Looking for cells containing numbers
in a column with cells containing either text or numbers I have to exclude
those with text in an arithmetic formula as is runs through the whole column,
hence avoiding an error as a result when reading text cells.
A cloumn holding an intermediate result of the reading as "0" or "1" or
something will be just fine.
You might be thinking of something like this ?
Assuming the col with text/numbers is col A, A1 down
Put in B1: =IF(ISTEXT(A1),0,A1)
Copy B1 down
Then use col B instead of col A for downstream calcs

You can create a default constraint on the table set to CURRENT_TIMESTAMP. That will handle the automatic date
assignment without any need for coding.
-...reducing file size
In an excel file, I just deleted a picture. When saving the fil again, I
noticed that the file size grew instead of being reduced. Does anyway know if
excel "save" things you delete, and if so how can you permantly delete things
to reduce file size?
Your used range has probalby gotten messed up. Look for any sheet where the
scroll bars take you well past the end of the data. Hitting Ctrl + End on
these sheets will also take you out the the data range. Here is a link on
fixing the used range.

3. Change the first dropdown (on the left) to "Formula Is"
4. Enter the following formula in the textbox to the right of "Formula Is":

When I save my Excel spreadsheet, Excel adds a 1 to the
file name (file.xls becomes file1.xls). When I remove the 1
and save it, it responds with the overwrite message? It
just started doing this several weeks ago and I can't
figure out why. Anyone know what's going on?
Are you sure that the additional 1 is added when you're doing the save?
Could it have been added when you were opening the workbook? If you try it
again, do you see: File1 (instead of File.xls) in the title bar?
If yes, then it sounds like you've opened the file via a double click in windows
explorer. And ...insert an interactive excel file into word web page

There is a list of product names in C17:End(xlUp).Row, that have different

The macro looks at Column A in the worksheet & compares it to the product
Where it finds a product name match, it goes across to columns I:BJ (on the
matched row) and applies the product name's background colour to any "active
cells" (i.e. value >0).

You probably have formatted or otherwise used some rows below or
columns to the right of your data. On the bloated workbook, select the
sheets individually and press Ctrl + End. If the last row and column
is well below where you think it should be, you'll need to delete the
empty rows and columns.

overcome with worksheet activate code?

When I print a simple array of individually bordered cells, the result has

content, with the worst distortion at bottom of array. In other words, the

What does Print Preview show you? It sounds like a printer driver problem.

Run Publisher, open your file and do,
Save as a Web page
This will create the html files and the gif files. Upload all the files
except the .pub file.
And don't do what I did on my first web page project, deleted the pub file.
You will need it to make changes with your web page. You open the pub file,
make changes, save as a web page and upload the new files.
