DDE Change Tracking

Aaron Blood has created an excellent DDE Change Tracking.

The file is in the download area of [url]

The macro, in the xls file, archive the data from top (a1) to the End of the worksheet.

I want invert the way to file/archive the data… copying all the cells already filled, a cell down and filing the top ( A1...) with the last DDE value (In the TracK sheets).

How can I do that?

The primary code is:

Sub Change_Tracker(Watch As String, TrackOn As String)

Dim NextCell As Range, r As Double, c As Double

With Worksheets(TrackOn)
r = .Rows.Count
Set NextCell = .Cells(r, 1).End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0)
End With

Change Tracking Automatically
I have a spreadsheet i would like to have changes tracked to automatically. I know it's only a matter of clicking a few buttons to get this to happen, but i was wondering if there is a way to have excel do this by default when i open the file. I would also like to have the changes highlighted automatically.

Inventory Tracking ...

We need to track inventory from when its taken, when it was installed and we need to know every month when inventory is counted how much do we have on hand in our truck....

I'd like to make a vba macro in excel which will be just like "Track changes" feature. I'd like to track changed cells and when and who did it. (Date, User, Cell, Last value, New value).

Tracking My Employee's History Of Changes.
I am using excel as point of sale book (to record customer name, service, and total price etc.) at our hair salon. We have employees that may be there to manage alone from time to time, and enter clients into excel.
Our worry is straight forward, and involves them erasing what they wrote. I am confident that the actual service and price is entered at the beginning, but want to track their changes to their own entries.

The "track changes" would work if it "tracked changes" after entry. But it seems to track the last change from saving. For example....the employee enters $40.25 presses enter--after she knows she can get away with a change, she may erase it altogether or change it to say $16.75.

Tracking Who Opens Spreadsheet
I have a spreadsheet that can't be password protected but this doesn't mean just anyone should be accessing it. Is there a way to record who opens it and when? Ideally I could place some code into the spreadsheet that recorded on a sheet who has opened it and when. This will detract certain nosy people from accessing it!

Tracking Open Trades
I want column J to reflect the total amount of all trades which were open at the time the trade on the row is closed.

(the data is sorted according to closed trade times).

So while the trade on row 4 is the first trade to close, there were other trades also open prior to the closing. I need to show the total amount in column E of all trades which were open during the time window that the trade on row 4 was open.

Inventory Trend Tracking
Ive got an inventory of about 2000+ items as well as items that can be broken down into more specific groups such as colors, designs and sizes. What i want to know is how to get the correlation, thats excel function CORREL(), of each item for the time weve had it. The data I can provide is the monthly quanitity sold of the item.

For example I have item A.

Sold Month
5 1
7 2
4 3
5 4

and so on. Easy enough to do. My only problem is I would have to manually do that 2000+ times for my entire inventory to figure that out. What I wants is a command that can verify my item code, which is simple enough as I can convert the item code to something as simple as a string or leave it as is. Not every item has been in the system an equally long time though. If that were the case i could just copy it with blank cells to fill the space and copy and paste all the way down. So I need to find a way to get an IF statement to correlate the corresponding cells IF the item number matches the target cell. What I have right now is something to this extent.

Formulas For Baseball Tracking Spreadsheet
My spread sheet reads column A teamname, B games played, C wins, D Losses, E Ties, F winning % and G GAMES BACK

I'm looking for a formula to determine games back based on wins, losses, ties and also based on the number of games played.

example, team 1 played 9 games and is 8-0-1. Team 2 has played 9 games and is 8-1-0. Team 2 is would be a 1/2 game back. Team three is 8-0-0 also a 1/2 game behind team 1 but tied with team 2.

So in column G it would read team1 "-", Team 2 ".5" and team 3 ".5"

Tracking Status Of Open Work
I currently use a spreadsheet to track my work and I would like help automating some of the functions. I don't want to use macros if at all possible. I have some formulas but it doesn't do enough.
what i do is audit other peoples work and send out error notifications when needed. i use the spreadsheet to help me tack the status of the error notifications. when I send out an error notification the auditee has up to 3 chances to rebut the error so i need to keep track of where the follow up lies and when the error is finally accepted or removed (process completed).

I would like column U to tell me where we are in the process...
1.notification sent (by the auditor)
2.reply received (either accepted or 1st level removal request by the auditee)
3a. if error accepted- process complete
3b. if removal request-notifcation sent(by the auditor - error removed or error remains)
4.if still an error(following 3b) - reply received (either accepted or 2nd level removal request by the auditee)
5a. if error accepted- process complete
5b. notification sent (by the 2nd level reviewer - either error removed or error remains)
6.if still an error(following 5b) - reply received (either accepted or 3rd level removal request by the auditee)
7a. if error accepted- process complete
7b. notification sent (by the 3rd level reviewer - either error removed or error remains) & process complete (3rd reviewer decision is final)

I would like the V column to be the "date of last action"
since the notification bounces between people, i need to know who is currently responsible for followup & how long they've been sitting on the work. i would like the date to populate based on the manually inputed fields where I input sent & received dates for each level of action.

the spreadsheet is too wide for the post so i will put it on a website...

the columns are all titled and all manually inputed except for column U which is the one that I want to autopopulate with the current status of the error notification. the formula is a IF statement but due to the 7 formula limitation It came out too simple. it's better than nothing but I want it to be more specific.

Tracking Date And Time Overlaps
I'm trying to figure out a formula that would track a student's class schedule to see if there is a date/time conflict. I'm uploading an example of a ficticious student named Amanda for you to review.

According to the example, I should be prompted that there's a conflict between Amanda's first two classes because they both meet on Monday (M) and Wednesday (W) and the time during each of those classes overlaps.

This will need to be checked per student, based on their ID in column A.

Job Hour Tracking With Pivot Tables
I have an Excel timesheet that the supervisor loads the time (in and out) for all the shop employees. These employees may work up to six different jobs in one day at various points throughout the day. I have no problem with calcs and formats on the daily time entry tab (sheet1). What I need is a way to track each job using a running total so that as the job is in progress we can see how we are doing against estimated hours. I thought perhaps I should at least make a weekly time summary pivot table thinking that it would make it easier to calculate, but it didn't help with running totals. The summary included (5) copies of the same daily entry tab (sheet1) just given a different name, in this case ..a simple date change and save the sheet with the date used. OK, here's the problem. How do I create a running total that would track each job? I forgot to mention earlier that each daily time entry sheet is saved and named by the date for which it represents. The weekly time summary pivot table works fine....but it only gives me the grand total of hours worked for each day...not a running total summary. I can view the pivot tables and go to the calcualtor and add the hours up per job, but that's defeating the purpose. Anyway, I hope this is clear enough to at least get some responses. Then, maybe by then I'll have a better understanding how to ask the right questions.

Tracking Elapsed Time With No Date
I have an assignment to audit the time it takes convert a printing press from one job to the next. I've been using a watch to take the readings in hours, minutes, and seconds.

I recorded them in my spreadsheet, as h:mm:ss, but it showed a date also. I think I finally got that resolved, but now, when I try to subtract one time from another time, I get an incorrect answer. I think I need to convert all of these times into decimals, as in 13.23.44, as oppossed to 13:23:44.

One post on page 1 of my search said to multiple A1*24, but I don't fully understand. I tried that, but 11:30 became 11.50?

I need to extract the set up time, or job to job changover time in a decimal format if possible. There are other tasks being done with those numbers later in the spreadsheet that are more conducive to decimals, than the time format.......

Call Tracking Sheet - Electronic
I am trying to turn this call tracking sheet into an electronic one. Is is possible to have check boxes in the empty cells that will allow someone to just click them as they go along and it would create a total at the bottom to avoid countless hours of counting these sheets. Or even turn "Trans CM" into a button that you can click and it would keep track of how many times that specific button was clicked.

FIFO Inventory Method Balance Tracking
I've been trying to come up with either a formula or a macro (I'm a novice in VBA so it would probably take me forever to figure it out) to track the FIFO balance (First In-First Out) of items at any given point in time. I have attached a sample spreadsheet with the example and all the notes that might help figuring this out.

I want to stress that I'm not trying to calculate any cumulative balance or any FIFO pricing whatsoever; just separate tracking of the purchase balances at any point in time after varous sales using the FIFO balance.

Call Log Tracking Issues With NOW() Looking For Answer ASAP
The employees have 3 chances to contact the customer before sending out written notification. The goal is to only have the employees enter an "x" in an attempt cell which will cause the date and time attempt was made to autopopulate in another cell. I've been using an IF formula to do this [=if(A1="","",NOW()], but each time a move down to another customer it adjusts the date and time for all other fields as well. How do I lock in the date and time they marked the cell without it affecting others. This is basically how the attempts are set up. The only unprotected cells would be those under A2-C2. Example would be employee places and x in cell A3 and D3 autopopulates the date and time A3 was modified. The problem I am running into is when A4 is modified, it not only autopopulated D4, but it changes D3 to the time A4 was modified as well.
1 Attempt Attempt1 Attempt2 Attempt3
2 1 2 3 Date/Time Date/Time Date/Time

(A-C are over the word attempt, A2=1 B2=2 C2=3, D is over Attempt1, E is over Attempt2, F is over Attempt3)

Time/date Tracking Only During Business Hours
i work dispatch at a company and we're trying to track how long it takes for a technician to arrive on-site. my worksheet currently includes the date of call-in (E1) , time of call-in (F1), Service Date (G1), Service Time (H1), among many other field. the easy solution is to use the formula (G1+H1)-(E1+F1), and use the answer as the total amount of time, but the problem is if a customer call in at 3:00 PM and we service them at 9:00 AM the following day, it looks like it took 18 hours to arrive on-site, when in reality, since we close at 5:00 PM and open at 9:00 AM, we only took 2 hours to arrive on-site. is there any formula i can write to account for non-business hours and weekends, or is this a bit above what i should expect from excel?

Creating Personal Expense Tracking Form
I'm trying to make a spreadsheet that will track my expenses. What happens is I enter in my daily expenses in a "Notes" worksheet. This includes the date, whether it's a debit/credit, and what category is it (rent, tuition, entertainment, work income etc). It looks like this

Date - - - - - - Debit - - - Credit - - - Category
4-May-06........................$30 ..........Dining out

Then I have another worksheet called "Expense outline" which pretty much sums all expenses in each category and displays a summary. So it would show how much I have spent in total on each category for each month. Looks something like this

Dining out..........$100

So what I did for the Entertainment summary for the month of May was, I used a SUMIF(column of categories, "Entertainment", column of credits). This will look for the category name "Entertainment" in my "notes" worksheet, and sums the corresponding amount from the credit row. The problem is, I also want to include it so that it will automatically differentiate between the different months. Right now, when I'm choosing the column of categories for May, I select only the cells in the month of may when I'm choosing my column of categories and credits.

For example:....................

Count Formula- Spreadsheet That Is Being Used For Tracking Work Completed Each Day In A Week
I have a spreadsheet that is being used for tracking work completed each day in a week. Each day has 5 columns and 10 rows of data to potentially be entered, some of the data is text and some is numerical. Can anyone help me come up with a formula that will count the text and the numerical entries for each day? I tried to use a nested if statement but it exceeded the number of nestings available. The range of cells for the first group is B6:F16.

As a side question, will count work for a range of data or only one column or row at a time?
