Excel 2007 :: Date Format While Copying Data From Another Source?
Jul 14, 2013
I have some data coming in from another source system which has the date format as "DD-MM-YYYY" but while pasting it to Excel (2007) sheet some date fields has just DD-MM-YY format which disrupts my macro. I did changing the language settings to "English(UK)" ,which i wanted, and changed the same in Excel options as well. But unfortunately it doesn't work.
I am stuck trying to sort data that looks like the following, into a format that I can use as source data for pivot tables/charts.

I will need to group Data multiple ways. However, I cant work out a good way to sort it. Can I have a suggestion on layout that I will be able to arrange data appropriately.
I have a simple reporting sheet where the data for orders place is in one sheet and on the other sheet is an imput box for 'date' and it filters through and presents a table of data and two graphs for the date chosen.
I give a daily report (contents of this sheet) but I also need to leave this sheet available for anyone to open and change to another date.
I want to copy the repor sheet into a new one and email but I want the graphs to remain, not go blank when anyone changes the original sheet.
I have a SS of a WW1 casualty list and one of the columns is Dates of Birth but the data has been entered in three different formats eg 21/2/1898 or 21.2.1898 or 21 Feb 1898. I have tried to Format Cells and change the date format to the slash but after highlighting a number of fields and right clicking they will not re format. Though i use Excel quite a bit i am a general user and dont understand it in depth.
I'm a 2007 user. I am trying to conditional format a range of F1:J10, where F1 will be conditionally formatted relationally to A1. G1 is relational to B1. H2 relational to C2, etc., all the way down to J10 relational to E10. My conditional format formula in cell F1 is >A1*2 (will format F1 as orange). I want to be able to copy the conditional formatting over so the formula in J10 for example would be: >E10*2 (will format it orange).
I omit the "$" in the conditional format formula in an attempt to prevent it from being absolute. But every time I copy the conditional formatting over to the other cells, the formula within those cells remains identical to the formula in the original cell.
I now have XL 2007 but no longer work at the same place so do not have access to the external data source. I would like to view the SQL statements that I wrote back then but keep getting error that I am not connected to external data source and so cannot see my sql statements. I have MS Query 2007.
I have a table of data (total 142 rows). Column contains dates, in the format dd-mmm-yyyy.
I tried to filter using DATE FILTERS->EQUALS and in the custom filter window, I chose EQUALS then picked a date from the date picker icon. The date I picked was 5/4/2009 (this is May 4, 2009, formatted automaticall by excel as m/d/yyyy).
When I clicked OK, nothing showed up despite the fact that there are 6 occurences of May 4, 2009 (formatted as dd-mmm-yyyy in the data table)
So my questions are:
1. Is this due to the formatting?
2. Is there a way to change the date format supplied by the date picker?
I am looking for macro where it can generate multiple workbooks with a single worksheet data source. I have this worksheet with data which is look like this:
This data will be places in 1 workbook for each of line with given file name as page number above those workbooks generated will have same information for each line but at different cell position such as: take this example at line 3
Microsoft Excel 2007 Window 7Pro 64bit
This line could be up to 50 lines of data. I try google search but found most about consolidate multiple workbooks to single worksheet. I do have VBA reference that I refer to from [URL] ......
How to put the information from the worksheet into specific position in the workbooks.
I have 4 workbooks, all of them contain data that is managed by other teams at my company. I need to take all of this data, organize, and concatenate it into one sheet for myself, that I will then reference in other workbooks to various OTHER departments in our company that need the data for certain projects. I have the organization laid out in a lot of very complex formulas so that most of this is automated, and not manual.
I need a solution that can pull data from the 4 workbooks without locking them for use, to allow me to keep my document open all the time, and they can update theirs at their leisure. Everything works fine, until I hit the refresh button. Once this is hit, all of the linked documents are locked and cannot be opened, even in "Read Only" mode. Once I close the master document, the files are free to be opened. I know a workaround for now is that i can not "refresh" the document, but rather close and re open it for changes.
Some steps I have already tried :
1. Create an intermediary file that no one uses, and can be locked all day without a problem. This doesn't work for me since the intermediary file needs to be open to refresh, which locks the original source doc, leaving me in the same place as before.
2.Modify the connection string to display "Mode=Read;" instead of "Mode=Share Deny Read"
3.Create a new connection with "Read" only selected in the Advanced Tab
I am trying to find a way in Excel 2007 to convert the date from US format to UK format, I tried to change it by using [right click=>Format cell=>Select Date=>Select the first option in Type:*14-03-01=>OK], but I doesn't work , the attached file are presenting the date in US format.
I have a question about conversion of a text format into date format.
2 computers, the first windows vista, the second Windows 8, both Excel 2007.
The purpose is to calculate the difference between 2 dates with hour:minutes:seconds, like for example: 18/12/2012 19:20:00 and 18/12/2012 19:23:03.
So in this example the result should be 00:03:03.
Both dates are formatted with 'personalized' : dd/mm/yyyy hh/mm.
In the first computer everything works like it should, but in the second it is apparently impossible to transform the first of those date h:m:s which is originally in a text format into a date format. I tried all the methods which i found to transform a text date format into a date , like multiplication with 1, Datevalue and others, but nothing seems to work, the result is always "#Value".
I having problem to determine the format value of dates that needs to be inserted in a Userform.
I have the following format in my userform for my Textbox:
When I select the calendar in my userform that is set as follows:
And select the first day of the month, it will always add the format as 05/01/2014 but if I select today’s date as example it will add it in the right format: 2014/05/26
I have included a sample to demonstrate the function of the calendar as I have declared it public as d in a module, therefore making the population of my userforms textbox easier to add information on dates.
If you add 2014/05/01 - 2014/05/26 and 2014/05/06 you will see where the system is having problem with the month and dates I guess the system confuses the two?
I am trying to develop a code which extracts the data from text files inside a folder (Folder test in my desktop) into one sheet. The Macro is in the workbook “Text Extract” which is an excel 2007 file. The data of each text should be copied to Sheet1 of this workbook one below the other. For testing purpose I have kept only one text file in the folder and was trying to copy the data from the text data extracted sheet to Cell A1 of Sheet1 of workbook “Text Extract”. The code works fine till copying the data, but shows below error in the line “Selection.Paste”:
Run time error 438: Object doesn’t support this property or method.
Below is the code: Sub LoopThroughFiles() Dim strFile As String Dim strPath As String
I am working on a "3 worksheet" excel workbook. The first worksheet does not require any header.
I'd like to enter data into the second sheet (say cells A1 and B1), and use VBA to pull from those cells to generate the same custom header for both the second and third worksheets.
For example, I'd like the header to pull "# 123456" from cell A1, and "789" from B1 in sheet two, putting them in a centered header for both sheets two and three (same reference cells from sheet two for both, not new values of A1 and B1 from sheet 3 for sheet 3 header). I'd like to format in a way that looks something like this:
I'm currently running Excel 07, and was able to pull from a cell on one worksheet into that sheet's header but couldn't get it to span multiple sheets.
I have a userform with a textbox and would like the user to type inside the textbox which in turn send the text typed to a cell on my spread sheet say sheet 1 cell ref A1. I am writing the following into the control source Sheet1!A1 but the control source does not except this. I am using excel 2007 .
I have a set of data points with date and time shown in the picture. I need to take out all the data point that are at the 30 min interval. Meaning I only want to have the data points hourly only. What can I do to remove the :30 minute datas.
I have tried the find option typing In :30 and getting all the points but then have to replace, which I do not want to do. Need to remove them so they do not show up on the trends ( graphs) I made for them.
This is for excel 2007.
Seems I can't get picture up on the ipad, so the data points look like this
Need to create Working order (in Excel 2007) for filling machine in my factory. Working order is changeable from day to day and the deference is product quantity. Product quantity in working order [File - Working order] is changing according to the each sales plan [7-Jan-13, 8-Jan-13] - (File Working order is Linked to the appropriate sales plan in this case - [7-Jan-13]).
Anyway, I need to change the source workbook "sales plan" from [7-Jan-13] to [8-Jan-13] by changing source workbook name in red cell [File - Working order] and not to browsing location?
All source workbooks [sales plan 7-Jan-13, 8-Jan-13]are at the same location in the same folder, only difference is the source workbook names. So, is it possible to change source workbook name (File - Working order - red cell) for all external references (File - Working order - green cells) at the same time, and avoid annoying browsing?
(Excel 2007). I have a report that I download which looks like this: The actual report has about 10000+ lines
I don't really want a macro for it but a formula that would copy the name in column A down in Column C but only to the point where the next name starts. So for example James Brown would be copied down in Column C till it reach Account Number 81914 and so on?

I have set up a table and for ease of explanantion Column C has a formulas in it to add together the values found in Column A and B.
EG C3 foumula = "=sum(A3+B3)"
Now in cols d & e I have manually entered figures and in colum F I want to add up those figures so F3 should read "=sum(D3+E3)"
In the past I have always been able to just copy the cell C3 and paste it into F3 and the formula would automatically copy and offset the various cells to the correct cells for the new posiitoning.
However, for some reason when I copy the cell, it now pastes the value only into the pasted cell and does not copy the formula, if I click on paste special to try to just copy the formula I now get a pop up asking me if I want to paste as Unicode Text or Text.
I am using VBA to export an access query into excel, the query works fine in access but when importing the data into an excel spreadsheet, it doesn't display the date column headers in the correct format.
The problem I have is that the dates 1 to 12 are displayed the wrong way round eg:
In Access date column headers from query are: 09/01/2008, 11/01/2008, 12/01/2008, 14/01/2008, 15/01/2008 etc.
But when exporting to excel, the above dates are shown as: 01/09/2008, 01/11/2008, 01/12/2008, 14/01/2008, 15/01/2008 etc
It seems to be changing round the dd/mm when I export, but only upto 12 when the day is 13 or more it is displayed correctly.

I am creating many tables in excel using a macro, and I want to copy them into a word document for later use. All the tables come from a long list, so for simplicity, they all get created on the same range starting at F1. Before deleting the existing table and adding the new one, I'm trying to copy/cut the table and paste it into a word document.
In case it makes a difference, I have office 2007
VB: Sub ExcelToWord(LastRow) Dim objWord As Word.Application Range("F1:F" & LastRow).Copy With objWord .Documents.Add .Selection.Paste .Visible = True End With End Sub
I am trying to copy two columns to a different sheet in vba code. I will ultimately need to do this multiple times but I think I have the iteration part ok, it's just the copy part that seems to be wrong.
The original code I used for this works great on one column but I knew the letter column each time I used it. Now I am trying to get two columns at a time and will be iterating through several based on user selections. I figure that will be faster to do both columns as the two columns are side by side.
I am getting an error on the PasteSpectial line "Run-time error '1004' PasteSpecail method of Range class failed.
I'm not sure where to go with this but I am assuming I have a problem with the Range selection lines on either the source or destination or both. The support is just for Macro errors.
My knowledge of Excel 2007 is minimal, from formatting individual cells, to creating column totals. I've used it for years in my household budgets. I have an attendance form which is about 3 pages long; currently, it's separated at page breaks, with column totals at the bottom of each 'page'. This is easy because the Row #s are infinite, right? Lately there have been regular adjustments, and I believe the project might be less cumbersome if it were spread out on separate sheets, but how to bring the rows of column totals to cumulative totals on the last sheet.
I just wrote two macros that each produce separate text files (call them 'A' and 'B'). I want to open 'B' with Excel VBA, copy all of its contents, and paste that content into 'A' right after a specific location in 'A' (where I have 10 consecutive asterisks, i.e., **********).
Most topics relating to Excel VBA and .txt files have to do with either importing / exporting into Excel (not what I want), or with associating .txt files to Excel (also not what I want).
I have created a pivot table in a workbook which relates to data from 2011 - 2012 and this works perfectly. What I now need to do is to copy the pivot table (without the data source) to a new workbook for data which will be collected from 2012 - 2013. Unfortunately when I copy it and try and find the new data source it does not update the filters according to the data in the new workbook.
