In excel when inputting dates 10/4/04 (10/april/04) data converts.
In excel when inputting dates 10/4/04 (10/April/2004) excel converts this to
4/10/04 (4/October/2004) Where can I change the input characteristics.
I have changed the date format to English (UK) and this works when I input
the date in the American format mm/dd/yy but I want to input in the dd/mm/yy
I think I'd try chaning my windows regional settings.
In win98, I'd get to it via:

I have two questions:
1. I notice (occassionally) when I am using Vlookup/Hlookup to import data
to another worksheet that the rules to not immediatley reflect the correct
data. However, if I click on each data cell, and validate the formula (by
clicking on the 'tick') it immediatley returns the correct data. Is there
anyway of doing a bulk refresh that will somehow re-activate the rules that
appear to have become dormant?
2. Is there a formula that will find the largest numeric data entry in a
row, column, array?

...Validation Confusion-Excel 2003
On a timesheet I need to ensure that when I enter in the times of a the DAY
shift that it is on or after 6:00 am. The finish time is not important as
the start time dictates the shift. For example, someone may start at 7:30
and work thro to 3:30 (or 15:50), this equals a day shift. I may have
someone else who starts at 6:00 am and finishes at 10:00 am, this also equals
a day shift.
I also need an AFTERNOON shift that starts at 12:00 (Noon). I believe if I
have the answer to the day, this will come easy to me (that is if the Noon
time doesn't become a hinderance??)

If I type -10^6 in a cell, the resulting number is 1,000,000. However,
shouldn't the exponent take precedence over the sign? Specifically,
shouldn't the result be -1,000,000?
Search for "Precedence" in excel's Help. (I used xl2003.)
And you'll find out how excel treats arithmetic operators.
It's not what you learned in school.
But those are excel's rules. So you have to play by them if you stay in excel.
Personally, I'll add ()'s to make sure the expression evaluates like I want.

Let's try for the easy solution first... Are people entering data on

Whenver I copy/paste tables from word to excel, I get merged cells in
Excel whenever there are line breaks in the word table cells. How can
I avoid this?
Saved from a previous post:
If your cells in your word table contain paragraph mark or linebreak characters,
then excel will bring them over as separate cells.
One way around it is to convert those paragraph marks & linebreaks to unique
characters, then copy|paste and then convert them back to linefeeds.
I like this technique (inside a copy of the word file):
Select your table.
