I'm trying to simplify a spreadsheet i've been given by defining names for certain values. I'm using Excel 2013. Is there any way to have all of the newly defined names I've created for cells automatically be inserted into all of the formulas that exist in the spreadsheet?
Old formula in one sheet of a workbook looks up a cell in another sheet with the value of ='sheet1!A1
I've given the value of cell A1 in Sheet1 a name of dgwd.
How do I get every formula in the workbook that references 'sheet1!A1 to change the value within that formula to dgwd?
I am trying to write a macro (preferrably within exsting file) that will
A: change file name to specific cell input ( date, got that working) B: change directory on server to place renamed file in a "Past Production Folder" (Keeps saving on my hard drive) C: Open a different folder to retrieve a blank copy D: Change back to main directory to save blank copy E: Make workbook shared
Gotta get this working quick, program needs to replace for new week production.
I have a worksheet with many tables that I use in formulas.
I like tables for a couple reasons, one being the ability to insert/delete rows without affecting the rest of that worksheet row.
Also, automatic copy of formulas/formatting is great.
But, what I really like about tables is the ability to use the naming conventions in formulas.
Problem is when I save this worksheet, after I close it and open it back up, all table references in my formulas have been converted to cell references.
=IF((SUMIF('Quote 1'!$M$28:$M$43,">"&'Quote 1'!$J$57:$J$60)*'Quote 1'!$G$57:$G$60)+(COUNTIF('Quote 1'!$M$28:$M$43,""&'Quote 1'!$J$57:$J$60)*'Quote 1'!$G$57:$G$60)+(COUNTIF('Quote 1'!$M$28:$M$43,""&tblOSSRV[Min Order Cost])*tblOSSRV[Cost / Part])+(COUNTIF(tblFam[[#Data],[Qty by Factor2]],""&tblOSSRV[Min Parts Per Line])*tblOSSRV[Cost / Part])+(COUNTIF(tblFam[[#Data],[Qty by Factor2]],"
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 need to make this macro read FOLDER names instead of FILE names. When I posted this question yesterday to get this macro, I wasn't told that each file in its own folder. I need the folder names now. _____________________________________
Sub test() With Application.FileSearch .NewSearch .LookIn = "C:Ford" .SearchSubFolders = False .Filename = "*.*" .FileType = msoFileTypeAllFiles If .Execute() > 0 Then For i = 1 To .FoundFiles.Count Cells(i, 1) = .FoundFiles(i) Next i Else Cells(i, 1) = "No files Found" End If End With End Sub
Column A contains one numeric value in each row. Column B lists one person's name in each row.
Column E contains a distinct list of the names found in column B (no repeats), with one name in each row. Each row of column F contains one alpha ID that belongs to the adjacent name in column E.
I need to replace each name in column B with its respective alpha ID from column F, effectively pairing each numeric value in column A with an alpha ID from column F.
Have I stated my goal clearly enough? I could Find/Replace a few hundred times, but I thought there might be a better way using an Excel formula. I'm a beginner-intermediate user, and I clearly don't know enough about Excel to even ask about specific functions for this task.
I have excel vba code to open .xls files on my server. Files to open are chosen by the user via a UserForm within my app, it shows them all their files in their directory on my server. How can I open their files (.xls) that they select but DISABLE the VBA from being able to run/execute, if they have any attched to the file?
I now have all code in place to open the file no problem, I just need to know how to disable the VBA part from being "turned on" when the file opens.
The code below looks at file names in column A and then goes to a folder and opens and copies the data in range c2 -lastrow from each file and pastes the data into sheet2.
how I could add to the code so that it also inserts the file name in column c?
It would make it easier to track the data in column B.
VB: Sub CopyFromFile() Dim fPath As String Dim lRow As Long
I have attached a sample workbook. The list of file name is in sheet 1. An example of the output is in sheet 2. The data in column A is dummy data generally spans 100's of rows not just 10 as in the example.
The purpose of the code is to be able to put a list of file names in column a in sheet 1 and extract data from those files in a folder. The data extraction works fine. The reson for adding the file names is so that I know what file the data came from.
I have a column of 3 letter codes (Righthand side) all differant ie BHP, CBA, NAB, WBC etc. (2000 of them) On the left I have the formula ie =MisData!VOLUME!BHP.ASX
Each formula should have the relevant code within it such as the BHP in the formula on the 2nd row should be CBA, the third formula should have NAB in it. right down the whole 2000 codes without doing it one by one. Now using the find & replace tool to do it one ny one
How to disable a macro when the workbook opened is a copy ** the original, the only difference between the 2 files would be the date created, could it possible to use some VBA to check for this "Date Created", and if the date is different from the original, then the copy will not able to run the macro or some sheets will be hidden in the copied file?
I want to hide all toolbars and disable the red X upon opening of the spreadsheet, and to restore the main toolbars upon closing. That worked perfectly. (when I used the black code -see below) I added in the red code as i wanted to disable the red X as well to ensure that users will always close the EXCEL worksheet via a Macro button.
The Macro will save the spreadsheet and close the worksheet and the Private sub should restore the toolbars.
Is there a way to remove the option to open a file as read only when the file is already open by another user? Ideally when a user tries to open a file that is already in use they would get a message to that effect and the only option at that point would be for them to select "notify" when file is available.
I've just inherited a load of Excel files I need to continue using, but my predecessor has done something that disables the middle-click scroll ability.
I can still scroll up and down by turning the wheel, but I want to be able to click it and scroll in all directions at speed - I didn't realise how much I used this until I couldn't. Can't see anything in the VBA sheet properties, and they are all .xlsx files. Nothing leaps out of the settings either. If I create a new file or a file of mine within the same session, they work fine.
I need to update some fields in my excel sheet from a .txt file (comma or space separated), based on matching values of a key field in both files. I do not want to import the file into excel and do a vlookup. I am thinking of a macro that prompts the user for the file location ( txt file) and then scans the txt file and updates the fields. how to go about doing this or have any code I can use?
