Limitations On The Sheet.Copy Method

Jan 28, 2007

I have a macro that copys a worksheet a user-inputted number of times but throws an error after adding Sheet #62. The line it hangs on is:

Sheets(myTemplate).Copy After:=Sheets(i - 1)

Does anyone know if this is a problem with my code, a memory issue, or the workbook I'm using to copy? In the past when I've copied a lot of sheets in a workbook (to the same workbook), Excel sometimes won't let me add anymore but if I copy all the sheets to a new workbook it will sometimes let me add more sheets. I figured it was a problem with how Excel counts sheets.

Sub CopySheets()
myTemplate = ActiveSheet.Name

'First, jump through the validation hoops
Dim AddSheetQuestion As Variant

'Define the application input box question
AddSheetQuestion = Application.InputBox("Please enter the number of sheets you want to add," & vbCrLf & _
"or click the Cancel button to cancel the addition:", _
"How many sheets do you want to add?")

'Cancel or the X was clicked
If AddSheetQuestion = False Then..................................

Limitations Of Lookup(2,1)

Nov 25, 2009

I'm currently using a Lookup(2,1) that looks up an unopened excel sheet stored locally.

When I enter the formula I always get a #NA.

What I was wondering was if its a limitation of the lookup funcation, or my PC not having enough resources.

The linked XL sheet is ~10mb, and has over 8000 rows.

Below is my current forumla that results in a #NA

=LOOKUP(2,1/('[Monthly%20Agent%20AHT%20Tracker%20Current.xls]Quote'!$B$1:$B$8500&":"&'[Monthly%20Agent%20AHT%20Tracker%20Current.xls]Quote'!$E$1:$E$8500&":"&'[Monthly%20Agent%20AHT%20Tracker%20Current.xls]Quote'!$M$1:$M$8500&"Team Leader"&":James Kinsey"&":""Privilege"),'[Monthly%20Agent%20AHT%20Tracker%20Current.xls]Quote'!$Q$1:$Q$8500)

Time Limitations In File

Aug 22, 2006

We have an Excel file that is located on the network and is accessed by numerous individuals. Should someone need access when another user has the file open, we get a message that the file is currently in use and it also lists the user id of that person. The issue is that a particular user will open the file and keep it on their desktop for hours at a time. Is there a way to limit the amount of time that user can have the file open? Is there something within Excel that I can turn on that should the file not be modified for a particular amount of time that Excel saves the file and closes it down?

Version Limitations On Countifs Functions?

Mar 27, 2014

I recently bought a new Dell XPS 10 tablet with a keyboard. When I copied my spreadsheets from my old notebook, none of the countifs or countif functions are working, all popping out a zero. It work completely fine on my old notebook on which I have Excel 2010 installed. On the tablet I have the pre-installed Home & Student 2013 RT. Could this version have limitations to my functions? What can I do to get my functions working again?

Visual Limitations Of Cells From One Computer To Another

Nov 19, 2013

I got this wonderful, beautiful spreadsheet/template i'm using now for my small business, and well, i've got it all tweaked and tuned so it looks beautiful on my screen (100% view in excel). I can look at it, and they way it looks, is the way it prints whether i opt for a PDF or (EEEEEK!) paper. I've sent this report and template i've put together with Mrexcel's support, and it's all primp and pretty and the person i send the spreadsheet to for review? he's looking at it at the same 100%, and lines are cut off when multiple rows are merged that have multiple sentences typed (technically reference to) in. he's tried to print both pdf and paper from his computer and had no issue. it comes out perfect. It only looks visually cut off. we're trying to avoid a second transmission back to me to reformat say something needs to be omitted. QA if you will.

my question: Is this some sort of issue relative to our screen resolution? is there a way i can optimally get what he is seeing when he views it electronically to be what i'm seeing electronically?

Hyperlink Folder Level Limitations

Jun 15, 2007

I am writing a macro that scrapes information from other workbooks. I wanted to add a hyperlink on each line to the workbook that row's information came from. I tried both the VBA method of adding a hyperlink as well as the formula method. When I click on the link that was created, windows explorer opens up to a folder rather than opening the workbook. I have a feeling I am hitting some folder level limitation. The link is to a network share and here is an example of what it looks like:

\MYCOMPANY.CORPFILESCBOSEALDRIVEDeptROPSPT Billing2007 AdjustmentsMCBDApproved#01305.20075.25.07 - C - NAME.xls

Method Of Copy And Protecting A Workbook

Jul 4, 2007

I'm developing a few workbooks that may at some point be distributed amongst other people. If this happens, I don't want people sharing these workbooks around, and therefore I need a way of enforcing the users to only use a workbook on a single computer.

I have come up with a method that allows a workbook to open on a single machine only, and not others, but I had to devise this method myself. I was wondering if there are other ways of doing it, possibly quicker ways than my own, or if there is something already within Excel that caters for this?

Most Efficient Method To Copy Rows

Jan 12, 2010

Have two ranges:

Range("Master") 5000R x 500C
Range("Filtered") 5000R x 500C

1st Column in Master is a calculated trigger column that sets itself to the row number if it needs to be copied to the Filtered range or is 0. .

Currently using two loops:

Loop 1 Build Collection of unique row numbers from the trigger column.

Loop 2 Process Collection: range copying row values from master to filtered.

Method To Copy Formula When Inserting A Row

Jul 18, 2006

some method by which a user can insert a row that will then copy any forumulas, not their resultant value, in the row above into the new row. The best would be for a user to be able to just use Insert > Row from the toolbar and then have a macro automatically run, but I am willing to use any possible solutions.

I know that there are other posts on this subject, but I can not figure out how to make the information in them work for me. I know that I need to go to View Code in order to insert the code, but I am not clear on what to do after that in order for the code to function, even how to exactly enter the code (should I enter into General or Worksheet, into Sheet1 or ThisWorkbook, etc..). I saw someone mention something about using now() somehow to get code to automatically run or using toolbar buttons, both of which I do not understand how to do.

Excel 2002 :: Limitations In Shared Workbook

Jul 20, 2013

I am using excel 2002 and I have found that when the workbook is shared and getting 2 or more users to open the workbook around the same time brings up a read only type prompt box for the 2nd ( and 3rd) user when the book hasn't fully opened for the 1st user/is still fully opening. Is this a limitation within excel or is there a way around this for example via vb code.

I know the more data a workbook has can cause it open a lot slower but is this the same for shared mode.

Excel 2007 :: Nested Formula Limitations

Dec 29, 2011

I'm trying to do a nested formula to automatically assign a region number based on what the County is. We have 88 counties we deal with, split into 7 regions. What is the best way to go about setting up a formula to do this, so I don't have to do it manually? I believe the last time I tried doing something like this, I received an error saying that Excel didn't support a formula as big as what I was writing.

Data Validation Limitations- Shortened Formula

Jun 14, 2007

I am trying to use the validation feature to calculate a check digit and the formula is too long to put in validation. I rewrote the formula to be shorter using math features instead of text, but apparently you can't use arrays in validation. Because of certain distribution constraints, using VBA is not possible so a UDF is out. Can either of these be shortened in anyway? I am not sure if it is even technically possible to solve this problem with these constraints.

Here is the "human readable" explanation of formula:
(Accept only 10 digit numeric value.)
Example Number: 123456789-3
Digits 1,3,5,7,9 are multiplied by 2 (weighted 5)
So 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 becomes 2,2,6,4,10,6,14,8,18Weighted 5's multiplied values then have their individual digits added (ex:12=1+2=3)
So 2,2,6,4,10,6,14,8,18 becomes 2,2,6,4,1,6,5,8,9
Weighted 5's sum is added to the sum of the Nonweighted 4 digits.
So 2,2,6,4,1,6,5,8,9,3 becomes 43
Add 24 to sum.
43+24 = 67

Checksum = (10-(67 mod 10)) mod 10
(Sum round up to 10 minus sum)

Match Limitations: Not Finding Value In Cells With Alot Of Text.

Feb 9, 2007

I think Match has trouble finding a value thats within a cell containing a lot of words.

Heres the example. I'm trying to find the word "Hello world" in cell B1, in Column A.

Column A
1 Lots of Text
2 Text Text. Hello world. text text
3 Text Text

Cell B1
Hello world

Column B2

When theres only 1 sentence in Cell A2, the function works and returns 2.
However, when Cell A2 contains a few paragraphs the function returns #NA.

I don't necessarily need to use Match, if this is indeed a limitation does anyone of suggestions to work around, other than vlookup?

Copy Method Of Worksheet Class Failed

Dec 15, 2008

I am getting this error when I run the following VBA script.

Sub AutoShape3_Click()
ActiveSheet.Copy After:=Sheets(14)
End Sub
The break mode is highlighting
ActiveSheet.Copy After:=Sheets(14)
as the source of the error.

I've run this code many times before with no problem. The workbook has 48 worksheets in it. It's my understanding that Excel can handle many more worksheets, so that shouldn't be a problem.

Copy Method Of Worksheet Class Failed ..

Nov 18, 2006

I've developed an administrative package in Excel for an After School Care programme. Essentially, there are 57 Child Records. Each record is stored on its own sheet. There are four other sheets in the workbook: three hidden templates, and the front page which holds a summary of all child attendance and balances.

Up until a short time ago, invoices were created from an "Invoices.xlt" file - the program would open the file as a new book, and copy the 1st Template page out until all invoices were created. This worked fine. I've recently changed this so the Invoice template is stored within the main workbook. After I did this, we started having problems.

We can run off up to 25-35 invoices fine (32 at this stage), but eventually it hits a point where the Activesheet.Copy command fails. After this point it is impossible to copy further sheets. I CAN, however, use Insert -> Worksheet. It is only the copy function that fails.

Because it's such a strange problem, I've uploaded an example with children's names changed. It can be found on [url]

The steps to recreate the problem are simple: Open the file, select all of the children's names (from Child to Child z), and click the "Create Invoices" button at the top.

Fastest VB Method To Copy Formulas Down Large Range?

Dec 21, 2012

I have a range of purchase order rows, with the formulas stored in the first row (TemplateRow) which is hidden. The users may add any number of rows to this range, depending upon the number of different products being purchased.

'Copy the template row into the first newly inserted row
Rows(TemplateRow).Copy Destination:=Rows(insertionPoint)
'fill down from the inserted row down to the last new row
With Rows(InsertionPoint & ":" & NumberOfInsertedRows.Rows.Hidden = False
.FillDownEnd With

The problem is copying the formulas down to the new rows can take terribly long (minutes) in scenarios of thousands of products. Is there a faster method of copying down my formulas?

Error 'Method Range Of Object Global Failed' On FindNext Method

Dec 10, 2008

I'm trying to get the Find and FindNext methods to work. Column C contains serial numbers and there's a chance that a serial number might appear more than once in the column. What I'm trying to do is get Excel to find the first occurance of the serial number, find what row it's on and then see if this matches the variable 'CurRowNo' (defined earlier in the code). If it doesn't I want it to look at the other occurances of the serial number, find what row they're on and see again if it matches CurRowNo.

The variable 'EngCount is the number of occurances of the serial number (also worked out earlier in the code). I've got the code below, but I get the error 'Method Range of Object Global Failed' on the FindNext line. I have no idea what this error means or why it's happening.
