negative time values?
F103=SUM(F94)-(F102) could someone tell me how to format this cell to get the correct answer, current format is [h].mm;#;[Red]-[h].mm; and its giving me a value of 1 and it should be -18:22 F94=218:18 F102=236:40 Thank you, Steve Try using this format: [h].mm;[Red]-[h].mm;#; by default, the second field is for negative numbers, the third for zero.

How do I create a combo box that is tied to another combo box?
I am trying to create a combo box that is associated with yet another combo box. So, for example, I have a combo list currently, but I'd like another list (a sub-list) to pop up with each input in the combo list. Is this possible? Could you live with Data Validation dropdown lists instead of combocbox?

AutoFilter list of values
When I activate the auto filter, a drop down lists the unique values within the column. How could I get this list of unique values? Hi RJH, As far as I know this can only be done with advanced filter. Select Data-Filter-Advanced Filter and check the Unique records only box. Cheers, JF. Another way to extract the list of unique values Suppose the data is in col A, A1 down Put in C1: =IF(COUNTIF($A$1:A1,A1)>1,"",ROW()) Put in B1: =IF(ISERROR(SMALL(C:C,ROWS($A$1:A1))),"",INDEX(A:A,MATCH(SMALL(C:C,ROWS($A$1 :A1)),C:C,0))) Select B1:C1 and copy down till the last ro...

Display percent and value on stacked column chart
I'm displaying cumulative $ totals from 3 sales groups on a 100% stacked column chart. We've recently exceeded 100% of our total $ goal so the chart isn't able to display the amount above 100%. If I switch to a standard stacked column chart, I can't choose the display percentage option. I downloaded the Rob Bovey's Chart Labeler but I can't get it to display what I want. Perfect world would be displying the dollar value of each sales group in the column segments and showing percent of total goal on the y-axis. I would even be okay with showing the dollar valu...

Adding Value to Cell Reference
The following formula is in Cell A1 =AVERAGE(Sheet1!F14:F20) When I COPY this formula to Cell A2, I would like to be able to add a value to specify which row in Sheet1 I want the formula to refer to. For example, if I copy the formula to the next cell, I'd like to be able to use a variable, say B1 (where B1 =3) to make the copied formula look like this (adding B1 value to F14 and F20 references to get): =AVERAGE(Sheet1!F17:F23) Can someone explain how? Why don't you just use the actual row number? B1 = 17 =AVERAGE(INDEX(Sheet1!F:F,B1):INDEX(Sheet1!F:F,B1+6)) Which translates to:...
