Tracking Dates For Future Occurrences
Can this be done? I want to track a yearly review. I would like the date,
once entered - say 6/1/2009, to conditionally format to change yellow 30 days
before, then red 15 days before, and then to stay red until the date is
updated again for say 6/1/2010. Can this be done? I am new to all this,

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 having trouble parsing the date and time in a field. I download
data from a data base and the date and time come together in one
field. I want to seperate the two. The date and time comes across as
the following: "2/1/2009 14:37" in the cell. When I parse it, it
seperates into three columns as follows: "2/1/2009", 2:37 AM", and
"PM" I can see what is going on but I would like to get two columns
with one as the date and the other as the correct time. are they any
ideas on how to address this?
Try using the TimeValue and DateValue functions.

I know Excel provides shortcuts for entering the date (CTRL + ;) and the =

formatting for same-cell date and time, it seems kind of odd that there =
a shortcut to facilitate entry.) Is it possible to create an entirely =

I have a 4 page sheet. I have a header already. But I want to freeze the
cells that head up the first page. I've done it before in school but can't
remember what it is called or how to do it...that's why I'm doing this.
Anyway, I want these cells to print off on each new page without having to
type them on each page. I hope that makes sense and I hope that someone can
If you mean for printing do file>page setup>sheet and select rows to repeat

How can I rename column A to read "bills" instead of the letter A?
You can't. The closest you will get is to hide column headings, via Excel

How can I merge 2 cells without losing data from the other cell?
Not possible I'm afraid. Try placing the dat from both cells into one
and use "Center across selection" under Format>Cells>Alignment
Merge cells always end up causing grief. they are best avoided.

I'm using O2003. For a contact, there is the Due by Field. There is
also a Reminder Time field. If you update the Due By field, it updates
the Reminder Time field. However, if you update the Reminder Time
field, it does not update the Due By field. By default for a contact,
you have access to the Due By field. The Reminder field is avaialble,
but you have to manually add it.
In Tasks, it seems to work the same in that if you update the Due By
