Linking cells containing text from one worksheet to a cell with text in another worksheet
I have a workbook with two pages, the first page has cells that
contain the main description heading of the cells on the second page.
The second page has the heading in one cell and then the breakdown of
each section under that, and repeated as there are about 11 sections.
When I paste a link or use a hyperlink on the first page, it does take
you to the heading cell on the second page, however I was wondering if
there is a way to force the cells on the bottom of the page to the top
for easier viewing. Right now it just pulls those cells up enough to
see them at the bottom of the screen, and ...Formula to lookup in a range, find duplicates, and then total the data in the applicable duplicate cells in another column
Need to know if the following is possible?
I have a worksheet with several columns. One of those columns has some
duplicate entries. What I need a formula to do is locate all the
duplicates in this column. Then, based upon the values found in the
cells (currency) of a different column in those duplicate rows, total
the dollar amounts of these other cells. I don't know if it would be
possible to insert a blank row to show the total dollar value of the
dups, or perhaps "paste" (for lack of a better term) the resulting
dollar total into one of the duped cells.

Thanks a lot.
I wouldn't use macros.
You can copy in the usual way, but when you paste, all the cells will
be brought together, so you can't paste data in non-contiguous cells.

Hi guys, is there a way to convert the following
123456789 to 123-456-789
abcdefghi to abc-def-ghi
I need to convert a long list of serial numbers so I can look for them, but
doing it one by one will take me an eternity.
you can get the numbers but the text, a solution is to use text to columns
and then insert columns everyt three other

Yes. Format - Cells - Number. In Category, choose Number or Currency, and
you'll have a box to choose the display format of negative numbers. For

I currently have our church bulletin in Publisher 2000. It is run on
8.5 x 11 with 4 pages and book fold, so there are two pages on each side of
the paper (using duplex printing with lazer printer). I want to keep this
exact format, but I want to switch to 8.5 x 14, and use the extra three
inches for 2 separate pages (one front and one back). So, in essence,
everything would stay the same except for the new few inches that are
gained. The document is setup to print in landscape form with book fold.
The pages are obviously 8.5 inches tall, and 5.5 inches wide. I can change
