I'm trying to download an Excel file from the internet and then extract data out of it. The problem is that I don't get any errors, yet the file downloaded is only 1kb in size. The extraction bit works, but the file is empty. The actual file is size 350KB.
Code: Sub ExtractDataTest()

Which when tried, surely worked a few months back. I am now using excel 2010. I tried the same again, but this time it does not work for me. Is there something else to do which has been changed in the new excel 2010 ?
Column A = Date Column B = Value 1 Column C = Value 2
I have a folder with excel files named by date (e.g. 081212 = 8th December 12). Within each of those files is Value 1 and Value 2. They are always in the same cell (B6= Value 1, B16= Value 2).
How can i create a macro/script where the Values in Column B and Column C in my spreadsheet are automatically updated where there is a Date in Column A but no values in Column B or C?
In other words, i need the script to read the date in Column A and if Column B and Column C are blank, then it needs to find the corresponding date excel file and copy Value 1 and Value 2 into the cells in my spreadsheet.
30 people in different countries use a sophisticated VBA Excel file on their local PCs, let's call it myexcelfile.xls. This file contains no custom data, as all data is stored in myexcelfile_backup.xls.
The biggest challenge with this set up is that whenever there is a newer release or bugfix of myexcelfile.xls, I need to send it out per email to 30 people and hope they replace it with my updated version.
Note that newer versions can replace older versions without any data loss, as all data is stored in the backup file.
Idea: with tools like WGET or BITSADMIN, I was thinking of creating a batch file, that would simply download the latest version from a FTP server, and replace the older version with the newly downloaded one.
Constraints: I shouldn't be using any software that is not native to Windows 7the files can sit in different folders on these 30 computers, therefore the update mechanism would have to identify the path they are in.the update mechanism would have to close the file first before running the update. Question: What is the best way to go about this? A DOS Batch file? Or another excel file that is just the "updater", meaning, it's only purpose is to download the new file from the web and overwrite the old file?
I have been trying for some time to be able to download a file from what I believe to be a FTP site. There are three user input fields which I have been able to identify there names. After these fields are complete there is a button to push which I have also identified it's name.
Once the process of pushing this button is done, an unspecified amount of time must occur for data to be gathered and the option of Open, Save, or Canel appear in a Download window. I would then need to Save and Overwrite an existing file.
No Login or Password is required.
I have been able to automate the open of I.E. and input to the three select fields as well as the necessary button push.
However, I am unable to identify how to automatically save the file into a specified location, with overwrite privileges enabled. Below is my progress
I am using Excel 2007. A few years ago I managed to link a spreadsheet to a particular part of a website. To be specific, I linked a cell to a portion of a table on a website showing the current average price of petrol in the U.K. I also linked a cell to a website which showed the current exchange rate for pounds and dollars. I haven't been able to replicate the procedure.
I'm trying to use Word mail merge with Excel to create mail labels and letters for each person on the list. For example,
Johnson, Michael 7391 Wilson Street Van Nuys, CA 91405
I want to create a mailing label for this person. If possible, I'd like to make the top line of the address "Dr. Michael Johnson," however the format that I'm copying from is last name, first name. And I also want to want to create a letter that starts with "Dear Dr. Last name," such as "Dear Dr. Johnson." This is the website that I want to copy the addresses from:
Doctors in Los Angeles, CA | Primary Care Physicians and Specialists
I have done my homework, but I don't know how to properly paste the addresses into Excel and then use Word to create the labels and letter. I have tried many ways, but I have been unsuccessful.
In Excel 2007, Hyperlinks in cells pointing to jpg files in a subfolder display with internet explorer. On my WinXP/Intnernet Explorer 8/Office 2007 system these links work fine.
When sending the excel and jpg files to another person with Win7/Office 10, jpg hyperlinks work and launch Internet Explorer but come up blank. (Hyperlinks to PDF files work fine and show up in Acrobat, just the jpg's come up blank in Explorer.)
Questions: What is causing this, a setting in Explorer/Win7 or Excel? Can I change Excel hyperlink default software to use something other than Explorer to display the jpg files?
I am trying to use vlookup function with web query data and some of the data has embeded characters I can not see and vlookup does not work (can not match even though numbers appear to be the same). I have attached a test file with the data and formula and a detailed explanation.
Whenever I copy and paste dates from the internet I can't get Excel to recognize the info as dates, thus making it impossible to sort by date. It doesn't matter which site I use, I have the problem with all of them.
Using any of the links above, how I can paste those dates and get Excel to sort the date?
I was curious if Excel was able to pull information off websites and automatically populate a table such as items from Safeway and a price then another column for Walmart with same item and price? I am betting not on its own but I figured this was the best place to ask since I am trying to find an easier way to find savings at the store.
I have used MS Office Excel 2003 for many years without difficulty in XP. Suddenly I find I can't open many of my old documents. I get a message,"Microsoft Office (InfoPath2003) cannot open (the following file, etc.) A second message says, "The form contains XML that is not parsed: An invalid character was found in the content. Line 0, Position 0" Then I get the message "MS Office is not currently set as default." I complete the instructions that follow and it is now corrected but I continue to get the same error messages.
Is it possible to retrieve an arrary of the autofilter criteria. I know this is possible in pre 2007 but with 2007 onwards I can't find a way of doing it.
I know I can get all the available items in a list by using the scripting.dictionary and also by using the visible cells I could see what could be filtered but that is not really accurate for what I want.
If I have multiple columns and look at the filtered information in one column I can retrieve an array of the visible cells from that column but that is not necessarily the criteria that is in the column. i.E. If another column has a filter rows may be filtered that would have otherwise been visible.
How can we "read" information from the VBE Error Trapping options (Break on All Errors/ Break in Class Module/ Break in Unhandled Errors) programmatically?
Background: I am developping a spreadsheet that needs to be sent around to distant users. Some of them might not have the default "Break on Unhandled Errors" setting), which would just make my programme fail or risk to fail...
This issue has been covered in the thread below, but the proposed solution doesn't work on my side (always returning the same output!): [URL] .....
Hint: it has been suggested to look into the registry, which the linked post does.
Ideally, I would love to be able to change the setting programatically, but that seem near to impossible in excel 2007 VBA (unless calling an external programme that closes and restarts excel after having changed the option?...)
Excel 2010, Windows 8.1. I want to retrieve a photo from a folder and paste it into a cell. I have the paste and format process figured out but I'm having trouble putting the file path together to retrieve the photo. If I use the full path, the statement below retrieves "IMAG1234.jpg" and puts it where I want it.
