I am using excel 2002 and my boss 2003. I want to tab to specific cells in my work sheet. Can anyone help me get started? You could try the named range approach. Select your *second* cell for data entry and then hold down <Ctrl> and continue to select all the rest of the desired cells in order, ending with selecting your *first* cell *last*. While the cells are still selected, click in the name box and give this range a short name such as "Entry1". Now, when you're ready for data entry, simply click on the range name in the name box. The focus for the range is th...

First of all - apologies if this is in the wrong group. I wasn't sure if it should be newusers (which I am) or programming (which I might need). I have inherited a lottery syndicate at work after the previous organiser retired. He kept an Excel 97 spreadsheet with 8 columns - A (Date), B to G (Winning numbers) and H (Bonus number). This list has now grown to about 800 rows as each draw's numbers are added to the bottom of the list (I will be removing about 600). I have adapted the spreadsheet to automatically check our numbers against the winning numbers (using HLOOKUP) after I have ...

Periodically I open a work book and the calculation option has been changed to manual and I cannot figure out why. It seems that it would have to be done by a user and most of my spreadsheets are only used by me. Any ideas out there Mark, Calculation, auto or manual, is set by the first workbook that's opened. It is that way for any other workbooks opened in that instance of excel. Look for a workbook you might have opened first that's been set to Manual and saved that way.

I have a time management spreadsheet with data stored against work type and date.

Hi, some simple questions which I hope someone can help with... I am using excel on a computer with "danish locale". This means that numbers are displayed default like 1234,56. How do I change this to a format using a decimal point (instead of a comma)? How do I find the difference between to times? I have cells which just have times (not dates), and I want to find the difference between two times in hours. For example cells with 08:00 and 09:30 should give a difference of 1.5 Excel help gives an example like =TEXT(B2-A2,"h"), but this gives an error... Thanks, Pet...
