Auto Fill Cells
I am building an inpatient log for a nursing home. I need to auto fill the
patient's name and address from their ID #
Example in column C (ID#) 255 - would automatically fill in Column D (last
name), Column E(first name), Column F(middle initial), and Column G(address)
At this point - all of the cells are blank.
Sounds nice. Where is the data coming from? Take a look at these links for
some ideas of how you can go about doing this:

Just a question?
is there any way of using some vba that will add coments to a cell and
have the comment box appear as it does if i add my own comments
manually, would like the comment hidden until the cell is selected and
then have it show up!
obviously i know this happens when you manually process comments, but
i would like the comment box to appear and display values that are in
another worksheet within the same workbook.
hope that makes sense.

I'm looking for a formula that will count specific cells (not a range - A17,
A27, A37 and so on) that will have a certain value (above $1.00 to make it
easy). So if the cell has a value of $1.00 or less it will not count in the
total; If it is above $1.00 if will count. If A17 is above $1.00, A27 is
$0.50 & A37 is $3.00 the count will be 2.

I would really like to have a Excel spreadsheet with two worksheets, the

I don't recall this shortcut in xl (any version).
I'm guessing that you had a macro that did something special.
In xl2002, you could use a macro like this (assigned to ctrl-shift-l)
But I think I've read posts that calculating a single range can be bad--it can
screw up the calculation dependencies.
