Unfortunately, this answer is half right -- there are many workSHEET password

A tool for workBOOK password removal or retrieval isn't easy to find.

Suggestions welcome.

Hello excel Guru's

I have a hyperlink that changes value based on the criteria in other cells.

I would like a macro that opens the hyperlink that is located in cell F3

I on occation the value of the hyperlink is greater then 255 so on those occations I want to open the file name that is compiled in H3

and then do the same for F4 and H4.

I already have a macro for saving these files with specific names so that I can harvest the data into a master sheet I just cant work out how to open a workbook when the name is stated in a cell.

I am on XL 2003




Thought would ad the code I have tried so you can see what I am on about

Workbooks.Open Filename:=F3
ActiveWindow.Visible = False
Application.Run "SaveCompare2"

Hello people,

First time around here. I am not sure I'm on the right newsgroup, so please
redirect me if needed.

Here's my question: I need to be able to search a string from the right in
an Excel-cell. Basically I need to find the last space in a string. I can
find the first space in a string with the find-command but that works only
from left to right. How can I do this from right to left ?

Many thanks,


I thought that a nested if is what I needed, but now I don't know what I need I have explained in greater detail within my sample that's attached.

I don't know how to write a function for what I need.
Right now I have a function that says '= if $b7=0,0,if($d7>$d5,-1,1)), but I've found a problem.
If there's more than one zero it throws off what I'm doing.
I need a function that will ignore any zeros within column D and use the second to last number.

For example:

The formula in E12 should read '=if($B12=0,0,if($D12>$D8,-1,1))
The formula in E13 should read '=if($b13=0,0,if($D13>$D9,-1,1))
The formula in E20 should read '=if($b20=0,0 ,if($d20>$d12,-1,1))

I just don't know how to write this so that it will go back to the second to last number other than zero.
