    Re: Limiting Search Results to One Per Thread?

    The only thing I can suggest at present is that you make your search a bit more specific.

    I'd love to, but unfortunately it's not a very specific quest! Thanks for the feedback anyway.

    Brooke,

    Are you looking for Excel linking to external apps?

    I saw <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.wopr.com/cgi-bin/w3t/showthreaded.pl?Cat=&Board=xl&Number=31677&page=2& view=expanded&sb=5#Post31677>your post about links</A> in the "Mock taht App" thread, and wondered if it was in the right place.

    If that was the case, you could try a search, for instance, for "exteranl links" and have "search options" = "And".

    Geoff,
    The comment in Mock That App was just idle chatter. Yes, I am having a few problems - not to external apps but to other spreadsheets. The reason for such a wide search is I'm just trying to make sure I understand what's going on here. FYI, though, Manville and Microsoft aren't coming up with the goods. If I crack the problem and if I think the lounge would benefit from any additional knowledge I glean along the way, then I will post it to the excel forum. Those are two big ifs!

    COMPLETE: Limit Search Results to One Per Thread?

    I'm trying to do a search on the word "links" in excel, and getting an awful lot of results. I know i should expect that given the subject matter, but it got me to wondering: is there a way to limit the results returned to individual threads, or is it possible to put another column in the results showing post number and thread start post number - that would enable me to skim down the list of posts fairly quickly, and then go look at those threads? Or have I missed something that makes search really easy to use in the way I want?

    Brooke
