what is excel


Hi,

Microsoft Excel is a commercial spreadsheet application . It features calculation, graphing tools, pivot tables, and a macro programming language called Visual Basic for Applications.
Microsoft Excel has the basic features of all spreadsheets, using a grid of cells arranged in numbered rows and letter-named columns to organize data manipulations like arithmetic operations. It has a battery of supplied functions to answer statistical, engineering and financial needs. In addition, it can display data as line graphs, histograms and charts, and with a very limited three-dimensional graphical display.

Regards,

I want to copy an Excel chart as a Image onto a PowerPoint Slide (Office 2007). What is the sequence of APIs to apply?


Copy worksheet data to a PowerPoint presentation
  1. In Excel, select the worksheet data that you want to copy to a PowerPoint presentation.
  2. On the Home tab, in the Clipboard group, click Copy za006044679.gif.

za010165428.gif

Keyboard shortcut You can also press CTRL+C.

  1. Click in the PowerPoint presentation where you want to paste the copied worksheet data.
  2. On the Home tab, in the Clipboard group, click Paste.

Keyboard shortcut You can also press CTRL+V.

  1. Click Paste Options za006043532.gif next to the data, and then do one of the following:
    • To use the original format of the copied data, click Keep Source Formatting.
    • To use the document theme that is applied to the PowerPoint presentation, click Use Destination Theme.
    • To paste table data that you copied as text, click Keep Text Only.

Notes

  • If you don't see the Paste Options button, you may have to turn it on. Click the Microsoft Office Button za010077102.gif, and then click PowerPoint Options. In the Advanced category, under Cut, Copy, and Paste, select the Show Paste Options buttons check box.
  • If you paste the data into a PowerPoint table, the Paste Options button is not displayed.
Tips
  • To paste the data in another format (such as a worksheet object, HTML format, bitmap, picture, or to text format) or to paste a link to the source data in Excel, on the Home tab, in the Clipboard group, click the arrow on the Paste button, and then click Paste Special. In the As list, click the format that you want to use.
    • If you want to edit the entire worksheet later, click Microsoft Office Excel Worksheet Object. Clicking Microsoft Office Excel Worksheet Object provides access to the entire worksheet in the presentation, including data that you may want to keep private. To automatically update the table in the presentation when changes are made to the source data in Excel, click Paste link. Both of these options also preserve the Excel formatting, even when the formatting features that are used are not supported in PowerPoint. If you saved the source workbook before you copied the data, you can also click Attach Hyperlink to insert a hyperlink in your presentation that directs you to the source data in Excel.
    • To paste the content as an Object Linking and Embedding (OLE) (OLE: A program-integration technology that you can use to share information between programs. All Office programs support OLE, so you can share information through linked and embedded objects.) PowerPoint application icon (rather than pasting the actual content), click Microsoft Office Excel Worksheet Object, and then select the Display as icon check box. You can click the icon to open the application and then view the content.
    • If you want to use HTML to copy the data to PowerPoint into a PowerPoint table, click HTML format.
    • To paste a static picture, click Device Independent Bitmap or Bitmap, or to paste a picture that can be ungrouped, click Picture (Enhanced Metafile) or Picture (Windows Metafile).
    • To paste the data as formatted or unformatted text, click Formatted Text (RTF) or Unformatted Text.
  • To paste the data as a hyperlink that directs you to the source data in Excel, click the arrow on the Paste button, and then click Paste As Hyperlink. If the workbook that contains the source data has not been saved yet, this option is unavailable.
  • If you want the range of data that you paste as a Microsoft Excel Worksheet Object into a PowerPoint presentation to expand when the corresponding data expands on the Excel worksheet, you can define a name (name: A word or string of characters that represents a cell, range of cells, formula, or constant value. Use easy-to-understand names, such as Products, to refer to hard to understand ranges, such as Sales!C20:C30.) for the range of data in Excel before you copy the data. You can then paste a link to the named range by using the Paste Special command. On the Home tab, in the Clipboard group, click the arrow on the Paste button, click Paste Special, and then click Paste link. This works only when you copy data that is not in table format in Excel.

sum of the greatest run of negitive numbers


Hi, Not sure if this is what you have tried:
1: Assuming each run is on a different column
Run1 Run2 Run3 Run4, etc...and the maxium lenght of each column is 9 values, but each colum has a different lenght of numbers..
Then you can use:
=MAX(COUNTIF(A2:A10,"<>0"),COUNTIF(B2:B10,"<>0"), {keep adding countif for each colum).

If all runs are on the same colum, then using Pivot tables is easier. If you have a copy of your data, please post it so that I can give you the exact formula ;)

how to convert the pdf( telephone directerey page) to ms excel ?


Highlight and copy the text in the telephone directory PDF, paste it into excel and use the excel text to columns tool to justify the mess of text into the appropriate columns.
id say the delimited by spaces option would be the go with this one, though PDFS often have issues when trying this method.
You may need to pre clean the pasted data before putting it into excel with notepad using find and relace to remove double spaces and wierd charcaters.
