Column Reference to External Source As a Variable
Can anyone help me convert the column referenced in the formula below into a variable that the user can define?
More specifically, I have several columns that I need to read from an external workbook (Short_Billy.xls). Each column to the right of column C represents an additional day out in a 14 day projection from today (whose data is held in column C).
In cell I5 of my active workbook (Inventory.xls), I would like the user to be able to enter a value representing the number of days out they would like to see the projection for (0=today=Column C, 1=Tomorrow=Column D, etc.). In cell I6, I...Text to columns
Once I use the Text to columns feature in Excel, it seems there is no way to
turn it off.
Anyone know if there is a way to reset this so that newly pasted text will
not continue to get broken up (for example by the space delimiter)
Presently the only way is to exit Excel and restart Excel - then pasted text
all goes into one cell regardless of spaces.
Hope I explained that well enough
I may have been to hasty in making this assumption, it appears that the
problem I described below is only happening on one workstation - this may

Can you add seperate column headings (A, B, C, ...) into one spreadsheet?
I'm attempting to alter the column sizes half-way through the spreadsheet
w/out affecting the upper column sizes...
Coolumn width belongs to the entire column and cannot be altered in separate
sections of that column.

A VB Code is used that has the following line:
Me.Visible = False (Me refers to the forms names frmBirthsearch)
After this line a second form (form2) is opned based on a query that reads
two dates from the frmBirthsearch using the line code:
DoCmd.OpenForm "frmBirthdates", acViewNormal
at this point frmbearthsearh is hidden.
What command shold I add after this in order to close the frmbirthsearch?

replace the decision maker).
I tryed to create a new field on the opportunity entity but there's no
