Calculations using empty cells
I have a spreadsheet with three columns: Current balance, withdrawals, and
deposits. Current balance is determined by subtracting withdrawals and
adding deposits to the balance in the line above.
Suddenly I have started getting a cell entry
in the current balance cell.
A typical entry in the cell is for G43 would be:
=G42-E43+F43 and the sudden new result is #VALUE.
All three columns have cells formatted as numbers.

...conditional formatting of row based on cell
I want to apply conditional formatting to a whole row
based on the contents of one cell in that row.
For example, if cell L2 contains the word 'sport', i want
the whole of row 2 to be shaded.
I'm guessing this is pretty simple, but seem to be having
a bit of a mental blockage.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks :)

I'm using VBA code in Excel 2007. I am having a strange problem. The
cells have content. Some of them, but not all of them, are selected
from Data Validation lists (drawn from a named range). However, when
I try to access their values in VBA, it says they are empty!''
For example, the simple code:
Debug.Print "Cell value is: " & ActiveSheet.Cells(2, 7).Value
results in the output:
Cell value is:
I even tried the following code, to make sure it was not a problem
with the ActiveSheet reference:

I need to refer to the sheet name in a formula and can't figure out how to do it.
I can't find a Function which will do this. I did discover ActiveSheet.Name but
I have been unsuccessful in getting it work in a function.
Specifically I have sheets named "1.a" , "1.b" , "1.c" . . . "99.a" , "99.b" , "99.c"
and need to get these names into cell C3 of each sheet. The sheets may not be
in order and there may be missing sheets.
Thanks in advance for any help.

I have two windows as part of my application, say W1 and W2. They are
both derived from CFrameWnd. I have a class derived from

(the property sheet is modal to W1) and then create another instance
of my property sheet (P2) from W2 (modal to W2), I cannot close P1 by

ineffective; the dialog remains open. Then, if I close P2 by clicking

If you have data in your worksheet and you say delete all the data in the

will always go to the data row that you have just deleted. There seems no
way to get the "Last Cell" to update to where the last data is. Does anyone
know to resolve this issue please.
Thanks in advance.

picked up. If I use the "Wrap Text" property it only shows the sentence in
that cell. If I don't use it I get the  (brackets) in place of the carriage
Maybe you could merge those cells (A1:A3 or did you really mean A1:C1?)
But be aware that merging cells causes trouble with sorting, pasting, and lots
of other stuff.

do it. I want the multiple cells not just to have the same information but
be connected to the same cell. I want multiple cells to take the information
from ex. cell D4. So everytime i change cell D4 every cell that is linked to
it changes. Do I have to input =D4 into every single cell that I want to

from changing relatively.

Hi, I'd like to know if there's a simple way to unlock or lock cells.
I'm not sure if "Lock" is the correct term here. For example, if you

the "$") from the formula or to ad it without manually doing it?
Thanks for your help!
You can use a macro to change the reference style (absolute vs relative), but
you can also do it manually.
Select the portion of the formula (just a single cell reference or the entire
formula if you want) and hit the F4 key to cycle through all 4 options.

Or other ways to finish similar tasks?
With PowerShell v2, you *must* leave the "control console" running. You
cannot reconnect to a remote session once you close the console that started

Your formula would be:
The best way to create these formulae is to get Excel to do it.
1: Type = into your cell
2: Navigate to your sheet1!a1 cell. You will notice in the formula bar that
Excel is adding its address to your formula
3: Type +
4: Navigate to your sheet2!b2 cell.
5: Hit enter
Once you learn this, you will never type a cell address again.
