## How to jump to another Excel worksheet?

[Excel 2007 filter] Is it possible to input some text into a cell, e.g. "Click here for Worksheet 2" or similar, and create a hyperlink on that cell to open, uh, Worksheet 2? In the same window, not a new instance. Neither a search of AskMe and/or the Excel help-screens has been successful. Thanks in advance.

## Converting lots of little excel into word?

ExcelFilter: I have a whole bunch of excel files. More than 100 of them. Each file has about one page of print area, but some in portrait and others in landscape. They are mostly text in cells; not a lot of formulas being used. I would like to (1) merge all these files into one Word document; (2) have a page break so that each file (more or less) is one page; and (3) do it with a minimum of cutting and pasting. Opening everything as a PDF and viewing in Preview is also an option, but less optimal since I'll certainly need to adjust some formatting and page breaks. Maybe on publisher? Is anything like this possible? Or do I need to do it page-by-page? What would you do? I'm on a Mac 10.8.2.

## In Excel, getting the MEDIAN of a set based on a text pattern match

In Excel, I have two columns. Column A has many rows of names (e.g., Mary, Maryjane, Maryanne, Anne, Jane) and in Column B I have their ages (e.g., 4, 20, 40, 10). I would like to find the MEDIAN age of all the "mary's"; i.e., both "mary" and "maryanne", etc.
Is this possible? I have been getting errors on variations of {=MEDIAN(IF(A1:A4="*mary*",B1:B4))} constructions...
I do not want to use VBA.
thank you!

## What's the quickest way to code this data?

I have an Excel spreadsheet with just over 3000 sentences in column A. I need to go through looking at each one and entering some data into columns B-F. The first thing I have to enter is whether the sentence is in the past tense or present tense. If it is past tense, I can ignore it and not have to enter anything in columns C-F. I just move on to the next sentence. Is it going to be quicker if I go through the whole spreadsheet filling out column B first (past/present) and then do a second pass to fill out the rest of the details for the present tense sentences, or quicker to do it all at once for each sentence? Or is it a wash? [more inside]

## excel income tax calc help

Excel help: I'm trying to input a dollar value into a cell and have the output be the federal income tax for that amount (just using the brackets). Federal income tax is calculated such that the first x dollars are taxed at rate R, the next y dollars are taxed at rate S, and up through several different rate brackets. I can do this calculation with a simple IF statement using multiple cells by summing the result of 5 separate bracket calculations. I'm not sure if I can cram it into one giant formula. Suggestions?

## How can I separate this data column properly?

Question about splitting data into columns: I have one column of data that I'd like to split into seven separate columns. A typical, complete row in the column looks like "mefi:1,ask:3,meta:2,projects:5,jobs:5,music:6,irl:4" where the number values can be anywhere from 1-6. The problem is that if any one or more of the seven subsites are left unanswered, the entire value is missing (there is no "[subsite]:0" or "," as a placeholder). Consequently, separating the column into seven distinct columns using the comma as the separator causes the data to fall/shift into the wrong output columns if any one or more of the seven subsite categories are missing. How can i fix this? [more inside]

## How do I save to a text file in Excel 2011?

I'm on a mac. A colleague sent me an Excel file (.xls) which I looked at in Excel 2011. It looks fine. I would like to save the file in some sort of text format, so that I can open Terminal and look at it in less. I realize that the columns won't align nicely, that's fine. What I don't want are all the weird characters that show up (from differently formatted line endings, etc). I've tried saving as "Tab delimited text," but that has the problem with the line endings. Which format should I use?
