Your information is great appreciated,
Your report is probably designed in portrait. This means it is designed to

to landscape it is still going to print less than 8-1/2" wide on the left

...two decimals - remove percentage sign
I have percentages that i'm displaying in graphs with data labels. I'd
like to remove the % sign so it is easier to view the data labels
because the graphs are small, and i'd like to do it with custom
formatting because there is quite a lot of data that i dont want to
convert to whole numbers.
I think the best way to do this is to somehow use custom formatting in
format cells -->number-->custom to multiply by 100 and display it that
way. is that possible?
Thanks for the help!

rows. Is there any way I can do this easily??
Any help is highly appreciated. Thanks in advance

Need help with conditional fomatting.
What I need:
I got a worksheet with 950 rows and 5 columns. The first row contain
the headers. Columns A, B, D and E contains unique values. But the
column C contains text values which repeats sequentially for 6-7 rows
and changes thereafter. Now I want to put up a line (using border)
through the whole row dividing this transition row.

on till 2 consequtive values differ. Now divide the 2 rows using the

Excel uses a sequencial number from either 1/1/1900, or 1/1/1904 (depending
on your options) as the date value
for Example 6/3/2005 is 38506 using the 1/1/1900

For any number to be converted into time format you need to divide tha
number by 24, since Excel time code is 24 (hr) code. then you forma
the divided answer (83.33) into time, you will get 8:00
