I've spent the past day or so trying to figure out how to calculate a hidden value in my data. It varies linearly with time, or closely enough that we can make that assumption within any given dataset.

The data is collected in a C# program and processed in Excel; an Excel function would be the ideal solution. [more inside]
Our lab uses Excel to record vital data about the participants in our studies. We usually record a date of birth and the date a child was run in separate cells. However we've had no luck creating a formulatthat calculates the person's age (in months, or in years;months) based on those two other cells. As a result of having to do it by hand, errors often occur. Ideally, I'd like to customize how rounding happens, but at this point I'll take what I can get.

Hi, hoping some MS Excel or HTML wizards can help me out with this. The goal is as follows; format a list of domain names so I can publish them on a webpage with hyperlinks to their individual addresses (currently they are all in Excel with each domain occupying a single cell in a single row; they are currently formatted like this: "domain.com"). There are just to many to go through and add this to each one. [more inside]
