Duplicate entries in excel spreadsheet
I have lists of attendees to an annual event. I've taken the lists and
combined them, and sorted them by first and last name alpha. I want to keep
the names and corresponding collumns for those that attended my event more
than once and dump the rest. Is there a way to sort them quickly as i have
over 15,000 names.
I'd insert two new columns before the list, say A and B. In the first data
row in B, say B2, I'd enter a formula that combines the first and last names
to create a field the uniquely identifies each record: =C2&D2 and copy it
down to all records. N...Excel file size reduction

Here's some additional info to the earlier post on the
date cell function malfunction. Been isolated to the
function to insert the date (cell format/date). It seems the
application cannot interpret the system date properly.
Always inserts/interprets the date as CurrentMonth-01-2011,
instead of actual date. I cannot use the application this
way. I am using the 'general' setting in cell format, then
entering the string Month(abr)-day [eg= dec-17] instead of
letting application enter the date automatically.
Is there a patch available for this issue?

Hi,I am trying to create a DATASET object using an .xsd file that has an
import tag. The imported .xsd in turn has an include tag for another .xsd. Is
it possible to create a dataset based on such an xsd using the XSD.exe or are
there any other tools available for this? FYI, the xsd tool works for this
schema creating classes if the the path of the IMPORTED xsd is explictly
given on the command line. But if I run it with the '/d' directive, it fails
saying that the SchemaLocation attribute has an invalid URI. Please let me
know any information on this.

I have a table, with a row added weekly, and a chart based on those data.
But chart must display data from last 6 week only, i.e. chart's data series
must be defined dynamically. Of course I can do it, using some hidden dummy
sheet, where data for last 6 week are automatically collected, and which
serves as source table for chart. But is there a way to avoid this - p.e. by
using dynamic named ranges? I tried to enter range names into Values field
for Chart Series, but I got 'The formula you typed contains an error'
message. Is there some trick for it, or it is hopeless?

I have a problem in our office. For the most part Excel works fine. We can
open files and save them as long as we dont use the 'Save As' feature and try
to save it to a Network Drive. Files can be saved locally then have to be
copied to the Network Share.
Of course my first reaction was 'Permissions Issue'. BUt each user has full
access to the folder. They can right click and create a new Excel file and
rename it. BUt if they open that same file then try to 'Save As' back to the
same folder Excel hangs. Using the 'Save' feature works just fine.
...Excel Frequently Used Worksheets
I am looking for a funtion in Excel similar to the MS-
Word menu option "WORK". In Word, this feature keeps a
separate list of frequestly used documents that could be
used a default docs such as a monthly report, letter(s),
project headings/sections, etc. This list is separate
from the standard 1-9 last opened documents.
In Excel I see this feature as a great way to keep a
similar set of spreadsheets that one must access
frequently, but in the recently used list (1-9), could
get rolled off.
I looked through all the commands in Excel and could not
find it at all.

You can open an Excel file with Word, then save it. Word saves as doc files
(if that's what you mean). Be sure to type the doc extension, or Word will
overwrite your original xls file.
