Using Excel in XP, is there a way to paste additional columns into an autofiltered list without filling in the hidden rows that are not part of the selected list? I am trying to combine two spreadsheets, and need to paste a ton of data into one spreadsheet.

I hope that this is clear enough to convey what I need to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated.



A:Problems Pasting Additional Columns Into Autofiltered Lists in Excel

You cannot insert a column with the autofilter showing only selected data. Just set the filter(s) to All and then you can insert the columns, then you can reset the filters. You can, however, paste a column in with the filter on - just copy the data and then put the cursor in the top cell of the column you want to paste into - it will be filtered also.

Hi All, trying to create multi row/column drop down list of drivers that go over different routes. some go over more than others and some none at all. i would like to search for a route which brings up the drivers names etc.hope you can help. many thanks.

A:Excel 2013 drop down lists

A slight improvement, im now using the 'Like' operator so that you can for example, search for 'Ben' in the name field and it will return all names and routes for people whos name is like 'Ben' such as 'Ben' 'Ben smith', 'Benjamin something' etcthis is also true for the route names, you can enter a short route name such as 'Acton East' and it will return all the drivers names that have routes with 'Acton East' in them.Dim SearchName As String
Dim SearchRoute As String
Dim uRange
Dim lRange
Dim Bcell As Range
Dim iResults As String

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()

Set uRange = Sheet1.Range("A1")
Set lRange = Sheet1.Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp)

'Uses both the name and the route to perform and return search results
If Range("A2") <> Empty And Range("B2") <> Empty Then

For Each Bcell In Sheet1.Range(uRange, lRange)

have designed an invoice form in Excel 2010
have made a Drop down box using the "products" worksheet information in the drop down list. The drop down list shows only column 1.

some ITEMS in the "products" worksheet, have the same name (col 1) with different prices in (col 2)
for example:

the following is an example of the "product" list:
col 1 col 2
apple $44
apple $48
apple $50

I would like to view columns 1 and 2 in the drop down list to make the choice of which price to charge

depending which row "apple" is chosen from, the price goes into the amount column on the invoice, with the description showing only "apple"

I wish to only show "apple" in the invoice description area

so ... how to view 2 columns (in the drop down Box) but only make one entry (from col 1) into the invoice?

A:Excel Drop down box how to view 2 columns

It sounds like you would need to set up a third column in your sheet to combine the Col1 and Col2 information and then link your drop down to that. Assuming your drop down tool is an activex or forms type rather than "in cell validation" type, you can then fill your invoice with the information from Col1.

I'm new to Access and am trying to create a table/form which allows a user to choose from a drop down list. So far I have added the relevent fields to my table however one of the fields is labled status and this status can be one of a number of options.

I need to create a form which allows users to enter in all the fields normally, but when they get to the status option they are provided with a drop down list of set options (which I will decide) rather than a normal text box.

How can this be done, I know it is quite simple but I have only started learning Access this weekend!

A:Using drop down lists in access

The best way is to put those "Status Options" in their own Table with it's own Query, which can be used to Sort the Options in to Ascending Alphabetical order.

I have 2 tables where the id in the main table that I need to match with the second table could appear in any one of 3 columns of the second table. I can get the data by created 2 more tables and making three separate queries. Is there any way to create a query that would merge the two tables no matter which column the matching data is in without create 3 separate tables and queries?

How do I unlock the outline column when I protect the sheet?

Have a spreadsheet in outline form (Data->Group and Outline ...) which, of course, produces a special column to the left of the worksheet that allows expansion or contraction of the rows on the spreadsheet (with a plus or minus sign).

I want to protect the spreadsheet, but still allow this expansion and contraction. However, when I protect the worksheet (tools->protection->Protect Sheet) it also protects this expansion/contraction column

A:Solved: Excel 2003 Unprotect Outline Columns

Yep, that to my knowledge is correct.

I'm using some software to export payment information into a CSV file. This file needs to be in the bank's specified SIF format which requires all the data to be in one column.

The limitation with my software is that the detail of each payment gets exported into it's own separate column. For instance, cells A1:A10 contain payment details to one individual, B1:B10 to another, and so on. I require the whole lot combining into Column A, running from A1:A65536 (it will never go this far down the spreadsheet, but you get the idea).

I've tinkered with some basic copy and delete macros but I'm unable to make the headway that I need to. I don't have the touch when it comes to programming .

I'm no expert on the subject, and make no garauntees as to the setup of your system or stability thereafter. If you are running (I'm assuming) Windows 9X and IE 4 or above, the following lines should work for you as they do for me. This is what I like to do... it's free and it does almost everything those "Clean" programs do. You can copy this into your Autoexec.bat file to run at startup (certain files must be deleted in dos because of windows write-protection i.e. index.dat) However, you can also save these lines as "clean.bat" on the desktop or wherever to run when you're finished surfing, but those "certain" files won't be completely gone until you reboot.

Dear guys,

I was wondering if there is a way to change Columns to Text. I know that from the last question i posted here a while back, that we could change a string of text in to many columns. So what i would like to do now is the opposite.

Referring to the excel spreadsheet attached, I basically want to change columns A, B and C in to G.

At first i tried using the formula "=(A3 x B3 x C3)" and obviously that didnt work if not i wouldnt be posting here. How would you pick values up from a cell and then use them in another cell something like =A3 which will bring the value of that cell into another cell. How would you do it for multiple cell references?

Thanks in advance!

I'm creating an on-line form in Word 97 which has drop-down lists.

My problem is that Word limits the list to 25 entries, and I need approximately 70 entries!!

A:Word 97 drop-down lists in on-line forms

I'm thinking that a dropdown list of 70+ entries will not even be visible in the size of the average monitor. Perhaps you can break these items down into some kind of categories, even if it's A-F, G-R, T-Z?

Consider using Excel for this form too because Excel will let you do data validation within a cell: list, and select a range of cells to list.

I take it you mean each cell has a drop down list from which the user can select?

If so, I presume you are using data validation and the list option from within it?

This works. You just have to select each column at a time, ie. select column A data range and apply the data validation. Select column B and then apply the data validation...and so on.

So the strangest things has happenned on my Win7 x64 -- the tabs are tiny in programs such as Task Manager. Also, text is hidden in buttons and lists. IE9 crashes with gmail. Other important screens also show the same hidden text behaviour. Luckilly, many programs do not have this bug. However, the system restore screens do have the bug... so it's near impossible to restore to an earlier point.

Also, earlier restore points were missing when I tried to access via that F8 / cmd prmpt method. Perhaps they are saved under a different account by the way HP setup the laptop.

Gmail is no big deal -- can access that via firefox (not IE9 or Chrome! right now). I'm more trying to get the core windows functionality back.

Anybody ever encountered this situation or have any ideas?

One of our users has a multi-tab Excel (vers. 2002, SP3) workbook with several columns containing pricing and taxes on products we handle. When she prepares to print the worksheet, she hides some of the middle columns so that only the data in the first and last columns will print out. The issue is, as soon as she unhides the hidden columns, certain data fields get wiped out... deleted. Then, she has to retype them. There are no macros or VBA scripts programmed in this workbook, and no wierd formulas I've seen that would potentially do this. Is this possibly an Excel bug???

A:Solved: Excel - IF B1 contains one of 32 values (drop down) perform a different formu

I don't quite get your question, But, you could test the following:
You should change the contents of your columns E through AJ and just fill in the numbers 1 through 32, Change the cell attributes to ro custom to read the following: "Week "0 this will display the contents as Week 1 but it is stille a number
In B1 do the same so that this is also a number but dispalyed as whatever you choose,
The formula in C2 shoud then read =IF(B2="","",$B$1/16) and if you copy the formula down the calculation will always be based on the contents of B1
I hope this is what you wanted.

The number of countries is fixed, but the number of cities within each country varies. i'd like to make 2 combo boxes, one in which you select the country, and then the next where you select the city within that country.
eg, if you select "B-Land" in the first combo box, your choices in the second combo box should be "b-ville, b-town, other". i can eliminate the zero's with a pivot table that does not count 0's.

I don't know any VB.

Thank you.

I have 2 worksheets A and B. A contains a standard list in column F. The number of rows in column F is variable.

I need to compare this standard list against a list in column C in worksheet B using VBA. If items from standard list appears in worksheet B, I need to colour the cell red. However, the list in column B does not always start from the same and end at the same rows. I determine the start row from its title, which is 'ID'.

I have difficulty in setting the range and comparing the list.

Appreciate any help with this.

Thank you.

Hi, I have 2 lists of numbers in excel, both lists are about 40000 long each. I need to see how many records match and see what ones are unmatched?

Does anyone know of an easy way to do this? Have tried 'IF' but could only make it check individual cells rather than the whole list?

Hi guys,

Is it possible to hide certain columns in a worksheet? (Excel 97 on Win98se). We have a spreadsheet that has columns A-G then BF-BJ, then BM-BR. The person that created the spreadsheet is on vacation this week, so we can't talk to them. The person using the spreadsheet now, says there is more information that is needed to get this information currently on the spreadsheet. Is it a reach to think that there may be more info in possibly hidden columns? Aside from renaming columns, is there any other way that someone would go straight from G to BF?

Thanks a lot for the help!

I have some data on Excel. Address numbers are in one column and the street names are in another column. Is there a way I can copy all the information in one column (address numbers) and merge it into another column (street names)?

A:Excel Columns

if the address numbers are in a1 and the street name is in b1, paste =A1& " " &B1 in c1. This will place the number and address in c1.

I have lost some items from my start menu or the one that pops up when you hit 'start' at bottom left of screen.
I have lost the menu item 'recent documents, and have lost the drop-down menus from both the items, 'My Documents' and 'Control panel'. The 'recent documents' also had a drop down menu.
The drop down menu used to appear where the arrow is, in the picture I have included with this post and also to the right of the menu item 'control panel'
Here's a picture

Many thanks

Hello! Anyone know how to do this without VBA?:

In Excel 2007, one spreadsheet with columns of item names and prices. You enter a person's name in the third column (the "buyer"). A separate worksheet magically (okay, a formula of some sort ) looks up the buyer of your choosing (from an absolute cell reference, I'd imagine? Or some other sneaky way?) and lists in new blank rows each item and price that they've purchased. Like an invoice.

I hope I've made sense. Any ideas?

Please assist me; I'm faced with a real challenge: My customer's SAP system generates stock lists that I need for reconciliations etc. Unfortunately the format of the SAP reports makes it hard to use the data in them - each record consists of 4 rows: 3 with data plus one blank!
I have attached a file that shows this. The total number of records is around 3,000; I cannot handle this task manually.
Does anyone know how I can reformat the SAP report to something that Excel can work with, i.e. 1 row per record?
All tips are deeply appreciated!

Has anyone ever encountered missing columns in Excel? I received an Excel file from a co-worker and the columns are lettered from A to H, then L, then from T on. I have never seen a spreadsheet with missing columns before. I am having problems printing the spreadsheet because it cuts off after the L column. My guess is that there is a page bread in one of the missing columns. Can anyone help me with this?

A:Missing Columns in Excel

Click on the top left box, where the rows and columns meet. That should select everything. Then right click on one of the rows or columns and choose unhide rows/columns. That's it
