I have a filter on the Qty column but when I sort Z -A or A - Z it does not work. I have tried formatting as number but no success, I have never seen this before, why the sort wont work? I am using Excel 2010 in Win 7
I have a pivot table that I want to update via VBA based on dates user inputs on an input tab. (Want to use the Between function)
The Date field is in the Report Filter section (as I don't want it in the row or column area), but when I click on the dropdown arrow, I don't get any option to filter the date at all. I've double checked that the dates in my datasource are formatted for a pivot table, but that doesn't seem to be the issue.
When I use code I've found on this and other sites, it also doesn't work. When I run it, I get the following error at the "If Date DateValue(PI.Name) < StartDate Or DateValue(PI.Name) > EndDate Then..." line
Error Message: Unable to set the Visable Property of the Pivot Item Class
Code: Sub Test() Const StartDate As Date = #1/15/2013# Const EndDate As Date = #2/13/2013#
I have a lot of data to filter / sort. I want to initially to create a filter for a column of data - which has the format similar to hierarchical paths to files. The data is a mix of text/numbers. e.g.
Doing an alphabetical sort of this date would return the following order. As you can see while each strings in unique - there are many instances where they are simialr - if you ignore the unique numeric values at the end of the string.
So what I want to do is to create a filter for the strings - but ignoring the numeric bits at the end i.e.
The strings are obviiously of varying length and the number of hierarchical paths is different, so I can't split string on "/".
Similarly folder paths names can contain "_" so can't split string on this either.
As I don't know how many "/" or "-" instances there will be in the string I don't believe I can use the find function. Also as the amount of number will be different i don't think I can use =right(a1,X) either.
I may be able to search for the pattern above - as this is probabay unique - so maybe it's something like the following pseudo code:
Function GetString(txt As String) As String With CreateObject("VBScript.RegExp") .Pattern = "reg_d+(_)+d+//d" GetString = .execute(txt)(0) End With End Function
If I do require VBA code - how do I then use this for creating a column filter? Or will I have to extract the filtered data first from the column (and its associated row data) into another worksheet to use?
Once I have the filter in place I want to create tables using the filtered data - so for example each column value above has a lot of associated data values in each row e.g
Column 3 is just a ranking from 1-30. So I select all the data in columns 1 and 2 and hit sort from largest to smallest and it looks like excel computes, but nothing changes and it doesn't sort from largest to smallest? A
I've got a spread sheet at work that is shared between 4 people. It's password protected and its been protected so only four of us can edit it. It was working fine until yesterday for no reason the auto filter stopped working. The drop down arrows are still there but nothing happens when you click on them?
The sheet was made on excel 2003 but one of the users uses the newer excel which we will all eventually get.
I am using Excel 2010. The template only has 5 working days in it, but I need to set 6 working days (Saturday is also working day). Wondering, how to get this working without spoiling the functions. Also the date format is in US , need to change to UK without disrupting the Formula/Functions.
In Excel 2010, I can manually enter the GetPivotData function (and it works), but with Generate GetPivotData selected / enabled (in PivotTable Tools --> Options --> PivotTable --> Options), the GetPivotData function isn't automatically generated.
I copied (with 'Paste Link') rows from a master Excel file to a file that performs calculations. This file (and many others like it) need to be modifed by other people. My tester has informed me that the data is not updating between the files for her, although it does work for me.
When I check 'Data->Edit Links' it shows the status of the file as 'unknown'. If I click 'Check status' it is then OK, but the next time I look at it, it has reverted to 'unknown'.
1. How do I get the status to remain at OK?
2. Why do the links work for me, but not for my end users?
I have a macro to collate data from multiple workbooks to a single sheet. The folder path to the source files can be chosen thorugh the macro. It runs perfectly in my system running on Windows XP. But it doesnt run on Wondows 7 system. Both are using MS Excel 2010. In Windows 7 system, while choosing the folder path where source files are located, it says "No items match your search" (screenshot attached). I would want the macro modified so that it runs on any platform. The macros that I'm using is given below:
I have a workbook with multiple tabs that I update every other month with current data. I have one tab for data that I clear each time and copy the updated info into. (That info is copied from another excel spreadsheet, by the way.) On the second tab I have sumifs formulas set up to pull in certain data from the data tab. This setup has worked perfectly until today. I copied my data into the one tab but could not get the formulas to calculate. It looks like the formulas aren't picking up the data. I've checked to make sure the formulas are calculating automatically. I've retyped the formula. I've replaced the =. I tried naming the ranges I wanted the data to be picked up from. I've tried changing the format of the data - general, text, numbers, etc. I'm working in excel 2010
I have a list of 30 words that I am filtering a column of sentences for. If I put the list of 30 in column A and the list of 10,000 sentences in column B, is there a formula that will identify the cells with sentences that contain a word from column A?
I'm using Excel 2010. When I go into the Excel Options, to the Save option and try to type in a specific network drive in the Default File Location: box, I click OK and then it doesn't save the changes. I close Excel down all the way and then restart a new Excel session and it keeps going back to "LibrariesDocuments..."
It doesn't seem to be just related to Excel...having the same issue in Word and Access 2010 as well.
As I understand it hyperlinks set in a spreadsheet should work regardless of where you save and/or copy the spreadsheet i.e. as long as the directory location of the location / file the hyperlink is referencing doesn't change (notwithstanding, the user must have appropriate access rights to the relevant directory locations)
However, the situation I have is the spreadsheet was generated and saved to directory location A (intention being this would be the 'master' yearly template) and the hyperlinks set, all of which work when you open the spreadsheet in this directory location. But when I copy the spreadsheet to directory location B, which is intended to be the yearly 'register' location for the spreadsheet, none of the hyperlinks work? When I hold my cursor over a link in the copied spreadsheet, in directory B, I do not get a 'pop-up' path like I do in directory A and when I click a link I get an error message:
Microsoft Excel The address of this site is not valid. Check the address and try again.
As stated above the documents the hyperlinks relate to have not moved, they remain in the same template directory (i.e. the link path has not altered).
1. Pull data from the internet 2. Perform calculations on the data 3. Graph the calculated values
- As I run the macro, Excel dies in step 3, where I graph the calculated values. - It works about 5% of the time and gives me the "Excel has stopped working" error 95% of the time - I can't isolate any difference in the attempts - I've located the area in the macro where it dies, but I can't identify the exact line since it seems to shift around in this area - It works perfectly fine when I step through using F8 - I've attempted DoEvents and Application.Wait to debug. Application.Wait for 5 seconds allows the macro to work about 50% of the time and increases in efficiency the longer I wait - Steps 1 and 2 work perfectly fine (I've used that code in many macros), so I'm pretty sure the issue is in the below code:
I'm running Windows 7, Office 2010
Code: 'Chart variables Sheets("Summary").Select Dim ChartRange As Range
I am looking for some to create a simple macro to sort multiple rows in ascending order based on the values in a particular column in the selected range. I want to sort A4:AI1004 in ascending order by column D. I recorded the following macro in Excel 2010:
Sub sort() ' ' sort Macro ' sort by column D (Sequence #) ' ' Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlToRight)).Select Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlToRight)).Select Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlToRight)).Select Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlToRight)).Select
First of all, I think this code can probably be simplified. Secondly, it does not work in older versions of Excel. In 2007 it always ends in a runtime error. How can I clean this up so that it will work in both versions of Excel?
I'm trying to add a sorting filter dropdown on some columns in a sheet. If I select the column, then use Data -> Filter, it adds the filter. on that column. But then, if I select another column, the "Filter" button in the tool menu is already selected, even though there is no filter for that column. If I click it, the filter on the other column disappears. Then, clicking it again adds a filter for every single column. It seems I'm not able to select f.ex. 3 different columns and add a filter to only those. It's either all or none. Is this how it's supposed to work?
I have a workbook in Excel2010 with 2 sheets. I have put in a conditional formatting in 27177 cells. After a lot of waiting it finally worked out and the cells that should turn RED, do show correctly. The strange thing is that my "filter by color" stays disabled. This applies both to the columns I've applied the conditional formatting to, as well as any other column that has a colored cell.
The second sheet in the file also have colored cells and there the option works perfectly fine. So it seems to have something to do with the particular sheet.
why the function got disables in the particular worksheet.
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 have 5 worksheets that I currently have to add information to and cut/paste information from one to another. The initial information stays the same but I have to cut and paste it into one of the other worksheets based on wether or not we; need to decide on a job, are working on the job, lost the job, won the job or the job is complete.
I would like to create one master worksheet where the information can be entered with a drop down cell stating the status of the job (listed above). I created the master tab and linked the 5 subordinate tabs using an IF formula, but how can the subordinate tabs filter or sort the references and organize them on the top of the page rather than leaving a bunch of blank rows (because the info in these blank rows went to a different subordinate tab)? I want to enter the info in the master tab and simply change the pull down cell to change which subordinate tab the information shows up on. This should allow me to print the subordinate tabs as reports without having to manually cut and paste the info or filter it, correct?
I am trying to sort each "Pct" column in descending order. Of course, I can do this manually, but I have over 100 to do, so I'd like to know how I can automate this (of course, the two columns to the left of "Pct" must move along with it).
I've only recently began to use excel, but I've really dived deep into it, I'm clueless when it comes to VBA but now I'm stepping into that realm. Anyway, I'm using this code....
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)If Not Intersect(Target, Range("A:A")) Is Nothing Then Application.EnableEvents = False Me.Sort.SortFields.Clear Me.Sort.SortFields.Add Key:=Range("A:A"), SortOn:=xlSortOnValues, Order:=xlAscending, DataOption:=xlSortNormal With Me.Sort

Link: auto-sort for excel 2010.... to auto sort 2 columns of data. However, it is extremely tedious to enter data as it sorts itself every time you enter a new data point. Moreover, using any random number generator to fill the columns takes ages! Is there anyway to make it so the code only runs when the worksheet is refreshed (F9 pressed.)
