Make a Christmas Card, and you can win a $50 Gift Card

Christmas is my favorite festival. It has certain magical feel to it. This year, it is going to be even more special, because we have 2 more hilarious, lovely people to share our joy with, not to mention over 16,000 of you to celebrate it with.

So naturally, I was excited when Fred suggested that we have a contest on this in our forums. So here we go.

What you need to do?

Simple. Make a Christmas greeting card (or any of your favorite festival’s greeting card) using Excel.

How to submit your greeting card for the contest?

Just upload your card to a public file sharing site like skydrive. Or, email it to me with the subject “Christmas Card Contest”. My address is chandoo.d @ gmail.com

What will you get?

You will get a $50 Amazon gift card if your entry is selected as a winner. I have 2 gift cards to giveaway.

Rules & Fine Print:

  • Contest is closes on 13th December Midnight Pacific Time.
  • You can submit multiple entries.
  • Make flashy, jazzy cards using animation, chart effects, cell formatting or whatever fun thing you want.
  • Your contest entries will be posted on chandoo.org for anyone to download and play with.
  • Winners will be selected by me. (I would love to have a poll, but I also want to send the gift card before Christmas. And polls take time, so…)
  • Go!

Extract words from sentence using FILTERXML - formula tip

#awesome trick – Extract word by position using FILTERXML()

This is CRAZY!!!. I stumbled on a weird use for FILTERXML() while reading a forum post earlier today. So I couldn’t wait to test it. I am happy to share the results.

Say you have some text (sentence / phrase / keyword etc.) in a cell and you want to extract the nth word. Unfortunately Excel doesn’t have SPLIT() formula. So we end up writing obscenely long array formulas or use gazillion helper columns.

Here is the super sneaky trick. Use FILTERXML() instead.
