I'm just a random guy from Newfoundland, Canada. I'm a dab hand at excel and damn near nothing else; but in my defense, I do tend to only ask the same question once... mebe twice... okay, I also lie a lot. I now have vista and am quite happy with myself since I've easily added the "Run" command to my startup menu, but have now exhausted my intellect. This computer stuff is WAAAAAY harder than my Nortel recruiter led me to believe (I was applying for the job as the janitor). I only hope that you folk will be as patient with me as my dearly departed mother was (she died two years before I was born but everyone tells me she was a fine figure of a woman and a good damn cook to boot (funnily enough she died that way when a cook tripped and booted her in the head (too bad he didn't reboot her, (she was that good, apparently)))).

DAGNABBIT! Now I've gone and lost track of alla the paranthesiousees. Sorry about the errors in this workbook. But to be quite frank, it's obvious that you don't use data validation and so have entered erroneous data in the cell to begin with. You're now on yer own.

Yours Truly,

Hello Dave and welcome to Bleeping Computer.

Please take the time, to browse the New User Orientation forum, to help familiarize yourself with how the board works.

Also, don't forget to check out the Tutorials.
There's a lot of very useful information, in there.

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
