#### #REF #3

```Hi,

I'm doing a projection spreadsheet. The new months in diff sheets will be
added as and when the actual month passes, ie, up to now i have sheets up to
Aug. But in the MAIN sheet, I'm supposed to have months for the whole year up
to Dec. Since Sep to Dec don't have equivalent sheets yet, the cells show
#Ref since my formula is =Oct!A1.

I want to tell the cell to get the amount from "Oct" sheet if there's such a
sheet and if not, get the amount from "Sep" sheet. I tried this
"=if(Oct!A1="#REF", Sep!A1,Oct!A1)" but it doesn't work. What can I do?

Thanks!
Val
```

```I think I've worked it out by using ISNUMBER function. But now i have a
problem...when I later add in a "Oct" worksheet, I must go to the cells in
the MAIN worksheet to manually go into the cell and go out to refresh the
cell. Is there an automatic way to refresh the cells when i add in the new
worksheet?

```Use the ISERROR function:
=IF(ISERROR(Oct!A1),"",Oct!A1)

```One way:

=IF(NOT(ISERROR(INDIRECT("'oct'!A1"))),INDIRECT("'oct'!a1"),Sep!A1)

No Reports in CRM 3.0 Install
Hi everyone, I have been working on installing CRM 3.0 (fresh install) on a Small Business Server and I have been having trouble getting the reporting services to work correctly. I have been able to get the reports section to pull up now but no reports are listed in the grid. All the other functions appear to be working and I can even start to add reports but it puzzles me. Doesn't Microsoft provide sample reports to begin with? Has anyone else had this issue and if so, how do I get the reports to show up? Surely they gave us standard reports with the program?!?!?!

Row Height #3
I'm working on this spreadsheet and we are constantly adding more information to these cells in a certain column. After a while when there is a lot of text added into the cell, it begins to not continue wordwrap-ing it anymore, and cuts it off, as well as when choosing AutoFit for cell height, it won't go any bigger than 171.00. Is there anyway to change those settings? If you add alt-enters to force a new line within the cell, then you'll be able to see more text in that cell and the wordwrap should come back.
