this is probably really simple when you know how but... what symbol means not equal to in excel as i have never known and often find myself having to make a long winded formula to get around a simple symbol!!!

How do you create the 'up to but not including' symbol? The symbol I'm on about can be found here -

It is the symbol in the third formula down. I don't mind if another symbol has a similar effect built looks nothing like it. Can you insert such a symbol into Excel?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello. I have end of day data downloaded and copied into Excel like
this :

Column A Column B Column C Column D
(symbol) (Price) (symbol) (symbol)
(day 1) (day 1) (day 2) (day 2)
Abb 20.25 Aay 45.20
Acc 25.20 Abb 22.25
Adm 10.20 Acc 26.20

What I want done ?

1. You see that there are four unique symbols from both Column A and
Column C.
2. Column A does not contain data for the symbol 'Aay'. Yet, it should
introduce it by comparing its own data with data in Column C.
3. Column B has no data for the symbol Aay. Yet, when the symbol Aay is
reinserted into Column A, Column B has to speak for the price and let
it be 'NA'.
4. Column C and D do not contain the data for the symbol Adm. Column C
should compare itself with Column A. The symbol Adm is unique for
Column A. This has to be introduced in Column C.
5. Column D has no data for the symbol Aay. Yet, when the symbol Adm is
reinserted into Column C, Column D has to speak for the price and let
it be 'NA'.

When complete, the data will look like this :

Column A Column B Column C Column D
(symbol) (Price) (symbol) (symbol)
(day 1) (day 1) (day 2) (day 2)
Aay NA Aay 45.20
Abb 20.25 Abb 22.25
Acc 25.20 Acc 26.20
Adm 10.20 Adm NA

All help greatly appreciated.


I have formulas typed in a single row as shown below

a1-bk1 b1-bl1 c1-bm1 ...

These are typed in columns a1 upto bj1.
The formulas typed in are more complex but all i need is a way to insert an equal to sign in front of each of these formulas from a1 to bj1.I think this can be done with a macro but dont know how.

So I need a macro which inserts an equal to(=) symbol before each of these formulas so that the formulas become valid.



Hi All,
I'm using a formula in conditional formatting to highlight cells values compared to a standard i.e. greater than or equal to or less than.
Most values will be straight numbers but others will be entered with a < symbol leading the number. The formatting I'm using is simple red green (red bad green good). The problem is when I enter a value with a < symbol the cell turns red.
All help greatfully accepted. Example attached.
Thank you.

Last year, I created a workbook with a web query where I set the parameter called "Symbol" to get the value of Symbol from a cell. I then have VBA code to refresh the data when the user clicks a button. Everything was working just fine. Then, all of a sudden, the refresh no longer works. When I look into the problem, I see that the website is not recognizing the parameter.

The query has the following URL:

As you can see, the part of the address where the symbol should be shows ["Symbol"]. As stated above, the value of symbol is in a cell and the parameters window shows the correct cell and there is a value in it. However, the website no longer appears to be filling in the value and I'm getting an error on the website stating:

\[\"SYMBOL\"\] is not a recognized symbol. Check the symbol and enter it again. If you don't know the symbol, use symbol lookup.

If I just put the symbol in the URL in place of ["Symbol"], I have no problems. I need to have the query be dynamic based on the cell value. What changed to suddenly have this no longer working when it was previously?

Hello Friends,

Please help !!


Does anyone know how I can make a cell in Excel 2003 or 2007 recognize automatically that I want a calculation done without having to start with a formula symbol or the '=' sign?
For example, if I start typing 24+12, excel should automatically calculate and return 36. Note I didnt start with the '=" or "+" symbol.
I have this working in one of the files I got from somewhere and it is not Excel version dependent as it seems to work from 2003 & 2007, however I cant do it on a new excel workbook, in either 2003 or 2007. Is there a switch to flick or something?
Appreciate any help possible

if thats not it, try this.

go to start -> run, type "charmap" without "" and browse for your symbol and
use the keystroke

I would like to embedd a symbol into a cell. I dont want it to be done by using Fonts. By symbol I mean Harvey Balls (Plan, Do, Check, Act) symbol embedded the same as the "and" (&) symbol. I have seen it done once on a spreadsheet but did not get a copy and I would like to recreate it as a way of visually showing the status of an action item.


Is there a quicker way to add symbols than clicking on Insert, then finding the symbol, then adding it? I'd like a row of buttons or something similiar that inserts the symbol I desire in just one click, if that's possible.

I have a the delta symbol....and i am trying to use vba to make this the header of one of my columns. any idea on how to do this?

Friends, (using Excel 2007, Win7)

I have a .csv file containing stock and option data. The file is HUGE. I need to create a much smaller file to work with. So here is the issue. The data has 4 columns:

1. Stock Symbol
2. Stock Price
3. Option Symbol
4. Option Price

The file has every ticker symbol in the stock market, AND every available option currently offered for that symbol.
For every symbol, I ONLY want the next current option with a strike price ABOVE the current stock price.

Example (after importing into excel)

Stock Stock Option Option
Symbol Price Symbol Price

A 31.74 ADY.x 27.5
A 31.74 ADF.x 30
A 31.74 ADZ.x 32.5
A 31.74 ADG.x 35
A 31.74 ADU.x 37.5

So in this case, seeing as the stock is currently at 31.74, I only want the 32.50 Option (3rd line) exported out to a new file.

How would I open a file for output, and only export those option rows that meet that criteria, and then close that file.

Thanks in advance. (did I explain this clearly... if not I apologize)

Can it be done ?
