Percent increase in excel #2
How could I do a percent increase when I have two tables with money values,
one from last year and one from this year?
A1: <last year's value>
B1: <this year's value>
Format C1 as a percentage.

So many horror stories about shared excel workbooks crashing or losing data. I would like to have a shared excel workbook for our budget, shared among 30 people, who would enter in their budgets for specific departments. Are there users that have sucessfully utilized shared workbooks with 20-30 users? If so, what tips/secrets do you have to avoid the pitfalls of other sites, who have problems???

When I paste an excel chart into powerpoint, it's not pasting
proportionally. I've added text boxes to the chart (in Excel). Also, the
original chart is a full page in Excel, however when I paste it into
Powerpoint, it's being reduced in size. when I enlarge it, the text boxes
(that I added) then overlap one another in powerpoint, where they didn't do
this in Excel. I just switched from '97 to 2003 and this wasn't a problem.
Perhaps I'll also post this to the powerpoint newsgroup, in case the problem
is there instead of excel.
I have so...continued: multiple selections in a list-box
There was a thread started on 9/15 about this (see below) where a list box
with multiple selections would be dropped into a text field separated by by
commas (or whatever you want).
The corrolary to this then is: now that I've got a text / memo item filled
with multiple values, how do I extract that back to the list-box if the form
is opened up later to that record.
Secondarily, is there a way to pull each of the values from the list box and
have it populate a different table that has the record number and choice.
For example, the main form (tbl_main) has you choose three or more....qfx file in excel
my bank for some reason will only allow me to download my statement in a qfx

If the bank does not have .text (.txt) or comma separated variables (.csv),
which would probably be listed as spreadsheet format, then
I would complain to the bank.

I have six numbers and letters in a cell on a spreadsheet and I am using the

Some of the cells are left blank.
Any help would be much appreciated.

Probably these are trailing white spaces

I'm pasting some text into a cell - it did come from a website, but
it's not a link or anything.
It's just plain text - why the need to access the network?
Maybe it's another cell, switch to formula view and see
if you see something else. Because the formula view may
not show everything, you might want to copy to another sheet
so you can adjust columns to see your formulas better without
affecting the column widths on the original.

for the serie, or is it a way to do this so it works for all chart types?
As you say only six basic colours are available. However each subsequent set

Does anyone know how I can replicate formulas (verbatim) between difference

The best procedure depends on how many you're trying to copy.
For one or two, you can select the *entire* formula in the formula bar,
right click and choose "Copy", then hit <Enter>.
Now you can navigate to wherever you wish, and Paste it as many times and/or
places you want.
For numerous formulas, *unformulate* them by replacing t...inserting text form field in a text box

Your subject line has the missing clue. There is no way to insert a

You can remove the text box and put the field into ordinary text, or
