Is there a possibility/way to run an SQL query in an excel data sheet?
I have quite some data like the sample below, now i would like to have the
sum of spending for each person. Like it is possible in Access.
Advice would be appriciated.

I have successfully sorted my data to show repeating entries in
relation to two specific columns. I can't seem to figure out how to
select these repeating entries (without doing it manually, of course)
and putting them either into their own column(s) or an entirely
different spreadsheet altogether.
The goal is to save time in managing THOUSANDS of documents in this
manner so that my colleagues can easily pick up repeating entries and
take according action. Doing it manually is very time-inefficient.

Formula or VBA?
I am trying to create a formula to assign a region to populate a chart. I
know there is a way to use the OFFSET function to point ot a certain section
of a data sheet, but what if i insert a line between the title and the
data.(done programmactically)? the problem is that inserted lines do not
automatically include into the data range for a chart.
The data wants to be sorted from newest to oldest. Would it be easier to
create a formula to assign a 'chart data area' or simply reassign the data
area every time the table is updated
Thanks for the input.

I have enjoyed some things about Word 2007, but I keep having problems
with macros and templates. I am wondering if (a) macros increase the
likelihood of corrupting the normal template in 2007, or (b) if the
older versions of Word had as many template problems. I have used Word
in 2000, with Office 2003, and now with Office 2007 and I don't ever
recall having as many problems as I've had with 2007.
What I'm thinking is that if it is simply a macro problem causing
corruption, I would simply use 2007 without the macros (they're nice
but I can live without them). On the...Send from Word

That's the question. I have my data in Excel and the chart in Excel but not

and I want it to stay the same.
Any ideas on how to lock the chart?
Just a few ideas:
You could lock the cells that are shown in the chart.
Or you could copy the cells and paste as values (assuming formulas were used
that update when other cells change).
