Link Excel To Another Program - Only Showing Data / Information When Needed
Jul 3, 2014
However, I have got an Excel file which contains a lot of information. There are four sheets with large Pivot Tables.
But the thing is, the plan is to do the tables much larger, create tables which more specifically shows information. When doing so, the tables will show much more information, and therefore be much larger. It will be difficult to read and understand the tables because of the large amount of information.
What I want is to store information in, for example, another program such as Microsoft Access. There, I can put a huge amount of information and then link it to Excel, so that in Excel I only see the Access stored information when I "search" for it with y created slicers. Like, when I use my slicers and click on one category it sort out and shows me the information i want, even though it's stored in Access. It only shows it in Excel when I "ask" for it. This is what I have thought.
I have a Excel Spread Sheet which has been created, there will be 4 people in 4 different locations who will have access to this spreadsheet and will need to update/amend it through "Dropbox", my question/problem is, how can I link the 4 spreadsheets where information will be updated by one person, but will update all 4 sheets at the same time.
I have a list of names on a spreadsheet (tab 1). First name in column "A" and last name in column "B". The number of names is an unspecified amount. The number can and will change as I put in new names. On another Tab(2) in the spreadsheet I have another list of names. First name in column "A" and last name in column "B". The number is an unspecified amount that will not be the same number of names that are on the first tab(1). I need to compare the names in the 2 tabs. I need all the names from tab one that are not on tab two to be on tab 3 with all of the corresponding informtion that is on tab 1.
I imported data from another program to Excel, it is an address database. Some of the entries are all capital, some are all lowercase, some are proper. I would like to switch everything to proper. I have tried numberous times to do EXACTLY what I am reading about copy and pasting, entering the formula, designating the cells I want it to apply to. However, when I do it, nothing changes.
I have a spreadsheet that has been sent to multiple clients. I have discovered an error in a few of the cells:
1. a link between two cells is broken so the correct number is not showing up in the cell. It is a simple formula ie: =A15, that I either forgot to put in or deleted in a fit of madness. It is in the same cell on the same worksheet in the workbook.
2. A hidden column on a worksheet has a formula that sums a range of cells. I have discovered that this range of cells is wrong. This error is duplicated on a number of worksheets in the workbook. The problem is that the error is in the same column in each worksheet but not in the same row.
Each worksheet is password protected. This is done through VBA code so the passwords won't be a problem.
The clients have already started working on the spreadsheet that I sent them and I want to send them a "fix" so that the correct formula will just update the spreadsheet they already have rather than me sending a completly new one and them having to start from scratch.
I had this wonderful spreadsheet set up with columns that appear and disappear and formulas galore so that the client didn't have to do to much work and then I find these errors after it has been sent. My testers let me down but that's life.
I have set up a datasheet with information to be used in generating several pivot tables:
Column A - Our Invoice Number Comunn B - Vendor's Invoice Date Column C - Type of Vendor (Labor, PM, Subcontractor, Material, or Equipment) Column D - Vendor Name Column E - Vendor Invoice Number/Time Classification (Column C is Labor, PM, this is either Regular Time or Overtime. If Column C is Subcontractor, Material, or Equipment, the Vendor's Invoice Number is enetered.) Column F - Labor Hours Worked (Column C is Labor or PM, a value is entered, if not, formula enters "N/A") Column G - Labor Rate ((Column C is Labor or PM, vlookup value is entered, if not, formula enters "N/A") Column H - Amount Billed ((Column C is Labor or PM, formula multiplies rate by hours, if not, enter the amount of the Vendor's invoice.) Column I - Mark Up Percentage Column J - Mark Up Amount Column K - Total Amount Billed (Column H + Column J)
I need to set up a daily job sheet (like and invoice) for each date listed under Column B. For each day, I need to generate a daily job sheet showing all of that day's information. The location of the information is based on the value in Column C - Subcontractors's data go in one spot on the sheet and Labor costs go in another place.
In a particular CSV Excel file I want to populate "Description" column with a HTML template Code by merging 3 columns of HTML. The HTML has almost 20,000 characters. Now before merging and after merging when I copy paste the HTML in any cell it doesn't show all the code that I have copied. and when I merge all the 3 columns. a lot of HTML data seems to be missing. I think excel has some sort of limit and it is not allowing all these 20,000 characters merged and combined in 1 cell. I am stuck at this point and can't upload the CSV as the HTML is missing a lot of coding.
I am building automated solutions where graphs source data is based on outcome of formulas. In case of line graphs I use #N/A as result if no data is available or formula results into an error - this way the data point and data label will not be shown in the graph.
However this does not work for bar graphs - with #N/A, #DIV/0, 0 or "" the bar itself is not shown but the data label is shown (as #N/A or 0). How can I set-up my formulas so that if result is 0 or formula is in error that the graph does not display the data label.
Attached excel file shows same data in 2 charts - 1 line chart (=OK) and 1 bar chart (=not ok). The data for chart is pulled from 2 other tabs (week&month) and merged into 1 data source for graphs.
In Sheet2 I have a list of products with their description in adjacent columns such as prices and other information. Sheet1 is a MasterSheet of some of the products listed in Sheet2. So I would like to write a macro that links the information of the product from Sheet2 to Sheet1 if I type the products name in Sheet1 (MasterSheet). The list of products (Sheet2) is updated in a regular basis, so by linking the info I would just need to update Sheet2 and Sheet1 would update as well.
I've used queries for years so I know how they work, for the most part...copying data from the source and spitting it into a spread
What I am looking to do is copy the actual link information from a web page when I query that page.
In other words, there are links on a page I'm querying and I'd like not only the displaying text link, but the underlying link itself.
Example: I have a link to a project being done and query the page the project information is on. But I'd also like to later get information on the companies associated with that project. A link to the company information is on the project page.
Is there a way to extract this information via a query? Or is it going to take a php script served online or something...
I'm trying to categorise a load of expenses against their appropriate budget and sub-budgets. I've got all the budget subcategories in separate dynamic named lists each headed by the main budget name. I want to be able to select the main budget name e.g. marketing or sales etc and then see, in the next column over, only the appropriate subcategories to select from e.g pick the appropriate dynamic list (I've used dynamic lists so I have some flexibility to add new categories at a leter date).
I have a worksheet with several data validation dropdowns that each link to a series of hyperlinks. When you click the dropdown and select the hyperlink, it opens up that particular file. All of these work, except for one of the dropdowns. Even though I can see and select the names, the link is NOT activated.
Is there some obscure excel feature that I am not aware of that is preventing this one from working? Why would this be?
Scenario: I have a worksheet full of ~360 tasks. Tasks are broken down into phases, have owners, and have status'. I leverage a pivot table to easily sort my data by owner, or by status. When reviewing the pivot table with others we want to update the raw data. This entails changing worksheets and scrolling to the task in question.
I'm looking for an easier way to update the raw / original data.
Options I've tried to pursue but have come up empty: Option 1: Excel modification? Is there a setting in Excel 2007 that would allow me to change a value in my pivot table and have it propagate to the original data set (another Excel worksheet)? So far the answer seems to be "no". Is this possible?
Option 2: Hyperlink from Pivot Table to Raw data field. - I cannot create hyperlinks within PivotTable data cells. - I have used the "hyperlink()" function OUTSIDE of my pivot table, along w/ a "match()" on a key field in my pivot table to create hyperlinks back to my raw data... But this is prone to breaking. - Is there a way to enable hyperlinks from within a Pivot Table? I have seen other requests from individuals that had a pivot table with actual hyperlinks (e.g. [URL]...) and they could not 'activate' them.
Option 3: Tool Tip VBA Form w/ Link?
- If I can't create hyperlinks directly in the table, then how about a function so then when i click (mouse over?) a pivot table cell a form appears with a hyperlink back to the source data?
Option 2 and 3 Assume that there's an way to get at the underlying location of the raw data (e.g. "Pivot Table Worksheet!E10" comes from "RawData!C4". I've dug through some VBA documentation at Microsoft.com but came up empty. I know this link must exist behind the scenes - In Excel 2007 when you mouse-over a pivot table cell Excel displays: "Row - Phase - Owner - Status", which is directly out of the raw data table/worksheet. [[This was an incorrect assumption... When i looked at the pivot table tool-tip closer I realize it was just walking through my data :'( row.
What is the VBA Code to revel the source cell? If i can get at that data, (and hyperlinking can be turned on w/in the pivot table...) then I can easily write a script to walk through the pivot table and create links back to the raw data... Not a perfect solution - but it takes away the need to search through the source data for the row I want.
I am trying to access another program via Excel VBA. The idea is that, we fill out out time and attendance sheets for work on excel workbooks. But, we have to go into a terminal program to enter this information so it can be uploaded to whereever it goes.
I am able to get the Shell command to work. But, it will be riddled with sendkeys commands and application.wait. I am sure that this is not the best way to program something like this. I believe I read that for this to work that it has to be COM compliant. I don't know. The program is a Java based terminal program.
This works for me
Code: ShellExecute 1, "Open", "C:UsersPublic******lib***_core.jar" But this does not
Code: CreateObject "C:UsersPublic******lib***_core.jar" It gives me a Run-time error 429, ActiveX component can't create object.
i am creating a break track program using excel with vba. My excel file contains the data for all employees. I have a Userform where the user will enter his employee ID which will pull up his data. I have 3 option button in which the user choose what time he would start his break. Once the user click the start button, the time he started his break will be placed in a cell and a dialog box will appear stating the time the user needs to be back. Once the user click the end button, the time he ended his break will be place on a cell as well and then it will show a message "on time" if the user came on time else if the user was overbreak, the overbreak amount of time will be displayed. I have attached my sample file together with some vba code.
I have created a userform that allows input of information and then deposits the information on a specific sheet. I am looking for a way to have that information not only deposited on the specific sheet it is already set to but also to another sheet based on a selection made from a combo box.
For the last half dozen years I have been using a simple Excel table to sort Christmas mix cds. The headings are: song, artist, album, year, and songwriter. This year after adding the additions, I tried to sort and it would not work. The automatic sort stopped at the end of the previous years' work and did not pick up the additions. When I try to include this year's additions, the sort grays out. I'm sure it's something simple. Adding additions to my brother's and daughter's lists worked fine.
If A1 is between .81 and 3, AND if B1 is Adult, then C1 is Priority Mail If A1 is greater than 3, AND if B1 is Adult, then C1 is FedEx Ground If A1 is Less than .81, AND if B1 is Adult, then C1 is First Class Mail If A1 is Less than .81, AND if B1 is Child, then C1 is Hold for Inspection
There will be a list of ~45 conditions that will populate a specific value in C1. Can this be done? If so, how?
I am currently looking for a front end program to access multiple excel files at once. In a nutshell, I work for a company that uses subcontractors. Each subcontractor is graded in about 7 different performance categories. I receive daily excel files that give us the results for each category. I get separate files for each category.
What I do right now is use a master excel file. Every day I take each file I receive from our parent company and add it to the master file. I have a huge excel file that has a separate tab for each performance category. Then I have a "Report" tab where I use various formulas to summarize a sub's performance over a certain date range.
Essentially, the report tab is just a neat and concise way to display the stats of an individual sub, an office, a region or the whole company. I use tons of VLOOKUP and COUNTIF(S) formulas to look over the hundreds of lines of data and bring back the stats. It works but it is just not very efficient as I get hundreds of new lines of data every day.
I need identifying correct title and corresponding company name. For this I need a UDF which looks for first occurrence of title having event or marketing or meeting word in data and if found the remove other titles and company names already separated with "/".

Excel 2010, I have the following list (showing part of it):
Name T-Shirt Sizes Nathan S
The aim of the list is to see what Sizes each and every person needs and then count how many T-Shirts are required for that particular size. The list is over a 100 entries long so counting it manually isn't really an option as it's time consuming as well as errors might arise.
Thus, I've been trying to use the IF statement with the following logic but to as no avail
IF Size in Column is XS Add 1 to a particular Cell IF Size in Colum is S Add 1 to a particular Different Cell
and so on for the other sizes...kind of like a counter for a for-do-loop.
We have our system set up with 2 folders one with blank forms and the other with these forms filled out and completed (records), is their a trick to removing the data from a completed form fast with out removing tables and text used to make the forms questions? If I could do this it would save time from opening in the blank forms folder then saving in the records folder.
Sheet1 contain daily input table which as follows:
Code: Namesalary Bonus Check XX1000 2 FN XY900 1 NA YY1100 2 FN ZY1500 3 DP ZZ1250 2 FN AA1050 2 NA AZ 950 1 FN
Sheet2 have table where all the information is saved. So we can say this is database of sheet1. Which store every day information of sheet 1.
Code: SALARY DATABASE Name SalaryBonus
What I want to do is that ---it copy all the data which fullfile condition FN and move to the Sheet 2 which is salary database. Two important things to check is that. IF name already exists in the sheet 2 then it replace old info with the new one. Second thing is to sort the whole table(Salary database-sheet 2) according to A-Z (Name column). I use office 2003. I hope I provide all the information.
