Using variable names for cells
I seem to remember a technique where I could assign a variable name to
the contents of a cell so that whenever I wanted to use the contents,
all I had to do was call up the variable name. Unfortunately I cannot
find the way to set up the process. Any suggestsions or ideas would be
appreciated. Thanks and a Happy New Year.

I am trying to write an average formula that takes into account the blank
I had only cells A2, A4, A6 filled out, but when I do =average(A1:A6), it is
not treating the blanks as zeros so the answer is much higher than it should
Should I do a logic formula within the cells?
If you know the range, you could do the division yourself:
But this would include other non-numeric cells in the count of cells (6), too.

Hi, I'm in the proccess of buliding a new database. Its purpose is to store
various organisation contact details and then to produce reports based on
this that can be printed onto sticky labels. This much or basically finished.
However, we naturally don't want to print the whole database every time, so
I'm using a checkbox on the interface form that will filter the report so
that only checked records are prepared for printing. Can anyone tell what

...Summing cells in pivot tables
I have a problem summing cells in a pivot table. When I double-click on a

I can manually enter the cell addresses that I am trying to sum but that
takes forever. Thanks,

I have linked a cell from another sheet. If the original cell is blank, 0
shows in the linked cell (text would be typed in source cell).
To handle this, I conditionally formatted the linked cell, so if it equals
zero, the font colour is the same as the background colour of the cell so you
can't see the zero
But the zero still prints even though it is not showing prior to printing

A cell can contain about 32000 characters, but Excel will display only
about a 1000 of them (depending on font and fontsize).

--...Merged cells not copied properly
With some frequency, we have noted that cells are unmerged when copied.
Generally speaking, we are copying a row and pasting it or inserting it in a
new location. However, the clone is not always a clone, because the merged
cells in the original are often unmerged either into smaller merged groups
or into individual cells.
Anyone have any idea what is going on here?
