Excel Formula Help

by paula0435 / February 28, 2014 12:19 AM PST

I am a teacher and I have a list that contains EVERY student in my school and their homeroom teacher. I have another list (Truancy List) of students with 10 or more absences but no homeroom teacher. Is there a formula I can use to pull the homeroom teacher for each truant student into my Truancy list? Thanks!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
