I cannot enter data in my Excel 2000 spreadsheet
Good afternoon dear members of the microsoft.public.excel.misc newsgroup. I
need Your kindly help. I cannot enter data in my Excel 2000 document for one
or other reason. I just clic on any of the spreasheet cells and type for
word but it does not work.
Any idea ?
What else is going on? Are you using VBA code on the back
side? Are there any Excel alert boxes open behind your
main application window? Please provide more information.

Thanks for the previous help.
I now need some direction in setting code to automatically import data from
excel into Access97.
I have set up my queries for the import, and it works like a champ. Before I
can run that query, I have to manually import the excell data into a
specially named table. I would like a command that would allow the
importing of the excel data (.csv) into the specially named table, then
append that data into 3 seperate tables, which is done using my queries.
I would like this command to be placed in one of my "switchboard" menus, but

Is it possible or am I stuck with dd/mmm/yy format?
Good afternoon Malcolm Agingwell
Would the date in the format "31 January 2005" be of any use to you?
If so, set up a custom format of dd mmmm yyyy. Excel doesn't handl
ordinals (1st, 2nd, 3rd etc) on its own.

I am trying to convert multi tabs excel file into csv. Can I get all the tabs

If you combine all the data into one worksheet in a new workbook, then you could
save that workbook as your CSV file.
Ron de Bruin has some code at:
that might get you started.

...how do i find a true value between two different times e.g. 4:15
i would like to find the exact value between two different time in hours and
minutes e.g. 4:15 (4 hours 15 minutes) and not 4:42 (4.42 hours) for example.
Subtract them! An example: Enter 8:45 in A1 and 5:15 in A2. Enter the
formula =A1-A2 in A3 and, voila, the answer is 3:30. Excel will
automatically assign the time format to A3 if it has the General number

...Excel 2007 and large spreadsheets
I have a user that doesn't want to move to Excel 2007 from 2003 due to what
he describes as "Specifically, my analytical tasks often involve creating
very large spreadsheets (>100 MB) for data processing. I found that Excel
2007 tended to freeze up or calculate indefinitely when working with such
large spreadsheets, and therefore was unsatisfactory for my needs". I can't

Is it posible to use an excel spreadsheet to enter data into access?
The actual reason for using excel to enter the fields in access is that over

databases. They actually call excel a database about 1/2 of the time.

You need to do that with a Before_Print event macro. If you search the
