Peter Nonley has a nice "dictionary" that defines all the 
worksheet functions with easy-to-follow examples. You can

AVERAGE formula with a twist
Hello - I need to average a range of cells B2:Y31. Normally, I'd use the formula =AVERAGE(B2:Y31)... easy enough. The twist is that I need to average that range of cells, BUT any cell that has a value less than 1 or more than 900 cannot be used in the calculation. These values are considered invalid for my purposes. All cell values are referencing a cell value in another worksheet that is part of the spreadsheet; for instance =bam!B2 How can I use a formula to automatically calculate the average of the range without calculating the invalid values? TIA! --- Phil =AVERAGE(IF((...

Format when viewing formulas
I'm trying to get two prints of the same document: one showing absolute numbers and the other showing the formulas. When I'm pressing ctrl+~ to show functions for my 2nd print, the format is changing. The cells are getting too wide, so I end up getting only the left half of the document in print preview.

Excel 2003 Slow Function Argument Window
I've just installed Excel 2003 at home. When I select a function in the Insert Function dialog, it takes FOREVER for the Function Arguments window to appear. The Arguments windows is animated to appear to pop up from under the formula bar. I can count the seconds watching the animation of the box appearing, and it's so annoying. In Excel 2000 I could have already completed entering the arguements by the time the window comes up. None of the other menus appear to be slow.

why does Equal sign not appear on the formula bar #2
next to the function button as it did in Excel 2000?? Why did they create this function wizard and make things more cumbersome?? Only the developers know why they did away with this in Excel 2002 and 2003. The return of this feature is on the wishlist for the next version. Adoption and Implementation of features on the wishlist is a whole 'nother matter.

Multiple "IF" functions one one cell returned from different cells
