Creating a new field based on conditions
I have a database that tracks insurance information for our various vendors.
Each insurance type has 2 fields - a requirement field (yes/no), and an
effective field (some show an expiration date, some are yes/no). I have
created a query that will return only the records for which insurance is
required but is expired/missing. My problem is that I want to create a new
field that is calculated based on the values in the other two fields in order
to make the resulting report more user-friendly.
For example, if GLRequired is True and GLExpiration is <Now(), I want the
new field to say...Hyperlink via indirect cell reference
I have workbook that contains a number of sheets. On a separate sheet I
would like to be able to insert a hyperlink so that I can jump to a specific
However, rather than inserting all of the hyperlinks manually (I will have
to replicate this over many workbooks) I wondered if there was a formula to
allow me to jump to a cell (say A1) in another worksheet, based on the name
of that worksheet being entered in a cell reference.
For example - a number of worksheets called "Sheet1", "Sheet2", "Sheet3",

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

You can't. The closest you will get is to hide column headings, via Excel

Not possible I'm afraid. Try placing the dat from both cells into one

Merge cells always end up causing grief. they are best avoided.

I am trying to get a feel for some probabilistic properties. For
example, I am trying to look at the statistics of the intervals between
randomly occurring pulses. I have no problem getting a column of
uniformly distributed pulse times, but they are unsorted, Every time I
recalculate with cmd-=, I get a new unsorted set of pulse times because
of the use of the RAND function.
Is there a way of taking this unsorted column and pasting it into
another colun that would be sorted without invoking a macro?
To simplify and be more specific consider the following.
