Use of '=AND( COUNTIF(A:A, B1))' to check if a cell is in a column or range
Hello. Can someone please help, I'm using Excel 2003 and I wondered if this is an efficient way of checking whether an item is is a column or part of a column of (length 5000 rows) or not: - =AND( COUNTIF(A:A, B1) ) It seems like an odd use of the AND function as it only has one parameter but it returns a TRUE or FALSE as you would expect. I don't want to count the number of occurences, I just want to know if the value is present in the column but I can't seem to find an alternative to COUNTIF. The IF and FIND commands don't seem to apply here. Thanks for any help given. H...

Select item from dropdown list, item code is displayed in cell
I need help with a spreadsheet problem. I created a timesheet for users to track their hours with an in-cell drop down for some of the values. Currently, an user is able to use the in-cell dropdown to select a time off code and the result is displayed in the cell. However, I would like to have the user to see the full-name on the in-cell dropdown, but have the abbreviated code display in the cell when selected.

Updating linked cells within a workbook, from worksheet to workshe
(Excel 2002) I have a 5G Excel workbook with around 40 worksheets in it. Many of the sheets contain cells that refer to values in other sheets. I recently found that some of the values were incorrect (I believe they were just not updated). When I double clicked on the cell, gained access to the formula and then hit enter, the cell updated. I'm wondering 2 things - 1) Under what circumstances will cells NOT automatically update? I thought they always updated automatically as long as you're working within the same workbook. 2) Is there a way that I can update all cells at o...

How do I convert last name, first name in cells to first name las.

How to get notified when user inserts cells, rows, or columns in W
I'm making a client to Excel that keeps references to cells on worksheets. These references must be updated if the user inserts cells to the left or above the referenced cells. I have not been able to find this information, neither in the Range that accompanies the Change notification nor in any of the Worksheet, Workbook, or Application properties. Can anybody help me? Using the Worksheet_Change event, you could probably evaluate the row and column values of the target cell against the criteria cell: If Target <> (Reference Cell) Then If Target.Row <=( Refere...

Formula works in some cells, doesn't in other

no cells, grey screen, all tabs greyed out

HLookup, multiple tables and range names in other cells

When I filter data, sometimes I do not get row count retrived
When you are using auto filter on a worksheet and then you pick a valu to filter, you get the list of rows that satisfy that criteria. Also in the status bar, you get the number of rows retrived as a result o this filter. Example you will get "3 of 25 rows found" or somethin like that. Sometimes I do not get that message, I just get a messag called filter mode. Why does this happen and how can I correct this?

Specifying source campaign in Opp., not counting as campaign respo
General usage question regarding campaigns. If we create a campaign, then specify that campaign as the source campaign for an opportunity, that opportunity/account is not then listed as a response to that campaign. So when we run a Campaign Performance report, no responses are listed. Do you have to use the normal method of entering a response within the campaign? I'd think that if you can associate a campaign within the opportunity, that linkage would reflect in a Campaign Performance report. Thanks!! ...
