Finding merged cells #2
Sorry for posting 2 messages with ref to the same problem but I am in dire
need of a solution...
I seem to have a problem due to cells in a worksheet being merged, how can i
identify these cells?
Excel version? If you have 2002 or 2003 you can use Edit, Find, Format (and
specify merged cells), Find All.

How can I change the source database for a pivot table in
an Excel spreadsheet. Our database server has been

...How do I generate random, non-repeating numbers that don't change?
I'm setting up a spreadsheet that tracks names and generates random,
non-repeating four-digit ID#'s. Is it possible in Excel 2000?
The usual way to generate non repeating random numbers is to make a
complete list of the possible numbers use =RAND() in and adjacent
column, then sort both columns by that auxiliary column and read of the
desired number of values from the first column.

Does anyone know how to format a cell so it will flash or blink ?
It's possible to do so with code but its a bad idea, you'll find such (bad)
code by searching Google.
There is no built in function like Word in Excel and if you do use such code
the results are usually jumpy and erratic, plus the processor is unavailable
to do anything else until the code is stopped from running, ie the machine
is virtually locked up,

point it to the new .pst file.

I'm trying to determine if there is a way to adjust the effective date that
is located on the transmit file for EFT file transmissions.
Our transmit files show the current date as the effective date for our
batches. We'd like to see a day or 2 later.
I believe the location of this "effective date" is between characters 70 and
75 on the 5 record (company/batch header for all entries).

I have too many array formulas, and calculating cells takes to long that even

What I did is, from "options", tab "calculate", changed from "calculate
automatic" to "manual calculations".
After that excel works fine if I calculate cell by cell, BUT I do need to

What I want to do is select a certain number of cells and then calculate
them manually, and since they are array formulas I have to use
Do you know how to do that?
