number rounding in MS Excel
This may have been answered many times.
In MS EXCEL is there a way that it calculates all numbers to 2 decimal
digit accuracy instead of the 15 digit default?
Thanks in advance for the answer.
You can set your decimal places in your cells as 2 and then check Precision
As Displayed on the Tools / Options / Calculation page. Be careful though,
it means what it says!!

A client of mine has Office X for Mac. I am wondering if this edition
of Excel supports SpreadSheetML. I have heard that it also support the
new Open XML formats (same as Office 11). Does anyone know if either of
these statements is accurate?
Thanks in advance,
I believe that both statements are wrong.
The XML converter for Office Next on the Mac has not yet been developed.
It's not likely to come until after the PC Office team ships their product
to retail -- until they stop CHANGING the thing :-)
My guess is that the converter won't appear until sometime...Public Folder link to Excel File
I have a user that claims that he had a shortcut to a spreadsheet "in
his public folders" at his old job. Obviously, he's an end user that
may or may not know what he's talking about.... I'm trying to figure
out the best way to accomodate him.
He basically wants an Excel file stored on a shared folder to be
available to all user as either a shortcut, or a link in the public
folders (can't post to a folder as he will be updating the sheet
regularly). When a user clicks on the shortcut/link, it would just
launch Excel and display the file.

I am using Filters in Excel 2003.
Every cell in sheet B is linked to every cell in sheet A. That way I
can alter data in B without corrupting the original data in A. I then
highlight the cells in B that I want to assign a filter to and select
Advanced Filter. I have no criteria so I do not set that. I click OK.
I then select Filter again and this time select Auto Filter. Drop
down arrows appear at the top of my columns. Great, no problems so
far, I then select from the drop down list the criteria that I want to
filter. Again no problems, my list filters correctly.

How can I set up a calendar with 8.5x11 (landscape) pages with pictures for
each month to print on tabloid (11x17) paper so it can be saddle stiched? I
would like the picture on the top half and calendar on the bottom half. I
keep ending up with two of the same pictures on one page and two calendars
on the next page. Thanks, Bob
I assume you are taking this to a professional printer so why not just set
each page up as a landscape 8� x 11 and let your printer do the rest?
