Re-set a date to the first of the month
I need to re-set whatever date is entered in a cell to the first of
that month. For example if someone enters 9/11/2008, I need it to be
re-set to 9/1/2008.
Is this possible, and if so, can you please tell me how to do it??
thanks in advance!
You could use a formula in another cell:
Then copy|paste special|values over the original range (a column???)

Can this be done. I have windows 7 and want to convert a word document so I
can send to daughter who only has Microsoft works.
Windows 7 is an operating system; it does not come with any version of Word
(the subject of this newsgroup) or any other word processor except WordPad
(Notepad is probably better regarded as a text editor). You can create a
file in WordPad and save it in Word .doc or RTF format.
But perhaps you mean that you also have Word 2007. If so, use Office Button

Not sure if this is an Excel problem or a general Microsoft products
"feature", but here goes:-
I've inherited a HUGE spreadsheet with 6 figures of cells in total(!)
and I'm told that some have been highlighted for query or error with
"???" in the cell (in addition to other text in that cell).
Trouble is, as soon as I do "find" with the "?" character, it seems to
ignore it, as if ? is some reserved character.
Does anyone have any idea how I can get round this?
The ? character is used as a wild card character (any single character).

I am attempting to create a separate chart for each row of my worksheet
(about 300 rows = 300 separate charts). Is there an easy way to do this?
The actual data range will change month-to-month, so I would not want to
have to recreate 300 new charts each month individually.
While I have never created (or tried to create) 300 charts in a single
workbook, it is easy to believe that performance and stability of Excel
might become a question.
Do you have to have 300 charts? Or will one chart (or a few) that can
be easily changed to reflect new data suffice? If so, adapt the ideas
