Skip blank cells in diagrams
How do I exclude blank cells in diagrams. If I have an area of data and among
these data some is blank. How do I get excel to not display these data as '0'
but just to skip the cell.
You can include the function NA() in that field and the zero value for the
data won't be displayed.

I have a time management spreadsheet with data stored
against work type and date. I need to transfer this data
into a similar but more comprehensive spreadsheet and
wonder whether it is possible to automate this task by
using the work types and dates in a macro (I have almost
10 months of data to transfer), along the lines of check
date, check worktype, where argument is true enter data
from cell. I think I need to use visual basic, but I
can't find out how in the help screens.
Any advice is much appreciated.
This is not difficult providing you keep your data in simple tables...calculation of cells
Periodically I open a work book and the calculation option
has been changed to manual and I cannot figure out why. It
seems that it would have to be done by a user and most of
my spreadsheets are only used by me.
Any ideas out there
Calculation, auto or manual, is set by the first workbook that's opened. It
is that way for any other workbooks opened in that instance of excel. Look
for a workbook you might have opened first that's been set to Manual and
saved that way. Go figure.

I have a spreadsheet that lists "soccer players" by name
down the first colunm and "time in game" across the top
and the position they play in array.
I then use vlookup for another spreedsheet by "position"
down the first column, time across the top and puts the
players name into the positions. All this works fine.
Since there are 5 more kids than positions, the orginal
spreedsheet has blanks when the kids are out of the game.

All of them appear as hyperlinks i.e. blue and underlined but some
occasionally seem to lose their hyperlink properties. This means that when
one hovers over them, the cursor stays as the usual Excel cross rather than
changing to the hand/finger symbol. Also, clicking on the former does not

Is there any way to ensure they are formatted, and work, as hyperlinks

Cumbo, Use Conditional Formatting, but change cell valve is to formula is
and use something like this, will change the cell if A1=25
=$A$1=25, so if you select B5 and put this in conditional formatting cell B5
will change when A1 = 25
