```Try this:

=3DCODE(LOWER(A1))-96

Then copy down.

Hope this helps.

```One way:

= CODE(UPPER(A1)) - 64

another:

=MATCH(A1,{"a","b","c"})

How to change default printing parameters on Excel & ......
How to change the default printing parameters on Excel & keep them changed for future workbooks. Example: Normally I use Printing margins 0.25 on all directions, but default printing margins are 0.75. I want to change them to set 0.25 as DEFAULT. If you start a new workbook and change the page layout (for all the sheets), you can save it into your XLStart folder as Book.xlt. Excel will use that as the basis for new workbooks. You can change a lot of settings that way--including orientation, headers/footers.... Amjad wrote: > > How to change the default printing parameters ...

How to change a bar to line in a combo chart?
I am currently using Excel & PPt 2000 and cannot figure out how to control which rows of data are displayed as a bar or line in a combunation chart. In PPt it combo bar/line chart defaults to the last row only as a line and in Excel it seems to have half as a bar/ half as a line. Any suggestions? In the chart, select the series you want changed. Then, select Chart | Chart Type... and pick the desired type+subtype. When a single series is selected the chart type choice applies only to that one series. -- Regards, Tushar Mehta www.tushar-mehta.com Excel, PowerPoint, and VBA add-...

Remove Data Format Change
I have a program that puts a database's data into an excel spreadsheet. The problem is that Excel is constantly changing the numbers to dates, which corrupts the data. I know I can switch the column data type to Text and that will fix it, but the problem is that when the data is written to the spreadsheet it overwrites that column data type and Excel does the formatting that changes my data. How can I turn this off so Excel stops trying to recognize data types and change their format? Please help because this is causing major problems for us. Thanks, ACFalcon >>I have a ...

Line Graph: Changing X/Y Axis'
Can somebody please help to recommend a tutorial or simple directions on creating a chart in Office 2007 that will show how to create a simple line chart (2-D is fine) that gives flexibility in flipping the x and y axis?

In a Line chart the x axis has category values and if flipped this would give category values to the y axis which must have numeric values. But you can readily flip an XY chart.

Displaying daily quote changes
I am a new user to MS Money who recently migrated from Quicken. I can't seem to find a way that will give me daily quote changes in my portfolio. This is Jan. 26, 2008 and it does give me the change but its not a trading day. It also has the same data as the 1-25-08 which it should. If I try to go back to January 22, it just shows the price for the 22 but not the change. Right click in a blank area within the column headers and then click "customize current view". This should show all the fields that can be added, including the "daily change". Frank "ygold...

Publisher 03, how do I apply a change to all pages in a calendar?
I created a 12-page calendar - a full page per month. How can I change a font and have it apply to all 12 pages? Similarly, how can I add a graphic and have it show on all pages? Thanks! Click the font scheme, it should be on the calendar task bar, if not open it from the format menu. Select a font scheme or create one of your own. The graphic is simple enough, insert it on the first page, paste it on the next 11. It should paste exactly where it was placed on page one. -- Mary Sauer MSFT MVP http://office.microsoft.com/ http://msauer.mvps.org/ news://msnews.microsoft.com "EddieP...

order number and invoice sequences
When we enter an order in great plains, the order is assigned a number. A packing slip is then generated with the same number. Then when transferred to an invoice for billing the system assigns an invoice number that is not the same. How do we maintain the same number through out the process? Ken, Out of the box, there isn't a way to do this. When you transfer a document from one to the other- the document number to be used is just pulled from the next invoice number which most likely won't match your order. So what you are looking at is that you enter an order with perhaps OR...
