    Re: Excel Treasure Hunt

    It could not have been too bad...(facts or spelling) seeing that you got the prize!

    Thanx for the advice though, and I hope you enjoy the prize! <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Re: Excel Treasure Hunt

    Sadly it contains ingredients my body doesn't agree with - but a nice thought anyway <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    I think to make it quite fool-proof, you would need to fill most cells with dummy data (questions) - there are a couple of ways to avoid needing an explicit number!

    Hmmm, twas an experiment...but advice well recieved. Sadly I don't even think Trivial Pursuit has that many questions to cover 16000000 cells x 2!

    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Find out the name of the smallest bird. Join the letters to the length of the bird rounded to an integer! That should give the co-ordinate! CM (centimeters) is not part of the co-ordinate!</span hide>
