I have several sheets I use for MI and most have similar amounts of data in, ie, a tab for each month with out 15-20 columns and upto 10,000 rows, then a couple of summary sheets with filtering and calculations in.
One of my sheets is currently 16Mb, when the others are about a third of that, with similar amounts of data.
Is there a way to find what is causing the extra space to be taken in this sheet?
Or does this seem about right for the amount of data?
What is it with Pivot Tables and their gigantic file size increases. I have a file. Which has a table of data behind it of approximately 5000-6000 rows and ~ 100 columns of data. If I save the file without the Pivot Table it's filesize is Mb. If I save it with the Table and Chart its filesize increases to over 10 Mb. I am experimenting with dynamically creating the pivot table so that I can conserve storage space but if someone has some idea on why pivot tables consume so much space
I have a macro-enabled template file in Excel 2007. I would like the user to be unable to save in any format other than macro-enabled. They should be free to choose a path and filename, but not the file type.
I presume this means some VBA code in the before save event, but I don't know what.
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 have files that have thousands of rows in them with company names. The rows contain the company name plus lots of other info. I'd like to be able to create files or sheets with the company name as the file or sheet name with the respective rows contained within it. Make sense?

I have a spreadsheet listed out with 2-3 pieces of data per row like:
Mark - abc John - def John - ghi Abby - xyz
What I need to do is create a new file for each unique string in column A. So for my brief example above, the "Mark" file would have 1 row, the "John" file would have 2 rows, etc. I also need to save the new file by the name in the first column (so "mark.xls"). (Conveniently, the table is sorted by the first column already.)
What I did was create a new worksheet for each row and then save that as my file. However I'm having problems getting my file to contain more than one row (I can get either the first or last row, but not all of them). I have about 30 spreadsheets to do this for, and each will create 80+ files... I'd really rather not do them by hand.
I'm on Excel 2007 if that matters.
I cobbled together some code I found in various places and this is what I have so far:
Sub CreateWorkbooks() Dim newSheet As Worksheet, regionSheet As Worksheet, CurSheet As Worksheet Dim cell As Object Dim regionRange As String Dim lngRows As Long Dim CurRow As Long
(note that the comments are what it is supposed to be doing, not necessarily what it is doing)
I have an excel add-in which is a ribbon which houses a great deal of financial tools that I use on a regular basis so I don't have to hunt around excel for things I use regularly. The add-in has always loaded automatically whenever I opened excel - whether I opened excel by creating a new blank document or by double clicking a previously existing file.
Starting a few days ago though, the add-in only opens when opening excel by creating a new blank file. I can't think of anything that changed recently. Using Excel 2007.
Even when opening a file by double clicking, Excel still says the add-in is active (in excel options).
I would like to create a PDF file from a RANGE Name, excel 2007, attach it to MS Outlook 2007, Once in Outlook I will select the recipient, add some remarks and hit send. I can do this now with a workbook but not a range.
If I have a cell which begins with a few spaces and then has a character, how do I use the find function to see how many spaces until some character is present in the cell. The * does not work with this.
I am wanting to find rows that with unique values in the first column, and then take those rows and display them in a more readable format. The section titled input is an example of information that would be pulled from a query into Excel. The Desired Output section is how I would like the info to be displayed. If this is possible without VBA then that is even better.
One of my excel files has refused to open and i think it is corrupted. The error message is; Excel cannot open because the file format or extension is not valid .Verify that the file has not been corrupted and that the file extension matches the format of the file.
How do i repair and recover all the data in the excel file.
I have an XLS file that gets data from an imported XML file. I need to apply some filters and then export it in a new XML file. I'm trying both "Development->Export" and "Save as->XML Data" procedures, but it always saves all data in the XLS document, not only the filtered. How can I obtain a new XML file with only filtered data???
Every time I start up excel whether it's opening a new spreadsheet or an existing one it tries to open one that I had deleted a while ago. I have nothing in my xlstartup files and I have thoroughly searched all files around it, before it, after it, and all in between. I went to Excel Options>Advanced>General and there is nothing in the field where it says "At startup open all files in:"
It seems to be trying to open the file from my desktop.
I'm working with a file from SharePoint (FileA), "FileA" goes out to Sharepoint and opens "FileB" (if not already open) then copies information from "FileA" to "FileB". However if "FileA" is left open, or someone else has it open I am unable to open "FileA". How in VBA can I check to ensure I don't have it open locally (if so swich and continue), checkout and open in SharePoint (if not already open) or Prompt with options to force checkin, checkout to copy info?
I'm using excel 2007 and I'm trying to import data from a .txt file into excel and analyze the data. One of the columns in the .txt file contains descriptions for each row and its in multiple rows. Is there a way to import the .txt file so that it will show a description for each row in one cell?
I imported the data into excel but the issue is the description.
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 two spreadsheets. one contains a master list of computer names. the other contains a list of computer names to be removed from the master list (exception list).
I need to go through the master list and remove any computer names that are on the exception list- for example, if 'computer1' is in the exception list, i have to find and remove 'computer1' from the master list.
The exception list is quite long, and I want to automate this process if possible. not sure how to achieve this.
