Excel copy parses data incorrectly – how to pre-clear

Here is a good post that accurately resets what Excel parses on when you paste text. I have known for a long long time, that the LAST text-to-columns settings is what is used when one pastes data into excel, but I thought I would see (I finally snapped for the last time) what other people did. Well, it is a macro of what I always do by hand – a fake text to columns that sets things in prep for the real one. My issues is that I have all sorts of macros that could set this here or there depending on the last one I ran. Thanks for the post!

Live Dashboards in Excel – from a good friend who did all the research

Here is a nugget – a friend of mine made a dashboard with no VBA where the user IN EXCEL – pulls down a dynamic value to … lets say “may 2015” and the charts etc. update. One could do this in VBA, but, you don’t have to. I thought it was worth saving/sharing the link.
