Count text cells if condition in row is true, over many rows.
Using Excel 2003 - 84 columns, up to 250 rows. By groups of 3 adjacent
columns, I want to put (in merged cell at top of each group of 3) a formula
showing total of cells with text, IF a separate cell in column CM in each row
has a particular value.
So, there will be 28 totals (84/3) in top row. If CM2="E", CM3="S",
CM4="E", CM5="E", CM6="S", etc, and using condition "E", the formula in
merged D1 will count all text cells in columns D,E,F of rows 2,4,5,etc. The
formula in merged G1 will count all text cells in columns...Assign number value to a field with text in it?
Is this possible to do?
I want a cell to have a number assigned to it, but display text in the
cell, so I can use the cell in a mathmatical formula.
I'm using Excel 2003 to track how many seats I have left in each
conference room. I want the name of a room to equal a number.
For example: I want the text "Executive Room A" to equal 105

'&' needs to be escaped as & but the '+' sign does not need to be
escaped in XML.
How you do it depends on the .NET APIs you use, if you use an
XmlTextWriter to create XML then the WriteString method for instance
does the escaping for you.

What extra spaces? Do you mean the extra space between letters and words? If
so... then are you sure you really want justified text? Extra space between
letters and word are how Word accomplishes justification. With
proportionally spaced characters and uneven amounts of text on each line,
justification requires it.
There are different justification methods that can be selected using Word
options... Perhaps one of them will give you something c...Text is not showing up in cell. Why not?

I have a text field with 4,5 or 6 character text content. In a query,
how can I extract all records with a length of 4 and then add 6

For a select or update query?
Add an expression field to the query which has len(trim([MyField])) as the
expression, and 4 as the criteria.
Then add another expression field, with the expression as "000000" & [MyField]
If you are using an update query, the "000000" & [MyField] will go in the

We have a number of Excel users in our office who cannot copy and paste

you highlight the section to copy and then go to the new workbook both the

mouse, go to the edit menu, or use control keys. This occurs with any data
type and the most simple workbooks. I have seen some suggestions here but
none have worked for this particular problem. I have reset the menus and

That line is not the longest line.
Try formatting the cell as General (not Text).
If you need more than 1000 characters to show up in the cell, add a few
alt-enters to force a new line--you didn't ask--but it's a common question with
cells containing a lot of text.

I am developing a scheduling program for my workplace. The program will
