Formula Copy & Paste: Reference Other Worksheets Within The Workbook, Are Copied Over As Links
Apr 28, 2007
I'm trying to perform a copy & paste operation by hand which to me should be easy in theory. I have a worksheet whose formulas have been corrupted. I have a backup of this sheet- I'd like to copy the backup sheet into the workbook. The problem is that the formulas, which reference other worksheets within the workbook, are copied over as links to the backup workbook instead of the new workbook they are being copied too. This seems simple, but how do I copy the worksheet and the references without having to go through all of the references by hand to only apply to the local book.
My worksheet "Ledger" has a column of 1-31 days, with row headings of MC/Visa, Amex, Disc & Cash. I also have sheets "1-31" within the same workbook that contain the data I need under each heading. I can get the data for "Amex" in sheet "1" to appear in the first cell underneath "Amex" in the sheet "ledger" by typing the formula ='1'!$B$29.....
My problem is as such; each month I receive an application for payment. This will contain around 20-30 worksheets. However I only need to interrogate around 3-4 specific ones. The worksheets I require contain data describing the plant/equipment a company has purchased, or materials purchased over a period of time. Each month the worksheets are updated with the previous months data appended to the bottom. I am required to established if the equipments have been purchased at the correct rate.
The worksheets are all protected thus in order to interrogate them I am required to copy an paste their contents into a new work book in order to format them and insert my new "assessment" columns. I need to keep the work sheets separate in the new work book as they have different layouts however they have the same layout and work sheet names each month.
I needs a macro which would allow me to open up a new book them copy the specific worksheets from a specific file into the new work book. I then have a separate macro which re-formats them into the layout I require.
I want to write a macro that will copy data from all worksheets of a specified workbook and copy them into a new workbook.
To give some detail, I receive a report each morning containing failed deliveries. I also export a list of failed deliveries from a system (SAP). These reports rarely match so I must compare the two daily. I do this using INDEX and MATCH functions but now my boss wants all the data in a single report so I would like to harness the might of vba to consolodate all the data in one workbook.
The lists of failed deliveries are contained in worksheets marked mon, tue, wed... so I need to search all worksheets for all delivery numbers and copy all of the data into a new book. This becomes complicated because on Monday there is only one tab marked mon, on tuesday there are two (mon & tue), one wednesday there are three and so on.
I have started on some code but I am getting nowhere fast. I have managed to muster an input box which asks for a date (this will be used to search the file path for a file named "failed deliveries & "mm/mm/yyy")
I'd prefer to edit links with the source workbook open, however I receive this error when I do "A formula in this worksheet contains one or more invalid references." I am able to edit links with the source workbook closed but this takes far too much time to be satisfied with that as the solution. I have used vlookup formulas and the index-match method and they both take about the same amount of time to update. I've separated each worksheet and used the "name manager" add-in and have searched all links for any type of error. I feel like I'm missing something. Is there a way to fix this "invalid reference" error so that I can edit my links with the source workbook open?
The situation is that I have created a workbook in a network folder: xprojectsexcelclientAApril umbers
The workbook links to a few other workbooks on the same network, but in the parent folder: xprojectsexcelclientAApril
The problem occurs when my colleagues have to updates the links in the main workbook, because they have not mapped the network drive in the same way as I have. The problem is NOT the prefix, but the fact that they have a more direct link to the network folder. My collages have mapped the folder like: xclientAApril Is there a way where I can make the links in the workbook, so they don't depend on the entire string, but only on the fact that it is in the parent folder?
It's been a long time since I have worked with Excell, it use to be the " $ " that made things absolute or relative.
I have this formula:
='1'!C194+C193 on sheet 1 named "1" without the " ". I need to copy it across 31 sheets. I thought that it was the " ! ", without the " ", that makes the address absolute so I took it out and then attemped to copie it to other sheets. The idea was that the formula would then read: ='2'!C194+C193 on sheet 2, and ='3'!C194+C193 on sheet 3 and so on. The formula is in the exact same location on each sheet, C194. But this won't work. I am at this time doing each formula one at a time. I have many workbooks that will use the same style of copy and paste; about 15 workbooks each with 31 sheets.
It would help if someone could explain how to save time. I do know how to use the Ctrl to select different cells and how to use Ctrl+Page UP/Down to change tabs. I just have to get the formula correct.
I'm trying to find a macro that will copy data from the areas of B120:E179 and I120:K179 for example (linked to another worksheet within the workbook) and special paste (Values Only and skipping blank cells) it to the next available open cell up top where basic data entry will be taking place B10:E29 and I10:K29. I need it to only copy/paste the rows with data (skipping all cells/rows with no data) and once it is finished coping I will need it to place an "X" in column M next to the row that it copied data from. I would also need it to reference the data in each row from B to E and if there is an entry say on B14 to E14 that matches it but if I10 to E29 are blank then paste that information on row 14. If it does not match or if those columns are full then paste on next available line.
I hope I'm making sense here. This is for a vehicle tracking log between checkpoints. Each driver and info will be listed on each row. Columns B through E will contain information for each driver: name, badge, #passengers, and vehicle #. The log lists location, time, and destination for outgoing travelers in columns F to H. Incoming info is listed on Columns I to K............
I am try to copy a worksheet "exactly" from one workbook to another, i.e. all formulas and range names reference the new workbook and not link back to to the workbook they were copied from. The code below brings the formulas and named ranges over still referencing the source workbook: SourceWB.Sheets(sht).Copy after:=TargetWB.Sheets(sht)
I am working with a workbook, which has links pointing to many other workbooks. Many a times, I need to open the source workbook to verify whether the source data is correct. It takes a long time to open the other files and locate the exact cell. Following is an example of the links in the workbook.
Some cells are linked to the sheets in the same workbook. I know that I can use Excel's audit function, but I found that it doesn't work well when the formula referes to other workbooks. Therefore I want to design a macro, which will land me to source cells. The macro needs to analyse the link; open the workbook to which the link refers; and find the correct cell in that workbook. If the link refers to a worksheet in the same workbook, then it should not open that workbook again. I don't know, how to use a link like the one given above, and analyse it using VBA to decide whether it needs to open another workbook.
I have a worksheet. In sheet3 The value of column L2 is the value of column M2 in sheet . Everytime I copy the new sheet, I have to re type the formula for this new sheet. Is there a way to give formual such that when I copy new worksheet the formula will come automatically as it always has to link from the M2 column of the previous sheet?
I do a payroll workbook for my small company. Each sheet inside the workbook is a month. Each sheet totals the monthly labor categories. I would like to keep a "year to date" total on each employee and therefore would have to reference each sheet.
Setting up a formula (or tell me where to look) on how to total worksheets inside a workbook?
Example: the workbook contains a total of 12 sheets, representing the 12 months of the year. Add "cell reference" from sheet 1 to sheet 2 to sheet 3 to reach a total, then when sheet 4 is completed it contains the cumulative totals of all 4 sheets, etc., etc. Where I can look at this "year to date total" and compare to last years "year to date total".
I am currently working on a data analysis project (data mining) and need to collect and later analyze statistics for the inputs which control a series of calculations. These statistics are shown in the Statistics 1, Statistics 2 and Statistics 3 cells in the workbook that I attached. The inputs are X,Y; all possible values for these inputs are listed in the N,O columns. Basically I need a macro which would take the values from these two columns and place them pair after pair into the controlling cells (K3, L3), then it would copy cells H2 through L3 (updated stats) to a new sheet after each copy operation - so that I will finally have a list of statistics for all of the input pairs.
I have the following code that I would like to use to create generic estimates for common jobs that happen all the time.
Sub CREATEESTIMATE() Dim wsEst As Worksheet Dim wsList As Worksheet Dim wsData As Worksheet Dim smallrng As Range Dim destrng As Range Set wsEst = Worksheets("Estimate") Set wsData = Worksheets("Brk-oil-44kv-data") Set wsList = Worksheets("Estimate List") lngMax = wsList.Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row For Each Cell In wsList.Range("F2:F" & lngMax) If Cell.Value = "BR-O-44-RR" Then Sheets("Estimate").Activate.......................
1) When I run the macro the data that needs to be paste under the Station Maintenance rows does not appear. It just pastes the first section (6 rows of 72 rows).
2) The Task # does not renumber automatically - but with the SAME code it renumbers properly for the CMS Task #.
3) Under CMS it copies everything properly except for data that should be in column I - the data is on the data sheet "Brk-oil-44kv-data".
I'd like to copy/paste from different spreadsheets. The place it will be pasted is specific.
Sub Family1() Range("A2").Value Sheets("Black Market").Select Range("C3:C35").Copy Sheets("Profiles").Select Range("B2").PasteSpecial Sheets("Real Estate").Select Range("E3:E30").Copy Sheets("Profiles").PasteSpecial End Sub
I've coded wrong. I get "Run-time error 424: Object required" when I run it.
Dim ws As Worksheet x = 0
For Each ws In Worksheets Select Case UCase(wSheet. Name) Case "SAMPLE RESOLVED", "RESCALLTYPE", "DATA", "SUMMARY" 'Do nothing Case Else ws.Range("J22").Copy Destination:=Sheets("Summary").Range("B2").Offset(x, 0) ws.Range("C3").Copy Destination:=Sheets("Summary").Range("A2").Offset(x, 0) x = x + 1 End Select Next ws
I'm trying to copy range from one worksheet to another. I'm guessing there must be something wrong with my syntax here:
For Count = 2 To 50 If Sheets("sheet1").Range("H" & (Count)) < 0.1 Then Sheets("sheet3").Range("A" & (next_place), "K" & (next_place)) = Sheets("sheet1").Range("A" & (Count), "K" & (Count)) next_place = next_place + 1 End If Next Count
- I have a worksheet (W1) which i have filters - I have another worksheet (W2) that is formatted for a institutional purpose where i must put the things selected in the W1, but the problem is that: in the W1 i have a cell (A1) with some data but in W2 i have a space composed with one line but with several columns and excel says that he cannot paste the information copied in W1 to put in W2. there is any way to avoid this problem because at the moment i am making copy paste one by one, and it takes to many time and i would like to copy and paste the information selected by the filter in W1 to paste in W2.
