I have a spreadsheet with formulas referring to another worksheet. I need to
copy the columns however, each time I do, the formulas advance to another
cell. Which is an incorrect reference, skewing my results.
You need to modify the formulas to use absolute references. Edit each of the
cell addresses in the formula and put $ (dollar signs) in front of the column

I have an excel spreadsheet of 279 rows: a 4-row header
and 25 sets of 11 rows each. Row heights within each set
have been set individually, though the pattern is common
to each set.
When the 275 non-header rows are sorted as a group, the
row heights of most, but not all, of the final 2 rows of
each set are changed. The heights of the first 9 rows of
each set are not changed.
The final row of each set is empty except for one cell.

I have an IF statement that puts "" in cell based on a

which would leave a gap in the line graph. I want the gap
in the line graph indicating that there was no data for
that period. I do NOT want to chart a ZERO.
The question is . . . is there anyway in an IF statement
to say based on a certain condition, make the cell BLANK
or EMPTY (especially if the cell previously had data)?

Those objects actually sit above the worksheet (like on another layer).
You can't retrieve them using formulas.
Maybe a macro???

I'd like to dynamically change the size of my CButton derived control based
upon the text/bitmap size. So if the application calls SetWindowText
during program flow the button rect will update.
What's the best way to capture this and override the rect size?
You can use SetWindowPos to change its size. You can handle WM_SETTEXT
and see what text is being set to, calculate the size of the button,
change its size and then call the base class handler.
