I have a user using a shared workbook and gets an error
everytime she does this ONE specific change. She deletes
a line and then saves and gets a message that
says, "EXCEL.exe has generated errors and will be shutdown
by Windows... blah blah blah". If she makes anyother
type of changes it saves just fine. I also had another
user do the SAME change and that person also got that
error message. When the file is changed to "Not Shared"
then the line is deleted it saves fine also. The problem
is obviously with the file itself and that is shared out.

In excel 2000, I created an attendance worksheet for my
classes.(Alphabetized names down left vertical column. Dates across
top of horizontal row.) I added a different color to all cells in
every other row to make for easier reading of each student's name and
absences. Every other row stays with a white background.
My question: I wondered if it was possible to lock row colors while
allowing data to change on top of them. If a new student is added to
my class in alphabetical order, the alternating color pattern is often
lost. It is a pain to rechange row and cell colors.

comma-separated field in its own column?

I have a spreadsheet with five columns that I enter data to. I then
have a blank row at the bottom of these columns. Below the blank row I
have several formulas pertaining to each row. How do I add more data
to the columns and have the formulas adjust for these new rows without
highlighting rows and using the insert rows command to make room (empty
rows) where I can then add the additional data to the columns. Is
there a formula that would always leave one empty row even when new
data is entered in the columns?

So, this is probably really easy, but I just want to ask and see if I may be
missing something here. Some data on vendor numbers changed. Let’s say IBM
used to have a vendor number 12345 and now it’s vendor number is 56789. I
can identify IBM as IBM, but I really want to use the number, not the name.
Should I set up a table that ties the numbers together, so that Access knows
12345 = 56789? Or, should I do some kind of Update Query and change all
incidences of 12345 to be 56789? Or, is there some other, method, like a

> ...Prevent Hidden Column data from being copied/pasted?
A student came up with a question that I haven't been able
to figure out yet in a recent Excel class.
They are hiding a column and protecting the worksheet in
the correct manner. They want to allow some users to
access and enter information in some cells. They do not
want the users to be able to copy and paste the
information from the hidden column. The question is how
can this be prevented?
For example, Column B is hidden. When they copy a range
such as A1:C10 and paste it to another worksheet, they are
getting the "hidden" data in Column B in B1:B10.

does not pose a problem, but after a while, I'll have a huge number of

and how can I stop this? I noticed in the recorded macro, there was a

...Save as Excel from Master Project
I am trying to export from a master project with about 8 sub-
projects. When I try and export from the master to excel, it does not

How are you exporting?
Data lives in the sub-projects, not the master. However, try expanding all
sub-projects and try again

available in the master.
