Macro on cell content
this must be a common problem, and I thought I found the solution, but
it doesn't work ... I'm probably missing something very simple.
I want to execute a simple VB function in one cell, taking another cell
as Parameter. Both, parameter cell and function result are strings. For
A1: "this is content of cell A1"
and Convert is a VB function
Function Convert(content As string) as String
' do something depending on content
Convert = "result-string"
However, I always get a #NAME? Error in cell A2.
The ide...Make merged cells in clipboard paste as unmerged?
If a user copy merged cells from another sheet, I dont' want to allow it to
paste as that, but just paste as a textstring in the selected cell.
Anybody having a sub macro to share?

I know how to select a range of cells by specifying reference in nam
A10:A20 (The range of cells in column A and rows 10 through 20)
5:5 (All cells in row 5)
However, I am attempting to select every third cell going down colum
A, beginning with A3. I can enter
A3, A6, A9 (This will select just those cells.)
Is there a shortcut I can use to continue this pattern of every thir

...charting a single changing DDE cell
I have a spreadsheet that captures real time stock data via a DDE link. The
cell captures the last price of a stock as it changes over time. Can you
chart that changing cell as the day progresses. Maybe capture the data and
then chart it or a macro which plots that cell every minute?
You would need to capture the value of that changing cell periodically
in a growing table, possibly in a different sheet.
For example, every time you update it via the DDE, you could run a code
that copies the value of the cell to the last row of the table.
Use a dynamic chart to plot the values in t...display last value in a column

You need to create a summary region on a worksheet, and use this as the

Obviously there is some setting in the individual cells that governs how it displays as well as the general setting.
