Referencing merged cells
I'm having trouble referencing a merged cell in another workbook.
Say I merge cells A1 to C1 in workbook 1. When I make this the active cell,
the Name Box says "A1". When I go to another workbook (say, workbook 2), go
to cell B1, type "=" and then go to the merged cell and select it, I get
'workbook1'!$A$1:$C$1 as the formula and, of course, the "#VALUE" error.
I've successfully tried typing "=sum(" without the quotes hen clicking on
the contents of the cell and then adding the ")" and it works O.K. but there
should be an easi...Easy formula question -sum of 1 cell to end
Thanks for looking .
How do you format a formula to display the sum of, let's say A1 to "however
far down the spreadsheet goes" without having to name an ending cell?
This sheet has no end and I need to display the total in a column that keeps
I hope I phrased this correctly.
You could do it this way =SUM(A:A), that will cover the full column.

I have an interactive graph which graphs data from a set column. This
column changes depending on what is selected on a list selector. I was
wondering if there is a way to label the y axis whatever was in, say
I was hoping that that this would be something easy that I could write
into the excel chart wizard, like =$AD$11, but it is not. Any help
would be appreciated.

In Excel 2002 I want to display the current row of worksheet A in worksheet
B (in another format).
Does anyone know how to do this? Ideal would be if this updates
automatically, but performance wise I guess a macro activated by a button in
worksheet A would be the best solution.
I don't know of a way in a formula to determine the active cell of the
worksheet. Worksheets other than the active one don't have an active cell.
I think macros are the only way. Put this in a regular module:

Is there a way that when I enter something into A1 &B1 it will fill down on

copy Apples and $12 , then if I type Pears & $5 it will copy to the next
blank cell and so on
Thanks in advance for your help....Bob Vance
I'm assuming you have this list on another sheet. This little macro
will do the following:
When you enter something in B1 of the first sheet, it will copy A1:B1 to the
bottom of the list in Columns A & B of the second sheet.
It will then clear (erase) the conte...Not allow entering repeated references in a column
Sorted! :) :) :) ... sth was missing (<)
The formula to be used is =COUNTIF($A$1:$A$25,A1)<=1
and NOT =COUNTIF($A$1:$A$25,A1)=1
... little things make the difference, isn�t it ;) ?
Thank you very much for your support and your time.
