#### Counting Text Occurances - HELP PLEASE

```I have numerous (approx. 30) 2 letter codes used to identify different type
of work events.  Some are "soft" events, some are "hard" events.  I want to
count how many times each type of event occurs in a range.

Soft = DO, VC, SK, JD, CP, etc.
Hard = FT, TH, WK, MT, etc.

My data is entered across columns by date and down rows by employee.  Does
anyone know how to sum the "soft" and "hard" events by row / employee?
Thanks.

```Hi,

Assume that your first employee data is in row 21 (Let's say the workevents
are in D21:I21).  In C26:C31, enter the soft codes and in D26:D29, enter the
hard codes.  In cell J21, enter the following formula to count the soft
codes

=SUMPRODUCT(1*(ISNUMBER(MATCH(\$D21:\$I21,\$C\$26:\$C\$30,0))))

For hard codes

=SUMPRODUCT(1*(ISNUMBER(MATCH(\$D\$21:\$I\$21,\$D\$26:\$D\$30,0))))

Hope this helps

Help with formula #18
Hi All: I am WAY over my head here, and you all have always been great help, so hopefully someone can help with this. I had someone write this for me to use as an index at the top of a spread sheet. It works beautifully . The problem is I would like to move this index to sheet 2 of the same spreadsheet and when I copy and paste it, it does'nt work.

Help needed with Money 2003 files
Hi there, I've been using money 2003 for years even when upgrading to new PC's as I had the original disk. I've just had to rebuild my hard drive and now cannot find the disk anywhere so cannot install Money. As you cannot now buy Money, I've tried downloading the trial version of Money so that I can access all the account details/balances but it says that they're not compatible with earlier versions of money. Is there anything that I can do to get these files open or have I lost all my records for the last 6 years? I'd really appreciate your assistance. Jayne EggHead...

I am experiencing the 80040e19 error when expanding public folders in Exchange System Manager, Exchange 2000. I have exhausted all suggested MS articles and *still* have not resolved the issue. No evidence of URLScan or iislockdown being run on the server. Strange thing is is that when I disable the newly installed NIC through device manager the public folders can be expanded perfectly. On enabling the NIC, same error. The server is the PDC, Exchange and Intranet server, running IIS on port 80 for local intranet site and the admin website on port 7715.

populating from sheets -- and PLEASE don't tell me I need VB!
Stupid newbie question, Excel 2003: I have a 2 sheet document. SOME of the info from Sheet 1 needs to appear on Sheet 2. For example, Sheet 1 Column G values need to be populated to Sheet 2 as Column B, Column H needs to be Column D, etc. Is there any way to automate this without having to write a VB script? I know a macro could kind of do it, but I don't think it could take all the parameters, since Sheet 1 is constanly being altered (i.e., new values, etc.). Oh, and all rows are relational so that G3 value from Sheet 1 when it goes to Sheet 2 B17 also has to have H3 from Shee...

Hello, Our new warehouse manager entered, received and committed a PO from the wrong vendor - over 100 items! Does anyone know a way to either reverse the PO or change the vendor? Please help!!!! Thank you! diana Diana, You can reverse the PO by opening it again in receiving mode. Use the Quick Scan button and add an item to the PO (any item). This will 'unlock' or re-open the PO. You can now delete the item you just added back off. Next you would enter the quantity 'Received to Date' of each item into the 'Quantity Received' column as a negative. Fo...

Remove Duplicate
I used OCR software to read the Names and addresses off ~500k images. For each image we received ID and Account Number combinations that correspond to a Name and Address. Within the data set there are several examples of each ID, Account, Name and Address combination. We are interested in removing the duplicates and only having the distinct records. The software is not 100% accurate so the Names and Addresses can be different from result to result for the same ID/Account. My thought was to use a majority voting approach. Below is a link to an example of the results. ...

Need help with setting IFrame script

I am using the DirectionsFind url, though I may switch to MapQuest if I can find the parameter list. Which I use, however, is a moot point if I can't figure out how to make it work in an IFrame. I have written and debugged the JavaScript that concatenates the http command for generating the map and directions from one point to the next. I know the command works because I've pasted the results into my browser and it brings up the corre...

oblique text
Is there a way to make a text oblique, using CHARFORMAT? I don't think there is... you could use CFE_ITALIC to make it italics, but if you want to do anything fancier you'll likely have to do it graphically or do your own font. That's just what I know though. Someone else may have a better idea.

Converting TOC to Text
I cut and paste text from a table of contents into a Word 2003 document. It is very lengthy and I'd rather not re-type the whole long list, since it would take a very long time.

text and number separation
