Printing problem from Excel 2007
I am having an issue with printing from Excel 2007. Many users when
printing from Excel with get several pages of non-sensical "junk"
printed out on the pages. If it actually prints what is on the page,
none of the items are in the cells, but look like they are just
randomly thrown about the page. I have found that this most often is
related to the Calibri font somehow, because I instruct them to change
the font to Arial and all prints fine. That being said, if the user
converts the Excel sheet into a PDF and print, it prints perfect. This
is a great workaround, but kind ...Excel Mail Merger Problem

I am using Excel 2007 for the first time and find the gridlines delineating
the cells are so faint as to be nearly indistinguishable. I can go into the
cell formatting and modify the normal style, and it is just the way I want
it. But I can't find a way to make Excel remember this and treat it as the
new definition of the Normal style. I don't want to have to redefine Normal
every time I open a new spreadsheet. Someone please help!

...lost data when opening excel workbooks ; text import wizard popup
When opening many of my excel files ,which all have the same modification
date, I come across the text import wizard which states that my text in these
files is 'delimited'. All of the files ,including a few word doc.s have had
their data changed to show all " y " with two dots above the letter for as
far as the eye can see. No import or export has been done with the files and
no modifications were done on that date, as far as I know.
Is this a corruption problem or is their some 'fix' that I am overlooking.
Thanks for any ideas.
...conversion lotus 123 files to excel -- problem
I am converting lotus123 files to excel2002. One problem is that in lotus, literals are ignored when found in a cell within a formula.

Is there a way to handle this in excel other than manually having to change all the formulas?

The above is an example, but it aplies to any menu. Before, if I pressed say,

the submenu. Now I have to press Enter, before the C, which is a bother.

Alt F C still works.

I have a problem with my spreadsheet under Excel XP. The problem
has to do with cell references not updating when a row is inserted
into the worksheet. The formulas in the cells are relatively simple:
I can copy a row and insert it elsewhere or just insert a blank
row and the cell references in rows below are not updated in all
cases. It seems that rows that are separated from the inserted
rows by a blank row are updated.
Is this a known issue or does anyone have any suggestions on how
to fix this?

You can't do that in Excel.

I have a chart setup, currently with reference to 31 cells width.
The chart looks great if the user places a value in each of the 31 cells,
however if there are only say 20 values placed across the cell row, the
chart is displayed over to one side, with nil values displayed where no dat
values were entered.
Is there a way to have the chart automatically vary the width depending on
the amount of values entered across the refernced row of cells?
If there was only 20 values entered, then the chart would show 1-20 charted
and leave out the 21-31.
