...Using part of a cell in a chart title
I have a chart which should get a title. However, this should be partly be
used from a cell e.g.
"counted with 5%"
5% should be taken from the cell and used in the title.
Is this possible?
Yes it's possible but all of the chart title needs to be in the cell. So you
may need to use a helper cell and concatenate text and value.

Each time i try to enter a number range, for example, 8-

random number, usually 38209. I would like to turn off
ALL auto-formatting, but that's probably asking too
much. How do I disable this frustrating feature?
When you enter "8-10" in a cell, that's not strictly a number but Excel
thinks you mean a date so converts it as such.
A date is a number and in your example the number 38209 represents August 10

Suddenly I am getting the following message when I try to close a workbook:
"Your formula contains an invalid external reference to a worksheet.
