I've got a variable path for a file stored in a cell inside a worksheet that I need to convert to the old dos format (no spaces).
From c:Awesome FileFTPMy Awesome File.txt
The actual path/file name is much longer and is determined by multiple fillable fields, cells, and drop down menu's so the only feasible way at the moment seems to be that I need some code to convert the file/path name all at once.
After doing a little searching on google I came up with several that could determine the short path name of the actual workbook, but none that could convert a path that was different from the workbook.
I am using an XY scatter chart that displays the planned path and an actual path as I go. The planned path is set up in 100' increments and goes 12000' and actual path varies along the way.
My data that I use is the Northing (ft), Easting (ft) and Vertical Section (ft) for both the planned path and actual path.
I was wondering if there was an east way to get that information from the chart or if there is a formula that would allow me to calculate distance between the two points by using the data I use for my chart.
I've been working with the getshortname() API, but have found that it has trouble handling strings that are already in short name format. I used a trim function to work around this. Now I find another problem; the API doesn't change paths with spaces in them. for example:
Here is the Private Declare Function GetShortPathName Lib "kernel32" Alias "GetShortPathNameA" (ByVal longPath As String, ByVal shortPath As String, ByVal shortBufferSize As Long) As Long
Private Sub Test() Dim longPathName As String longPathName = "H:WCMGMTWC ProdBackup2" ' 'Get the size of the string to pass to the string buffer. Dim longPathLength As Long longPathLength = Len(longPathName) Dim shortPathName As String shortPathName = Space$(longPathLength)..............................
One of my commandbuttons will every now and then be covered by the FormulaBar, is it possible to assign a short key/ hot key for its function (CTRL+q)?
CommandButton's code: Private Sub CommandButton3_Click() Select Case ActiveCell.Interior.ColorIndex Case xlNone: ActiveCell.Interior.ColorIndex = 3 Case 3: ActiveCell.Interior.ColorIndex = 6 Case 6: ActiveCell.Interior.ColorIndex = 10 Case 10: ActiveCell.Interior.ColorIndex = xlNone End Select End Sub
I wrote a little macro and put in into presonal workbook. I cant seem to get the short cut to work. When I got into " Tools > Macro > Macros > Options" and put in a letter that I want to use for short cut it does not work.
I am trying to run this macro in another workbook.
I have a long list of locations in an excel spreadsheet, stating either the country (eg India) or for US locations the state (in a two letter format, eg NY). I need to change all the state location to say "USA". How can I do this, without doing 50 find and replaces? Can I do something based around the fact all the USA locations are two letters, whereas all the others are longer?
finding or developing a compressing technique, which can compress a 7 number string i.e., 11,10,1,2,10,7,5 down to 6 or 5 lossless, that would be amazing.
I already researched many compression technique; Huffman, Run-Length and LZ78 which all do well on large data sets and I only have a few numbers. If it helps by converting the numbers to binary for better compression then I what to known. I know that a solution could be impossible as we would know about it already but may be someone knows a trick to get rid of one digit.
Loaded M/S Office 2007 on the puter, works well, can create shortcut to program but not to a file. I followed the correct procedure but the shortcut will not work, I just end up with a blank screen. If I go the long way around through excel -open-folder-file, yes it works but we do love our shortcuts don't we
I work for a company that place consignment stock in hospitals. We can generate a report with short to expired products on it. I need a way to automaticly identify and send and email to the appropriate sales person to notify them that they have a product in a hospital that will expire.
I would like a formula to put in column F that will total the daily over/short.
I would like to place this formula in every row in Column F, but return empty "" if the next row is not empty, if however the next row is empty total the over/short column for the day. Keep in mind that a zero value in column E is not empty.
I need to extract key cell info from a master list when one of the cells meets a certain criteria.
Example: Each row of the main sheet represents a Purchase Order with columns A-M each containing text, numeric, or currency values regarding that PO. Column F represents a 4-digit activity code that defines exactly what was purchased. If the activity code for a row is in the 1000 series (1000 -1099) I need to assign info from 3 other columns (say B, E, &G) to a subsequent sheet for tracking.
My limited Excel-o-vision has built this: (sheet 1 represented as FY10) =IF(AND('FY10!F4>=1000,'FY10'!F4
I have a variable ("DestFile") that defines a path to a file (used in saving the file)...
I'm in the process of getting a Sub to hyperlink to this file, but in some circumstances, I may only want to hyperlink to the folder, not the actual file...
How would I go about trimming the "DestFile" address to get a "DestFldr" address?...
An example of "DestFile" might be; S:BryanFor KenGulf ConstructionST0609014-t.xls (the file name length may vary) What code can I use to consistently trim it back to; S:BryanFor KenGulf Construction as the "DestFldr" variable?
I recently moved to Central America and now am working on models that are either in $ or in the local currency (Q). I do not want to change my default currency value in the regional settings of the control panel because it is more convenient for me to stay in $ but it is a pain everytime I want to set a worksheet in Q and not in $.
So, I am wondering how I can change the default values in the currency drop-down list on the Home toolbar under Numbers in Excel 2010.
Currently, it gives me the change to apply the following currencies:
- $ English (US) - £ English (UK) - € Euro (€ 123) - ¥ Chinese (PRC) - fr. French (Switzerland)
Instead of either the £, ¥ or fr., I would like to have listed the Q, my other frequently used currency.
I have an existing Cash Flow Report that has a column of abbreviated/shortened (WBS Element) title where each cell contains a unique three lettered/numbered amount of characters (Example: 200). These three abbreviated character cells are specific and relate to their full/longer (SAP WBS Element) title (Example: WBS DWRRI-BW066-200).
In my attached excel model (Find, Locate, and Align WBS Elements to Cash Flow Report.xlsx), I need a formula for the, "Cash Flow Report WBS Elements" sheet in cells B3 thru B11 that will look at the abbreviated three lettered/numbered (WBS Element) titles in cells C3 thru C11, then search and recognize its unique counterpart contained in the, "SAP WBS Elements Export" sheet and return this full/longer (SAP WBS Element) title to the, "Cash Flow Report WBS Elements" sheet in cells B3 thru. B11, just to the left of its abbreviated/shortened (WBS Element) title.
