  • 1. Pivot Tables and blanks
    I cannot figure out why in my pivot table, it sums all the appropriate data, but does not return a count of "blanks". This is a critical piece of managing the data. Any suggestions.
  • 2. too many rows in csv file
    I have a .csv file that consists of thousands of lines (6000 pages when opened in MS Word). How can I get that data into excel? I have seen some knowledge bases do it with a macro but that macro seems to work only with text files and ignores the fact that my data is a .csv so I get loads of rows with all my column data all in column A as text with commas!!! Please help me - my brain is hurting!
  • 3. How to paste objects in a protected sheet
    Hello, I am trying to find a way to past an object I have captured as a .png file on a protected sheet. I have protected the sheet so as to be able to navigate by tab or arrow only to cells I have unlocked. On the sheet, I have a group of cells with the caption "Past object here" This is were I past the image I have captured. Trouble is, I can only paste on an unprotected sheet! Is there some way to get arround this while leaving the sheet protected? Perhaps some way to display the contents of another sheet where I past images to be displayed on the protected sheet? I appreciate any help with this. :-)
  • 4. XL 2003 & Sumproduct Question
    Hi, As a subset of my problem, I am trying to figure out what is wrong my sumproduct formula. I am sure that it is something simple. I have the following cells: A1=8; B1=16 A2:B3 = 0 In cell A5, I want the sum of Col A when Col A is less than Col B. I have... =sumproduct(a1:a3<b1:b3, a1:a3) When I use this equation, I get 0. I was expecting 8. When I select and evaluate A1:A3<B1:B3, I get {true; false; false}. When I select and evaluate a1:a3, I get {8;0;0} What am I doing wrong that I am not getting 8 for my answer? Thank you. Kevin

automatic dates in a column

I know this is an elementary question, but I do not have a manual, and
the "Help" doesn't open in Excel.  I've used Excel for several years,
made graphs, etc., but I still don't know how to do the following.

The first column needs to be consecutive dates, e.g., 1/1/04, 1/2/04,
1/3/04, 1/4/04, etc.  I have been entering each date in manually, but I
know there must be a simple way for Excel to do this for me.  I have to
enter dates for the entire year.

Can anyone help?  Thanks for your patience.

Put the date in the first cell, select the cell again, move the cursor to
the lower right corner of the cell,
copy it down by left clicking and holding down the mouse button while
dragging downwards

4.Separating dates from one column to Month, Date, Year columns

I'm looking for a way to take a list of dates that are being cut and pasted 
from an Access Database into excel and separate it so I can sort by Month, 
Day, Year.  The data seems to be recognized in Excel as a date because it 
sorts by the the year.  The format is mm/dd/yyyy.  When I try to change the 
format to anything else, it won't allow the change. column based on existing date column

If your end date is in A1, then in B1 use:
