Comment from Richard Jordan @ 7/19/2010
In a column of the Dow Averages or Daily Volume, how can conditional formatting be used to note a change in direction; i.e., a number higher - say green - or lower - say red, and also a third color to show a new high has been reached.  Then how to set these up to operate continuosly?  I can do some of this but not all, and am unable to drag settings so once set up no daily input is required.  Please help.

Reply from Richard Rost:

Unless you've got a separate cell indicating this change, you can't do this with simple conditional formatting. Once a value is updated, Excel has no idea what the old value in the cell is... without some VBA programming.

How do I import single bits of data? I want to import NYSE volume into one cell and have it up date automatically. The URL I use is http://online.wsj.com/mdc/public/page/2_3021-tradingdiary.html?mod=topnav_2_3000.  Please comment.

Reply from Richard Rost:

Richard, the easiest way to handle this situation is to just import the entire table of data into a "scratch" sheet, and then copy/paste-link the cell data that you want into another sheet. This way you can pick and choose the bits of information that you want in your REAL sheet.

EXCEL 2007 Upgrade from EXCEL 2002 Comment from Richard Rost @ 11/11/2009
Richard, I didn't have any problems at all installing Office 2007. You can have your 2002 and 2007 together on the same PC if you'd like (just pick a different install folder).

To date I haven't found a single one of my spreadsheets that doesn't work in 2007, so I'm very happy with it. Like I said in the video, there really isn't anything EARTH SHAKING that you have to get that's in Excel 2007, except once you get used to it, the Ribbon really does make working in Excel easier (I was resistant at first). Plus, if you like making PRETTY charts and use a lot of images, that has really been enhanced.

How difficult is it to load from 2002 to 2007?  Does your tutorial include this info?  Since you reccomend it I suppose you have included it but would like to read your comments before ordering. Please enlighten me!  Thanks.
