Hi all. I'm a relative newbie to using Excel and am stumped.
I'm trying to find the last (non-zero) value in a column. The cells
all have a function in them presently like =IF(C8>0,SUM(B8:C8)," ")
presently so that the cell truly is not empty. I've tried using
=LOOKUP(2,1/(D2:D350>0),D2:D350) but it displays nothing since all the
cells have a value (the function above).
How do I find the last cell having a numeric value (which is what the
first function provides)? Any help is greatly appreciated.

I have come across a spreadsheet in Excel 2000 which exceeds the 65536

consequence is that 'Calculate' is permanently diplayed in the status bar,
AND (much more important), it cannot keep track of circular references.

the circular references and correct them.

Does anyone know why it's sometimes possible, but not always, to use a rule
to move or copy a message to a public folder? I don't seem to be able to
select the public folder; I can select it, but it doesn't stick. The
inconsistency is a bit weird. I can't even make a, 'from scratch' exact
copy of a currently working rule that moves a message to a public folder.

I use Excel for my job. When I enter a long text sentence
into a cell that is larger than the cell, it gets covered
up because the text wrapping is on. I want the sentence to
wrap around to the next line, but Excel doesn't
automatically adjust the size of the cell when it sees
that the text is longer. I end up printing out my work and
only half of the sentence is there. I can resize it
myself, but I want Excel to resize it when it sees that
it's covering it. I can't see why anyone would actually

Yes. Assuming that your numbers are in column A, insert =Random() in column
