How do I pull a figure from a spread sheet and add it to another in the same file.....


Are you talking about different worksheets in the same file.
go to the other worksheet then go to the particular cell and press = on keyboard
then use mouse to select the other worksheet from the bottom of the spreadsheet .
Then click on the cell you wish to link and press enter key on keyboard.

You can also do this to spreadsheets with different file names by opening both spread sheets in different windows and switching between the windows.

you can also copy just the data by copy whole sheet (click on the square in top left hand and copy and then right click paste special on new worksheet - with values only rather than the original formulas from the spreadsheet

Correct a #N/A error blueup_clv.gifShow All bluedrop_clv.gifHide All This error occurs when a value is not available to a function or formula.
  1. Optionally, click the cell that displays the error, click the button that appears ooui1_za06043871.gif, and then click Show Calculation Steps if it appears.
  2. Review the following possible causes and solutions. blueup_clv.gifMissing data, and #N/A or NA() has been entered in its place
    Replace #N/A with new data.
    Note You can enter #N/A in those cells where data is not yet available. Formulas that refer to those cells will then return #N/A instead of attempting to calculate a value.
    blueup_clv.gifGiving an inappropriate value for the lookup_value argument in the HLOOKUP, LOOKUP, MATCH, or VLOOKUP worksheet function
    Make sure that the lookup_value argument (argument: The values that a function uses to perform operations or calculations. The type of argument a function uses is specific to the function. Common arguments that are used within functions include numbers, text, cell references, and names.) is the correct type of value — for example, a value or a cell reference, but not a range reference. blueup_clv.gifUsing the VLOOKUP, HLOOKUP, or MATCH worksheet function to locate a value in an unsorted table
    By default, functions that look up information in tables must be sorted in ascending order. However, the VLOOKUP and HLOOKUP worksheet functions contain a range_lookup argument (argument: The values that a function uses to perform operations or calculations. The type of argument a function uses is specific to the function. Common arguments that are used within functions include numbers, text, cell references, and names.) that instructs the function to find an exact match even if the table is not sorted. To find an exact match, set the range_lookup argument to FALSE. The MATCH worksheet function contains a match_type argument that specifies the order the list must be sorted in to find a match. If the function cannot find a match, try changing the match_type argument. To find an exact match, set the match_type argument to 0.
    blueup_clv.gifUsing an argument in an array formula that is not the same number of rows or columns as the range that contains the array formula
    If the array formula (array formula: A formula that performs multiple calculations on one or more sets of values, and then returns either a single result or multiple results. Array formulas are enclosed between braces { } and are entered by pressing CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER.) has been entered into multiple cells, make sure that the ranges referenced by the formula have the same number of rows and columns, or enter the array formula into fewer cells. For example, if the array formula has been entered into a range 15 rows high (C1:C15) and the formula refers to a range 10 rows high (A1:A10), the range C11:C15 will display #N/A. To correct this error, enter the formula into a smaller range (for example, C1:C10), or change the range to which the formula refers to the same number of rows (for example, A1:A15).
    blueup_clv.gifOmitting one or more required arguments from a built-in or custom worksheet function
    Enter all arguments (argument: The values that a function uses to perform operations or calculations. The type of argument a function uses is specific to the function. Common arguments that are used within functions include numbers, text, cell references, and names.) in the function.

I need to print mailing labels imported from excel to word in columnar order instead of in order by rows across the page.


hi Samajane,

I understand the you excel file has data that is stored column wise. Well you can first convert the column wise data to row wise data and then import it to you word.

To convert the column wise data to row wise data.
1.Select the data in your worksheet.
2.Right Click -> Copy
3.Create a blank worksheet.
4.Goto Edit - > Paste Special
5.Check the Transponse Option
6.Press OK.

Now you have converted your column wise data to row wise data and now u can import it to your word and print mailing labels

Excel Spreadsheet


It could have a virus or simply too much data in it or too much data linked to it. Try doing a copy of the whole spreadsheet, and then paste the data into a new spreadsheet. If it doesn't contain too many different formulas, try pasting only the values, and then replace the formulas manually. You might also try just deleting the links, if there are any. If this doesn't solve it, reply to this thread and let us know.

Hope this will FixYa!!!

LINE 100


If Sale Line 100 is an Excel Template then it is simple.

The Templates are just preformatted spreadsheets which are edited just like any other spreadsheet.

If you mean that you are using the Template to create another document but wanting all the fields to be the same as the Invoice then I suggest the following method:

Copy the Template fron Worksheet 1 onto Worksheet 2.

Add and remove any fields that you wnt to add or remove (Prices would be deleted on this copy and the title would be changed from Invoice to Delivery Docket, etc)

Then (on Worksheet 2) in the fields that you want to be the same - click on the cell you want the same Data in and hit the = sign. Then go to Worksheet 1 and Click on the cell that you want the data to be the same. Hit Enter. This will send you back to Worksheet 2 and you will see that any data entered into the cell in Worksheet 1 will now also appear in Worksheet 2.

Repeat this process for all the cells you want copied from worksheet 1.

When you complete the data in Worksheet 1 (the Invoice) all the data selected will automatically appear in the cells selected on Worksheet 2.

Try this on worksheet 2 select cell A1, type =, then open worksheet 1 and select B1. You will be returned to worksheet 2 and the formula in cell A1 will now read =Sheet1!A1. Enter anything into Shhet 1 A1 and you will see that it appears in the appropriate cell on Sheet 2.

When you want to print off the Invoice and the Delivery Docket - you only have to open each Worksheet and hit Print and a copy of each worksheet will be printed giving you an Invoice and a Delivery Docket with the appropriate info on each printout (eg if you exclude prices from the Del. Docket then after completing all the details in the Invoice will create a Del Docket with all the relevant information other than the prices.

Does this answer your question?

Vloop


Are you referring to the VLOOKUP function in Microsoft Excel?

I love vlookup!

Suppose you have 1 worksheet with song numbers and titles in Row 1, Cols A:B:

Song# Title
123 Love Me Tender
234 Blue Suede Shoes
345 Dixie

Another worksheet has song number and performer in Row 1, Cols A:B

Song# Performer
123 Elvis Presley
234 Carl Perkins
456 Cher

Notice there is NO performer for song number 345 in the 2nd worksheet.

Now in the 1st work sheet, cell C2 insert this LOOKUP function: =LOOKUP(A2,Sheet2!A:B)

Copy that cell to row 3 and row 4 in Col C. You should get a Performer for all songs even though there is not a song number 345 in the performer worksheet.

Help me out Mr. VLOOKUP.

Insert this VLOOKUP function in cell C2 of the first worksheet: =VLOOKUP(A2,Sheet2!A:B,2,0)

Copy that cell to row 3 and row 4 Col C. You should get the performer names for the 1st 2 songs, but not for 345 Dixie. The result should be #N/A.

That means VLOOKUP could not find a DIRECT match for song 345 in the second worksheet.

That is why I prefer VLOOKUP over LOOKUP.

I have found this explaination of the VLOOKUP parameters helpful:

1. Needle (A2)
2. Haystack (Sheet2!A:B)
3. RELATIVE Col containing result (2)
4. Need DIRECT MATCH ONLY (0)

Hope this helps.
