Link Pop-up On Cell Select To Cell

I'm hoping to hover my mouse over a cell to display text as popup. This text is linked to a cell and is dynamic.

I'm only wanting this feature to display info (in the popup) not link to a website

Currently I've dodged my way around the issue by using a hyperlink for the sole purpose of taking advantage of its hover popup feature.

The problem is that a hyperlink popup is limited to 255 characters so i can't display much text.

Is there is any VBA code or add-in's that take advantage of the mouse cursor position to display a text popup?

Kind of like the Comment feature but for dynamic use.

Link A Cell To Another Cell On Same Worksheet Using A Formula
Is it possible to link a cell e.g. A10 that has a time value in it (there is a formula in this cell that puts in the time value) to another cell in a range of cells e.g. B1:B1000 that has the same time value?

I know someone out there knows how to do this.

Link To Another Cell
I would like to have a link in a merged set of cells that puts the insertion point to another cell. Scenario: In cell k30, the user puts in the amount of credit card debt a individual has, and scripts the user based on that information. Later on, they get a more accurate running total of the amount of debt and need to change the amount in k30 for an accurate quote. After ther running total, in cell j172(a merged box for instructions) i instruct the user to be sure to enter the new total in cell K30.

1. Is there a way to put a button or a link that would put the insertion point back up to K30 automatically, but allow the user to change it themselves and not change it automatically?

Link Image To Cell
In Excel, I have a sheet for each team that I manage. Each sheet lists the team members and displays their picture below their names. Some people are on multiple teams/sheets.

I have a master list with everybody's name and picture that I copy and paste the pictures from when putting a team together. This has become a very tedious process.

Is there a way I can type the person's name on a team sheet and have their picture automatically appear below their name? I don't know if this can be done with some kind of lookup or if it will involve VB. I tried making the picture the background of an Autoshape or comment, but I could not figure out how to dynamically change the picture based on the name in a cell.

Use A Cell Value In A Address Link...
I have is a summary worksheet with two columns. One column is for Project ID number and the other is an address link to a specific cell in the worksheet corresponding to the Project ID. Perhaps the best way to explain this is by giving an example:

Project ID (Column 1)

Balance (Column 2)
='C:Financial Sheets[00-111.xlsx]Phase_21'!$H$1

As you can see the spreadsheets are named after the Project ID number. What I would like to do, if possible, is instead of typing in the name of the spreadsheet for each project in column 2 (Balance), I could somehow reference the cell value in column 1 (Project ID). Something like this:

Project ID (Column 1)

Balance (Column 2)
='C:Financial Sheets["A2".xlsx]Phase_21'!$H$1..........

Lookup Cell Fed Via A DDE Link
I am trying to build a stock watchlist in excel 2007 with a dynamic link to a DDE server (paid for).There is no add-in or plug-in, I just CTL ALT & drag each code from a watchlist in the program I am using and place it in a cell, however can only choose one data field at a time. There are 14 data fields and over 150 codes in my list which makes 2100 cells. (My guess is about 3 days work)

I would like to just enter the stock code in say column A (A3) and with each DDE data field (e.g. lastprice, open, cose, high etc) entered in subsequent columns have it lookup the stock code in cell A3 and return the correct value based on the code in column A, rather than entering each cell individually.

Is it possible to write a macro or vba code to create the cell formula so I can just fill down and save myself 3 days work?

The DDE server I am using is formatted like this:




I thought I might be able to do something like the following, but it doesn't seem to work.


Note: The DDE server can only be accessed while the other program is running and is password protected

Link Cell Contents Across Worksheets?
I work for an IT company who build their own PC's. And we use a simple Excel 2003 spreadsheet to piece-together and price-up PC's for retail, I've attached an example of the spreadsheet for you to see. It uses basic formulas so we can see at-a-glance things like VAT figures, margin, profit etc. Each PC we sell is contained within one Excel file, and each PC has it's own Workbook tab.

The problem I want to solve is whenever we change a component or price, we have to do each system manually, which gets very repetetive and time consuming. What I'd like to be able to do is change the price of, let's say, the motherboard, and have the price be reflected across each of the PC's using that same motherboard on each seperate tab. This same system would apply when we change a product name, product ID etc.

Drop Down Box To Relatively Update Cell Link
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 $$)?

Drop Down Cell Link Reference
I have 6 worksheets that are identical cosmetically. Each has the same drop down box list with the same name (dropdown1), however the cell link on each sheet is different. (ie. sheet1 dropdown1 cell link refers to a sheet ' lookup' cell $K$1, sheet2 dropdown1 cell link refers to sheet 'lookup' cell $K$2, etc.) I have the same command button in each sheet that performs the same task so I wanted to keep one module for all 6. Problem is I set a variable to the cell link in the code, and this has to be changed.

DropDownValue = Sheets("Lookup").Range("K1").Value

Is there any way I can set this variable using a property of the drop down list?

DropDownValue = dropdown1.celllink

I don't want to create 5 more duplicate modules just to change this one bit of code (I only use it this time in the code!). If there is no way to get the cell link value of the drop down, could I possibly put a worksheet change event on the lookup sheet to populate a certain static cell with the value of the last cell change?

Update Link With File Name In Cell
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.

Link Reference From A String In A Cell
I need to have a link to data in another file. The file will be in the same directory, however, the name of the file I need to link increments daily. I have a string being generated already with the name of the file I want to link to. I can easily add a cell reference to that string, but how do I use that string value in a link? Or - how do I use quick'n'easy VBA to snatch the required cell's data?

Required data is in the file "production 060723.xls", in sheet "Daily Production", in cell "E2". Current file has a string being generated in a cell:
"\server1production dataproduction060723.xls"

The following day, the required data will be in a file called "production 060724.xls", same sheet, same cell. The current file's string data will also update to reflect the needed file. I know that similar questions have been asked here - but none that I saw in my search seemed quite what I need. Even if someone can direct me to the right thread, that would be great.

Hide Columns Based On A Cell Link
I need to hide columns in a spreadsheet without using the hide/unhide columns option. I found an article which suggested setting up a combobox from the forms toolbar, this is populated by an input range and linked to a cell for a numeric value. The article although using a macro to hide rows suggested this code

Private Sub ComboBox1_Change()

If ComboBox1.Value = "A" Then
ActiveSheet.Range("1:3").EntireRow.Hidden = True
ActiveSheet.Range("4:6").EntireRow.Hidden = False
ElseIf ComboBox1.Value = "B" Then
ActiveSheet.Range("1:3").EntireRow.Hidden = False
ActiveSheet.Range("4:6").EntireRow.Hidden = True
End If
End Sub

I want to amend this code so that when the number in my linked cell changes the various columns are hidden.

For example if the cell link number = 1 hide columns e to az if the cell link number = 2 hide columns d and f to az etc.

I have had varying success with amending this code to entirecolumn.Hidden and changing the Combobox1. to dropdown1. but am unable to get it to work, I also stupidly deleted the code that was partially working and am now unable to remember what I'd done.

Formula To Dicate Link Between Checkbox And Cell
I'm creating a spreadsheet which will have a grid of hundreds of check boxes (used to record progress on a project). In order to use the value of the check box in calculations, I'm linking each checkbox with another cell. So, if the checkbox is in cell F10, then i might link it with cell AF10, which is where the TRUE and FALSE indicators are.

If I copy the last row (which has checkboxes--let's call it row 99), and copy it below to expand the grid, the check boxes in the new row are still linked with row 99 cells (i.e., all the new check boxes in column F are still linked with AF99). So, presently I'm having to go through and manually re-link each pasted check box to a new cell.

Is there a way, using something along the lines of the INDIRECT function, where I can have a formula dictating what cell each checkbox is linked with, so that when I copy and paste a large number of these, they automatically point to the new cell (such that, F99's check box points to AF99, but if I copy this F99 check box into cell F115, then it would automatically be linked with cell AF115)?

Link Spin Button To Active Cell
I've got a problem with the used spinbuttons. The code I used (see below)allows the user to choose a column (with the option button(A,B,C,D,E) in which changes would be made and than changes the value of the given cell according to the name of the spinbutton (which specifies the row). This forces me to use about 80 spinbuttons in a single sheet, and the whole workbook comprises of over 30 sheets pumping the whole file to a size of over 3 MB. To reduce the file size I need a code that would link a master spinbutton (one per sheet) to any active cell (the "just clicked one")

Private Sub sel(ByRef Column As String)
For Each obj In Application.ActiveSheet. OLEObjects
If obj.progID = "Forms.SpinButton.1" Then
obj.LinkedCell = Column & (Val(Mid$(obj.Name, 11)) + 3)

Next obj

Add Hyperlinks To Range & Link Based On Cell Value
I have a spreadsheet of various works-in-progress items, the first three columns of which refer to relevant documents, effectively the request, the estimate and the work order, i.e. RXXX-0001, EXXX-0001 & WXXX-0001.

So the text is entered as above (without file extension as it's also our reference number), and I'd like each to be linked to their respecive .doc files, which are held in different locations, i.e. \servernamefolderRequests or Estimates or Work Orders
e.g. \servernamefolderRequestsRXXX-0001.doc

There's a backlog of over 300 items (so 900 links) so I don't want to go through and manually create the links and as each day can see over 12 items being created it'd be much easier to have it done at the click of a button

Most of the solutions I've seen involve creating a new cell/button with the hyperlink in it - I just want to effectively "right click, create hyperlink" but with the cell contents inserted as the file name (adding ".doc") and with correct folder name too.

FYI the cells are adjacent to one another e.g. A1, A2 & A3 so the selection can be Offset (0,1) for the estimates and work orders.

I don't mind if it ends up being a case of running the macro on each line - some links have already been created already.
