Excel Text Function
Hi anyone who can help me...
I have some info in a spreadsheet as follows:
A1 B1 C1
Centra Dublin Centra Belfast Centra London
If I want to get just Centra out into another cell I would
use =LEFT(A1:C1,6) and this works fine. But I want to
actually get out the area - Dublin, Belfast or London and
some other areas that might have more or less than 7
letters. Any ideas???
Thanks in advance
Ann (Dublin, Ireland)
will work if you have city names and centra..

In 1-2-3 I could stagger the text in the X-axis. In Excel it seems
that I can only rotate the text to 90 degrees.
Is there a way to stagger and leave horizontal?
Specifically, I have all the provinces (or 10 of them) across the axis
and they take up room when spelt out (no abbreviations allowed). I
would rather the first, third, fifth ... etc. be higher and the
second, fourth etc. be lower to allow the chart to be narrower and
still read the text clearly.

I use 2 simple worksheets daily. They contain little data and should be less
than 50k. I change them by copying data from various other spreadsheets into
them, then saving or saving as with a new name. Some of these spreadsheets
for some reason become very large (1.5mb or more) and moving from cell to
cell becomes very slow. Copying from those spreadsheets to new sheets can
take up to 30 seconds for a single cell to copy. There is nothing complex in
any of them, just text, some multiplication and sum. The sheets eventually
become so slow that the only way I can work with them is b...RPC over HTTP problem #3

I do a simple Cut & Past, the Reference Link to the Master Spreadsheet gets

Hi everyone! Using A02 on XP.
I have a table of data with survey response fields that contain a 0,1,2,3,4
or 5. However, the fields are formatted as text, not numbers. I need to add
up certain blocks (Items 1-6, Items 7-23, etc.) and then do some averaging.
I cannot change the field types from text. Must I append to a new table or
can I do something right in my query?
I've got one field in my query like this: ES:
My result is: 553453 or 554444, etc. I want: 25 or 22, etc.
I would really appreciate any help or advice. Thanks...How do I get excel to accept (c) as text and not change to copyri.

Go into the Tools Menu. Look for AutoCorrect. In the bottom half of the

I am trying to allow someone to select "Green", "Yellow" or "Red" from a list
and the cell to display a green/yellow/red icon appropriately. Or, if
possible, the user could just select the icon (instead of selecting text).
Is this possible?
Use Data Validation for the list. Type in Red, Yellow, Green as the list.
This give the user the list to select from.
Use Conditional Formatting for the fill part. Set three conditions, If Cell
Value-"Green" (select a green fill), etc..
If this helps, please remember to click yes.

I am making a scatter chart (with lines) in Excel 2007 under
Vista. I can select a line style, for example, long dashes.
However, if I try to change the axis (change from "automatic" to
"fixed" on the horizontal axis), the line on the chart immediately
becomes solid again. The legend still shows the proper dashing.
I can get the dashing partly back by making the line thinner,
but only where the variation is fastest - regions where
the derivative is near zero are still solid even for thin lines.
I'll appreciate any help!
I was not able to reproduce this.

I am creating data in an Excel spreadsheet. I then want to get that data
into a simple text email. I have some problems and questions...
1) how do I get the columns of data to line up evenly when I copy the data
to email text ? Keep in mind I need to be in simple text format, not HTML
or rich text.
Every time I do this, all columns become chaos and are unreadable.
2) Is there a simple way to automate the creation of an email from an excel
file ? this is less important to me.
Thanks in advance

All is fine until it goes into standby when I am in admin. Then on wake up
