How To Make Generic Hyperlink

Jun 9, 2013

I have an Excel worksheet used as an index for my holiday photo collection. The worksheet consists of a list of geographic locations visited for a particular holiday, and a hyperlink in each of those cells to the location of the corresponding photo on my hard drive ( eg C:NZ PhotosOtago\796.jpg). When I have taken some 10,000 photos on a trip, I find this an easy way to quickly view pictures of any site visited on the holiday.

The Excel index and the photos are stored in different partitions on my computer.

I now wish to share these photos by burning them to a DVD, but I would like the Excel photo index to be also on this disk, but with hyperlinks that refer to the photo files on the DVD, not the originals on my hard drive.

If this is possible, and the format of the hyperlink that I should use in future? e.g., instead of making the hyperlink E:NZ PhotosOtago\796.jpg, could I make it ..NZ PhotosOtago\796.jpg, so that I can transfer the Excel spreadsheet to a DVD with the photos?

Also, is there a way to do a global change of the hyperlinks in all the worksheet cells?

Make Macros Generic & Easily Distributable

Aug 23, 2007

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?

Selecting Generic Range

Feb 1, 2007

I'm trying to write a formatting macro that will insert a gray divider (row) into a blank line. I'm going to do this with a keyboard command, but I'm having a hard time selecting to column AJ. Obviously this command...

Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlToRight)).Select

...takes you to the end of the page, but I don't need to go that far, just to column AJ.

Generic Formula Referencing Prior Tab/worksheet

Jan 20, 2010

The workbook has a tab for each day, and there are variance columns. The tabs are named for the date, like 1.20, 1.21, 1.22, etc.

For example, the formula on 1.21 in D2 is simply =C2-'1.20'!C2

That works fine, but it's a time-consuming job to always change it. You have one sheet to copy many times for all the other formulas, but then have to re-name and change that variance formula on each worksheet.

Is there a way to reference the prior worksheet without using it's specific name?
=C2-'prior worksheet'!C2 would be nice...I could take my one sheet and copy it about 23 times for each workday, then copy that whole workbook to use in the subsequent months without making any formula changes.

Dynamically Sort Generic Pivot Table Field

Feb 15, 2008

Is there a way to generically sort all pivot rows of a pivot table alphabetically each time the table is refreshed? I have a pivot table that pulls its data from a dynamic named range on a separate worksheet. As users add data to the range and refresh the pivot table the newly added items appear at the bottom of the table rather than alphabetically. I know how to specifically call out a pivot row and have it sort alphabetically (see code below) but I still want to allow users the flexibility of changing the fields and order of the pivot rows so specifically calling out a pivot row by field name isnít going to work. I need to somehow add code that says: For each pivot row (1 to n, where n = number of pivot rows) sort each in alphabetical order.

ActiveSheet.PivotTables("ptDWDM").PivotFields("Project Name").AutoSort _
xlAscending, "Project Name"

So in the above code I donít want the reference to ďProject NameĒ to be hard coded.

Reference Text File To Import Using Generic Letter Or Number

Jan 23, 2009

I have recorded some script in excel to import a *.dat file, delete the first 19 rows of data, then export the data as a *.csv file.

My problem is I have circa 30 *.dat files to import, all of which have large file names and I am fed up with copying and pasting them in.

So my question is, in the below code, can I somehow use a reference at the start such as:

abc1.dat = "1"
abc2.dat = "2"

Then where the files were used, reference the "1".dat and its exported version "1".csv for the abc1.dat case.

Call Subroutines With Names Based On Generic And Relative Part

My problem today, is actually being able to call the routines. I have tried to make a generic setup, so that each subroutine to be called is named "Macro_[number here]". So Macro_1, Macro_2 etc. By doing this I am hoping to be able to call all the subroutines using a For Each code.

At this point, my setup looks like this

Hyperlink Address From Hyperlink Formula/Function

Oct 17, 2006

I am having a slight problem copying hyperlinks. I have written some code that sorts data by date and then creates a simple diary. It originally placed the name of the event in the new diary sheet. What I would like to do is instead of copying the name into this new sheet copy a hyperlink that I have created to the company's website for that event.

I can create the hyperlink using hyperlink(B1,A1) where A1 is the company name and B1 is the web address but since the new sheet will not have the underlying data I need to actually copy the values and format of the hyperlink rather than the formula.

Make Userform Show Data From Spreadsheet And Add Delete Or Make New Entry

Jan 24, 2014

I have a spreadsheet on sheet 1 with a list of customers and their information. So on column A I have the customer number (i.e. k968, e37, p528,...), on column B i have the customer's name, on column C the street's name, on Column D the house number, on column E the zip code and finally the city on column F.

Right now there are around 600 customers in this list.

I have made a userform with a combobox in which I want to select an existing customer (pulled from the spreadsheet). On the same userform I have textboxes (customer number, name, street, number, zip, city). When I select a customer in the combobox, I want this customer's info to show up in the textboxes. I want to be able to change the info and hit Next to store the changes in the spreadsheet. When I do not select a customer from the combobox, I want to add new info in the textboxes and hit Next to store this info as a new customer. The userform also has a delete button. Then I select a customer in the combobox, this customer (and it's info) should be deleted from the spreadsheet when i hit Delete. So the spreadsheet is variable in length.

Hyperlink To A Value

Feb 4, 2010

I am trying to do is have a hyperlink go to another sheet after searching the second sheet for the same value. I have a sheet labeled "IQI" which has the total number of cases for a certain condition. I have another sheet labeled "IQI Cases" which lists out each case individually.

I want to be able to click on the Condidion in the IQI sheet and have that take me to that specific spot in the IQI Cases sheet where the cases for that condition begin.

Right now I just have a simple hyperlink to a range of cells. But each month a report is generated and the range will be different and I have to go and change the range each time. So I guess I want a hyperlink and a lookup function combination.

I dont know if this would be a Macro or a formula.

Hyperlink To PDF

I am trying to use hyperlinks to navigate documents. I created a html document with excel and used hyperlinks to PDF documents.

At first the hyperlinks worked fine, opening the PDF software and in turn the PDF document.

Now when i click the hyperlink in Internet Explorer for the PDF document to open, it brings me to a blank HTML document.

In other words, the hyperlinks to the PDF's no longer open the PDF software and document.

How To Add Hyperlink To VLookup

Jul 24, 2014

I'm having a problem getting a hyperlink to work when adding it to a vlookup. The vlookup is looking at a page number and returning the named drawing from an Auto Desk Inventor File. I'm trying to get the returned drawing name to become a hyperlink to open the drawing. I would rather have this added to the formula so if a page number ever changes the hyperlink will change to the correct drawing also. Here is what I have so far but it is just returning an error of " cannot open the specified file". =HYPERLINK(IF(E5="","",(VLOOKUP(E5,'Inventor Import'!$A$2:$E$200,5,FALSE))))

Hyperlink To Blank Available Row?

May 10, 2014

"A12" says "Click for new line". I want that to be a hyperlink so if someone clicks it, it will automatically take you to a fresh new line to input there information.

Row 14 and above is a frozen pane.

Anything from row 15 below will contain data.

I could have 1,232 rows and the users who are using this spreadsheet probably won't fancy scrolling down for ages to find a new row to enter the information...

Hyperlink Conversion

Jul 30, 2009

I have just been told that one of our servers is being replaced this weekend. I have thousands of hyperlinks in excel docs that reference this server. Other than manually reestablishing the links one by one to the new server, is there a way to do some kind of global change to replace the old server name with the new server name?

These are not hyperlink formulas, but rather Insert>>Hyperlink.

Or, is there a way to convert these hyperlinks to hyperlink formulas that would omit reference to the server and thus not be broken during the conversion?

Grasping at straws because I cannot envision having to relink these one by one.
