Name the...Excel 2003 extract repeating cells
I have successfully sorted my data to show repeating entries in
relation to two specific columns. I can't seem to figure out how to
select these repeating entries (without doing it manually, of course)
and putting them either into their own column(s) or an entirely
different spreadsheet altogether.
The goal is to save time in managing THOUSANDS of documents in this
manner so that my colleagues can easily pick up repeating entries and
take according action. Doing it manually is very time-inefficient.

I have two cells that I want to combine to have a working formula
B1 = sum
B2 = d3
b3 = =b1&"("&b2&")"
D3 = 10
The result in b3 is : sum(d3)
How do I get this to result in the actual value in D3.
I know I can simply write =D3, but the actual reason for combining the two cells is more complicated than explained here.
I think you are perhaps looking for the Indirect function
would return the value contained in D3
As you copy down, the formula would alter to 4, 5 etc. represent D4, D5 etc.

...cell looses name after sorting
Can someone help me with the following problem in Excel 2000:
in a table I have attached serveral cells with unique cell names, the
values in these cells are used in other sheets.
the problem is that when I sort the table, the cell names stay in the
original rowposition; they are not sorted! while their values are. So
Cell names get different values, and other calculations on my other
sheets get messed up!
How can I make the cell names relative instead of absolute?
thankx in advance,

manually resizing the height of the row?

This is a new one for me. Afer opening up Excel '98 and go to a cell, every
cell is highlighted when I move the mouse. I can not put any information in
any cell. The only way to quit Excel is control, alt, delete and then it
gives me "can not quit excel". It does though after a while. Wherever I
move the mouse, the cells are highlighted. What gives?

To refer to a cell with a variable row number, we can just code it as,
Dim i As Interger
Range("A" & i).Select
To refer to a cell with a variable column index, it seems not that easy
because the column
index must be explicitly specified in a cell address. So, if I want to
go to the j th column on the 2nd row or j columns to the right of cell
AA3, is there a quick and easy way to do it? Thank you in advance.
You may be able to use R1C1 terminology, but you'll need to get someone else
to help from here.

Nope. I'm afraid that's only possible using Outlook.
In WLM you have to use the built in editor. Is there anything in particular
that's lacking from the built in editor that you're looking for?

...Locking cell color while allowing data changes in cell
In excel 2000, I created an attendance worksheet for my
classes.(Alphabetized names down left vertical column. Dates across
top of horizontal row.) I added a different color to all cells in
every other row to make for easier reading of each student's name and
absences. Every other row stays with a white background.
My question: I wondered if it was possible to lock row colors while
allowing data to change on top of them. If a new student is added to
my class in alphabetical order, the alternating color pattern is often
lost. It is a pain to rechange row and cell colors.

Could someone remind me how to handle CSV files please? I had assumed
