I have successfully sorted my data to show repeating entries in

and putting them either into their own column(s) or an entirely
different spreadsheet altogether.
The goal is to save time in managing THOUSANDS of documents in this
manner so that my colleagues can easily pick up repeating entries and
take according action. Doing it manually is very time-inefficient.

I have Publisher 2003 on an XP OS and trying to print a newsletter with 2

It seems that the 2003 version does not have a "Book fold" option for the

For layout I choose "Booklet". What I get is page 6 and 1 on 1/2 of the

Why would an item that does not retain quantities take so long to reconcile?

How do i link my drop down list in a13 sheet 1 to column f in sheet 2.
if using Data Validation to create your drop down list the easiest way is to
range name column F in sheet 2
(go to sheet 2, click on F, click in name box (left hand side of formula
bar) type name (no spaces), press enter)
then click in Sheet1!A13, choose Data / Validation, choose List - click IN
the big white box, press you F3 key to bring up list of names in workbook,
choose the name, click OK, click OK again and it should work fine.
