```Re: When any cell in row 19 (eg K19) equals X
I want the cell in row 25 3 cells before K19 (i.e. H25) to equal Y.

One way to get it done ..

In A25:
=IF(ISNA(MATCH("X",19:19,0)),"",IF(MATCH("X",19:19,0)<4,"",IF(COLUMNS(\$A:A)+3=MATCH("X",19:19,0),"Y","")))
Copy right across to IV25

Above of course, assumes that there's only a single "X" within row 19 at any
time. If you got more "X"'s in row 19, it'll return only the result for the
1st one (from the left)

p/s: You should always post your question in the message area. The subject
line is just that -- a brief liner hinting at the question -- it's not meant
to be the posting.

A simple IF(X=K\$19, X,"") ought to do the job (if i got the order of the
arguments right).  Then spread it across the columns of interest.

sorting error on non-merged cells
Excel 2002, WinXp Home My spreadsheet has columns for Number, Date, Text, etc. When I select a column to sort, Excel expands the selection to include all cells (as it should).

Finding combinations of cells that sum to near a value
Starting with a column of ~30 numbers, I'm looking for a way to have Excel find all combinations that sum to a target value +/- a specified range width. (For example, I may be looking for all combinations that sum to 1000 +/- 10.) I've found some code from Tushar Mehta that finds a list of all possible matches that sum to a number, but it doesn't allow me to put in a range to find sums to within a delta of this value. I tried modifying the code to add this in, but I couldn't get it to work right. Here is the code: http://www.tushar-mehta.com/excel/templates/match_values/index....

Do Not Want to count blank Cells
I copy pasted an Access dynaset (e.g., results of a crosstab query) into an Excel spreadsheet. I tried to use the function =counta(a4:z4) to count the number of entries (nonblank) in row 4.

Is there a way to count the entries without counting the blanks or a way to easily reformat or change the blank cells so the formula will not count the blanks.
