  • 1. Backup Excel Spreadsheet
    I want to backup spreadsheets as I go along... I found that if I use File | Save As | Tools | General Options | and check the box "Always Create a Backup"............. It creates a separate new backup everytime I make changes...the folder ends up full of them. Questions 1. Is there a way to have it just update the one backup? 2. What would the reason be for creating lots of separate backups. Comment Any other useful suggestions worth considering would be appreciated
  • 2. is this a "trend" application?
    How can I solve this. I have two simple columns of data in excel. (10 rows) These represent 10 data points. The left column is called INDEX and the right column is called DATAPOINT. For example, index 1 is .5, index 2 is .4, 3 is .37, 4 is .34, etc. all the way to index 10 which has a value of .20 int he 2nd column. 1 .5 2 .4 3 .37 4 .34 ... 10 .20 I now have another datapoint which is at index 20, say, a value of .1 So now I'm missing the datapoints between 11 and 19. I was hoping to use the built in trend values you can gather just by highlighting my string of values and dragging it down in excel, to reveal what excel thinks is the trend in the values between 11 & 19. However, it does not map properly to the 20th index. Is there any way I can incorporate the value I have found for the 20th index, somehow tie it to the other values I have for index 1-10, to map out the proper datapoint trends between them, thereby achieving reasonable values for index 11 to 19 ?
  • 3. how do i pull info from one worksheet to another?
    I have a spreadsheet with 98 rows of common problems found while doing physical surveys of commercial properties. Column 1 contains the item number (1 - 98). Not all 98 items are found in any one store. How do I create a report which will bring in the associated information to a blank sheet by typing in an item number in column 1 (ex. 1, 3, 7, 8, etc.)?

  • 4. Macro that returns a specific number of characters from a text str
    Hello, I need in Helps in developing a macro that will remove double quotes between characters ( i.e. "1234N") in a specific column within the spreadsheet. Using the MID Function does seem to take alot of time. Thus, I would like to come up with a macro that will do faster. Thanks,

OK... I need to know if there is a way I can strike through the text on
a row by highlighting the row with the defunkt information and
activating a macro.

Let's see if I can give an example.

Say I'm entering data in, row by row... Each row's data is SIMILAR but
not the same. 
Now let's say that apon review I notice that one of the row is
I need to be able to highlight the row (Presumably by selecting the
corresponding number on the left hand side {1,2,3 etc}) then I need to
run a macro (that will eventually be tied to a button) and then be done
the macro would turn the text .RED  and then strike through the
information. Is that even possible? if so... can you help me?!

Thanks a ton, Josh

You can select an entire row with Shift-Space too.  The following code will
make the entire row red (that the cell pointer is in).

Sub RedStrike()
    With Selection.EntireRow.Font
      .Strikethrough = True
      .ColorIndex = 3
      End With
End Sub

I did this by recording a macro, then taking out a bunch of stuff and
tweaking it a bit.  You may wish to assign a shortcut to run it quickly from
the keyboard.  Tools - Macro - Macros.  Select the macro, and click Options.
There's a place to put in a shortcut.  I used Shift-R.  It wound up
Ctrl-Shift-R.  The Excel shortcuts don't use Shift, AFAIK.

1.Error--"try selecting only entire rows, entire columns, or just groups of cells"

I've looked online for help and found the following.  I tried following the
directions, but it doesn't seem to do anything.  The original row shows 2
selected rows (even when I try to select only one to delete the other) and
when I follow these directions, it inserts 2 rows.  :
