For the date use
replace A1 with the first cell of your range
you probably have to reformat the first to

I put a number into a cell click on the next cell and the first cell reverts
to 0. If I format to number with 2 decimal places it will be ok but when I

You haven't said what number you are trying to put into the cell, but I
suspect that the number is less than 0.5.
A quick test shows that if you set the cell to no decimal places then enter
a number less than 0.5 it is displayed 'rounded down' so it will show as
zero, if it's 0.5 or above it displays as 1.

Just to give a similar example, this formula =SUMIF(A1:A9,"<>0") adjusts for
any and all empty cells in A2 to A9. It no longer matters if any of the

I set up a pivot table and designed a chart, saved and closed out of the
workbook. Upon returning to work on this project, when selecting the chart
menu to work with my source data, the source data is grey and not accessible.
What might be causing this and can I correct it?
It's a pivot chart. As soon as it's created, it's linked permanently to the
pivot table, and you cannot change the source data. you cannot add more data
that's not in the pivot table to the chart, nor can you remove data that is
in the pivot table from the chart.
