linked sheets for compilation database

I've managed to create a schedule for my construction projects with the
whole gantt chart and it has worked out great, I used a tutorial I
found on the web.

Only now my boss wants to see a gantt chart that compiles all the jobs
into one chart so we can see scheduling confilict or whatever.

So I'm wondering if this is easily accomplished:

Can I create single job schedules say three projects:

-Smith Project
-Jones Project
-Frank Project

Then import them into the compilation schedule so I will have 
(for example)

Smith 6/15-6/30
Jones 6/20-6/29
Frank 6/12-6/25

Smith 7/1-8/1
Jones 8/1-9/1
Frank 9/1-10/1

And then on and on and on.

The problem I think I'm having is each project category would almost
have to be a sort of heading so that if I have one job or fifteen jobs
they are all relative?

Anyone have any thoughts?

Thanks for your input.

Excel/Word startup: 'Compile error in hidden module: AutoExec' ??
Office 2003 factory-installed by Dell. Opening a new file with Excel (or Word) yields a Visual Basic error message: 'Compile error in hidden network: AutoExec' and then the PC hourglass runs. I used the Office 2003 Installation CD provided with the new laptop to repair Office. It ran quite a while. I then updated Office from the MS website to ensure I had the latest. This did not solve the problem and Dell disavows my existence. I'm wondering if it might be an operating system interaction? I am loath to re-install the XP operating system. Any thoughts?

Links in Excel #5
I've got several spreadsheets that link to one 'master' spreadsheet. They're all kept on our work X: drive, which is the shared drive for the whole organisation. However, the automatic links have a problem, in that every time I open the master spreadsheet that contains the links, I have to manually find each linked spreadsheet, it doesn't automatically update. Now, I can't see anything wrong with the source file descriptions and I can't think of what else it could be. Does anyone have any advice or tips? Any help would be greatly appreciated. thankyou in advan...

Copy & pasted links won't highlight/activate
Using Outlook 2003. While copying & pasting links into an e-mail, the links won't highlight/activate like they used to.

Copy column from one sheet to another
I'm keeping grades in multiple worksheets in the same workbook. I'd like to copy the column showing the total of the weekly grades (using the SUM formula) on worksheet 2 to the column on worksheet 1 for that assignment (worksheet 1 reflects all the assignments which is why I just need the sum). When I simply do a copy and paste, I get #REF in the 'weekly' column and in the 'total' and 'grade' columns (total is the total of all assignments, grade is a series of if, then statements so I end up with A, B, C etc). How do I do this to just get the number and...

Comments on Manual Calculation on certain sheets.
I have a sheet in a workbook with array functions that slows down performance with calculation on automatic (which I need for the other sheets). Would it not have been useful to be able to set a single sheet to Manual and update when needed in the same way Pivot Tables work? One way to work around this is to save the Array Formula sheet in another workbook. I have browsed some of the posts on Excel's way of handling Automatic/Manual recalculation and it seems as if there is room for improvement or are there important reasons that I am not aware of? Any comments. Laurence Lombard Hi ...

Link for downloading online statements not visible Mon 2k3
On my financial institution's(TCF Bank) website, there are instructions for downloading online statements that refer to a link on the BALANCES page for MS Money. The problem is that the link apparently doesn't show up in my version (MS Money 2003 ver. 11). I spent some time on the phone with TCF's customer support and frustratingly tried to argue that there was no link to click on to download my statement both in Money and in Internet Explorer. Therefore I thought it was a problem with their website. However, they say that they recently updated their system to automat...

Open excel sheet twice at same time?
Hi, Probably a question asked all the time, but I often have trouble opening a file after making a desktop shortcut to an excel file. When opening, it gives an error message about opening a file with the same name at the same time (even though I'm not). The error message continues by saying that it doesn't matter if the files are in different folders and suggests renaming one of the files. Any ideas? Thanks. Robert No reason I can think of that would cause Excel to load the file twice irrespective of launching it from a shortcut. Couple of things to check: - The file isn'...
