Killer macro idea for business mailings
One of you programmers should write a macro to validate a city from zip
code. I receive excel files from response cards and a lot of people will put
some random letters for their city instead of the actual city name, or maybe
they'll put the wrong abrieviation for their state. It would be awesome if
all the zipcodes could validate the state field and change if necessary and
the same for the city fields too.
Okay, have at it :)
Okay, well good idea I think anyways, but it turns out that my columns just
weren't wide enough so it didn't display more then 2 letters.

a second cell. This is for a questionaire that will have many questions with
the same four answer values. I want to be able to quickly create 100 button
groups that will each update a separate cell for scoring of the questionaire.

I have a macro that is generating Excel files. When the macro runs, it saves
two different tabs in the workbooks as values. It needs to test and wait
until the formulas that are pulling amounts from another database are
correctly populated with the amounts.
Right now, I am getting N/A# instead of amounts for some, but not all, of
the files. I think the problem is that the formulas have not completed
pulling the amounts before the macro pastes that tab as zeros. (N/A# is what

I need to have a global variable always contain the name of the

How do I covert PUB2000 documents to Pub2003 documents and vice versa?
Pub 2003 can open anything, no conversion necessary. Going backward is a bit
trickier. File - Save As and chance the file type to a Pub 2000 file.
Possible problems can arise if you've used a feature that was not available
in the 2000 version and your file size will grew immensely.
