I hope I can explain what I am trying to accomplish properly. Many years ago (5+), I had this exact workbook setup, but am having a lot of difficulty remembering VB & Excel and making this again from scratch.
I am looking to create an Excel Workbook. The workbook will contain numerous tabs, each tab will essentially be a template, and contain basic formulas.
On tab 1(Sheet1), I would like to have a listbox. The individual items in the listbox, should have the same name of, and be linked to all tabs in the workbook.
There will also be three buttons.
Button1 - Generates the names in the listbox based on existing tabs within the workbook Button2 - Opens a new workbook, and copies over the selected tabs (AKA - creates a working copy of the workbook) Button3 - Clears the selection and resets the listbox.
The number of tabs, and contents of tabs, within the workbook will be changing. So the listbox should know to look for all tabs, be it 5, or 50.
The end result would allow someone, who knows nothing of Excel, to open this workbook, as a read-only file. Generate a list of available tabs, select the tabs they need, generate a new workbook containing these tabs, that they can then edit to suit their needs.
In my line of work (and I am sure everyones) there is a huge problem with consistancy. This leads to a snowball effect of problems carrying over, and being copied from one project to the next. As I mentioned earler, I once already had this workbook setup, and it solved all our consistancy problems. I am hoping to do the same.
I have just started using Excel 2007 after many years with 2003 and I must say that the new one is totally amazing except for one thing and Im sure there is an easy answer to this although the HELP was NO HELP
One the sheet I am working on I hide the sheet tabs through 2003 and now I see there is no options to unhide them. How do I do this.
I am using excel 2007. My workbook contains a tab with several buttons with hyperlinks to corresponding other tabs in the workbook. The hyperlink works fine when the tabs are visible, but do not work when I hide the tabs.
Is there a way use hyperlinks on tabs that are hidden?
I have excel 2007, I have a spread sheet with approx 80 worksheets. The document grew over the year of 2010 and is not in alphabetical order. I am starting this new year wanting to have the tabs in alphabetical order. I looked in the DATA sort option...but looks like its is worksheet specific. How to make the tabs sort in alphabetical order...
What I'm tying to achive is to compare data on two worksheets called "Old" and "New" and to populate the difference on another worksheet called "Diff" see attached file where I have manually added the differences onto the "Diff" tab.
I am using Excel 2007. When I pulled up a workbook today with 3 sheets in it, all that comes up is the first sheet and the sheet tabs at the bottom of the screen are no longer there. I must have accidentlly pushed some button, but I can't get to the other sheets. I really need the information on the other sheets. How do I restore the view that shows the sheet numbers at the bottom?
I need to create a formula using 2 different tabs within an excel workbook. I need to search column A on the first tab and column A on the second tab and if they match I need to compare column F on the first tab to column F on the second tab. (This column contains my staff names but the problem I am running into is on the first tab their names are listed first name last name and on the second tab they are listed last name, first name). If column A and F match I need to search column H on the first tab to column H on the second tab. If all columns match up to this point I need to take the data in column Q on the second tab and in put it into column K on the first tab. Is this even possible?
I have to prepare a monthly presentation for my company. I have all financial data in multiple tabs in excel that have been linked to many powerpoint slides.
The problem is, I update the same excel sheet every month and save it with a different name. How can I change the source in powerpoint to select and update all the slides with all the corresponding tabs.
At present, I use Edit link (ALT+E+K) > Select each slide on the powerpoint> Change source to new excelfile. When I select all the sheets, the "change source" greys out. Hence I have to do it individually.
I have a summary page that includes the titles for each tab within the excel 2003 workbook. I want to use the names of the tabs in the summary page and create it into a formula to lookup fixed cells within the various tabs. Sorry for not uploading an excel doc but I was at work earlier and the thread did not load for some reason, so I am reposting it.
I am creating a spreadsheet in Microsoft Excel 2007 which holds information about the airline Emirates which I have created using information from the internet. I am currently creating a sheet which has all their flights in and holds information about the departure time and arrival time of the flight and the type of aircraft ect. I am wondering if there is anyway in being able to have the cell which has the flight number in to change colour (Green or Red) if the flight is in the air or not by using the departure and arrival times already set on the sheet. I am wondering if you possibly need to have a live time on the sheet so that it can work with that .....
What would be the quickest and most efficient way of doing the following:
Sheet 1: clicking once, twice, three times in the following cells to change the fill to Red, Yellow, Green respectively (in Row 22, COLUMNS E H K N Q T W Z AD AG) and mirrorring this format/fill on:
Sheet 2: , mirror the selected fill on sheet1 in E22, H22 , K22 in in E3:N3 respectively example E22 (sheet1) is mirrored now in E3 (sheet 2); H22 (sheet 1) is mirrored in F3 (sheet2) etc etc.
I have 35 tabs formatted in the same way - each tab, as with Sheet 1 is linked to a different row on sheet 2 in the same range as is sheet 1 and would need to replicate the mirorring on Sheet 1 to each of the other 34 tabs.
What I need to do is work out the cost of call 1, to work out the call cost you will times the duration by the cost of the call on the charging codes tab. So if E2 = uk Mobile 02 (fm1) then search for a match in charging codes tab column B then get the cost from column C and times that by the duration on CDRS test tab column D
the cost amount needs to be in column I
a different explanation below..
if CELL e2 matches a column in charging codes tab column B then get the amount of cost from charging codes tab column C and times it by cdrs tab CELL d2 and return the result in CELL I2
I work for a UK charity and have a list of funders in an Excel 2007 spreadsheet.
One of the columns refers to the date on which a new application for funding can be made to that particular funder.
In many cases new applications for funding can't be made for 1 or more years since the last application - sometimes as many as 5 years later. How to get a cell to refer to the date that it contains.
For example, say I have in cell A1 "The Acme Funding Organisation" and in cell B1 (i.e. the "Reapply when?" column) a date of 01/04/2013 (British date format, i.e. 1 April 2013) then what I want Excel to do is to look at the date in cell B1 and if that date has been reached to highlight the cell red. That way I'll know that the reapply date has been reached & that a new application can be made.
I have a workbook that pulls in data from other sources and contains 15 linked sheets. The data changes when different criteria is selected in the first sheet. The first 2 sheets are summary sheets and the tabs are named correctly.
I would like to be able to rename the remaining 13 tabs using labels found in the cells in the first sheet. These tabs should update or change when the first sheet is manually recalculated (F9).
I have used ActiveSheet.Name=Range("A1") but it doesn't apply in this case. Is there a macro that could run with something like Sheet1.Name=Range("A1"), Sheet2.Name=Range("A2"), Sheet3.Name=Range("A3"), etc.... or maybe something in each sheet that would change the name of the tab to a specific name off sheet 1 when the whole workbook is recalculated?
I have to prepare files of over 100 tabs in each. I have a list of numbers on a spreadsheet that must be entered on each tab. Am I making myself clear because I tried to do it manually and it's no joke?
I have a program that takes a templete, copies it, fills in some information and then renames the tab based on text in a cell on that sheet. The code loops so I end up with about ten tabs that are created from the Template.
I want to move these newly created tabs to a new Workbook.
is there a way (code) that will move all the tabs except ones delineated in the code - like the tab named "Template"?
Is there any way to arrange the tab easily instead of move back and forth and drag? I have a work book with 50 tabs and if I like to arrange it, I have to move the cursor pointer zillions time and than find and drag the right tab at the right place. Is there any easir way? Like you do in power point?
I have a workbook with a list of names of up to 15 people in each of 5 rows. Each row then populates a row in a separate workbook with those names. Each person is identified by a number and each person then has their own worksheet in that workbook.
Is it possible in some way to auto-name the tab for each worksheet from the number in the name cell?
I have created a Hlookup to read a workbook that has several tabs. How do I write the formula to read every tab. So if my tabs are labelled like this... FY 2012, FY 2012-2, FY 2012-3 - each spreadsheet is formatted the same, same number of rows and columns but I need the formula to look on every sheet and then bring back the information.
I have a workbook with 5 or more tabs. One of the tabs is a CONSOLIDATION of all the tabs put together. I have columns on the consolidation tab with the names of the individual tabs. To the left of these columns is a list of general ledger numbers with their respective names. For example:
East West NE South 6103256 –sales 6540000 -salary 510000-travel
I want a excel to look at the individual tabs, for this specific gl number and name and, if applicable, return a value. What formula would do this?
My columns are not showing up correctly. East,West etc are the columns. 6103256 - are the rows
