Vba Hyperlink To Local Worksheet

Mar 7, 2007

I would like to, using VBA, assign a hyperlink to an excel cell that links to another worksheet within the same workbook. I've tried the forums, and combined with a previous post and MS Excel Help File, I've come up with the following attempt:

With Worksheets("Test Destination")
.Hyperlinks.Add Anchor:=.Cells(counter + 4, 5), Address:=strHyper2, _
TextToDisplay:=(#1/1/2007# + counter)

End With

strHyper2 is previously defined: strHyper2 = "[WeatherTester.xls]1!A1"

My spreadsheet file is "WeatherTester.xls", my worksheet is "1", and "A1" is the desired link location for the cursor. Counter is an integer. I get the error "Invalid procedure call or argument". I also tried to enter a hyperlink directly through the formula property, but Excel didn't like the single quotations I had to use within the HYPERLINK function. The hyperlink formula works in the following form: =HYPERLINK("[WeatherTester.xls]1!A1","1 Jan")

Hyperlink To The CD Drive

Nov 20, 2009

I use the Hyperlink to open PDF files that are on the CD drive from my spreadsheet. I am on Windows XP and the CD drive is the D drive. In Vista the CD drive is the E drive.

When I take the spreadsheet to a Vista machine the link fails as there is no D drive.

Is there any to code the path of the Hyperlink so it will go to th default CD drive for that computer.

Updating Local Excel File Through The Internet?

Apr 14, 2014

30 people in different countries use a sophisticated VBA Excel file on their local PCs, let's call it myexcelfile.xls. This file contains no custom data, as all data is stored in myexcelfile_backup.xls.

The biggest challenge with this set up is that whenever there is a newer release or bugfix of myexcelfile.xls, I need to send it out per email to 30 people and hope they replace it with my updated version.

Note that newer versions can replace older versions without any data loss, as all data is stored in the backup file.

Idea: with tools like WGET or BITSADMIN, I was thinking of creating a batch file, that would simply download the latest version from a FTP server, and replace the older version with the newly downloaded one.

Constraints: I shouldn't be using any software that is not native to Windows 7the files can sit in different folders on these 30 computers, therefore the update mechanism would have to identify the path they are in.the update mechanism would have to close the file first before running the update. Question: What is the best way to go about this? A DOS Batch file? Or another excel file that is just the "updater", meaning, it's only purpose is to download the new file from the web and overwrite the old file?

Download And Save Picture From Url Into Local File

Jan 28, 2010

I have a program operating in excel 2007 that extracts a picture from a URL and puts it into a PPT slide. I now discover that PPT 2007 doesn't allow this.

So my intent now is to download the jpg into a local file and then import into the PPT.

This is from a couple of sites:

At the top of the code:

Option Explicit

Private Declare Function URLDownloadToFile Lib "urlmon" Alias "URLDownloadToFileA" _
(ByVal pCaller As Long, _
ByVal szURL As String, _
ByVal szFileName As String, _
ByVal dwReserved As Long, _
ByVal lpfnCB As Long) As Long

in the excel cell if a URL picture needs to be inserted it starts with the prefix "picture=" then the http address.

This did not work.

So I then copied the code from the websites into a module (changing the destination file and URL to mine of course) and called the procedure and still nothing.

Find File Path To USB Drive

Jun 12, 2009

I have a file which is kept on the C Drive. Each day, a different excel file is downloaded to a usb memory stick. The first file reads data from this file. The problem is, the drive letter keeps changing from E to F and the macro then crashes out.

The file on the memory stick always has the same name, so is there a macro to find the drive letter of this file and then use it in my existing macro?

Internal Hyperlinks In Excel File Stored On Network Drive

Oct 16, 2013

I am having trouble creating a hyperlink to a place in the current document for a file stored on a network drive. My workbook has a lot of sheets (50 or so), so I created a 'Navigation' sheet that contains hyperlinks to all the worksheets located therein, and pasted a link back to the Navigation sheet in cell A1 on every tab.

Setting up these Navigation sheets has never a problem until I started posting the file on a network drive. As soon as I did that, I noticed that the internal hyperlinks on all sheets in the workbook would stop working after I closed the file in Excel. Note that this network drive is not set as a drive letter on my computer, and is only accessible by entering the server ip address in Windows Explorer.

An example address the hyper is trying (and failing) to open is: "file:///\ IP ADDRESS sub-folders activefile.xlsm"

I've tried a few options, using the HYPERLINK formula, using the HYPERLINK feature in the Insert ribbon, etc, but all to no avail.

Show Full File Path Ignoring Drive Letter

May 2, 2014

I am trying to allow users to select a file, and then the file name/ the file path / and date are added.

Right now, all those functions work in the following code, but the file path shows up as a letter drive. As there could be upwards of 50 people using this file and the mapped drive could be different, i wanted the full path to be displayed.

Private Sub File_1_overwrite_Click()

Dim filename As Variant
Dim filename1 As Variant

filename = Application.GetOpenFilename(, , "Select Programme")
filename1 = filename
filename1 = Mid(filename, InStrRev(filename, "") + 1)
File_1_link = filename
file_1_name = filename1
File_1_date = Format(Date, "MM/DD/YY")

Excel 2010 :: Saving File To Network Drive - Amend Date

Jan 29, 2014

I am currently creating a simple macro to save out files to a specific folder on one of our network drives. Since we will be doing this often I would like to amend the date the the file name saved for sorting/organizational purposes.

Unfortunately I have been running into a few issues, this is what I have tried so far but keep getting a SaveAs error:

ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:="vosinsharedClient Implementation TeamDC Tools" &
"Copy DC Conversion WB_2014 " & Format(Date, "yyyymmdd") & ".xlsx", FileFormat:=xlNormal

I have also tried:

ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:="vosinsharedClient Implementation Team
DC ToolsCopy DC Conversion WB.2014_" & _
Format(Now(), "YYYYMMDDhhmmss") & ".xlsx", FileFormat:=56

But still no avail. I believe it may have something to do with the file format but I am not sure. I am running Excel 2010.

Table Names Revert To Cell Names When File Is Reopened

Jan 4, 2013

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]],"
