New to excel
I'm new to Excel ( and to this forum :) ) and so I hope somebody may b
able to help me.
I've got 2 questions....

2005'!B19,"UP",IF(B19='4th November 2005'!B19,"Same",IF(B19>'4t

I am using a line graph to show my weekly percentages for the year. I have a
goal of keeping these percentages below a specific value. I would like to
have a line across my graph at that specific goal value so I can see which
weeks have exceeded my goal percentage or have remained below it. Is there an
easy way to do this? Also, if possible, I would like my data line to change
color as it crosses that goal line. For example, the line would be black
below that specific goal value, but when the line crosses that goal value it
would turn red. Any suggestions?

Good Day board,
Quick and to the point. I'm installing a trial copy of Microsoft CRM 3.0
that I got at a computer conference recently and I've gotten everything
to work in the System Requirements dialog except that it's telling me
that "The minimum required version is SQL Server 2000 SP4 (8.0.2026)".
Strange this is that I do believe that I have SQL Server 2005 installed
on the machine.
Any idea how to be absolutely sure of what version I have installed?

As Frank said, that's the maximum cols

I have just upgraded to Pub2003. My old Pub2000 had no such feature. My
problem is when I cut and paste into the new Pub2003 it automaticly uses a
Line Spacing default "After Paragraphs: 9pt" - this whacks out all my old
logos and forms when they are copy/pasted in to a new Pub2003 .pub
If I open an old (2k) .pub file with Pub2003 the spacing is fine - if
figures out the Line Spacing is "After Paragraphs: 0pt"
...Linking files 2 ways
I have a work book that is linked to another and vise versa.
Workbook A is where the input of data is made;
Workbook B has a link to the input from workbook A;
Workbook A retrieves the altered data back as a link.
Although this all works fine with both books open, I note that if I open
workbook A by itself, that the data it retrieves from Workbook B is not
updated . If However, both books are open, there's no problem. I thought
linked books were updated automatically if the Update remote references has
been selected?? But it appears that the second book is not updated until it

Is there a way to specify a relative path to an XML data file imported into
Excel 2003? I am writing a web app that generates report data as XML for the
user to download to their local machine. This data is to be consumed by an
Excel reporting spreadsheet, which contains display-formatted tables and
charts that are mapped to various data fields in an XML Map, which is in turn
linked to the xml data file they will download.
The idea is the user only needs to download the data for updates, not the
whole spreadsheet. However, since I cannot predict the path where the user
will store their...Changing Cells and entering data in them

I have set my current workbook to split/freeze the first column and first 2
