    i have an interesting question for our resident excel experts..

    there is a spreadsheet we use daily at work but the only way to "begin again" is to manually zero out all the fields, it doesnt take long but i would rather just set set it up so i can clear it all out to begin a new day.

    i wont be clearing every field to zero, certain ones will remain every day. just wondering if its possible.

    yup it's easy just put in the basic data + go file>>save as. chose template from the drop down list:cool: jus open up the template each time + put in all ur stuff. 2 start again jus open up the template again.

    this is off the top of my head but it should work fine:cool:

    that would work in certain situations.. however, certain numbers on the sheet are re-used the next day, and it's always changing.. so you see, a template would not work so well.

    i've seen a "reset" button on other spreadsheets i was wondering if it could be applied to this situation.

    I think the only way to do that would be to set up a macro.

    To make the macro, you need to first make a button for it somewhere on the spreadsheet. Then you right click on it to assign a macro to it. You will then have to start recording the macro, which is an option when you get into the macro setup after right clicking in the box. Once you start recording the macro, it is going to record everything you do. So dont mess up, hehe, or you will have to start over. When you have all the fields you want set to zero, i think you right click and go to stop recording macro. But if you zero all the fields that you are talking about while recording the macro, when you want them set to zero just hit the button, and that should reset them. I hope that helps somewhat. Later.
