Vlookup with variable column reference
I am trying to link two workbooks with a vlookup that searches for the last
populated columns' entry in a range (see example below).
27/03 28/03 29/03 30/03 31/03
Data 6 4
Is there a way of doing this in a function? In a macro I would use the
Range().End(xltoleft) code but I cannot figure out how to do something
similar in a worksheet function. I basically want the lookup column to start
at day 31 and make its way backwards until it finds a value. Another issue is
that the seemingly blank cells contain formula - ie. not empty.
1 ...variable column names in a report
i have an application where the user can enter self selected column names
which then in turn are added to a table... application works fine. however,
when it comes to reporting, how do i go about adding those self entered

any help would be appreciated
Do you actually need this in a report or can the results be pushed to Excel

I've made this work many years ago but now can't remember
how. I have a job invoice to where the rate is
40.00/hour. This 40.00 is used in calculation to
determine the total amount of pay owed. (20 hours worked
* 40.00/hour). The boss requires that the hourly rate be
shown for each job on the invoice, so that means it is in
a column to where the amount is repeated all the way
down. All I want is for the contents of that particular
column NOT to show (show as blank), if no job has been
entered. In other words, if there is no data entered on

I would like to take one column of data and copy it across one row.,

If the column contains no more than 255 rows of data(256 if you are pasting
below row 256) you can copy it and select B1 and Paste

i often have to use filters to reduce a column of numbers to just it's

The filters are reliable, so there may be a problem with the data. For
example, a space at the end of a text string can cause two cells that
look the same to be extracted by the filter.
Perhaps you can give an example of what's left out, ...How do I stop expanding cells in excel

If the blank cells with a formula in them has the value of zero, use COUNTA
to count the cells and COUNTIF to count the zero values in each range, then
subtract the two.

General usage question regarding campaigns. If we create a campaign, then
specify that campaign as the source campaign for an opportunity, that
opportunity/account is not then listed as a response to that campaign. So
when we run a Campaign Performance report, no responses are listed.
Do you have to use the normal method of entering a response within the
campaign? I'd think that if you can associate a campaign within the
opportunity, that linkage would reflect in a Campaign Performance report.

In your table you "may" have IDfield, 1stName, 2ndName, Street Address,

Create a query based on the table. Bring all the fields in the query and

I have a Master file with 20 columns of data for each of approximately

There is a unique identifier in each file. Not all rows in the update

Excel doesn't support this directly. To get a checkbox you need to use VBA
Forms or OLE controls, create a bunch of checkboxes, then link them to the
cells. Check out View/Toolbars/Forms and View/Toolbars/Control Toolbox.

There are 2 places that you can change that setting.....
1)When you return data from MS Query the dialog where you select the
location for the data has a Properties button.
Click that button
UNcheck: Include Field Names.......click [OK]
Continue selecting the query destination
2)After the data has been pulled from Oracle
