MS Excel 2007 Pivot Table Question

As I spend most of my time buried in databases I rarely use Excel. I have two questions.

I have an Excel spreadhseet containing four rows of data but each row consists of about 85 columns. I would like to switch the rows to the columns and the columns to the rows. Is there a basic tutorial on how to do this?

Also, every time I open this spreadsheet it keeps telling me certain options have been disabled and I then click on the Options button to enable them. After saving the spreadsheet and reopening it asks the same damn fool question again. How do I stop that?

Hello,

First question: You can copy the data, then click in a new sheet in A1 and use Paste Special and tick the Transpose option.

Second question: Which options are these?

That sounds like a completely different issue. I don't run 2007. Some aspects of 2007 are quite buggy. You may want to start a new question with a title that reflects the problem to draw experts who know about it.

You need to click the Office button (top left) then Excel Options, then look at the Trust Center settings. Which ones depends on which specific messages you are getting.
