Hello, I'm an intermediate user of Excel, but I have lots of experience using Access. If you can give me clues on how to handle the information below using only Excel, I'd be grateful!

I'd like to create a new worksheet in the same Excel file which shows a single instance of each item used in Column "B".

Hi all I a very strange effect when using different decimal settings and calculating some values: DECLARE @Decimal1 decimal(5, 2) DECLARE @Decimal2 decimal(30, 2) SET @Decimal1 = 0.2 SET @Decimal2 = 0.2 SELECT (CONVERT(decimal(15, 15), 0.000000000322900) * (1 - @Decimal1)) SELECT (CONVERT(decimal(15, 15), 0.000000000322900) * (1 - @Decimal2)) The first result is correct (0.00000000025832000), the second is wrong, why ???

I'm opening a workbook using the Task Scheduler built-in Windows2000 and when the workbook is done doing what it's supposed to do, I issue an Application.Quit method in the VBA code to close Excel. In the Task Manager, the Excel application (I'm using Excel2000) and the workbook that was opened is not seen in the Application tab, yet there is an EXCEL.EXE in the Processes tab. Also, going in the Task Scheduler, the task itself is still running even though I issued the Quit to get out of Excel. Either stopping the task or ending the process gives me a dump in the Dr.Wat...

When creating drop downs in Excel (e.g., through Data Validation) is there any way to show a code along with descriptive info so that the code can be entered into the cell, but the descriptive info provides the user with an explanation of the code when they click the drop-down? If you can use programming, there's a sample workbook on my web site that shows a product name and code in the Data Validation dropdown list. After an item is selected, the cell shows only the product name. You could adapt this to your workbook. On the following page: http://www.contextures.com/excelfile...

Hello: I am using Excel 2003, and I have three columns of data. Some of the records of each of the three columns (a) have spaces between them and (b) have duplicates.

When a file is created in excel and is saved. When I want to check the file it is not there but there is one file with alphanumeric number with extension file which is my excel file. looks like it is the temp file. can this problem be avoided so that it keeps the file with the given name. When you save a file, excel will save it as a temporary file (8 characters, no extension). Then if that save is successful, excel will delete the original and rename this funny named file to the original's name. You see the results when something interferes with this process.

According to the example in Excel's help tool, the 30th percentile of (1,2,3,4) is 1.9. Can anyone provide any details on how Excel gets this result? My calculations give a different a result for the 30th percentile as follows: There's a 25% chance that a number selected from (1,2,3,4) is <= 1. There's a 50% chance a number selected from (1,2,3,4) is <= 2. Interpolating to get the number with a 30% chance gives me .8(1)+.2(2) = 1.2 for the 30th percentile of (1,2,3,4). Thanks.
