Increasing number of columns in spreadsheet

Someone has reduced the number of columns in the spreadsheet I'm using just 
to A - AD.

I need to increase the size of the spreadsheet back to standard number of 
columns.  How do I do this?

They're probably just hidden.

Select column AD header and drag a few inches to the 
right. Then right click within column AD and select Unhide.

Another way:

Edit|Goto (or hit F5 or ctrl-g)

Then format|columns|Unhide

Column Chart with multiple vertical axis
I tried building a chart that displays 1 series in dollar sales and 1 series in unit sales. I tried putting one on a secondary axis, but it always overlaps the columns and changing the series overlap setting doesn't seem to have any effect?

Change autonumber field to number field
Is there a convenient way to change an autonumber field to a number field? I tried using the table design view but received the error: "You can't change the data type or field size of this field; it is part of one or more relationships. If you want to change the data type of this field, first delete its relationships in the Relationships window." If I were to break and remake the relevant relationships, would that suffice or might there be downstream effects which are not rectified when the relationships are remade?

Culling low columns
Hi, I am a member of a local Bass club and we post the results of each 11 tournaments on a spreadsheet. The three lowest tournaments are culled from the total.

The next row has the next member......... Hope that I have given enough information...If not please advise... -- patenglish -----------------...

List Box
Thanks for helping. I have a list box showing three columns of data from another sheet. The problem is that the widths of the columns in the list box are really far out, and I need to adjust them somehow. The columns are B, E, and AA (B-D and E-Z are merged) Here is the Listrange; MAIN!$B$16:$AA$39 The first column especially is really wide, and results in a massive scroll along to see the others, and strangely the third column is thinner !

Convert time to a number when linking?
I'm referencing a time value in Worksheet "A" from the Data worksheet "B" like this; =Data!A1. Cell A1 is formatted as time and shows as 01:00, and I need it to be a general number (just a 1) in Worksheet "A" so I can divide it by another general number. Cells B1 & B2 are formatted as general in the source worksheet. In other words, the difference between 1:00 (A1) and 8:00 (A2) is 7. At 1:00 the temp was 32 (B1) degrees and at 8:00 the temperature was 152 (B2) degrees. In these 7 minutes the temperature rose 120 degrees. What I'm trying t...

Subforms, Continuous Forms, and Locking Columns oh my...?
Hi, Ok, let me see if I can explain this... We're moving from Excel to Access. In Excel we could lock the first 5 columns in place. Great. In Access the only way to lock columns is to use the datasheet view. The problem with that is the user can change the width of the fields; also, I can't dynamically hide fields. I also have a requirement to have custom field labels. If I use the datasheet view, I'll get the grey boxes with fieldnames. I can blank them all out (I'm willing to live with this), but I can't add a Form Header to the datasheet view which allows me to ...

Increment Cell Numbers
I have a small question for some excel 2000 guru...

How do I get a pie chart to recognize a negative number?
I need to make a pie chart that has one part of the pie as a negative percentage. Does anyone know how to get my chart to recognize this negative number? Seriously? Pie charts can't handle negative numbers. How do you display it so it subtracts from the whole pie? How does the reader remember that the blue wedge is deducted? It just won't work. This is only reason #14 that pie charts are really not a very good design for a useful chart.

How do I format a cell for a custom part number?
