How do I count the number of cells
I have several dozens columns and 52 rows containing Data.
All the columns are labled Odd or Even
In the final (right most) Column I want to count the number of times that
that coulmn has data in it
The last row belows shows what the answer should be
Odd Even Odd Even Odd Even Odd
5 1 2 ????? ?????
1 7 6 3 ????? ?????
5 1 2 ????? ?????
1 2 9 3 1 3
- will count the number of non blank cells.
In the brackets place the range name (for example A1:A2).
Please hit Yes if my comments have helped.
I'd like to know if there someone has written a RMS report that shows the
customer account number, customer's name (last, first), and other customer
statistics that INCLUDE pieces purchased and pieces returned.
Or, if someone with more knowledge of SQL would care to share their coding
expertise to accomplish the same, it would be appreciated.
...Dynamic unlock a cell (under condition)
Hello guys, lets see if anyone could help me out on how to do this:
I have a sheet protected with a password, the reason of this (you know)
is that there are some cells that are locked (to not see their formulas
or 'cause I don't want them to be changed under any circustances).
This is working fine, but now I have the need of some cells (two ranges
actually, these are E7:E56 & N7:N56) that they come locked by default
but under certain conditions I would need them to get unlocked.
Taking an E7 as example, let's say that depending on what we have in B7
this E7 will chang...Comments in Cells
Is there a way to show the comments against a cell when printing a worksheet
You can print the comments as they display on the worksheet, or at the
end of the worksheet. There are instructions in Excel's Help, and here:

My spreadsheet has a VLOOKUP through 44,000 rows that only needed to be
performed once. The relevant data is in the VLOOKUP cells as I want them and
the lookup values will never change. As long as I keep the other worksheet
intact, can I convert the VLOOKUP formulas to absolute references? My
spreadsheet is running very slow with the VLOOKUP in place, so I'm trying to
speed things up. Would this idea work?
You can try to convert all the formulas as values by using copy and paste

You could use a worksheet_change event macro within your sheet module to do
this when you enter a value into the last column of the existing row.

Message posted from http://www.ExcelForum...Protecting Cells #4
I want to protect a few cells in a worksheet - not the whole worksheet. How
do I do it?
Sorry, you have to protect the whole worksheet, then UNprotect all of the
cells except those that you wish to secure. Alternative may be to provide
data validation on the cells that you wish to protect, but this is not
particularly secure (copy/paste will override, for example). For that
matter, nothing is secure, I guess.

When returning an item, can you return the item by selecting the matrix
rather than the individual item and changing the quantity to -1?
Normally this won't work as it works in sale where for each matrix type you
can put the qunatites. HOWEVER when you select the matrix item it bring the
matrix window but allow only one item at a time to be returned and make the
-1 qty automatically in return document type. It work but one by one.

Maybe changing the printarea (file|print area) would help.
Maybe changing the option under File|page setup|Page tab

to 1 page wide to 1 page tall
