Have you looked at any of the items returned when you use Google or Bing =
or some other search engine to look for "excel bingo cards" (without the =
quotes)?

You can get information about the RAND worksheet function using Excel's =
built-in Help.

Hi Tom:

A "NUM" error means "The number being input to this formula is not
acceptable".  Usually, because it's not a number at all...

See the Excel Help topic "Correct a #NUM! Error"

To get help with errors in here, you need to show us the formula you are
using, otherwise all we can say is "Sorry, don't know..."

Cheers

Yep:  None of the cells feeding values into the formula can be blank.

Change the formulas so they point to cells that contain valid values :-)

If I were you, I would go back to the original and look to see which cells
those formulas are supposed to be pointing to.  Given that you have a LARGE
within a Match within an Index, this is quite a complex formula.  You may
find that it helps to pull it to pieces and get each piece working, then
plug them all together.

Cheers

Please Help!!
I am having problems restoring a backup money file from my cdrw disc. I recieve the error that it can't open possibly because it is a read only file or you do not have permission to change it or your disk drive is write protected. I have never had this problem before. I have restored files from my cd backup 3 times before without a problem. Please help!!!! Restore the file to writable media - your hard drive. If you still can't open it, right-click on the file in its new location, choose Properties from the context menu, and remove the check from the 'read-only' box. -...

You wont believe this! SERVER DOWN
I was helping the operations/it director to get RPC over HTTP going on their exchange server for a company I use to be the sys admin for. The ops/it director was doing the add/remove programs portion to add rpc over http there, somehow in the process of doing this he managed to uninstall IIS -or- just NNTP and SMTP (I can't figure out which and he claims he did neither). Long story short, I've reinstalled NNTP and SMTP, reconfigured SMTP to the best recollection I have of the previous config and the server still refuses to send/receive email, even internally. All services are s...

Internet connection problem
Hi. I hope someone is able to cast some light on a problem. We have a home network (all computers running XP) some wired and some wireless. For about a month now we have intermittent connection problems in that any one computer (randomly) will not connect to internet. I think all of the computers have suffered from the problem. Rebooting the affected computer makes no difference but rebooting the router can sort it until the next time. Even my mobile phone occasionally cannot connect. In Firefox the message is just "server not found". Pinging an IP address results in a time...

I need help restoring Public Folders
Hi I've been having issues getting Public Folder replication going between 2 Exchange 2003 servers.

I screwed things up and managed to delete some of the public folders on my original server. I'm not 100% sure what I did but it is a mess and the only backup I have is the Exchange backup I created before doing any work. The public folders contain a number of Contact Lists and a very important Event Calendar. I have restored the public folders but when the restore c...

Help with Synchronizing a user folder with a Public Folder
Hi: Hoping that someone can offer a suggestion on this one. I'd like to be able to synchronize an email folder in a particular users' Outlook account with a public folder. The idea is to have email conversation threads in a particular folder (just one folder) visible to others in the group via the public folders. Ideally, it would be great if changes to the public folder are instantly mirrored in the users folder - but that requirement is not critical, the core requirement is to have the public folder mirror the user's folder (in real time). I know that I could accomplis...

Membership cards and discount cards
anyone know if RMS works with membership and discount cards? I would like to offer that to my customers and have them accrue rebates. Best, M Depends on the card and exactly what kind of membership program you want to offer. If you create membership cards with a barcode for the customer account number, and simply want to offer discount levels, you can get good functionality right out of RMS. If you want to offer rewards based on points, or use magnetic membership cards, it gets much more complicated and you're going to need an add-in. Talk to your RMS Reseller about your needs, ...

Excel Formula Help
I am setting up a basic excel spreadsheet and really have got no experience with excel. I want to do something real basic like if A2=laptop display $10 or if A2=desktop display $20 how do I do this? I think that if the list of options is more than a just a few, a =vlookup() function would work nicely. It may seem a little complex to start, but once you use it, you'll find tons of more reasons to use it.

Help Please in Summing
Hello. Sorry to ask such a simple question, but I need help on how to get a total of some cells. Here's the sample. If cell A1 is 05 and is true A3 is 10 and is true A5 is 15 and is False A7 is 10 and is True A9 is 05 and is False How can I make A11 show me the result by just adding those numbers that are TRUE and give me the sum ?

If so: =SUMIF(B1:B9,"=TRUE",A1:A9) But the assumption may be wrong and you'll need to provide more information. -- Regard...
