Excel, how do I get ALT F C to work the same as ALT F Enter C ?
The above is an example, but it aplies to any menu. Before, if I pressed say,
ALT F, the drop down menu would appear and I could press, say, C and get to
the submenu. Now I have to press Enter, before the C, which is a bother.
On my Windows 2000 version 5.00.2195 with Excel '97 and Excel 2003 the
Alt F C still works.
What version software / Excel are you using?

In a single cell, suppose I want text to appear on two lines. Viz:
How do I do that so that I specify the wrap point?
If you are typing the data into the cell use Alt-Enter between each
string to indicate where you want a line break to occur.
Case One<Alt-Enter>Case Two
Alt + Enter

I am using Excel 2000 (not by choice) and I need to add a hyperlink to an

the words "here" to each have a separate hyperlink.
Any ideas? I can manage some VBA too if necessary.
You can't do that in Excel.

Being formatted as numbers doesn't automatically mean they are numbers.

Hello, I'm having trouble with a formula and I'm hoping someone can
help. :confused: Sample Data Includes the following:
Pay Period Start Pay Period End Pay Period #
12/16/01 12/29/01 26
12/30/01 01/12/02 25
01/13/01 01/26/02 24
01/27/02 02/09/02 23

I have a chart setup, currently with reference to 31 cells width.
The chart looks great if the user places a value in each of the 31 cells,
however if there are only say 20 values placed across the cell row, the
chart is displayed over to one side, with nil values displayed where no dat
values were entered.
Is there a way to have the chart automatically vary the width depending on
the amount of values entered across the refernced row of cells?
If there was only 20 values entered, then the chart would show 1-20 charted
and leave out the 21-31.

The issue is that the internet connection locks up if I click on a link or
attempt to print from within an open website. It does not happen each time,
but often enough to make me want to pull my hair! I have to shut down the
connection - the message says it is 'not responding,' and reconnect,
sometimes 2 or 3 times, to be able to use the link from the website.
