My spreadsheet has both the rows and columns labeled with

How do I switch this back?

>...conditional summing of arrays
I would like to sumproduct 2 arrays up to the row where it first exceeds
a given number. For example assume 2 arrays are as follows : 1,2,3,4,5 &
2,3,4,5,6 the sumproduct is 2,8,20,40,70. So if my given number was say
30, the answer would be 4. if the number was say 80, the result would be
NA. Can anyone help me with this problem? Thank you and kind regards JV

I don't believe that you can export Format or Datatype changes. The only
things I would know to do or either share dictionaries, copy the dictionary
with the changes to the client, or manually make the changes on each client.
Please be aware that each option does have other ramifications to be aware of

I would like to prevent Excel from attempting to interpret the data type when

When importing a file ending in .txt, the Text Import Wizard lets me
interactively specify each field type individually. That works OK except
when I import files with many fields (100+), it is a burden to click on each
field individually and specify text. Can I make Text format the default when

I'm using Excel 2007, and trying to apply conditional formatting to the data

applied to cells with the original data (data source), and then applying the

changed data since it is linked, but will not incorporate any style
formatting. Any thought? Thanks.

want to insert a new text box and connect it, and I accept, the new text box
is the wrong size, and sometimes comes in with a black border rather than the
