Does anyone read books?
If I were new to a subject, I would read a book about it and practice the
exercises, rather than ask simple questions like: "How do I add the value in cell A1 to the value in cell A2 and put the result in cell A3?". Excel is like algebra. After discovering the solution to the equation 4x+1 = 9, (answer: x = 2), by asking someone else, did you learn how to derive the answer by yourself and will you always continue to ask for help rather than getting a book on the subject, be it Excel or algebra, and learn by reading? Or is that too difficult? I see so often, "I just got Excel, but I'm not willing to read and learn so I'll ask others." Got news for you. That approach will not work; you won't learn much about Excel or anything else for that matter. Have fun. . We all have questions about things such as Excel or algebra. It's just that some of us try to rely upon ourselves before asking others, whereas some just say: someone else will provide the answer. To those of you brand new to Excel, I recommend books such as: For absolute newbies: Excel 2003 Step by Step (ISBN: 0735615187) or Excel 2007 Step by Step (073562304X) both $24.99 at Barnes and Noble Beyond newbie: Excel 2003 Bible (ISBN: 0764539671) or Excel 2007 Bible (ISBN: 0470044039) both $39.99 at Barnes and Noble Excel 2003 Inside Out (ISBN: 073561511X) or Excel 2007 Inside Out (ISBN: 073562321X) both $44.99 at Barnes and Noble. Just a thought. May your days be kind to you. Regards, Dave

I do, I read books, mostly medical books. Dave do you read medical books?
Cause then maybe you could either treat youself if you got sick Usually a bad thing) or realize just how complicated medicine is even with the books. For some of us excel is like that  complicated even with a book. Therefore we rely on those good souls, expert in their field to easily and accurately assess, diagnose, and treat our problems. I also use search and that in itself is often the cliff notes of what one needs to answer the question at hand.

Do not begin the compare Excel with medicine. Excel is a tool. Not a
science. I am amazed that if you are learned in medicine, you would not recognize a tool and not a science. I think you are not what you claim to be. "Kazdagi" .(donotspam) wrote in message ...
