I have two spreadsheets that are linked in Excel 2007. They both hold very different information about the same projects, so each row shares some information. However, they are both very large and I do not want to combine them in case the whole spreadsheet becomes unusable. I'm not allowed to use a database
When I save Spreadsheet 1 in a different location, so that I have a backup of the precious data, the link in Spreadsheet 2 changes to show that new location. I want the link to stay at the old location.
Is there a way to stop the link changing when I use SaveAs, so that when I open Spreadsheet 2 it refers to the original location of Spreadsheet 1?
I've created a workbook with code to email it to a reviewer then back to the originator when reviewed (along with other editing functions etc.). The problem - The originator is working in Excel 2003, the reviewer in 2007. The macros work great until the reviewer sends it back. I have not been able to figure out which FileFormat:= ???? to use when I SaveAs prior to emailing as an attachment. My Excel 2003 doesn't recognize the .xlsm file and other formats are eliminated the vba/macro coding
I am running a text comparison between customer names in 2 systems and although I can identify where they dont match I would like a bit more information as to what the differences may be:
See below sample data - 1 system may have Mr/Ms and middle initials whereas the other simply has the name is it possible to write a formula that will look at the cell and when it does not match identify the extra characters. Or if it totally doesnt match then just state incorrect.
I have some schedules set up with multiple formulas and macros (originally setup in 2003) however when attempting to make this a 2007 file when I go to copy a sheet to create another schedule I get the message “A formula or sheet you want to move or copy contains the name “xx”, which already exists on the destination worksheet. Do you want to use this version of the name? To use the name as defined in the destination sheet, click yes. To rename the range referred to in the formula or worksheet, click no, and enter a new name in the Name Conflict dialog box.”
I would like to send a .xls file created in Excel 2007 to a user who will work with this file on a PC that runs Excel 2003. Will they be able to open and use a file created in a newer version of Excel?
I've been putting together an automated spreadsheet that has external data sources to SQL. I have been having some strange problems with it between versions of Excel. Unfortunately, the company's standard is 2003 but quite a lot of the company use 2007. I have been developing this report on 2007, the server that runs the automated version of the spreadsheet runs 2003 (and cannot be upgraded beyond 2003 as it is running Server 2000!).
The template opens fine on my 2007 machine and all development work has been run on my machine including the downloading of data. The VBA script runs something like
My company used to have Excel 2003. I had a PivotTable in a worksheet that accessed data in another, completely different worksheet. When we converted to Excel 2007, I saved many of my Excel files from .xls to .xlsm. My PivotTable that once accessed data from another .xls file is still trying to access that same .xls file. What I want, though, is for it to access the new .xlsm file.
I have a spreadsheet that collates a list of data from week order and puts them in a graph. I have a macro created that basically does the graph, it works fine in 2003 but not in office 2007. I get an error "Run Time Error '1004' Application-defined or object-defined error, then when I click the debug button it highlights "ActiveSheet.ChartObjects.Delete". I'm not sure if when its trying to create a new graph its attempting to delete the old one and isnt deleting it? The full code for the macro is below:
Sub updateStuff() Dim searchResult As Range 'Result of the find operation - to check if it has worked or not Application.ScreenUpdating = False If SheetExists("OTIF Chart") Then Application.DisplayAlerts = False Sheets("OTIF Chart").Delete Application.DisplayAlerts = True End If Sheets("OTIF's").Select Range("B4:N4").Select Selection.Copy Sheets("Graph").Select Range("B1").Select................................
I created a Macro in 2007 and it turns out I needed to develop it in 2003. Now none of my code works and I am trying to convert it. I would appreciate any assistance determining what needs to be corrected and how to correct it. Here iare two samples that is repeated throughout my code.
'Delete anything currently in spreadsheet Application.CutCopyMode = False Range("A2:N1048576").ClearContents Range("A2").Select ActiveWorkbook.Save
For a particular requirement I want to utilise the colours. ANd therefore I need to know, how many colours are present in the Colour Palette in both 2003 and 2007 and which colours would be same if I make the File in 2007?
Please find attached a daily copy of a spreadsheet that is used to monitor train running times.
The columns on the left - "Serv No, Serv Start Date,Train No:, Scheduled Arrival, Scheduled Depart" are provided to us automatically and the underlying cell formatting/formula cannot be changed. This information is cut directly from a daily report sent to us the previous day. The cell formatting for the start date is custom - dd-mm-yyyy hh:mm.
The sheet is usually locked out with user access only to the left hand side to cut and paste train times in and the input columns on the right hand side. User has no requirement to adjust any details in the left had column apart from to add additional trains at the bottom is need be. I have left the loaded sheet blank and complete with all underlying cell formatting, conditional formatting and formulas intact for you to play with.
Both sheets essentially do the same thing so whatever formula changes are made to the empty sheet can be adapted for the loaded sheet.
For simplicity, I will focus on the empty sheet. What I am mucking around with is having the user input the train arrival time in the "Actual Arrival" column - (column F)
What I am looking at then making occur is the spreadsheet automatically filling the adjacent columns with the appropriate text and calculations.
To do this excel needs to compare column the number (cell input is text formatted) as a number with the arrival time in column G. It then needs to calculate if the train is Early (16 minutes or more before scheduled arrival), on time (+/- 15 minutes either side of scheduled arrival) or late (16 minutes or more after scheduled). It then needs to automatically place the letter "E", "O" or "L" in column K and the time differential in column L.
My problem is two fold.
Firstly, I cannot seem to make the spreadsheet automatically enter a letter into column K depending on the above conditions.
Secondly, I have had limited success in having the spreadsheet compare column J with column F and working out the differential. However, this only works if the time remains linear. IE only if the train runs on time or late. It gives an incorrect time differential if the train is early. I will attach this spreadsheet tomorrow as an add on to this post.
I'm struggling constantly with the Excel 2007 I use, and the Excel 2003 that another group uses.
I'm dealing with large files; 200000 to 300000 rows often.
I wish there was a setting or way to automatically force excel 2007 to create a file in 2003 format.....meaning I want 260000 rows to automatically be divided up into 4 sheets limited to 65K each. 260001 rows would be put into 5 sheets, so that I could save it as an excel 2003 file.
Is there also a way to do this from access 2007 exported to excel?(I know that's an access question and probably outside the bounds of this board).
I am trying to find a method of adding a combo box and populate it that works for Excel 2000, 2003 and 2007. The following works for Excel 2007 but did not work on a machine installed with Excel 2003.
With Sheets("Tasks").ComboBox1 .AddItem "By Task Number" .AddItem "By Date Task Assigned" .AddItem "By Date Due for Completion" .AddItem "By Status" .AddItem "By Status and Date Due for Completion" End With
Is is possible to write code that is compatible on both versions.. ie
If Application.Version > 11 Then ' excel 2007 code Else ' excel 2003 code End If I have developed a reporting spread for a client which contains automated chart generation, all done with VBA. I have read numerous threads of issues when upgrading.
What they want is the chart VBA to be upgraded so that it can be run on both versions.
I have run into a brick wall with InStr, Replace, and Len. I take the data from the active cell (formatted as text). I need to cleanup the data and do further massaging of it. In testing cleanup code, I get behavoirs and results I simply don't understand and can't figure out from hours searching forums many places.
The following simplified example commented code can be cut/pasted into a new spreadsheet module and should be self-explanatory. Example data is in the comments. Data is entered by multiple users and multiple sources. Therefore there is no control over the input quality so extraneous characters and multiple repeated periods and spaces can show up anywhere.
With the kind help of this forum, I put together a nice business tool that has a fair amount of automation via macro buttons, etc. It works great in XL 2007 but some users are having issues in 2003. I appreciate this is quite general but are there significant conflicts / differences with coding in these two different versions?
in adapting the previous code to MS Excel 2007. I have found that the "application.filesearch" object no longer exist in 2007! The code goes to a file path and extracts the text and places the data in the specified excel column.
i installed office 2007 beta version on my computer (for testing) together with the already existing office 2003. now the default program of my excel files is excel 2007 beta version (not excel 2003). can i change this behavior so that when i open an excel file the default program would be excel 2003 instead of excel 2007 and whenever i want to open a file using excel 2007 i do so by right clicking the file & choosing excel 2007 from the open with list.
