Strange Excel Problem.....
We are facing one very strange excel problem in our organization.We have
purchased new IBM thinkcenter 851 desktops for our Managers.We have installed
Windows 2000 professional as operating system and Office 97 as office in that
pcs.Now we are facing one very strange problem....Normally when you click on
"New" shortcut( I mean right click anywhere and select "new" option),you will
find "Microsoft Excel Worksheet" as shortcut listed in that option and when
you select it new excel worksheet will be opened.But here,whenever i click on
"new"...Excel remembers! How?
I type in "FRENCH"(no quatos) in cell A1
The I type in ENGLISH in cell b1
When I get back to cell a2 and type in the letter F the etxt is completed
and it says FRENCH
How does this happen/what is it called/how do you turn it OFF
Thanks for the help
It is called "AutoCompletion". To turn it off, go to the Tools
menu, choose Options, then the Edit tab. There, uncheck the
"Enable AutoComplete for cell values" options.

Does anyone know how to take an Excel workbook that has
multiple worksheets and create a footer (say one that
lists the page number, the tab name, and the file name),

have to set the footer for some 10 to 20 worksheets when
they're practically identical?

array 2 is the median and array 3 is the top quartile. If you picture
the entire graph, these three arrays break up the chart into four

aren't in the custom, standard or theme palettes. The markers are coming out

I don't know if this is possible, but I figured I would ask:
I have a spreadsheet that I work with that shows the schedules of my
students; each different place my student goes has its own row, so a student
may have many rows if they have many activities. currently, i auto filter the
day column to the current day so i can see what students have activities on
that day, and when/where they are. i was wondering if i could set an alarm on
the column labeled 'start time' that would pop a window up when any value in
that cell matched the system time... is this possible?? thanks,

In Excel 2007, every time I change ranges, and even sometimes when I move
away from a range and then come back to an old range, I have to re-enter the
sort parameters every time.
In Excel 2003, and for some versions before, if I sorted a selected range
(say A4:Q54) by Col A Asc, Col G Asc, and Col C Desc then Excel would remember
the sort parameters so that if I changed ranges to say A60:Q100 it would
keep those same parameters loaded and I could just simply sort my data
without having to re-enter the sort parameters all over again.

Do you really mean that your workbook uses a function that's in the addin?
If yes, I think you have two choices.
#1. Take the addin with you (and install it on the other pc).
#2. Extract the code/procedure for that function from the addin and put it in

I am trying to select charts that will lend themselves well to communicating

Sounds like you need some sort of Gannt chart.

Forget about the built-in custom types. Make a column chart. Then select a
series you want to change to a line, choose Chart Type from the Chart menu,
and choose a line style. Select another you want to change and press the F4
function key, and repeat as required.
