I need to look in *my* application data folder, but stupid Vista says "access denied" Not only is it *my* own profile - i am also an administrator Who is it that Vista thinks is denying??? Is this just another Vista cock-up or is there something i'm missing?? If it's named "Application Data", then it's either a left-over from XP or a junction point (which you can't open). Vista uses a new "AppData" folder under your user folder. -- Dave N. MS-MVP (Mail) Windows 7 Ultimate http://download.live.com/wlmail "...

I'm a newbie at this, so help is appreciated. I have an Excel sheet like this: Team A .600 =rank(b1,b1:b3) Team B .750 =rank(b2,b1:b3) Team C .300 =rank(b3,b1:b3) I want to get another cell to list how far they are from the #1 rank. So, cell d1 should be equal to .150 and d3 equal to .450. The percentages will change frequently, so it needs to figure out what is #1. I know I could just do =b2-b1 and b2-b3, but only because I can see the b2 is the highest percentage. Am I making sense? Is there a way to do this? TIA. BR =MAX($B$1:$B$3)-B1 etc. -- HTH RP ...

Hi All I need to rank numbers entered in column A in ascending order while recognising ties but not skipping ranking numbers. The numbers can range from 1 to 1,000 but there are only 40 rows of data in column A. Any help would be much appreciated. Kind Regards Celticshadow To do this with worksheet functions, you need to sort your list in your desired (Ascending) order. If your numbers start in A2, then in B2, enter a 1, and in B3, enter the formula =IF(A3=A2,B2,B2+1) and copy down. IF your numbers cannot be sorted, then you would either need another helper column or VBA. -- HTH, ...

Hi, I am trying to create a ‘to-do job’ spreadsheet that will automatically insert new ‘tasks’ according to their priority. For example, on the sheet I currently have 10 tasks - entered manually. However, the more tasks I have, the longer I spend re-assigning rank order numbers. I would like the sheet to: • insert a new task e.g., Pick up TV. let’s say, into position number 5. This would result in “Sweep Drive” moving down to number 6 and all the other jobs would subsequently be moved down one cell. • Allow me to keep adding jobs if necessary. I think I may need an ‘Update ...

Hello, MS EXCEL 2003 on XP PRO. for the overall simplicity of my spreadsheet, I want to use a rank as a unique identifier so I use VLOOKUPS. My problem is that RANK() is VERY likely to return repeated ranks (3 second places for instance) and thus mess up my whole day. I found that the correction offered in F1 Help =(COUNT(AB:AB) + 1 - RANK($AB4,$AB:$AB,0)- RANK($AB4,$AB:$AB,1))/2 to produce the same effect. Does anyone have a recommendation on how to rank say, {1,2,2,2,3,3,4,5,6,7} with out repeating the rank? (largest is Rank = 1)? {10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1} are the ranks...

How do you get around the duplicate problem when you use the ran functio -- Message posted from http://www.ExcelForum.com If your #s are in A2:A11 and are named "Range", then in B2 put thed regular rank formula, =RANK(A2,Range,1), and fill down to B11.

A school where kids only spend 2 and a half hours formal instruction a day (as in, 1 hour maths, 1 hour literacy, half an hour of science, history or a language on alternating days?) Then the rest of the time they are given the option of choosing what they want to do with the resources offered by the school? Like working in the garden, playing a sport, joining a club, signing up for elective classes, or private study in the library etc. Once they get to 15 or 16, they sit down with a counselor guide and "map out" the sort of things they'd want to do, and organise ...

Is there such a thing as a RANK function which returns results...NOT in lowest to highest...but highest to lowest?? In other words, if your array is 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10... and you ask the RANK function to return (3,A1:A10)...instead of 3 for the result, I would like to see 7!! please advise, larry Hi not quite sure if I miss something but why don't you use =RANK(3,A1:A10) though it will return 8 not 7 :-) For changing the order enter =RANK(3,A1:A10,1) this will return 3 HTH Frank >-----Original Message----- >Hi >not quite sure if I miss something but why don't ...

We have many programs (Access, SAP, etc.), that when they try to export to Excel, Excel always tries to convert our part numbers into dates. For instance, we have a part number, 1944-1-5, that needs to be exported to Excel as a text value, 1944-1-5, not converted to a date, like 1/5/1944. And no, putting quotes around it is not practical, since we have thousands of part numbers. I have successfully exported from Access using the TransferSpreadsheet method in a macro or VBA (instead of the standard "File | Export..." menu selection) without the date conversion occuring.
