...How do i put a addition sign before a digit in the cell box?
Could u please help me out on this...
you will need to put a single quote in front of the number, treating it as
Cell A1 = '+6
Excel will convert it back to a number if you use it in a calculation such as
=A1 + 5 wil return 11.
Also you can convert it to a number for any formulas by using =Value(a1).

You could try a custom format of +General;General

I have a spreadsheet which is used as a scheme where you are to fill i
only a few of the cells. Other cells contain headings or description
or results of calculations based on what you write in the fill-i
cells. They are of course protected.
My question is how to make the cursor jump from the one fill-in cell t
the next, bypassing all info-, descrip- and calc cells. Pressing ENTE
repeatedly should make the cursor cycle through all the fill-in cells
and ONLY the fill-in cells.

I am having problems working out how to automatically place text from one

I have read the post on 10 April 07 "Repeat text in exact cells in

sign, then click the 1st sheet tab and the cell where you want to link to,
then press enter. "
When I do this, I get the formula showing up in the cell to be copied to (in

I have Publisher 2007. All my publisher documents have been designed up

I would like to find out how to obtain an age using dates
in microsoft Excel. I have a person's birthday and

You need to use the undocumented DATEDIF function.

Here's the problem. I would like to hide a selection of cells in a
column after the occurrence of a certain cell. eg. in column A if a

So If A3 contained 'MyCell' the cells below this cell would be hidden
and the values be copied to B4. The reason why I can't have them cut
