Autofit Merged Cells From Pdfs

Dec 3, 2009

I've just created a spreadsheet that we will be using as a project review form. In this spreadsheet I have multiple rows of merged cells, column D to N, for comments. I need these comment areas, merged rows, to autofit whatever is cut and pasted or typed into them.

The first problem is cutting and pasting from a pdf. All of the documents we received for the projects we bid are in pdf format. We often cut and paste from those documents into an older version of our review sheet that was built in Word. Trying to cut and paste the same information into Excel ends up in failure. Is there a way that this can be done without jumping through hoops?

The second problem Iím running into is when I cut and paste into a comment area I get the typical Excel error message that the information being pasted does not fit the area it is being pasted into. It there a workaround for this?

My third problem is autofitting the pasted information into the merged cells. Iíve seen some VBA and tried a couple but they donít work automatically when the comments area is filled. How can I do this? I donít know VBA. I'm using MS Office 2003

Autofit Merged Cells With Wrap Text

Aug 6, 2007

I found referred to writing a vba code such as the one below:

Sub Format()
Rows(x).entirerow.autofit
End Sub

I have tried a vba code such as the one above but the issue persists.

I have a worksheet with merged cells [horizontal]; each cell is also formatted to warp text.

The issue is that the row size or cell size [vertical] does not adjust when the user types more text than what the cell size can handle.

AutoFit Row Height On A Merged Cell

May 27, 2009

I'm using Office 2007 professional and I'm trying to format a cell (merged cell) so that when you enter text and it goes beyond the size of the designed cell that it will automatically continue and shift the additional text downward, like a paragraph. Also it shift everything below down with it. Is this possible? I have already tried wrap text field and AutoFit row height. This keeps it within the cell but it is not visible or printable once you tab out. I would like to have it continue like in a paragraph. Like a word doc may do. Itís visible and it shifts everything below downward as it grows, which also allows it to be printable.

Autofit All Cells In Many Worksheets

Jun 22, 2008

1. autofit all cells in 38 worksheets
2. copy the previous row without looking up or deleting or inserting. Just a simple copy previous row of values and formulas down one (to the next row empty or not)
3. Hide columns with headings hide in the first cell of the column.

Remember, I have 38 worsheets in the same workbook that it has to cycle thru. 4 of those are pivots, so no need to include those.

Shared File Prints Differently For Different Users - Autofit Wrapped Cells

Apr 16, 2014

Here's the details:

Same file shared by many users in the office. File is maybe 2200 rows long and 20 columns wide. Last column is a text field where users can explain variances. Cells in the last column are wrapped and the rows auto-fit on the height. Zoom is set at 100%.

One person opens the file and it looks fine on the screen. Print preview also looks fine. File prints out perfectly.

Another user opens the file and it looks fine on the screen. BUT, print preview shows that the bottom line or lines of text is cut off. File prints exactly like the preview showed with clipped text.

Both users can point the file to the same printer, but that doesn't seem to change anything. Still prints with text clipped for one person and perfectly for another...

May 29, 2014

I wish to copy a merged cell (3 cells) based on if only 1 of 3 cells to the right contain "X". if the top cell does not contain "X" than the merged cell is not copied. Also, is therea more elegant to copy 3 columns at a time rather than do one at a time as my code shows:

Clear Contents Of All Unlocked Cells (many Are Merged Cells

May 28, 2009

I am looking for a code that will clear all of my unlocked cell in sheet 1. That is not a problem but since many of the cells are merged I know it keeps throwing me an error saying cannot change contents of merged cells or something like that. Does anyone know how to get around this without unmerging the cells. I saw a code to unmerge all of the cells on a sheet but I really don't want to do this as I already have worked around most of my problems with the merged cells.

Obtaining Data About PDFs

Nov 20, 2013

I have a large number (couple of hundred) pdf's in a folder for electrical test certificates. The pdf's are in the format 54 Pike Drive.pdf etc. and have the date modified.

Ideally, as well as the address I would like the date modified as this is pretty close to the date of the certificate so will suffice.

Failing the date, just the addresses will do which need to go on separate rows in Excel.

I've tried copying and pasting the files but to no avail.

Sorting Cells That Have Merged And Unmerged Cells

Oct 21, 2013

Im having problems trying to sort through data and linking certain data. I will post example below:

Main 1
Main 2
Main
3
Sublevel 1-4

[Code]....

This is just one part of a row of the workbook but shows the Main data which is made up of 4 different sub levels on the right. I merged 4 cells for the main data so that all the cells lined up but I'm still having problems with being able to sort and link the files together so that when I filter, they all do it together. The example didn't paste well.

VBA Code For Saving PDFs To Edit Name

Jun 24, 2014

I'm working on a mac and have a macro that will go through all the sheets in my workbook and save them as PDFs to a specific location.

Sub CreatePDF()
For sh = 19 To Sheets.Count
Sheets(sh).ExportAsFixedFormat Type:=xlTypePDF, Filename:= _
"/Users/mikemahoney/Desktop/Publisher Payables/Statements/June 2014" & Sheets(sh).Name & "June 2014 Revenue Share Statement" & ".pdf", _
Quality:=xlQualityStandard, IncludeDocProperties:=True, _
IgnorePrintAreas:=False, OpenAfterPublish:=False
Next
End Sub

The part in bold is obviously where I am saving the PDFs but it is also being included in the naming of the file. Need replacing the red text in the naming of the file with the contents of cell B9? I would still like to save the PDF to "/Users/mikemahoney/Desktop/Publisher Payables/Statements/June 2014" I just don't want the file-path to be included in the name of the file.

Also, this code seems to run into errors if a sheet is hidden, hence starting at sheet 19. Any way to tweak this code to skip over hidden sheets?

Script To Automatically Hyperlink Pdfs

Jan 27, 2010

I did find something related

http://www.tek-tips.com/viewthread.cfm?qid=1167426

, but as my knowledge in VB very limited I'm unable to make the neccessary modifications to fit my case.
the case:
the warehouse I'm working on is tracked by a big and messy excel file that includes details about various components.
the warehouse is virtually represented by folders that represent a drawer, each drawer includes 0-10 components's dateasheets in pdf file format.
I'm looking for a script that would hyperlink the specific pdf to each component to a certain column that includes the component's name.
there's another column in the excel that supplies in which drawer the component resides as you can see:

http://img251.imageshack.us/img251/7830/blablaf.jpg

You can also see how the drawers are represented virtually by folders with datesheets inside
components 20-29 all reside in drawer 20.

its worth noting that sometimes the whole drawer is empty and so both the column in excel and the folder will be aswell.
the script should(I assume) check the pdf's filename in the drawer( mostly the files's name look like in the screenshot), but sometimes the name is only the component's name,so if there is no drawer number before the component's name it would still know how to identify and hyperlink the pdf.

Cut Paste Merged Cells.

Aug 12, 2009

I now see why alot of you dont like merged cell's. What i am trying to do is Cut and paste a range that contains merged cells. A kit can be created using the Button on the sheet. The cells in column G are merged down to the last kit item. On Row A of the kit the 1st cell contains data validation once the Delete kit cell is re-entered it removes the selected kit from the sheet. Then will select all kits below the (now deleated one) and cut the range, and paste it to where the old kit was located.

When the kit's are pasted into the new location there are issues with the merged cells in column G. Is there a way to fix this issue, or know of another approach to keeping the same layout.

Filtering Across Merged Cells?

Feb 13, 2012

I have exported a report to Excel from a BI tool called ZAP.

Unfortunately the cells in the columns are merged by group eg. salesperson, product, country.

I need to be able to filter by each of the columns - the only way i can think of is to unmerge and copy the information to the rest of the "merge area".

This will be extremely time consuming as there are more than 1000 rows and at least 5 columns that I want to filter.

Reading Into Merged Cells

May 15, 2007

I have a table where sometimes cells are merged. To the right they are not merged, but I need to link to the value of the merged cell. How can I do it if I don't want to do it manually?

Example:
Say A1:A4 is merged, A5 is just normal. I want a formula using those values, say in B1:B5. Now just filling down the formula would reference A1, A2 and so forth. This is wrong.

Alternative To Merged Cells

Jul 22, 2009

I have a workbook in Excel 2007 where I am creating a summation worksheet through the use of arrays which sumif and countif the other worksheets. Things went fine until about halfway through when I started getting merged cell errors. In between the calculations, I had some merged cell rows for section titles. I was not entering the array into them, but researched the error and unprotected the cells. Problem solved. Now, with 10 row to go, I started getting the error again. I unmerged the sectional title rows. I verified that the cells are not protected. However, when I ctrl+shift+enter to input the array, my formula is moving from the cell that I am inputting to, to the cell in the row directly beneath it.

Looping Through Merged Cells

Apr 16, 2007

I need to compare cells in two worksheets but with a difference ex:
Worksheet 1 contains merged/single Cells
Worksheet 2 contains single Cells
Now , i fneed to compare first merged/single cell in Worksheet1 with first single cell in Worksheet2 and similarly , second merged/single cell in Worksheet1 will be compared with second single cell in Worksheet2 and so on.........
Though i can use exact and compare them maually by specifying cells but since i need to make it general , suppose second time there can be some other combination of Merged cells I need to compare with Worksheet2 .

Unmerge Merged Cells

Jun 14, 2008

I have read the posts regarding merged cells and understand they should be avoided, but I am working with spreadsheets created by others. My problem is that I need to sort the data, but some of the cells are merged so it won't work. Is there a macro command to easily find the merged cells and unmerge them?

Saving Multiple Sheets As Separate PDFs?

Jan 9, 2014

I have an Excel file with multiple sheets (over 100). I want to save them each as an individual PDF, with different (but similar format) names.

As an example, I want each PDF to be be called "Date Name" (i.e. "1-8-2014 Sarah", and next one will be "1-8-2014 Beth", etc.)

Is there a way to do this all at once, instead of my having to manually save each one? Is there a way for me to set it so that the title lists the date and then, for example, whatever is listed in A1 (which will be the name)?

One other question is that because I get this report from someone else who generates it, the way the file is formatted on my computer is that the print area is set at too small, so if I convert immediately to PDF, everything gets messed up. I have to manually make the print area bigger so that the PDF version encompasses everything on one page. Right now I've been manually adjusting the print area page by page - any way to do this all at once?

Conditional Formatting In Merged Cells?

Aug 11, 2014

I am conditional formatting with fill colour based on specific text- the cells are merged down into a double cell- when the cell changes colour it goes half one colour and half another colour based on the order i have them in the rules- i only have them set to one colour per specific text and the text is all different- so why am i getting this half and half look?

Copying Values Of Merged Cells

Apr 8, 2009

I have a pair of workbooks in which one calculates a number of values and I want to store the values only in the other.

I would expect to be able to highlight the range of the calculated cells in the source workbook, Copy and then Paste Special | Values in the other.

Both the source and the target contain some merged cells. When I try to do the paste, it complains that "this operation requires the merged cells to be identically sized".

They are identically sized.

I have even done Paste Special | Column Widths to guarantee they are identically sized. It doesn't complain about the merged cells then; in fact, it doesn't complain about the merged cells with any of the other paste operations, only with Values.

I have been able to repeat the behaviour with a very simple example. See the two attached sheets. Try pasting Values only of the range $B$2:$D$4 from either one to the other.

When I first created the samples they worked. What seemed to triggered it is I changed one of the merged column widths by one pixel, tried expecting it to fail (and it did), changed that column width back again and it hasn't worked since. As I said, I even tried pasting the Column Width to the target, which it appeared to do successfully, but it hasn't helped.

Now, the attached examples are only to show the principle of the problem. They are very simple and there would be a myriad alternative work-arounds for them. In my original case though there are many formulae over a much larger range and I want other people to be able to paste values without having to follow complicated instructions, so I am not looking for work-arounds unless someone has a mind-numbingly simple one that my numb mind has overlooked.

The only other way of solving the problem that I can think of would be to write a macro that copies cell values individually, but I'd rather not do that because I know these people: they will get narky about having to enable macros. It will be "against organisation policy" or something.

Is there any way of resetting the target workbook so that it will receive the values from the source?
