Excel 2003 :: Identify All Sheets Related To One Sheet
Oct 13, 2011
I have been given an excel model to review;the workbook has 53 sheets. I would like to know if there is a way to create a flowchart/matrix with the relation of all the sheets. I would like at least to get a list of all the sheets related to each sheet. All what I was able to do is to get all the sheet names in one sheet. (I am using Excel 2003).
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.
What I am trying to do here is to compare 2 lists in 2 different files, and when there is a match, then copy and paste the related cells of the matching name. Sorry if this sounds messy, perhaps the sample file I have attached can explain better.
Every month I get a new file in the format of “Data Source” sheet where the list of banks in column A and the figures in column M, AA and AB might change from month to month. For the sake of convenience, I put the source data as a different sheet instead of different file here.
I have an existing report template in the format of “Final report” sheet where basically I copy and paste the relevant cells according to the name of the banks.
I don’t think I can use Vlookup because the cells that I want to extract are not right beside the search criteria. If I’m wrong please correct me.
Anyway, assuming a macro is needed for this, I am wondering if I can create a macro, where it can search the list of banks in column A in “Data Source” sheet based on the list in column A in “Final Report” sheet, then copy the correct cells from column M, AA and AB and then paste them into the correct cells in columns B, E and H in “Final Report” worksheet?
Note that not all the banks in the “Final Report” sheet are in the “Data Source”, so for this example, row 4 for ABN Bank should remain blank after the search because it is not listed in the “Data Source”. The Data Source List might also change over time.
There is also this problem of the bank names from the “Data Source” sheet not being exactly the same as the existing list in “Final Report”. For example in this file, ANZ Bank in the other sheet have all the extra stuff behind, but we know it is the same bank.
So I have a bunch of not so simple excel sheets in a Excel file. I'm trying to automate the testing of these (right now, I'm doing the testing manually).
To simplify, let's say there are two sheets - both of them have a cell called "Total" at the end, which is nothing much a total of some column. My test is to check if these two totals are the same. We don't know the number of rows before hand (it is coming from a database). The way I'm doing right now, is searching for the cell containing the text "Total" getting it's row and column, and adding 1 to the column, to get the cell that actually has the total value. Do this for both the sheets, and I have both values, and it's easy to compare now.
If someone changes the text from "Total" to "Totals" then this will fail.
1. Is there a better way to do this? Say, setting a unique parameter or something on the cell that actually has the total value, and using that unique parameter to search the cell?
2. Or is there a totally different (better) approach to this type of testing?
I have a couple of issues and if its okay will post two threads to make it easier to follow due to my basic skills in Excel.
I have a workbook with 5 sheets. The first sheet is a stat sheet which picks up data from four other spreadsheets. I want to work out the average working days taken to complete a case but this data is across multiple sheets.
So for example Column E in each sheet tells you what type of case it is i.e. investigation. Then column T tells you number of workings day it took to complete the case. To work this out I have used the following formula:
I know its very basic but its the only way I know how to work out an average in Excel 2003. I need to add a second criteria where on every sheet it looks in column G for date the case was allocated. As I'm only looking to report in the current report year I want it to look for cases where the value in column G is =>01/04/14 but =<31/03/14.
So I am trying to pull data from multiple sheets. I've gone through the thread, but haven't found an answer yet (or didn't work hard enough). On Sheet1, yellow highlighted column, I am trying to look up the I.D. Code for 36 month residuals. As you can see, I have to use multiple conditions on different worksheets.
I have to use most of Sheet1 columns to find the answer. I just can't figure the formula out.
I have two Sheets, first is Service Data, the second is Log Sheet. In the Service Data sheet I have a column of serial numbers in column A. I also have a column of serial numbers in the Log Sheet, column A.
I'm looking for a conditional format whereas I enter numbers into column A on the Log sheet it will auto highlight the cell if I duplicate a serial number from row A in the Service Data sheet. I would like it to highlight the Duplicated number on the Log sheet. I know new versions of excel make it easier to do this but unfortunately I have Excel 2003.
I have an annual leave (vacation) work book with a summary page work sheet and separate work sheets for each month i.e. Jan, Feb, Mar.....to......Dec. In order to protect the formulas I have protected them by allowing only access to the input cells on each work sheet and the protect each work sheet.
When someone either joins or leaves the team I have to manually unprotect each sheet and protect again when I have completed the amendments to each of the 13 tabs.
macro code I would need to unprotect all the works sheets in one go (as I use the same password for all the sheets) and reset the passwords (protect) the sheets with more macro code.
I will be running the two macros from my own personal.xls file and ideally they would be fully automatic i.e. I would not need to input the passwords in to unlock or lock the work sheets as the password would be written in the code already
We have a huge excel-sheet, containing disputes with customers. Everytime there is a dispute, the customers data will be transferred into the sheet. The sheet is organized like this:
DATE / NAME / ID / COMMENT / FREQUENCY (how often one customer appears in the list) /ID2 (ID combination of the date + ID) /Weekday
And here comes the task:
Find all customers who appear 10 work-days(Mo-Fr) in a row. So if a customer appears Mo-Fr and keeps on being in the list the next Monday etc. it still counts as "in a row". Same with official holidays. If a customer appears at a certain date he is "booked" and it doesnt matter if a appears a second time on that specific date.
Attached to this post you find an example in which you can see the structure of my excel sheet!
Note: I had to use a german version of excel when I made this little example - thats why the formula in the collum "Frequency" says "Zahlenwenn" its the german version of COUNTIF
I am using Win XP Pro, Excel 2003. In the workbook, I have a invoice spread sheet (lets call it sheet1) to create invoices. Once the invoice is completed, I save it with this macro which saves it to the contents of E3 and E7 for the file name:'
Sub SaveMeExtraQUOTE() Application.DisplayAlerts = False ' Dialog's Title strTitle = ""My Tite"" If MsgBox("WARNING !! STOP! Enter ALL your quotes information to be saved BEFORE saving the file!!!
This is working just fine BUT it keeps saving it to a template file where the master template is kept. Why will it NOT save it to the QUOTES folder when I am using this:
Filename:="C:EXCELATX Concrete DesignQUOTES"
I am also trying to have a space between the contents of cell E3 and E7 when the file name is saved. Now it just puts them together.
My spreadsheet has multiple lines of data for multiple items (have a specific item #) and I need to be able to enter an item # on a different sheet so that the requested information can be pulled from the data source. The items have information on multiple rows. I need to have all of the rows pulled into my output file when I specify the specific item. #.
I have attached a spreadsheet showing the type of data is contained and what my desired output would look like.
Sheet1 contain daily input table which as follows: Name salaryBonusXX10002XY9001YY11002ZY15003ZZ12502AA10502AZ9501
Sheet2 have table where all the information is saved. So we can say this is database of sheet1. Which store every day information of sheet 1.
SALARY DATABASEMonth Name Salary Bonus
I want that when I finished writing on the sheet 1(which i do manually) then with macro it go the sheet 2 and find first empty cell in the name column and past the all the data of sheet1 table. Months I will put manually. I am working on MS2003.
I wanted to know if it was possible for me to be able to copy a whole row into a different sheet based on a column value. For example, if B6 = CLOSE, the whole row would be coppied to the sheet name CLOSE. If B6 = OCCUPIED it would be copied to sheet name OCCUPIED. I also need if W7 = to a date thats passed today it would be added to the sheet name EXP PRD. An off topic question, i have this code for column "W":
It works just fine, but I also have "N/A" / "INDEF" in the blocks as well so it's not giving me the correct results. I'm using Excel 2003.
(EXCEL 2003)I have 6 worksheets for 6 separate ad reps that will be populated with customer info. To make my life simple I just want column A from each of the 6 worksheets to show up on a master sheet in column A. But what also needs to happen is if we add and delete customers that also needs to happen on the master. I understand the "=" and then pointing to a cell in another sheet and hitting enter. I got that to work but I just have soooo many cells to work with that would just be way too time consuming.
I have sheet containing a schedule of data. It is a record of changes on a project, each change is sequentially numbered and contains a row of data (date of change, whether approved, cost of change etc). Each change is given a cost centre reference (1 of 10 cost centres are being used) depending on the type of change being made.
I need to keep that record of the overall schedule of changes but I also want to extract each of the cost centre categories into a sub table on the sheet to give a schedule of changes against each category.
I have almost achieved what I want but one method leaves blanks in the sub table which I want to avoid and the other method I used to remove the blank lines but needs the first method sheet calculated before it then goes to work and seems rather cumbersome and I suspect there is a much easier method. (I also want it to be compatible with excel 2003 so it can be used across several platforms.)
Using excel 2003, Workbook has several sheets, all sheets are protected workbook is not. I have my cells containing formulas locked, I have unlocked the other cells that require input of various data. When the user goes to type in a "unlocked" cell, (to over write the now obsolete data) it will not allow the user to delete the data, the curser remains a cross and the formula bar or the cell itself will now allow any changes.
I have double checked that the cells are unlocked. I can enter data after the last entry in the unlocked row and or column, but I want to be able to "cut or delete the data that is no longer need and begin entering data from the beginning cell of choice. I want to copy this "old" data to an archive sheet, but it will now allow me to select it.
Example: I have 6 columns starting, (a to f) the formulas are in columns e and f and start at row 4 These columns are locked and hidden. Columns a,b,c and d are unlocked for user input. All data is started from A5 which I want it to start from each time the old data is deleted and new data entered. If I place my curser on any of the cells in the e and f rows, the cursor remains a cross which is what I expect it to do, but columns a to d are doing the same thing, they are acting as if they are locked OR atleast those cells in the a to d areas which have existing data, as I can enter below.
I have an excel file (2003 version) with one sheet called sheet1.
On sheet1 I have multiple text boxes, however each text box has the same text box number "Text Box 1244" (this number appears in the top left-hand side in excel when I click the textbox).
I was wondering if it's possible to rename the text boxes based on their location on the sheet.
Eg. If i had a sheet with 5 rows of text boxes and 3 columns of text boxes (15 text boxes in total).
The top left-hand box gets renamed to "Text Box 1", then the text box below that gets renamed to "Text Box 2" and so on to the bottom of the sheet to "Text Box 5". Then the vba script would move to the text box that was to the right of the first text box (1st row again but 2nd column), and rename all the text boxes in that column ("Text Box 6" onward).
I used to use Excel many many years ago for all my basic business databases and pivot table reports (so was at a basic competency level) and want to use it again but it has been quite a while and I can't remember how to do the following.....
I want to build a database of sales and purchase info in say 'sheet 1' - let's say 30 different headed columns and then many lines of different information under each column.
In 'sheet 2' I want to create an invoice template of my own design (I can do easily) for printing.
This template will need to extract say 10 bits of information from a particular row and then put them in a certain place on this sheet.
How can I type in one piece of information in a cell on sheet 2 (say the invoice or line number of the database) and that will then trigger all the other needed information from that particular line in sheet one onto this template?
I know it can be done but for life of me can not remember the formulas to use for these other cells in sheet 2 based on the info put in that one 'trigger' cell
I have saved this on a 2010 workbook as I am at home but this will be used on a 2003 workbook.
I have several projects on one spreadsheet which multiple users will be working and I am trying to create a summary sheet of the work carried out.
Each user is expected to carry out a task on each row of the data held in each worksheet (research, call, update etc) and each task (Option 1-5) is assigned a value. Each user is expected to meet a certain level of points per day to calculate productivity.
I am looking for a sumproduct along the lines of the summary sheet attached but mine just takes one sheet into consideration and I need one for all sheets.
I'm working on a dynamic payroll spreadsheet that will automatically calculate the overtime worked in a week. Right now, I'm running into a snag. My issue is with the formula in Column R. Right now, as shown below, it is doing the calculation based on regular hours minus 40 to determine the OT time. The snag is very messy and it lay in this: while the row by row calculations for total overtime worked for the week is correct, the sum at the bottom is very much off. I need an accurate method to sum the hours of overtime for the given column.
Here are the guidelines for the pay periods and overtime:
1. The pay periods for the month go from the 1st to the 15th and the 16th to EOM (End of Month). This means that the pay period could end on any given day of the week. More on this in a moment.
2. A work week is defined as Sunday to Saturday.
3. Overtime is calculated based on the rule of anything over 40 hours in a given work week.
4. Holiday hours worked do not count towards the 40 hour mark in granting overtime since Holiday pay is automatically overtime.
If it were just a matter of a bi-weekly (every 2 weeks) pay period, I would simply state =IF(weekday(DATE)=7,Hours_Worked - 40,0), and tag a SUM(range) at the bottom. Unfortunately, with it being a semi-monthly (twice a month), the end of the pay period could be a Wednesday, so a reference to day of the week won't work unless the formula can dynamically determine which set of data to evaluate.
I'm completely willing to toss out the current method of determining overtime. This is the calculations sheet that references a cleanly formatted and designed time card on a tab called "Time Card", so this isn't the full workbook. In fact, once the whole thing is done, this calculation sheet will be hidden.
Columns M and N (which are formula referenced in Column P) are basic End - Start calculations and were hidden to simplify the display as well as the number of formulas displayed.
Column L (formula referenced) is a Yes/No display for if the date in question is holiday pay.
I am looking for a way to search using macros. Currently i can search/find by cell, but i need to find with mulitple cells. An example is, sheet 1 "A2" and "B3" date needs to be compared to sheet 2 to see if the data is already in sheet 2. Column A is first name and Column B is last name. Need to know if that full name (first and last) is already in second sheet. I can already search for just the first name or just the last name but now the two together.
