able to help me.
I've got 2 questions....

...File size #11
I have read the other discussions on file sizes but they do not seem to
address my problem.
I have an Excel file that is 12mb large with low-res jpegs in it. This file
also has merged cells to make it look pretty. Does Excel look at these merged
cells as graphics? Is this why they are too big? I have run a macro to make
sure that it goes to the last cell.
How can I get the file smaller?
How big are the graphics? If you remove them from the file, what is the size
of the file and what is the size of the graphic files?

I have a work book that is linked to another and vise versa.
Workbook A is where the input of data is made;
Workbook B has a link to the input from workbook A;
Workbook A retrieves the altered data back as a link.
Although this all works fine with both books open, I note that if I open
workbook A by itself, that the data it retrieves from Workbook B is not
updated . If However, both books are open, there's no problem. I thought
linked books were updated automatically if the Update remote references has
been selected?? But it appears that the second book is not updated until it

linked to the xml data file they will download.
The idea is the user only needs to download the data for updates, not the
whole spreadsheet. However, since I cannot predict the path where the user

I have set my current workbook to split/freeze the first column and first 2
rows. Now, when I add a comment to the second row (in any column) my comments
are cut off if I should scroll down.
I don't ever remember the behavior before. And I don't know what I've done
to enable it but it's really annoying.

tools, I was considering using excel's online help.
The second option I have is to use some excel book for data analysis and
apply the techniques to data sets provided with the book.

careful though when you change it on the background as you need to know all
