formatting dates by year #2
I would like to know if there is a way to format dates so
that they are formatted by year only. For example, if I
click on Format -> Cells, there are a bunch of options,
but none of them list to show the year only, just
mm/dd/yy or mm/yy, etc. I am trying to create a chart so
that only the year shows up. Also, I have tried doing
Custom->and "yyyy" in type, but only 1 specific year
shows up (i.e. 1905) for all the values. I would like to
keep my values.

As Frank said, that's the maximum cols
But maybe you could try transposing your table / data ?
(Excel has a lot more rows than columns)
If so, try: http://tinyurl.com/2nmyy

Is there a way to specify a relative path to an XML data file imported into
Excel 2003? I am writing a web app that generates report data as XML for the
user to download to their local machine. This data is to be consumed by an
Excel reporting spreadsheet, which contains display-formatted tables and
charts that are mapped to various data fields in an XML Map, which is in turn
linked to the xml data file they will download.
The idea is the user only needs to download the data for updates, not the
whole spreadsheet. However, since I cannot predict the path where the user

I have a formula that derives the answer from a figure with a decimal. I
don't want to use the figures after the decimal. Is there a way to just use
the whole number and omit the numbers after the decimal without having to
manually key in all these numbers manually?
You can use the INT function. This 'rounds down' any number to th
nearest integer, e.g. if A1=2.567, a formula in B2 of =INT(A1) return

I have a work book that is linked to another and vise versa.
Workbook A is where the input of data is made;
Workbook B has a link to the input from workbook A;

Hello, can you help me please
Cell B1 contains a complex mathematical formula which requires (in several
places) a number from cell A1.
Cell A1 can contain any integer number, but it is usually the same (30).
I would like to be able to leave cell A1 empty, and only enter a number when
it is not 30 ,
ie the default value of A1 is 30, unless specified.
How do I go about this ?
Should I look at conditional formatting, or put lots of IF functions into an
already complex formula?
Thank as always

Note While RPC over HTTP does not require Secure Sockets Layer, you must

Can anyone tell me a little about goal seek?
basically it's used to change an input variable so that the result of the
formula equals what you want it to ...
say i have the following
A B C
1 10 20 =A1+B1
now C1 will give me 30, but if i want to know what B1 will need to be if i
want C1 to show 50, i can use goal seek
Set C1 to value of 50 by changing B1

The 11.5.5 autoupdate worked fine.
The 12.1.9 autoupdate downloads (apparently), but then it goes right
back to showing that the 12.1.9 update is available -- the updater
itself never actually launches.
Busy servers, maybe -- and the download isn't ever actually completing?
Or bad updater on the update server for 12.1.9?
The manual download from Mactopia of 12.1.9 installed properly -- this
is just the auto-update that's not working now.
You're right, the auto-update fail. It should be pulled or a message sent instructing to update by downloading directly...Contact oddity and why are there 2 Contact Lists?
