Get drive letter for old slave hard drive while keeping data
My master hard disk has failed and I have successfully replaced it with a
new one and reinstalled windows XP etc. Before the crash I had a second slave
drive with some data I would like to keep on it. When I connect this drive,
it shows up in disk management, but does not get assigned a drive letter. How
can I get windows to assign a drive letter to the drive without formatting it
and losing all of my data?
Both drives are IDE drives, the master is jumpered to cable select and is on
the master cable, the slave seems to have lost its jumper, or never had one,
but sh...Excel, how do I change the column headings from letters to number

There, uncheck the R1C1 reference style setting.

I am using a loop function that will eventually select and activate a
specific cell known as "TheCurrentCell." Once I reach that location I want
to use that coordinate as the upper left area of a new range. Supposing that
the end cell of my range is D1000, the Range selection would be something
like Range(TheCurrentCell:D1000).select, however, I don't know the correct
syntax to make this happen.
Please help. Thank you.
Use something like Range(Selection.Address & ":D1000").Select.

I am trying to find a simple way of moving data in horizontal columns
(referencing the key in column 1) to vertical colums (still referenceing the
same key). This would mean automatically repeating the values in column one
for every entry in the moved columns.
I can do this through the pivot table, but this is a long drawn out process.
I'm not sure if this will work for you, but you can try this:
- Highlight & copy on the horizontal value you want to make vertical
- Now highlight the vertical area you want these value to got

I've got the following in a dataset:

and I want the following result:
19 30 1200, 1324 FI FI 20030906 26
Any guess on how to do this?
Not quite clear:
The data is arranged in columns, I assume
It looks as if both items in the same column are the same, you want just one
item, otherwise the one in the top row first, then the one from the bottom row.
But what about the last 36s that should yield 26? Typo?
Does the dataset have more columns or more rows or both? And how big is it?...moving payables data from open to history

Not possible I'm afraid. Try placing the dat from both cells into one
and use "Center across selection" under Format>Cells>Alignment
Merge cells always end up causing grief. they are best avoided.

I am plotting in regularly basis a certain set of data in excel.
Based on some data analysis this set of data has to be fitted to these

from data analysis, constants a, b and c are found and are placed lets say
in cells A1, B1, C1.
