Paste Single Cell From External Source To Merged Cell In Excel?
Dec 2, 2013
I Want users to be able to copy a reference number from a an external program into excel, this works well for single cells but the cell I want them to be able to paste the information into is a merged cell and keep getting the "Data on the clipboard is not the same size and shape blah blah error". What I can do to get this information to paste? Is there some VBA that can kinda trick the cell to believe its single or when pasting it unmerges and then remerges again?
I have a large data which is placed in single cell and I want to copy it into a template which is merged cells any I'm stucked. My data is very large and I can't unmerged the destination data(they are merged vertically). So I wonder is there a way to copy a single cell in a merge cell.
I now have XL 2007 but no longer work at the same place so do not have access to the external data source. I would like to view the SQL statements that I wrote back then but keep getting error that I am not connected to external data source and so cannot see my sql statements. I have MS Query 2007.
Excel 2010. I need to place picture into one cell or one big merged cell, as a background fill. picture must resize to size of cell. must be fixed in, not in front. i still need write into that cell, so it needs to be really background.
Need to create Working order (in Excel 2007) for filling machine in my factory. Working order is changeable from day to day and the deference is product quantity. Product quantity in working order [File - Working order] is changing according to the each sales plan [7-Jan-13, 8-Jan-13] - (File Working order is Linked to the appropriate sales plan in this case - [7-Jan-13]).
Anyway, I need to change the source workbook "sales plan" from [7-Jan-13] to [8-Jan-13] by changing source workbook name in red cell [File - Working order] and not to browsing location?
All source workbooks [sales plan 7-Jan-13, 8-Jan-13]are at the same location in the same folder, only difference is the source workbook names. So, is it possible to change source workbook name (File - Working order - red cell) for all external references (File - Working order - green cells) at the same time, and avoid annoying browsing?
How I can directly write info from an external application to an Excel sheet
Actually, I'm using a special dll collection to do it, but I would need to buy the 64 version soon. Problem is I use only one function of the entire collection so I want to look on how to create it my self. Basically, it took data from my charting software and write directly to my Excel Worksheet.Cell
The goal is to have a data validation drop down list that adjusts the File.xls name portion of the external cell reference (example given below) and return the result of the cell I am searching in the new file after updating my links.
I am trying to set up an external cell refence within my workbook for example: ='[File.xls]Tab'!$C$9
When I have tried setting the equation to pull from the drop down list in cel A1 for example: ="'["&A1&"]Tab'!$C$9"
It only shows the new file path name and not the value in the new sheet--even after updating links.
I am also attempting to do this using the my network places file path instead of the letter drive in my computer.
I have a range of cells each containing a name. Based on a number that has to be entered manually I want excel to return the names concatenated in one cell. So for example:
Number of variable entered: 5
q9001 q9002 q9003 q9004 q9005 q9006 etc.
Should give me: "q9001 q9002 q9003 q9004 q9005"
I have been trying to work with formulas using IF and CONCAT functions. But so far I haven't figured out how to have excel return me the correct amount of variables for each separate number that can be entered seeing the number of variables entered can vary from 1 up to 50.
The following does paste the formula into the dynamic range, however, it doesn't move on to the next step in the code. It seems to get stuck on the last line. I let it run for 5 minutes and it still did not move to the next set of commands ...
I am using Excel 2010. I am trying to make a spreadsheet where I can type in a date (02-19-2014), and pull in box scores from a basketball website. I have everything set up so that the date is parsed into (3) cells (02 19 and 2014) so that it can easily fit into the URL:
As you can see, the month value in the URL is "02" the day value is "19" and the year value is "2014". What I want to be able to do is type in any date I want and return the box scores from that day in a new tab. I have everything done so that the new tab is automatically created and named, so my only issue is that I can't figure out how to input the day, month and year values automatically into the code for the Get External Data pull:
Code: 'Import from www.basketball-reference.com With ActiveSheet.QueryTables.Add(Connection:= _ "URL;http://www.basketball-reference.com/friv/dailyleaders.cgi?month=02&day=19&year=2014" _ , Destination:=Range("$A$1")) .Name = "dailyleaders.cgi?month=02&day=19&year=2014"
I have a worksheet with 14 columns. Column 12 is either blank or when I finish that project, from a drop down menu I pick Yes. What I am hoping for is that as soon as I hit yes the line will be cut from the first sheet labeled Open and pasted to the next available row on the second sheet labed Closed. On the first sheet that blank row is eliminated so there are no spaces and on sheet two it always looks for the next available row as to not over write any data.
Also, to make sure I am doing this right too, I would right click the tab then click view code, paste it into the window (below the drop down that says (General) click file save workbook then file close and return to excel correct? One last thing, while looking at this page it shows my worksheet I call Open is really sheet 16 and closed is really sheet 17.
I'm trying to write a macro, and the first thing I need it to do is paste a value into the currently selected cell. This value, though, will usually be multiline. So when I try to do it now, it pastes into the selected cell and the cells below it (one for each line of the pasted value). When I'm pasting manually, I avoid this by pressing F2 to edit the cell first, and then pasting. But how can I do this using a macro? Is there a type of paste command that will insert the multiline value from the clipboard into the selected cell?
I used to get data from external excel, access files and today tried to put together query to get data from CSV file. While using same source file, I have creted several queries to get data out based on criteria. For some strange reason, same structure queries that did run with excel or access as data source, does not want to work the same way with CSV files.
Here is example of non working query SQL: SELECT Vendors.Vendor, Vendors.Name, Vendors.`Name 2` FROM `Q:FinanceRapporterPSAPRaw`Vendors.csv Vendors WHERE (Vendors.Name Like '%' & ? & '%')
If I enter "London" as a criteria input, it will not work. However, if I enter "ondon" it will find me all values records whre name contains London... Seems like I need to skip first symbol when entering criteria. This is, of course, not something I would like to do.
I have a userform with a textbox and would like the user to type inside the textbox which in turn send the text typed to a cell on my spread sheet say sheet 1 cell ref A1. I am writing the following into the control source Sheet1!A1 but the control source does not except this. I am using excel 2007 .
I have a big excel sheet with number plates and attributed to them: velocity, times, dates, etc. In the second external source i have csv with another data, now without anything more than number plate & car type. I want to merge this data in the way that i would have information of car type in the excel worksheet with number plates and dates (so essentially merge the second with the first.
It's more than possible that in the second file number plates will be attributed to more than one type of car, as this process was done automatically.
I am using pivotable with access queery as the source.
When I set it I cuse that external source browse tool, but it seems to only recognize the source if the dive is the same. When I go downstairs to try on a users computer there dirive letter(K is different than my (H and it does not work.
I'im using an index - match - match formula with links to an external file.
Everything works fine until I close the source workbook. At that moment the liks break. The error I'm getting is #REF!.
I suspect the reason is that the source data are in form of an official table. I tried some formulas with data in the same workbook but outside the table and they keep working after the source file is closed.
I really want to keep the source data in a form of an official excel table.
I am importing external data to "Workbook A" from the source workbook, "Workbook B." Workbook A is set up to refresh every 15 minutes. Workbook B is shared. I am recieving an error saying either, the 'file is in use', or 'the file is locked,' depending on the senario.
Scenario 1: 1. I open A and enable data connections. 2. I try to open B, but receive the message: '(File location...) is in use. Try again later.
Scenario 2: 1. I open B. 2. I open A. 3. I go back to B to edit information. 4. When I try saving the information I get the following message: 'File is locked. Try the command again later.'
I need to be able to have A open and periodically refreshing. I also need to allow users unhindered access to B at the same time.
I have a pivot table created from a cube of data not within the file I am working in. I have created a macro that will update, but only for the specified timeframe. I have a separate worksheet within my file that will allow a manger to specify what timeframe he wants to see. Can I edit a macro to read from a source that is different than where the data is being pulled from?
I have a pivot table report connected to an external data source (OLAP cube).I want to automatically refresh the pivot table report everytime the OLAP cube data changes.
I know we can use Automatic refresh on open of workbook or time intervals after which to refresh .But i want the auto refresh to work even if the workbook is already open and there is no definite time interval after which the cube is likely to change.SO,by defining intervals for auto refresh i do not intend to waste time refreshing even if there is no change.
There are multiple pivot table reports and pivot charts connected to the same OLAP cube.
