Im using Excel 2010 and have a data connection that I want to use. I added it to a regular workbook and it updates perfectly as-designed. However, I need this feature to work in a shared workbook, but it doesn't.
I am using Excel 2010. I am using a shared workbook that was originally created in Excel 2003. This workbook has a command button that is supposed to be clicked to open a userform. However, I cannot even click on the button when opening the shared form in Excel 2010. When the form is not shared, the button works fine.
I have no problems with the button when opening the shared form in 2003 or 2007.
Is there anything I can do to make the command button work while the form is shared and while using Excel 2010?
I've created a spreadsheet at work that has two summary tabs which contain hyperlinks to around 30 separate sheet tabs.
On each sheet tab there is a list of unique values in column A (and other information relating to each value in columns B to D which are repeated for more than one unique value). In column E, users enter a test script name against each unique value they wish to 'reserve', and the macro picks out the unique test script names and via the COUNTIF formula counts the frequency of each test script name for each of the different values in column B.
My problem is that the macro seems to work fine if the workbook is not shared, but errors if the workbook is saved as shared. The error is 'Run time error 1004 - Unable to select the MergeCells property of the Range class'.
Here is the macro code:
Sub Get_Policies_Per_Script(updCol As Long, ShtName As String) Dim rowctr As Long Dim tgtrow As Long
Const ppsformula As String = "=COUNTIFS($A$3:$A$65000,I$24,$E$3:$E$65000,$G"
If updCol = 5 Then 'test name column has been modified
I currently have a password secured excel file on my departs Q drive, which everyone can access unfortunately only 1 person can edit at a time. I tried to turn it into a workbook so we could all edit it at the same time but now some of the other users can't access the file at our other buildings throughout the county. This is for excel 2010. And I did select the share workbook, and allow multiple users to edit box. everything else is unchanged.
With Excel 2010 a yellow warning bar is shown when opening a file with data connection. I don't want to show this warning to other users who will be opening the file, especially when they won't be able to update anything since the original data is on my computer. The logical way would be to remove or disable the connections before sending the file out. But when removing the data connections through Connection window all the pivot tables are converted to static tables, which is not acceptable. Is there any other solution to this? Maybe use a macro?
PS: I know that these warnings can be turned off though Trust Center, but I am not interested in changing these settings for other users.
I have a sheet that contains a Microsoft Query (SQL) data connection. In cell C3, I have the month name and I also have a year cell (C4), which contains just the year based on what the current month (=YEAR(TODAY())) is.
For this example let's use May (C3) and 2013 (C4)
C3 and C4 are used as parameters for the SQL query, so if I change the month to January and the Year to 2010, data is refreshed to bring in that data.
I then want to add 11 more sheets (12 total), so each sheet is a month. The value in cell C3 on each sheet will be the month name.
If I just copy this sheet 11 times, Excel adds 11 extra data connections; 1 for each sheet. As the query in each sheet needs to be exactly the same, I don't want this. I want the 12 sheets to use the same data connection, only with the specified parameters at the sheet level.
Otherwise, if I need to add or remove a column, or change a column name, rather than just doing it once, I'd have to do it 12 times.
This can't be right, surely, as that would be the most ridiculous design flaw I've ever seen in a piece of software. How can having the same query 12 times be a good thing?
I'm a bit concerned that googling 'excel data connections multiple sheets' always wants to be 'excel multiple data connections one sheet' - I want 'excel multiple sheets one data connection'
I created a slick little excel sheet with the data coming in automatically via Access query. It has been working fine for months. Now all of the sudden there are a bunch of cells with missing data. The weird part is it's not as if whole columns are missing data, more like 90% missing. When I go to Access and run the query all cells are populated as the should be. There have been no changes to the query at all during this time.
I'm trying to build a workbook (2007) with multiple worksheets where each worksheet corresponds to a different query/dataset pulling data from the one database.
I would have expected that you could define the one data connection object and then specify the SQL that each worksheet table will invoke. The apparent structure of having the query coupled to the connection object is confounding me. I'm therefore trying to set up a separate connection for each of the worksheets and Excel is getting tied up in knots.
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
With VBA in Excel 2010 I am connecting to a SQL server by using ODBC.
This is a two part process:
Part one:I have created a connection string that gets me the following data: A, B, C, D, E from sheet tpoPurchOrder Where B is equal to "1" And Where C is equal to a changing field under Sheets("Macros").Range("B2")
Here is part one
Sub Part1() Sheets("Open PO by Vendor").Select Sheets("Open PO by Vendor").Cells.Clear With ActiveSheet.ListObjects.Add(SourceType:=0, Source:= _ "ODBC;DSN=Connection;Description=Description;UID=USER;PWD=PASSWORD;APP=Microsoft Office 2010;WSID=Workstation;DATABASE=Database" _ , Destination:=Range("$A$1")).QueryTable
Part one works perfectly.
Part two is where I have problems.Part two is a little different because I have the same connection, but what changes is the table that I am looking at "tpoPOLine" instead of "tpoPurchOrder" and the where is now going to have a variable number of commands.
I want part two to be depend on part one. Under part one I want the result from column E to be a where statement in part two.
In particular: *E3 from Part 1*, etc.
Code: "SELECT tpoPOLine.Status, tpoPOLine.POKey, tpoPOLine.ItemKey, tpoPOLine.POLineNo, tpoPOLine.UnitCost, tpoPOLine.ExtAmt" & Chr(13) & "" & Chr(10) & "FROM mas500_DII_app.dbo.tpoPOLine tpoPOLine" & Chr(13) & "" & Chr(10) & "WHERE (tpoPOLine.POKey=*E2 from Part 1*) OR (" _ , _ "tpoPOLine.POKey=*E3 from Part 1* ) OR (tpoPOLine.POKey=*E4 from Part 1*)" & Chr(13) & "" & Chr(10) & "ORDER BY tpoPOLine.POKey" _ )
Now my problem is that sometimes the E column from part one ends up being 1 row, sometimes it ends up being 50 rows. I would like the code to change accordingly.
1. Pull everything from the SQL server filter once in excel. This is not as efficient as the database has ~300,000 rows in the tpoPOline table and would take a lot longer then needed.
2. Create a nested if table and
Code: WHERE (tpoPOLine.POKey=*E2 from Part 1*) OR (tpoPOLine.POKey=*E3 from Part 1* ) OR (tpoPOLine.POKey=*E4 from Part 1*)"
to the value of that nested if table
The nested if table would be something like =if(isblank(E2),"E1",if(isblank(E3)... etc for ~50 rows. I know the syntax is incorrect but you get my point.
3. Rerun the query for each value in column E. That would require the connection to happen ~50 times which would not be that great, as well as I would have to copy and paste the data after each run as the tables cannot overlap.
What I am looking for is a way to run this only once, on one sheet, without writing a nested if table with 50 if's.
Now, when it starts, I have a popup form asking for password for access for it. The problem is that for one person - AND ONLY THAT PERSON - the VBA Editor window opens and she has to press the "Play" button for it to hide and be able to enter the password to access the application.
The editor is not showing on any other computer. All computers are running Excel 2010.
I am using excel 2002 and I have found that when the workbook is shared and getting 2 or more users to open the workbook around the same time brings up a read only type prompt box for the 2nd ( and 3rd) user when the book hasn't fully opened for the 1st user/is still fully opening. Is this a limitation within excel or is there a way around this for example via vb code.
I know the more data a workbook has can cause it open a lot slower but is this the same for shared mode.
I am simply trying to have some code that would allow me to run relatively simple SQL Queries on Excel Data. This data however will be in a table format within Excel and I will only be needing to query on table at a time; meaning that I don't need relational database features or SQL Joins at all. At most, the SQL Statements will involve WHERE and SORT statements. So, my method is relatively simple:
1. Select an Excel Range (The table being Queried) 2. Provide an SQL Statement 3. Provide an Output range to print the results
After my recent research, I concluded that ODBC/ADODB was the best route. I am very new to ODBC Connections though. Basically, I just set up an ODBC Connection and DataSource using the Control Panel/Administrative Tools. After that, following some templates of others I constructed the following Sub getData(SQL As String, outRange As Range) Dim conn As Variant Dim rs As Variant Dim cs As String Dim outCell As Range Set outCell = outRange.Range("a1") Dim row As Integer Dim col As Integer
Set conn = CreateObject("adodb.connection") Set rs = CreateObject("adodb.recordset")
I have a file that has an original file format .xls
I saved as .xlsx (I am using Excel 2007) with a different name so I could make changes to the new file without changing the original.
That turn off compatibility mode.... but it is still "shared". While it is shared I cannot delete a sheet. In fact, I really don't even want it to be shared. If the file is open, and someone else opens it, I want it to open as "read only". I cannot uncheck the "Allow changes by more than one user at the same time. This also allows workbook merging." checkbox because it is greyed out.
We have a Shared workbook on our Server and about 5 users work at the same time every day. I want to understand something, If I open it I can see all the information in it, all the rows and so on, but if the same workbook is opened by another user he will see other information, the rows aren't the same as in my case. Why does this happen ? I would like the second users to see the same information as I do.
ActiveX control? (=EMBED("Forms.ComboBox.1","") They are filled using named ranges on another worksheet and work fine. The problem happens when I share the workbook the combo boxes become completely non-functional. They don't even drop down when clicked.
I've added some code the adds a button to a worksheet
Public Sub AddSheetPrintButton() Dim btn As Button Dim t As Range Set t = ActiveSheet.Range(Cells(1, 6), Cells(1, 7)) ' button position Set btn = ActiveSheet.Buttons.Add(t.Left, t.Top, t.Width, t.Height) With btn .OnAction = "sheetPrint" .Caption = "Print Sheet" .Name = "Print" .Font.ColorIndex = 10 End With End Sub
The other day I inserted a row in a shared workbook and then saved it. On my screen, the inserted row was visible and was the correct row height of 12.75. My goal was to insert the row so another user sitting next to me could enter information in the new row.
After I saved the workbook, and after the user sitting next to me saved her workbook, the row I inserted should have appeared exactly the same on her screen, but it did not. Instead, the inserted row showed up as a hidden row on her screen. It was there, but the row height was collapsed to the point of invisibility.
I repeated my attempt to insert a row which the other user could edit several times, but each time I got the same result. I could not make the row show up on her screen with a row height of 12.75.
i have an excel database regarding about 1000 different schemes having the details of their initiation date, budget allocated , up to date expenditure, this month expenditure and many others too. this is a shared workbook and relevant officers enter their data in their relevant columns and rows. the file is shared. now i want that any changes done by mr. A, for eg. at record No. 09 could be intimated to Mr. B who is working at record No. 560. may be via msg box or any other source.
I've created a connection which draws information from an access table to excel. The issue is that any numbers (they are ratings from 1-10) that come from access are shown in excel 1 number higher than the correct data that is in access (i.e 10 is shown as 11, 9 as 10, etc). I've looked all over the forum as well as google and can't find any information on how to correct this.
I am running a macro-enabled Excel 2010 file, and there is a link to another workbook that pops up every time I open it asking if I want to update. I have searched formulas and pages, and can't find where it's linking from. I searched the VBA module I've been working in, and I can't find the link. When I click Data->Edit Links->Break Links and confirm, nothing happens. It still shows up as linked, and still prompts me to update next time I open it. I'd really like to get this data link severed.
I am using Excel 2010. I am digging through a workbook with 80-some worksheets. There is one worksheet with 11 data tables. When the workbook refreshes, there is a note at the bottom saying something about 21 data tables. I am not sure where the other 10 are. In an online post, someone said that the Name Manager should show them. But in Name Manager, when I filter on Tables, the list goes blank, and all the icons are the same for the other named ranges. Is there another way to find the data tables?
I have two workbooks I am using. Essentially I am copying values out of one workbook, opening a second workbook, manipulating data and pasting it. Everything is working great but one issue! The first workbook has named ranges in it that I don't want in the second workbook (just values). I don't want them because when I try this operation the second time it asks if I want to use the same name or choose a different name. For some reason it is still copying over all the named ranges (all 343 of them!). Is there a way to not allow it to do that or simply just delete the names before I close the second workbook?
I got a master format in xl2010 to collect data, which is being circulated between my team. members fill in their respective data n mail back the file with their name attached to file name. i want to creat a macro which can copy the data from every members file to master file.
I've about 10 pivot tables in Excel that are populated via an External Query link to Access. In each case I have pre-written views with all the columns I need so that the query can just pick them up. Nine of the ten queries work perfectly, but one doesn't - reporting "Too Few Parameters - Expected 1" when I try and click on the "Return Data to Excel" in the import wizard.
I can see the column headers in Excel to select; so I'm assuming that it can parse the SQL but no results are being returned. Just to confirm though - results are returned (>8000 of them) in Access.
SQL code below:
Code: SELECT z.pathdurationhours AS PathHours, Count(z.pathdurationhours) AS Paths, Count(z.pathdurationhours)/(select count(*) from (select [activity date], [conversion ID], count(*) from tbl_dfa_p2cdata group by [activity date], [conversion ID]) ) AS PCT FROM (SELECT a.[activity date], a.[conversion ID], val( max(a.[interaction time])-min(a.[interaction time]) ) *24 AS PathDurationHours FROM tbl_dfa_P2CData AS a WHERE a.[interaction time] "" GROUP BY a.[activity date], a.[conversion ID]) AS z GROUP BY z.pathdurationhours;
I'm trying to create a macro that will look at each worksheet in a workbook and then delete the last line of data on each worksheet. The last row can vary on each worksheet. This is what I have come up with but it is not working. I am on Excel 2010 and Windows 7.
I open a spreadsheet or workbook that has links to other workbooks I am notified by the message bar that content has been blocked. I click Options > Enable this content > OK. Even if I don't make any changes I'm prompted to save changes when I close the file. If I hit Yes or if I hit No, I will still be prompted to enable content in the message bar the next time I open the same file.
I have changed the External Content settings in the Trust Center to "Enable all data connections (not recommended)" and "Enable automatic update for all workbook links (not recommended)" but I still get the messages.
My Message Bar is set to "Show the message bar in all applications when content is blocked" because I read on Microsoft KB that the other option of "never show information about blocked content" will still block the content, just not tell you about it, which doesn't fix my issue.
The files I'm opening and the files linked to and from them are all on the same shared drive on a file server in the office. Is there a way to tell Office '07 that our file drive is a trusted source by default?
I have never really used VBA and so am completely stuck at this problem. I need to create a macro which auto-populates a master worksheet from the individual user sheets in a shared workbook. Sheet 1 is the master sheet "Team Stats". There will be an undetermined number of individual worksheets to accomodate new staff. Each worksheet will be identical, using columns A-I with row 1 having the headings:
Date, Name, Reference, Value, Price, Age, Purchased?, Destination, Add. Products (the last 3 columns will have a drop-down list which will be used to enter data into the cell). There will be a varying number of rows in each of the individual sheets. If possible I would like the macro to run every time data is entered into one of the individual worksheets. If this is not then it would be fien to update every time the workbook is opened.
i have two workbooks that use a identical worksheet which is called products (this sheet contains rows of over 19000 products ). The problem is i cannot merge the two workbooks together because they are just too big in size.
Also these workbooks have similar userforms and macros that rely on this product databases (worksheets).
My problem is when i add a new product to of one product databases i have to also add it to the second product database again. Is there a way where i can update both worksheets together without opening both workbooks.
I have three userforms that rely on this worksheet from both workbooks:
frmNewProduct - To add a new product to the worksheet.
frmProductUpdate - To edit, replace or delete products in the worksheet.
frmSearch - To search for products inside the worksheet.
I have also got other define names, worksheets and formulas that rely on these product database worksheets.
