Highlighting cells #2
Excel 2007 sp1 with vista 32 business sp1
Background: When you highlight multiple non-contigious cells (i.e. hold the
control key down and select several cells that are not connected) Excel
highlights the selected cells in light blue.
Problem: This light blue does not show at all on many projectors. In some
case you can adjust the color temp and this helps. We do hundreds of
presentation in North America each year and can not control what projection
equipment we will be using.
Requested solution: I would change the light blue background that is applied
to selected cells to some other colo...Store Operations crashes when viewing journal (F4) on register 2.
We have two registers, register 1 is the main machine where the database is

Run-time error '-2147417848 (80010108)':
The object invoked has disconnected from its clients.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to what the problem may be?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have a spreadsheet that calculates totals and has formulas in certain
columns. Is is possible to have the formulas work, but not have any
numbers in the cells before I input them? For example, in column D, I
have the simple formula =D9+E9, and so on and so forth down to
=D25+E25. I may only put itmes in until D11. So in D12 thru D25, I
have $0.00. Can I rewrite this formula, possible an IF/THEN statement
to add the two columns, but not show the $0.00 in D12 thru D25, since I
did not have to do any addition? My main goal is to not have this info
in D12 thru D25 print to make the sheet ...Rollup 2 and Office 2007

I've installed my Outlook 2002 on my new Vista PC (I had Xp before). Now when

Is there a way to move a cell contents to another cell with a formula. ex:

I have the formula in different place pick random names from different list.
This does work, but I have different list with some of the same names and
with the random pick I do not want the same name to appear.
Thanks for any and all help.

I have a chart which should get a title. However, this should be partly be
used from a cell e.g.
"counted with 5%"
5% should be taken from the cell and used in the title.
Is this possible?
Yes it's possible but all of the chart title needs to be in the cell. So you
may need to use a helper cell and concatenate text and value.

I have a chart that has blank info in the legend. I want

To add information to the legend, you need to add to a series name.
Right click on the chart, select Source Data from the pop up menu, click
on the series tab, select a series, and either type something in the
name box, or click in it and select a cell with the mouse.

into one cell will keep the upper-most data only." I need to make the cells
