I've created a connection which draws information from an access table to excel. The issue is that any numbers (they are ratings from 1-10) that come from access are shown in excel 1 number higher than the correct data that is in access (i.e 10 is shown as 11, 9 as 10, etc). I've looked all over the forum as well as google and can't find any information on how to correct this.
I've about 10 pivot tables in Excel that are populated via an External Query link to Access. In each case I have pre-written views with all the columns I need so that the query can just pick them up. Nine of the ten queries work perfectly, but one doesn't - reporting "Too Few Parameters - Expected 1" when I try and click on the "Return Data to Excel" in the import wizard.
I can see the column headers in Excel to select; so I'm assuming that it can parse the SQL but no results are being returned. Just to confirm though - results are returned (>8000 of them) in Access.
SQL code below:
Code: SELECT z.pathdurationhours AS PathHours, Count(z.pathdurationhours) AS Paths, Count(z.pathdurationhours)/(select count(*) from (select [activity date], [conversion ID], count(*) from tbl_dfa_p2cdata group by [activity date], [conversion ID]) ) AS PCT FROM (SELECT a.[activity date], a.[conversion ID], val( max(a.[interaction time])-min(a.[interaction time]) ) *24 AS PathDurationHours FROM tbl_dfa_P2CData AS a WHERE a.[interaction time] "" GROUP BY a.[activity date], a.[conversion ID]) AS z GROUP BY z.pathdurationhours;
I created a slick little excel sheet with the data coming in automatically via Access query. It has been working fine for months. Now all of the sudden there are a bunch of cells with missing data. The weird part is it's not as if whole columns are missing data, more like 90% missing. When I go to Access and run the query all cells are populated as the should be. There have been no changes to the query at all during this time.
I currently have a workbook that has VBA functions that calculates values by looping through large amounts of data in a few large excel sheets. I want to transfer the data from these sheets into Access and then bring data into the VBA code via an array from the data in Access rather than the array being populated from the data in excel as it currently is. How to create the connection. The access DB will be situated in a public directory on a server. How to create the connection string and then how I call the data from Access? I have just downloaded Office 2013.
I am not sure how to setup the initial connection to the datbase from excel and was wondering what would be the best way to go about things. Is it possible to run the query stored in the database and pass it a value or would I be better off just coding it into a sqlstring within the macro.
Here is the query that is in the database...when run it asks for the "Status?" variable.
SELECT ordernumber, mobilenumber FROM bookings WHERE status = [status?];
So yes, really simple query but yeah just want to know how to pass it that variable from excel or can I just set it up in the actual macro to maybe read the status from a cell?
With Excel 2010 a yellow warning bar is shown when opening a file with data connection. I don't want to show this warning to other users who will be opening the file, especially when they won't be able to update anything since the original data is on my computer. The logical way would be to remove or disable the connections before sending the file out. But when removing the data connections through Connection window all the pivot tables are converted to static tables, which is not acceptable. Is there any other solution to this? Maybe use a macro?
PS: I know that these warnings can be turned off though Trust Center, but I am not interested in changing these settings for other users.
Im using Excel 2010 and have a data connection that I want to use. I added it to a regular workbook and it updates perfectly as-designed. However, I need this feature to work in a shared workbook, but it doesn't.
I have a sheet that contains a Microsoft Query (SQL) data connection. In cell C3, I have the month name and I also have a year cell (C4), which contains just the year based on what the current month (=YEAR(TODAY())) is.
For this example let's use May (C3) and 2013 (C4)
C3 and C4 are used as parameters for the SQL query, so if I change the month to January and the Year to 2010, data is refreshed to bring in that data.
I then want to add 11 more sheets (12 total), so each sheet is a month. The value in cell C3 on each sheet will be the month name.
If I just copy this sheet 11 times, Excel adds 11 extra data connections; 1 for each sheet. As the query in each sheet needs to be exactly the same, I don't want this. I want the 12 sheets to use the same data connection, only with the specified parameters at the sheet level.
Otherwise, if I need to add or remove a column, or change a column name, rather than just doing it once, I'd have to do it 12 times.
This can't be right, surely, as that would be the most ridiculous design flaw I've ever seen in a piece of software. How can having the same query 12 times be a good thing?
I'm a bit concerned that googling 'excel data connections multiple sheets' always wants to be 'excel multiple data connections one sheet' - I want 'excel multiple sheets one data connection'
I'm trying to build a workbook (2007) with multiple worksheets where each worksheet corresponds to a different query/dataset pulling data from the one database.
I would have expected that you could define the one data connection object and then specify the SQL that each worksheet table will invoke. The apparent structure of having the query coupled to the connection object is confounding me. I'm therefore trying to set up a separate connection for each of the worksheets and Excel is getting tied up in knots.
I open a spreadsheet or workbook that has links to other workbooks I am notified by the message bar that content has been blocked. I click Options > Enable this content > OK. Even if I don't make any changes I'm prompted to save changes when I close the file. If I hit Yes or if I hit No, I will still be prompted to enable content in the message bar the next time I open the same file.
I have changed the External Content settings in the Trust Center to "Enable all data connections (not recommended)" and "Enable automatic update for all workbook links (not recommended)" but I still get the messages.
My Message Bar is set to "Show the message bar in all applications when content is blocked" because I read on Microsoft KB that the other option of "never show information about blocked content" will still block the content, just not tell you about it, which doesn't fix my issue.
The files I'm opening and the files linked to and from them are all on the same shared drive on a file server in the office. Is there a way to tell Office '07 that our file drive is a trusted source by default?
I have 4 workbooks, all of them contain data that is managed by other teams at my company. I need to take all of this data, organize, and concatenate it into one sheet for myself, that I will then reference in other workbooks to various OTHER departments in our company that need the data for certain projects. I have the organization laid out in a lot of very complex formulas so that most of this is automated, and not manual.
I need a solution that can pull data from the 4 workbooks without locking them for use, to allow me to keep my document open all the time, and they can update theirs at their leisure. Everything works fine, until I hit the refresh button. Once this is hit, all of the linked documents are locked and cannot be opened, even in "Read Only" mode. Once I close the master document, the files are free to be opened. I know a workaround for now is that i can not "refresh" the document, but rather close and re open it for changes.
Some steps I have already tried :
1. Create an intermediary file that no one uses, and can be locked all day without a problem. This doesn't work for me since the intermediary file needs to be open to refresh, which locks the original source doc, leaving me in the same place as before.
2.Modify the connection string to display "Mode=Read;" instead of "Mode=Share Deny Read"
3.Create a new connection with "Read" only selected in the Advanced Tab
I have an acess database where I export the data into a blank excel workbook and then copy and paste the data into a report file. My goal is to automate this process and my first thought was to add a button into the access database and have it export to an excel template, but using/editing the access database is not an option, so, that leaves me thinking about automating this process from excel. Is it possible to export data from an access database into cell A1 of a tab?
I have created one Info path solution to gather information from different locations to one hidden Access database. And in last month or two I already have more than 30 000 entries in database. On other side I have created 2 excel workbooks, one for purpose of report that has all connection done through VBA, user just opens it, clicks button and gets report and one workbook that is for other set of users so they can change 2 specific columns of data, everything else is locked. When one department fills value it should fill based on gathered information, and clicks save that cell or cells are being locked.
At first I did on worksheet change event, when user changes a cell (enters information) it triggers worksheet_change event and saves that value in database and colours cell green. But, then users start complaining that when they use copy paste or the use fill paste option (just pull value from one cell to others) it does not save value. Ok ... that is because worksheet_change event does not trigger in situation when copy paste in any form occurs.
So how to solve it ... when pulling data in excel I pull identical table (data) in other hidden worksheet. When they change what they need to change, they click button "save to database" i have created and there is a macro that makes other sheet visible, goes through the records and saves where cell value in table that is being entered is different then same cell in hidden table.
Problem is that sometimes my code works without a problem and sometimes they get an error. I cannot figure out when. When a lot of users use that excel file, for some users it is a read only file, and as I presume that is ok, because macro works in any case and data are stores in database so excel file itself does not have to be saved.
I am creating a Payroll Database. It is nearly complete except for the federal and state withholding tax data. I want my db to look up the data which I have saved in an excel workbook. I need the lookup to be for marital status and # of exemptions. There are a total of two variables for each table. 1. How much the gross pay is (ex. between $175-185) and # of exemptions (ex. 3 exemptions).
I want to transfer data from excel to access using vba, where 1) I have excel sheet with Header at top row and some data below it. 2) Once I run my macro access table will get created and My excel header row will be my access field names and data will be accordingly.
I am doing data entry spreadsheet here where the information gets manually input into a spreadsheet and then when the user clicks a button, it transfers it to a the Access database.
This was done by my predecessor but i had to modify it which has now given me a "Run-time error '3061', Too few parameters. Expected 1".
My code is below:
Private Sub SaveandExport_Click() Dim db As Access.Application Dim TB As DAO.Database Dim Intro As String Dim Tabelle, GName, VarList, TaName Dim i As Integer Set db = CreateObject("Access.Application") ' create Access object
I have an excel macro that works of off data that we pull from an access database and the only part being done manually is editing the query and importing the data to excel
What I would like is something in excel VBA that pulls the data from access. my thought is in access i would have a basic query that has the fields we need and excel would have a form to filter those fields as needed.
One of the fields is Date and another Location where we filter date ranges and locations. we currently go in to the query and filter the date range by hand and the locations we want by hand.
I am not that great in access so have not created any macros to pull the data from excel before so don't know what I am doing.
I have a macro that creates a table in Excel. The problem is the table will be MUCH bigger than 65,000 lines. So what I'd like to do is once the table gets to a certain size append the data to a Access DB. (Or whatever works)
Then continue running the macro.
Clear Table, Rinse, Repeat.
The "Output" Page of the Macro looks just like the DB would.
For example if I only wanted one instance I could run (part of) macro. Save Excel. Open Access Do an ImportTable
We have a program that creates a database for every order we make. The database has the same name for every order but it creates a different folder for each order. So my database name is constant but the folder is different for each order. I have the following macro that works ...
I was trying to define a function that could fetch data from MS Access Db to Excel using the below code (from a very old thread in Mr Excel) but am getting no return value in Excel. The value displayed is #NAME? ...
Code: Sheets("Sheet1").Range("A6").CopyFromRecordset rs to populate columns A through to F. These records come from an Access database.
In column H through to L, content is being written for each record.
For example columns A to C are dynamic and H to I are static
A B C H I
1 Record 1 Some data 1 Some data 3 Manually entered data 1 Manually entered data 3
2 Record 2 Some data 2 Some data 4 Manually entered data 2 Manually entered data 4
The problem is when a new record is added to the database. It creates a new row for columns A to F however the data for H to L does not move. The same occurs when a record is deleted from the database.
A B C H I
1 Record 0 Some data 0 Some data 0 Manually entered data 1 Manually entered data 3
2 Record 1 Some data 1 Some data 1 Manually entered data 2 Manually entered data 4
I currently have a userform, and on commandbutton_click, it performs the following code that adds a column in a access table to a combobox(cbList)
Private Sub CmdName_Click() Dim rstName As ADODB.Recordset Dim strClientDatabase As String, strConnectionString As String strClientDatabase = ActiveWorkbook.Path & "9001.mdb"......
After its listed on the combo box, upon commandbutton_click on another button, i wish to extract a particular record, based on the selection made on the combobox(cbList). This is where im having problems caused i have no idea how to do so. I just want it to extract the particular record row, based on cbList, and insert it into range A100:D100 in a particular worksheet. It is then updated and added to a listbox which ive already done the coding for, and with another button click it would add the details in the listbox into the appropriate location i wish to.. The only place im stuck is with extracting the data from access into a A100:D100 range in any worksheet. what ive come up with, but is incomplete is :
Private Sub CmdImport_Click() Dim adoRS As ADODB.Recordset Dim strSQL As String Dim strClientDatabase As String, strConnectionString As String strClientDatabase = ActiveWorkbook.Path & "9001mdb" .........
I'm trying to create a simple Excel spreadsheet (not looking for Access or complex relational database stuff) to have the following:
A tab with data about a person : name, date of birth, join date, and a list of sessions they attend (eg. Monday Morning, Monday afternoon etc).
A different tab in the same sheet, or a form to select from that list of people, and allow changes to the information, and the ability to save it back to the data tab. Ability to add new people or delete people would be useful.
I am looking to create this as a basis for managing sessions, creating a register etc....
Any simple spreadsheet which I can use as a starting point, or to use as a reference in getting it established?
I have an Access table which has following fields:
ScanDate Number DataType Type Number Type1 Number Type2 Number BatchNo Number Cases Number Pages Number
Now I have a useform in Excel so that when the user selects the Date from the combobox then it should check for total batch numbers (Count(BatchNo)), total cases (Sum(Cases)),Total Pages(Sum(Pages)) where ScanDate= Date from the combobox group by Queue Number. The Queue Number consist of Type+Type1+Type2.
See attached the Excelsheet where the data should be populated to. WBCount.xls
I am using VBA to export an access query into excel, the query works fine in access but when importing the data into an excel spreadsheet, it doesn't display the date column headers in the correct format.
The problem I have is that the dates 1 to 12 are displayed the wrong way round eg:
In Access date column headers from query are: 09/01/2008, 11/01/2008, 12/01/2008, 14/01/2008, 15/01/2008 etc.
But when exporting to excel, the above dates are shown as: 01/09/2008, 01/11/2008, 01/12/2008, 14/01/2008, 15/01/2008 etc
It seems to be changing round the dd/mm when I export, but only upto 12 when the day is 13 or more it is displayed correctly.
