I enjoy writing code to sovle my analytical problems. My main tools are SQL, Powershell, MS Office and .NET (VB and c#). I particularly enjoy writing custom functions to save time for myself and my colleagues.

I ride a Surly Cross-Check bicycle on my daily commute.

comment How to open xlsx files with Excel 2013 by default on windows 8?
This does not work when trying to switch from 2010 to 2013, under win7. I can see two entries for Excel but selection either leaves me with Excel 2010 as default

comment Diagnosing Windows 7 Start Menu search delay
I think it's because the location is within My Documents and the Google Drive folder has a large amount of information that regularly changes (hence indexing is often out of date and/or broken)

Also, my goal is stated as 'primarily...' AND 'conditional...' [so no VBA]'

comment Most efficient way to paste cell reference into clipboard as string?
I can do this with a macro. I do this on my own computer. However I have to perform this test/logging on numerous computers where a valid test environment requires that I can't run custom user macros... so I was just wondering if there is a better way to do this

comment Reference DOCPROPERTY with a blank space in its Name
Whilst I generally agree with this notion I believe that this is an appropriately brief answer — a simple solution to a simple problem that simply fills a gap in documentation. I prefer a concise answer to a verbose answer where additional words would not add value. Please feel free to edit the answer if you have a useful addition.
