Starting with XL2007 you can only have the name of the function displayed.
With earlier version , you would need "Microsoft HTML Help Workshop" in order to create an .CHM file (HTML pages gathered into a unique help file).
Once this is done, you need to associate your UDF...
Not sure why you want to convert a formula to text, but have you tried these steps ?
1/ select the cell containing the formula,
2/ Press F2
3/ At the beginning of the text before the = sign, type ' and press return...
I've seen your post which is nice as always, but as I mentioned above, I cannot use macros (users are just way too afraid of them) just because of the "alert" popup asking to activate content.
They think that there is a virus or some threat so they always close the document...
MAybe you can refer to the following posts from Chandoo :
Inside it you'll find useful links to Timeline and other dashboard items
But I doubt you'll cope with this in a week or two. At least a draft of it would be done.
Hope this help
I cannot acces your files (blocked by proxy at work), but I assume you will need a helper column in your reference data sheet. This column will count the occurrence the pair club/player already appeared above in the list. Let me illustrated this :
.| A B...
I've encountered another problem, since I wanted several sheets to have the validation lists mentionned above.
Data validation lists don't accept references to other sheets. I've used Named ranges (3 of them, something bearable for my end-users, they won't even know about them...
>Luke M : MAny thanks for your help. Unfortunately my end-user didn't understood "Named Ranges" (too complex for him). So I changed for the following :
C D E F G H ...
1 A1 A1B1 A1B2 A1B3
This is much more interesting for me. I like the idea of grouping horizontally the item for A and vertically the item for B.
But 2 remarks :
1/ I guess B1 and B2 under A1 are useless
2/ If I have A2 and A3 to fill, I would put them on new rows.
First of all many thanks to you all,
> Narayan, Since these lists are to be used into a long list of use cases, it seems to me difficult to adapt helper columns to each row, but who knows ?
The only solution I found is to add an helper refernce table containing only the first 2 columns...
Two ways to do so :
1/ Use the Macro recorder (Menu Developer/Record Macro), once started do exactly what you described.
Then press ALT+F11, search from module1 you'll see the VBA code of this macro.
2/ With the Range object, assuming you want to insert X lines below...
I've used the tip shown in a great Chandoo post here
I wanted 3 columns instead of 2.
I've managed to create the data validation formula for the 3rd column, but I've noticed that the 2nd one contains multiple identical lines.
How can I remove all these lines from this second...
I want to use a mixer Bar/Area graph to show the budget/consumption progression over time.
I have the following table :
month Actual Cumulative
Jan 2 =IF(RC[-1]=""; ""; RC[-1]+R[-1]C) ==> 2
Feb 3 =IF(RC[-1]=""...
Another trick is to use 5 column, and concatening with CONCAT() all the previous columns the latest will containt "C" mhen the job is done
A B C D E F G
1 2 3 - - C =CONCAT(A2:F2) ===> give "123--C"
I used to do so, but the formulas didn't update when I added a column and suppressed some lines as they were supposed to do.
So I switched to relatives ones, with the same result.
Have you ever encountered something like this ?
Here are the screenshots
I'm a bit afraid with this one.
In a shared workbook, I've defined a bunch of names, refering to columns in some sheets.
When I open the file, the names refers to the values I've entered.
When I click on a tab sheet, the references changes to something wrong.
