...learning Excel #3
I was considering learning Excel as an additional tool for my data analysis
Is it better to use data sets that I have previously used with SPSS and
apply the same analysis tools as in SPSS? For applying the appropriate
tools, I was considering using excel's online help.
The second option I have is to use some excel book for data analysis and
apply the techniques to data sets provided with the book.
...How do I Remove a Split from my Comments in Excel 2003? #2
I have set my current workbook to split/freeze the first column and first 2
rows. Now, when I add a comment to the second row (in any column) my comments

I don't ever remember the behavior before. And I don't know what I've done
to enable it but it's really annoying.

...default values in a cell
Hello, can you help me please
Cell B1 contains a complex mathematical formula which requires (in several
places) a number from cell A1.
Cell A1 can contain any integer number, but it is usually the same (30).
I would like to be able to leave cell A1 empty, and only enter a number when
it is not 30 ,
ie the default value of A1 is 30, unless specified.
How do I go about this ?
Should I look at conditional formatting, or put lots of IF functions into an
already complex formula?
Thank as always

It sounds like you could use VLOOKUP to find out if the value in B exists on

The help states you can only add error bars to data series in 2D area. Is
there a way to add them to a 3D chart?
I would not have thought so. Obviously as it is not a built-in option
the only way would be a work around perhaps using dummy series.
Unfortunately you can create 3d combination charts.
Stick with the 2d view.
