For something that seems like it would be a pretty common requirement, turns out there isn’t a “built-in” easy way to delete blank / unneeded rows from a Microsoft Excel worksheet.
Well here are 2 nice methods, clearly detailed out:
Method 1 – For removing empty rows
Method 2 – For removing rows that contain “blanks” and other unwanted data
For the first time ever today after using various Macs for 10+years, I was suddenly met with this screen upon launching FaceTime:
How to fix this?
A restart (as with most things) sorted it out for a short while, but the issue returned again after the next time that the system re-awoke from sleep mode. A little Googling suggested running the following commands in turn from a Terminal window:
sudo killall VDCAssistant
and then after that, this:
sudo killall AppleCameraAssistant
And that’s seems to do the trick!
Super handy tip here: how to extract data from between parentheses “( )” in Microsoft Excel. Just create a new column, and in the first cell of that column, enter this formula:
Note: The formula above assumes that your “target” column that has the parentheses is column “A” and the first row 1 has a value with a parentheses in it. If either of these are not the case, just change “A1” everywhere in the formula to match your first target cell that does have parentheses you want to extract from.
And that’s it! Just copy that formula over to the rest of the rows in your new column and you are all set!
To Extract text from parentheses, use this formula in a new column, assuming the target column is column “A”:
Note: Change “A1” accordingly to match the column and specific cell that you are targeting, then copy that formula to all other cells in your new column. Done!
And then to remove the text and the parentheses from all values in a column:
- Select the entire column
- Do a Find and Replace
- In the “Find what” box, enter this: (*)
- Click “Replace All”. Done!
Using Google apps for your own domain name email, and need to create a catch-all email address? There are a number of suggested ways to do this floating out there, but the way that worked best for me is found here.
That does seem to be the proper way to do it, at least of time of writing this post (end-May 2018).
Came across Lobe today. Very exciting and interesting start up that aims to bring a “no-techie” required visual design web based interface to building deep learning models.
Looks like very good stuff!
