Follow me on:


I have provided first hand support since `95 for Microsoft Office majoring in Word and Excel - support for all versions from 2 onwards. I'm based in the UK, so please allow for time differences when asking me questions from other parts of the world!

Experience in the area

My background is in the insurance industry and call centre areas, but have been called upon to provide many varied solutions.


I'm educated to UK A level standard, but as I left school some 30 years ago that is rather irrelevent - university of life has provided more of a background!

2016-10-16 Sorting:

This is one of those "I don't think I'd have done it that way" questions, in that by having all the data on one tab, it would PROBABLY be easier to summarise - I would be inclined to summarise using pivot

2016-09-27 Excel:

I'd probably do this with a lookup table due to the number of possibles, but the rules aren't quite clear as you've shown what appears to be 4 hours 25 minutes and 40 seconds as being less than 2 hours

2016-09-21 SUMIFS Problem:

I tend to use Pivot Tables to sum such data, but excel has no problem with a SumIfs with a date - it's jus that you have to remember that a date is simply a number - so    =SUMIFS(D2:D21,A2:A21,"Bill"

2016-09-05 Lookup table and return value:

a little messy I'm afraid    =OFFSET(OFFSET($A$2,0,MATCH(Sheet1!C7,$B$2:$E$2,0)),MATCH(VLOOKUP(Sheet1!E7,OFFSET($A$2:$A$9,0,MATCH(Sheet1!C7,$B$2:$E$2,0)),1,TRUE),OFFSET($A$2:$A$9,0,MATCH(Sheet1!C7,$B$2:$E$2

2016-08-19 Periodic table data in Excel software.:

This is a very subjective question I imagine - I'm not a scientist, so having the periodic table available would be of no use to me - but possibly to others it would be of use - should you need one,  http://www
