Question about Business & Productivity Software

1 Answer

Excel formula Sorry for messing around but I am new to all of this so I will start again: I have 2 worksheets named DCT INFO and DCT. In DCT INFO I have 2 columns - A has positions (some are missing so it's not consecutive) B has a corresponding dollar amount. I need to copy these 2 columns to worksheet DCT together with all the missing positions (fill in missing), and their corresponding values. The missing positions which are filled in on column A must show a "0" in column B in DCT.

Re: Excel formula

Hi, I am not really sure if I get your exct meaning, so would I be correct in saying that you wish to copy all the data and structure from DCT INFO across to DCT. If this is correct so long as the dollar data is formatted in the first worksheet to currency then when it is pasted it will maintain its formating into the next sheet.

One question though...Do you wish to change the data on the DCT INFO sheet and wish it to be automatically changed in the DCT sheet?

If yes then you will have to write the following formula into the DCT cells:- =DCT INFO!A1 (where A1 is the first cell of data in sheet DCT INFO that you wish to duplicate.) You can then use auto fill by selecting the cell you just typed the formula in to and then placing the cursor onto the small black square in the righthand bottom of the cell and clicking the left mouse button and holding and dragging down to whereever your data ends. For example A30. Repeat this with the column B.
Let me know if tis is not entirelt what you require and I will try to help further.

Count how many times a value appears in a column, based on anothe

Go to the cell you want this total in.
Type this formula:
make sure you end the formula with CTRL - SHIFT - ENTER which makes it an array formula. If you forget, go back to the cell with this formula and press F2 (to edit the cell) and press CTRL - SHIFT - ENTER to convert it to an array formula (Excel will show a little {...} around the formula).

Print source code of an Access Database


The source code request would be for a program code, appropriate if you actually wrote the code for the Excel program, but if you are copywriting a set of formulas or an excel execution sequence, then you want to print your formula view for copywriting.Excel has a Formula View that shows the formulas on your worksheet rather than the results of those formulas. You toggle between Formula View and Normal View by pressing CTRL ~ on your keyboard. Just toggle to formula view and print your worksheet to see all of your formulas.

Good luck with your copywrite!

MS EXCEL 2000 corrupted workbooks/worksheets

it sounds like you are going over the limits of the program these are the specs. I would recommend dividing up the data if you can. or moving it to a database that can act like excel and hold more data.

Forgot password to open Excel sheet

If you mean that you can open the Workbook and read the Worksheet - then all you have to do is select all and paste it to another Worksheet. This will allow for changes of formulas etc.

If you mean the whole Workbook - then I dunno.

In future, either use the same password for everything (easy to remember) or Protect the work with nothing entered into the password field (leave this blank). This last will protect the work from people who try to guess your password, but will be easy for you to remember - eg every password is left blank.

If you must use unique passwords, then keep a record of them somewhere other than on your computer.

Sorry I can't help with the "Workbook" solution - but somebody else out ther may be able to do so.

You can refer to cells that are on other worksheets by perpending the name of the worksheet followed by an exclamation point (!) to the cell reference. In the following example, the AVERAGE worksheet function calculates the average value for the range C1:C10 on the worksheet named Marketing in the same workbook.

default.aspx?assetid=za010939481033 Refers to the worksheet named Marketing default.aspx?assetid=za010939491033 Refers to the range of cells between C1 and C10, inclusively
  1. Click the cell in which you want to enter the formula.
  2. In the formula bar (formula bar: A bar at the top of the Excel window that you use to enter or edit values or formulas in cells or charts. Displays the constant value or formula stored in the active cell.) default.aspx?assetid=za060515351033, type = (equal sign).
  3. Click the tab for the worksheet to be referenced.
  4. Select the cell or range of cells to be referenced.

Dear jois you can make a link from one sheet to other sheet by making a hyperlink. When you will click one cell in first sheet it would shift the sheet in the cell you will fix it.

You can follow this process:

  1. Select a cell that contains the external formula
  2. Highlight the File path and sheet name in the Formula bar, eg; 'L:\Daves\[Book2.xls]Sheet1'!
  3. Push Ctrl+C then push Enter.
  4. Select the range of cells you wish to change the reference in and go to Edit>Replace.
  5. Select in the Find what box and hold down the Backspace to ensure you do not have a space.
  6. Push Ctrl+V.
  7. Do the same in the Replace with box and then edit the file path to the new one needed.
  8. Click Replace All
if that has helped you please press 'fixya'
