I made an excel sheet that links to other sheets on a different drive. It works while I am making it, but upon save and reopen all the hyperlinks produce this error: The address of this site is not valid. Check the address and try again.

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:
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")
The default program for opening JPG files is "Windows picture and fax viewer" which is fine with one of my colleagues. Upon declaring and clicking on a Hyperlink, to a JPG fle, the picture is opened in "Microsoft photo editor". How can one define the program in which Pictures opens via Hyperlinks will be displayed!? (WINXP & Office 2002)
I have a loads of folders with different account names on my c: drive. What I want to do is put in part of the name rather than al ofl i.e. Manchester United, would just put in Manchester I have seen the * used but was not sure how this works
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?
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: [url] [url]
At the top of the code:
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.
Case "TD" strfilename = "\TomsblackibmTomsProposals" & strfilename
I would like to send this file by email if possible instead of to his computer. The user recently went from a desktop "in the office" to a laptop "all over the place".
Dim strPath As String, strPath2 As String, CurrPath As String
Dim WB1 As Workbook Dim WB2 As Workbook
Set WB1 = ActiveWorkbook
'First thing, save my work WB1.Save
CurrPath = WB1.Path
'ASSUMING THAT C6 and O3 are BOTH in WB1 'move this line HERE: only do this once, and concatenate in the Select..Case later 'doing thsi inside the Select..Case pulls values from WB2, which might cause errors.............................
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?
I am trying to move and rename an excel template file using a macro. My code works fine when it is moving the file locally on my C: drive. However, when I try to do it on a mapped network drive I get a Path/File access error. Here is the relevant code:
I tried it both ways that are commented out - both give me the error. I have permissions to read/write in all relevant folders. What am I missing here?
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.
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.
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:
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]],"
I have a word 2010 file with some hyperlinks to some Excel files and Excel cells. All these files are within a a single folder that I shall send to another pc. I don't know how to make the hyperlink directory path the same as the word file except for the file name.
I am trying to activate a Dynamic Hyperlink in IE. Each time a user starts a new session, a single parameter in the URL changes. Is there a way to search the page, identify the preferred link, and activate it without knowing the full hyperlink address? The hyperlink is as follows: [url] The parameter after "unitchange" is what changes from session to session.
