Excel Links and news

There has been so much Excel and Office related info come over my desk the last couple of weeks I don't have time to do it all justice, but I will try and share it with you in an organised way as possible.

Office 2007 and earlier

Excel Create conditional drop-down lists. In Excel 2007 (and earlier), it’s possible to create a drop-down list. By using the INDIRECT function, you can then create additional drop-down lists that are conditional to the first drop-down list.

From J-Walk, run some code that runs 1 million random numbers and see how fast your computer is compared with others.

The week in review

I don’t know why I seem to write massive link posts lately – maybe because i have been very busy with my three major priorities, family, work and photography. However this is a priority as well, so I need to allocate some time to write soon. In the mean time I am going to clear my browser of the tabs that are open there.

When Excel 2003 doesn't display data and Excel 2010 information

I came across an interesting issue yesterday. I found a limit that I was previously unaware of in Excel 2003.

ExcelI had written some code that was taking data from a large data set into an array, filtering for some specific information and writing the results to another array. Then I was attempting to paste that array data into a range in the spreadsheet as a report. All was working well until I selected one specific set of inputs and ran the report. Suddenly it stopped pasting halfway though the paste. That is it would paste some of the data and not the rest and the code would break on the paste function. After some analysis I determined that the particular cell it kept breaking on had 1400 characters in it. Some research on Google helped. I discovered two things.
