7/5     Excel 2000 question: is there a way to shrink a worksheet to
        print on only 1 page - but by adjusting only 1 dimension - i.e. i
        want the width shrunk down but i don't want the height shrunk?
        thanks.

        floating point numbers, such that it only tells me if there's a
        difference if the numbers on a given line differ by at least a given
        ratio?  Say, 1%?

11/7    If I don't need to print for a few months, do I need to keep adding
        new ink to inkjet printers to prevent them from drying and clogging
        heads? Or will it just magically work once I add in new ink
        in a few months?
        \_ The nozzles will clog. Print a test sheet every couple weeks.

8/28    Hi, anybody printed a photo image to a big plotter?  Something like
        36"x36"?  I'm wondering how many megapixels the image need to
        have in order for the print to "look good".  There is a rule of
        thumb?  Like 6 megapixel is good for X size print.  10 megapixel
        is good for Y size print.  Thanks.
        \_ You don't need that many more megapixels for much bigger prints,

1/5     I'm an Excel novice who needs help. Let us say I have a column of
        data A. I then take the absolute value of A1 and enter it in B1:
        (B1=ABS(A1)). All is good. My problem is when I want to delete
        Column A, Column B is still referencing A. How do I tell Excel to
        stop referencing the source data and instead let me have the
        result standalone? I don't want to keep A around anymore, but I

7/13    In Excel, is it possible to average every 24th column in a particular
        row.  I googled this and found http://www.exceltip.com/st/Calculating_the_Average_Value_in_Every_Nth_Column,_Excluding_Zeros%09/862.html
        though I can't get it to work.  In my spreadsheet, I have
        =AVERAGE(IF((MOD(COLUMN(C156:CP156)-CELL("col",C156),24)=0),C156:CP156))
        It makes sense, but won't work.  It seems to do the if logic only

5/15    MS Excel question: I have a moderately large sheet with one column
        filled with entries that are in this form: "num; stuff", meaning
        it's a number followed by a semicolon followed by anything. Is there
        a way to split up this column into 2, with the first containing
        the number and the second containing everything after the semicolon?
        Thanks.
