  • 1. Unique Pivot Table Count
    I have a few thousand records. Two of my fields are a unique ID (unique to each row) and customer ID (unique to each customer). Within one pivot table (including some filters), I have 194 records I want to be able to show within this same pivot table, not a count of 194 records, but the count of customers (which could be say 160).
  • 2. Widen merged columns while selected.
    I would like to find out how to change the width of a merged cell or column while it is selected and then return it back when another cell is selected. This is the code I have no but does not work on merged areas. I am using the DV dropdown list and can not read the text in the list becuse the cell is too narrow. I can't widen the cell because it is a state form and has to be in this format.... I am all ears if you can help. Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range) Dim myColumns As Variant Dim myWidthSelected As Variant Dim myWidthNormal As Variant Dim iCtr As Long myColumns = Array("a", "b") myWidthSelected = Array(10, 10) myWidthNormal = Array(1.43, 1.43) If Target.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub For iCtr = LBound(myColumns) To UBound(myColumns) If Intersect(Target, _ Me.Cells(1, myColumns(iCtr)).EntireColumn) Is Nothing Then Me.Cells(1, myColumns(iCtr)).EntireColumn.ColumnWidth _ = myWidthNormal(iCtr) Else Me.Cells(1, myColumns(iCtr)).EntireColumn.ColumnWidth _ = myWidthSelected(iCtr) End If Next iCtr End Sub

automatic dates in a column

Postby gsbbr » Thu, 08 Jan 2004 02:29:23 GMT

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

sorts by the the year.  The format is mm/dd/yyyy.  When I try to change the
