How can I insert a cell reference in a footer (eg for variable foo #2
Any ideas on how to do this?
I'm trying to create a template with the doc reference number in the footer
However, I'm trying to avoid users having to edit the footer (because this
just wont get done).
Private Sub Workbook_BeforePrint(Cancel As Boolean)
.PageSetup.LeftFooter = .Range("A1").Text
This code should go in the ThisWorkbook code module.

Is is possible when you have a drop down menu, to have excel short list the
menu as you type in more charcaters of the text. For example a have a list
of several hundred customers. I start inputting the first few letters of the
customers name, I would like that list of several hundred to be shortened to
only include thaise customers that begin with the letters I have typed in.
Think this previous post by Debra Dalgleish would be of help:

I am currently using Excel XP. I have a scatter chart and would only like to
plot non zero values. These are not null values. Is there a chart setting I
can do to skip plotting zero values or do I need to somehow filter/sort the
data first and then plot?
Hey George -
If there are true zeros in the data, perhaps the easiest way to exclude them from
the chart is to use an autofilter on the data that hides the rows with zeros.
Alternatively, you could insert a column to hide the zeros. Say the range with zeros
is in B1:B10. Select C1:C10, and enter this formula into C1:

Is there a way to format multiple pivot table fields at

I think the solution for you is to open the Pivot Table

format for all results for that particular field.
One limitation that I haven't found a way around is
getting a preferred column size to "stick" and not reset
after a table refresh.

That will work if cell A1 has a formula in it.
If negative numbers are just typed in, you can use conditional formatting.
Highlight the range of cells you want to format.

Enter cell value is less than 0.

I am trying to use the end of a column as a divisor and need to convert what
i guess is text into an actual cell reference if possible.
In column A, say there are 13 data points ending at cell A13.
I then try to turn that into a cell reference with the formula
="A"&TEXT(COUNTA(A1:A13,),"0") I put this formula in B1
the output of this is then A13
what i need this to do, is be able to divide any cell by A13.
The reason I am going through all this trouble is that there are many
columns and each has a different # of data points.
I hope this is somewhat clear. Thanks ...Cell QA for Bob Phillips
