Excel Facts

Formula for Yesterday
Name Manager, New Name. Yesterday =TODAY()-1. OK. Then, use =YESTERDAY in any cell. Tomorrow could be =TODAY()+1.

Wow yes I love these. But that is the first time since I have been here that someone has blatantly put a numbered list up with fill in the blanks and all. It amazes me at some people. But does lead to a good chuckle for the day.

Heck, the original post was a straight forward request for help, from someone who hadn't read this board's policy towards homework (actualy, I think that "take home final" would be a better description.).

I wonder whether the selection committee is looking for an improvement in his Excel skills or his people skills.

Maybe now we can have some fun with a board challenge and fill in the answers. Although I'd hate to "accidentally" put in the wrong ones. ;)

Oh, thanks for those. I've slowly been building up a repository of "what not to do posts" for my research. There's a lot of good or typical examples here but I seldom see "bad" ones. :biggrin:

To be fair, he did title his post "I need a lot of help". This clearly refers to his inability to read simple instructions. Or use Google. Or press F1 after opening Excel.

That was fantastic. Thanks for pointing it out :)

I'd be very concerned about whoever put those together. I mean...

Excel will allow you to embellish your charts with clip art

I've no idea? Why would you try? I'd crucify anyone who tried to 'improve' one of my charts by adding clipart to it.

My old boss used to think it was almost essential to replace the bars in a chart with 'topical' clip art. One of his favourites was the annual travel to work survey that had pictures of car/bike/train/bus instead of bars on all the charts he could.
