I have an excel spreadsheet that I password encrypted in Excel 2003.
The computer that it was stored on has died however the hard drive was still good and has been added as a second drive in my current computer with no signs of data corruption.
I took ownership of all the files on the old drive and gave explicit rights on my current computer to open that file. However when I open the file with in excel. I get the error: You don't have permission to open this file. Contact the file owner or an administrator to obtain permission.
When I open from windows explorer. I get the error: Excel cannot access 'Passwords.xls' The document may be read-only or encrypted.
And: 'Password.xls' cannot be accessed. The file may be corrupted, located on a server that is not responding, or read-only.
The new computer has Excel 2010 instead of 2003. Additionally, I know the password to the encrypted file but it wont let me even get to a place where I need to put in a password. I cannot move or copy this file to another location either.
How do I create a hyperlink in an Excel 2003 file that will open a PDF file with Reader?
I have an Excel file of hundreds of Customer names and invoice numbers. I have a directory of PDF files. The name of each PDF file is the customer name, a space, and the invoice number. I should be able to have a column in the Excel file that contains a formula that creates a hyperlink to open the corresponding PDF file.
I used the HYPERLINK function and built the path and file by concatenating information. When I click the hyperlink, I keep getting an Excel error: Cannot open the specified file.
Do you think this problem is something of my own doing or some "undocumented feature" in Excel?
I have some password protected excel worksheets that required editing as they are from earlier versions, an earlier time and all need to be updated. This would be fine if it was myself who actually made the worksheets, but the person who did retired a couple of years ago and has dropped off the map (no contact details etc).
I know how to remove passwords, when I was the one who set them. The big problem here is, they are all macro enabled and for some reason the free down load password removal applications do not unlock worksheets that are macro enabled.
When I opened up the excel file, it prompted me to plugin password. There is no read-only option too. how can i open it up, i tried download some password protector software to crack it, it is only limited demo which mean can open that file partially not full indeed
Is it possible for Excel file to be open with 2 password? Like, if password is equal to "Password1" the file can be edited but if password is equal to "Password2" the file will be open as read only, if so, VBA code.
I'm using 2003 (I know!) version & I can't open excel files directly by clicking on them. I get an "error in sending command" message. I can circumvent problem by opening Excel & then opening the relevant file, but this sometimes causes me problems.
Every day I create many Excel reports that I manually save as PDFs for distribution to my stakeholders. I'd like to automate this process using a macro. I've seen the following code online and have attempted to use it, but receive an error in the Dim MyPDF line of code indicating that the user-defined type is not defined.
I'm using Excel 2003 and Acrobat Distiller 8. I have no problem creating PDFs manually
Code: Sub Create_PDF() Dim tempPDFFileName As String Dim tempPSFileName As String Dim tempPDFRawFileName As String
I need to open an excel file based on a date mentioned in the file name, but minus 1 day. The file name is composed with Statistics_date_time.xls
Once I need to open the file (only in the mornings), it has to be the one from the previous day to see the yesterdays performance. How can I create a macro that will look at the date in the file and take the one from yesterday?
This will be a part of a macro I'm making. The rest of the macro will just format the file and combine a few ones from different departments.
I have a question regarding the properties of an Excel file (.xls 2003). I can change them all (as indicated on Microsoft support website) expect the name of the last person who recorded the document (File ==> Properties==>Stat.)
I have a excel 2003 template that loads a csv file and create a graph.What I am trying to do is remove the Workbook_open macro after it has been run so when they save the file it will not save the macro in the new file.
I have some daily text files in a folder (so about 30 of them each month), which in the end of month, I need to open them up in excel, format them so that I can use the information for my analysis.
I would like to create a macro, to quickly open them all up at once and save them each individually in .xls or .xlsm format.
I am new to VBA and after some research online, I was able to have the files open with the following code. but now I don't know how to proceed further to save them one by one with the same name but in .xls or .xlsm format.
Sub Opentxtfiles() Dim MyFolder As String Dim myfile As String
Is there a way to disable the Convert button on the File menu and also to limit the Save As file types? I have a workbook that I maintain in Office 2003 that gets filled out by customers and returned. When a user with a newer version of Excel converts the file, it doesn't function properly when I go open it. I believe the conversion issue has to do with Active X Controls, but I'm using them to do some things that won't work with Forms Controls, so replacing them would be a last resort. Also, upgrading Office isn't an option at this point.
What i am trying to do is in 1 workbook (labled as Book1 literally), it needs to copy the sheets out of every .xls file there is in a single directory, we'll call C:MyFolderMySubFolder. There can be anywhere between 1 and 366 files in this particular folder and I need all the sheets in each file labled 'CC' copy that entire sheet, paste that sheet to Book1, go back to that file it was copied from, close it (saving changes is ok), then move on to the next file.. and the next file... and so forth
While pasting into book1, I need each WS copied from each file to paste to a new worksheet in book1 rather than combining them into 1 or overwriting, and lable each of those sheets the file name of which the sheet came from...
The names are in sequence. All files in the folder will be labled as a date such as "9-6-12" so the sheet name in book1 would be named 9-6-12. (so there may result in 366 new worksheets to book1)
When opening a new Excel file, it is asking me for a password to an old excel file that was password protected, which I have deleted from my computer. It is still asking for this password every time I open a new or existing file. When I hit cancel it lets me open the file.
