Button Linked To Source Data

Apr 21, 2007

I have 3 worksheets, one worksheet is a summary worksheet that gives totals for what the user chooses... like Actual vs Budget or Actual vs Prior... etc. When we are in our meetings a common question is where did these numbers come from?

I would like to create a macro button that when you are on a cell you can click the button and the macro well take you to the destination cell. Is there a way you can write a formula in to the macro that would use the formula in the current cell and take you to where that number comes from?

Can Move Source Worksheet Of Linked Charts In PowerPoint

Jun 22, 2014

I have created a powerpoint that has linked charts from excel. Stupidly, I have saved both of these files (powerpoint and excel) on my desktop.

I need to save them on another drive (so they can be accessed by others) but i am worried that if i move the original excel file, it will break the links for the charts in the powerpoint file....

I have over 150 charts so I don't fancy going through and re-pasting each chart.

Pivot Table Retains Old Source Data In Addition To New Source Data

Sep 7, 2006

I have a report that was created for 2005 that contains two worksheets: a "source data" worksheet and a " pivot table" worksheet. I cleared out the 2005 data in the "source data" worksheet and replaced it with 2006 data...after this I refreshed the Pivot Table and everything seemed fine. When looking at the file size I noticed that it was almost twice its original size....upon further investigation I found that the Pivot Table was internally holding onto the old source data (the "Show" functionality of the rows/columns in the table lists the 2005 row/column headers as well as the 2006 headers....even though no data from 2005 is shown in the Pivot Table).

Does anyone know how to purge the old data from the internal Pivot Table memory?

I hope this is enough information....let me know if you need more.

Thanks in advance for any help,

Macro For Date And Time Stamp - Linked To Button

Dec 28, 2011

In my job, my team have to take phone-calls from stores asking various questions. In order to combat this, I have set up a call tracker to see where the calls are coming from (so we can beat them with a stick). I have asked my colleagues to record the date and time of the calls.

I need a big button at the top of the page that says 'New Call'. Then, when this button is pressed, the time and date stamp will automatically be put into cell A3, then when pressed again a4, and again a5... and so on.

I am struggling with the following:

-Using CTRL + Shift + : to input the date/time on a macro inputs the date I made the macro, not the date/time the button is pressed!
-I can only get the date to go in cell A2 - If I press it again, nothing happens. how to do this, or just do it for me

Linked Data In Workbooks

Feb 3, 2010

I'm still using Excel 97. I know I'm a dinosaur but I find it does what I want, just like a Ford Model T would.

I have one workbook (workbook "A") which links to another workbook (workbook "B") when "A" opens.

If I now update and save "B" I find I need to close "A" and re-open it to get the updated data from "B".

Is there anything which might be called "update field"

Vba Code Recording Dde Linked Data

Jul 13, 2005

In A2 is the Stock price, and B2 the time of the update.Now every time it updates A2 and B2 get overwritten.I need some code that will save/ record the the stock price on the hour, every hour. I then need the highest and the lowest price within that hour, and lastly the price at the very end of that hour. (example)


I received what I think may work, but I dont know how to write this in VBA. If the time of the new value received > than B2 + 1 second, create new row where Open=High=Low=Close else if (last column=new value,if new value>high column then high column=new value,if new value<low coulmn then low column=new value.)

Code Linked To Data From Another File

May 3, 2007

I need to link my code to data from a different Excel file. I feel it is smth simple, i just have never done this before. In a regular (=same file) setting, my code would be smth like that:

With Worksheets("Daily1")
j = 1
Do Until IsEmpty Range("A6").Offset(j - 1, 0).Value)
j = j + 1
m = j
End With

What would be the syntax if data instead comes from, say, Z:Brazildata.xls. In general, when I retrieve data from another file, do I always have to use "With - End With" structure?

Converting Linked Workbook Data To Text?

Jul 9, 2014

I have linked two workbooks together but now need to be able to convert that linked data to straight text. I have a v-lookup in the report that needs this to be this way. I do not want to use paste special values because that would defeat the purpose of linking the two pages.

How To Keep Rows Of Data Together When Dynamically Linked To 2 Columns

Apr 30, 2014

I am trying to set up a new assurance work book and worksheet (worksheet2 lets say) which will dynamically link to another workbook and worksheet (worksheet 1) owned by another part of my business. The purpose using the data set in worksheet 1 is that this is the source data and is the most accurate for the project information. So I am looking up columns A, B and C in that workbook in my new worksheet2 using ='[Spreadheet 1.xlsx]Sheet1'!$A$1:$A$1174 the same for column B and C, with the aim that any new data entries within columns A, B and C will be populated in worksheet2.

In columns D to Z of worksheet 2 (my worksheet) I am applying some assurance metrics to the project information that is specific each row of column A, B and C which are dynamically linked to woorksheet1. My problem and it is completely eluding me is this....

The owners of worksheet1 regularly sort the data into chronological order based on Column A. However the data is not normally presented in this way i.e. all new entries regardless of date are added to the list at the bottom of worksheet1. The problem I have is, is keeping my row data in Columns D-Z linked to the row data in columns A-C of worksheet2 no matter what kind of sorting occurs to Columns A-C in worksheet1.

Searching Data In Google To See If Linked To Website?

Jul 22, 2014

I'm trying to see if there is a way to speed up the process of doing multiple Google searches to see if I can find a website attached to a text. I have a list of websites, and am trying to update the list to remove dead/inactive sites, and also find the URLs for the live sites.

The list looks like this (sample):
Comstock, Inc.
Contacto Latino
Core States
Crains Chicago
Crains Chicago Business
Crains Detroit
Crains Detroit Business
Crowell Weedon

Thus there's no website attached, and I need to manually find the URL myself. There are over a thousand cells in the list.

How to speed up the process of finding a url for these websites?

Automatically Hide Rows That Contain No Linked Data?

Mar 16, 2014

I have two linked workbooks, one containing a large data table, and the other containing individual worksheets that extract the data from the large table via HLOOKUP equations in each cell.

Is there a way to have Excel hide the row of a worksheet if the resulting HLOOKUP result in the cell in that row is empty? Also, if there is data in the cell, can I get Excel to automatically adjust the row height based in the incoming data and not on the HLOOKUP equation?

Dynamic Named Ranges With Linked Data

Feb 4, 2010

I am using OFFSET to make dynamic named ranges- the only problem is that I'm having trouble using it with linked data-

The Situation:

-Cells A1:H500 are linked to another sheet, with each cell containing a formula like =IF(ISBLANK('C:...[workbook.xlsx]worksheet'!A1),"",'C:...[workbook.xlsx]worksheet'!A1)

-Currently only cells A1:H100 have data, but this is dynamic and will change

-I want a named range that will only select the cells with data in them...the problem is that COUNTA counts the link formula even if the cell is "blank" (because it isn't blank).

-I hate hard-coding ranges...the solution for the named range =OFFSET($A$1,0,0,500-countblank($A$1:$A$500),8) is ugly!

Any solution to making dynamic named ranges with linked data that may or may not be "" ?

Get User To Choose Location Of Linked Data

Sep 18, 2006

I've have a spreadsheet where 4 cells are linked to another workbook via a vlookup.
the problem i have is that a lot of users can update this external book, or it can be saved as a seperate spreadsheet somewhere else on the network. If it was up2 me i would have them only update the one sheet, but as it stands its not. So what i want to be able to do is put some code onto a button on the sheet, from here i want the: Application. GetOpenFileName

method to open....but from here i want them to be able to pick the cells where the data is situated. Any clues..... i can get as far as them selecting a workbook. Do you think i will need to create another userform?? Maybe RefEdit? I'm not sure.

Color Chart Data Points By Cell Values Of Non-Source Data

Apr 14, 2008

I have a bar chart that was made from table 1 which has the value in it. I have another table, table 2 that has the name corresponding to the value in table 1.

Sending Linked Charts - Data Missing Or Can't Display

Aug 1, 2014

On a weekly basis I update a suite of charts in one workbook that are created from several other linked workbooks. Once compiled I send this via email to a colleague who incorporates it into another report by printing the charts as a pdf. For some reason he often ends up with erroneous data (zero's where there shouldn't be on the charts), or often his system doesn't display certain elements like titles and axes etc

We think his system is spending resource looking for the original data and getting itself knotted up, but surely there should be a way of delinking the charts but maintaining their integrity as they are saved?

Importing Data From Access Database Without Linked Tables

Jan 6, 2014

Bar those who don't believe/celebrate in Christmas, Hope you all had a good Christmas and New Year celebrations.

I have two sets of data, lets call them 2013 and 2014. I have a Spreadsheet already set up in excel, but currently I just past this information into a tab in excel (which isn't ideal at all), and given the data is growing, is slowing down my excel spreadsheet a lot.

I have some experience with Access, SQL and queries.

What I have done thus far is to link my Access DB with Excel, run a query and paste the resulting table from the query into excel all using VBA (easy peasy).

The problem i have is that the table is still linked, and i do not want or need it to be linked. I know that there is a "Unlink" Option, which is not what i need, and also a "Convert to Range" option which is also not what i need, but closer. This got me thinking, is it possible to import the data into an array (all in VBA in excel from the query in the SQL) and then i can paste that information into my Excel spreadsheet, or is there a better method?

Add Data Monthly And Then Have To Manually Update The "source Data" To Reflect The Added Data On Chart

Apr 28, 2009

I have a column line chart to which I add data monthly and then have to manually update the "source data" to reflect the added data on chart. This is a rolling graph, which mean that I have to remove data for one month(from last year) and then include the new month's data. Is there any way on automating this process...like a macro or something, so once I add the data excel automatically removes one month of old data and make changes to include fresh data. Eg Currently chart is based on data from A2:F2 and I add new data to cell G2. I need something which automatically update the source data to cell B2:G2.
