Creating a field to search and enter non duplicate data
I have a team of 15 pople that all work with reference numbers, on occasion
a number has to be sent to a different work group. I've created a spreadsheet
for them to enter the numbers into, but we have been duplicating numbers. I
want to create a field to enter th number into, have the field cross
reference the exsting numbers, and if it does not find a match, enter the
number and sort the list.
I know how to create a custom macro that will accomplish what I want to do,
but I'd prefer a static formula if it's possible.

So with Ctrl pressed I would select the cells I want. This way the name of
the worksheet was also coming in the chart defining range. I had around 8
data points and hence 8 different cells.
Now when selecting the cells one by one when I got to the 7th one Excel

One of our users has complained about, and I have
witnessed, a simple name and address spreadsheet that
places the text +A1 in various cells, after the correct
cell contents. This spreadsheet is not shared with anyone
nor does anyone else have access to it, so that eliminates
someone else messing with it. The text normally appears
after she has made changes elsewhere in the spreadsheet,
saves and then closes it. When she opens it again the
previously mentioned mystery text appears. Any ideas??
Does the workbook have macros?

Is it possible to set up text formatting to automatically put a drop
character on a paragraph? I have tried Modifying the Style for a paragraph
and have not been able to find a way.
I would like to be able to set this up so that the users of the publication
do not have to go to Format, Drop Cap everytime they need to use it.
Sorry this isn't available either... Might ask in the programming group.

I have created a User form to allow users to enter data
onto a report. To ensure that data entered does not
exceed the space available I have limited the number of
characters that can be entered, I want to put a box on
the form that will show the user how many characters that
they have available and I would like it to update as they
type so they know how much space they have available.
eg. 100 characters available to start, as they type this
would decrease accordingly, so if they typed "Hello" the
box would show 95 available.
How can I do this?

Enable identifying vendors and/or items to be non-backorderable from vendor.
(e.g. automatically cancel non-received items)
Many vendors do not backorder items. If an item is ordered and not shipped,
it must be reordered. The current system requires the PO to be Edited so
unreceived items are cancelled. This is an extra step and one if missed, is
bad. For example, when an item is not received it remains in "released"
status, which means the PO generator does not suggest a reorder. yet the
vendor isn't going to ship. We face stock shortages and lost sales. In a busy
