Is there a possibility/way to run an SQL query in an excel data sheet?
I have quite some data like the sample below, now i would like to have the
sum of spending for each person. Like it is possible in Access.
Advice would be appriciated.

Looking for some help. I need to know what this column chart is called?
Or how to make it?

I can't find any option in Excel to make this chart. Maybe it was not
made in Excel? Or I need a specific plugin?

Formula or VBA?
I am trying to create a formula to assign a region to populate a chart. I
know there is a way to use the OFFSET function to point ot a certain section
of a data sheet, but what if i insert a line between the title and the
data.(done programmactically)? the problem is that inserted lines do not
automatically include into the data range for a chart.
The data wants to be sorted from newest to oldest. Would it be easier to
create a formula to assign a 'chart data area' or simply reassign the data
area every time the table is updated
Thanks for the input.

In excel 2000, I created an attendance worksheet for my
classes.(Alphabetized names down left vertical column. Dates across
top of horizontal row.) I added a different color to all cells in
every other row to make for easier reading of each student's name and
absences. Every other row stays with a white background.
My question: I wondered if it was possible to lock row colors while
allowing data to change on top of them. If a new student is added to
my class in alphabetical order, the alternating color pattern is often
lost. It is a pain to rechange row and cell colors.

What is the procedure for changing the z-order of various lines and
bars in an Excel 2007 chart, such as drop lines, high-low lines, up/
down bars, and error bars?
I observed that when I add drop lines to an Excel 2007 chart, they
appear in front of the underlying data -- in my case, the underlying
data is displayed as a plotted area. I want the plotted area to be
fully visible with no lines over it.
I would like to send the drop lines to the back and keep the plotted
area in the front, but there is no option to do this.
So, is there a procedure for adjusting the z-order of drop...How refresh imported data automatically?

...Question About Missing Data
So, this is probably really easy, but I just want to ask and see if I may be
missing something here. Some data on vendor numbers changed. Let’s say IBM
used to have a vendor number 12345 and now it’s vendor number is 56789. I
can identify IBM as IBM, but I really want to use the number, not the name.
Should I set up a table that ties the numbers together, so that Access knows
12345 = 56789? Or, should I do some kind of Update Query and change all
incidences of 12345 to be 56789? Or, is there some other, method, like a

I have noticed that each time I import data into an Excel spreadsheet
via a macro, a new named range (for the same range) is created. This
does not pose a problem, but after a while, I'll have a huge number of
named ranges that will never be used. Why does Excel name the range
and how can I stop this? I noticed in the recorded macro, there was a
line .Name = "drd_5". I commented this out to see what would happen,
but it just renamed the range "ExternalData_5". The next one was

That's the question. I have my data in Excel and the chart in Excel but not
all the data cells are used. Everytimg I open the chart it wants to update
and I want it to stay the same.
Any ideas on how to lock the chart?
Just a few ideas:
You could lock the cells that are shown in the chart.
Or you could copy the cells and paste as values (assuming formulas were used
that update when other cells change).
