As Frank said, that's the maximum cols
But maybe you could try transposing your table / data ?
(Excel has a lot more rows than columns)
If so, try: http://tinyurl.com/2nmyy

If you want Explorer to open somewhere else, simply modify the
properties of the shortcut you're using to open it. All you need do is
create/modify the target field of your Windows Explorer shortcut to

Is there a way to specify a relative path to an XML data file imported into
Excel 2003? I am writing a web app that generates report data as XML for the
user to download to their local machine. This data is to be consumed by an
Excel reporting spreadsheet, which contains display-formatted tables and
charts that are mapped to various data fields in an XML Map, which is in turn
linked to the xml data file they will download.
The idea is the user only needs to download the data for updates, not the

now C1 will give me 30, but if i want to know what B1 will need to be if i

I have posted a cemetery survey on Excell spreadsheet. When I try to sort
the birth dates or death dates in ascending or descending order the range of
1900 dates will sort but the 1800 dates fall after the 1900 and will not
sort. Why? Is this inherit with this program?
The WinXL default dates start with 31 December 1899, so earlier "dates"
are interpreted as Text.
You can use helper columns and text functions (LEFT(),RIGHT(),MID()) to
put the Year, Month and Day in separate columns, then sort.
