I created a excel work book with 3 sheets. 2 are of charts. The main page is where all my data is input. I need to send this information to an company I am working with that has a program that will extract the data from it and utilize it. However I am being told it wont work because of the merged cells in the spreadsheet I made. Is there a way to send this file out and the recipients program still be able to extract the data it needs from it without having to unmerge all the cells?
