I have a 'totals' sheet that pulls stats for matches on a sheet named by the date the match(es) were played on.
On my totals sheet, I have each athlete's data listed under their name, by match, so they can see how they've (hopefully) improved throughout the season.

The problem is, I have to manually copy/paste/adjust the cell formula for each match.

On 9/5 we played Team A & Team B.
On the totals tab, I list "Cindy" and her data for certain skills for those matches.
Column A would show "9/5 Team A" and the next row would show "9/5 Team B".
In column B I would normally reference "='9/5'!B17" to pull her data for that stat.  Then I could copy/paste it for each skill recorded during that game.
Next row, I'd repeat, but it would need to read "='9/5'!B31" (there are 14 rows between the same skill of each subsequent match).
Then I could copy/paste for that entire match as well (meaning column C becomes "='9/5'!C31").

I want to figure out a way that I can copy/paste based on some moving criteria.
I can reference the sheet name dynamically by using

But, obviously, I can't copy/paste that for columns C forward, I have to manually increment the column.

Secondly, if there was a second (or multiple) matches, I'd like to be able to dynamically increment for the next row:

Finally, if there's a way to do this based on the athlete's name, the first Athlete's name begins on A37 of Totals, and…

I have a lenovo a10-70f that only boots into recovery mode. I choose a command and I get the dead android logo with a triangle coming out of its stomach with a caption "no command"

My diagnostic is that the OS updated and screwed up, I've seen it similarly before with Google Play soft-bricking the entire tablet.

There is an option to update from from, does anyone know where I can get a copy of the original android image for this device? And where can I get a copy of the fastboot file? I had it a while ago, and I lost it when my server mobo died.

Latitude 3440/Windows 7. This is a new issue never experienced before while in projection mode (F1), using "Mirror" (so that I can work on the laptop while others can see what I'm doing on the big screen).  The cursor is in the correct place/orienation on the big screen, but is completely whack on laptop screen.  If I'm aiming for the task bar, it's correct on projector, but pointing upside down and at the top of the screen on laptop.  Mousepad too.  it's perfectly fine when not in projector mode. I thought maybe someone had mucked with the screen resolution, but changing that didn't help.  Google unhelpful. Any ideas on this?

I have built a small wordpress widget that floats in the bottom right hand corner of my client's website(s), so that their users can click it to make a payment to them... which simply redirects the user to my payment platform / website where my customer has an account.

FLOW - widget sits on and when they click it, the customer is brought to (their payment profile on splink)

I need to be able to track how many users land on from a widget that sits on another site.

I was thinking of using something like and then i can view that in Google Analytics?

01 - would this approach be the best way to do this?

02 - any other advice on approaches would be greatly appreciated

Thank you in advance for your help.

Hi all,

I need an idiots guide to tracking forwarded pages.  I understand most of the concepts, but the analytics interface is mostly a mess to my eyes.  Here are my intentions:

1) custom domain , and exist
2) each independent URL forward to the same destination (where tracking is up and running fine)
3) Be able to track and trace the traffic hitting, and

Tools at my disposal:

1) Full access to analytics on and
2) Full domain access at the registrar level
3) Webserver control for (using plesk, have Wordpress installed to it right now in an attempt to make it easier for client to do some of the page creation, but can abandon in favour of custom php pages index.php, 1.php and 2.php for instance)

If there is a clear and concise document(s) already written, please link.  When I go hunting, I find people with posts that tell half the story.

I am using a small code in Excel but know need to use it in Google Sheets,but im not able to convert the code to google sheets
Please help.

Code as below:

    Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
    Dim temp As Range, max As Range, min As Range

    Set temp = Range("A2")
    Set max = Range("B2")
    Set min = Range("C2")

    If Not Intersect(temp, Target) Is Nothing Then
        max = WorksheetFunction.max(Target, max)
        min = WorksheetFunction.min(Target, min)
    End If
    End Sub

Thanks and Regards

I have inherited a web site (WordPress) that uses Google Forms to gather form info on the web site.

I don't know what it does with that info, how to access it, how to send the completed form info to intended recipients, etc.

Is there somewhere documentation on how to manage Google forms?

I want to use what has been developed without re-inventing the wheel, I may have to.

Our website is in JPEG format.  My understanding is that Google wants the contents of the website to be in HTML.
How could we change the contents of the website to be HTML. Our website has about 2000 pages.

I'm setting up 20 Chromebooks for a small private school and it's a first with Chromebooks and the chromebook management software for me.  What I'm trying to figure out is this...
They thought about assigning one Chromebook to 3 students but the other option (easier) is to allow any student to log into any of the Chromebooks.  The problem is I'm concerned the 16 gig drive will fill up if people start keeping things in the downloads folder and/or if user settings are stored locally.  Is there a way to keep this from happening?  Each student will have there own login credentials and google drives under the GAFE account.

We want to utilized the Monitoring and Reports options that is available through the management software. But, I also see that I can't enable the option "Erase all local user info, settings, and state after each sign-out" otherwise the logging won't work and this where I'm stuck.  Not sure how to get around not being able to use the Erase all local user info at log off option yet not have to worry about the drives filling up if a bunch of students log into the same Chromebook.

I started looking at how the "sync user settings and data" option works but I'm still unclear as to the best option for this sinario.  

Thank You!

I have a network that I need to create some Google Chrome Polices on Windows PCs.
I need to have Chrome NOT remember the Google account when the browser is closed.
I have public PCs where users are logging in to Chrome and then the next user can access their personal settings in Chrome which is the problem.
I am not on a domain, just a workgroup.
Is there a way to easily do this?

What the best way?

I'm working with Google Tag Manager for the first time.  I've setup the container and added tags.  But the green box says "Container Not Published" "Add tags and publish to make your changes live"  When I click to add tags, there are no tag Versions to make live and the tag, trigger, and variable count are zero.

I've attached a screen shot of the tag manager Workspace in hopes that helps.

I have scoured the site and read all of the documentation and for the life of me cannot find what the issue may be:

The file content-search.php on my WordPress site has this content:

<div class="row">

  (function() {
    var cx = 'xxxxxxxxx';
    var gcse = document.createElement('script');
    gcse.type = 'text/javascript';

    s.parentNode.insertBefore(gcse, s);

I would like to simply replace this with the built-in (default) WordPress search feature. The theme I am working with is custom and was created by someone else. Is there some kind of default PHP code I can replace the above script with, to use the default WordPress search instead? The theme doesn't have a template file for search, other than what is shown above.
I am using angularjs xeditable for one of the fields in my form.

I add shops using google maps api autocomplete. I can add as many as I want. City and country fields get updated accordingly, and also the address field, which is in xeditable format.

The problem is:

When I have multiple shops, and I want to edit the address field (which is xeditable), when I click on the xeditable field, all of the xeditable fields open up and go on edit mode.
How can I only limit it to the one clicked and not others?

<form editable-form name="myxedit">
   <fieldset ng-repeat="shop in myModel.shops track by $index">
      <span e-name="erer" class="editable-click" ng-click="$form.$show()" ng-disabled="myxedit.$waiting" e-ng-blur="$form.$hide()" href="#" editable-text="shop.address">
        {{ shop.address || 'empty' }}
      <span ng-show="myxedit.$visible">
        <button type="submit" class="btn btn-primary" ng-disabled="myxedit.$waiting">
          <span class="glyphicon glyphicon-ok"></span>
        <button type="button" class="btn btn-default" ng-disabled="myxedit.$waiting" ng-click="myxedit.$cancel()">
            <span class="glyphicon glyphicon-remove"></span>
