  • 1. Is it reliable?
    Kevin Assuming the same version of the software is used, you can still get differences, especially where the printers are different as that is the main factor determining where page breaks occur. Usually, the difference is not great in smaller documents, but it can become significant in larger ones.

  • 3. Building a Master To Do List
    To start, I do not work in excel on a regular basis. I am trying to figure out how to build a Master To Do List. I manage a bunch on projects at once and I'm trying to figure out how to use something like excel to stay on top of them all. I have created an excel file that contains something like 7 sheets. The first sheet is the Master To Do List, the other sheets are all individual projects. Each sheet has these heading across the top, in R1: Done, Date In, Category,Freq.,Action Item, and Date Due. I trying to figure out a how to go one way or the other, or both ways if possible; I want to be able to put in Action Items, with Date In, Category,Freq.,and Date Due and have it populate the other sheet. So, if I put Action Items on sheet ABC, and in Category I put ABC, that Action item and all the data from that row is copied/populated to the 'Master To Do List' sheet. Or, if I put an Action Item in the Master To Do List sheet and if I enter in Category 'ABC', I want to have that row of data populate the 'ABC' sheet. I'm hoping someone has already put together something like this. Thanks, Allyn Cutts
  • 4. color printing update
    OK, I'm going to ask a really dumb question now: Are you sure you are printing to a color printer and all ink reservoirs are full?

  • 5. what is plus sign in'=+(a1/b1)'?
    All help appreciated: I have a workbook that someone else made that has a formula that I am unsure of: =+(('RS MTD'!$H$31/1000)*12)/C37 what does the plus sign ('+') do here? Of course, RS MTD is the name of another worksheet in this workbook. Thanks.

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
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.  :
