Excel is sluggish
This seems to be a software issue with Excel and Word.
When I went to the Microsoft site and entered my software
serial number into their site, they said that because I
had purchased the software through Gateway, that I had to
ask Gateway for assistance. Gateway says to ask
Microsoft. Go figure.
Here is the problem. If I open a small document in Excel
or Word and I am not connected to the Internet, it opens
in about 1 second. If I try to open the same document
and I am connected to the Internet, it takes about 25
seconds. This started happening within the past week.

I need to know how to take a known inch per Minute and divide by a known
measurement and displayed as minutes and seconds. The answer of the equation
(minutes and seconds) is where I'm having trouble.
Actually, you need to divide your measured length by the known rate (inches
per minute). This gives you the number of minutes, but to display using m:ss
format you need to divide by 1440, the number of minutes per day (since
Excel counts time as the fraction of a day).
So put your measurement in A2, your rate in B2, and this formula into C2:
Then format C2 using a custom...Using insert to paste a row--how done in Excel 2007
In my old version of Excel, I could copy a row or chunk of rows, move to a
new spot and use the "insert row" icon to insert the rows and paste it
automatically. Now in Office 2007 it just inserts a row instead of what I
have copied. I want it the old way! How do I do it?
R-click, Insert Copied Cells.

I'm doing bioinformatics work in which I often download tab-delimited
files describing genomes and open them in Excel. Unfortunately, Excel
decides that genes with names like APR1 and SEP7 are actually dates,
and reformats them as such. This is a huge headache, as I often don't
notice these problems until much later.
Is there anyway to completely disable this date autoformatting? I've
searched high and low and have yet to find a solution.
