Excel 2007 :: How To Do Multiple Hyperlinks In A Column
Jul 15, 2014
I have Excel 2007, and I have column 1 with a thousand entries "HC 14-0001" all the way down to "HC 14-1000". I have on my hard drive 1000 foldiers named the exact same "HC 14-0001 to HC 14-1000". I want to create a Hyperlink from each item in that column to its corrisponding folder on the hard drive. I can easily create the Hyperlink, but I want to find someway to copy them. I can create the first two rows... HC 14-0001 and HC 14-0002 and create good Hyperlinks to the folders, but when I highlight them and drag them down, the excel spreedsheet is updated all the way to HC 14-1000, but the Hyperlinks do not change.
How can I get the Hyperlinks to change? I don't want to spend the next week creating Hyperlinks for a 1000 entries on this spread sheet, and I have 5 other spreadsheets exactly the same.
I received a USB drive from a client with an Excel spreadsheet with hyperlinks to PDF's (not sure of the version it was originally created in but my version is 2007). The PDF's are in another folder on the USB drive.
The cells with the hyperlinks have a formula to hidden cells [i.e. =HYPERLINK(C17,B17)] - in column B is the name of the hyperlink and in column C looks to be the file trial to the PDF (please see attached picture).
When I select the link, I get an Alert Box stating, "Cannot open the specified file." How I can get these links to work?
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)
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:
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.
Problem: The macro will be assigned to a command button and will be used by laypersons when they finish filling in data on a worksheet in Workbook 1. The sheet contains maybe 30 columns and 50 rows with a mix of fixed values and values generated by Vlookup and Indirect formulas. I need to copy the sheet from Workbook 1 to Workbook 2. Workbook 2 will be for archival purposes so I want to convert all formulas to fixed values. The catch is dealing with some cells that contain hyperlinks to PDF files...
Current Solution: I currently do this with a macro that moves/copies the sheet from Workbook 1 to Workbook 2, it then selects all cells in the new sheet in Workbook 2, copies all cells, then pastes-special "as values" to the exact same cell locations. This works great for me since the cell formatting and data in the sheet are VERY irregular and I have merged cells all over the place. This method keeps the exact formatting I need maintain:
The problem is that a few of the cells have hyperlinks with "friendly names" and I lose the hyperlinks when I convert to values. The hyperlinks are not inserted directly, they are created by a formula, =HYPERLINK("N:Filepath"&C16&".PDF", "Click_For_PDF"), and the row and column that contains the hyper link will vary for each sheet I want to migrate from Workbook 1 to Workbook 2 using this macro. I want to keep the hyperlink active with the clickable friendly name in Workbook 2.
Possible Solution: I'm open to all types of solutions, but is there a way to essentially use my existing macro but AFTER converting to values with paste-special, go back to the original sheet in Workbook 1 that still contains formulas (or maybe a temporary duplicate sheet I migrate to Workbook 2?), search for all cells with a "value" of "Click_For_PDF", copy ONLY those cells and paste (normal) into the corresponding cell locations in the sheet in Workbook 2 that now contains fixed values? ALL of my hyperlinks have the friendly name "Click_For_PDF" so it should be an easy way to identify the hyperlink cells. The cell location of the hyperlink copied in Workbook 1 needs to carry over to Workbook 2 and I said before, the row and col vary with every sheet I want to archive with this macro.
I am trying to make an excel sheet which has a 2 column drop down. For example I want to have a drop down list in column 1 and when I select "Item A" in column 2 "item A" 's phone number appears. If i select "item B" form the drop down this, "Item B's" phone number would also appear in column 2 and so on. how this is done (if possible) on Excel 2007? I was hoping it could be done from one workbook to another but If it is easier from one worksheet to another then that is fine too.
I need to transpose data from Column A to Row 2 and down.
The data in column A is in sections of 19 rows and then a blank cell and another 19 rows of data contimuously, It is a dynamic range and can contain many thousands of Rows.
The data needs to be transposed from Column A to row 2 (row 1 has the head line for each column) so the 19 lines of data is now spread accross 19 columns in row 2 and the next section from column A is spread accross the 19 columns in row 3 and so on.
My data looks similar to the below. (Test Number 0001 starts in A1)
What I am looking to do is this... (using Excel 2007)
I need to have more dependent lists based on the selection in Column A. (My column B is already set up and works perfectly using INDIRECT)
For example: Column F would be a dependent list of colors based on the sales rep chosen in Column A Column I would be a dependent list of managers based on the sales rep chosen in Column A Column M would be a dependent list of part numbers based on the rep chosen in column A
without using VBA? (If I HAD to - okay, the other person maintaining the sheet would be lost....) I haven't been able to find anything close to what I want to do online - maybe I am just not using the correct terms.
Excel 2007. I have an Excel file that contains a data dump from an external database file with numerous analytical sheets that perform calculations. Some of these calculations utilize the SUMIFs function that was introduced in Excel 2007. This function does an outstanding job of summing a column on the data sheet based on multiple criteria.
However, someone high up in management in my organization would like to "drill down" into the data behind the
SUMIFs formulas to get a quick snapshot of the lines in the database that roll into the SUMIFs formula. =SUMIFS(DataBase!E:E,Data!A:A,C7,DataBase!B:B,D7,DataBase!C:C,E7,DataBase!D:D,F7)
If I double click on a cell with the formula above, Excel takes me to the Database tab and selects Column E which is close, but not exactly what I need. What I really need is for Excel to only show the rows on the database sheet that make up the total in the SUMIFs formula and not the entire data dump from the database.
At present, we have to manually apply the autofilter on multiple columns to show the rows in column E that make up the total in the SUMIFs formula which is a tedious and time consuming task. Is there a way to force Excel to do this? Suggested custom database application or pivot tables, but we do not want to reinvent the wheel.
I have an Excel Spreadsheet (2007) that contains over 500,000 records that shows Electric meter usage per month over a 24 month period per meter. What I want to be able to do is to select a meter row per number and copy is to it's own worksheet. At the end - I want to be able to have a seperate worksheet per electric meter number - that I can create a graph. If I go through all 9000 meters and copy and paste into a different worksheet - it will take me weeks to do manually. How can I do this automatically?
I have a column of cells with Customer info and address in each row, that I need to move into multiple columns. ie Cust name, acct #,address, city,state, zip the problem is ALL of the info for each customer is in ONE cell.To be clear, cell B1 has complete name address etc for one customer, B2 has the info for another, B3... on and on. To complicate matters as in the example, there is not a pattern in the lines. the first example shows the info beginning on the 2nd line of the cell, but the 2nd example shows info in the first line. I have tried the text to column fixed width. Didn't work because names and addresses are of varying lengths. Then I tried delimited, but there isn't a common separation between different data. I am using excel 2007. FYI I did go through many many threads and found some that were close to my problem but not close enough to work.

Autofill column B with sequential values based on whether value in column A changes its value.
I would like to autofill column 'B' with sequential values (i.e. GenoMap1, Genomap2, Genomap3,... GenoMap10, GenoMap11, GenoMap12,... GenoMap104, GenoMap105, etc...), but changing to the sequential GenoMap# only when the value in column A changes.
I need to remove the duplicates under column B for each item under column A and I can't seem to figure out how to do it.
I'm using Excel 2007; I would prefer a VBA solution, as I have to do this on a monthly basis. However, if a formula is the best way to go, then that's just fine. Either way, I'm preparing the data for a pivot table. I am unable to post the actual document in the interest of data protection.
Essentially, I'd like to turn this-
_ A B 1 Paris Bill 2 Paris Bill 3 Paris Mike 4 Paris Derek 5 Paris Derek 6 London Mike 7 London Bill 8 London Mike 9 London Bill 10 London Derek 11 Tokyo Derek 12 Tokyo Derek 13 Tokyo Derek
_ A B 1 Paris Bill 2 Paris Mike 3 Paris Derek 4 London Mike 5 London Bill 6 London Derek 7 Tokyo Derek
In other words, each city should have only one instance of any name that accompanies it; not all names will accompany each city.
I am using Excel 2007 and am attempting to write multiple IF statements within a cell. This multi-cell validation would be used to validate that A=B and C=D but A&B do not equal C&D as illustrated below:
I'm looking to simply find a function that allows me to lookup a certain value in a table of data and return the value in a specific column. So if I looked up the current date, 6/27/2011, it would return the week it is in (26). I dont want to be limited to just the monday column however, as the dates I will be throughout the entire week. Is there an easy way to do this in excel 2007?
I am using Windows xp and Excel 2007. I'm creating a user form and have a vlookup formula that goes to a table and looks up calories and sodium based on the text entered by the user. My problem is that I want to be able to populate the 3 columns with information and then sum the values that are returned to the Calories and Sodium columns. Is that possible with Vlookup?
I am having cell return blank if no value is found. it is currently looking only at one sheet.
I don't want it to combine the values like this formula does. =(VLOOKUP(Q2,'sheet3'!$D$2:$K$200,7,FALSE)&","&VLOOKUP(Q24,'sheet2'!$D$2:$K$1807,7,FALSE)) #.###,##.##
sheet 1 is where the cell I am writing the formula is in, and I want to look in sheet 2, 3, and possible 4 for a value, I want to only have the greatest value show between the sheets. is this possible.
I'm trying to create a sheet in Excel 2007 that organises shipments, the file is normally pretty large so I want to create a macro which does a few things, so when printed it's easier to work with. First one is to make a gap when items change in Column B and Column F, I can use the below code to make the gaps for one column but not both without making a separate macro. Is there a way to make the gaps on changes in columns B & F on one macro? (I have an example nearer the end)
Dim Rng As Range Dim x As Long Set Rng = Range("F12:F" & Range("F65536").End(xlUp).Row) For x = Rng.Rows.Count To 2 Step -1 If Rng.Cells(x, 1).Offset(-1, 0).Value Rng.Cells(x, 1).Value Then Rng.Cells(x, 1).EntireRow.Insert Shift:=x1Down Rng.Cells(x, 1).EntireRow.Insert Shift:=x1Down End If Next x
After the data is separated I wanted to insert totals of the weights when there is a spacing, and a counter which stops after each spacing and restarts when the next items start.
Here is an example of the data I have before the Macro with Columns.
Column B Column C Column F Column I
Destination of order booking ref Size weight of orders
This is how I would like the date to look like after the macro.
Column B Column C Column F Column I
Count Destination of order booking ref Size weight of orders
I have a question regarding filtering of columns. I have set up Excel 2007 so that I can click on the drop-down menu in each column to filter them.
However, in my data set there is one blank row separating two set of rows. Now, when I apply the filter on a column, all the rows above the blank row filter correctly, but all the rows below stay un-filtered.
I guess Excel only looks at the consecutive rows, then stops when it hits a blank row. Is there any way of applying the filter beyond a blank row (i.e. the whole column)?
i make a lot of "trending" files at work where i link a cell to a seperate workbook where all workbooks are in the same folder.
these workbooks all have the same name with the date at the end
example: workbook 06-01-2011 workbook 06-02-2011 all the way to workbook 12-31-2011
usually i use find replace to change the date one at a time, but doing that 365 (x how many cells i have referencing) times is redundant
i have seein INDIRECT of the cell changes but nothing for the workbook name chaning
here is what i am trying to do: ='C:File Path[WorkbookX.xls]Sheet1'!A1 where the X WorkbookX is variable (the date at end of file name)
i have a list of all workbook names or just the dates and would like to do something like:
=D1&$A$1 where D1 is the full path name or ='C:File Path[Workbook"D1".xls]Sheet1'!A1 where D1 is the date name
using excel 07 i prefer not to use a macro for how i am doing this but if a macro is the only way then i cannot have it actually open the files to pull the data. i prefer no macro since i set it up for future dates so when the new file is created it automatically updates the reference.
my end result i usually have something like A1=referenced cell from first workbook, A2= cell from 2nd book, etc. sometimes B1 would = a different cell from first workbook and so on if i am trending multiple cells from the workbooks
The workbook has two worksheets "Data" & "Crunch". "Data" contains the raw data-range B1:U50. "Crunch" is the processing worksheet. Row 1 is a header row. Columns A-D are empty. Column E (rows 2-81) contain the numbers 1-80.
The macro is intended to run in "Crunch". I need to add the CountIf function in every cell/row filling the range F2:BC81. A loop does the trick for me to fill the rows in each column but I don't know how to move the loop down each column without creating a new loop.
A section of the code is below. Notice a majority of the code is the same, the copy in red is variable from loop to loop. I need to repeat this loop through column "BC" (50 times in total). My guess is there is a way to write this code one time instead of 50 times adjusting the variable components.
Code: 'Find total # of records and then store in variable totalrecords = ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Rows.Count 'CountIf Statement
I'm using Xl 07 and need to combine two sheets of contact info and have them sorted alphabetically.
Each contact entry takes the follwing form(comma's denote new columns)
55555, Name , John, Smith, Tel: , 555-555-5555 ID , Company, XXX , , Email, xxxxxx
Each sheet has a list of 200 or so entries about 400 rows long. The entries on each sheet are sorted in alphabetical order. the names also alternate alphabetically from sheet to sheet. So when i look at the entries on my final sheet, the 1st will be from sheet1 the second from sheet2 the third from sheet1 and the fourth from sheet2 etc.
I'm not sure whether I should build a new list by pulling alternating entries from each sheet or just copy one list below the other and then try to sort it somehow.
I'm using 2007 and want to add conditional formatting to multiple cells.
Say I have 3 columns and 10 rows of data (A1:10 ; B1:10 ; C1:10). I want to add an icon set to everything in columns B and C based on a comparison with the figure on their immeidate left. So B1 is compared to A1, C1 to B1 etc.
When I do it though it compares everything to A1 (formula in the Conditional Formating is =$A$1 and it won't let me remove the $'s). It looks to me like I can't do it and have to add the formatting to every cell indiviually (which is quite a lot).
I am using Excel 2007. I'd like to merge multiple sheets (about 13) into one workbook. The sheets are placed in one folder, and they all include 2 sheets, - only the first sheet should be merged into the final workbook.
The sheets will be updated every 3 months and merged again (-thus replacing the old data).
I have a workbook with 4 sheets and with sheet 5 as a "consolidated" sheet. I have to create the macro, which will on a daily basis copy the populated data from those 4 sheets and paste into the sheet 5 (same workbook). The data in the Sheet 5 should be pasted from row 2 below each other.. Row 1 will be the headings and shouldn't be replaced. The data in all 4 sheets should be copied from row starting 37, columns C to BA but it will end with different row numbers. note that columns A & B are populated but shouldn't be copied.
