...conditional formatting sort
Is there a way to sort after conditional formatting. So, if I've set up a
conditional format to color my text red if the number is between 0 and 95,
then I want to sort so all red numbers are at the top of the spreadsheet?
Thanks for your time and assistance.

You can't sort by color, but you can add a column to your query like
SortColumn: Iif(SomeValue >= 0 and SomeValue <= 95, 1, 2)
Then sort by this column.

I have set my current workbook to split/freeze the first column and first 2

are cut off if I should scroll down.
I don't ever remember the behavior before. And I don't know what I've done
to enable it but it's really annoying.

I was considering learning Excel as an additional tool for my data analysis
Is it better to use data sets that I have previously used with SPSS and

tools, I was considering using excel's online help.
The second option I have is to use some excel book for data analysis and
apply the techniques to data sets provided with the book.

The help states you can only add error bars to data series in 2D area. Is
there a way to add them to a 3D chart?
I would not have thought so. Obviously as it is not a built-in option
the only way would be a work around perhaps using dummy series.
Unfortunately you can create 3d combination charts.
Stick with the 2d view.

I have posted a cemetery survey on Excell spreadsheet. When I try to sort
the birth dates or death dates in ascending or descending order the range of
1900 dates will sort but the 1800 dates fall after the 1900 and will not
sort. Why? Is this inherit with this program?
The WinXL default dates start with 31 December 1899, so earlier "dates"
are interpreted as Text.
You can use helper columns and text functions (LEFT(),RIGHT(),MID()) to
put the Year, Month and Day in separate columns, then sort.
