Excel 2002 :: Files Corrupted - No Cells Just A Grey Space Where Cells Should Be?
Mar 9, 2012
I am using Excel 2002 and have had a couple of files that seem to have become corrupted recently. When I try to open the files there is nothing there, no cells just a grey space where the cells should be. When I try to close Excel it asks me if I want to save changes when no changes have been made.
I had not made any changes to the sheets prior to this happening so am struggling to work out what is going on.
I am looking for a way to highlight groups of identical number cells in alternating grey and white. My goal is to make it clear when there is a repeating set of numbers. Below is an example of what a completed state of this would look like that I created manually. The real form I will be using this code on will have long number which is why I am looking for this added clarification. I am using excel 2010.
I need to find a way to do conditional formatting and disabling of a cell based on a value from another cell. For instance if A1=X,Y, or Z, then B1 will get grayed out and cell entry will be disabled. This is so that when skimming over the sheet, you can tell what cells in row B you need to put info in still, and if it's grayed you'll know you don't have to put anything there (and it won't let you).
Essentially, I'm creating a spreadsheet which contains a list of staff in rows, and the months of the year as columns. It is to record certain company checks which must be done (e.g. driving licence check). When a check is complete, the date it was done is entered under the corresponding month. Certain checks (e.g. driving license) only need to be done every 6 months. What I'm trying to do is find a formula/vba to look at each row, determine where (which month) the date was entered in, and grey out the 5 months in front, meaning the next check is required in 6 months time.
Ideally, the frequency of this check is dynamic, and can reference a cell (e.g. might change to every 3 months etc).
I have information in A1. I want A1 to look at B2:B5 and D2:D5 (Under conditional formatting) and if there is one or more "X" in those cells to color A1 Grey (Fill). I keep trying to put a formula under conditional formatting, but it is only working for the first cell (B2) and not the rest.
I have excel 2002 XP Professional, and the problem I am having is that Excel keeps saying I am using 65536 cells but I am only using 1406, I have tried pressing clear contents on them and delete, but this only makes it lag for 15 minutes and still says the same.
One of my excel files has refused to open and i think it is corrupted. The error message is; Excel cannot open because the file format or extension is not valid .Verify that the file has not been corrupted and that the file extension matches the format of the file.
How do i repair and recover all the data in the excel file.
I have built a darts scoreboard on Excel 2007, to track scores but also record statistics such as 3 dart average and -checkout success. As I don't know how to write macro's I've created it using formulae only - it's not fancy but does the job!
I have a number of .WAV files that call out the main scores - 60, 100, 140 and 180 and I'd like the scoreboard to play the relevant file when someone scores that amount. I've trawled through lots of forums but have been able to find one that does exactly what I need it to, and I don't know how to adjust the ones I've found.
This is how the scoreboard works:
There are 25 different sheets, one for each leg of the match that could be played. The sheets are named Leg1, Leg2, Leg3 etc.On each sheet, Player 1's scores are entered in cells J15 to J47, and Player 2's scores are entered into cells O15 to O47Once Player 1 or Player 2 wins the leg, I move on to the next sheet to play the next leg. All the scores entered remain in each sheet until the match has ended
This is what I need the macro to do:
When a score of anything other than 60, 100, 140 or 180 is entered, do nothingWhen a score of 60, 100, 140 or 180 is entered, play the relevant .WAV fileIf, for example, Player 1 scores 60 the '60' .WAV file plays. 60 will be left in J15, then Player 2 may score 100, which will be entered into O15 and should trigger the '100' .WAV file.Note that either Player 1 or Player 2 can start the leg, so the order scores are entered between column J and column O can differ.
I have to compare data in first sheet of two excel files and have to create a log file to display the logs of comparisons.
First workbook is placed in folder C:/Input/ with name as Input.xlsx and second workbook is placed in folder C:/Output/ with name as Output.xlsx.
I have to compare below cells between input.xlsx and output.xlsx.
Cell "B1" in input.xlsx , has to match with Cell "C4" in output.xlsxCell "B2" in input.xlsx , has to match with Cell "C5" in output.xlsx. Cell "B3" in input.xlsx , has to match with Cell "C6" in output.xlsxCell "B4" in input.xlsx , has to match with Cell "C7" in output.xlsx. Cell "B5" in input.xlsx , has to match with Cell "C10" in output.xlsxCell "B6" in input.xlsx , has to match with Cell "C9" in output.xlsx.
After Comparing, I would like to log all the comparision in a log.csv, if cell "B1" in input file is matching "C4" in output file , say matching and color it green. If not matching, provide mismatch values from both cells and color it in red.
How we can compare 100's of excel files placed in Input and output folder and create one log file as stated above.
Trying to figure out a VB Script but don't know where to start.
I have a sheet for each month. lets take September 2013
A Column with 200 Servers (A1:A200) on the Intranet listed as server-1/, Server-2/ Server-3 ... Server-200/ Each Server lists a location of a file for each day (31 columns per row)
I am trying to check for the existence of the files on each server (The Cells contain the URL and File Name in Range B2:AF201) starting with server-1 check the URL in B2 if it exists, go to C2, Continue with that row until the file check is False (The Page will show a 404 error) if not found delete cell url and continue. do this for all 200 rows
I am trying to send emails using a table in Xl2002 via outlook2002.
The code below is from Walkenbach's VBA Bible for Excel 2003 and I am getting "Uesr-type not defined" error with the 1st Dim statement.
Do I need a different statement such as set OutObj = blahblah or similar?? I have searche dthe net hi & lo for a solution to this problem & I do have JW's excel VBA bible.
Sub SendEmail() 'Uses early binding 'Requires a reference to the Outlook Object Library Dim OutlookApp As Outlook.Application Dim MItem As Outlook.MailItem Dim cell As Range Dim Subj As String Dim EmailAddr As String Dim Recipient As String Dim Bonus As String Dim Msg As String
I just have a grid with a bunch of numbers listed and they all have one extra space at the end of the number. I have another tab with the same numbers but they do not have that extra space. I am using a vlookup formula and it is not recognizing the numbers because of the extra space. Is there some way to get rid of the extra space with a formula instead of going through job by job?
I recently got this task by my work employer to transfer information from several non-organized Excel-documents into one, complete and organized one.
The thing I have to organize right now is a column with thousands of zipcodes and zones in one single cell, only separated by spaces, like this:
Zipcode Zone 115 54 Gothenburg 443 67 Skane
What I want to do is instead of having to go through 24h of braindead control/paste is to use some easy and fast function or script that could pull out the last piece of string of information in every cell in that column into its own separate cell.
Although I am using Open Office Calc/Gnumeric on Ubuntu Dapper, if a script is necessary and only work with Excel on Windows/Mac, that is no big problem for me to solve. So please, any suggestion is welcome.
I will attatch two examples for you to look at, to get the whole picture.
I need to delete a leading space from multiple cells, 200 or more. The leading space is in front of text that is often more than one word so I can't just copy into Word and do a find and replace on the spaces.
I looked in many places and found out about the Trim function but when I tried it, it didn't work for me. I created a column next to the column that I want to remove the leading spaces from.
Then I put =TRIM(B2) in the first cell, =TRIM (B3) in the next one, etc. But all it did was put the exact same thing as before (with the leading space still in it) in that column?
I have many sheets in my workbook with many filled or unfilled cells... I want that any cell in my whole workbook should be filled with " " ie a space if it is currently blank (ie don't touch the cells which have some data) and as there are many cells in a sheet .. I don't want to fill them with spaces as the file size will increase... I just want to do this for cells A-1 to AB-200.
What is the way of doing this with a formula or programming ie without macros... (or is macro the only way?) What if I just want to do this to a sheet and not to the whole workbook.
I am trying to split a string into separate cells. I have managed to generate the formula for the description and first dlr value in the string but I am have trouble figuring out how to build functions for the rest of the string.
I need a macro in a workbook to look at all the files in the same folder that have "*att*.xls" in the name and determine and copy from the range A15:W515 only the rows that have data in at least columns A, C and D. Each file will vary as to how many rows there will be and there are more than the files with "*att*.xls" in the folder. The data will be on the only worksheet in each file and the worksheet is named "G2WAttendee_xls" the data from all the files need to be copied to the file called "Consolidated webinar reports.xls" (I am using Excel 2003) and to a sheet called "Attendance Data" and added to the end of the last paste.
At the start of the macro the current file "Consolidated webinar report.xls" should be saved to a sub folder of the current directory and have the date saved added to the name. The sub folder is called "Completed reports". The data in the original file on worksheet "Attendance Data" should be deleted.
At the end of the process all the files that have had data copied from them should be moved to the sub folder "Attendance reports consolidated" (This could be done as each file is closed if that is easier).
I have headings in row 1 of the "Attendance Data" worksheet that match the headings in the various files in the folder (which will always be in row 14 of the individual "*att*.xls" files).
The folder with all the files and the "Consolidated webinar report.xls" file is at path "Z:P and S MEvaluationsWebinar series 2012-13TB".
I am using excel 2002 and I have found that when the workbook is shared and getting 2 or more users to open the workbook around the same time brings up a read only type prompt box for the 2nd ( and 3rd) user when the book hasn't fully opened for the 1st user/is still fully opening. Is this a limitation within excel or is there a way around this for example via vb code.
I know the more data a workbook has can cause it open a lot slower but is this the same for shared mode.
The formula is working well. The problem is I get the result for the first column of error even if the error is in more than one column. I want the result should display all the errors with the column number 1, 2, 3 (or with column name A, B, C etc). The total number of error is not required. The exact columns which have the error should be displayed. For example if the error exists in 3, 4 and 5 columns, I should get the result as "345Error" or "CDEError".I use excel 2002.
I've got Excel 2002. I am devising a sheet for checking work (sheet A) which feeds onto a separate sheet (sheet B). If I wanted to delete info from sheet A can I retain the info on sheet B? I want sheet A to be used repeatedly for each case but the info for every case to be recorded row by row on sheet B.
