Live Editing From Multiple Computers

Dec 5, 2007

Running excel 2002, windows vista (some machines on network are running xp). I have a spreadsheet that I want to be able to edit from all computers on the network so that it shows real time changes on all PC's.

It would be like using google docs, I can't use google docs because my file size is 2.5MB and it is too much for it.

Multiple Live Feed / Data

Aug 28, 2009

I have set an excel spreadsheet set up to update live data from a URL every 5 minutes. However I am wanting to do try and save a bit of time if possible.

Basically I am monitoring horses bought on a game website. Each horse has the same URL except for the number at the end which goes up in 1 increments. The URL is already set up and when the horse is bought it changes from being blank to having the horses details etc.

At the minute I am able to autofill cells with each uinique URL using fill, then series menu. This is so I dont have to manually enter each URL, as hundreds may be bought each day so it would take too long to do this.

My question is this, am i able to have a automatic series linked to the 'data from web' function in data tab, instead of having to manually adjusting each URL for each individual horse.

I have designed a live calendar and am trying to highlight selected dates from a column in the calendar. I am able to select single cell in the column and highlight the date in the calendar, But am unable to select multiple dates in the column and highlight multiple dates in the calendar using conditional formatting.

Eg: calender dates are from B5:H9 and multiple dates are in column J10:J13

J column
J10 7/10/2013

Editing Multiple Cells Using A Loop

Nov 29, 2012

I am attempting to print each letter of a string in a specified cell individually in different cells. For example, if I input the word "Hello" in cell B1, it would automatically print "H" in A1, "e" in A2, "l" in A3, etc.

I currently have this;


Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim Count As Integer
Dim Explosion As Integer
Dim Kaboom
Dim EndCounter As Integer
Dim StrTarg


However, it does not seem to loop. It simply prints the first letter of the string inputed (In cell K3 in my case), into cell A1, and then stops. Surely it should continue to loop around untill Count is equal to the length of the string in K2.

Set A Range For Multiple Functions/Editing Help

Jul 31, 2009

Is there a way to SET a RANGE that can be used for further editing without the need to specify the range each time for each function to be perfomed?
I have a pile of Data, with a Calendar date and 4 columns of data for each date.

I want to make a summary for each year separately of one column of data (Total PL). How can I set a condtion that it will output a summary of data for a given year, e.g. 1990?

Even more useful might be setting up a table for each year, where I will be able to perform easy function like SUM, MAX, MIN but it will use data only from the specific Year in each row.
- Is there a way to make it simpler, but not having to specify the RANGE for each Year for each Function?

Editing Existing Text In Multiple Cells Macro

Aug 6, 2009

i have a list of about 20,000 phone numbers that I need to edit.

all start
01 123456
01 123457
01 123458 etc

I am trying to create a macro that will change them to

+001123458 Etc

However, no matter what I try it always comes out as


F2 Copy and paste is going to take me forever, and I am sure that there must be a quicker way to do this.

this is my first time creating macros so am completly lost.
I want to keep the text that is in the cell that I am editing, just add the country code and delete the space.

Calendar Not Working On All Computers?

Dec 4, 2013

This is a shared worksheet. When I look at it I can manipulate the calendar, but for others it is just a non-interactive image.

I'm sure this has something to do with them not having this control in their computer, but is there a work around?

VBA HTML Not Running On All Computers?

Jul 23, 2014

So I have this code I'm working on for my deptarment that goes to a website inputs data , clicks run and downloads the csv file to the worksheet. It works just fine on my PC and on my profile on the computers the other department uses. We are both using same versions of windows, excel , and IE. When i have someone from the other department run the macro it opens the website but never enters the data into the fields despite the site being the exact same coding as when i'm logged in.


When this code is ran by a member of the other department it just opens the website inputs nothing and doesn't press the RUN button on the website.

What setting or anything. I verified that both PC's VBA references in are there and no "Locations are missing paths" .

Collect Data From Different Computers

Dec 30, 2006

I bought 32 laptops out of my own moeny (used) to get my 5th grade students into the 21st century. I have several programs working on these laptops which output data in text and xls files. I would like to either:

1. Poll the files on each workstation at the end of the day and bring the data into excel (I have worked in VBA). Computers are named Comp01 to Comp33.

2. Better: have the workstations save the files to my NAS device so they are on one hard drive.

I would like to keep it simple (I'm a teacher not a good programmer.) Is the "Import External Data" the way to go for the text files? Can a macro go out and loop through the 32 laptops using that or some other add-in?

What code can I write to make this happen?

Copy Protection :: On Different Computers

Jan 28, 2008


Private Sub Workbook_Open()
****'** MsgBox Environ("ComputerName")
****If Environ("ComputerName") UCase("Authorized PC Name") Then
********MsgBox "Sorry No Go!" & vbCrLf & "Wrong computer!"
********'** Do your thing here
********MsgBox "Proceed"
****End If
End Sub

Reading the thread in the link above, It seems as if one could limit access to a workbook. I tried this code on a dummy workbook, I have a few question...

1. Why am I getting "Sorry, No Go. Wrong Computer" when I just put the code in the dummy worksheet for the first time?

2. Can this code be modified to capture my clients computer information to restrict the workbook useage only on one computer and prevent unauthorized distribution to other computers?

3. Can this code run automatically everytime the workbook is open?

Size UserForm For Different Computers

May 14, 2008

I've created a userform that will be used by multiple users. I'm not finished coding it yet but when I tried to work on it on my computer at home it did not look the same as it did at work. I tried it on several other computers and experienced the same problem.

It appears that the inserted company logo is zoomed in and the some of the label text has wrapped and is not visible.

I've attached a screen shot of the form on my work computer and the way it looks on other computers.

Allow Use Of Workbook On Specific Computers Only

Jun 6, 2008

I have a workbook with sensitive company information. I need a way to validate the computer the workbook is being opened on and then close the workbook if it is not a confirmed workstation.

The file is already password protected on opening, each worksheet and the workbook is protected, and the VBA code is protected. We just need to take it one step further.

Is there a way to check a registry entry or the computers MAC address on workbook_open?

I have found code to close the workbook without saving which I would use after a message box stating "You do not have permission to access this file."

If someone has their macro security level set to high or very high, that prevents my code from running. How can I make this work on any computer no matter what their macro settings are?

Excel 2010 :: Print Area Changes On Same File Between 2 Different Computers?

Jun 6, 2013

I have a technician who sits a desk over, has the same brand of computer running the same Windows 7 and the same Excel 2010, but when he opens a particular file the page layout or print area seems to change so that the sheet is partially cut off. All his options appear the same. I can open this file on other computers and it seems to be fine...

I notice that the Margins under Custom Margins are different and this would explain the problem but not why it occurs. It's a file I created and saved and he opened. Why would the margins change? Is this one of the Microsoft cross platform / program deals where if he changes the print set-up or page layout in WORD for example, it changes them in EXCEL?

Protect Excel Files To Open Only On Designated Computers?

Jul 16, 2010

Is it possible to protect an excel file such that it will open up only on designated computers (identified by the computer name or some unique hardware identification like MAC address etc)?I was wondering if the VB editor can be used to do the same.

Let me put my requirement in detail:

I have an excel file "123" created in one computer (named=A). On this computer this file can be opened by anyone.I write a code such a way that, this particular file when copied on to other computers say (B,C & D) would open up as usual. But on computer E or any other computer, it should not open.

I cannot use password protect feature on the file as "n" number of users will be accessing this file on those designated computers. I was finding few of the clients copying the files on their personal drives or email without proper consent.If its possible, I would like to employ the same on few of my word (.doc) files as well.

Application.FileSearch Not Returning Results On Some Pre 2007 Computers

Feb 11, 2008

Found code to find files and return results.. edited to my liking(barely.. i have no VBA knowledge).. it works on the PC I use. This is intended to be on a shared folder across a network for others to use, and it is not returning any results on the other PCs. This computer has Office 2003.. the rest have 2000. I can NOT figure out the problem. I have read in searches that Application.Filesearch is not reliable, but I do not know how to change it to any other type of coding

How To Capture The Value From A Running Live Value

I have a cell (for example, "A1") which is inserted with a WINROS formula to retrieve some data into my spreadsheet. And it is running live at all time.

Actually, I can't think of any formulas to capture the value from cell "A1" to "B1". Because I do not want the value that I captured into cell "B1" running live. I just want the value "B1" fixed after captured.
