Egad. Well, first off, I'd suggest splitting the document up if you can. The chances Excel will crash on all those records is pretty good.

Next, you'll need to use VBA I think. Do you know any VBA? I am guessing you probably don't. Anyway, I can't go into it all here, but I'd suggest you snag a local with some VBA skills and then point him or her to this:

How do you copy and paste one excel spreadsheet to another making sure the headers are lined up correctly.


right-click the sheet you want to copy, select "copy to", then either select the position within the current document, select annother document (needs to be open in the same excel instance) or select "new document". check the box "copy" to copy, leave unchecked to move.

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.

Excel table link in word


Excel and Word are two parts of the Microsoft Office Suite that have become standards tools for spreadsheets and word processing.
Among their features are the ability to easily exchange information.
For example, you can easily copy a cell or part of a spreadsheet from an Excel and paste it into a Word document, which preserves all the formatting.
This method requires opening up both programs at the same time.
To avoid this, you can insert an Excel file from within Word itself.

Choose the "Insert" tab inside Microsoft Word to display the Object dialog box.
Click the "Create from File" tab and Browse to display the Browse dialog box.
Navigate to the Excel file that you need and double-click to load its name into the File Name box of the Object dialog box.

Click a checkmark into the "Link to File" box if you want the table that you insert to be automatically updated anytime the original file is changed.
Otherwise, leave it blank if you don't want the inserted information to be affected by the original file.

Click "OK" to insert the Excel file as a frame into the document.
Note how only filled cells from the first table (worksheet) of the file are inserted.
Blank cells are not inserted. You can resize the frame by clicking it and dragging the handles that appear.
You can also click it and drag it to a different line within the document.

Lookup,s


If you can move your name column (C) to the first column, you could leverage the VLOOKUP formula pretty easily.
To do this, do the following:
1) Move the C Column to be the A Column, shifting all other columns to the right.
2) (optional) Insert a new row at the top of the sheet (to hold the formula & seach value)
3) Use A1 as your search field.
4) In A2, enter the following formula:
=VLOOKUP($A$1,$A$2:$C$6,3,)

Describing above parameters, in the formula:
$A$1 -> the search field (name your looking for).
$A$2:$C$6 -> The table/grid you wish to search and return values from. The left most column (A) must contain the values to be searched.
3 -> is the column number (A=1,B=2,C=3, etc) within the table/grid to return.

If you cannot make the name column your first (A) column, there are more complex ways to do this. For instance, create a new sheet which redisplays the info in the structure easier for this method, and perform the VLOOKUP on that data. Other options might exist in creating a complex formula that would get you what you want.
Also, if you can sort column A (names) it would find results faster, if your data set is large.

Problem with excel


Hello!

Have you tried a simple restart of Excel and/or your computer? That would be my 1st recommendation. If that doesn't work, make sure the font formatting for the cells is correct (this seems simple but could be overlooked perhaps). If that doesn't work you may try to repair/reinstall Excel (use the Office disc).

Let me know if you need additional help or if that doesn't work. Any additional information you can provide would be very helpful though.

Best of luck!
