This may help a little.  If the monitor's brightness is set too low, and the
contrast set too high to compensate, dark colors like blue will turn darker.
Try reversing that.  A problem is that the controls may eventually work
their way back to the earlier "beer-hall TV settings."  (:

One good way to properly set the controls is to turn the contrast down a bit
low, raise the brightness until a grey background starts to appear, then
back it up up a tinch until it almost  or JUST disappears, and leave it
there.  Now adjust the contrast as desired.

Algrebraic Functions
How would you solve a function with input 1 output 8. Then input 2 output 14. next input 3 output is blank then input is blank Output is 24. the input is blank and the out put is 28. Finally, the input is 6 and the output is blank. It occurred to me that if you assume the input blanks are 4 and 5, then you could use the Add Trendline option within Excel charts to show you what the potential functions could be. Try plotting x: 1, 2, (blank cell), 4, 5 against y: 8, 14, (blank cell), 24, 28 Use an x-y scatter chart and, when plotted, right click on a data point an...

How do I add a hyperlink to an individual word in an Excel cell?
I am using Excel 2000 (not by choice) and I need to add a hyperlink to an individual word within the cell, not the whole cell itself. For example in the sentence "Click here or here to go to the appropriate web page." I want the words "here" to each have a separate hyperlink. Any ideas? I can manage some VBA too if necessary. Thanks, Rosalie Hi Rosalie, You can't do that in Excel. You would have to use HTML or Word or some other means. You could fake it, the entire cell would be a link, but you could after assigning the hyperlink select another...

Fill cells with interpolated values
Hi What is the easiest way to fill cells with linear interpolated values ? e.g. i have value 5 in cell A1, and value 15 in cell A6. Cells A2 ... A5 should now be filles with 7, 9, 11, 13. of course, it's not a big deal to write a formula for interpolation, but maybe there is more simple way, (just by some mouse clicks....?) Biff Select the range A1:A6 with your start and stop value in their respective cells, and then do Edit / Fill / Series / Trend / Linear -- Regards Ken.......................

Possible to have a block of cells not affected by sorts or cursor movements, etc.
I don't know what to call what I'm trying to do so will try to briefly explain. All these years, I've placed 1 static results cells in the header row so that freeze panes would always show them. So, the descriptive cell and "total" dollar or figure amounts for the sheet would be located in 2 cells in this frozen header. Needless to say, this is not ideal. It works because I'm forced to keep stats down to just showing a global total so only 2 cells affected. I lose so much valuable sheet real estate as it is for the one totals formula since the rows below these 2 ...
