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.

INDEX and MATCH can be used to great effect to replace HLOOKUP and VLOOKUP as it does not have the limitation of needing the data to be sorted so that the reference value is in the first column or row. It also has the ability to perform a bi-directi…
Approximate matching with VLOOKUP and MATCH seems to me to be a greatly under-used technique, and one which is vital for getting good performance out of large lookups. Until recently I would always have advised using an exact match for simplicity an…
