Make a name = column cell range in table?
I have a table with a header containing names for each column.
Somehow I ended up with names defined for each column, but the
range doesn't automatically expand to encompass the full column
height (when I increase the rows in my table). Is there some means
of configuring things so the column names appearing in my table
header will automatically be defined?
Check out this web page of Debra Dalgleish:

I created columns and rows; however, the 4th column has a column that I had

You'll be able to see if there is a hidden column, because the column
letters which you can see will not be consecutive, so you would see A B C E
F or something similar in the column headings.

Hi, I've got a macro that copies formulae in column W, pastes in column X,
then copies this and pastes values (it's probably very uncouth however).
What I'd like to to is tie this in to a loop so that it repeats along to
column CC, without having to copy in the below formulae 58 times. Any help
would be appreciated.

I am using Excel 2007
In earlier version of Excel, I used to utilise a special function (with icon
of Camera ?) to copy the contents of a range of cells alongwith the formating
to another place in the worksheet, in a sort of 'picture' or 'mirror' so that
the column alignment is for columns above the range copied is NOT done. This
has a special advantage in a complex Form.
Otherwise, when I split a range of cell columns, unfortunately the whole of
the column from top of the workshee to the bootom gets split, thereby
disfiguring the other portion of the form.
How t...Data Validation -> Validation list is larger than the cell width
I have a workbook that I've just added data validation to one cell. FWIW,
the data validation is based on a named range. Here's the (perceived)
problem. When I've set up data validation in the past, the selection is the
same width as the cell. In this case, the list starts almost a full cell
width to the left. What am I missing?
In Excel2003 I can replicate what you describe under the following conditions:
1. the named range contains entries that are wider than the data validation
2. The data validation cell is r...Text to Columns...
Does anyone know the official function of the menu option
called "Text to Columns..." which is found under
the "data" option on the menu bar? How does it work?
What is it supposed to do? Answers to these questions
would be appreciated.
It allows you to separate text in a cell or column of cells either
by position (fixed) or based on a delimiter, and place the separated
data in one or more columns. It can also do some rudimentary data
manipulation, including parsing dates, converting numbers to text,

I want to set data validation on a cell so that it will accept the following
(and only the following) text strings:
(1) "BR" (literally)
(2) "NT" (literally)

A may take any of the values "L", "P", "T", "V" or "Y"

A may take either of the values "K" or "D".
Is this possible, please, and if so how? thanks

I have set up a data form and have data validation rules on the various input
cells. I see that there is an option called "Ignore blanks" in the data

an input cell without entering valid data, if the "Ignore blanks" box is
unchecked. I have tried to do this, but it does not seem to work. Please

I'm running XP Pro, SP3.
Attempting to install a program from Nero.
Software keeps failing at startup, despite numerous re-installs.
During installs, it keeps attempting to update the 'reboot validator' which
it does not seem to be able to do.

an MS problem.
Never heard of it but Nero Support should know about it: Reboot Validator

I have a sheet that is essentially just columns of data (except for the
column headings in the first row), and two of the columns are what I would
call 'mutually exclusive': i.e. if a value is entered in a row in either
column, the user must be prevented from entering any value in the same row
of the other column. The two columns already have some basic validation
applied (ranges of permissable numerical values), and this validation would
need to be applied for any values that are entered.
I am sure this can be done, but cannot see how!
Hope someone can help.
