#### Count Days until Completion

```Is there a way to count days (with a date enter in Start Column) until
"Completed" or "Cancel" is entered in my Status Column?

Right now, it is calculating on the Start and Completion Date.  If the
completion date is blank - I receive wrong date in the duration column.

Start Date:  4/1/10
Completion Date:  4/5/10
Status:  Completed
Duration:  4

pls

```Let's say your stuff is in A1:B4 with labels  in A;
In B4 to compute duration we could use any of these
A) =IF(B2>0, (B2-B1),"")  or=IF(B2, (B2-B1),"")  since a positive value in
B2 will be treated as TRUE
B) =IF(OR(B3="Completed",B3="Cancel"), B2-B1, "")
C) =IF(LEFT(B3)="C",B2-B1,"")

If the start date is in A1 the completed Dated in B1 in C1 put

=IF(OR(B1="",B1="cancel"),"",B1-A1)

and format C1 as a number

If Count is not in a certain range, delete Rows
I have a spreadsheet that is 59752 x 2, with the one column Contact ID A and the other column Contact Link ID. It is like an instant messaging system.

Help can't do a complete pc restore!
My hard drive crashed recently after upgrading a couple months ago from Vista to Windows 7. Prior to the hard drive crash, I completely backed up my pc to an external hard drive. As soon as I had a new hard drive in the pc, I restored everything. I was hoping it would restore the OS as well but I'm back with Vista, what I had before I did the restore.

Clear auto-complete
When I begin filling out my distribution lists, I get those (usually helpful) drop-down prompts which attempt to auto-complete my entries. However, our institution just rebuilt it's global directory, so most of these drop-down choices are obsolete.
