function to check for entry
I'll try and make this as clear as I can...
I am looking for a function that will check column b,c,d,e for an entr
if there is an entry then check row n in the same row for it's value.
that's the first bit, then I need to be able to check the date valu
(month) in column a and total it for the month.
perhaps I could run the first function only looking for month=1 o
something and just run it 12 times?
not sure how to go about this

Each time i try to enter a number range, for example, 8-
10, in Excel, it constantly re-formats it to a date. If I
change the formatting to "General" it turns it into a
random number, usually 38209. I would like to turn off
ALL auto-formatting, but that's probably asking too
much. How do I disable this frustrating feature?
When you enter "8-10" in a cell, that's not strictly a number but Excel
thinks you mean a date so converts it as such.
A date is a number and in your example the number 38209 represents August 10

Tell us what's in a1:a30. If they are all even numbers, you should
definitely get an even result. But if they include minutes, you can get an
odd number of hours.

I have a chart which should get a title. However, this should be partly be

Is this possible?
Yes it's possible but all of the chart title needs to be in the cell. So you
may need to use a helper cell and concatenate text and value.
