  • 1. cell outside range
    Intermittently, a cell erroneously appears outside the range of cells in an active worksheet. This cell contains duplicate data from one of the other cells. I am not able to replicate the sequence of events that causes this cell outside the range of cells to magically appear. I wonder if anyone else has seen this problem. Thanks, Mrs. T

  • 3. Formatting Auto Shapes - Rectangle
    I have created something but cannot recreate it and cannot remember what I did differently. Clicked on Rectangle to form a perimeter around a few cells and wanted it to look 3-D, which I have done in the past with the shadow function, specifically shadow style 6. The rectangle I made transparent so that I can see the numbers underneath. Now when I try this, the shadow does not form correctly. Because its transparent I can see through it and see the shadow line behind it instead of it looking like a white box with a grey shadow. Hard to describe but can someone help? Thanks.
  • 4. Create view using data autofilter
    I use Excel quite a lot, and would like to expand my ability. I use the AutoFilter feature to look at particular data. Usually it involves filtering a few different columns. I would like to set-up some "Views" that define the conditions and values for several columns. I could then click on one thing and get the pre-defined sets of data. -- Arleigh Birchler

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
