The best Excel solutions available online.
In my experience the websites listed below are the most useful sites for MS Excel assistance and problem solving.  These folks did not pay to be listed here, indeed they did not even ask.  Rather it is my way of saying thanks for all the time and effort these people have saved me and I hope they can help you as much too.  Most of these folks are MVP qualified and these few sites can provide you with hundreds of free, effective and proven solutions to just about any Excel issue or problem you have experienced.  All of these sites provide advice and solutions that is freely available to you without obligation.

Pearson Software Consulting: (http://www.cpearson.com/excel.htm) (MVP)
This is one of the most wonderful and useful Excel resources on the web.  This site is run by Chip Pearson and covers both VBA (Macros) and regular formulae.  These are many examples of solutions for day to day problems.  I especially use Chip Pearson's site for formulas or code for dealing with:
 - Finding and dealing with duplicates in Excel.
 - Calculating time in Excel.
 - Using VBA code to manipulate or modify VBA code.
 - Replacing code in one workbook with code from another.
Just to list a few, there are pages and pages of information in here.
