I need help copying a table from Word to Excel in Office 2007. Where there are hard returns within a cell in the Word table, Excel splits the table cell into multiple rows. I need Excel not to split cells in the Word table into multiple Excel rows. At the same time, I need to retain the paragraphs that appear within the Word table cells - that is, I can't just get rid of all those hard returns; the formatting must be preserved. My Google-fu is failing me rather seriously. Is there any way to do this?

I need this to look presentable for client purposes.

iPhoneAppFilter: I have an Excel document on my home computer that I would like to be able to open and edit on my iPhone while I'm out and about, on an ongoing basis. The catch: app needs to be able to handle "index" and "match" functions. Without this functionality, the app would be useless to me. List of previous disappointments: DropBox (can't edit), QuickOffice (interfaces with DropBox but can't do index/match functions), Calc Lite (can't open document). I have zero programming skills and not that much more cash. Is my dream app (or combination of apps) out there?

Well, I created a spreadsheet in Google docs. A simple, no frills document where there are various columns - one s for email addresses.
Those addresses I want to go into my Address book in either Gmail or Thunderbird. Downloaded the spreadsheet into Excel - in CSV format - tried to save it to text - it's obviously not working. Someone online directed me to the Google Scripts and to API.
This is so not my forte' and it's for a non-profit and am getting lost in a sea of geekage. Is there a simple way to just export the column of email addresses, convert them into a database separated by columns, fit for my email program?
Thanks in advance.

YTD total based on sum of last number in another row that has a value?
I need to sum up the values in one row based on the matching row below it. For example, if I have a target of $1000 a month, and I only have actual revenue numbers through June, I would like to calculate the year to date for the target from Jan to June. Once July numbers are put in, I'd want the YTD for the target to update to Jan to Jul.
I have tried a couple of variations on COUNT, INDEX and OFFSET.
Example is here: http://malcommc.com/ytd.xls

I have lists, in Excel spreadsheets, that contain perhaps 500 rows of data in three columns: Date, Time and Stock Ticker Symbol. I need a method to correlate those three things with unusual stock activity.
In other words, if column 1 is March 10, 2010, and column 2 is 10 a.m., and column three is INTC, I need to know if something unusual happened - high volume or big price movement - for INTC around 10 a.m. March 10.
Anyone know a program that'll do this?
