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?
I have trouble with the last part of a backup script, this part checks in subdir and should delete the oldest file (of 4) but since a while back it instead delete the new file saved earlier in the script and I dont know how to fix it. Here is the ...
I already have a macro that on opening the workbook checks to see if the workbook has been renamed outside excel in windows and if so closes the workbook. I need a macro to intercept the save as command and prevent the user from saving the workbook as another name. I would however still like the user to be able to save. I would also like them to be able to save the workbook in another directory but only with the same workbook name.
When opening a .CSV created from a third party software, one of the columns is converted to date format. The numbers are imported in #/# format. and Excel changes most of the numbers to 2-Jan, 3-Jan etc... This would not be that big of an issue if I could simply set it back. Clearing format or changing to text converts it to a 5 digit number.
The only way I have found to get it to work properly thus far is to open a blank sheet and import data and setting the column to text prior to import.
I would like to find a way of opening the CSV file without all the extra steps. Is there a setting that can be turned off?
I'm hoping someone can stop me going crazy with what should be something very simple. To make things easier at the end of my code, all I'd like to do is bring up the SaveAs dialog box and have it default to a specific directory so that the user doesn't have to click through the mountain of various files and folders we have.
I am new to doing advanced stop with pivot tables. I know how to make one to do very basic things but I have since learned you can add your own calculated fields. I have a list of data that has a line of record for each different day of sales which each guest. There is a lot of information on the sheet but the columns that matter are as follows:
ColB= Trips(this field is the same value for each record of the same customer and represents the total number of trips the Cust has) on a side note this field can be removed if it would be easier to just do a count of custid as those are the same thing
ColC= Months(this field is the same value for each record of the same customer and represents the total number of different months the cust made a purchase)
I can use a pivot table to show me the total amount spent by Cust real easy. But I would like to add in the two other fields Average per trip and average per month by cust. Is this something that can be done in a calculated field?
I use Excel 07. I know I can run formulas to get the answer I want however due to the shear volume of records being over a million(I know we should use access at this point but the company does not want to) the time it takes the formulas to calculate freezes my computer(need a serious upgrade).
I use Excel mainly for creating & updating simple logs, and the problem I keep running into is that when I click in a cell, it will automically select & highlight multiple cells below the one I am trying to work in. It will select anywhere from 4-5 cells up to 13. I don't know what this function is, and I don't know how to fix it. But it makes it very difficult to navigate and cut/paste or change a formula.
I have conditional formatting set up so that the cell becomes highlighted if it contains a specific text.
Example of wanted conditional formatting:
Conditional formatting rules manager Rule
Stop if true
For some reason this formatting is inherited by another adjacent cell as we continue to input information.
Column M is formatted so if 'AP' is placed in any cell in that column the cell fills pink. As more information is inputted into the sheet, the conditional formatting copies to Column N. It does not happen with every entry and I have not been able to isolate the specific steps to recreate the copying. Multiple people use the same sheet and fill it out and needed.
After working with the sheet changes are made to the "applies to" column without people meaning to.

I would like to make this formatting so that is only applies to the Column M and not "travel" to other cells of the sheet.
Moving between different sheets changes the procedure window, which is a good thing, but can also can be error prone and annoying to search through several windows searching for the procedure or module currently working on. Is there a setting somewhere to prevent VBE from changing the current procedure window?
I am having a problem updating a jpg file in an existing Excel file which I created. There is a LOGO in the right hand side Header block which I can delete ( the words &(Picture) appear after the logo is deleted. For some reaon I cannot replace this LOGO with a newer version. The new LOGO appears in the body text area, bot it will not drag into the header. I must have missed something very basic!!
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.
In my worksheet i use a macro to produce my results which runs perfect.
Later i copied my range and pasted as picture link in another sheet.Since then the macro takes a long time to run. I suppose while running the macro xl continuously updates the picture slowing the macro.
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!
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.
I work with several dates in Excel 2007. What forumula can I put in a blank cell that would change the below "Start Date" to 3/1/12 if the date displayed is less than 3/1/12? Also, if a cell in the "Start Date" column is blank, how can I populate a blank cell with a specified date value such as 3/31/12?
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.
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.
I have one worksheet. I am needing to match up column G cells (TELCEL/MULTI) with value on E3 and with value E4 and give consecutive numbers on column F depending if the matched column G with value on E3/E4 is on same date of column L and if column Q (Tipo de movimiento) appers "Ventas"; I have plenty blankcells and other values on column G.
column E # DE EVENTO COMPANIA INICIO MES Clave del producto Descripcion Fecha del movimiento Clave de la tienda Clave de la caja Clave del usuario Clave del vendedor Tipo de movimiento
I have to put 1 to first and then sum one if condition is true 1 TELCEL TAT may TAT31 Telcel, Telcel tiempo aire $31 01/05/2014 01 01 3
I have column "A" a list of my PDF filenames and File path in Column "B". I want to establish hyperlinks for each of these PDF filenames (column A) and link it with the file path that I generated in Column B.
=HYPERLINK(B1,A1) did it very well, but unfortunately when converting to PDF, the hyperlink is not working, and I believe the conversion retained is only in text, so now my only resort is hardcoding it by VBA.
I am struggling with trying to create a Top 10 list in Excel 2007. I have googled and search the forum but could not find a solution. (Aplogies if i have overlooked a thread)
I have attached an example of my problem.
1. In Column F i would like to extract the names of the Top 10 performers, based on their respective score. Hence, based on the scoring in Column D, Column F should extract the Top 10 performer names from column A.
2. In Column G, same as above, but bottom 10 names
3. From the attachment, you will view some names are highlighted. I.e. Gary & Neil, and Ian & Michael. These are highlighted based on the fact that they have equal scores.
When extracting the Top / Bottom 10 list, i would like to rank the performers with same score differently. e.g. Gary & Neil, both scored 0%, hence they are equal. But in the Top 10 list, i would like to rank Gary higher as his absolute target is higher. (63 vs. 27) . Same applies to Ian & Michael, Michael should rank higher in the Bottom 10 List as his absolute target is higher.
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.
