Programming Excel VBA Macro to do OCR (text recognition) from a prt scr screen capture image and input the text into cells. Currently my Excel file has a push-button, and upon clicking on it the macro pastes into Excel the current clipboard image I have created by pressing prt scr while in another program. The macro then crops the image to the region with the applicable text. I have to then manually type the text I see in image format into the appropriate cells.
the VBA coding to automate this? I'd like it to use the clipboard image and run it through OneNote OCR, after which the applicable text values are automatically entered into the cells. Ideally the code will first crop to the region with the desired text before it does OCR. If this is not feasible, it will need to incorporate a method (keyword search?) to hone in on the desired text after the entire prt scr image has been OCRed.
see attached image. Chart is recognizing the 20 dates but not using the real dates listed in the column. Changed settings multiple ways to try to get it to use the actuals - no luck. I realize 'month's is checked in the image - but I tried 'days' and still no luck. What needs to be changed to make it report actuals listed in the 2 columns?
I am looking to create a macro that will edit the code of another macro that is already setup. Basically, I have a macro that will open and close every file that has data linked to this workbook. Because of the 255 character limitation of text in Excel, I have a simple macro to open/close each so it will bring over any additional characters past 255. Now, this macro is saved to a master file, and each month we do a save as, and start a new period on it. The files we open/close are named C:/data/RCC/FY2007/10543 - ifi/10543 CurrentMonth Rec.xls
Is there a way to make a macro, that will do a simple find -- replace in the VBA code of the original sheet, so that it looks for the right files. So, with the above example, I would replace "CurrentMonth" with whatever I enter into an inputbox (say AUG for August).
And if you have a moment, is there a way to make two input boxes, one to denote the Fiscal Year (in the file path it is the entry that is FY2007) and CurrentMonth, so that if it is the new fiscal month then it will create a new directory and save in that new location? So when it is FY 2008, I would do a save as C:/data/RCC/FY2008/10543 - ifi/10543 CurrentMonth Rec.xls?
i have the table of holiday days with 7 columns(7 countries).Each column consists of 10(or more rows (holiday days).
I have a formula for calculating start day for a deposit which has to be renewed. formula is =workdays(end date of deposit,-2,A1:A10). -2 in formula is because all the trades in the market are traded Today+2days. A1:A10 is column of holiday days. This formula calculates the start of deposit excluding weekends,holiday days.
BUT I have more then 7 countries and I would like to have a macro so when in cell F10 I type SWEDEN,my formula automatically use the column with holiday days B1:B10 for sweden. When I type Finland, the formula uses column C1:C10 with holiday days from Finland respectively.
I work at a trading firm and use pivot tables to report on the success of traders on a daily basis. I add daily trading data to a raw data table that powers a set of reports. In one report I want to view MTD stats for a filtered group of 10 traders. The issue is that if I add a set of daily data that includes a new trader name, it will automatically be pre-checked and added to this report (and this happens daily). The only solution I came up with is to add another column in the raw data table that would allow me to group these traders and then use a page filter to include only them. This will work but I'd rather avoid adding columns to an already unruly data table (and would like flexibility to periodically define and track an arbitrary set of traders).
I have imports with several values listed as :00. I am unable to adjust the import or export to make these values 0:00 as they should for calculating. How can I convert the :00 values to 0:00? Its literally just like I need to add a 0 zero in front of the colon ":". This is the case with anything imported that is less than 1:00 minute. I have :55 that should be 0:55 and so on. I have tried re-formatting for different time values, tried various formulas that were listed in the forums.
I have a cell with 01/01/2010 shown as Jan-10. Meanwhile i also need another cell 31/01/2010 shown as Jan-10. Is there a function to add the new cell 31/01/2010 based on 01/01/2010 instead of key in manually.
I have a spread sheet with a date colume that reads: 2012-06-27-19 I need to have this read like 06/27/2012 but nothing I do is working I have tried to go to the formatting process and backing the hr:mm out and that doesn't work. I really don't want to go line by line to manually correct this issue.. HENCE ... over 2000 lines
Second question: If I have a column that reads 02/15/2012 and another column that reads 3/27/2012 how to a format a 3rd column to make it read total number of days between 1st date and 2nd date?
I have an excel file with 2 sheets. Sheet 1 has a column that contains formulas (ie (18299*11151)/20067 ) Those numbers are IDs referencing questions stored in Sheet 2. What I would like to do is find a way to look up those questions and place them into the formula instead of the ID numbers.
I have been using Excel to record the routine daily issue of items to different groups in a matrix layout, I use a different workbook for each month with worksheets for each group. The matrix takes the form of the item issued being the left hand column and the date issued the top row of the matrix, the quantity issued is recorded at the intersection. Each item can have a different quantity issued on different days. I'm using Excel 2011 for Mac but could use PC Excel 2010. Is there a way to convert the data held in this way to a list? What I'd like to achieve is a list showing the Item, the Quantities Issued and the the Issue dates
I'm in the military and for maintenance we use the Julian date the format goes as follows "09357" that is simplified as 09 = the year and 357= the three hundred and fifty seventh day of the year. so 09357= 12,23,2009..
so on to my question:
how can i make excel auto convert the julian date to the regular date and vice versa?
I am looking for a macro that will convert the active sheet in an Excel 2010 file to a PDF, attach the PDF to an Outlook 2010 email message, and fill in the subject line and recipient address which are the same each time.
1- I dont know why but sometimes excel 2010 converts numbers to dates automatically in my workbook. I use this macro to solve the problem, but since last week it is not working. I get an error: "Method 'NumberFormat' of object 'Range' failed".
2- because it should work in all cells of the workbook, the macro must make changes only in the cells with absolute numbers (ex: 1223) but must not change if in the cell there is a date like 12-may-2012 (numbers with hyphens).
This is my function: _____________________________ Sub PuxaDatas() Dim sht As Worksheet For Each sht In ActiveWorkbook.Sheets
I'm using Excel 2010 and would like to know if it's possible to convert selected ranges in multiple sheets into one PDF file? For example, I want to select range("A1:O10) in Sheet1 and range("A1:N25") in Sheet2, then convert both Excel sheets into PDF file with two pages.
If I select data from A1 and J1 (in practical it will be more Columns) the Macro should prompt me how many Columns would be the output on Master Sheet. If the input is 2 then it should create an output Sheet "Master" and should show the following result
It after selection I run the macro and input 3 then the output should go in three columns (A1,B1,C1) one below other. If 4 is Input then 4 Columns (A1,B1,C1,D1) will come below each other so on and so forth.
I import data from web forms via Excel Web Query which has dates in the US format. I would like to convert them to the uk format. Unfortunately, unlike other data import functions in excel, web query doesn't seem to have an option to choose that. Also after asking the forum via this post, I figured that I cannot use a formula to do this, and need a macro. I recorded a macro which exports text to columns where I choose MDY function to convert the date.
However, the macro doesn't convert the bottom part of the blank cell for some reason. The macro did not work in either modified or untouched versions. When I actuallly do it through excel buttons, it works.
