Excel 2003 :: Autopopulate Data From 1 Database To Another?
Jul 1, 2014
I have inherited a number of databases in work (running Office 2003). It has quickly become apparant that a vast amount of work is duplicated and so i am trying to cut down the data input and therefore the possible errors.......
I have narrowed most of the work down and now have a major worksheet (is that what you call a complete Excel file) named "master database" and several over minor files....
Currently what i am trying to do is to get one of the minor files to auto populate an area of the master database. I will try to explain it below...
1. Minor database has 2 columns with data i require to auto populate the master database. (1 column (B) is called 'off', the 2nd column (C) is called 'on').
2. A number will be inputed manually into either 'B' only or 'B and C' columns, depending on the criteria of the job..
3. The criteria of the job is dictated by column (Z) where the text 'A' or 'ATL' is inputed
4. The master database i would like to add up the numbers inputed as a total from columns 'off' and 'on' and place them into seperate columns 'E' and 'G' of the master database.
5. IF column (Z) shows 'A' then only column (B) 'off' is to be calculated and put into the master database at column (E)
6. IF column (Z) shows 'ATL' then BOTH columns (B and C) 'on' AND 'off' are to be added together and column (G) populated on the master database.....
To make mattters more complex. An expiry date is shown on the master database at columns (D) and (F).
IF column (E) does not exceed 12 by the expiry date, i would like the cell (D) to turn red
IF column (G) does not exceed 10 by the expiry date, I would like the cell (F) to turn red
I have a number of separate worksheets in one spreadsheet all based on the same list (eg customers); the customer's name is the first column and hence the 'key' in each worksheet; when I insert or delete a line in the main worksheet the formulae in the first (customer name) column are amended in the other worksheets BUT I ideally need more than that; when I insert a new customer in the first (main worksheet) I need a new line with that customer name inserting into the corresponding place in the other worksheets; and when I move a line (eg delete a customer and move them to the bottom of the main worksheet list) I need the corresponding lines in the other worksheets moving as well. I guess what I really need is a drill-down function; a main customer list and sub-lists all linking back to the main lists like you would get in database tables.
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 a list of item descriptions for products that are quite long, containing numbers, dashes, letters, and in many cases parentheses.
This is an example of one item description: 029861-ML PR HOLD (20# Banana IQF Sliced Patagonia Label).
On a separate worksheet, I will need to re-enter the full item descriptions for the purposes of tracking associated quantities listed by warehouse (in this case the ML found within the description is the code for the warehouse). Is there a way that when I begin re-typing the description into a new cell, the rest of the description can autopopulate (it is recognized within the list of all descriptions from the original worksheet) for the sake of saving time?
I've been working on this for a while unsuccessfully. Any way I can create a simple report that is autopopulated with the data from a schedule. The report worksheet would need to be organized by division and AM/PM. see attached for further explanation. I've tried things like "Index(Match)", but it's too cumbersome and not automated.
I am currently trying to create a database of products for my company. For each product I would like to include an image associated with it. I then want to have on another sheet a place where the user will click an error and be able to cycle through the products. As tehy cycle the associated image will pop up.
What I need to understand is after importing the image into excel, how do I associate that image to a cell so I can reference it in another sheet of the database. I am not concerned with how large the database will get, my pictures are quite small.
I'm tasked with looking up part numbers in Epicor's ERP database and entering the labor cost into excel. Is there any way to write a macro or VB program that lokks at the part number in excel, goes into epicor, pulls finds the part number and cut and pastes the cost data.
which databases people are using with importing excel data into a database.
I want to know people's experiences on different databases and suggestions on which database i can use maybe.
On this moment i do everything in excel, but excel is not longer working properly because of large files that need to be connected to 1 or more sheets.
This is the situation now:
VAX (Dos bases database) -> Comma seperated Files -> Importing in Excel -> Linking the data to sheets. Now I want to have a database where i can do all normal operations to have a good look and the situation of stock status, ordered parts, sales etc. (inventory control)
Who has experiences with databases ? And what are you doing with that database?
I am trying to create a database that contains data taken from several work books that i have saved in one folder on my hard drive. These workbooks contain quite a lot ** data, but i only want to extract the data i want to instead ** having to extract it all? these works books are used by several other people as well, so i want it to be able to update as data changes.
I was thinking about using data links, but that only seems to extract all the data instead ** just what i want?
What I am trying to do is extract all the data from a excel database based on criteria. When i specify the site and month I need to pull all the corresponding data and write it to a worksheet. Below is an example. I am not allowed to show all the data it is confidential.
Site Date Operator Month Chicago 12/3/11 Daniel December San Jose 4/8/12 Mike April New York 4/8/12 John April
I'm working on an Excel based product. As part of the security process I would like to require the user to enter a product id key into excel. Then the spreadsheet would compare the entered value to some kind of online database to verify the id key is valid. Finally, the spreadsheet would update the online database so that the id key is no longer functional. How easy is this to do?
I know verifying that the id key is valid is fairly simple.
Here is my biggest issue: How to get Excel to update the database and of course what form would this database take. Maybe its a table on a webpage, or google docs. Again the issue is how would I be able to update the table.
I'm trying to find a formula that looks at Column A on both sheets (each client is allocated a unique number) and if they match enter in column D of the referral sheet the month they were seen but only if it is a 1st contact (appt type on column D of contact sheet)
I have five columns of data: A & C are time measures; B & D are values associated with each time measure; and E is a matching value column that I want to populate. I am trying to match times and place in col E the Val 2 that matches times 1 and 2. Though many matches lie on the same row, there are many that don't (the real data uses several thousand rows). For example, Val 1 in cell A5 (100) is associated with cell C7 to find a matching value of 4.5 in cell E5. Note, occasionally, there will be replicate values for Val 2 (like cells C9 & C10). I need to match the one further down the list.
I am trying to set up a spreadsheet in Excel 2003 that pulls data from a lot of different websites and formats it all for me. I have managed to do this with a few websites but there are two which I'm having problems with.
This is the table I am trying to get, but when I do a manual web query and select the table and click OK, it says that no data has been found.
I have Excel 2003. I am working on a problem. I have multiple sheets for various purposes of my customers with all various columns. However i require to have a master sheet which gives me the due dates customer wise in one place. i.e it selects the customer, the worksheet purpose (say upcoming event) and the due date filed from various worksheets and combines into a master sheet,sorts the same customerwise,due date wise.
Using VBA i did create a worksheet which does this but using advanced filter but however how do i do it for all worksheets?
Using macro to go individually into each worksheet and collate data into one seems very unreliable to me. Is there a solution?
I work in a call centre and I record my daily figures. My target is 82%, and I would like a bar chart in Excel 2003 to colour the chart according to wether I hit target or not. If my daily figure >=82% the bar should be green.
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.
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 Spreadsheets on Excel 2003, one provided by a service supplier (i), and one from my own system (ii).
I need a macro attached to spreadsheet ii that looks for data matches between the F column of my spreadsheet, and the C column of the suppliers. Where data matches (i.e. if cell C42 in spreadsheet ii is the same as cell F23 in spreadsheet i) it transfers the contents of the A column of spreadhseet i and places it in the corresponding cell in the C column of spreadsheet ii.
Example 1 : In spreadsheet i cell C20=BN213YD. In spreadhseet ii cell F55=BN213YD. Therefore, the macro takes the contents of cell A20 in spreadsheet i and places it in cell C55 of spreadheet ii
Example 2 : In spreadsheet i Cell C75 = TN142XS. In spreadsheet ii this data is not found. The macro therefore takes no further action.
Basically, the suppliers spreadsheet has less information per row, but more entries overall. My spreadsheet is lacking a lot of suppliers references, but has more comprehensive information elsewhere. Until now i have been doing a manual search of the postcodes between the spreadsheets and rectifying them manually, but this is taking longer and longer as the spreadsheets grow.
So essentially I need a VBA Macro code for Excel 2003 that can take raw data that is input every month via a text document and move it to the next sheet in the workbook. This data is essentially broken down by a "platform" in the raw data section ("P") with monthly totals for each month but it is broken down by platform in total which goes in descending monthly order on the "dat" tabs (which is the final place for the data).
So what needs to happen is the data for the last two years must go from the "P" tab to the "PDat" tab under the correct platform and the correct spot for the newest month. The data that is input each month is in the same format month to month, just starting two rows down from the last month.
At the end of two years, the oldest year of data must be deleted and the other data moved up to the vacant area so that the sheet never grows too large (i.e., at the end of this year 2012 will be deleted and all the data will need to get moved up).
