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.

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?

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.
