Hi Gang, Slightly askew but perhaps not completely off-topic since a number of Excel questions _do_ surface here from time to time. My old buddy, TechTV (Canada) star, and author of multiple Excel books; Bill Jelen, is offering the latest edition of his 'Learn Excel from MrExcel' book as a free no-registration-required (16Mb) pdf download. Bill is a genuinely good guy. I own dead tree copies of a couple of his books, including the last edition of this one.  It's a very useful book. I know Excel pretty well and I still picked up a couple of new tricks that I actually use every day -- not wacky once in a blue moon kind of things. Here is the link: http://www.mrexcel.com/preview12097.html >>Why am I giving away the book? It is great marketing. >>99% of the people will use the tips in the book and 1% >>will actually buy the print copy of the book. I get the >>advantage of selling more print books and knowing that a >>lot of people are having less frustration with Excel. >>It is a win-win all around. HTH, RonL.  Yes, I *did* pay. Well, I expensed it back to my employer. That's the same thing, right?
