Need invisible/shaded/highlighted cell
I'm thinking what I would like to do can *probably* be done in VBA, but I'd like
to use the formula in the cell. If it can be done.
I have three columns:

I using Excel 2003 to create a "Lookup" formula to calculate grade points and
grade point averages. I want to insert the grade and have the grade
converted to a grade point then multiply by the number of credits for the
class. I created a vector with the grade and a corresponding vector with the
grade point. The formula I am using is =LOOKUP(D6, B1:N1, B2:N2) where D6 is
the lookup value (the grade); b1:n1 is the lookup vector; and b2:n2 is the
result vector. The result is that I get an "#N/A" error message when I input
some grades, I get the incorrect gra...linking cells #3
I have a calendar created in Excel - each sheet is a new
month that contains the following information: the last
week of the previous month, the current month, and the
first week of the next month. I would like to link the
cells from the "overlapping" weeks, but I do not want
the "0" to show up in the cells. Is there any way to
prevent this? Thanks in advance!
Either choose not to show zero values through Tools>Options>View or trap the
zero and turn to a blank-looking character.

It's called VLOOKUP.
Hi. I'm doing a tricky poor-man's-Illustrator project with Excel
2007. I'm trying to create the impression of a large cell that's been
split in half diagonally (with a diagonal ascending from bottom left
to top right). I've created a 2 x 2 grid of cells and put a diagonal
border through the lower left and top right cells and removed the
vertical, internal borders. Looks great so far. In addition, I'd
like to place text in the upper left and lower right cells. Ideally,
this text would be wider than the upper left or lower right cell and
would flow over into the adja...insert symbols in text cell

If you have wraptext turned on (format|cells|alignment tab), then the cell will
expand its rowheight to show you all the data. (unless you use merged cells or
have adjusted the rowheight manually).
If you have wraptext turned off, then the text will overflow to the cell to ...Formula that returns the sheetname

I have a spreadsheet which has a weight column. This is exported as
25kg, 1000kg, 10x2kg from another program.
I am trying to use this weight column in a calculation. I have
inserted a new column and copied the information over and then used the
find/replace to remove the KG to use in the calc cell. This works fine
for the 25 / 1000 etc, but the 10x2 will not caculate.
Is there a way that when i paste the cells that i can get it to change
to 20 automatically. ( i presume that the x will need to be a * ?)

I have a spreadsheet with value in one column & a series of dates in 5
other columns.For each row depending on the value
in the first colunm a date may be applicable in one or more of the
other columns.e.g 550 in the first column will mean dates will be

I need help understanding which formula I should use. . . I have built a

sheet, I need to be able to input ONLY two variables (state and fruit) and
return information (the cost) defined in the table below.
As an example: Inputting the variables of Texas and Bananas should return
$4.00. I need to be able to change Texas to Florida and the formula should
immediately update to the value to $6.00.

I have a client who uses Excel files that link out to other excel
files. The formulas in the "main" file calculate from data in the
linked files. So, the formula is in the main file. When they close the
main file and re-open it, the formulas are gone, but the last
calculated value remains.
Does anyone have an idea why this would happen?
One way might be because a "Before Save" or "Before Close" Macro is doing

I have an array formula which finds a negative average correctly but not a

For example I have a small column containing positive and negative numbers

I have manually filled the first 13 cells in the column with numbers and
have no gaps.
For the last 7 cells I have put in a simple formula to copy a value from
another cell if that cell has a value, otherwise to leave the cell blank.
Accordingly the last 7 cells are empty.
Now I would like to find the average of the last 2 negative numbers in the

...Going to certain cell address
Maybe I was not clear in my previouse posting dated 17/1/07 @ 10:45PM.
What I ment is:
if C1=1 need to go to cell address a8
if c1=2 need to go to cell address a68
and so on
In other words:
If i entered the value of 2 in cell c1 and press enter key I want to go to
the cell addresss A68
Hope that I made myself more clear.
A small macro would do the trick. Adapt as needed and put it into the code
