Excel, how do I change the column headings from letters to number
I have a spreadsheet that has numbered columns as opposed to the standard
letters. How can I change this back to letters?
Go to the Tools menu, choose Options, then the General tab.
There, uncheck the R1C1 reference style setting.

I've got the following in a dataset:
19 30 1200 FI FI 20030906 36
19 30 1324 FI FI 20030906 36
and I want the following result:
19 30 1200, 1324 FI FI 20030906 26
Any guess on how to do this?
Not quite clear:
The data is arranged in columns, I assume
It looks as if both items in the same column are the same, you want just one
item, otherwise the one in the top row first, then the one from the bottom row.
But what about the last 36s that should yield 26? Typo?
Does the dataset have more columns or more rows or both? And how big is it?...Excel moving horizontal columns to vertical
I am trying to find a simple way of moving data in horizontal columns
(referencing the key in column 1) to vertical colums (still referenceing the
same key). This would mean automatically repeating the values in column one
for every entry in the moved columns.
I can do this through the pivot table, but this is a long drawn out process.
I'm not sure if this will work for you, but you can try this:
- Highlight & copy on the horizontal value you want to make vertical
- Now highlight the vertical area you want these value to got
- Right Click when highlighted & choose...moving payables data from open to history

of this herself within two hours, by simply turning off the posting to the GL

But, she is wondering if there is a quick and easy way to do this on the

How can I merge 2 cells without losing data from the other cell?
Not possible I'm afraid. Try placing the dat from both cells into one
and use "Center across selection" under Format>Cells>Alignment
Merge cells always end up causing grief. they are best avoided.

I am trying to get a feel for some probabilistic properties. For
example, I am trying to look at the statistics of the intervals between
randomly occurring pulses. I have no problem getting a column of
uniformly distributed pulse times, but they are unsorted, Every time I
recalculate with cmd-=, I get a new unsorted set of pulse times because
of the use of the RAND function.
Is there a way of taking this unsorted column and pasting it into
another colun that would be sorted without invoking a macro?

If you've fixed the number of digits using only number formats, the values remain
numeric, and they should chart just fine. This means selecting the range, going to
the Formatting menu and selecting Cells, and on the Number tab, selecting Number in
the category list, and setting a number of digits.
