How Do You Stop 0's From Showing Up On A Chart
I have data that has values showing 0 and I don't want them showing up on the chart. I have excel 2003 and 2007 that I need it to work for.

This is what I am using for excel 2007 and it works fine.

=IF(COUNTIF('Closed Transaction'!I6:I38,"Friends")=0,NA(),COUNTIF('Closed Transaction'!I6:I38,"Friends"))

I need a forumla for excel 2003. The one above still shows the 0's on the chart.

Stop Macros Showing In Macro Dialog
I've forgotten how to prevent the macros from showing in the macro dialogue box.

I'm sure it's got to be something with the VBA editor, but I can't figure it out.

I've got some files where the macro list is hidden and I'd like to do the same again, but for the life of me....I'm stumped. I'm sure it's something very simple.

I've protected the Worksheet & Workbook.

I've done some searching...."macro hide", "hide dialogue" etc. but can't seem to find what I'm looking for.

It's been a while since I had to amend code, as everythings been running very smoothly.

Stop #REF! Occurring When Changing Spreadsheet
Is it possible to stop the #REF! error appearing in my formulae when I make a change to my spreadsheet? I have some complicated spreadsheets that take a lot of re-building whenever I need to make changes because of the #REF! error. I tried turning off automatic calculation and that seems to work, until you calculate, then the errors appear. I find myself copying formulae into a text file and then re-pasting back into the spreadsheet after making the changes - there's gotta be a better way! (Using Excel 2003).

Stop Macro: Button To Hit Or Better Just Some Keys To Hit To Stop It Without Using The Ctrl+alt+del Which Closes Everything
my excel sheet runs through a lot of calculations, opens Flowmaster, a simulations program, passes on data, receivs data and so on. Is there any way to have a user input to stop the whole simulation. During the first tries I had a lot of break point in my debugger. But now I want to have a button to hit or better just some keys to hit to stop it without using the ctrl+alt+del which closes everything.

Spreadsheet That I Have A Lot Of Macros That Are Attached To A Customized Toolbar Saved In The Same Spreadsheet
I have a spreadsheet that I have a lot of macros that are attached to a customized toolbar saved in the same spreadsheet. I saved this is a read-only file. When I open as read-only and run my macros (testing), I save it as another file. When I then open the "template" to do the same thing, the toolbar/buttons now reference the file I previously saved as something else. Help please? Is there a macro that would delete all macros before saving the file as something else?

Multi-Spreadsheet Formula Down To Populate The Other Cells In The Total Spreadsheet
I have attached a document paralleling a document I am working on. The dollar amount in each spreadsheet represent sales. I have entered in values into the candy, soda, and chips spreadsheet. I have also linked values for candy into the total spreadsheet. My question is can I somehow type something or drag the formula down to populate the other cells in the total spreadsheet?

The idea I am thinking but which I don't know how to implement is to list all the items (as in column G) and list all of the relevant cells (e.g. B1 in the Candy spreadsheet) as in columns H and I (Note that all items will have the same cells but the cells will have different values...e.g. all three items have a cell B1 and B2 in their spreadsheet but these cells contain different values). I then try and fail to create a formula in cell B3 of the Total spreadsheet. I am trying to create a formula of the following nature:

='(Spreadsheet Name From Column G)'!(Cell Name From Columns H and I)

The Second half of the formula doesn't really concern me (i.e. the cell name from column H and I). However I am perplexed as to how to achieve the goal in the first parentheses above.

Copy Certain Cells From 1 Spreadsheet To Other Spreadsheet Depending On Condition
I have noticed that the basic problem I have is a common one on this forum with different varibles for different people. I have attached a dummy copy of the spreadsheet that I am using.

I need to copy cell information for one spreadsheet to one of 2 other spreadsheets depending on a dropbox condition. The master spreadsheet is the Issues spreadsheet, and depending on whether the user chooses Transferred Complaints or Transferred Offences (in Column K) I need to transfer certain cells to the Complaints or Offences spreadsheets.

Merge Files? (add Data From One Spreadsheet To The Appropriate Places On Another Spreadsheet)
Often I need to add data from one spreadsheet to the appropriate places on another spreadsheet. For example:

Sheet A has 10,000 records with these fields: id#, name, address, place of employment.

Sheet B has 5,000 records these fields: id#, GPA, college major, type of degree.

Some of the records in B contain information for the same id#'s as sheet A. I want to add this information together so that a Sheet C will have these fields: id#, name, address, place of employment, GPA, college major, type of degree.

Importing Data From Spreadsheet To Spreadsheet
I need to write a macro that will import data contained in another spreadsheet, but am unsure how to do this. I have several (about 15) spreadsheets that contain data. I need to import key bits of this data into one central spreadsheet that will be used for reporting purposes. I only need 2 cells worth (values) from each source spreadsheet, to be pasted into the destination spreadsheet, into designated cells.

The source spreadsheets are usually closed down and kept on a file server, which my PC has access to. Ideally I want to activate this macro with a control button - i.e. I press the button once and the macro goes off and collects/updates each field with the latest data stored in each of the source spreadsheets.

Add-in Not Showing Under Tools | Add-ins
I placed an add-in (.xla file) with a " function" and a "sub" into C:Microsoft Office XPOffice10Library. When I go to Tools-->Add-Ins the Add-In doesn't show up. When I browse the file it says it already exists and still doesn't show up. The strange thing is that the "function" does work, but the sub (which is a sub worksheet_change) doesn't run. I also tried doing the steps as they are laid out in and ended up with the same problem. The function works when I open up a brand new Excel application and use Book1, so I know the function isn't embedded in the sheet.

Showing A Difference Between Values
I have a spreadsheet with a lot of rows and there are three columns that can have a one of two values in it. These values are constantly changing from row to row, not just like a yes or no sort of thing. However 80% of the time they are the same values in all 3 columns, but I want some way of quickly identifying when there is a difference between column G, I, & K which are my three column names. So is there a way of conditionally formatting this to make a difference highlight in red or something like that?

DDE Links Showing #N/A! After Refresh
I have a large spreadsheet with several links to external data via DDE. With help of kind Ozgrid volunteers, I've managed to update the data link each second. However, every time the data is updated, the linked data displays #N/A for a split second. This is enough to cause hundreds of cells and formulas to display #N/A for a split second. Since this occurs once every second, the screen has become almost unreadable.

I have tried
Application. ScreenUpdating = False

without any success. I also tried disabling Excel Error Checking via Tools > Options > Error Checking.

Percentage Problem E.g 1.2 Showing As 120.0%
I know there is a simple to solution to this, i helped a colleague with it years ago but i can't figure out what i did to change it!

About a week ago my work computer was upgraded from Office 97 to Office 2003. My Excel now does the following:

When i type 1.2 in to a cell them change the format to percentage, i expect to see it as 1.2% BUT what happens is, Excel changes it to 120.0%

One possible solution is to type .12 - Excel changes it to 1.2% but this is very difficult to get used to and impossible when trying to calulate formula based %s

Hiding / Showing Columns ....
Here's what I'm trying to do -

There's a sheet called "Main" and 38 other sheets that shows the data (these 38 sheets all have the exact same structure/layout). Let's say these 38 sheets are called "country1", "country2", .... "country38".

Based on user input in cell J10 in "Main", I want to show only the relevant columns in all of the 38 country sheets. Specifically,

If J10 in sheet "Main" = "Option 1", hide all columns in all 38 sheets except columns A to W.

If J10 in sheet "Main" = "Option 2", hide all columns in all 38 sheets except columns Y to AU.

If J10 in sheet "Main" = "Option 3", hide all columns in all 38 sheets except columns AW to BS.

If J10 in sheet "Main" = "Option 4", hide all columns in all 38 sheets except columns BV to CQ.

If J10 sheet "Main = "ShowAll", show all columns in all 38 sheets....

Cell J10 in "Main" will be a drop down bar with the 5 choices.....

Hiding Buttons/showing Them
In my sheet, I've got a command button that protects the sheet and unprotects it (code was thanks to this forum) and I'd like to make it so that when the sheet is protected, all the other command buttons are hidden (CommandButton1 to CommandButton5) and then when the sheet is unprotected again, the buttons all show up.

The reason for this is because when other buttons are clicked as the sheet is protected, it brings up the error and shows Debug as an option and then the user can click that to look at the code and password for the protect sheet button.

Userform Refresh Not Showing
My macro is called from a command button on a userform. The userform contains 3 command buttons, a label, and an image box with no attached image. When a command button is pressed, the code sets the background colour of the image box to red and changes the label caption to "Processing..". Then screenupdating is set to false, the code runs, screenupdating is set to true, the image turns green and the label says "Ready!".

The problem is that the userform does not refresh to show the changes until the code is finished running, as though the screen does not update the userform before the "screenupdating" is turned off. Can anyone tell me how to ensure that the forms are displayed correctly before the screenupdating is disabled?

Column D - End date
Column E - Follow up Date

Rate column will have the ff inputs :
rate 1 = .09
rate 2 = .11

If rate is .09, then end date will be 2 years from the start date
If rate is .11, then end date will be 3 years from the start date

1. Show the customer's individual end dates in Column D
2. I'd like to show in column E the follow up date which is 90 days before the end date
