Column Reference to External Source As a Variable
Can anyone help me convert the column referenced in the formula below into a variable that the user can define?
More specifically, I have several columns that I need to read from an external workbook (Short_Billy.xls). Each column to the right of column C represents an additional day out in a 14 day projection from today (whose data is held in column C).
In cell I5 of my active workbook (Inventory.xls), I would like the user to be able to enter a value representing the number of days out they would like to see the projection for (0=today=Column C, 1=Tomorrow=Column D, etc.). In cell I6, I...The Sum from 1 worksheet cell to another worksheet cell

I have to review starting for example with May, I need to find any cell in

So if May is null and Jun and Apr are not null than I would count that as 1.
If May is null and either Jun or Apr are null then I would not count them.

I have a database which fuel records are stored in. The data is
stored in two tables. The first records the daily logs that operators
use each time they fuel up. It stores their name, the key they used
(keylock fuel system - it's ancient) the unit number of the equipment
using the fuel, and the amount of fuel they took. The second table
stores the month end information retrieved from the key lock print
out. It keeps a running total of the amount of fuel taken with each
key, and the operator using that key.

only left align. Format Cells --> Number is set to General, so I don't know
why it won't change the alignment.
Other than the worksheet being corrupted, I don't know what could be wrong

Background: I have three queries with different customer account groups. Not
every salesperson has customer accounts in every accountgroup - so, he will

Now, I would like to get a sum of commission earned by each salesman
calculated from all three queries together.
Since the salesman has no record in one query the total sum of that specific
salesman is not shown.
Any idea how to solve that problem?
