Create A Hyperlink Macro
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.

Create Hyperlink To Folder
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?

Create Hyperlink In Userform Textbox
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?
Create Hyperlink On Selected Cell
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.
Create Hyperlink In Active Cell
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.
Use Active Cell To Create Hyperlink
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).
Create Hyperlink To Result Of Lookup
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.
Create A Shortcut To A File, Not Hyperlink
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?
Create Hyperlink From 2 Cells, Then Open Word
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.
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
eports 7-5-065-085 .doc
.... to generate something like this:
Use the value (only when the user clicks on the hyperlink) from the cell in
Column E and start up Word.
VBA To Create A Hyperlink Drilldown For Each Cell
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.

Macro To Hyperlink
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'.
Follow Hyperlink With Macro

Macro & Hyperlink
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.

Macro To Hyperlink That Name To The Address \BIGENTERPRS0001C$
I have an office map with a somewhat large number of hostnames similar to the structure shown below. I would like to have a macro scan through the hostnames (they all start with "BIGENTERPRS") and change them into a clickable hyperlink that points to "\hostnamec$". So for example, one hostname is "BIGENTERPRS0001". I want the macro to hyperlink that name to the address \BIGENTERPRS0001C$
Open Hyperlink In Cell With Macro Code
how to open a Hyperlink directly. I have writen some code which allows me to copy over certain cells from a large list of hyperlinked files. However I am struggling to figure out how to open the hyperlink without actually writing the hyperlink address into the code. The hyperlinks are the file names and not the file paths. In essence I'm aiming to just get the macro to "click" the hyperlink to open it. Once the file is open the rest of my code will work, it is just this one sticking point.
Hyperlink Address From Hyperlink Formula/Function
I am having a slight problem copying hyperlinks. I have written some code that sorts data by date and then creates a simple diary. It originally placed the name of the event in the new diary sheet. What I would like to do is instead of copying the name into this new sheet copy a hyperlink that I have created to the company's website for that event.
I can create the hyperlink using hyperlink(B1,A1) where A1 is the company name and B1 is the web address but since the new sheet will not have the underlying data I need to actually copy the values and format of the hyperlink rather than the formula.

Hyperlink Does Not Cause 'worksheet_activate' Macro To Run
I have the following

If updateall = vbYes Then
' clear previous payments
' update previous balance
Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks:= _

Using A Macro To Create Hyperlinks
I currently have a macro that uploads information on a daily basis for hours worked on campaigns per employee. It then converts the data into a pivot table where it uses relative references to copy the total from the bottom and paste them on to another worksheet. I am now trying to use hyperlinks to link the total back to the pivot table. With daily updates though, the data is constantly being pushed down and is located in a new cell each time. How can I get a hyperlink to work for an area thats constantly changing?
Macro: Create A New Workbook
I've created what I thought was going to be a simple macro which will create a new workbook, rename it "Applications Calls", then copy a pivot table/report from another workbook and paste it. Here's my rather amateur code which doesn't work.

Macro - To Create A Number
I would like some help with a macro code. I need to create a number say in cell I24 on sheet 1. this number is a sum of a random iteration and so will be differnet each time.
i want to run 5000 iterations through and record the 5000 different numbers that appear in this cell into a list - say going from D10-D5009 in sheet 2 of the workbook... - then i will perform the relevant statistical analysis on the data...
so essentially i would like the macro to hit the F9 key 5000 times and then record those 5000 results for me on sheet 2...
Macro To Create New Sheet
I want to create a Macro that will create a new worksheet when the user so desires using a message box.
The workbook contains 4 tabs, for example, named as follows: (1) template (2) 250 (3) 825 and (4) 975. I want the marco to work as follows:
1- Macro will ask user "please type store number"
2- Macro will then make of copy of "template" and create the new sheet
3- if user types in "860", I want to the macro to name the new sheet "860" and place the new worksheet between sheets 825 and 975.
Also - this may be asking too much but is it also possible to also prevent user from entering non-valid numbers? The valid numbers are 001 - 999. ie; if user enters "1500", return message "invalid entry".

Use Macro To Create Dynamic Ranges
I am looking for a macro that will allow me to create a dynamic range based on the settings I give it. I would like the dynamic range to be called tracking_number and it to have a reference to =Offset(MainReport!$A$2,0,0,COUNTA(MainReport!$A:$A),1)
If this is possible I would really appreciate it. The reason I need this is because I have 2 workbooks. They are the one with the MainReport in it and then the Master workbook. Every day the workbook containing the MainReport is overwritten with more data, so I can not store a dynamic range and reference it each day.
Create A Macro To Transpose Data
I have a spreadsheet, with over 9000 line items. And to give you guys an idea, these items are products that we carry at our stores (convinience stores). Most of our items are sold to the customer by eaches or unit, but we do carry beverage items which can be sold several ways (single can, 6pk, 12pk, 24pk etc). Anyway, on the spreadsheet, these sell units(single, 6pk, 12pk etc) have their own line, per each sell unit. I want them to be all in one line. Heres what it looks like:
I want columns F, and G's values be transposed to the first line, after the RET column. Like this:
Macro To Create And Compile Information
Currently where I work we print out registers to keep track of student attendances. This is done by merging an excel document that contains all the details of the names, days, dates , times, student groups and rooms of each lesson (each row contains the details for one lesson) with a word document containing the appropriate list of students in each specific group along with blank mail merge fields that relate to the excel document.
There are often 100 lessons a week meaning it takes an age to merge all the documents to create the registers.
Instead of this method I'd like the tutor to print off their own register by opening the excel document and clicking a button at the end of the appropriate row that contains the details for the lesson they are teaching. This would then take the details from that row and generate the appropriate register on another worksheet. Importantly it would have to list the correct group of students for each lesson - the names of these groups would be listed on other sheets.
Im guessing macros would be the right way to do this, but I have no real knowledge of them so alternatives would be helpful. Can anyone point me in the right direction? I've included a sample of how it would look with just one lesson in the excel doc.
Macro: Create & Name New Worksheets
I have a workbook that is tracking part-time faculty appointments. Names and appointment details are entered on the first worksheet ("Entry"). I have another worksheet that pulls data from Entry to generate a summary of the salary for each appointment. Right now, this worksheet is called "Template" that needs to be copied and renamed for each appointment entered.
So, Entry could have up to 56 columns of data entered. There are nearly 100 rows of information for each entry (portrait-style for ease of printing). Columns A and B are information and will not have any entries. Column C is the starting point for the entry of appointments. Cell C5 will have the first appointment Name.
What I want is to create a macro that will copy the Template worksheet as many times as there are names entered from C5 and beyond (D5, E5, F5, etc.) When it creates each new worksheet, I want it to rename the new worksheet with the contents of row 5. For example, if "Smith, J." (without the quotes) is entered in C5, I want a copy of the worksheet Template called Smith, J.
The renaming of the sheet is important because I have a cell in Template that pulls the worksheet name, which is then referenced by cells in Template to pull the information pertaining to that appointment.
What I have seen here on Mr.Excel is a macro to rename a worksheet based on a specified cell, and I've seen something that looks like it created new worksheets, but I haven't seen the two put together like I'm looking for. I am also not that adept at the VBA, so I haven't really been able to figure out how to cobble it together myself.
- I have two worksheets: Entry and Template
- Names are entered into cells (C5, D5, E5, F5, etc.) on Entry
- I need to copy Template as many times as Names are entered and rename each new copy with that Name (also, new sheets should be generated at the end (right) of the current list of worksheets)
- The whole process can be activated by a button on Entry
Create A Separate File After Macro Done
How can I code to create a copy of a worksheet in an excel file I am using a macro on, after the macro is done processing? In other words, when the macro completes processing, create a copy of the worksheet labelled "Output", and save it in a directory that the user chooses? Also, would it be possible to create a .pdf file?
To Create A Macro Based On Events
I am trying to create a macro based on events. The event should be triggered as soon as the user leaves the cell by clicking on a different cell or by using the arrows on the keyboard. So if the user type SONY in cell A1, A2-A10 will be populated right on the spot automatically based on the word Sony, for example A2 will have electronic populated automatically, A3 will have Japan...and so on
If the user enter GMC instead in cell A1, A2-A10 will be populated right on the spot automatically based on the word GMC. A2 will have Automaker populated automatically, A3 will have USA, ...and so on.
After I created a small VB sample it looks like I need to press the execute button every time to run the program in VB instead of triggering an event automatically.
Here is a small sample I am using to test:
If Range("a1").Value = 10 Then
Range("c1").Value = "Yes"
Range("c1").Value = "No"
Macro To Create Multiple Graphs
I would like to create 2 graphs for each set of data in my worksheet. the first set of data that I would like to create a 2D line chart for is in cells AQ3:AS19 (not sure if that is the correct syntax??) and the second is AW3:AY3.
I would like to position the first chart (top right corner) at BA3 and re-size it so that it is 17 cells tall and 7 cells wide. the second chart should be positioned at BI3 and the same dimensions.
I would like to delete the chart legend for both graphs
then I need to repeat about 1000 times. Each new set of data starts 20 cells lower (ie. AQ3, AQ22, AQ41..). Or every time "Band" is found in column AP.
Macro Create Pivot Tables?
I created a macro by using the macro recorder. It creates some columns and formulas and does some formatting, then it is to take the data and create some pivot tables.
for some reason it gets stuck on the first pivot table. It creates it, but it wont add the first field to the table.
Macro To Create Duplicate Rows
On some occasions the part number has several to collect but the output from the system we use will output this as a sinle line and a quantity of 2 for instance. I would like a macro to indentify all of the parts with a quantity more than 1 and insert a duplicate line with that quantity.
On the attachement sheet 1 is an example of how the data may look, sheet 2 is how I would like it to be after the macro has been run (but within the same sheet)
Macro Button To Create New Line?
I have 2 tabs on my spreadsheet. The first has some text at the top in cells A1 and A2, and that's it. The second tab I need a script for. Basically, I need some sort of macro button and a text box. I want people to be able to type some text in a cell or box on the 2nd tab, hit a button, and the text that has just been typed will be copied and pasted in to the next available cell down on the first tab.
For example, say the 1st tab had 'title' written in cell A1, and 'hello' written in cell A2. If I were to go to the 2nd tab, type 'bonjour' in to a cell or text box, and hit a button, the text 'bonjour' would be copied, the script would read the 1st tab and see that cells A1 and A2 already had text in them, and so paste 'bonjour' in to cell A3.
Macro Will Not Create New Worksheet And Workbook
Im trying to create a document that creates a new workbook when certain functions are selected and have written a macro to assist with this. Basically im working on a comprehensive checklist with all possible scenarios that will need to be tailored for use, so you can create a document with just what is applicable to you and not the whole checklist. I have attached a sample of what i mean, along with clearer descriptors of what the document is designed to do.
Macro To Create New Workbook With Name Other Than Book1?
I'm tryign to create a macro which will copy certain worksheets into a new workbook (i.e. Book1), and the macro continues to work with this Book1. Is it possible to create a more robust macro which will rename Book1 into something usable (i.e. "Report")? because if the session of Excel has already had another worksheet, it will go to Book2, and then the macro won't work.
