stymied by excel

There has to be an answer for this, but I just can't figure it out. In Excel, I've got 5 columns (A-E). I need to return a list of values from column A if either column B or C equals 'foo', *and* if either column D or E equals 'bar'. What's the magical formula (or whathaveyou) that will make this happen? For bonus points, results need to appear on a separate tab than the source data. asking on behalf of mrs spinturtle, I personally have no idea what I'm talking about.

Excel date problem

RE: Excel: I have an Excel spreadsheet where one column is filled with dates — but the dates aren't showing up properly in the spreadsheet. Instead of looking like a date, they are flat numbers (02/29/2004 is rendered "36584" in the display) — even though the proper date is revealed in the FORMULA BAR as I select each cell. I've set the text type to DATE in the FORMAT dialog... I've even tried setting the text type to PLAIN TEXT. No go. Strangely, the numbers increment with the date (03/07/2004 is "36591"), so I'm guessing there's some equation going on. Suggestions on getting the dates to render properly would be appreciated.
