  • 2. link to cell, including hyperlink
    searching the forums and i can't seem to find any post that solve m problem. basically i have a long colomn of links starting in cell A1, that i a hyperlink to a picture, and the word displayed is "screenshot". I' consentaly inserting new cells and shifting the current ones down. Th hyperlinks shift ok and everything. my problem is, i have another sheet that i've made that i will b saving in HTML format for easy viewing online. BUt i only want it t show the most recent 10 screenshots. When I'm on the other sheet an try ='sheet1'!$A$1 instead of copying the hyperlink, it only copie the word, screenshot. I made the hyperlinks by right clicking on the cell and clicking o hyperlink (using excel xp). I saw in other threads that usin =hyperlink forumla worked for other peoples problems. But i've trie that and that doesn't seem to work either copying and pasting works.. but i was just wondering if anyone knew ho to make the hyperlinks work also, since it would take alot less time t just let excel update the info itself. thanks ps . it doesn't have to be a different sheet, trying to just use =A1 in the same sheet gives me the same result

  • 4. Column Repeat on a Spreadsheet
    Good day. I have a problem with the columns repeating on a speadsheet. All the pages appear to be fine until I read a certain point and then Excel decides to automatically insert a line across a certain amount of the spreadsheet. If I take my line out (where the column is repeating) the line automatically put there is still there, but it is not lined up correctly with the rest of the columns. Why does this happen. I have tried everything from reinserting my lines to making sure that the gridlines are not printing or showing on the spreadsheet.

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.  :
