  • 1. Fixed decimal places in Excel
    I am designing an Excel spreadsheet as a template for data entry. I would like the cell to only allow two decimal places to be entered. For example, if a person entered 1.234, I would like the value to be rejected. For my purposes, this would not be best accomplished through the fixed decimal option as the user can still enter this value and have it accepted. I have Excel 2003.
  • 2. ' character in excel
    In older versions of excel the ' character could be used as the first character in a cell to mke the following character repeat itself throughout the cell. This command no loner works. What command was used to replace it?
  • 3. Auto Update Text Box Cell Reference
    I have to manually update cell references in text boxes as data shifts (across columns) daily in a separate workbook. Is there a way to automatically update all of the cell references at once using VBA?
  • 4. Shade even rows in a sheet
    I am hoping there is an easy way to get excel to shade all even rows in a work sheet that have data in them (as the range will vary from week to week). I only need Columns A through X shaded. Can anyone help? Many thanks in advance.

Strike-through an entire row.

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
incorrect.
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

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.  :
