Continual Updates Of Most Recent Information

Aug 12, 2009

I coordinate nearly 200 volunteers for a small non profit using excel. I use excel to keep track of all volunteer information as well as for scheduling shifts. Currently I'm looking for a way to show what the most recent shift a volunteer performed was.

All of this information is kept in different tabs in the same document.

In the "Volunteer" tab you'd find all of the information for the volunteers: name, phone number, email address, number of shifts they've completed, etc.

In the "Shifts" tab you'd find the information for each shift including: Shift Date, Name of Volunteer, Location of shift, etc.

I'd like to find a way to show in the "Volunteer" tab what someones most recent shift was. The only way I've been able to think of would involve a ridiculously complicated series of =if() statements, which would be more hassle than it's worth.

Array Updates

Jun 21, 2007

I have a list of staff on a worksheet, indexed and shown in a drop down list. I also have another worksheet with the same list of staff listed against various tasks. For example:

Sheet 1!Column A:


Sheet2!Column A:


Sheet2! Column B:


What I need to happen is that when I update Sheet1!Column A with new members of staff, the array in Sheet2!Columns A&B automatically updates

Auto Updates

Feb 19, 2008

New to the board: I searched the forum looking for a way for a spread sheet to do an auto update without hitting the F9 key. I have a sheet with external data which updates every 2 seconds that we moniter and I was tried of having to update the sheet every minute or so.
I found this code within the forum.

Sub startme()
Application.OnTime Now + TimeValue("00:01:00"), "this_program" 'calculate every 5 seconds change to suit
End Sub
Sub this_program()
Application.SendKeys "{F9}"
End Sub

Then code works great...but when this sheet is open and in autoupdate mode all sheets that are open also start to update. I tried several things from the help section of VB, like adding a +sign to try to make the old shift/F9 update which only updates the sheet you are on. Nothing I do seems to stop all the sheets from updating.

I think there is probably a simple fix to this and I hope someone might lead me in the right direction.

How To Change Updates Between Workbooks

Apr 15, 2014

I have two workbooks with links between them. When I mail them to a colleague, he saves the work books in a folder, but when he opens them, there is popup message to update the links, and the data on the sheets still refer to their previous location on my pc. How can I change them to the new location without having to setup all the links from scratch again?

Tracking Updates And History

Feb 5, 2014

I have an actions tracker worksheet.

I want to type status update for an action - then when I press enter it should automatically as soon as I press enter:

- cut the text I typed from the cell leaving it blank
- move to the target cell (its in the same row) and "add" that text string (with a date stamp added) to the text already in the target cell.

Every day I type an update against the action in the first cell - and I press enter - it should copy that text into the target cell.

That way I have a complete history of updates against the action with date stamps.

Sounds pretty simple but I don't know where to start.

Example of a simple worksheet attached : Tracker.xls

Screen Updating Off But Still Updates

Formula: Automatically Updates

Jun 25, 2008

My issue is it automatically updates.

I have 4 collumns:
I want to enter in the location in a drop down list, which I know how to do. The thing I'm trying to do is when the Location says To S-1 for example, the date that it is changed "To S-1" the collumn under S-1 will post the date. When location changes to CSM, it will put that day in that collumn, etc.

My issue is that if I use the NOW() or TODAY() function in an IF() then it will update evertime I reopen the file. So the dates won't stay fixed. So if I change the Location to S-1 on the 12th, open it again on the 13th... it will say the 13th not the 12th.

Macro That Updates Other Workbooks

Sep 25, 2008

I have a macro that I use to keep other worksheets updated with current codes and whatnot. The macro opens each workbook in the directory and updates the worksheets. It works fine except that it's only updating 1 sheet within the workbook (whatever sheet is active). I need help actually cycling through ALL the sheets in the workbook. There are 7 worksheets in each workbook. The code I need help with is in red.

Dim FromBook As String
Dim ToBook As String
Dim ToSheet As Worksheet
Dim SPDir As String

Sub Update_Columns()

Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
Application.Calculation = xlCalculationManual

SPDir = "m:SPDWA"
FromBook = ActiveWorkbook.Name

'-Code to loop through files in directory.
'On Error Resume Next
ToBook = Dir(SPDir & "*.xls")
While ToBook ""
If ToBook FromBook Then
Application.StatusBar = ToBook
Update_Data ' subroutine below
End If
ToBook = Dir
'-- close
MsgBox ("Sheets Updated.")
Application.StatusBar = False
Application.Calculation = xlCalculationAutomatic

End Sub
Private Sub Update_Data()
Workbooks.Open (SPDir & ToBook)
For Each ToSheet In Workbooks(ToBook).Worksheets
ActiveSheet.Unprotect "Password"
Update_Column_Fields 'Subroutine to copy codes (not shown here)
ActiveSheet.Protect "Password"
Workbooks(ToBook).Close savechanges:=True

Autofilter Updates Automatically

Nov 5, 2008

I have two worksheets, one that I update information on and the other which just basically points to that information. The second one is for viewing by a different department and has an 'Autofilter' applied so they only see certain information. This works fine as such until the data is changed in the first worksheet, at this point the 'Autofilter' doesn't automatically update, I have to take the filter off then put it back on again.

Is there anyway to ensure the autofilter updates automatically or is there an alternative way of doing this,

Automatic Stock Updates

Oct 4, 2006

For a project, I need a way to automatically have updated stock values in a worksheet to work into various other formulas. I tried the HYPERLINK formula to the individual stock reports, but it wasn't specific enough to simply get the current value of the stock. Is there a way to narrow that formula down to get only that number, and still have it update every time I open the worksheet?

Linking Cells And Conditional Updates

Dec 5, 2008

I am working on a resource model for my company. Essentially it is a list of contractors in the company with their daily rates and start and end dates. I have attached a sample spreadsheet. As you can see, all the information has already been populated with the cost of each contractor per month (formula used - daily rate*18.8 [days worked per month]). Now what I need to do is make the spreadsheet dynamic so if for some reason a contractor end date is changed (contract terminated earlier or contract has been extended) it needs to be reflected on the cost per month columns.

As an example, on the first row the contract period is from Dec 08 to June 09. If it is decided the contractor is now only needed until Feb 09, I need to have that automatically updated so all the figures are deleted in the March, April, May and June columns. Second example, on the first row if the contract period is from Dec 08 to June 09. If it is decided the contractor is now needed until July 09, I need to have that automatically updated with his monthly cost assuming the contractor has worked full time for that month (18.8 days).

Automatic Updates; Concatenating Name Of Day To Date

Jan 28, 2009

I have two problems with my PivotTable: 1. My PivotTable consists of a constant number columns and varying number rows, eg.......

The dates (with data) should continue to update as I add new date records to the source datasheet, but they don't. I try the refresh option for the table, but it only updates for the dates that it was designed for. I also have automatic updates set, but so far nothing is working. I have to rebuild the PivotTable each day after I add new data...

2. Second problem are the date labels on the rows. I need to have them include the literal day of the week such as
Thursday 01/01/09
Friday 01/02/09

Another less urgent problem that I would like to solve is that I have included additional percent calculations for the total column that I am having to rebuild each time. Can that be included in the PivotTable as well?

AutoSort Values Updates From Other Sheet

Dec 23, 2012

A sheet containing all the daily tasks, and according to the tasks that I need my employees to work on a particular day I write YES in the column. The cells that have YES marked next to them are then reflected in a new sheet with the following formula:


Obviously the formula is different for every cell.

The issue with this is that if i have a list of 50 items and i select only 10 (Marked yes) I have a lot of blank spaces in the new list. I need to remove these blank spaces from all columns automatically whenever updating. Is it possible?

Formula That Updates Each Time A New Value Entered
