format chart textbox font
I have a text box linked to a cell in a table in the same workbook. I want to have the font color of the text to reflect that which is in the cell. e.g. I have a dollar figure in the cell. It is in a black front for positive values, and red with parenthese () for negitive figures. At present, I have a negitive dollar figure which reflects in the sheet as a black $(3,813.47). How can I make the font format in the text box follow the spreadsheet's format? Text boxes do not have a number format property. There are two alternative ways to get what you want: Use data labels instead, whi...

Conditional formatting #50
Hi, The worksheet I've been working on uses paste links to carry forward workers details from one worksheet to the next. These cells are left unprotected so the chain can be broken if a person leaves, and someone new has to be inserted. This is fine but it makes it tricky to spot where breaks occur. Can conditional formatting tell the difference between a formula and text entered? If so can someone please give me an example that I can use. Many thanks.

Referencing a sheet by taking its name from a cell
I'm not even sure the title of this post is correct but it's as clear as I could make it! I'm creating a summary sheet of data from many other worksheets. The worksheet names are mmm-yy (e.g. Nov-07). The top row of the summary sheet will contain those same names, with the summary data in the column below. I'm trying to find a way to reference the correct sheet by utilising the name in the top row. Something like ='A2'!C7 , I suppose, but this particular attempt didn't work. Can someone help? Thanks!

Account Framework, Account Format, & Default COA
Someone please tell me if I have this straight. When you first install GP, there is a default account framework which is set to max length of 66 with max segments of 9. Which means you can have up to 9 segments divvied up any way you wish as long as the total of all segments does not exceed 66 characters. Correct? And for which there is really no need to change this. Correct? Now, when you setup a company you can setup your account format any way you want as long as it =93fits within=94 the account framework. So, if you leave the account framework set to the defaults you can set...

pasting or moving formula cells without updating formulas
I have a flat spreadsheet with a results page at the end. The results page contains a set of formulae which refer to various cell locations within the body of the spreadsheet in order to return statistical results based on the values in said cells. Now I'd like to add more data to my spreadsheet, so i need to make it bigger; however, when I copy and paste, or select and drag the cells containing the formulae, Excel updates the formulae so that they refer to different cells which bear the same spatial relationship to the formulae as the original referees did before the formulae were ...

Calculate sum of a field within the query
I have a query that returns the details for a failure record during a specified time period. Where if I search between 1/1/08 and 1/31/08 the query returns the records of all failure records during that period. The row shows the part number and the total parts failed for that record. I need the query to then sum the total part failures for the previous 12 months. So I would see the following: Record # | part # | parts failed | Origination Date| Total Parts failed past 12 months 44444 | x | 4 | 1/2/08 | 200 44445 | Y |1 ...

Special format for feet
Many html tables list height as x-yy where x is feet and yy is inches. Excel imports this as a date.

Cells stay highlighted, cannot use mouse
When I click on a cell in excel, that cell shows as clicked on, but when I move the mouse all surrounding cells become highlighted as well. So I cannot input anything anywhere, as moving the mouse around just keeps highlighting cells. And I cannot shut excel down as trying to move the mouse to a menu bar keeps highlighting cells in the worksheet. The only way to get out of excel is to End Task. I have come across this problem before, but I don't know how I inadvertently activate it, and to stop it was some combined of Ctrl-Enter but I can't remember what. Hopefully someone will un...

Calculating a percentage from values in two different fields

In the CustomerName footer, I want to calculate percent of Actual to Budget pe...

I have 2 pens, remove one and receive 2. answer in the cell becomes 3 pens then if I zero out the received cell the inventory cell still remembers that I have 3 pens not 4 pens (because I received 2 more pens) and visa versa when I zero out the received cell it remembers I have 3 pens not 1 pen(because I removed 1 pen) I believe the method you suggest is flawed.
