    Question Mark

    any one knows which formula adds a autofill filter in a cell, for example when going in a cell a drop down menu apears and gives some values.

    To do autofilter on a column, select the column, go to the data menu, then Filter, then tick AutoFilter.


    To have a drop-down list for allowable values in a cell, go the the data menu, select validation, and select List, and choose a range of cells where the list values are held (usually hidden in the main spreadsheet somewhere)

    No probs..

    I just normally choose an unused column for those values, and then opt to hide that whole column.

    I'm not sure what he's on about. To hide a column, you don't need to protect the sheet. Just select the whole column, click on format, then column, then hide...

    ...and you are correct, not much of a quiz was it?

    hey one more question
    how to convert an amount(number) to text.
    eg:
    1234
    one thousand two hundred thirty four

    i tried a formula called BAHTTEXT, its supposed to do the job but the language is diffrent, help page says i must change the reginal option in Cp but i cant find a usefull thing there.

    edit:
    got it again
    excel doesnt have this function on its on but with some add ons do it, also there is a script from MS which do this thing but its costumize for dollar only like it has cent and dollar word in it.

    edit:
    Fixed the Currency problem also.
