Excel Video Embedding Link 
Richard Lanoue 
3 months ago
I've had some luck embedding a video on spreadsheets.  Is there a way to control the dimensions?  If I anchor it to the very top of the columns, it looks small.  If I don't anchor it to the top, it's very big.  How can I get a medium size screen?

I'll be honest, I haven't done much with this. I've included LINKS to videos on YouTube in my spreadsheets before, but it seems like such an inefficient way to store video. Since most people are "connected" today, a link to a YouTube video works perfectly.

How are you embedding them? There are a couple of different methods.

I go into Developer the hammer Icon select Windows Media Player.  then choose properties within the frame and brows and select the file to play.  If I position the frame to the very top, it keeps it small but if i move it away from it, the video is big.  I want to embed these because the file are training videos on how we measure parts in manufacturing.  This would aid a tester for additional instructions.  You tube  would be unnecessary and unsecure.  I can do this in Access but i'd like to know how in Excel

I would like to know if you have templates for expert (1 - 11). I really enjoy your tutorials and wold like to follow along using templates that I can download.

Most of my Excel courses don't have spreadsheets because the point of the classes that you build the spreadsheet yourself instead of just looking at what I've built. You will retain information more that way. Plus none of the sheet we build in class are that complex (not like Access databases). What few classes do have spreadsheets can be found here: Student Excel Files.

Sorry about the spelling mistakes. I have cut a finger and typing with bandage.
In the file explorer I could only select 10 files and open them simultanious.

Funny story, microsoft helpdesk spend today about 2 hours on issues in Windows 10 and Office 365 (2019).
Outlook needed most of the time. Had to renew Windows 10 lisence and remove Office 2007 and Access 2010.
Allthough Office 2007 was removed while installing 365 some applications left traces.
Even Access 2010 conflict the Access 2019 version. At least at my PC.

Even my Access files which didn't open anymore are oening now without a message in Access 2019.

Sorry that I first consultat my specialist

VBA Converter Pack for Excel Link 
Eddy Geijselaers

Hello Richard,

My old Computers mainboard was getting deffect, so I had to buy I knew one (computer).
Recently I installed Office 2019..., guess you know what I gonna ask.
I still have old backups of Excel sheets with VBA code. For Office 2019 Microsoft has no VBA converter Pack (not yet anyway for the Netherlands) so the VBA code is deleted on opening in 2019. As one of your former students I have a backup of the original. Read More...

There's really not a lot you can do. I know there are third-party companies that have tools you can buy to extract the VBA from Excel workbooks. I've never used one myself, so I don't have one to recommend, but that's about the only advice I can give you.

New Excel STOCKHISTORY Function Link 
Richard Rost 
7 months ago
Hey guys. Microsoft just added another new function to Excel called STOCKHISTORY. It allows you to grab the history of a specific stock and put it into your sheets. It's not that hard to use. Personally, I don't really play the Stock Market which is why you've seen very few lessons from me on the subject. Does anyone want me to put together a lesson on how to use this? Just trying to gauge the interest of my students.

Number of Students per Month Link 
Ronald Ramsey

put together a monthly report noting the number of students seen for service each month. I've tried to keep an accumulated total of special education students listed for the month and the year. I don't know how to maintain accurate figures. EX: Each month students received Gen Ed and Sp Ed in Gen Ed C3, Sp Ed E3. I want to accumulate total for C3 and E3 in C15 and E15. How do I accomplish this?
Richard Rost

I'm not following, Ronald. Can you please be more specific?
Ronald Ramsey

Yes. As a school social worker I needed to maintain records on the number of students I serviced and whether they were general education students or those in special education. I developed a spreadsheet to list the number of Gen Ed Students, let's say in E3 and the Sp Ed Students in, let's say G3. At the end of the month I needed to have the total number of Gen Ed Students seen that month, let's say the cumulative total was kept in E21 and the total number of Sp Ed Student for the month was tallied in G21.  I want each entry into E3 to be  automatically added to E21 and the same with G3. I was never able to figure out how to automate that process. As a result, I had to manually insert those monthly figures. I hope this helps. Thanks Rich

No XLOOKUP Prepaid Excel 11 Link 
Normand Caron

I have Excel 2013 and no XLOOKUP. I prepaid Excel Expert 11. How can I use it?
Richard Rost
8 months ago
Hi Normand. You're not the first person to contact me about this. I expect there are a lot of people out there who are sticking with Excel 2016, 2013 (it was a good version) or even older. Heck, I used 2003 for the longest time, well past the time 2007 was released. If I didn't have to upgrade to TEACH people Excel, I probably wouldn't have. In any case, I don't expect you to spend money on a course you can't use. If you're not planning on upgrading to Excel 2019 or getting a Microsoft 365 subscription then you can't use XLOOKUP. So, I'll be happy to give you a free copy of the next class in the series when it's released. This will either be Expert 12 or Developer 1. Just let me know when you get the release notice and I'll add it to your account.

Fair enough, I'll try to upgrade to office 365 from office 2013.
Thanks for the info.

Ha ha. That's awesome. I haven't heard from anyone who has purchased my book in a LONG time. It was released in 2011, so that's nine years ago already. Man, it seems like yesterday. Thanks for the purchase - the videos AND the book. One of these days I'm going to write another one. Maybe. Videos are so much more my thing. The agent from the book company found me on YouTube and contacted ME to write it. I was honored.

Richard Rost

I'm almost finished recording Excel Expert 11. I know, it's long overdue for many reasons. Topics are going to include more with string/data manipulation, the new XLOOKUP function, and an introduction to the Developer Tab and combo boxes. I know that those are "Developer" topics, but I'm going to give you just a taste before diving into Excel Developer lessons. Read More...

It's done. Finally. Yay! Over an hour of lessons finished including a LOT of material and examples on XLOOKUP. I had a lot of fun recording this one. Please feel free to post your ideas for future lessons though.
