Escape from Excel Hell: Fixing Problems in Excel 2003, 2002, 2000by Loren Abdulezer
Synopses & Reviews
When Excel talks back to you, here's what to do
You try to open a spreadsheet and Excel won't let you, because there's a macro involved. You cannot convince the software that the macro is safe. You hurl something across the room.
Grab this book instead! You'll find more than 200 fixes for things that drive Excel users crazy, organized and identified for easy access. More than 100 problems can be solved in anywhere from 30 seconds to two minutes. If you're a more advanced user, turn to Part III, where you'll find the more elaborate escapes.
When all you want is to make your spreadsheet work so you can finish your project, here's all you need. Oh, and the macro problem? Check Chapter 1.

Book News Annotation:
Technology consultant Abdulezer troubleshoots some 200 problems commonly encountered when working with spreadsheets. The problems are arranged into three basic categories: those that can be solved in less than 30 seconds, those requiring a few minutes more, and those that will likely take more than ten minutes to fix. A searchable version of the text is found on the accompanying CD-ROM, along with Excel spreadsheet examples, and Crystal Xcelsius Professional software.
