No but you can stop them staying there.

For the date use
replace A1 with the first cell of your range
you probably have to reformat the first to
mm/dd/yy (or whatever the setting is)
Note that you can do this by just using format but if you want to compare to
other cells with just pure d...How do I copy the result of a check box into another check box?
I'm trying to copy the result of a "check box form field" into another check
box. For example: if I check (or uncheck) one box in a form, another box
later in the protected form will also be checked (or unchecked) , much like
the ref + F9 command for the text form field. Is this possible? Thanks.
This cannot be done without macros. If your project will allow macros - see

G...cell contents revert to 0 when i click on the next cell
I put a number into a cell click on the next cell and the first cell reverts
to 0. If I format to number with 2 decimal places it will be ok but when I
try to take out decimal places it goes back to zero,
You haven't said what number you are trying to put into the cell, but I
suspect that the number is less than 0.5.
A quick test shows that if you set the cell to no decimal places then enter
a number less than 0.5 it is displayed 'rounded down' so it will show as
zero, if it's 0.5 or above it displays as 1.
If you need to put numbers less than 0.5 into youe c...is there a way to program my Excel file to do a loop?
If I want B10 to B17 all follow the change of the same number(copy cell),
let's say I put it in A1,
and C10 follows the change of A2(copy cell), and C11 follows the change of
A3(copy cell), and C12 follows the change of A4(copy cell),
then I have 4 variables in my calculations: A1, A2, A3, A4.
I want to loop each of the variables in a different set,
then I hope the whole worksheet will be able to refresh following the change
of A1, A2, A3, A4,
and then I want to find the very set of A1, A2, A3, A4 that gives the
smallest value of D10,

I have a formula in cell H21, for example, reads like this:
is there a way to adjust the formula so that an empty cell in G21 doesn't

Just to give a similar example, this formula =SUMIF(A1:A9,"<>0") adjusts for
any and all empty cells in A2 to A9. It no longer matters if any of the
cells are empty, the formula correctly gives the correct addition of A1
plust a sum of everything between A2 to A10 without any #VALUE! results.

...Automatic changes in cells
Hi for some reason I now have to save my work for any formlas etc to change
when I update a worsheet, how can I stop this as it is a pain and sometimes
I need to do changes to see how they work before saving the work.
Click on Tools | Options | Calculation tab and set to Automatic
calculation, as it is probably set to Manual. You can press F9 to
force a recalculation under a manual setting.
Make sure you save the file with the Automatic setting, to avoid it
happening next time.
Hope this helps.

The following will strip the text from the active cell and place the number
in the adjcent cell one column to the left. If there are subsequent numbers
in the original string you will get erroneous results. Put the cursor on the
cell to be processed and run the macro.

I have two tables - one position, one personnel - which has a 1-to-many

you can click on the tab that has the personnel information (if there is
