Hyperlink via indirect cell reference
Hi I have workbook that contains a number of sheets. On a separate sheet I would like to be able to insert a hyperlink so that I can jump to a specific sheet. However, rather than inserting all of the hyperlinks manually (I will have to replicate this over many workbooks) I wondered if there was a formula to allow me to jump to a cell (say A1) in another worksheet, based on the name of that worksheet being entered in a cell reference. For example - a number of worksheets called "Sheet1", "Sheet2", "Sheet3", "Sheet4". In another sh...

Create static text from cell reference
Hey everyone... I have two columns of text which I'm combining in a third column using the formula (for C1, for example) =A1 & char(10) & B1 This gives me the contents of A1 on a line above the contents of B1 and works fine. What I NEED to do is somehow create column C as TEXT, not as a REFERENCED data from columns A and B. How do I create a cell that contains the actual TEXT content of another cell instead of a REFERENCE to the other cell? TIA... Select all the cells in "C" that have content.

Your thoughts on Money 2005?
After reading through the posts today, here are some of my thoughts on Money 2005 and how to resolve some of the issues. #1 MS should offer a 15 year anniversary edition of MS Money 98 that works on WinXP... #2 Undo all the extras. Give us a Basic Edition product that allows us to balance the checkbook, manually download our QIF/OFX files, do a budget and add a calendar to remind us of bills...that's it. Remove the bloat that really makes MS 2005 slower and buggy. #3 Allow a feature that will let us revert back to a former version. Sure, you tell us to backup our previous data, bu...
