Autofilter - showing # rows found (or NOT)

Hi all,

When I am using Excel's Autofilter, often the statusbar shows the number of
selected rows as part of the total number of rows.
Often, but not allways.

How is this, and what can I do about it ?

When your list has many formulas, or if a cell in the list is changed 
after a filter has been applied, the Status Bar may show "Filter Mode" 
instead of a count of the visible records. You can use the Subtotal 
function to count the visible rows.

The following MSKB article has information:

The AutoFilter status bar displays the "Filter Mode" message in Excel

And there are a couple of workarounds here:

Transposing data in columns into a single row?
Hi, Let us say we have data stored vertically in a column ($A2:$A6). Now is there a feature by which I can transpose that data into a single row; meaning get data in a row like A$2:E$2? --deostroll Copy then Paste Special>Transpose. Note: the transpose range cannot overlap the original range so select say B2 before transposing. Delete the original range after you're done.

Help: Formula put into entire row creates large file size

Automatic row height problem
I am using Excel 2000. I have merged cells together and have a line of text within this new cell that runs longer than the new width. When I, through the Format-Font menu, wrap the text, the height does not automatically adjust to fit two rows of text. (although the text does wrap) Double clicking on the row border does not reformat the height. I can reformat the height individually, but I would prefer this be done automatically, as this situation happens continuously through the document, and reformatting the height each time it happens would be quite cumbersome.
