Column Reference to External Source As a Variable
Can anyone help me convert the column referenced in the formula below into a variable that the user can define?
More specifically, I have several columns that I need to read from an external workbook (Short_Billy.xls). Each column to the right of column C represents an additional day out in a 14 day projection from today (whose data is held in column C).
In cell I5 of my active workbook (Inventory.xls), I would like the user to be able to enter a value representing the number of days out they would like to see the projection for (0=today=Column C, 1=Tomorrow=Column D, etc.). In cell I6, I...Column Headings #11
Can you add seperate column headings (A, B, C, ...) into one spreadsheet?
I'm attempting to alter the column sizes half-way through the spreadsheet
w/out affecting the upper column sizes...
Coolumn width belongs to the entire column and cannot be altered in separate
sections of that column.

Once I use the Text to columns feature in Excel, it seems there is no way to
turn it off.
Anyone know if there is a way to reset this so that newly pasted text will
not continue to get broken up (for example by the space delimiter)
Presently the only way is to exit Excel and restart Excel - then pasted text
all goes into one cell regardless of spaces.
Hope I explained that well enough

"underneath" the asset price on the chart. They would share the same X
I have added another series, but this simply displays the volume traded
as another line, and even when this is set to a secondary axis the

I've noticed in Excel 2000 that if I paste text into various worksheets

Just run another data|Text to columns against a dummy cell.
Specify delimited, but remove all the check marks from all the possible
(alternatively, you can close excel and reopen it.)

I have an issue with some .doc files when opening in Word 2007. In some
cases the word count in the status bar is different of the word count of the
"Word Count"- window (CTRL+SHIFT+G) or the word count in Word 2003
Example file: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=79595
Word 2007 (status bar) show 61019 words
Word 2007 (Word count window) show 61010 words

I have a calculation in cell A3 which looks at the content of Cell A1 and
Cell A2 and then works out the difference between both as a percentage
Cell A1 = 100
Cell A2 = 10
Cell A3 returns the difference as being 90%
My simple calculation in Cell A3 is as follows =(A1-A2)/A1
Cell A3 is formatted to give the answer as a percentage to 2 decimal places
The above works fine as long as the number in Cell A1 is greater than the
number in Cell A2
If the number in A2 is greater than the number in A1 then my calculated
answer is incorrect
Cell A1 = 10...Excel 2003 Copy/Paste filtered column
I have a filtered column on my spreadsheet. I have copied the column,
changed the figures and then tried to paste it back on to the filtered
column. It is not copying over the original filtered column but rather over
cells that have been filtered out. The worksheet/cells are not protected.
What could the problem be?
That's the way pasting works. It'll hit the visible and hidden cells.

I have two rows - say Row 1 and Row 2.
In the first row I have a answer key.
In the second row I have answers from a student.
I would like to write a formula where it counts how many answers student got write.
Here is a example:
Row 0: Q1 Q2 Q3 Q4 Q5 Q6
Row 1: 1 4 2 3 4 1
Row 2: 3 4 1 3 4 1
So student marked 4 questions correctly: Q2, Q4, Q5 and Q6.
Hence, the formula should return 4.

...Moving certain data to different sheet
I need to move data that meets a certain criteria, to another sheet within a
workbook. For instance, if a column of data is for a certain ZIP code area, I
need it to automatically copy to a sheet for that city. Say, 40202 would go
to the Louisville, KY sheet. Because Louisville has multiple ZIPs, I would
need only the data that begins with 402 to go to that sheet. Lexington KY's
data, which begins with ZIP code 405, would go to its own sheet. Macro?
This can definitely not be created with a formula. I suggest that you make
use of the macros.
