Number of characters in a cell
I want to count the number of characters in a cell. I have been told there is a way/formula you can use, rather than importing the table into word and using word count. Is there formula, if so what is it.

I am trying to add the totals given in Columns C, E, G etc etc of each

I'm having trouble referencing a merged cell in another workbook.
Say I merge cells A1 to C1 in workbook 1. When I make this the active cell,
the Name Box says "A1". When I go to another workbook (say, workbook 2), go
to cell B1, type "=" and then go to the merged cell and select it, I get
'workbook1'!$A$1:$C$1 as the formula and, of course, the "#VALUE" error.
I've successfully tried typing "=sum(" without the quotes hen clicking on
the contents of the cell and then adding the ")" and it works O.K. but there

Normally, I like to use the keystroke method of copying cells by copying a

do the arrow, it is not moving. Anyone know what happened?

I want to copy values from cells with a special custom number format.
the cell value is displayed as 1060028 but it's literal value is 28.
When I look at the number format in "format cells" it says the number format
is 10600##. If I copy this cell from one to another even using "paste
special values" it only returns 28.
How can I copy the cell value 1060028 as a complete string? Would I use a
function or would I have to use some VB script?
The format should copy along with the value. Just use Paste, not PasteSpecial

I have a single domain with two sites, one for the main office and one for

only use the Exchange server on site. If in a case our main office is

...Cells(my_crt_row,my_crt_col+1) crashes for my_crt_row>65536
I tried this in Excel 2007, where the worksheets may have 1M rows.
Why does this crash?
In Excel 2000 to 2003, this thing worked fine for my_crr_row<=65536, as I
expected. But now, having more rows in a sheet, why does this not work for a
larger row number?
If you're running in 97/2003 compatibility mode (as you must if the wb is in xls format), you're still limited to 65536 rows and 256
columns per sheet.

I have a situation where I am referencing data on another workbook. The
reason behind this is the data in Column H can be entered incorrectly and
often is. I am able to prevent this going forward but can not do so for the
items already entered. I enter a formula via VBA, however, sometimes the
result will be #N/A and if so I would prefer to leave the old value and just
highlight it that it needs to be verified by hand.
I am not sure if I can just "leave" the value as it has pretty much already
been replaced. Due to this, I copy the column to a different colum...Using one table instead of another?

...copy role from business unit to another
can i copy any role form business unit to another business unitwith crm 1.2
You cannot copy a role from a business unit to another. You will have to
create them yourself there. If you create a sub business unit, they will copy
the roles as well, but copying them later is not possible by default.
You can take a look at the database and do a copy on that level, but this is
not recommended or supported.

...Finding data in a unknown cell
Hi, hope someone can help.
I have a spreadsheet which has items and their respective quantitys in
2 simple columns.
The item names are consistent and do not change, however the items and
their position within the spreadsheet changes everyday as it is taken
from an external source.
I can find whether ITEMx exists easy enough with the COUNTIF function*,
however since it's position will change everyday I can't put in a
static formula of it's quantity since I won't know the cell it's in (I
don't want to do it manually).
Basically is there a function to display a cell to t...Wanted -to know how to post FILE NAME and DIRECTORY at bottom of my worksheet
