into a macro, when the macro is executed it tries to merge the colums instead of unmerging them? If I do the same steps without recording as a macro the unmerge works fine. Is there a trick invloved in recording a macro to do unmerging? Hmmmm not sure what's happening. Are you sure the cells you ar unmerging are merged (probably a daft question), merge/unmerge is toggle.

How to use out of bound data?
I used CAsyncSocket to send out of bound data. But the data only can be received by original data method. Has any one used this class to send and receive out of bound data? That's out of BAND data.

Data Validation Error
I have a spreadsheet with multiple drop down selection boxes setup using Data Validation, which all reference different lists.

I've tried clearing and resetting the Data Validation for this cell, but the dropdown arrow always remains (even when the validation is completely cleared off). Any thoughts on what might be causing this, or how to fix? Is it really a data validation d...

Finding data within a worksheet made up of links

For example: My sheet shows the number 100 but in the cell it reads =otherworkseet!a1 (the source from which the data is extracted. I want to find out how I can use find or a formula to show me every cell that has the 100 in it without converting it to raw da...
