Generate Table With Internal And External Data?

May 23, 2014

I have a workbook that need to call for external data (this is information from January till May) from another workbook to manage it. I get this external data as a Tabla_A that needs to be updated continually because the extenal workbooks is adding information constantly. However, now i have to incorporate a specific range of old information (information of December, 2013) before the external data in the same Table_A. This last information wont ever change and needs to be incorporated to analize de information from December till Now.

The problem is when I insert the December information as new arrows at the beginning of Table_A, later I update the table and this old data is remplaced automatic by the external Data range. For that reason, I'm wondering to know if there is some way to have one Table_A with a static range of arrows (december) and another range of arrows (January onwards) that is updatable.

External References That Should Be Internal

Mar 1, 2007

I update files monthly and save them each month with a new name (eg. Jan, Feb, etc.).

In the file I have a reference from one tab to another tab within the same file. So every time I re-save this file with a new name, it should still reference the cell in the other tab - same file.

BUT on 2 occasions this reference changed to an "external" reference to the previous month's file.

I've been doing this every month for over 2 years and this problem has only happened 2 times. I know others that have experienced this, but nobody knows what caused it.

Does anyone know what would cause this? The biggest problem is that I may not notice this has happened for a long time.

One other thing I might add. I use an older version of Excel (2000). I share these files with other people who may have newer versions (I'm not sure who has what). Can sharing these files with others over a network system have something to do with this? Can opening "read only" when someone else is in the file and then saving as a copy do this?

External Web Data Query Fails To Insert Table Data?

Jul 9, 2014

An external data web query points to a web site that offers a foreign exchange rate calculator. In my browser, I selected the specific currency pair I need and used the resulting url in the web query. The "New Web Query" pane resolves the url correctly and allows me to select the table data I want (the little yellow arrow turns to a green check mark). However, when I hit "Import" and select the target cell, the only data returned is the parameters from the url and an error msg (This web query returned no data...). How do I get the query to pass the parameters to the website correctly?

Adding Columns To External Data Table?

Sep 11, 2013

I have a External Data Table, but I wanted to add a extra column to it for comments. I just need to be able to write down what I did with that particular order or things like that. I did make a column, but the problem is whenever I update the table the comments column fields stay static I mean they don't move with their row. So it ends up the comment belonging to a row is now on another row.

is there a way I can tell excel to move the cell with the record or something like that.

Automatic Refresh Of Pivot Table On Changes In External Data Source?

Dec 4, 2013

I have a pivot table report connected to an external data source (OLAP cube).I want to automatically refresh the pivot table report everytime the OLAP cube data changes.

I know we can use Automatic refresh on open of workbook or time intervals after which to refresh .But i want the auto refresh to work even if the workbook is already open and there is no definite time interval after which the cube is likely to change.SO,by defining intervals for auto refresh i do not intend to waste time refreshing even if there is no change.

There are multiple pivot table reports and pivot charts connected to the same OLAP cube.

Generate Weekly Reports From Table

Oct 2, 2007

I would like to create one page (sort of like a form) to use to collect specific weekly payroll related data for multiple employees and be able to automatically transfer that data to its own weekly data page based on the week date, and then also automatically post specific data to each individual employees' total pages. While I am self taught and comfortable with formulas I do not yet have a lot of experience with VBA and am just now recognizing and exploring the true power of Excel so I don't always yet see the best way to accomplish my goal.

My current way of doing this is to reuse the same form page. I plug in the data for each employee that week, it calculates, I print it out, and then I manually update each employee's total page for that date. As I do this I lose the previous week's details. I would like to retain a page for each week's details in addition to having each employee's total pages. Is this possible or is there a better way to accomplish my task?

Auto Generate Table For Scatter Graph

Oct 31, 2006

after spending hours searching the forum, I begin to seriously doubt my ability to even formulate a suitable search question. My problem SHOULD be a known one, but I am unable to find any clues. Here we go:

I have made a pretty stright-forward forecasting model. It is used to calculate economics of a coal fuelled power plant (even though that shouldn't matter). The outcome is, among other things, a single number for Profit / MWh in Euros. There are several input data, such as fuel price, price for CO2 emission rights, operational expenditure, capex, etc.

My idea, then, is to lock all in-data parameters except ONE, then let this variable vary incrementally and then produce a new small table with a) the variable data (example: price for CO2 rights ranging from 10 to 50 Euro in 2 euro steps), and b) the resulting net profit in each case. Ideally, I wish to be able to chose which indata to lock and which to vary, i.e. solution need to have certain flexibility.

NB: The calculations are not that simple, i.e. I cannot use a simple formula - I need to use the exising output cell(s) to feed data.

How do I do this?

The outcome should be basically two rows with a suitable number of columns (or the other way around, two columns in X number of rows). The table will then be used to produce illustrative graphs.

I guess I could hard code a table by simply enter data, but heck, that's not the way to use Excel!

Macro To Generate A Line Graph With Coloured Pointers And Lables Based On Table

Sep 30, 2009

column A = Date : 01/02, 07/02, 14/02, 21/02, 28/02 (x-axis : shows when the table is updated)
column B = project: x, x, x, x, ,x (name of the project and trend line)
column C = Delivery Date : 01/05/2009, 08/05/2009, 20/05/2009, 30/05/2009, 28/02/2009 (plotted on the graph)
column D = Status : Green, Amber, Red, Green, Blue (status of the project. the points should be the same colour as is described in the table)
column E = Comments: original, delay, supply, out of money, on track, delivered-wow! (these comments will pop up if the user holds the cursor over a point)

NB Y-axis scale : 01/01/2009 to 31/12/2009 with increments of 14 days. this will be the same scale used for all projects.

Date Project Delivery Date Status Comments
01/02 x 01/05/2009 Green original date
07/02 x 08/05/2009 Amber delay supply
14/02 x 20/05/2009 Red out of money
21/02 x 30/05/2009 Green on track
28/02 x 28/02/2009 Blue delivered-wow

So id like the macro to draw the line for project x based on the 'delivery date'. The points should be coloured according to the 'status' column and when you hover the mouse over the point the data lable will show up taking info from the 'comments' column.

Would it be possible to create a macro that will be able to generate this graph automatically. I have a few projects id like to do the same thing for.

Pivot Table Layout - Generate List Of Unique Names And Their Associated Phone Numbers

Mar 18, 2013

I've read a lot of tutorials on how to use pivot tables, but found them either too basic, or too advanced, and never finding any example of what I am looking to do.

I have a database, column A holds names, and column B their phone numbers. I'd like to generate a list of unique names and their associated telephone numbers. I figure I can use a pivot table to do this.

But I do not quite understand how to format the pivot table to put the name in one column and the phone number in the next. I will use this pivot table as a vlookup range. I assume I can do this.

Macro To Check Internal Ips

May 26, 2008

we have a network of small routers and wifi aps. The Ip range has got a bit out of control so I would like to be able to audit it every once and a while.

how I could go through a set of IPs on a spreadsheet, open a telnet session or whatever, try pinging each ip individually, paste a response or no response in the adjacent column then move to the next ip in the first column (some sort of loop).

Time is not too much of an issue as I could run this overnight if need be.

As a response, the macro could just copy the last line of the ping eg

Minimum = 7ms, Maximum = 9ms, Average = 7ms
if it responds


Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 0, Lost = 4 (100% loss)

if it does not respond


Col1 col 2
Ip Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 0, Lost = 4 (100% loss) Minimum = 7ms, Maximum = 9ms, Average = 7ms Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 0, Lost = 4 (100% loss) Minimum = 3ms, Maximum = 21ms, Average = 9ms

Set Up A Direct Link To The Internal Calculator, Using A Button In VBA

I've tried doing it through a hyperlink direct to the calc.exe file, but get a lot of messages popping up (that'll scare a few of them). So thought I would try and find the excel name for it and use VBA, but I cannot find it anywhere.

I'm in the early stages of creating this spreadsheet right now, but whenever I try to refresh my data connections, it takes a tremendous amount of time. I have about 6 connections with 100 row lines total. Is this typical with data connections to the web? Is there a better way to do this?
