Link Formulas Don't Update Automatically

Sep 10, 2006

I have 2 WorkBook, Division.xls and Department.xls. The Sheet1 in the Department is linked & getting the values from Sheet1 in the Division & works fine. But if there is a change in Division workbook, its not affecting here immediately. When i close the Department.xls and open again, i can find the latest values. I thought the links to the other sheets or workbooks will be updated when i press the save button. So I used the SendKeys "^S" in the VBA. But it fails. Is there any way to mention through VBA code to update the recent values to the Department workbook from Division.

Update Link Between Sheets Automatically And In Sequence

Nov 1, 2013

I have a excel workbook with One Master Sheet.

The data entered in the master sheet is automatically updated in the sub worksheets through direct links created . Each sub worksheet is a branch of organization. almost 100 branches are there.

The data is entered for all the branches in the Master Sheet at different periods continuously which is to be kept as such.

For example In first day 10th, 15th branch data may be entered in master sheet first and second row, which is getting automatically updated in the respective branch worksheets. But the problem is when the data is entered for any branch( for example 6th branch) in 5th row of Master sheet, in the respective 6th branch sheet also, it is updated only in 5th row only, leaving the first four rows blank. But i want the updation in the branch sheet continuously without any blank rows.

For updation i have used the simple direct link between the cells of Master worksheet and Branch sheets.

How to get the updation in branch worksheets while entering the data in Master sheet without any blank rows.

Automatically Update Formulas For Adjacent Cells?

Jun 6, 2014

I am copy/pasting a new column of data (F). I have three formulas MIN,AVE,MAX watching each row in the columns "=MIN(B2:E2)" or example. When I insert the new column F, the formulas give me the "Formula Omits Adjacent Cell" warning. I don't want to turn off the warning; I want to know if there is a way for the formulas to automatically include the new data? Do I need a Worksheet Event for this?

Making Formulas That Automatically Update When Adding Cells

Jun 9, 2014

I want to make an excel workbook for a client. What I want to do with it is make a set of instructions telling them to add or insert as many rows in specific categories I have made for them. These options differ depending on the different duties performed. There will be an associated number (value for that duty, ex. duty might be Janitor and the number would be like 5 dollars per hour, so on and so forth), I want to make it to where there is a code that notices more rows and adds more IF statements or whatever statements are needed to keep adding those extra options. These values are connected to a data validation list that drives the if statement.

Link Formula / Update Formula Automatically

Jul 31, 2006

Iím working on quite huge spreadsheets. The same formula will be used on more than 30 sheets.

So far if I have to change the formula in one cell I have to go to each sheet and change it manually (which is quite boring and time consuming).

Iím wondering if itís possible to reference all the formulas on the sheet to one sheet (which some kind of a master sheet with all the formulas).

I can copy the formula with the ďPast SpecialĒ function but the function is not updating if I change the formula on the main sheet.

So is it possible to link it and that itíll be updated automatically when Iím changing the formula on the main sheet?

Automatically Update Only With Numbers (ifnumber-update And Go To Next Cell)

Oct 18, 2013

Let's say that in column A I have numbers,"Yes" and "No". I want in column B to have only the numbers from column A, in the same order without any empty ranges, and everytime I add in column A a new number, column B to update automatically with that number. Let's have an example:

Yes 12
12 13
No 10

And if I want to add in column A:
Yes 12
12 13
No 10
13 25
No 15

So the column be will update automatically. I already tried =IFERROR(INDEX($A$1:$A$10,SMALL(IF(ISNUMBER($A$1:$A$10),ROW($A$1:$A$10)),ROWS(B$1:B1))-ROW($A$1)+1),") but using this many times get's my file very heavy and the excel is working slow.

Autofill; Copy Down It Doesnít Automatically Update The Cell References Because It Want To Update Them By Column Number Instead Of Row Number

Dec 11, 2008

I have a basic formula =C17+'Asset Depreciation 2008 Onwards'!C24, and I want to copy it down just using the drag function. Problem is that the second reference range of cells are in rows and hence when I copy it down it doesnít automatically update the cell references because it want to update them by column number instead of row number. IE I want it to display =C17+'Asset Depreciation 2008 Onwards'!
D24, instead of C25. Do you know if there is any way of telling Excel that I want it to increase the column number by 1 every time, instead of the row number for this part of the formula?

Drop Down Box To Relatively Update Cell Link

May 20, 2007

I made drop down form controls that specify yes/no as to whether I have the documents I need for a project- when I selected yes the same row will turn grey. Each form control is set to move/resize with its cell, so it stays on top of the cell. I have the drop down form set to cell link to the cell below it in the form control settings. So it would be over cell A1 and the value of 0/1/2/ would be entered into A1. However whenever I copy the cell/row, the new form control drop down does not update its cell link by relative positioning, the new cell link is also A1 Ė thus both drop downs are linked together. I do NOT put absolute referencing $A$1 so I donít know why the new copied forms donít update and point to B1?

Why doesnít my drop down menu update its cell link position when I copy and paste the cell it is attached to? Can form controls update their cell links via relative references (that is without the $$)?

Update Link With File Name In Cell

Jul 14, 2007

I'm sure this is an easy one but it's unfortunately beyond me. I have a update links formula in which I would like for it to update with the name of the file being in a cell. Example:

The file name is Week20.xls

Cell A1 has the value of Week20.xls using a formula (="Week" & A2 & ".xls")

Currently I have it by looking at the actual file location like this: ='C:Documents and SettingsMy DocumentsWeekly Sales6 Sales Comparisons[Week20.xls]Daily Comparisons'!$I$4

But rather then pointing directly to the file path I want it to update by the name of the file in A1. So I'm sure its something as simple as replacing [Week20.xls] with some formula but I don't know what that one is.

Update Link Without Open Resource File

May 31, 2006

I'm using Excel 2002.

I have one workbook with data linked to another CSV file (It's about 40000rows). When I open the workbook, "THis workbook contains one or more links that cannot be updated." message appears and asks me to open csv file if I wanna to update (although I set full path for links in cells). I wonder if there's any way to update link without opening csv file? Or Excel can not update link without openning the resource file?

Import External Data. Update Link For New Database

Dec 12, 2006

In an Excel sheet i have set up a link to an Access database query (select query) using the Import External Data method. The data is store sales by week, arranged in a pivot table layout (stores as rows, weeks as columns). As time goes by, the database will be updated for new weeks sales, and i would like to refresh the data and the new weeks automatically appear in the Excel sheet, in subsequent columns.

At the moment, the only way i can seem to get this to work is to open up the link in MSQuery and manually select the new weeks from the Access query. i have set the parameters to overwrite cells with new data rather than insert new data. i'm sure there is a way to do this, as it feels like it would be a common thing to want, but i can't seem to find an answer anywhere!

Worksheet Link Search And Fill Formulas

Jul 18, 2008

I want to create a spreadsheet table of values that are linked other spreadsheets, a condesnsed version... I am not a total amateur and I understand the world of excel links....

However the problem lies in the fact that the source files change format every day, what i need is a formula for each cell (i know...) that can:

1. Firstly find column and row heading titles by looking for part of the title i.e. for a title like 'Occupation' i need a non case sensitive search for 'Occu'.

2. Once colum and row are found, return the intesecting value.

The formulas are needed so all I will have to do, after this is finished, is update the source files and the relevant numbers will be found automatically.

Im sure this is something that can be done with a clever array formula, setup to recognise column and row intersections based on positve returns on search variables, however this one is just outside my capabilities....

Disable Calculate Formulas That Link To Other Files?

Oct 21, 2011

I got a workbook that is linked to many external workbooks and it is very slow to calculate, so I work it with manual calculation and only calculate the sheet (SHIFT+F9) when necessary. To work with this workbook I need to be able to make faster manual calculations. I have tried many solutions and the only one that seems to work, is to work without the links to the other files (by breaking the links and turning the formulas to values). The problem with this solution is that I can't lose the formulas. I think that must be a way to calculate the sheet without calculating the cells that got a reference to the external files. Only the formulas in the current sheet.

Automatic Link Update WITHOUT Prompt When File Opened Not Working (XL2003)

Jul 6, 2006

Despite setting the "Edit/Links/Startup Prompt/Don't display the alert and update links" option numerous times, my workbook still prompts me to update links every time I open it. The option seems to be set okay (it is preset whenever I go into the "Edit/Links/Startup Prompt" dialog), but it doesn't seem to affect the workbook's startup behaviour. The workbook contains a ComboBox control that is initialized with customer names from another workbook, which is included in the References for this main workbook.

I am using Excel 2003 (from Office Pro 2003) under Windows XP (SP1). I believe this used to work without the prompt when I was working on this app last fall (I'm not sure, as my memory of specific behaviours back that far is fuzzy). However, it has been persistently prompting ever since I started working on this app again this spring/summer. Was there perhaps a bad fix to Office 2003 (that I automatically applied) that broke this feature?

Formulas Will Not Update / Recalculate

Jun 14, 2006

When I have a column of data, say reference A1 to A9 with a formula beneath it in A10 being that the formula is = SUM(A1:A9) when I update any of the data in A1 to A9 the figure in A10 does not update. The only way to get it to update is to click in A10 where the formula is and then click in the formula bar and press enter; the formula seems to recalculate after this and it works or you need to save it and it works. It should work right after any change in the data being added.

Refresh / Update Formulas

Feb 27, 2008

I have created a macro to insert a template worksheet (qm.xlt) into a workbook (wb.xls).

Sub Test_InsertXlt()
Sheets.Add Type:="qm.xlt", After:= ActiveWorkbook.Sheets(ActiveWorkbook.Sheets.count)
End Sub

The template has cells which contain formulas which lookup values in another sheet in the workbook (configData).

For example: template cell F20 has the formula


Once the template worksheet is inserted into the workbook, its cell values remain "#Name", which corresponds to a "Error 2029" in the code.

If I manually edit the cell (F2) and then hit 'Enter', the cell value is updated correctly. My question is :how can I do this via code/macro?

Link Data In Worksheets - Add / Deduct Formulas As Criteria Are / Aren't Met?

Dec 31, 2012

What can I do to link my worksheets together? I need the months to link from january to december.

I'm trying to come up with a system to maintain attendance of employees. How do I come up with a rolling system to add and deduct the points as their attendance changes? The goal of each employee is to have the least amount of points as possible, because he/she will be penalized once they receive a certain amount of points.

Let's say that Jane was hired in October. She has accumulated 10 points by December from tardies, call-ins, etc. By the end of January, she has perfect attendance; she is awarded half a point to be taken off toward her 10, giving her 9.5. In February, there is a day she does not show up, so now her total goes up to 12.5 (3 pointed added because of NCNS-no show no call). In March and April, she has perfect attendance, so now her total is 11.5. (half a point allowed for each month with perfect attendance)

By rolling, I mean a formula that will calculate continuously over month after month and have the points roll over month to month.

How To Automatically Change The Link To A New File

Dec 21, 2012

Basically, at month end, my company will create a new folder with the name as YYYY_MM (e.g. 2012_11). In this folder, a new file will be created as: earnings_YYYY_MM (e.g. earnings_2012_11).

What I want is to automatically update the link to the most recent file: earnings_YYYY_MM, whenever it is available. For example, next month there will be a new file earnings_2012_12 created in the new folder 2012_12, then the new file will be linked with.

Use Cell Value To Automatically Generate Link

For non-blank cells in the range C11:C65536, I want to have a hyperlink automatically generated (in the same cell), using the cell value as a relative variable in the link itself. One intended use for this is to populate the range with stock symbols, and have it generate hyperlinks to the following address:

Manually Update Cells With Formulas And Macros

Sep 2, 2008

why I must update all cells, with formulas, manually after I do something with the workbook. I'll try to make an example.

If I make a macro that enters =sum("F1:F10") it says #NAME? when its done, but if I dubbleclick it and press enter it calculates the cell like its supposed to. I've tried to press alt + ctrl + F9, but that doesnt work.

Is there a command to dubbelclick the entire workbook and then press enter if you know what I mean?
