I love Excel... when I know what I'm doing

ExcelFilter: I have Worksheet1 and Worksheet2. Both worksheets contain PersonName on the X-axis, ClassName on the Y-axis. I need to run some comparison between the two. Thinking of doing this on a 3rd worksheet. Here's where it gets tricky: 1. There are several thousand PersonNames. 2. There are about 100 CourseNames. 3. There is volatility in the PersonNames and CourseNames; they will be constantly changing, especially, the PersonNames. [more inside]

I have an excel sheet with the past ten years' worth of donors for a PAC. Currently Column A is a donor and Column B is a donation. Some of these donors have donated multiple times, so their names come up several times on column A. I want to set up the spreadsheet to automatically look for matching names, and then add up the amounts in column B and give me a total in column C. How to do please.

Can excel save me money?

In Excel (or Google Docs) is there away to divide the value in a cell by the number of cells selected? So if I have a value of x and I then highlight 10 cells, each of the 10 cells would show x divided by 10. As I select less cells, the value in each cell increases because x is being divided by less. The main reason I want to do this is to show how much I'd need to save per month to reach a specific total.

Copying Word tables into Excel without splitting cells into multiple rows

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?
