...Creating an Excel table from Access
I have an Access database which I use to log downtime for systems. I have a

Down the left side of the report need to go the names of the services, with
the days (numerically like: 1, 2, 3 .. 29, 30 etc) across the top. Then I
need to count the number of times each service was down on a give day, and
insert that information into the necessary cell - so if intranet services
had been down twice on 16th March, for example, there would be a 2 in column

Right click the sheet tab of the sheet you want to protect, View code and
paste the code below in. Change the ProtectedSheet to the correct sheet name
and the outsheet variable to where you want to go if the user doesn't agree.
A couple of points. If macros aren't enabled it won't work and it provides
very little security because Excel security is weak.

Hello. I have a Excel file that contains a large list of Tracking Numbers.
The tracking numbers are from two sets of order types- Internet orders and
Orders that are from the Internet are matched up with a order number such as
"5678". Orders from the mail-order side are designated by initials "MO".
So in Excel it'll look something like this:

...How to total cells in a range with data input
Greetings to all members
I am running Excel 97.
An office colleague presented me with an issue that might be of interest to
any Excel whiz and seasoned programmers. I would certainly appreciate any
pointers in solving it. So here goes.
The set of values includes 33 cells ranging from B4:D14. The data type is
numeric. Data is only input in a few cells.
What would be the function to enter in, say, cell A15 to indicate the total
number of cells in range B4:D14 that have received data input? Or does it
involve some behind the scene VBA programming?
