Excel 2010 :: Hyperlinks Not Working When Spreadsheet Moved
Oct 17, 2013
Using MS Excel 2010.
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).
Hyperlinks are used to navigate internally throughout the workbook on a menu page and back. The hyperlinks started acting up after i saved to xlsm. Have since saved it back to xlsx but now the hyperlinks randomly disapper despite re-adding them over and over again.
I'm creating a database that contains a columns of hyperlinks and background color.
I've created code on Excel 2010 with advanced filters to copy selected rows to another worksheet. The extract works fine and those cells with hyperlinks and various color codes from the original database "appear" to have been extracted correctly.
However, a closer look shows the hyperlinks on the target worksheet are just blue underlined texts...with the links no longer working. Is there a way for me to correct this?
In Excel 2007, Hyperlinks in cells pointing to jpg files in a subfolder display with internet explorer. On my WinXP/Intnernet Explorer 8/Office 2007 system these links work fine.
When sending the excel and jpg files to another person with Win7/Office 10, jpg hyperlinks work and launch Internet Explorer but come up blank. (Hyperlinks to PDF files work fine and show up in Acrobat, just the jpg's come up blank in Explorer.)
Questions: What is causing this, a setting in Explorer/Win7 or Excel? Can I change Excel hyperlink default software to use something other than Explorer to display the jpg files?
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 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 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'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.
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 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#
The following is a simplified example of my problem: I have a list of product item numbers in column A. Next to each item number in column B, is a hyperlink to a PDF file relevant to each item. Elsewhere in the sheet, is a drop down box containing the item numbers. Next to the drop down box is a HYPERLINK(VLOOKUP) that fetches the relevant hyperlink depending upon the selected item in the drop down box. Problem is, when I select the ‘lookup’ link, I get an error message ‘cannot open the specified file’ (the original Hyperlink works fine). Does anyone have a solution to this problem (preferably without resorting to Visual Basic?
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'm have Excel 2010 and Windows XP. Each week I get 3 spreadsheets and each has data unique to it. Each spreadsheet has a week number column which is common to all three. I want to combine the three worksheets into one and make create several dynamic charts for management. How should I organize a large spreadsheet? In addition to my week number I have a host of other date fields. Some of the data I get is (1) vehicle VIN numbers (2) City/State/Country (3a) I break up the VIN to give me vehicle type (3b) year of assembly (3c) car type (3d) number of doors (4) mileage (5) complaint (7) defect code etc. etc. What are the do's and don't when setting up a large spreadsheet? I have data by week which goes back to 2006 and so my date fields go top-down. I inherited the three spreadsheets and would like everything under one roof, so to speak. One spreadsheet which I can make my charts.
I have a system running Windows 7 Professional (32 bit) and MS Office 2010.
In Excel 2010, I have a spreadsheet that contains several hundred rows of data. When I cut and paste a section of data, Excel jumps to the top of the spreadsheet. This does not happen when I copy/paste, just cut/paste.
Open a brand new spreadsheet whether the format is set to "General" or "Text" it will not let me enter numbers. For example, when I enter 2007 in the cell it displays 20 07 not really that big of space between the two zeros - but still a space. I can't format this no matter what I do.
