Tracking Dates For Future Occurrences
Can this be done? I want to track a yearly review. I would like the date,
once entered - say 6/1/2009, to conditionally format to change yellow 30 days
before, then red 15 days before, and then to stay red until the date is
updated again for say 6/1/2010. Can this be done? I am new to all this,

would like to be able to insert a hyperlink so that I can jump to a specific
However, rather than inserting all of the hyperlinks manually (I will have
to replicate this over many workbooks) I wondered if there was a formula to
allow me to jump to a cell (say A1) in another worksheet, based on the name
of that worksheet being entered in a cell reference.
For example - a number of worksheets called "Sheet1", "Sheet2", "Sheet3",

There, uncheck the R1C1 reference style setting.

I am having trouble parsing the date and time in a field. I download
data from a data base and the date and time come together in one
field. I want to seperate the two. The date and time comes across as
the following: "2/1/2009 14:37" in the cell. When I parse it, it
seperates into three columns as follows: "2/1/2009", 2:37 AM", and
"PM" I can see what is going on but I would like to get two columns
with one as the date and the other as the correct time. are they any
ideas on how to address this?
Try using the TimeValue and DateValue functions.

formatting for same-cell date and time, it seems kind of odd that there =
a shortcut to facilitate entry.) Is it possible to create an entirely =

I am trying to find a simple way of moving data in horizontal columns
(referencing the key in column 1) to vertical colums (still referenceing the
same key). This would mean automatically repeating the values in column one
for every entry in the moved columns.
I can do this through the pivot table, but this is a long drawn out process.
I'm not sure if this will work for you, but you can try this:
- Highlight & copy on the horizontal value you want to make vertical
- Now highlight the vertical area you want these value to got
- Right Click when highlighted & choose...Rename Cell

You can't. The closest you will get is to hide column headings, via Excel

How can I merge 2 cells without losing data from the other cell?
Not possible I'm afraid. Try placing the dat from both cells into one
and use "Center across selection" under Format>Cells>Alignment
Merge cells always end up causing grief. they are best avoided.

I am plotting in regularly basis a certain set of data in excel.
Based on some data analysis this set of data has to be fitted to these
y = 1/x^a (1) and /or
y = b/x^c (2)
from data analysis, constants a, b and c are found and are placed lets say
in cells A1, B1, C1.
On my graph, I am putting then two small text labels where the real equation
is displayed: smth. like: y = 1/ x^3.45 and / or y = 0.256 / x^3.12 The
whole process is similar with excel curve fitting, when the “show equation on

I am trying to get a feel for some probabilistic properties. For
example, I am trying to look at the statistics of the intervals between
randomly occurring pulses. I have no problem getting a column of
uniformly distributed pulse times, but they are unsorted, Every time I
recalculate with cmd-=, I get a new unsorted set of pulse times because
of the use of the RAND function.
Is there a way of taking this unsorted column and pasting it into
another colun that would be sorted without invoking a macro?
To simplify and be more specific consider the following.
