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.

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,

I'm looking to use Microsoft RMS for a medium sized game store with

If you are talking about multiple part numbers, yes, use the alias function.
Remember what a barcode is. Its a graphical representation of a partnumber
that is machine readable. It doesn't describe the item, it is only a number
to reference that item. Just like your phone number, it means nothing, but
everytime someone dials that number, it gets to you.
"gareman" ...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.

...Question About Missing Data
So, this is probably really easy, but I just want to ask and see if I may be
missing something here. Some data on vendor numbers changed. Let’s say IBM
used to have a vendor number 12345 and now it’s vendor number is 56789. I
can identify IBM as IBM, but I really want to use the number, not the name.
Should I set up a table that ties the numbers together, so that Access knows
12345 = 56789? Or, should I do some kind of Update Query and change all
incidences of 12345 to be 56789? Or, is there some other, method, like a
‘best practices for missing data’?

forms. Please help.
