Create New Sheet From Template - Problems With Names
Nov 15, 2007
I have 8 different workbooks which is 100% similar. Only values registred on each sheet is different. the format and rows/columns are the same.
The sheets is something that changes, when I want to improve layout etc.
I have one Template book where I do the changes and try to export this to the other books (call it upgrades). For macro moduls it works nice, just replace.
The problem is the sheets. When I have changed a sheet, replace it, it would not adopt values from the other sheets.
Ex. In sheet 2 I have named the cell 'B60' for U_KU in the new sheet 1 I expect at using =U_KU in cell I7 would adopt the values from B60 in sheet 2. But nope.
I can see that there is an link to the template workbook in edit ->linkage. Would this cause problem?
On Error GoTo ErrorHandler Dim createsheet As Integer createsheet = MsgBox("Do you want to Create a Sheet for Uncontrolled Discharge?" & vbNewLine & "NOTE: if the sheet already exists, you cannot create a sheet with the same date - select NO", vbYesNo, "Caution")
ErrorHandler: MsgBox "There is already a Sheet Created for that Date.", vbCritical End If
Right now...it will pop up the error message but it will still create a "template" sheet with the suffix (2), (3), etc... instead of canceling the create new worksheet operation.
I have a master template with columns running from A to Q. Most of what she wanted is fairly simple 'if' statements, however she also wants to move the contents of one cell to an adjacent sell based on the number exceeding a certain value,
My problems start when I want to create a new sheet/tab and let her name it. I would have simply created 12 months for her, unfortunately there is a sheet for a number of people and the start of the year can vary. My simple solution was to create a macro that copies the original Template (effectively sheet 1) and puts it into the newly created tab. However this does not copy the above VBA code across
1) I'm relatively new to arrays, but what I need to do is generate a list of file names and the sheets within each one. I would like to use an array for this, but since I don't have much experience.... well....that's why I'm here. Can someone point me in the right direction?
2) And the second part of this.... I was planning on using the FileSystemObject to determine the files in a selected folder and loop through that list of files, opening each one and harvesting the required info (file name and all sheet names). Should I use the FSO or is there something built into Excel that might be better (and also limit the number of dependencies for this little "project" of mine).
I am using a code to create a new sheet using a click button, and currently have a template file that is being used.
Private Sub cmdNewSheet_Click() Sheets.Add Before:=Sheets("Finish"), Type:="C:Documents and SettingsAdministratorMy Documents Stock ControlStockTemplate1.xlt" Sheets(Sheets.Count - 1). Name = txtNewSheet.Text txtNewSheet.Text = "" End Sub
What i want to do is use a sheet in the workbook as a template. The sheet i want to use is simply called 'Temp', and the workbook i am working in is called Stock1.xls. Is this possible? I have had a look at past threads, but cannot find anything that points me in the right direction.
I am currently doing an excel database of students application. I want a macro that creates a duplicate of a template sheet and renaming it based on the name of the student. Meaning once a name appears in the name cell, a sheet of that particular name is automatically created. At the same time, i want all the data regarding the applying student to appear the newly created sheet as shown in the attached file.
how to create a copy of my employee attendance template. Is there a way to create a copy of the template by entering an employee name in the "name" cell of the template and it automatically renames the sheet that employee name and also saves or recopies the template for use with the next employee?
Every month I work on an audit that has data from 35 different distributors. I have code below that puts each distributors audit/sales information on a new tab and each new tab is given the distributors name. This also creates a new workbook for each distributor.
When the new workbooks are created, how can I name each workbook with the distributor name it's being created for? Is it possible to predefine a file path to where these new workbooks will be saved?
The distributor names I'm using are in column AF.
Sub FormatList() 'The code below creates and names a new tab for each members info Dim ws1 As Worksheet Dim wsNew As Worksheet Dim rng As Range Dim r As Integer Dim c As Range Set ws1 = Sheets("Sheet1") Set rng = Range("Database")
'extracts a list of member or distributor names ws1.Columns("R:R"). AdvancedFilter _ Action:=xlFilterCopy, _ CopyToRange:=Range("T1"), Unique:=True r = Cells(Rows.Count, "T").End(xlUp).Row
'set up Criteria Area Range("U1").Value = Range("R1").Value
For Each c In Range("T2:T" & r) 'adds the member name to the criteria area above ws1.Range("U2").Value = c.Value ...............
1) I created a one-sheet template, and a new workbook from that sheet. When in that new workbook I go Insert>Sheet>Other and select the aforementioned one-sheet template, Excel crashes, or if not, it adds the new sheet, but then no longer saves the workbook and starts producing error messages (like: "An unexpected error has ocurred. AutoRecover has been disabled for this session of Excel.").
1a) Now, the complication is that this is working when I do a model operation with a generic template sheet. So I checked the template that I actually want to form sheets after, and Excel finds no errors, nor does it's name contain any unusual characters. What could Excel prevent from working with a template like this?
2) How do I edit a template? The only way I can find is to manually find the spot in finder, open, and save with the same name. But: if I do that, the documents basing on that template don't change accordingly. If they're intended not to, the whole template procedure makes no sense. I could then just as well copy a file. — I've been searching for tutorials on that, but google doesn't even return a single result on Excel "edit template". Therefor my very basic question here.
I have a list of invoice #'s on a sheet named "Temp Sheet".
I have a VBA macro that created a new tab for each entry and named it the invoice #. So basically the vba code created a new tab ( based on the number of invoice #'s on my list ), and named each tab an invoice number. So if I had a list of 10 invoice #'s, named S1-S10, the vba code created 10 tabs, named S-1, S-2,. S-3.....
Now to my question. I have a template sheet I want to copy from ( "Template" ), and select any sheet that starts with "S", and copy/paste this template to.
I have a long customer listing, names 5 to 36 characters and several with their location in the name as well as a few common duplicate names. I am trying to produce sheet where the customers name once selected opens in the customers spreadsheet and data can be added/amended for sales etc.The lists are not in alphabetical order as when created a customer number is automatically allocated. My aim is just to type in the first letter of the name and the dropdown appears the customer is selected and their card appears. I have tried data validation, lookup, vlookup, Dropdown and Match/find. they only return the first record found and no sign of any others. Find returned all instances of the letter appearing in every name.
The easiest way I can describe the scenario I am trying to create, is to use a company list of personnel (my index) and to generate a time-sheet workbook per person based on a pre-populated template. This time-sheet is saved as the persons name and has the persons name entered into cell D:10
I have a workbook which contains two worksheets;
1) An Index sheet which contains a list of names that I wish to use in Q16 downwards (note the length of this list will vary each time I run this)
2) A "template" sheet which I wish to duplicate in new workbooks
3) A second "data" sheet that I wish to copy across in new workbooks
I need a macro that will take the "template" and "data" sheets and copy it into a new workbook, renaming each new workbook to each name in my Index sheet. I also want that same Name to be copied into cell reference D:10 of the "template" each time.
The end result is that I should have a series of new files generated and saved which are named the same as the Index list, with both the "Template" sheet and the "Data" sheet present, with the cell D:10 pre-populated with the Name provided in the "Template" sheet.
I have a workbook that has a total of 128 pages. The problem is that a lot of those pages won't be used. Basically I have a sheet that needs to be filled out for each day up to around 30 days, sometimes more, most times less.
Currently I have created all the sheets that I will typically need (31 daily's, 31 daily printable reports).
Data is entered into the daily (and other spots) and then with the use of formulas transferred to the report sheet which is hidden and then printable with the use of macros.
I also need to withdraw some of this information (CSV File) to be able to populate a database.
Is it possible to have my "daily" page as a template and then create the subsequent pages as I need them? (this would have to be done with a bunch of other report pages as well). For ease of use I would need all the formulas etc that I currently have to be able to be "created" as well. As an example, there is a running total of costs associated with the "daily" pages that would need to be carried forward.
I'm looking to create a dynamic invoice that has one main invoice worksheet that references a worksheet with client billing information. Keep in mind that line items will differ between clients, and ideally I'd want to be able to:
Have date autopopulate, included in every line item Select a client, which populates billing info as well as the invoice # nomenclature specific to that client Be able to have client line items specific to the client populate based on the dropdown I select
Overall, no real specific guidelines, just trying to pick some other people's brains about how to approach a dynamic invoicing template. To preface, we have about 60 clients.
I have a template document, created in MS Word. I want to generate, from Excel, a new document as would happen when you open the template from windows explorer or whatever ie. Template1.doc as opposed to Template.xlt.
The best I've managed to achieve is the opening of the template.
I want to create a standard template used for all commodities. To do this I have several columns that need to be on every quote and then depending on the commodity, a few other columns that need to be added in. I want to automate this so that I have a heading "Commodity" at the top and then a drop down menu with the different options (plastic, glass, etc.). Then once the commodity is selected the necessary columns will be inserted into the template. Is this at all possible using macros or anything else?
I'm trying to create a macro that creates new worksheets with buttons on them that have macros attached. I've been able to produce one worksheet with a button and macro, but when the function that copies the code is looped it crashes out of Excel.
I realise that the usual method of doing this would be by templates, but this code will be run on other people's computers so the template wouldn’t exist in the location that i had specified (I think with my limited experience with VBA - Please correct me if I'm wrong). I've also tried to copy the page with the button on, but this takes too long (even with screenupdating = false) as there are many sheets to be created.
This is a stripped down version of the code that I have created for the purpose of this forum. To recap, the function that creates a new page, with button, with macro attached works. It's when it's looped that it crashes out. I've stepped through the program, and it reaches the second message box, then it gives up on life ..........
I'd like to have a macro that would take a worksheet in this workbook named "Template" and make a copy for each cell between B5:B98 and name that new worksheet "c" and then the value in each of those (B5:B98) cells.
Example: First worksheet named "Main" Second worksheet named "c01" Third worksheet named "c01.1" and so on.....
I have been working on the following VBA code, which should copy specific charts from excel into specific places in a word-template.
I Am quite new with VBA, so I googled the code, changed a few things, and it works exactly as it should - except from one thing. When the Word-document is loaded from the template, I would like the document to be "saved as..." Instead of just opening the template. I have tried
I've been looking around to find a solution for my problem and as a last resort I have decided to make a post, and I will get straight to the point. I have 3 xl Files of relevance:
1 - is my "database" which consists of multiple sheets with different information in each. Each sheet is correlated with each other by one common ID. 2 - is my "template" which is 2 sheets, which functions as a report. The template serves as the Report which will be printed. The data from each row from the database can fill the spaces in the template.
3 - "the tool" xl file is where i have my macros and the mapping for the which columns from the database belong to which cells in the template.
Basically what I'm trying to get to work is: User opens Tool clicks "create Reports" and the tool should then open the database, pick the range of rows from the database put the data into the relevant cell in the template save the "template" with the info on it, close it and do it again with each row of data from the database. So if I pick rows 4 to 34 in my tool, it should create 30 xls files from the template and fill in the data from each row into each newly generated "report".
I have been working on a template using validation tool so as to create drop down lists. Now I have to select data from a combination of two fields.
Example: I need info from Dataset A and Dataset B to create a new drop down list from Dataset C.
I tried with If AND formula =IF(AND(B4="Test";B6="de10");"ok";"no") where due to the selected values I got Ok as a return answer. However I need to have a dropdown list of relevant values selected and I am having some issues.
When I name my group (Dataset C) as DE10 so that it can be linked to DE10 value (dataset B) so that I can do a validation then I get an error as DE10 is an excel field name; therefore I thought of the IF AND solution as I was thinking of doing so that I can name Dataset C as XYZ (instead of DE10) on the data sheet however I am having some trouble in getting the drop down list to work.
Basically I need a drop down list from dataset C when certain info is picked from Dataset A and Dataset B.
I had created a base data with evaluator and performance appraisals templates which should be sent to each evaluator for filling up the forms based on templates
Macro that would i require will be
Where in my base data if i select filter of "Arun", i will performance appraisal templates in column I. Next, i have sheets individually created templates which refer column I
So, based on arun filter if i select, it should create a new workbook for arun and six individual sheets of employees reporting to him with a base data and appraisal templates similarly if i select anita in filter , it should create a new workbook for anita and six individual sheets of employees reporting to her with a base data and appraisal templates
Is there any way to create a default template that will apply all the same formatting, print options, etc to every new workbook that I create. I guess what I am asking is a way to change the excel defaults for text type, border size/color, etc.
