Continual Updates Of Most Recent Information

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.

Auto Updates
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.

Autofilter Updates Automatically
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,

Formula: Automatically Updates
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.

Automatic Stock Updates
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
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
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?

Most Recent Value
I have 31 cells (say in A1 thru A31), representing days of the
month, that daily number values will be entered. I want to be
able to select the value in the most recent day cell, not the
most recent updated cell...
i.e. the cell in the A1:A31 range closest to the A31 cell.

For example...
Say I have values: 2,4,7,12 in A1 thru A4, I want the value
in A4, even if I just updated Day 2's cell... because A4,
or Day 4, is closer to the end of the month.

Table That Updates Automatically With The Name Highest Score
I want to create a table that updates automatically with the name & highest score top.

I.E. currently I have :-

Dates starting in A4,
names B2 : K2,

Not too fussed about having the date in the results table but i'd like something like :-

Scott 4 points,

Tony 2 points,

I would like a table to automatically sort a table (preferably on sheet 2) so it looks like :-

Geoff 7
Scott 4
Tony 2

Is this possible ?, I only have 6 rows of data so far so it can be re-arranged if needs be and data will be added each week.

Count (Sum) Most Recent Value Only
I am familiar with SUMPRODUCT and {SUMIF}, but I am stumped on how to create a formula that can sum (or count) the only the most recent entry for each Name. The Name field is dynamic and constantly updated with a unique reference number, so I don't want totals by Name/Type, but rather only the newest Ref for each Name by Type.


Should return;
Recent_Type____NOT Total

Hopefully this explains it all. Looking forward to any input or suggestions to keep this a simple automated process.

Average Minus Most Recent Row
I have a table in a sheet where the rows of data are filled in automatically from other sheets. Each row represents a different week. The data, (lifted from from the relevant worksheet for each row) represents the no. of calls in each week.

Now, I've set up an average to be calculated from the data - it'll do this for every row as long as there is data present. (If the row's corresponding worksheet doesn't have any data the result will be "NA()" - not included in the calculation.)

However, I don't want the average to include the no. in the "most recent" row, as this is "live" data and until the week is over does not represent the data for a full week and therefore skews the average.

So I want the average to exclude the data in the most recent row with a numerical value in it and not a "NA()"

ie - column could be ......

Run Formula On 20 Most Recent Entries
I have spreadsheet set up to calculate me and my friend's handicaps. I have set it up almost completely. The only problem is that I forgot one little detail when setting it up: handicaps only calculate the 20 most recent rounds of golf.

Rather than only storing the newest 20 rounds, I would rather add a layer to my formula to filter out older records for me.

=ROUNDDOWN(AVERAGE(OFFSET('Score Entry'!$I$2,,,VLOOKUP(COUNTA('Score Entry'!I2:$I$400),Rounds,2,TRUE)))*0.96,1)

In the "Score Entry" tab on my spreadsheet the date is in column D. Is there someway to modify this formula to filter anything beyond the previous 20 rounds?

For the sake of better communication the "Rounds" named range is a list of the number of total rounds played and the corresponding number of rounds that should be used to calculate the handicap.

List Recent Changes To Document?
Is there a way to list the recent changes to an excel document on the document itself?

For example, I have just 4 or 5 columns in the sheet, but out the the right on the 7th column I'll have a header that says "Recent Changes". Below that for X amount of rows, I would like it to keep a running change list something like this:

B14 was changed from '6.021' to '6.5' by username on 10/21/07 3:45 pm
A23 was changed from 'Sally' to 'Billy' by username on 10/21/07 2:30 pm

I thought this up by looking at the way the "Track Changes" functionality works on the Tools menu. That will highlight the cells in blue as they are changed and will also let someone look back through changes to let them accept or deny.

Delete All Rows Except Most Recent Date
Have a sheet with 24K rows. Column A is client name. Column B are check dates. The info is sorted by client then check date. Clients can have one to many check dates, so I client is listed as many times as there are check dates. If ten checks, then ten rows for that client. One check then one row for that client.

I only want to keep the last/most recent check date for each client, deleting all other rows for that client with check dates before the most recent. I believe I need to step through the file comparing column A, row by row, to see if I have a match for the next row in A. If no match I keep that row, because there is only one check, and move down one. If a match, then I delete the current row.

How to code this is my problem. Is it a loop?

MAX Function To Populate The Most Recent Date In A Series
I have used the MAX function to populate the most recent date in a series.
-EX. the most recent date input into the cells S8, T8, U8 will populate in cell R8. There is a default value of 0-Jan-00 that automatically populates in cell R8 as a result of the MAX Function. Any value that is input into cell S8, T8, U8 will show in cell R8 immediately after being input as a result of the MAX Function.

I need cell R8 to remail blank until the last of cells S8 or T8 or U8 has been input (in no specific order). Once the last cell has been filled; it is only at that time I need cell R8 to show that most recent date input into any of cells S8 or T8 or U8. I can't hide the column, I need cell R8 to remain empty until the last of the three cells- S8, T8, U8 has been filled (the last cell filled will not always contain the largest value or most recent date).
