I started a job back in February at a school that requires a lot of student tracking. When I first started the position, I knew so little about excel I wondered what use it could serve over Word.
Fortunately, between a manual conveniently on my workstation,reading forums such as this, and a summer course on computer information systems, I went from being clueless to utilizing VBA code(just a little) in a 6 month period (I'm a little proud of myself). I am now the excel guru for my office, and I've been having a lot of fun (as far as work goes) creating templates that both automate information and eliminate (okay, reduce) user error.
I joined this forum because I had a question that had been plaguing me for a week, and in a last minute check to see if the question had already been asked and answered, I found the answer in a completely unrelated question. Turns out, merged cells can cause weird problems.
