Auto Update Links From Excel To Powerpoint

Oct 25, 2012

I have excel graphs linked to a power point presentation that runs in a loop and I would like have to the links update everytime slide 1 pops up or when the loop restarts, either one works for me. When I close the looping presentation and reopen it I get a message asking me if I want to update the charts, but I would really prefer the looping presentation to update itself. I know this is going to be a VBA setup, but I cant seem to figure it out. I pasted the links by: pasting special, paste link as microsoft office excel worksheet object.

Excel 2010 :: How To Auto Update PowerPoint Table When New Data Entered Into Table

Jun 12, 2013

I have created a table in Excel 2010 (pls see attached table named post.xlsx).

Then copied the above table into PowerPoint 2010, using "paste link" (I tried to attach the PowerPoint file but the system says "invalid file type" and I cannot attach it).


I have received income data for another month - the new month is 13 and the corresponding new income is 100.
I typed 13 and 100 into the Excel table post.xlsx and thus extended the table by another column.

Then I went back to PowerPoint slide, then right clicked on the table there, then clicked "update link".

Specific Question:

The newly-typed column in Excel table is not get updated in PowerPoint table.

Format Of PowerPoint Links To Excel

Sep 25, 2011

I have 3 potx files, for one of them the links come out as:

Site Safety Metrics Rollup.xlsm!PPT1!R101C2:R118C14

the other are like:

C:EHS ReportsTFP EHS ReportSite Safety Metrics Rollup.xlsm!PPT1!R192C2:R209C14

I want to have the same format as the first one i.e., without the path. When the potx files are refreshed the link file will always be opened, so i do not need the path (this is part of a vba program).

The folder containing the files will be sent around and put in different drives.

'EHS Reports' is the main folder and that and everything else inside will remain the same. But the ppt links will not change so obviously will not update when the 'EHS Reports' folder is somewhere else.

Why did the links show up in different formats?

Auto Update Links With Current Values

Aug 4, 2006

When copying data from a closed workbook, I frequently get the prompt:

"Links to 'Source.xls' were not updated because 'Source.xls' was not recalculated before it was last saved.
To update links with current values in 'Source.xls', click OK..."

Is there a way I can bypass this prompt and automatically update with the saved (uncalculated) values and therefore not require a user intervention?

Excel 2010 :: Update Links By Referencing A Cell Value?

Feb 12, 2014

Windows 8.1, Excel 2010. I have this code that updates the links. I use it in various workbooks, but they are all going to the same document; "Data Master (QC"

ThisWorkbook.UpdateLink Name:=ThisWorkbook.LinkSources

When I change computers, I have to manually tell each document where to fine the linked document. I want the documents being linked to look for the file path in a designated cell, i.e Cell E3 = "C:UsersOwnerDocuments1-QCDataData Master (QC).xlsm".

Something like ThisWorkbook.UpdateLink Name:=ThisWorkbook.Range("E3").Value

Update Links And Click Update, Returns #VALUE!

Jun 21, 2007

I have a vlookup to another workbook. It works fine if both workbooks are open. But if both are not open and I open the workbook with the links and click Update, #VALUE! returns. I have attached the two files. I don't think it is my formula, but here it is anyway. =IF( COUNTIF([Tempozgrid.xls]June!$A$52:$A$83,A3),VLOOKUP(A3,[Tempozgrid.xls]June!$A$52:$L$82,12,FALSE),0)

Excel To HTML - Auto Publish With File Update

Feb 18, 2011

Im trying to use excel as part of an real time display system, what im looking to do is after xx time period import some data (which is fine, I have that bit sorted), then save to as html- (hopefully using excel 07 abilty to repubish data to update the same file with more info).

I have added some Javascript to the html file to auto scroll, and then will be adding a refresh script which should hopefully update the display with any new info genrated from excel...

so far I have found the following code, but could do with a hand to tie it all up!

Public Sub Watchon()
State = "Mointoring Folder..."
Timerun = Now() + TimeValue("00:10:00")
Application.OnTime Timerun, "DetectNewFiles"
Userform1.Nextupdate.Caption = ">Next Update will be @: (" & Timerun & ")"
With ActiveWorkbook.PublishObjects.Add(xlSourceSheet, _


Then within DetectNewFiles Sub, I need to update the html data, I guess I can't reuse the above bit, as it would just overwirte the whole file (and so remove javascripts too).

Sub DetectNewFiles
'Some code to import text files to excel
With ActiveWorkbook.PublishObjects("Book1_24990")
.Publish (False)
.AutoRepublish = True
End With

Some code to reset next time update of DetectNewFiles

Excel 2013 :: Auto Update Formula Inserted In Email In Outlook

Feb 10, 2014

I send these kind of mails to intimate people about upcoming meeting, the format I prepare in Excel 2013 and paste it in Outlook 2013 (as a table, not as an image)

Now one of the columns I put as 'Days Remaining' which basically tells the users how many days are there to the review, the image below will show how it looks:

Now the numbers of days remaining will be correct the day I send the mail, but when somebody opens the mail at a later date, it would not sort of show the true number.

Is there a way to auto-update this number inside the Outlook mail, as it works in an Excel Sheet?

Update Links When There Are None?

Jan 27, 2009

i have a complex workbook. Recently, when I open it, it asks me if I want to update links. I never (that I know of) established any links to other workbooks. I see that a workbook is referenced in the "edit/links" menu, but I can find no way determine which cells, graphs, etc, in my workbook are subject to this link. I would like to get rid of this useless and bothersome issue.

Links Do Not Automatically Update

Sep 11, 2013

I have a dashboard (CW Dashboard.xlsx) that is linked to 3 main spreadsheets. In each main spreadsheet, there are 5 tabs. One tab contains raw data, the other 4 tabs contain tables: 2 tabs with formulas based on the raw data tab, and 2 tabs linked to 20 other spreadsheets (for now). I separated the raw data into 3 spreadsheets because Excel was calculating way slower than my patience would tolerate. All spreadsheets are Excel 2010. All spreadsheets reside on our network drive.

The links update as expected on the 2 tabs that are linked to the 20 different spreadsheets in each of the three main spreadsheets.The CW Dashboard does not update. I get #REF! in each cell (although when I click in the cell, the link shows no error). I am using VLOOKUP and HLOOKUP in this spreadsheet. I can of course open the source documents from within the Dashboard and the links then work as expected. However, I would prefer the eventual users of the Dashboard not have to open 4 s'sheets.

Update Links To All Spreadsheets

Jan 13, 2010

I'm hoping to find a way to update links on all spreadsheets going backwards.

ie. s/sh 5 is linked to s/sh 4
s/sh 4 is linked to s/sh 3
s/sh 3 is linked to s/sh 2
s/sh 2 is linked to s/sh 1

Is there a way of opening s/sh 5, and having it automatically update s/sh's 2,3 and 4 (1 has no links), rather than just updating s/sh 4, as would be the normal functionality. Currently I need to open 2, then 3, then 4, otherwise changes to s/sh 1 do not flow all the way through to s/sh 5.

Update Links Object

Jun 27, 2006

I have a macro that creates links to another workbook and then changes the setting for the links update to "xlUpdateLinksNever". I wrote this macro in Excel 2003. I am now testing across different excel platforms and this errors out when I try to use it in excel 2000. I'm assuming this is because excel 2000 does not have the same ability to ontrol the links.

Update Formula Links

Nov 3, 2006

I have a sheet with formula in various cells that are referenced to a sheet that doesnt initially exist. For example one formula on the sheet is: =If( 'WF Tracker 2008'!$D$5=AN$4,INDEX('WF Tracker 2008'!$B$6:$P$10, MATCH($E36,'WF Tracker 2008'!$B$6:$B$10,), MATCH(AN$7,'WF Tracker 2008'!$B$6:$P$6,)),IF(AN26="N/A",AN31,"N/A"))
and initially, sheet 'WF Tracker 2008' doesnt exist so the formulas all produce #ref! values which I expect. My problem is that I Run a macro that creates the sheet 'WF Tracker 2008' but the formula dont want to refresh/update unless I individually go into each cells formula in the formula bar and hit return.

Update Links Across Workbooks

Jun 6, 2007

I have a Vlookup in a shared workbook looking in another shared workbook for the data I want. I open the file and click "Update Links" but I then get the following message box:

"This workbook contains one or more links that cannot be updated.
-To change the source of links, or attempt to update values again, click Edit Links.
-To open the workbook as is, click Continue.

I know this message is trying to tell me it can't find my links, but the path/workbook/ sheet are correct and the numbers are getting updated. I'm worried the message will deter the other users of this workbook from allowing the use of the vlookup.

Update Links Without Prompt

Mar 18, 2008

I'm using code which forces users to enable macros prior to being allowed into a file. Then I ran into an issue of needing this Shared Workbook to update links, which you can't do in the workbook_open event and I do not want users prompted to update or not. So what I've done is made a 'skeleton' file to force the macro enable and then open up the real file with updated links. Once the real file is opened I want that skeleton file to close. For some reason, once the file closes the code halts. "Forcemacroenablemaster" closes, but nothing runs after it. If I comment the close line out everything after runs. This code is in my "Forcemacroenable" file:

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Call ShowAllSheets
Workbooks("Forcemacroenablemaster.xls").Close False
MsgBox "Test"

Call ValidSetup
End Sub

Links To Data Tables Do Not Update?

Aug 30, 2013

I'm having a problem with data tables. Actually, not with data tables, but links to data tables. Calculation is set to be automatic and values within data tables update alright, but links to those values do no update. So you may have a certain value in one cell within a data table, for example cell B5, and a different value in another cell which is just a link to cell B5.

Don't Update Links On Workbook Open

Aug 12, 2009

I have a workbook that has many cells that link to a server on the other side of the planet. If I manually open this workbook I get the "This workbook contains links to other data sources." And the option to "Update" or "Don't Update"

If I choose to not update, everything works great. If I choose to update, the worksheet takes 10-15 minutes to open. I have tried to go to tools-->options-->Edit and uncheck "ask to update automatic links" but this makes the default behavior updating. I want to open this workbook using a scheduled task and a batch file, and have it not update, and then run a macro. Any suggestions on how to do this?

Office 2007 - Where Has The 'do You Want To Update Links' Box Gone

Jan 14, 2008

I'm opening an Excel file that automatically attempts to update links when I open it, but I am not prompted with the choice to cancel, or update links, when I open the file, like I was in Office 2003.

I have checked the Excel Options, Advanced, General, 'Ask to update automatic links' box, but I still don't get the dialog box when I open the file.

The file is just riddled with VALUE errors. A colleague of mine who opens the file in Office 2003 can see all the data fine.

Slow Update Of Edited Links

Sep 26, 2008

My business has a significant number of Excel sheets interlinked. One of them has about 10.000 links to about 60 files. Those 60 files are within a sub-folder and once a quarter the business needs to replace all 60 files with a new set. To establish this, they replace the sub-folder name in the link with the new name. To do this on 10.000 links takes about 72 minutes because Excel seems to open up a file for every updated cell. We tried to stop this by changing Excel to calculate manual, disabled "Update remote reference", but this didn't improve anything.

We have similiar issue when opening/updating the master file - it takes around 3 mins.

Besides that a proper database is certainly better for this requirement, is there anything we can do to improve the performance of the replace method. I was thnking about stopping Excel from validating/updating each single cell and after everything has been replaced to do it in one go without Excel opening and closing 10.000 times a file.

Update Of Links In Formula For All Cells

Oct 20, 2006

I have cells (range named Formulas) in a worksheet A (wsA) linking to another workbook. This workbook has several sheets, each a different forecast. From a Radio Button Group on wsA I would like to choose forecast, FC1-FC3, and then all the cells in the range Formulas would be updated with the choosen FC.

I would like a VBA script to handle this:When the workbook is activated the present Forecast in the Radio Button Group should be stored as a variable (oldFC)When I choose a new forecast, the value should be stored in a new variable (newFC)I then want to loop through the whole range (Formulas) and update each cell and it's part of string value to the newFC

Before update:
wsA cell N3='H:[5500-plan-06.xls]FC 3'!N$16
wsA cell N4='H:[5500-plan-06.xls]FC 3'!N$17

When new Forecast is choosen this should be update to:
wsA cell N3='H:[5500-plan-06.xls]FC 1'!N$16
wsA cell N4='H:[5500-plan-06.xls]FC 1'!N$17
