Cell freeze 3 rows together at a time.


Freeze a Row in Microsoft Excel
Microsoft Excel 2010 can freeze, or lock, a top row as you scroll down the worksheet.
For example, you may need to keep the top row of column titles visible at all times.
The "View" tab on the command ribbon contains the "Freeze Panes" button in the "Window" group.
A single row or a range of rows can lock through the "Freeze Top Row" or "Freeze Panes" options.

Open the Excel worksheet.
Click the top row heading.
The row heading displays a number just left of the first column of cells. The selected row appears shaded.


Click the "View" tab on the command ribbon.
Click the "Freeze Panes" button in the "Window" group.
A list of options appears.

Click the "Freeze Top Row" option.
A black horizontal line appears on the worksheet.
This line indicates the locked row that stays on the screen as you scroll down the worksheet.

When you inaserrt a cell into a row,all data in that row is shifted down true or false?


With most spreadsheet programs, false. Of course, the data in that row below the insertion point is usually pushed down but not the data above.

How to number a column. I can't remember the short formula, something like a1+1= which would make the number two pop up in the cell underneath.


You can number rows in a column by entering a number in cell A1 (usually the number 1 but youcan start with any number) and the formula (=A1+1) in the next row. The result there will be 2. Copy that formula down the rows you want to number and they will be numbered 3, 4, 5, etc. Each row adds 1 to the previous row so if you do anything that disrupts the sequence (like inserting a row between two others) you will have to copy the formulas down again to restore the sequence. You can also use the Edit-Fill-... menu command to put a series of numbers into rows. Put the starting number in th efirst row. Highlight it and the rows that you want to number and select Edit-Fill-Series... Those numbers will not change if you insert columns or move the formulas.
Or you can use the formula =ROW(A1) in any cell to return the number of that row. (The result of =ROW(A1) is the number 1 in cell A1, the result of =ROW(A2) is the number 2 in cell B2, etc. In this case inserting rows will not affect the numbering (i.e. row A5 will always be numbered 5 even if the data in it is moved down.)

Search code in visual basic


If your rows are being displayed or hidden on the form, the easiest way would be to use a filter on that part of the form. The filter would be based on the button being pushed; each button would invoke a different filter.

Make sure that the filter property of the form is ON.

Hi,
Cool problem I use this to track stocks for the latest 5 days, 15 days and so on.

First I have a sheet that is titled "DataRecord" this has my individual data in columns and the days recorded in rows. This is a complete record or all recorded stock activity. This is where all the entrys are made in rows. I freeze window to make the column headings and the left most column(the date) always visible to prevent errors.

Next I have a sheet that is titled "L5DaysData' I have sevreral rows of data like avg, & what ever. and the latest 5 days data starts on line say 6. a typ. cell ='DataRecord'!B970
The next cell down has a value of ='DataRecord'!B971 and so and on until B974

My Graphs are built on these individual "L5 or 15 or 60 or90 day" sheets of data.

Next I make a macro that translates the last line of data down one row and deletes the row just above the earliest that I want to save on "L5DaysData" so it always shows only the latest 5 days of information.

All the information shown on that worksheet is the data for graphs or tables refering to the latest 5 days activity.
The graphs are automatically updated with the data each time the macro is run.

You can also use a formula to adjust the date column by adding a value of one to a specfic dated cell untill you reach Sat or Sun and add 3 or 2 to that date cell and translate that down a column and use a work sheet that records only the latest 3Mo. with macros that updates the information when you want it to.
Hope this helps.
Glad to be of assistance - please rate the solution I can learn from you. Thanks

The value cannot be added to this new row until the row has been committed


It sounds like you are using an ADO data set, which is probably one of the more difficult, especially for a beginner. What you are seeing is that the data does not update related controls until the data has been committed to the row you are updating. Set the Binding.DataSourceUpdateMode to DataSourceUpdateMode.OnPropertyChanged.

Or, depending on the version of Access you are using, the option may be somewhat different. The point is to tell the control to update "on change" - so that once your data is in there (a change) the other items you want to happen will occur, as the row has been committed (recorded). Thanks for rating FixYa!

Sort data and create graphs for each quarter


you could have all the data in the same worksheet, but sort it using filters, eg data....sort.....auto-filter. click on the little arrow at the top of each column, then click on the item listed. this will then show only those rows associated with that item.

Duplicacy in excel sheet


Since you are searching the data by the phone number , first select all the data in the spreadsheet and sort it in ascending order by the phone number.
Then, assuming you have 5 columns of data A through E, and the phone numbers are in column E, with row 1 occupied by column headings, use the following formula in cell F2=IF(E2=E1,"Duplicate",1)

Drag this formula down column F till the end of your data
Select the entire data and do an auto filter
In column F filter the data by Duplicate and delete all these rows
What remains should be unique data
