parsing a date and time field #2
I am having trouble parsing the date and time in a field. I download
data from a data base and the date and time come together in one
field. I want to seperate the two. The date and time comes across as
the following: "2/1/2009 14:37" in the cell. When I parse it, it
seperates into three columns as follows: "2/1/2009", 2:37 AM", and
"PM" I can see what is going on but I would like to get two columns
with one as the date and the other as the correct time. are they any
ideas on how to address this?
Try using the TimeValue and DateValue functions.

If you have chart sheets you can change the name by simply changing the

Can I have some help in this area? Can some one supply me with a sample

The best way to get started with macros is to use the Macro
Recorder. Go to the Tools menu, choose Macros, then Record New
Macro. Then, carry out some simple tasks and examine the code
that is produced.
...merging 2 cells without losing data?
How can I merge 2 cells without losing data from the other cell?
Not possible I'm afraid. Try placing the dat from both cells into one
and use "Center across selection" under Format>Cells>Alignment
Merge cells always end up causing grief. they are best avoided.

I use MS Monet 2007 premium. I have created a loan amortisation account
which breaks up my monthly instslment into pricipal and interest. The loan
commencd from 7 October 2005 and is for a period of 5 years. The problem is
that the loan account does ot show any loan instalments beyond 7 October
2006 (exactly 1 year after the commencement). Why is this happening. Why
is the account not updating with instalments which have been debited to my

Here is one for you experts - I am a novice
I want to add a macro to a worksheet that will print selected information
held on certain rows of the worksheet.
Once the 'button' has been selected a mesage box will pop up asking the user
to input which row number he/she wishes to print.
On input that number is matched to the corresponding row of the worksheet
and that row is copied (without any formula - just cell values) and pasted
into another worksheet where it is placed into other formats and printed.
Seems like a simple(!!) job - but far to difficult for me to programme

I am plotting in regularly basis a certain set of data in excel.
Based on some data analysis this set of data has to be fitted to these
y = 1/x^a (1) and /or
y = b/x^c (2)
from data analysis, constants a, b and c are found and are placed lets say
in cells A1, B1, C1.
On my graph, I am putting then two small text labels where the real equation
is displayed: smth. like: y = 1/ x^3.45 and / or y = 0.256 / x^3.12 The
whole process is similar with excel curve fitting, when the “show equation on
chart” is checked.

A spreadsheet with charts was created using Excel 2003. I have Excel 2007
and saved it in compatibility mode.
I inserted a couple colored lines on the chart and created my own legend
based on these. A couple of issues:
1. When I close the file or even minimize, 2 of the colored lines on a
couple of my legends disappear upon reopening.
2. When I try to print a chart, it looks good in Print Preview, but then
looks magnified,half off the page, and only one of my drawn lines is printed.

...trying to link maps and pie charts
I was trying to link sales data stored in an excel table with a specific

even picture the data in piecharts (% sales for each competitor).
However there is very little flexibility with the look of the result: you
cannot choose the color of the slices of the pie, you may not display data on
the graph, and the maps do not look very professional.
I know it is possible to link automatically a table with a shape in visio.
Can this shape be a given country/region on a map? Can the callouts have th...Outlook Express 6 Spell Check #2

Is there a way to graph data which utilizes the "fixed" function for decimal
places? When I try this it will not graph, as the data has become text or
something - even though I've selected number in the cell formats.
If you've fixed the number of digits using only number formats, the values remain
numeric, and they should chart just fine. This means selecting the range, going to
the Formatting menu and selecting Cells, and on the Number tab, selecting Number in
the category list, and setting a number of digits.
