If user changes cell A1 then give msg box "do not edit this cell" and then change it back to "Quarter". I tried using lock and protect sheet but it limits the other cells. So a msg box and resetting the cell will work better.
I enter 13 digit number in a cell, when I save my Worksheet in CSV format the number is changed.
Example: I enter 9328627000014 (this is a barcode) After saving this file the number is displayed in the Formula Bar as 9328630000000 and in the Cell it show up as 9.33E+12 When I go to Format Cells, this cell is selected as Scientific. When I change it to Number, after saving it again it returns back to scientific with the old display. Also when I enter 2 digit number in another cell in another column and I choose to be displayed as number with 2 decimal places, after saving the file it returns back as General format. When I am saving this file as CSV a window pops up with a warning that my file may contain features that are not compatible with CSV. I can not choose text format in the cell because it is a datafeed and it has to be read correctly as number.
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 very basic understanding of excel, I mean BASIC, for my work I have multiple dates for vehicles to go in for inspections. I would like the cells to change colours when within 30 days, 10 days and 5 days. I'm on a work excel 2003.
I am creating an invoice form in Excel 2003. I like to know if it is possible to increase the value of cel A1 by one everytime a new sheet is created.
For example i created my first worksheet and gave an invoice number 001. Now I create a new worksheet by right clicking on the tab and choose copy/move. I like the second work sheet change the invoice number to 002.
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.
I recently upgraded from Excel 2003 to 2007, and the worksheet change procedure that i have embedded in my worksheet no longer fires when the criteria are met. If and if I fix it to work in 2007, will it still work in 2003?
Here is my procedure:
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) Dim rngCell As Excel.Range If Not Intersect(Target, Range("C19:R19")) Is Nothing Then For Each rngCell In Intersect(Target, Range("C19:R19")) If rngCell.Value = "BLACK" Then MsgBox "Please select a shading style", , "Shading Style Required" End If Next rngCell End If End Sub
On one of our computers at work, Excel is acting especially strange. The conditional formatting in Excel on one of our computers is not working. In addition, we cannot fill a cell with any color or change the color of the writing. We can click a color for the letters and type it in, but immediately after another cell is highlighted, the writing goes black again. When we try to highlight multiple cells with the cursor, the cells are black instead of the normal color. This happens to not just spreadsheets that are new, but existing spreadsheets on our shared drive from only this one computer as well. No other computers are affected this way. All other computers show the spreadsheets fine and do not have any functionality issues.
New cases are entered on to the spreadsheet. The case remains open until a closure date is entered, at which point the case is closed. What I need is the following:
Cell A3 = should say "Open" if there is no value in cell Y3 Cell A3 = should say "Closed" if a date or any value is entered in cell Y3. Ideally it should only say "Closed" if a date is entered in format xx/xx/xx, but am flexible so that it says "Closed" if any data is input.
At the moment Cell A1 has a drop down list consisting of open and closed. I will remove this if it causes complication.
I have managed to get a inpubox into a sheet which takes in data and returns a particular value. Is it possible to get a msgbox to be returned displaying the particular value which will change upon the input?
I have the following code, that I found on this forum, in my worksheet change event.
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) Static old_value As Variant If Sheet1.Range("C5").Value <> old_value Then 'a change has occured in cell C5 so do your processing.... MsgBox "Changing 5" old_value = Sheet1.Range("C5") End If.............................
Im searching for a script to help me insert the current time value when a value within the row is changed. For example, if a value changes within the specified row, i.e. B1 changes, then within B12, the current date is inserted. However if B1 does not change then the old B12 value (old last change date) stays the same.
I am using the camera tool in excel to show a range of cells. Is it possible to change the range the camera tool looks at conditionally? It's possible to do it manually and I've seen this done using a camera object to refer to charts in single cells, but have been unable to figure out how to do it by range.
I have a bit of code that calls a formatting sub depending on which cell is modified. It is triggered by the Worksheet_Change event, determines which cell is modified, and either calls the formatting sub or doesn't based on the location of the modified cell.
Some of the columns in the sheet have data validation with drop downs. If I select a value from the drop down, it doesn't trigger the Worksheet_Change. If I type a value into the same cell, it does.
This was apparently an issue in Excel '97, but supposedly fixed in '03?
I have an Excel 2003 file that contains hyperlinks to OneNote notebooks on a Sharepoint site. An Excel macro looks for these links and determines the full hyperlink address which is then assigned to a variable. An Outlook message is generated which includes the hyperlinks.
The hyperlinks work in the Excel file. I can also copy them from OneNote and manually paste them into an Outlook message and they work. However, when I obtain their full address and transfer that to the email through code, the links do not work. The hyperlink address from OneNote starts with "onenote:http" which is not recognized as a link.
If I can do this manually, there must be a way to do this with vba. Are there characters I need to include in the OneNote hyperlink address to make this work? Is there another way to transfer the working link from Excel to Outlook?
In Excel 2003 I have Manually Grouped a number of rows. (Data>Group and Outline>Group).
If I use the buttons with the numbers 1, 2, 3 (indicating an outlining level) to collapse or expand the outline I receive the Error Message: "Cannot shift objects off sheet."
If I use the collapse button (-) or expand (+) button the data collapses and expands as I would expect.
I am aware of the normal issues surrounding objects and outlining and have ensured that I have changed the properties of all my of the objects in the sheet to "Move and size with cells". There are no comments in the grouped rows.
The following formula was, several weeks ago, very graciously offered to me from one of Excel Forum's contributors.
My request was to find a formula that would add each 6th row starting in row e8 (e8+e14+e20+e26+e32 etc. through e6782) in column "e" when the column was 6782 rows deep from top to bottom. (i am not trying to add every number in column e, just each 6th row, starting at e8 and going through row e6782).
I entered the formula into my spread sheet and, voila, I had a sum that I assumed was accurate for my spread sheet of ticket sales. I began to question the functionality of the formula when I altered the E8:E6782 parameters (which represented the gross ticket sales) to E4:E6778, in an effort to sum up the E4 values e4,e10,e16, e22,e28,etc. . . (which represents the net values after commissions were deducted). The difference in the two sums (e8 values Versus the e4 values) was incorrect and did not represent the appropriate commissions (which should have been 15%).
I have a Log In/Log Out report that I need pulling data from.
Ultimately what I want to do is get the amount of time my employees were logged out.
I am using Excel 2003. Attached is an example of the data I'm working with.
Sheet 1 contains the data, and Sheet 2 will be the summary.
So, looking at Bob's times: If column A contains Bob (A2 in this case), and the same row in column G (G2) contains 79, subtract the contents of the same row in column F (F2) from the next row down in column D (D3) (which would be D3 - F2). That result should populate on Sheet 2 next to Bob's name in h:mm:ss format.
If there is nothing in the next row down in column D, then do nothing.
I would like to leave the data as is, if possible. There are extension numbers next to the names in the data. If possible to ignore those when rolling up to the summary that would be useful. Also, on the summary sheet, if the employee is not on the data sheet (if they had the day off) they can have 0 or NA or something to indicate there is no data for them.
In Excel 2003 the Status Bar is missing. I know to go to Tools, Options, View to view and hide the Status Bar however as i cannot see Tools (as Status Bar missing) is there another way to get the Status Bar back?
I have used MS Office Excel 2003 for many years without difficulty in XP. Suddenly I find I can't open many of my old documents. I get a message,"Microsoft Office (InfoPath2003) cannot open (the following file, etc.) A second message says, "The form contains XML that is not parsed: An invalid character was found in the content. Line 0, Position 0" Then I get the message "MS Office is not currently set as default." I complete the instructions that follow and it is now corrected but I continue to get the same error messages.
I am running Excel 2003.I have a spreadsheet with two worksheets, each worksheet has a Refresh button that runs a Data Extract Macro.The Data Extract Macro imports Data from another spreadsheet.I want to have the spreadsheet automatically run my Data Extract Macros for both worksheets at a specific time each week. (Scheduled task) Regardless of whether or not the excel file is open.
