Let’s say you have codes that have differing numbers of characters and you need to analyse them based on how many characters a code has. There is one function that can SUM and COUNT based on the number of characters in a code.
Let’s assume you have three state codes and four department codes and you want to create a table of all the possible 12 combinations (3 x 4). How do you do it so that it is flexible? i.e. if you add a new state or department it must be easy to update the combination table.
The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.
Excel will automatically decrease the print zoom % to fit to one page, but it won’t increase the zoom % to fit to one page. E.g. if you want to print on A3 instead of A4. I had a request to do this, so I wrote a macro to do it.
Filtering blanks made easy
In Excel the “Blanks” option is usually at the bottom of the list. This slows down selecting it.
If you have a lot of entries you need to scroll all the way down to bottom of the list to choose it – see image below.
But the word “Blanks” is searchable, so if you type b in the Search box – your work is done – no scrolling required – see image below.
If your column contains text you might need to type in bla.
