Excel Consulting - Past Project Examples and Possible Uses

Excel custom macro programs can be created for a variety of tasks that are not always obvious.  If you have an excel spreadsheet problem, help could be closer than you think.  If it is something that we have done before, we can probably do it again, maybe faster.   ;-)) J
