I have a workbook open and my A column cells are filled with (example) Mike-1 in the first row Mike-2 in the second row and so on. Now I have another folder on the computer with Word documents that I want to hyperlink to. The corresponding Word file is named mike1. So I want Excel to go through column A and Hyperlink to the corresponding Word file.
I'm trying to create a link to a folder and to insert it in a cell. The folder name is: "C:DISCO CTEMPLATES #1". I tried to copy that text and paste it into the cell. Excel recognizes that as a hyperlink but when I click the cell a message appears: "Cannot open the selected file" Could the problem be because of the "#" symbol?
I have column "A" a list of my PDF filenames and File path in Column "B". I want to establish hyperlinks for each of these PDF filenames (column A) and link it with the file path that I generated in Column B.
=HYPERLINK(B1,A1) did it very well, but unfortunately when converting to PDF, the hyperlink is not working, and I believe the conversion retained is only in text, so now my only resort is hardcoding it by VBA.
I want to use script to programmatically create Hyperlink in multiple cells. The Hyperlink will trigger a macro event and run a simple command using the "PC Name" as input variable. The Hyperlink should have:
-Text to display: - different "PC Name" in each cell
-Type the cell reference: - corresponding to the cell where the Hyperlink is inserted
-Link to: - Place in This Document
I tried using cell formula, but it always default to "Existing File or Web Page".
I am trying to use an active cell (i.e. "Sheet2!E7") which always changes, to create a hyperlink on a different sheet to that particular cell. What is happening is I have a master list of current open POs. On a separate sheet I have the PO listed in greater detail. I want the PO number on my master list to have a hyperlink that brings you to my detailed PO on another sheet. Simply, I need a way to turn my active cell into text (not the contents, but the cell itself).
I'm running Excel 2003 and I'm looking for assistance with programmatically creating hyperlinks. I have to update a Shared Workbook on a weekly basis. The cells in column D contain a catalog id and I need to create a hyperlink that includes this id in the url.
What I want to do is insert a new row, enter the catalog id and then create a hyperlink that contains the id. Additionally, the text to display has to be the 8 digit id. Here is an example of the hyperlink.
I m creating a hyperlink in a sheet, pointing from the selected cell in sheet3 to a different cell in the other sheet(sheet1 or sheet2).
The user is supposed to select a cell, and activate the macro. The macro should then create a hyperlink to this cell.
The cell will usually contain a textdata, and the target cell will usually contain same textdata, but in other sheet(sheet1 or sheet2).
In this sheet when we open the data sheet you will find a column named Feild, In the feild column when we click on any text data in a cell it should automatically redirect us to the other sheet of the column where the exact text data is present.
sometimes i'll have some text i want to show in a userform textbox. let's say the text happens to be in a sheet named story, and it is in A1 of the worksheet.
A1 says, for example:
" The next big thing can be found by clicking here " if the note above were on a web page, all you'd have to do is click on 'here' and you are off the the next big thing. but so far, when i use this code to bring the text in story!A1 into the userform textbox all i get is the text. there is no 'clickability' as it were.
Me.textbox.Value = Range("story!A1").Value is there some bit of code magic one can use to make a userform textbox function with html code?
How can I change the text color within a cell when I am using a concatenation formula? I have the following formula;
=" Total Bonus Earned ("&TEXT(A2/VLOOKUP($A$1,PR_DB,2,False),"#0.0%")&" of 2006 Earnings):"
In the text function portion I would like to format the result in red. An example of the result of my formula I am seeking is as follows; Total Bonus Earned (10% of 2006 Earnings): Do I need to create a custom format and if so how do I call it up within the text function?
I need help in making a VBA to create a looping hyperlink drilldown for each cell in the inventory_general wksht.
The purpose of this sheet is to allow a user to click on a hyperlink which will then reference a macro to autofilter the data in the bin_lot worksheet to display all rows for that particular item number.
Apparently, you can't select all the cells and insert a hyperlink because all the hyperlinks will reference the first cell value for autofiltering.
This is what I tried but it's not working obviously.
I have three columns. Column A=" Name", Column B=" Date" and Columnc="Amount". I need to find and go to the correct amount based on a certain name and date as criteria.
I was going to see if it was possible to use this =INDEX(C1:C1000,MATCH(1,(A1:A1000=D1)*(B1:B1000=E1),0)) with a hyperlink, but I can't even get it to work without a hyperlink. I also tried this to find the match= SUMPRODUCT((A1:A1000=E5)*(B1:B1000=EE6)*(C1:C1000)). I found it on a website(I'm not sure how it works.) My next shot was going to be with multiple criteria vlookup, but I can't get anything more than a plain vlookup to work. I'm using excel 2007 non-commercial use.
I want this to link to Work_Log!.Cells(b,1), however instead of grabbing the specific cell, it is pulling the contents of the cell and creating a URL of that. For instance if b = 1 and cell A1 contains the value "yellow" then this code is giving me the hyperlink to WorkLog!Yellow when I want it to read WorkLog!A1
I'm trying to add code that create a hyperlink to a file in a recently created folder in the path of L:Elec Dept ProjectsRELEASED FOR CONSTRUCTION". The code below should find the newly created *BOM*.xls created and created a hyperlink in the next available row starting on row 27 and column O on my worksheet "BOM". The code currently runs with no errors, but I'm not seeing any resulting text with path / links created.
The purpose of this endeavour is to create a cell that when the user clicks on it, it will open up a Word file that THAT particular cell represents.
FIRST STEP: Take the values from Column D (Tract Number), then add a ".doc" extension to it, then put the UNC filepath (\serverdata eports) in front of all of that and put it in Column E. See me example below:
File path plus Tract Number plus Extension
\serverdata eports 7-5-065-085 .doc
.... to generate something like this: \serverdata eports7-5-065-085.doc
SECOND STEP: Use the value (only when the user clicks on the hyperlink) from the cell in Column E and start up Word.
I want to create a hyperlink from an Excel cell to a worksheet tab. Problem is, the tab name changes frequently. The good news is I have a cell that displays all my tab names and automatically refreshes. How can I create a hyperlink that will like to the tab based on the value in that cell?
I need to create a macro that can create a dynamic copy/paste loop. So far what I have is horribly inefficient. Each row in colmn A(minus the header) has a unique number in it. For each unique number, I need to paste it based on the number of column headers in row 1(minus column A). So, if there are 20 column headers, I need to copy cell A2 and paste it 19 times in another sheet. Then, I need to move to the next number in column A and do the same thing. Here's what I have:
You can see that this is not dynamic. If I add another row to my table and rerun the macro, it will not catch it. I've attached a sample file to show you the big picture of what I'm trying to do. The data that I have is in Sheet1, and I'm trying to get it into the format in Sheet3. Rows/columns will be periodically added to the table in Sheet1, so the macro needs to be dynamic to catch that. The data in Sheet3 will always remain, and the macro will add the updated data below the old data in Sheet3.
I have a hyperlink generated from a vlookup that is generated from the result of a combo box click, so the reference in the hyperlink cell will change to whatever sheet the vlookup dictates.
Then I have a macro assigned to a button ( Called 'Go' ) that when pressed clicks on the hyperlink and takes me to that corresponding sheet.
When I recorded the macro, it clicked on the hyperlink cell when it was hyperlinking to let's say Sheet 'April', but if I click on let's say September, in the combo box, then of course the hyperlink now links to the September sheet, but if I click the 'Go' button with the macro attached, it still takes me to 'April'.
surely, the macro simply follows the steps I recorded and therefore should now be clicking on the hyperlink that now says 'September'. Surely, the macro shouldn't REMEMBER that it originally clicked on 'April'.
I have a workbook with over 40, identically formated, sheets. Each sheet has 96 pages. One page for each roll of carpet. To hunt for the next blank page to use, is time consuming.
On each sheet, Range B207:B303, I have IF formulas that will display the carpet ID number for each page, if one is present, or the cell remains blank. In Range C207:C303, I have Hyperlinks to the pages on the sheet.
I need a macro that will search the Range in column B for the first blank cell, then automatically use the Hyperlink next it in column C. Then I can assign the macro to a button, copy and past the button on all 40 sheets. With one click of the button, I will instantly be taken to the page availabel for data entry on that sheet.
I run into is that many of our staff don't know there are tabs at the bottom of the page that show different worksheets. writing some VBA code that would grab the names of all the sheets and create a single sheet with the tabs listed as buttons that would hyperlink to each sheet of it's given name. Kind iof an index for the sheets.
Also bonus if 3 rows could be insterted on each of those pages with a button that links back to the index page.
I have a macro that basically captures all of the errors in my spreadsheet and summarizes them under 3 columns (Value in Cell, Sheet, Cell) so that I can quickly identify the error message as well as it's location. I wanted to take it a set further and add a hyperlink for each error so that the user can quickly go to the error location to investigate. I really don't care where the hyperlink is located as far as which 3 columns.
I have the following Private Sub Worksheet_Activate()
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
updateall = MsgBox("Do you want to update the previous balance?", vbYesNo) If updateall = vbYes Then ActiveSheet.Unprotect ' clear previous payments Range("U3").Select Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlDown)).Select Selection.ClearContents ' update previous balance Range("H54").Select Selection.Copy Range("G11").Select Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks:= _ False, Transpose:=False Range("D7").Select ActiveSheet.Protect End If Application.ScreenUpdating = True
Now, this works just fine if the user clicks the sheet itself. However, generally they are accessing sheets via hyperlinks, which do not seem to activate this code. Is there a better/different way to ensure when the user gets to a sheet via hyperlink, they still see the msgbox?[/b]
