Hello, How Do I Get Rid Of These Numbers?
All I want to do is subtract col C from cell B2. I have a formula in col D that reads as such: =Sum(C2-$B$2). I copied the formula down 10 rows so C2 becomes C3,C4,C5, etc. The formula works but leaves the Beg Bal amount all the way down col D. I want to just show the Increase/Decrease amount in col D, not the Beg Bal amount. Please see attached screen shot.

Getting Rid Of Tick Marks
Some sent me a large spreadsheet with random rows throughout the spreadsheet highlighted in diffierent colors. I have a module that will sort the spread sheet by Color - however it doesn't work on this spreadsheet because - for whatever reason - every cell starts with a tick mark.

I tried to do a replace all - and excel just told me I was crazy.

I even tried going through and manually removing the tick marks - still no luck.

If I export the sheet in to txt and then re-import it I will loose all the highlights...

Get Rid Of Path In File Name
How can I get the name of a workbook WITHOUT the path when I have the name WITH the path?

To be more specific. When I use "Application. GetOpenFilename" the result is a file name for say "my_book" including the path. With this I can open the file using "Workbooks.Open" and Excel will show me "my_book". But when I want to reference this workbook later on in say "Workbooks(my_book)", then I need the file name without the path. How can I get that one in VBA?

Till now I was using "CurDir" to find out the path after opening the file and just subtracted it from the full file name. This seamed to be fine. But now I had a situation where CurDir gave me a path with abbreviations (~),

VLookup Returns #N/A :: How To Get Rid?
I have a vlookup formula for a table (attached), where for some reason, I cannot get rid of the #N/A value that is returned. I am referencing on the first sheet the 'No." column, and in checking for that number in the second column, am wanting to put the value in the 'moldules' column. I have tried converting the reference cells to text, numbers, have done =LEN to look at character counts, etc etc. I have also tried to build a simple dummy vlookup on a different set of data. The file is in Excel 07.

Getting Rid Of Unwanted Data
Each week I import some data into my workbook (its financial-imports stock names, identiy codes and stock type). I've added a formula which calculates the credit ratings of each stock type, and then conditional formatting to highlight any credit ratings which are less than my required rating.

Further to this I need to get rid off all the rows which which have an stock type "No Asset Class". I cant use auto-filter because there are too many other stock types which I need to be included.

Getting Rid Of Command Buttons
I have a range of cells (A1:D5) identified within a worksheet (worksheetA) as part of a user input form.

When a certain condition exists, a routine is executed that copies a range of cells (C1:F5) from another worksheet (worksheetB) to this defined range. The copied area consists of two command buttons. They get copied and pasted no problem.

When I want to reset (blank it out of its contents) my range in worksheetA from I copy another range over of just a range of blank shaded cells. However, doing this does not eliminate the command buttons left in the range on previous pasting.

How do I delete these command buttons left from previous pasting activities when I wish to reset my range?

Getting Rid Of Specific Column Data
In this example, i need to get rid of all the rows except for the mfg part #. The heading "mfg part #" can be deleted as well.

The number of rows will vary each time i capture data. So for this example, i need 50 rows of data, but the next time i capture it, i might need to only keep 10 rows of data. The format will remain the same, the only thing that changes are the number of rows and the actual part #'s.

How To Get Rid Of Duplicated Shortcuts On Right-click

The calendar works fine but the problem I've got is I've got unwanted copies of the shortcut when I right-click. If you scroll down the URL, right at the bottom in blue is a paragraph that describes the problem and how to get rid of it. I've tried this numerous times but the duplicate entries keep re-appearing.

I've attached my workbook in the hope that any of you experts would be so kind as to take a look and offer any help or advice on how to fix this problem?

Import File, Keep Leading Zero, Get Rid Of Spaces
I have a problem which may seem simple but is daunting for me.
I have a file in xls format that i need to import data from.
The problem is with column A, (e.g. 0233 45) if I get rid of the spaces I loose leading zero, if I keep the zero I cannot get rid of spaces. The thing is I need both conditions satisfied.
To summarize:

1)Import file and delete columns B and C
2)In column A get rid of spaces but keep leading zero (it's important to keep the zero where it exists, not add one). The length is different for each string in column A.

Here is a small sample of the file that is imported

Can't Get Rid Of Macro/object Reference
i created a spreadsheet which, using vba, disallows sheet deletion (works a dream); problem since has been that i cannot delete any sheets in any workbook anymore, and even a completely empty unsaved spreadsheet will try to open the worksheet containing the original code...

i've tried the following:
- deleted the workbook excel is trying to reference
- ensured there are no macros in excel
- ensured there is no vba code whatsoever
- checked the defined names (nothing)
- checked the vba objects
- debugged the "delete sheet" (didn't work)
- uninstalled all of office 2003, then cleaned registry, then reinstalled from scratch
- all of the above again
- searched about a zillion internet postings

Can't Get Rid Of Values In Sum Fields
Although I have removed the original numbers in the main area (I12 - AM12), there are still values in the fields I11 - AM11 that just won't go away. These formulas merely sums up the columns below as far as I can see so I can't figure out how come the values 101, 98, 9o etc aren't '0' since there are no values to add anymore..

NB!Not sure if the formulas will be in norwegian or if they change based on language settings but think you will be able to figure them out regardless..

Static Formula Reference: Delete And Drag-and-drop Data To Get Rid Of Any Bogus Values
I making a template for multiple users to import data into for analysis. I want them to be able to delete and drag-and-drop data to get rid of any bogus values. However i need forumlas that reference those to NOT follow the values as there as moved. As a simple example say you have two columns, column A is a set of random numbers, column B is the number from coumn A times 2. If take the bottom half of column A and drag it up one cell, overwriting a cell, now the cell in column B next to the overwritten cell has a #REF err and ever cell below that now references a Cell in column A from the previous row. I want a formula that references a static address and will not follow the cell if it is moved.

If I use named ranges rather than specific cells references it works for the above example, however for my actual form it does not. Even though the ranges and formulas stay the same I start getting incorrect values. If there is no other way to this I will try to figure why the named ranges do not work.

Not sure if Excel can perform these calculations as they could get to complex.

Problem 1
Can it be possible to have excel look at data from one cell reference another cell then display the results from the cell next to it in another cell, sort of example:

Tab 1 (Never changes)

Tab 2 (Dynamic, changes each week)

So it would work as follows.
Tab2 column B will take Tab2 column As data check Tab1 column A and display Tab1 column Bs result.

Problem 2

Send Row Number Of Changed Cell To Cell Where Row Resides In Cell
I have the following range of cells B2:Y3700. I want that when a value from 1 to 9999 is inserted in one cell of the above mentioned range, to copy the row number of that cell in the cell that is located in column Z and row is the number inserted in that cell. For example, if the number "1234" is inserted in one cell from range B2:Y3700, to enter in cell Z1234 the number of the row where is located the respective cell. At same the time is very important to me to not permit to insert the same number in B2:Y3700, so i believe that is need a macro code to check the cell from column z to see if value already exist .

Passing Cell References From A Cell's Text To LINEST Function And A Graph

I currently have a formula copied to dozens of cells in 'A' but since the number of rows for the Input Template is variable, there are usually cells in 'A' that contain CG but no corresponding data in the rest of the row.

another place depending on what value was entered in E3. If it's done
this then I won't need to go to B2, I'd want to go to A8 after E3
instead of B2.
