I have a row of cells that calculate the totals for their columns but I
force to be blank via IF statements until certain conditions are met.
Once these conditions are met, the total appears. I'd like to also
highlight these total cells via conditional formatting. My conditional
formatting input is simply "If Cell is Greater than 0, format". For
some reason all the cells format as though they are all > 0 yet they
don't display anything. Are there some internal rules that specifiy
when a cell is really 0? Is there another way to do this that won't

...Hotkeys for text & background coloring
Does anyone know the hotkeys for text coloring (font color) & background
coloring (fill color)?
First you need to select the font color & fill color in the related toolbar
- When I highlight "I am great", then press "Ctrl+O" for example, the text will
be colored as what it's displayed in the "font color" toolbr icon.
- The simliar way applies to background coloring
If the above is not available, any workaround is still apreciated.

If you have removed your finger from the shift key then Windows will think
you are starting a new selection. Just be sure that you don't touch the
arrows without the shift being held down.

I need to show my date as 06-Dec-2005 in a text cell. Is it possible to have

If you format the cell as Text, then you'll have to type in what you
want--exactly the way you want to see it.
If you don't format it as text, you could type the date in anyway that's a date,
then use a custom format of:
(format|cells|number tab|custom category)
