Column Headings #11
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.

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

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I am trying to group data together into increments of 10% of th
numbers and then chart them based on these groups. For example, I hav
300 data points that vary from 20 to 500 in value. I want them t
appear in a chart based on the number of values that fall in the lowes
10% of numbers (ie. 20-40) then the next 10% (ie. 40-60) etc. up to th
top 10% of numbers, but I do not want to manually determine what thes
ranges are. I want to see a distribution of how many numbers fal
within each 10% of values.

Just run another data|Text to columns against a dummy cell.

That's the way pasting works. It'll hit the visible and hidden cells.

Trying to come up with a formula or method that will enable me to sum values
based on a condition. For example, I have three columns which contain a
condition and two amounts. If the condition is of the 'each' variety, one value
will be used in the sum. If the condition is of the "square foot" variety,
another value will be used. Here is a small diagram that may help visualize

to the other four so they all have exactly the same width. Presently,

The only way is to create guides. Arrange, ruler guides. You could try creating

In a VS2008 VB project, I have a combobox that gets its value from a table

the value of a radio button (on the same form as the combobox) based on the

I'm setting the ComboBox.Text value to be the first column,
the ComboBox.SelectedValue to be the second column, but how would I change
the radio buttons in the most efficient way?
