repost: split excel columns
Thank you for the feed back on the below question. When
using "text to columns" it seems to create new columns and
the info. in one column can be split but I was looking to
essentially create two columns in one. For instance,
within column D which was widened, I wanted two columns in
rows 5:15. I'm trying to convert something into an excel
template that is too long and don't want to change any of
the column widths already in place. I know you can do this
in Word when transferring an excel table. You would right

I need to sum a column of numbers if it matches two different criteria.

I'd like to make a column chart where the year and month are on one
axis and then I have a column for each #start and #end for each
month/year pair. Is there a way to tell the chart wizard that I want
to use those two columns for the x axis and then the #start and #end
columns for the other?

that can I set the formula to calculate the months difference between, say

If you have a grouped field, you won't be able to add a calculated item
to the pivot table. In the source data, you could add a column to
calculate the month for each record.

Using MSExcel 97.
I have two columns of data
e.g. A1: A4, containing values 5,10, 3, 6
B1:B4, containing values 3, 8, 7, 4
I wish to perform a count (e.g. in C5) of the number of rows where the
value in column A exceeds the respective value in column B (in this
case count = 3, as A1>B1, A2>B2, and A4>B4).
Just cannot get my formula right. Tried using an array (but difficult
when comparing the difference between two columns), and COUNT.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

I would like to have combo box functionality for the data validation feature

How can I do a chart with a stacked column beside a single column? When I build a stacked column chart, any new source data I add
wants to put it in the same stacked column.
Use one of the links on this page. You need to set up the data so the
single column is in a stacking position with no other columns of data.

I am having trouble when inserting columns in a large data field.
Whenever I insert a column at some point in the data field, th
formulas within the data field adjust, or 'stretch', to accomodate th
added column, however my conditional formatting gets pushed along t
the right and doesn't adapt itself in the same way the formulas do.
This means whenever I insert a column, the formulas remain correct bu
I have to reset the conditional formatting for the entire data field.
I would be extremely grateful for any advice on this situation.

Table B that have a matching XY coordinate in Table A. If Table A

I have a data set with categories in columns A-B, and data in columns C-I.
I've configured my chart to use stacked bars for the first 6 data series and
a line for the last one. The first 6 are revenue allocations, with the 7th
being a cumulative total.
Most of the chart looks as expected, but the first category or row of data
is displaying oddly. The figures in this row are all negative (or 0), so I
expect the top of the bar to sit at zero, but it doesn't. The top of the bar
sits at the value of the 7th/line series, so that the bottom of the bar is at
2x that (negative) value.
