As Frank said, that's the maximum cols
But maybe you could try transposing your table / data ?
(Excel has a lot more rows than columns)
If so, try: http://tinyurl.com/2nmyy

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...Goal Seek #2
Can anyone tell me a little about goal seek?
basically it's used to change an input variable so that the result of the
formula equals what you want it to ...
say i have the following
A B C
1 10 20 =A1+B1
now C1 will give me 30, but if i want to know what B1 will need to be if i
want C1 to show 50, i can use goal seek
Set C1 to value of 50 by changing B1
Hope this helps

I have set my current workbook to split/freeze the first column and first 2
rows. Now, when I add a comment to the second row (in any column) my comments

I don't ever remember the behavior before. And I don't know what I've done
to enable it but it's really annoying.
How do turn this off ?

I use CorelDraw, it is simply a matter of moving the pivot point to the corner.

The 11.5.5 autoupdate worked fine.
The 12.1.9 autoupdate downloads (apparently), but then it goes right
back to showing that the 12.1.9 update is available -- the updater
itself never actually launches.
Busy servers, maybe -- and the download isn't ever actually completing?
Or bad updater on the update server for 12.1.9?
The manual download from Mactopia of 12.1.9 installed properly -- this
is just the auto-update that's not working now.
You're right, the auto-update fail. It should be pulled or a message sent instructing to update by downloading directly...Contact oddity and why are there 2 Contact Lists?
Running Win 7, and was receiving emails in WLM with my maiden name listed in

last name to all caps. Sure enuf the next email I rec'd showed that name.
I then deleted the email address connected to my name in the contact list
and everything is back to "normal" (whatever that is <G>)
Why in the world are there 2 contact lists on my computer......one thru WLM
and one thru Windows Contacts?
