mail merge separate file per record

Microsoft Word has an excellent feature called Mail-Merge. If the query returns more than one record (say 4 for the sake of the example), then the resulting Word file has multiple copies of the document merged together in one file. It is possible to have Word create a seperate file for each record using this add-on.

predictive typing

You can try a software called typing booster on Fedora. It helps user while typing. User can avoid typing mistakes and also avoid typing long spellings. If you are on fedora or centOS use the following command:

yum install ibus-typing-booster -y

I hope this package is made available for debian as well.

Returning the Smallest Non-Zero Value

I don't remember if I have mentioned this before, but if you want to return the Smallest Non-Zero Value, use array.
=MIN(IF(A1:A5=0,MAX(A1:A5),A1:A5))

(entered by pressing Ctrl+Shift+Enter)

You can make the formula even shorter by turning it around in this manner:
=MIN(IF(A1:A5<>0,A1:A5))

Another old Excel bug

I have noticed an odd thing when it comes to creating CSV files with Excel: the files are not always consistent in how they end each row in the output data. When I create a CSV file that has, perhaps, 70 field (columns) of data and then views the CSV file in a text editor, I noticed that the records all contain carriage returns, but in different places. How do I get the CSV files to contain a consistent number of output fields.

This is actually a problem that has been known to Microsoft for quite some time. The Microsoft Knowledge Base includes an article on this topic as early as Excel 97:

Disable Paste Options

Excel include a feature that really annoys some people: Paste Options. When you paste some tidbit of information in your worksheet, Excel displays a small, floating "button" right near the end of the pasted information. Follow these steps to turn it off:

  1. Choose Options from the Tools menu. Excel displays the Options dialog box.
  2. Make sure the Edit tab is displayed.
  3. Clear the Show Paste Options Buttons check box.
  4. Click on OK.

Printing a Multi-Line Footer

You can create a multi-line header or footer in Excel. The trick is to remember that you cannot press Enter while typing your footer. Instead, to start a new line you should hold down the Alt key as you type 0010 on the numeric keypad. This inserts a line-break character in the footer text. The total length of a header or footer cannot exceed 255 characters.

Picking Up in the Last Document Edited

you can jump to the last place that you edited in a document by pressing the Shift+F5 key. In other words, open the document, press the shortcut, and the insertion point jumps directly to the last edit point in the document.
