# How do I multiply a unit measurement?

For example: 156 SQFT x \$10.00. Where 156 SQFT is all in a single cell.
Is there a way to ignore the alpha characters and only look at the numerical
characters in the formula? (Excell 2000)

Thanks,

### How do I "freeze" a formula?

How do I keep a formula from changing?
Just as a primitive example:
In cell A1 is the formula =B1
In cell B1 I write the word cat.
Now A1 will show the word cat.
So far, so good.
However, if I insert a column between A and B
the formula in A1 now shows =C1.
I want the formula in cell A1 to stay and continue saying =B1 after I insert a column.
Is it possible to "freeze" a formula.

How do I add a text box to show when a macro has been activated.

The macro is:

### How do I make a formula that is conditional

I am creating an excel file for employees to enter their time. I want to have a formula set up that will automatically total the number of hours spent on specific project categories. For example, cell C6 is a drop down list having multiple categories to choose from. Cell D6 is the total number of hours spent on that project. Cell C7 is a drop down list and D7 is the total number of hours, etc... How do I create a formula that will total only the total number of hours for a specific category selected in the drop down list?

For Example:

I don't know if this is possible, but I hope so! If I'm confusing, I apologize because I'm not well versed in computer terminology.
