Hyperlinks Won't Work When Save File To Another Location On Computer
Jan 8, 2014
I've created a spreadsheet of clients and info; I want each client name to link to their specific folder on my computer for easy referencing. I entered in all the links and they work just fine; however, when i tried to save the file to another location on my computer so it could be used by another employee (same terminal, etc, just in another folder) the hyperlinks stopped working.
I am attempting to write an Excel macro that will be stored in a file called MacroFile. The purpose of the macro is to
1. Follow a hyperlink to an Excel file saved in a SharePoint type enviroment 2. Save the file to my laptop directory My Documents.
Below is the code I have written. The code is following the hyperlink and saving a file but is the focus file is incorrect.
Here is what happens:
1. Open up MacroFile and run macro 2. Hyperlinked file LinkedFile_1.xls is opened 3. File NewFile_1 is saved but contains the info from MacroFile 4. Hyperlinked file LinkedFile_2.xls is opened 5. File NewFile_2 is saved but contains the info from LinkedFile_1 6. Hyperlinked file LinkedFile_3.xls is opened 7. File NewFile_3 is saved but contains the info from LinkedFile_2
The files created are named correctly but have the wrong data in them. I need to know how to control which file is considered ActiveWorkbook.
I've been searching all morning through various posts on this subject, but I can't find anything that I can adapt to my needs. Here is the code I have:
ChDir "C:Documents and SettingsmynameDesktop" ActiveWorkbook. SaveAs Filename:= _ "C:Documents and SettingsmynameDesktopBook1.txt", FileFormat:=xlText, _ CreateBackup:=False
This file will be used accross multiple computers and therefore the directory will always change. What I need to hapen, is for this code to save the workbook in the same directory as the origional file. I also want the file name to refer to a cells value, as I will be having the user define the name through a userform.
I get an xl file sent to me every day which I upload into a database. I then save the file keeping its name and save it into a selected folder. Is it possible to add a macro at the beginning of my current macro that saves the file using its name to a selected folder?
For a sheet that many non-expert users will use on different systems I need a macro that let's them save, print and send the results of their work. So I made a macro that makes a copy of only 1 sheet of the workbook and saves it with a given name to a given location. The problem is that I want a location prompt to ask the user where they want the file saved, while giving/suggesting them a fixed filename. A lot of different users will make and use their sheets so I need a certain naming policy to manage all the files. (date, location, etc)
I just got a new computer and upgraded to Excel 2010 and Windows 7. When I try to open a workbook in Excel 2010, my saved file paths on the left side of the screen are gone. I want to put them back in there.
In Excel 2007 running Windows XP, I would just right click in the left side menu and click "add" and now that's no longer an option.
I have a programme which works fine on my computer at home but when I send it via email to work the 'sort' function messes up (there is a chance it could be the 'vlookup' function, though) and all the cells in the sort range lose their formula reference - which is of course a tad annoying.
The part of the programme I'm having difficulty with is this:
I want to transfer my Excel-icons. Some of them are custom buttons where I have added user-defined functions. Is there any way I can do this? A list of icons with their function or purpose is OK as well.
I have received from reading previous posts in this forum. Now I have a problem that I have struggled with for weeks. Ref: Excel 2000. I create (Purchase Order) Workbooks with 50 (POs) Worksheets, and 1 summary (Index) worksheet. The Index worksheet has hyperlinks to each PO (created via VBA), and works as expected. Subsequently, each worksheet has a hyperlink back to the Index worksheet also created from VBA
Before the hyperlink in each worksheet will work I must (with the cell containing the hyperlink selected) either right-click|Hyperlink|Edit Hyperlink then press "Enter", or pres Ctrl-K (which brings up the edit dialog) and then press "Enter." If I don't manually edit each hyperlink on each worksheet these hyperlinks select the targeted cell on the same worksheet as the selected cell, not the targeted cell on the Index worksheet. Note, when I manually edit each hyperlink I am not actually making any changes to the hyperlink (thought something is obviously happening that I am unaware of), I am only accessing the edit dialog box.
I was reinstalling office on a laptop where the hard drive had been replaced. I used the 'save settings, wizard on my desktop and put in the new settings when I reinstalled Office.
This almost worked, but not quite.
Word and PowerPoint seem to be fine but when I reopened Excel I got a number of messages saying that objects could not be loaded because they were not on the machine. Some of this was because Excel was trying to reference add-ins that needed to be reinstalled. I have done that, and there are now fewer messages - but there are still two and I can't get rid of them. One looks for 'objects' the other a single 'object'. There seems no way of finding out what the objects are in question, and what it that Excel is stumbling over. Can I do anything other than abandoning my previous settings and starting again, or else living with having to click twice every time I start excel to get rid of the messages?
I have tried uninstalling Excel and reinstalling but this doesn't help. Perhaps registry changes are the problem...and I hate the registry.
Using Excel 2010, I set up a simple workbook with a spreadsheet on one page and the ranges for data validation on another. I successfully linked the fields in the "Category" and "Tender" columns with the data on the second sheet, making nice drop down menus. Everything works fine on my computer. However, when we open the workbook on a different station, the drop down menus disappear. If you highlight any of the "Category" or "Tender" fields, the little drop down prompt is missing; they behave like regular, un-formatted fields. It appears that the data validation became un-linked.
We tried opening versions with certain fields locked (Mainly the Total, Breakdown, and Summary areas, but the fields with data validation were still editable), and also completely unlocked documents. Every time, the drop down lists were lost when opened on different stations.
I've attached the completely unlocked version : 00_FLEX TRAVEL EXPENSE REPORT_v3.xlsx
Forget to check a box or something? This seems way harder for me to figure out that it should be!
I have a workbook that links to other workbooks, in short people add data in the "other" workbook and the new workbook, we'll call "over see" automatically updates to show this data as it is add. The problem I have at the moment is there are hyperlinks in column H in the "other" workbooks that I need to also automatically transfer/update into the "over see" workbook. When I copy pasted or linked the workbook by having each cell equal the corresponding cell in the "other" workbook(s), the hyperlink lost the first half of its code. When I tried to creat a macro to fix this, code below, it only works for the first hyperlink, all links are different, but with my current macro, they all become the same.
when I open my sheet on another computer, all cell value which contain formula show no value. just blank. formula is link to same workbook on different tab. when I save as again on my desktop, all value appears. excel 2007 is using.
I have a requirement to download a lot of historical data files from the archieve of an website. The url goes something like this: [URL]....
This downloads file for 21022014 ie. 21-Feb-2014. I need to be able to have a facility to have a selection criteria on my user form (in excel) where I specify a date range and the macro automatically downloads all the valid excel files available within that date range (files for Saturday, Sunday and some holiday dates will not be available in the website archive database) one after the other (like at single clcik of button) into a specific location (predefined viz.. c:/Users/EOD files/) on my laptop. Best would be if I am able to select the save location run time by using a 'Browse' like feature where I go and choose my local laptop folder...same type when we try uploading a file from our laptop to the web..
I have a macro which performs the auto save function perfectly. I'm looking at possible enhancements.
1. How to set autorecover save location in VBA? I know how to do this on the front-end i.e goto tools/options/save tab and set it there As i have disabled save autorecovery feature, autorecover save location is greyed out
2. How to create a backup of my workbook? So that my workbook will perform autosave and when i close this workbook at the end of the day all the latest changes are added to the backup and saved
User selects 'go to page B' on page A. They look at an object then click the object to go back to page A. Once back on page A they need to check data on page B, but in the same general location as where they just looked. This is over simplified, but pretty much sums up what I need to do. The code I have now is below, but keeps sending me to the last selection on my current page.
Public Sub SaveLocation(ReturnToLoc As Boolean) Static WB As Workbook Static WS As Worksheet Static R As Range If ReturnToLoc = False Then Set WB = ActiveWorkbook Set WS = ActiveSheet Set R = Selection Else WB.Activate WS.Activate R.Select End If End Sub
Public Sub SetSaveLoc() SaveLocation (False) End Sub
Public Sub GetSaveLoc() SaveLocation (True) End Sub
I do routine tasks every day which involves opening 3 different files and pasting data into my main file. The data is always in the same format, and the 3 files are saved in the same location (3 different folders through). The 3 files are saved each day and the naming convention is constant, with only the date changing. For example, the files are always saved in C:My Documents and the files are called test_05.02.2013.xls. Tomorrow the file will be called test_06.02.2013.xls and so on.
So each day I will be rolling a file forward and I want to bring in the info from each of these files based on the new day.
How to do 1, and I will do the others (because the concept will be the same).
I've been searching for ages trying to work out how to do this but have so far only managed to confuse myself. i have office 2007 and I have found some code to convert an excel sheet to PDF, however I need it to saveas the contents of cell (e6) and save to a location on our network drives (C:TEMP).
I have a workbook with 4 worksheets the first is called "input" which I use to enter information which goes to the other worksheets which arecalled engine, gearbox, doors.
I am stuck on the following; after inputting the information. I want to save as pdfs in various locations.
Is it possible to have 4 buttons on the input sheet which automatically :
Button 1 - Save "engine" worksheet as a pdf to a specified folder Button 2 - Save "gearbox" worksheet as a pdf to a specified folder Button 1 - Save "doors" worksheet as a pdf to a specified folder Button 1 - Save the sheets as multiple excel files to a specified folder
I often need to save the user's current position on a worksheet, do some stuff then get them back to where they started. In the past I've saved the current location sometimes as a string and sometimes as a range.
Code: Sub BackToRange() Dim BackToHere As Range Set BackToHere = Selection ' do stuff BackToHere.Select End Sub
Code: Sub BackToString() Dim BackToHere As String BackToHere = Selection.Address ' do stuff Range(BackToHere).Select End Sub
managed to get a piece of code working to create unique sequential numbers for purchase orders, but only by "enabling all macros" which is apparently not recommended and could conceivably, as I understand it, leave a PC vunerable to viriuses contained in other imported files.
Please bear with me as I'm very new to anything other than basic Excel functions; macros were, until last week, something I didn't even know existed, let alone how to use them. Anyway, having got my macro working, I understand that the best thing to do is put it in a "trusted location" from where it will work automatically without requiring operator input (whilst still maintaining high overall security), rather than "enabling all macros", but I have a couple of issues with this.
Firstly, having created a folder in "my documents" as per the instructions, how do I save the macro there? What format should it be in? Surely not a word document? (as you can gather I am still really in the dark about all this). If not, what?
Secondly, how do I direct Excel to access and run the macro from this "trusted location" folder, rather than the already existing "module1"?
I am running a macro in Excel which automatically generates a PDF of my worksheet. Currently it saves in the default location but i want to modify it to a specific location - P:Emergency Services|Procative ContactForms PDF.
