blocking blank cells until other cells are compiled
I'm working on several columns. Each column corresponds to a certai
date. I would like the fields under the date cell to be "available
only if the date cell is filled. How do I do this?
Say in cell "A1" I have today's date and in "B1" tomorrow's (and s
on). In cell "A2" I want to put the number of dollars I have spen
during lunch and in cell "B2" I will want to do the same, but onl
tomorrow of course.

How do I get the whole spread sheet to sort? There is a blue lox for the

Using Office 2003.
Maybe if you remove the Data|list
Select a cell in that blue box.

Can anyone tell me why, when I select a cell near the bottom of a page, 3-4
rows seem to be sected as well?
Thanks in advance
You are probably in Extend mode. Look at the bottom right of the Status
Bar, look for Extend, its location and wording depend on version. If it is
on press Esc or F8.
If this helps, please click the Yes button

I'd like to have the macro to select row 5 to 10 in the active column. May I
know what is the VB code to write?
dim myRng as range
dim myCol as long
mycol = activecell.Column
set myrng = .range(.cells(5,mycol),.cells(10,mycol))
I'm not quite sure why you want to select that range. But for the most part, if
you act directly on the range (and avoid .selects), you're code will work faster
and be easier to modify.
Dolph...Cannot hide cells
I have a spreadsheet that is setup columns A-IV and need to hide columns but
after a while get the message "cannot shift cells off sheet"
any ideas its driving me nuts
How are you hiding the columns?
It sounds like you might be adding columns or moving cells to the right to
hide them from the view.
If you have items in Column IV you can not do this.
If you are doing it as<format><columns><hide>
about howmany times do you do it before you have the problem.
(I cant make it happen on my computer)
If you are doing it another way, What is it?

I want to create a report that has 3 sub-reports of different column widths.
Is this possible?
-The 1st sub-report has 1 column that occupies the entire width of the page
-The 2nd sub-report can fit 2 columns in the page width
-The 3rd sub-report can fit 3 columns in the page width
Subreports can have any number of columns that don't have to be the same from
one to another. Typically your columns should display across then down in
order to render properly as a subreport.

I can't seem to find the option that prevents text from

For example if I type the folling in cell A1:

Obviously that will overflow over the cell B1 (if there
is no data in B1). I don't want to resize my column, I
only want the cell to show as much text in A1 as possible
without covering cell B1.
I believe I've seen the option to do what I'm looking for

...Is Auto Expansion (i.e., wrap text) of a cell possible when the cell's contents are based on another cell?
I am trying to display the results from one tab (Tab 1) in another
So, for example, tab 2 contains the formula "=Tab1!A2".
However, when the results are too large to fit the cell in tab 2
(i.e., the cell that contains a formula that draws from a cell in tab
1), the wrap text feature does not work unless i first double click in
the cell in tab 2.
Is there any way around this? Can the wrap text feature work
automatically somehow? Or will i need to double click in every cell
that contains text that doesn't fit into the cell.

Select your range, then CTRL+H.
In Find What, type 0010 (number keypad) while holding down ALT.
Click Replace All.
Try running this macro:
Cells.Replace Chr(10), ""
Cells.Replace Chr(13), ""
Afterward you may want to turn off Wrap Text (under Format, Cells,
Alignment) for the affected cells.
