Referencing merged cells
I'm having trouble referencing a merged cell in another workbook.
Say I merge cells A1 to C1 in workbook 1. When I make this the active cell,
the Name Box says "A1". When I go to another workbook (say, workbook 2), go
to cell B1, type "=" and then go to the merged cell and select it, I get
'workbook1'!$A$1:$C$1 as the formula and, of course, the "#VALUE" error.
I've successfully tried typing "=sum(" without the quotes hen clicking on
the contents of the cell and then adding the ")" and it works O.K. but there

I have an interactive graph which graphs data from a set column. This
column changes depending on what is selected on a list selector. I was

I was hoping that that this would be something easy that I could write
into the excel chart wizard, like =$AD$11, but it is not. Any help
would be appreciated.

In Excel 2002 I want to display the current row of worksheet A in worksheet
B (in another format).
Does anyone know how to do this? Ideal would be if this updates
automatically, but performance wise I guess a macro activated by a button in
worksheet A would be the best solution.
I don't know of a way in a formula to determine the active cell of the
worksheet. Worksheets other than the active one don't have an active cell.
I think macros are the only way. Put this in a regular module:

How do you format a formula to display the sum of, let's say A1 to "however

I hope I phrased this correctly.
You could do it this way =SUM(A:A), that will cover the full column.

...Changing formula in multiple cells or range simultaneously
I am trying to change the value in multiple cells in a

there a way that I can highlight the range and then change

You could put 2 in an empty cell.

One of the major limitations that I find there is with Excel is the ability
to display dynamic content within headers and footers. Specifically, without

standard format), time (in a standard format), file name, sheet name, and

Using Excel 2003 I have written a set of macros that is used with workbooks
with a lot of hand entered data. Right now the macros need frequent
updates as more features are added. To facilitate providing updates, I
felt it was necessary to separate the code from the data so that the user
didn't have to do anything when the code was upgraded.
To accomplish this, I created an addin containing the macros. Now I just
email the new addin and users are good to go. The problem is that the
addin is automatically attached to every workbook I open and there are a
