Copying cell contents to a list
First of all - apologies if this is in the wrong group. I wasn't sure if it
should be newusers (which I am) or programming (which I might need).
I have inherited a lottery syndicate at work after the previous organiser
retired. He kept an Excel 97 spreadsheet with 8 columns - A (Date), B to G
(Winning numbers) and H (Bonus number). This list has now grown to about 800
rows as each draw's numbers are added to the bottom of the list (I will be
removing about 600). I have adapted the spreadsheet to automatically check
our numbers against the winning numbers (using HLOOKUP) after I have ...Tab to specific cells
I am using excel 2002 and my boss 2003. I want to tab to specific cells in

You could try the named range approach.
Select your *second* cell for data entry and then hold down <Ctrl> and
continue to select all the rest of the desired cells in order, ending with
selecting your *first* cell *last*.
While the cells are still selected, click in the name box and give this
range a short name such as "Entry1".
Now, when you're ready for data entry, simply click on the range name in the
name box. The focus for the range is th...can I find merged cells?

...Selecting text for Emailing
I have question that maybe someone could help me with. I have a database
where on the form I placed a command button to send emails. Works great and
in fact, I even got it to pull the information from selceted fields on the
current record. What I would like to know is:
Is there a way to pick up the name of the field and have the information
that was inputted in that field appear next to the name in the email?
Currently my email body picks up only the information so the loan number
field only shows the loan number and the Date In field only show a date.

I would like a cell automatically formatted in the same way a conditional
format works - but the format to be based on the value of an adjacent cell.
Any ideas as I cant work out how or if I can achieve this
Cumbo, Use Conditional Formatting, but change cell valve is to formula is
and use something like this, will change the cell if A1=25
=$A$1=25, so if you select B5 and put this in conditional formatting cell B5
will change when A1 = 25
Always backup your data before trying something new

Feedback on an...calculation of cells
Periodically I open a work book and the calculation option
has been changed to manual and I cannot figure out why. It
seems that it would have to be done by a user and most of
my spreadsheets are only used by me.
Any ideas out there
Calculation, auto or manual, is set by the first workbook that's opened. It
is that way for any other workbooks opened in that instance of excel. Look
for a workbook you might have opened first that's been set to Manual and
saved that way. Go figure.
