I've been ripping my hair out trying to find the answer to this.
In Numbers for Mac, I need to fill a column automatically with a series of integers (1 - 50) and then the next column with a function that interacts with the first column.
Column A - 1 - 5
Column B - (value in Column A * 5)
I can't figure out how to do it in Numbers When I try to fill column a with 1 - 50 all it does is fill all 1's and I cant find an option how to make that change so it automatically numbers when I highlight them.
The best I can describe is how in Excel you can type 1 in the first cell, then highlight a bunch of cells and the little box appears that lets you click "Fill Series"
I haven't been using it much after Safari 5 (just because Firefox takes forever to open compared to Chome and Safari) but I think that since 3.6.4 or 3.6.5 it constantly hogs my system using 80%-90% of my CPU according to Activity Monitor. RAM usage is similar to other browsers.
Yeah I know I have an old Mac (Mini Core Duo 1.66) but right now for example Safari 5 with 5 tabs is using 5% and Chome is at 4.5%. I know it's not the extensions because I downloaded the 4.0 beta which disabled most of them (just to test it) and the same thing happened. Btw I'm using 10.6.4.
I just have a quick question about Numbers (iWork '09). I need to graph some supply and demand graphs for school. How would I go about doing this? Whenever I create a graph based on a chart, it just plots each row as it's own line. I can only edit the values in the Y-axis, and obviously I need to be able to work with the X-axis as well.
Update: I played around with it more and figured it out. I guess you have to graph it as a scatter plot and then choose to connect the dots, and remove the dots, rather than choose the line graph, whose icon looks just like a graph of supply and demand.
I am using numbers for my accounts receivable. I have a formula which some dude created for me *years* ago that I used in Claris Works and it *seems* to work most of the time in Numbers. Anyway, the formula provides for either a debit or a credit and a balance. This is how it normally looks. However, for some weird reason the balance gets all screwed up whenever I enter cents into the equation. Check this out. I entered 5192 in the credit section and it changed the balance accordingly. However, when I add the 70 cents (.70) to the credit, the balance looks all messed up.
I'm trying to create a template for legal billing. The only thing I'm really having a problem with is the formula that multiplies time by hourly rate. The time spent cells are formatted to show it as 4h 5m ... and that totals perfectly with the SUM formula. When I multiply it with a rate cell formatted to currency the math is fine, but the format stays as 00h 00m ... even when I format that cell to currency.
I recently bought a Macbook Pro (and loving it) with iWork 09 pre-installed. I really like using numbers compared to office. However, I have just started working in a group where all the other members use Windows with Office 2007. I have been able to save my numbers (and pages) documents as the office equivalent. My problem lies when I am working on a document in numbers that is the office format. I like to continuously save my progress but whenever i press save, I have to save it as a whole new document or replace the existing one. When I used to work in office 2007 I used to just press save every now and then and it would save my changes. Am I doing something wrong or is it because I am working on an excel spreadsheet in numbers (word document in pages)?
A sheet of ply comes 1220mm wide and my staircase is 1200 wide. Therefore I get two out of one cut of ply. Used an 'if' function <1220 to divide by two as I get two out of one sheet if it's less than 1220.
Cell D11 calculates the amount of ply (as width measurement) needed by using an 'if' function, and E11 works it out as an actual sheet. The problem is it's showing 0.47 instead of rounding it to the nearest whole sheet (1), even if only 10mm is used I need to buy a whole sheet.
I just wanted to know how I could start the page numbers in header and footer on the third page of my document. The first page is the title page and the second page is the table of contents, and of course I wouldn't want the page numbers to be on those pages.
I have searched on the web and in help but couldn't find anything.
I am a newly converted Mac user and have some entrenched Excel habits, and try as I might, I couldn't locate this Excel formula in Numbers.
In Excel, I use "=C55 (or cell reference)" to copy that particular value from one worksheet to another.
I do this by clicking on the cell where I want the value to be copied to, type = and then switch to the other worksheet and click on the cell I want to copy. And voila, I am now back onto my 1st worksheet with the value showing. I do this because the value I want to copy to this cell changes regularly.
When I format a cell as time (13:30), why does it go to 00:00 when i enter "2." I want it to go to 2:00, but the only way to do it is enter the colon myself... there must be a way to enter "2" and have the cell show "2:00."
I am trying to compare an estimated time to actual time. The problem is my estimate is 4-5 hours. How can I make 4-5 hours show up(in number format) in one cell... is that even possible or do I need to make two cells, one for min time and one for max time?
I just got into using Numbers, it's awesome, the templates are great, but I'd like some alternative ones if possible. Especially comparison tables. I'm ok with using the same template for eternity, it would just look better if I didn't.
I just purchased a new Retina Display MBP as an upgrade to my old iMac.I have over 200 Applications taking up the bulk of my drive, many of which have serial numbers that I no longer even know of due to loss of original boxes, or what have you. I am trying to avoid copying all of my content over to the new MBP, I would much rather just move what I actually need to and try to keep it a little "cleaner". So my question is, with a Time Machine Backup of my iMac... Can I plug that into the MacBook Pro, launch Time Machine, and simply drag the last backup's Applications over? Will the ones with the serial numbers run?
Info: iMac (21.5-inch Mid 2010), Mac OS X (10.7.3)
I have a column that has name / phone and i'm trying to break out the two into two separate columns. I can't figure out a way to do this? I'm trying to figure out to use the line break to trigger the column separation but no luck? Here is an example of what i have in a column:
I have a .txt file that is quite long and I need to get some data off of it. The file is made up of a few thousand lines each with a format similar to: 1 2.4 5.4 abcde abc.def, The 1, the 2.4, the 5.4, etc each signify a different value and I need to somehow get them into separate columns into excel. The number of digits in everything except the first value (which is always one digit) varies, and all the values are separated by spaces. What is going to be the easiest way for me to get these values into numbers in separate columns? Realistically, doing this manually isn't an option.
I am studying, there is a weekly timetable made of 20 individual classes, each on 4 times a week. I would like to know how to make a spreadsheet so I can manually input all these classes and have it return a non conflicting pattern. By that I mean that I want a personal timetable that will let me visit each class at least once a week.
I am attempting to modify the given template CHECKING ACCOUNT REGISTER in Numbers. I have figured everything out except how to modify the "Category" column where a drop-down menu is given for several recurring items (Home/Gas/Food/etc.) that are to be entered in that column. I would like to find how to create such a column or to be able to modify the one provided in the template. The TRANSACTIONS table is linked to the ACCOUNT CATEGORIES table which is linked to the CHART. That is intact and working as it should, but I have been unable to alter the column CATEGORY so that the drop down items will be ones that I want to use. Having the drop-down menu insures proper itemization in the linked ACCOUNT CATEGORIES table where typos are avoided as a result. The PDF manual was of little help (to me anyway) in addressing this seemingly simple alteration.
I'm trying to insert the current time into a cell formatted to take the date & time where the date is omitted from the format, but the time is enabled. It's giving me 12:00 AM as the current static time.
I'm working on a brief, and currently have the non-page-numbered and the page-numbered components (the cover page, table of contents, table of authorities, etc etc, and the statement of the case and argument, respectively) as a separate document. It'd be nice if I can combine them into one document (makes for easier printing and management).
But I don't know how to offset the page numbering so that it starts on a certain page as "1" and goes from there. I don't want a page number on my cover page and table of contents, for example.
Got Numbers 08 installed, never really used it as didn't have a need. Created a spreadsheet the last day with some survey results for a project and saved it.
My spreadsheet looks like: (A1-Grey) - Sex - Age - Multiple choice question (Blank-Grey) - Male - 30 - Answer1 (Blank-Grey) - Female - 25 -Answer2
With a blank column on the left that's grey and the top heading thing being grey. Bit lost though with turning say the "Multiple choice question" column into a pie-chart (or any sort of chart tbh). I choose the header and all the 30 or so replies in that column and select chart -> pie-chart. It presents me with a pie-chart "Chart1" with just blue - 100% and the legend stating : blue - Untitled 1. How would I go about making the chart with the data I need? (I know I'm selecting it wrong or have it laid out wrong or something) or editing a chart manually.
