```Another response to try out, as posted just
to your earlier post in .worksheet.functions
(as Don has advised, please do not multi-post ..)

------
Another play to try ..

A sample construct is available at:
http://www.savefile.com/files/9864468
Calculating return in a range_kman_wks.xls

Assuming the data as posted is in cols A and B, row1 down
Put in C1: =IF(A1="","",COUNTIF(\$A\$1:A1,A1))
Put in C2: =IF(A2="","",IF(A2=A1,"",COUNTIF(\$A\$1:A2,A2)))

Put in D1: =IF(C1="","",A1)
Copy D1 down to D2

Put in E2, array-enter the formula (i.e. press CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER):
=IF(A2="","",IF(A2=A1,"",B2-INDEX(B:B,MATCH(1,(\$C\$1:C2=MAX(IF(\$D\$1:D2=A1,\$C\$
1:C2)))*(\$A\$1:A2=A1),0))))

Select C2:E2, copy down as far as required
Col E should return the desired results

Formula above is a little superfluous (clean-up overlooked earlier, sorry)
Simply put in C1: =IF(A1="","",1)

Adding a calculated ROW to a pivot table
Does anybody know how to add a calculated ROW to a pivot table? I have a pivot table that is returning totals at the bottom, as it should, but I *also* need it to return that total as a percentage of grand total, directly beneath the total. I've always done this free-form in the cells below a pivot table before, but the size of this pivot is dynamic so that's not an option. Also--I'm using the pivot in Access, not Excel directly.

Calendar Formatting Date Range problem
Hi, I am trying to make a monthly calendar that our administrator can update easily with new dates, and mail out. I've formatted the calendar and it looks great as it is right now for the month of April. However, when I choose "change date range" it reverts back to the original formatting and I have to start all over. I realize this is because I used a "design object". However, if I don't use a design object, then I can't change the date ranges. How do I change the date range on my calendar without losing all the formatting changes I made? Thanks T...

Getting row indexes on Range
(I refer to C# code, but answers in VB are welcome) I have a Range in Excel, which includes several cells (the cells the user selected in the Excel sheet). The range might include the following cells A2, B7, G4. This means that the cells might not be connected. If I look at myRange.Cells.Count, it will return 3. If I look at myRange.Row, it will return 2 (if A2 was the first selected row by the user). Now, I need to get the row numbers of all selected rows, so in the above range, I need an int[] of {2, 7, 4}. But I can't see any solution to go through the Cells and get t...

Hi, using MS Access 2003, is it possible to allow a user to drag to select a range of dates and, if 'yes', how do you store the selected date range? Many thanks, Jonathan Not that I know of.

YTD calculation
I run spreadsheets with monthly columns for actual, budget, and variance. I have final YTD columns. I currently go in and add the latest month to get this total. It would be simpler if I could have a YTD cell with a value like 3 for March. If I then had text in column 1 it would sum 2,5 and 8 for actual, 3,6 and 9 for budget and 4,7 and 10 for variance. Changing just the YTD cell value to 4 for April would change this calculation. Anyone have a suggestion? Thanks.

Automatic Dynamic Chart Ranges
Hi: I have an XY plot that refers to a set range of values on my worksheet In this case, it is 8 rows long. I chose 8 rows because that is th maximum number of data points that I will ever need. I have set up th chart values so that they are dynamically calculated based on VLOOKUP from other data. Sometimes there are only 2 data points, sometimes or 6. The problem is that no matter how I set up the formulas, Exce does not like the cells without values in them being included in th chart series (I have hardwired it to include all 8 rows).

Calculating dates & creating reports
I need to design a database that will calculate due dates for evaluations. It will have 5 dates. 4 are calculated. These dates need to be on a form along with the employee's name and other vital info. The user should be able to enter that Start Date and have all the other dates calculate automatically. There are approximately 55 employees! The first date (Start Date) is entered by the user. Example: User enters Start Date: 2/01/07. #2 Next Date is 91 days from 2/1/07, which calculates to 5/03/07. #3 Six Month Date is 182 days from Start Date, which calculates to 8/02...

Excel macro for copying range to another worksheet
On a monthly basis, I would like to copy the completed range (varies from month to month) of a database (Sheet1) to a master list (Sheet3). Once the data has been copied I intend to manually delete the entries of Sheet1 and start anew for the new month =96 for eventual transfer to Sheet3. The idea is to copy each month=92s data at the bottom of the previous months=92 (Sheet3). I followed Excel=92s record macro command but the macro I ended up with is not capable of placing the new data at the bottom of the existing one; it simply keeps overwriting the previous entry.

Named Ranges
Hi! I created several worksheets that contained huge lists, so I created a dynamic named range. Now that the name has been inserted in my array formulas, my Macro runs very slowly. The Macro unprotects one of my sheets, sorts the data in a table, hides the blank rows and the protects the sheet again. There are no related named range formulas in that worksheet, so I'm not sure why it would be affected. The Macro ran quickly when I had a defined range of data. Would giving a named range like 'Date' and having text in my workbook with 'Date' create conflicts? Could this...
