Excel 2007 :: Changing Shortcut Keys

Nov 23, 2011

I am using Excel 2007 and I would like to move one tab to right with "Ctrl+Tab" and move one tab to the left with "Ctrl+Shift+Tab".

Macros will not let me assign "Ctrl+Shift" keys (that I could see). How can I accomplish this?

I am trying to use these exact keys because my mouse is setup so that leaning the scroll wheel left or right moves left or right in my tabbed applications by executing a keyboard shortcut. This works in all my applications except excel where the shortcut keys are different.

Excel 2010 :: Changing Legend Keys

Sep 18, 2012

is there a way to change the legend keys (aesthetically) in 2010?

I created a pie chart using a template but I don't want to keep the defualt legend keys. I tried changing the theme but it appears that the legend keys that come up are the same no matter what theme I change it to.

The Chart is a 3d Pie chart, I think that matters because the regular square legend keys show when the chart isn't 3D.

Disable All Shortcut Keys

Nov 20, 2007

I want to disable ALL shortcut key functions in my program. (i.e. if a user presses Ctrl+S it will NOT save, Ctrl+O will NOT open file, etc).

Of course I need this enabled again in something like workbook close for users to have this ability in other workbooks.

Alt Keys In 2007

Jul 28, 2008

I am having trouble with the 2003 Alt keys in 2007 ..

Example Alt E S T .... (paste special formats)

Any ideas .... I've looked at sharing / protection ... cant find anything to fix it....

Excel 2007 :: Changing Number To Add Decimal Places

Jan 30, 2013

I am using Excel 2007 and importing a list of coordinates. The coordinates are in a text file and separated by commas, so I'm opening the file as a delimitted file. All of the coordinates import correctly except one. The value is supposed to 52530.6372, but Excel is automatically changing it to 52530.6371999999

If I manually type a "2" to replace the "1999999", it changes it back. If I type "3" it stays as a 3.

I added a round function to force it to round to 4 decimal places and that seemed to work until I then tried using the number with text commands. When I used an ampersand to insert the number into a text string, the additional decimal places are back, even with a round function!

Excel 2007 :: Colour In Workbooks Keeps Randomly Changing?

May 9, 2013

So, We are using Excel 2002 & Excel 2007 and for some reason all of the workbooks that we have open decide to randomly change the fill colours of nearly all the cells. The only reason this is an issue is that a lot of my work envolves me sending reports to clients and from a business perspective this does not look professional at all.

To add to this, once the cells have changed colour, the original colour is no longer available to select.

Excel 2007 :: Changing Huge Numbers Of Hyperlinks (formulas)

Feb 5, 2014

I've got a main workbook (excel 2007) with a main spreadsheet where i group all the information (text and values) about brands and models linked to 10 workbooks (brands) with several spreadsheets (one spreadsheet=one model).

On the main spreadsheet I've got 16 lines for each model which they have the follow formulas, wich are linked to other workbook / spreadsheet (Mar/Gato)



and will return text values



And will return number values



And will return number values. The return value (;2 goes from 2 to 16.

This process repeats to all the 10 workbooks e and 250 spreadsheets

4) Table Array of the model spreadsheet

With regard to formula 1) and 2)

The problem is that the table array (on the model spreadsheet) could have diferent dimensions (becouse the launch year of the model) like this:

A$3:$CE$78 (2009 - Launch year)
A$3:$BR$78 (2010 - Launch year)
A$3:$BE$78 (2011 - Launch year)
A$3:$AR$78 (2012 - Launch year)
A$3:$AE$78 (2013 - Launch year)

And the return column (value) for formula 1) is always ;3;

And the return column (value) for formula 2) are like this:

;82; (2009 - Launch year)
;69; (2010 - Launch year)
;56; (2011 - Launch year)
;43; (2012 - Launch year)
;30; (2013 - Launch year)
;17; (2014 - Launch year)

The difference between above values is 13, it corresponds 12 months and the total column (12+1)

For the formula 3) the table array its the same, the only difference is instead of starting A$3, starts in A$2

5) The update of the formulas 1) 2) 3) for 2014

I'm doing this manually... The formulas are updated like this,for 2013, I've got table array A$3:$AE$78 and the return value (;17, then for 2014 i will have a table array A$3:$AR$78 and the return value will be (;30, and so on

5) Change the network drive

For other reasons I've to change my files to another network drive, something like this:

Q:KPI2014Main File

6) Main Goal

I was thinking using Excel's regular Find and Replace feature to change:

- The network drive designation
- the table array area
- The return value

But I don't know if this process ( Find and Replace) is safe and clean. I'm doing this manually and I've got on the main worbook/sheet 4000 lines with 3 formulas its 12000 operations!I'm on the 350 line....!

The main goal is to update the all formulas (links) to "brand" workbooks and inside "model" spreadsheets automatically with a macro.

Excel 2007 :: (Save Files In Format) Settings Keeps Changing

Sep 28, 2011

I am having trouble getting Excel 2007 on my work computer to save as .xlsx by default.

I have opened the Office Button > Excel Options > Save > Save files in this format and selected "Excel Workbook (*.xlsx)," and if I save as before closing Excel then it works perfect and saves the file as .xlsx. However if I close Excel, re-open it later and save a new file the default "Save as type:" is "Excel 97-2003 Workbook (*.xls)" and if I open the save options again the "Save files in this format" option is reverted back to "Excel 97-2003 Workbook (*.xls)."

I have finally overcome the [Compatibility Mode] issue by saving a file named "Book.xltx" (not "Book1.xltx") in the two default locations "C:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeOffice12XLSTART" and "D:Documents and SettingsusernameApplication DataMicrosoftExcelXLSTART" (we use the D: drive at work for personal files). I thought this would solve the save as issue but it hasn't. I have also changed the "Save files in this format" before saving the .xltx files in the locations to apply the settings to those specific files but that hasn't worked.

It is on my work computer so I am limited in what settings I can change because they have them pretty well locked down.

Excel 2007 :: Stop Links Changing When Use SaveAs To Create Backup?

Sep 25, 2013

I have two spreadsheets that are linked in Excel 2007. They both hold very different information about the same projects, so each row shares some information. However, they are both very large and I do not want to combine them in case the whole spreadsheet becomes unusable. I'm not allowed to use a database

When I save Spreadsheet 1 in a different location, so that I have a backup of the precious data, the link in Spreadsheet 2 changes to show that new location. I want the link to stay at the old location.

Is there a way to stop the link changing when I use SaveAs, so that when I open Spreadsheet 2 it refers to the original location of Spreadsheet 1?

Excel 2007 :: Changing Bar Series Color To Adjacent Cell Font Color

Aug 8, 2012

I am trying to use VBA in Excel 2007 to change bar chart series colors. I have found a few posts that link it to a cell background, but I'm struggling to find one that does the font color.

It would be great if I could change the bar chart series to match the color of the text in the A column, so that if I highlighted the value in A1 and changed the text color to orange for whatever reason, the chart updates the value of 1.2 to an orange bar (see below).

T. A1 B1

Sample 1 1.2

Sample 2 2.1

Sample 3 1.7

Sample 4 5.6

Comparing Two Excel Sheets With Unique Keys

Aug 18, 2009

I need to compare the 2 sheets with respect to a unique key. Once the unique key matches , I need to compare 5 other columns of the two excel sheet.

Note : There could be missing rows in either of the excel , so its necessary that we look up 2nd sheet completely to find the unique key.

For Example : In sheet 1 : The unique key is preent in column B and in Sheet 2: The unique key is present in column I. Once we locate the rows in both the sheets with the unque key matching, we would need to comapre , columns A, C, E AND F of the sheet 1 with columns A,B,C AND D of sheet 2.

We need to report if all the data matches when the unique key is same.

Excel 2010 :: Vertical Arrow Keys Moving Out Of The Cell When Editing It

When editing the cell and I press the up or down arrow key, instead of moving to the next line within the cell, the cursor moves to the next cell. Is there a way / an option to have this fixed?

Excel 2010 :: Nth Character In A String - Parsing Shortcut?

Feb 1, 2013

I have an Excel sheet with lots of shortcuts in the first column. It's the entire shortcut, including the .lnk extension.

What I need to do is to be able to parse out the string to make the shortcut human readable when I create the hyperlink. I'm saving the output as HTML for a user to open these shortcuts. It's on an internal LAN & secure. Using various versions of Excel (2010, 2007 & 2003, predominately the first). Trying to make an ugly, 140+ character shortcut into a more readable form for web navigation purposes.

Up to a point, the shortcuts are similar:

but, later on, they vary from that point out.


The strings are the same up to the 7th occurrence of the "" character, but after that, the foldernames start to change & the shortcut may be down a level (an extra folder) or more. Also, the lengths of the strings change as well, so I can only do positional parsing up to a point.

Excel 2010 :: Keyboard Shortcut To Resize Whole Application?

Apr 3, 2014

I need to resize Excel pretty frequently - I need to size the whole Excel app tall and all the way to the left, taking up about a third of my screen - then maximize it - then back to tall and left, etc. I can do it by clicking the "Restore Down" icon in the top right corner, but I can't figure out how to do it using the keyboard.

I've tried Ctrl-F8, Ctrl-F9 and Ctrl-F10, but they all act on individual workbooks within the Excel application. I want to resize the whole Excel application. Does it exist?

Excel Command Line Switch For (Read Only) Shortcut Not Working

Jul 31, 2014

I've recently created a macro which takes a .csv file and scrubs the data and dresses it up for a report. I've finally got it running without any problems and have added it individually to 5 different user accounts on my network as an add-in, but need a way to share it across a computer network without allowing others to edit the file.

The report is generated multiple times a day by the different users, none of whom are very computer literate (not that I am much better, myself), and the macro over-writes the old file each time. I've read that it's possible to simply create a shortcut to the file that automatically opens the spreadsheet in read-only format, which would be perfect for what I'm trying to do, but I haven't been able to get it to work so far.

My current shortcut pathway is similar to this:

"C:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeOffice15EXCEL.EXE" /R "C:UsersBenDocumentsOT Master.xlsx"

On my computer at work (Windows 7) the shortcut simply opens the spreadsheet so that anyone can edit it, instead of as a read-only file. On my computer at home (I'm trying to experiment) (windows 8.1) it won't even let me save the shortcut, saying I need to provide administrator permission & then cutting to a window that says "access denied".

I won't have the pathway for the actual file I'm trying to create a shortcut for until tomorrow when I get back to work, but I've formatted it essentially the same, directing to the excel.exe file, running the switch "/R", and then directing it to the actual file location.

The ultimate goal is to have multiple people be able to view the file without locking out those who need to update it.

Excel 2013 :: Column Filter Dropdown Keyboard Shortcut?

Jan 3, 2014

Is there a Column Filter Drop down Keyboard Shortcut for Excel 2013?

In Excel 2013, is there a keyboard shortcut to access the column filter drop down. For example, if you are on the cell A1, and you select Filter under the data menu and you want to filter column A without using your mouse, is there a keyboard shortcut to do this. I know Alt-A-C, clears the filters, but I want to know if there is a shortcut to access the filters in the column. In case my explanation isn't clear, I have included some screenshot pictures of the filter, before and after it is selected, to show what I am talking about, and what I am trying to accomplish without the mouse.

Changing Auto Reformat In 2007

Feb 2, 2010

I have a spread sheet that I'm using to organize data from a web based database. I have a formula that shortens a document number (i.e. 93400034) to a julian date (i.e. 9340). My problem is that when I copy and paste the 2010 document numbers (i.e. 00240057) into the spreadsheet excel automatically changes the number to 240057. I've tried to format the cell to read it as text, but everytime I paste into the cell excel changes it back to general and takes off the leading zeros. Is there a fix for this.
