Reply from Alex Hedley:

What is 2017? The year you have in your spreadsheet or the version of Excel.
Depending on how you have constructed your formula it can be used for different years.

Ribbon Options Comment from LYNDA WAGGONER @ 12/27/2016
I too am noticing I don't have all the options in the ribbon that is shown in the video. Don't have a Table Style Options group at all. Do I need to do some customization in my ribbon settings?

Which version of Access are you running?
Are you on Office 365?

New Record Comment from Rajiv Dass @ 11/20/2015
Hi Richard, you lost me in lesson 6 Tables (10:18) after inputting record #9 for Michele Jones, row 10 for Total you had "0" automatically and the only way I was able to get the same result was to select the lower right corner and pull it down. at the end of the video after selecting "Total Row" in "Table Tools Design" tab I had a little difficulty in inserting a new record because I did not have the empty row above the "Total Row" row.

Reply from Alex Hedley:

If it's a list/table pressing tab on the last row should insert a new row.

States Abbreviated Comment from Rajiv Dass @ 11/20/2015
I know it is just for illustrative purposes but in lesson 6 of Excel 2010 Beginner 4 (02:42) there are no states abbreviated as "HT & ON".

Reply from Alex Hedley:

As you say it's just an example, it doesn't need to be accurate.

Your Pie chart in lesson 5 13 00 Comment from Rajiv Dass @ 11/20/2015
Your Pie chart in lesson 5 (13:00) at the end. Your labels do not match the percent on the pie.  Mike is 2% with the blue slice of the pie and Ted is 92% which is the color orange of the pie.  Sorry, I am not being picky.  If all of my teachers taught as you, I would be greater than Einstein!

Reply from Alex Hedley:

Sue has a line coming off with 6%

Mike 2%  Blue
Ted 92% Orange
Sue 6%   Pink
Total: 100%

Excel 2013 Table Tools Comment from Jodi Grunewald @ 1/22/2014
Hi Richard, I am doing this class using Excel 2013 and I am not finding "Table Tools" tab or a "Total Row" choice.  Was this moved in 2013 version? (I made sure I was clicked right in the table but nothing shows up?) (time index 17:04)

Reply from Richard Rost:

I just tried it and it worked fine for me in Excel 2013. Insert > Table. Then then TABLE TOOLS / DESIGN tab appears. Total Row is one of the checkboxes on that tab. If you click OUTSIDE the table, that option goes away. Remember, the Ribbon is CONTEXT SENSITIVE, so you'll only see options available for the objects that are currently selected / in use.

Wrong pie slice Comment from Laurie Jones @ 4/11/2013
Just so you are aware, at counter 13:14, Ted, with 92%, should be on the orange part of the pie, not Mike with only 2%.

Reply from Richard Rost:

Yep. Looks like Excel mangled my chart. I didn't even notice it at the time I was recording it. You can see it at time index 12:40 (13:14 is the total time of the video). Ted got stuck way up top and it looks like Mike is in the big part. Oops. Thanks for bringing this up.

Ribbon Acting Strange Comment from Alexandria Hutchinson @ 3/25/2013
Question...Excel 2010 Beginner 4
Charts 4, Charts tool, Layout, Current Selection, Chart area. When I click on 'chart title' my ribbon area switches to "Home" and not Chart area. When I click on my 'Axis Title'my ribbon area switches to "Home"again. I am mirroring what you are doing and I still get something totally different

Reply from Richard Rost:

I'd have to see this in action to tell you what's going wrong. I've never experienced this behavior before. If you want to contact me via the TechHelp page and send me a screen grab of what's going on, I might be able to help.

if you move a chart to a new page is it still effected by the theme of the page its data is on?

Reply from Richard Rost:

Yes. When you select a THEME, it affects EVERY sheet in the workbook. Changing it affects every worksheet.

Is there any way to use the same chart in more then one sheet without having to make the chart again?

Reply from Richard Rost:

No way that I can think of.
