Calculations using empty cells
I have a spreadsheet with three columns: Current balance, withdrawals, and
deposits. Current balance is determined by subtracting withdrawals and
adding deposits to the balance in the line above.
Suddenly I have started getting a cell entry
in the current balance cell.
A typical entry in the cell is for G43 would be:
=G42-E43+F43 and the sudden new result is #VALUE.
All three columns have cells formatted as numbers.

...conditional formatting of row based on cell
I want to apply conditional formatting to a whole row
based on the contents of one cell in that row.
For example, if cell L2 contains the word 'sport', i want
the whole of row 2 to be shaded.
I'm guessing this is pretty simple, but seem to be having
a bit of a mental blockage.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks :)

I'm using VBA code in Excel 2007. I am having a strange problem. The
cells have content. Some of them, but not all of them, are selected
from Data Validation lists (drawn from a named range). However, when
I try to access their values in VBA, it says they are empty!''
For example, the simple code:
Debug.Print "Cell value is: " & ActiveSheet.Cells(2, 7).Value
results in the output:
Cell value is:
I even tried the following code, to make sure it was not a problem

I need to refer to the sheet name in a formula and can't figure out how to do it.
I can't find a Function which will do this. I did discover ActiveSheet.Name but
I have been unsuccessful in getting it work in a function.
Specifically I have sheets named "1.a" , "1.b" , "1.c" . . . "99.a" , "99.b" , "99.c"
and need to get these names into cell C3 of each sheet. The sheets may not be
in order and there may be missing sheets.
Thanks in advance for any help.

Usually when using the filter function, the total records

changed? I do notice this happens frequently with files
created by exporting from Access, but not always. It
also happens with other files, but I can't find a common
Hi To...Last Cell
I was wondering if you could help me with my problem.
If you have data in your worksheet and you say delete all the data in the
last row, when you say F5 (Goto) "Special" and select "Last Cell" then it
will always go to the data row that you have just deleted. There seems no
way to get the "Last Cell" to update to where the last data is. Does anyone
know to resolve this issue please.
Thanks in advance.

picked up. If I use the "Wrap Text" property it only shows the sentence in
that cell. If I don't use it I get the  (brackets) in place of the carriage
Maybe you could merge those cells (A1:A3 or did you really mean A1:C1?)
But be aware that merging cells causes trouble with sorting, pasting, and lots
of other stuff.

I have a worksheet (Sheet1) where column A consists of dates (in date
order). I need to look at this column from another sheet (Sheet2) in the
same workbook and return the number of unique dates in this column. For
example, on Sheet1 cell A1 has the heading Date, A2 is 10/01/04, A3 is
10/01/04, A4 is 10/01/04 and A5 is 10/05/04. From cell A1 on Sheet2 I need
to look at the range A2:A5 on Sheet1 and return the number 2 (the number of
unique dates in the range).
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am trying to link multiple cells to one particular cell and can't seem to
do it. I want the multiple cells not just to have the same information but
be connected to the same cell. I want multiple cells to take the information
from ex. cell D4. So everytime i change cell D4 every cell that is linked to
it changes. Do I have to input =D4 into every single cell that I want to
link or is there an easy way to mass link?
enter =$D$4 in one cell and copy it to the rest. The $ keeps the address
from changing relatively.
Are the cells on the same worksheet?

Hi, I'd like to know if there's a simple way to unlock or lock cells.
I'm not sure if "Lock" is the correct term here. For example, if you
have a formula that has C$14. Is there an easy way to unlock (remove
the "$") from the formula or to ad it without manually doing it?
Thanks for your help!
You can use a macro to change the reference style (absolute vs relative), but
you can also do it manually.
Select the portion of the formula (just a single cell reference or the entire
formula if you want) and hit the F4 key to cycle through all 4 options.

Is there another way to do this? I really need help.
Lisak- There are a couple of approaches to do this; I'll give you the one I

The sumproduct conditions evaluate to true or false. You have to force them
back to a numeric format. Some folks do that with a leading double negative

On Sheet1, I have a data set (C1:C100) based on the input of cell A1.

You've got a reference to the cell but not the property of the cell object.
So if you want to set the cell's formula you need to use that property.
Also, as you're adding a string you need to wrap it up in quotes (note two
double quotes in a row get evaluated as a single set of quotes).
Have a go with the following:
