Using variable names for cells
I seem to remember a technique where I could assign a variable name to
the contents of a cell so that whenever I wanted to use the contents,
all I had to do was call up the variable name. Unfortunately I cannot
find the way to set up the process. Any suggestsions or ideas would be
appreciated. Thanks and a Happy New Year.

I am trying to write an average formula that takes into account the blank
I had only cells A2, A4, A6 filled out, but when I do =average(A1:A6), it is
not treating the blanks as zeros so the answer is much higher than it should
Should I do a logic formula within the cells?
If you know the range, you could do the division yourself:
But this would include other non-numeric cells in the count of cells (6), too.

i have a formula i use in a spreadsheet...
I use it to caculate ages where the current date is in cell O1 and the
Person's birthday is shown in cell E3.
It doesn't add up right because if the birthday is later in the year
than the current day (shown in cell O1. ) It works fine if the
birthday is. If the birthday has already happened this year, then the
formula works fine.
How shoud i adjust it? thanks.
instead of adjusting, how about using

...Summing cells in pivot tables
I have a problem summing cells in a pivot table. When I double-click on a
cell that I want to add, the formula from that cell gets added. Eventually I
run out of characters. Is there a way to switch how the cell gets picked up.
I can manually enter the cell addresses that I am trying to sum but that
takes forever. Thanks,

I have a long list of formulas in column "E".
I need to know at a glance whether any value in this column is inequal to
zero without having to page down all the way through thousands of rows.
Summing the column is no good because there could be offsetting values (e.g.
+5 + -5 = 0).
I would like a formula I could place in one cell that would indicate if
every formula in the column evaluates to zero or not (rounded to 2 decimals).
Can anyone help?

I have linked a cell from another sheet. If the original cell is blank, 0
shows in the linked cell (text would be typed in source cell).
To handle this, I conditionally formatted the linked cell, so if it equals
zero, the font colour is the same as the background colour of the cell so you
can't see the zero
But the zero still prints even though it is not showing prior to printing

directly related to my territory. Thanks in advance for your help.

You can use Ctrl and ` (which is to the right of number 1 on your heyboard)
or you can use Tools / Options / View / Formulas (if my memory serves me

A cell can contain about 32000 characters, but Excel will display only
about a 1000 of them (depending on font and fontsize).

I have a workbook with a date on worksheet 1 that indicates data has
been entered for that month.
On worksheet 2 is are columns of numbers with an average for each
column at the bottom. I would like the average to use the date on
worksheet 1 to calculate the average.
The start of the range is known, but the end of the range is found only
by looking up the date on worksheet 1.
I have tried to use something like: =AVERAGE(B10:ADDRESS(VLOOKUP(date,
range, 1, TRUE). This doesn't work and I can't find the functions
needed to make it successful.
Thanks in advance for any help!
