Auto Invoice Number Copied Sheet
auto incrementing my invoices.

The way I do my invoicing is like this. I have 1 Invoice in a worksheet (eg April 1) When I make my invoice for the next day I right click on the April 1 tab at the bottom. Right click/Move copy/move to end &check the create a copy box. It changes to april1(2)I then right click and change the date to the next invoice date. This might seem goofy, but it works for me. I have my Invoice number at the top of the page in cell e2. Is there a formula to automatically increase the invoice number by 1 every time I copy it?

Saving An Invoice Number When Reopening An Invoice
I have an Excel Invoice Template, saved as a template.

I have code that generates a new invoice number each time the template is opened in VBA Editor. The auto numbering system works great! However.... (here comes the sad part)

After I enter all the data I need on the invoice, I want to save a copy of the invoice in a different file folder, which I can no problem. The problem is, if I re-open the saved invoice, we will call it Invoice #100, excel asks me if I want to update, if I say either yes or no, the invoice number will change to Invoice #101. I'm sure you can see how this can cause a major problem if we need to compare information later on, finding the correct invoice would be almost impossible as it would not match the customers invoice number.

What I need to know is:

Is there code I can add to the existing code, to stop the increment on a saved invoice, but not on the original template?

Code For Moving Data From Row To Template Invoice Format - My Worst Nightmare
I’m looking to create an invoice-type format from data in a row but only when the client requests it.

So, if there is a Y in column R. i.e. the client wants an invoice format then.

I have been given a “template” format by the team manager that I have to use. Its far from ideal, well for me anyway, for moving things around and I’m struggling to get anywhere with it.

I’m trying to take the data from the row in the source / client worksheet, which will be created via a code from here, and transpose it to a copy of the “template” worksheet which sits within the same workbook. This is made more complicated because in some cases the data for the invoice will be in two or more rows, because there will be a few items on the same invoice, but they will still be on the same worksheet.

The source / client worksheet has data from columns A to T with a header in row 1.

The details will need to be transposed from the relevant row from each column to the “template” worksheet as follows
From column in source / client worksheet To cell in copy template worksheet.

From - To

This is where it gets messy, or more messy should I say


For each of the six sections M to N above there may be more than one relevant items which will be on rows 3 onwards of the source /client worksheet.
So, ideally I’m guessing based on if there is data in column A of the source / client worksheet then M to N above will need to copied downwards, i.e. below itself on the template worksheet say from column A and B rows 33-45 copied to A and B rows 47-59 until all the data is copied over.

Blinking eck ... this is a nightmare… a real nightmare. This more than one section above is really bad… I’m at a complete loss.

Although if its really not possible they may have to have another template worksheet with the second, third etc items on as I just can’t see this working.

Retain Auto Number Sequence After Row Insert
I'm using a simple auto numbering command.

eg: cell A1: 1
cell A2: =(A1+1)

then shift, copy/paste cell A2 until A600,

This creates a sequential number column from 1-600. My problem lies when a new row is inserted, which is left blank. How can i maintain this auto function upon a new Row insertion?

Auto-fill Informtion Using Invoice
I have an invoice I use for my business. I want to be able to type in the sku # and then have the description and price fill in automatically. The invoice already calculates the total retail price based on the number ordered, tax, S&H and discount level. It then gives you total due for items bought. Getting the invoice this far was a miracle for me, but I get tired of retyping all the info now that sales are picking up. I have attached a copy of my invoice file.

Macro - Using Sheet Template Need It To Auto-Rename
*Inserts an existing worksheet template and places it at the end (or after all) the existing worksheets.

What I would like the macro to also do is:

*Automatically rename the inserted worksheet (via my worksheet template) in sequence to the existing worksheets

Example: So let's say I have 3 existing worksheets titled Sheet1, Sheet2, Sheet3 (that's basically the default naming Excel uses). But would when I insert a new worksheet (via my worksheet template) it is shown as Sheet. And if I insert another one, it would be Sheet (2). So basically it is showing as such:

Sheet1, Sheet2, Sheet3, Sheet, Sheet (2)

What I would like the macro to do is automatically rename those last 2 worksheets (and any subsequent worksheets thereafter) in sequential order. Basically displaying it as such:

Sheet1, Sheet2, Sheet3, Sheet4, Sheet5...(and so on and so forth)

Count & Insert Template Sheets
I need a coding for count of "Reconciled" items and insert that number of template sheets.
Attached is the sheet for your better understanding.

With the help of attached example I need a coding which will count the number of items the word "reconciled" appears in control sheet (L:L) and should insert that number of template sheets. In this example the count is 16 so it should insert 16 new template sheets.
Pls note the count would not always be the same and count would not always be in cell L123.

After inserting the template it should be renamed as the combined value from the cells.
for example from control sheet the template should be renamed as from E8,D8 & F8
First should be affiliate then subdivision and then currency. It should include "-" between the names.

Increment Invoice Number On Open
I have created a templet for an invoice, but I cannot get the invoice number to increment. I am using the following code from a previous thread

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Sheets("Sales Invoice"). Range("B7").Value = Sheets("Sales Invoice").Range("B&").Value + 1
End Sub

The address of the invoice number is B7 and the name of the sheet where the B7 is located is Sales Invoice.

I want to start the invoice number at 100000 and add the letters PM to the beginning so that when it is displayed and printed out it reads PM100000.

Then I want it to increment by 1 and this number be placed in the B7 area when the invoice is opened next time.

Determine Next Invoice Number Stored In Range
I am trying to add a number to invoices (invoice numbers) on a UserForm that is used to make and/or modify scheduled service records for a cleaning business. We fill out the schedule well in advance of when the jobs are scheduled to be done, some customers are on a set schedule such as once a week, everyother week or once a month. Some just call in when they need cleaning. Each day has 27 rows set aside for possible customers (most are not used). We make out as many invoices in advance as is possible and fill-in the rest as they call-in. This leaves a lot of gaps between days

I have an auto-advancing formula tha takes a helper column to give me invouce numbers when there is a customer listed in column B and blanks space where there is no customer listed. This does make for volitile invoice numbers.

Formula in row 3 of the invoice coulmn "A": =IF(B3="","",H3)
Formula in row 3 of helper column "H": =IF(B3="",H2,H2+1)

The helper column only advances if there is a customer listed in column B of that row otherwise it repeates the last number. The invoice column only displays this helper number if there is a customer listed in column B of that row. I can't figure out how to get this to work on a UseerForm with vba.

Updating Excel Files...Old Template To New Template?
I Have a number(30+) of excel files based off of one template. I have since updated the template, thus making the the old ones obsolete. Is there a way to update the older files to use the new template without having to copy and paste the addition's row by row column by column?

None of the additions to the template will change the placement of existing data, nor will it change the data itself. It will however add Values to cells that were previously empty.

Hints, Tricks, or Ideas?

Add A New Sheet From Template And Edit A Template
I created a one-sheet template, and a new workbook from that sheet. When in that new workbook I go Insert>Sheet>Other and select the aforementioned one-sheet template, Excel crashes, or if not, it adds the new sheet, but then no longer saves the workbook and starts producing error messages (like: "An unexpected error has ocurred. AutoRecover has been disabled for this session of Excel.").

Now, the complication is that this is working when I do a model operation with a generic template sheet. So I checked the template that I actually want to form sheets after, and Excel finds no errors, nor does it's name contain any unusual characters. What could Excel prevent from working with a template like this?

How do I edit a template? The only way I can find is to manually find the spot in finder, open, and save with the same name. But: if I do that, the documents basing on that template don't change accordingly. If they're intended not to, the whole template procedure makes no sense. I could then just as well copy a file. — I've been searching for tutorials on that, but google doesn't even return a single result on Excel "edit template". Therefor my very basic question here.

Auto Date Insert
if I add data into C2 then the current date will appear in A2. I also don't want the date to change every time the project is opened.


If I enter $32,500 into C2 - The current date (4-Dec) would appear in A2.

then if I close excel and I open it tomorrow, A2 would still read as 4-Dec, while if I enter $23.52 into C3, the current date (5-Dec) would appear in A3.

- would need to be able to enter multiple entries on one day as well.

Auto Insert Value In A Column
I have an excel sheet where I gather information about companies. There are two columns involved in my problem. Column "D" and column "E". In column "D" I put the country code (example: DE for Germany, GB for England and so on..) In column "E" I put a number (for example: 45786521). What I would like Excel to do is to autoinsert the value of the column "D" before the numbers I have written in column "E". For example if in Row 12 column "D" is GB. And then I write the number 555888777 in column "E", then after the number is written and I hit Enter I would like column "E" to look this way: GB555888777. So the GB (value of the column "D") is inserted at the beginnig of the number I just wrote in column "E". How can that be done?

P.S.:I know that there is a possibility to add the values of these two columns in another column, but as there are far too many columns in the worksheet I would not like to add an extra column just for this.

If the cell's value was to change, for instance the user going back to a cell to change the value for whatever reason, I would like the previous comments to remain and then give the user the choice to edit comment or not.

On each sheet you have a unique code for the product which is the same on both sheets.

From the raw data sheet i want to the weight for that product to be inserted onto the master sheet.

(the problem is that both sheets are not in order so you cannot just copy and paste the column)

the unique code on the master sheet is G9 and the unique code on sheet 2 is A27 the weight on sheet 2 is r27 and want the corresponding weight for the product to appear on the master sheet in column BI9.

Macro To Insert Auto Sum Function In Various Rows With A Column
I have to create a spreasheet monthly that has perhaps 60 transactions. The data is in columns A - G, with columns E and F having the costs figures. I need to sum the value in column E and also in Column F every few rows. The problem is that sometimes there are two rows per transaction and other times it could be 30 rows per transaction. Where I will be lucky is that there are two rows between transactions, and the sum goes in the first empty row.

Basically what I would need it to do, from a macro point of view is to go down column E, and every time it finds the first empty row, insert an auto sum. It would then need to ignore the next row, because it too, is empty.

Just Column E - I need an autosum in the "empty row 1's)

empty row 1
empty row 2
empty row 1
empty row 2

Copy From Template And Select Any Sheet That Starts With S And Copy / Paste This Template To
I have a list of invoice #'s on a sheet named "Temp Sheet".

I have a VBA macro that created a new tab for each entry and named it the invoice #. So basically the vba code created a new tab ( based on the number of invoice #'s on my list ), and named each tab an invoice number. So if I had a list of 10 invoice #'s, named S1-S10, the vba code created 10 tabs, named S-1, S-2,. S-3.....

Now to my question.
I have a template sheet I want to copy from ( "Template" ), and select any sheet that starts with "S", and copy/paste this template to.

Using Letters In An Auto Number
I have a database to which I am connecting a form, I need to have a unique ID for each record and due to the number of tables need to include letters in my numbering (ex. U00001, for Users; B00001, for Books; and V00001, for videos.) I have adjusted a very helpful macro I recieved from Roy Cox and am currently trying this code on the "user form":

Count_Row = 1
DATABASE_RECORDS = Sheets("Users"). Range("B1:B10000")

'To identify the next blank row in the database sheet

If DBRECORD <> "" Then Count_Row = Count_Row + 1
RowNum = Count_Row
X = RowNum - 1
Sheets("Users").Range("A1" & RowNum) = "U000" & X

This is supposed to find the fill the "A" (ID) column after the "B" Column has been filled. Currently It is placing U0001 in cell A12 when all that is in the sheet is headers.

Auto Insert A Row With Info Populated From The Row Above
to be able to do is have a stock control sheet that tells me how much of 1 item we have in stock which is easy, the hard part comes when this stock is sold as this stock can be sold to a number of different customers e.g.

We have 10,000 X Pens

Customer 1 buys 1,000
Customer 2 buys 6,000
Customer 3 buys 3,000

i need a way of saying that we have 10,000 pens but if we sold 1,000 then we can click a button (macro maybe) and that will automatically see that we have 10,000 for that line and we have only sold 1,000 so we need a line inserting saying that we have 9,000 remaing and so on.... The sheet needs to record who these goes to though, that the reason i was thinking of adding a row

If this doesnt make sense then i am happy to answer your questions?

i can upload an example excel sheet if required if someone can explain how i do this?
