Remove All Connections?
I've got a little program which uses webqueries to import data from anywhere between10 and 200 web pages. It's working pretty well, but I need a way to clear out the residual connections via the code.
The part of the macro which imports the data was simply recorded and very slightly modified. I've included it below... but what I'd like to do once the data has been imported is delete the connection.

DB Connection Lockout Other DB Connections
I have a series of external database connections that I run in Excel, connecting to a Server based DB and running some SELECT statements. (ingres). We may have up to dozen of client machines accessing the ingres DB at any time. All is good at this point but when excel goes to INSERT some calculated data back to the main database, it appears that my Excel spreadsheet connection is locking the database when it connects, keeping other people from using their client connections.
first question: Does anyone know if the connection excel uses to run sql statements via external database connection will indeed prevent other users from connecting to the main database?
second question: if so, is there a setting or something that can make excel more "passive"?
Access Databse Connections In VBA
From within VBA I need to open a database connection and issue a select and store the results in my spreadsheet. The issue is that I only JUST learned that you can do this and I dont know where I can look for instructions. Incase it matters, I am trying to connect to a Sybase DB. I have used perl, c# and a little bit of Java to do this but never from with in Basic (let alone basic within excel!)
Editing Data Connections In 2003
I have a workbook with multiple worksheets and over 25 Data Connections using MS Query to connect to different tables in an SQL Server database.
The problem is that the SQL Server database is now being moved to a different server. The database name and the schema of the tables will be unchanged. Only the server name needs to be changed from XXXXX to YYYYY.
I have been unable to find a way to successfully edit the data connections in Excel 2003. A web search produced one potential option. However, that did not work for me very well. Thought the code is designed to cycle through all tablequeries and pivotqueries, the change is only made to one of the data connections. Here is the option I tried:
Note that it is very easy to edit data connections in Excel 2007. So I also tried opening the .xls file in Excel 2007. I used the Data Connections button under the Data tab in the ribbon and was successful in editing the connections to point to the new server. However, the graphs used to display the queried data behave weird. The "format axis" settings and chart sizes change. In general, default display settings for charts seems to differ between Excel 2003 and 2007.
I used Excel 2007 to only edit the data connections and saved the workbook in the original .xls format
Defining Column Reference With ADO Connections Using VBA
It extracts Employee ID's and there Names from our database and lists them in columns A:C
What I want to do is list the ID's manually and get it to extract only the Names for the ID's I listed in Column A...
I am not sure how to amend this code to look at ID's listed in column A instead of extracting the whole database.
I know I need to add a "WHERE ID =" clause in the SQL but not sure how to say WHERE ID = A1, A2, etc.
Remove Non-alpha Characters From Alphanumerics With Option To Remove Numbers
I have found a very useful UDF for removing non-alpha characters from strings. (See below, Credit for posting to Stanley D Grom - Ozgrid post ´Removing Non-alpha Characters From Text´).
Private Function RemoveCharacters(InString As String) As String
Dim intLoopCounter As Integer
Dim intStringLength As Integer
Dim intASCIIVal As Integer
intStringLength = Len(InString)
InString = LCase(InString)
For intLoopCounter = 1 To intStringLength
intASCIIVal = Asc(Mid(InString, intLoopCounter, 1))
If intASCIIVal >= 97 And intASCIIVal <= 122 Then
RemoveCharacters = RemoveCharacters + Mid(InString, intLoopCounter, 1)
1. Could the UDF be modified such that any part of a string contained within brackets is also removed (e.g. "NLGA High Street (West-Enfield), EN6" becomes "nlgahighstreeten")?
2. Can an argument be added to the format of the UDF, such that numbers (0 to 9) are either included or excluded (e.g. RemoveCharacters(A1,1) where the argument ´1´ would include any numbers (0 to 9), so "NLGA2003 High Street (West-Enfield), EN6" becomes "nlga2003highstreeten6")? ´blank´or ´0´would exclude these numbers, i.e. would return "nlgahighstreeten"
Remove The Word
how to automatically remove the word " Total" that Excel puts beside what you are totalling while using a subtotal?
For example, I am totaling a value of orders for one company and Excel puts "COMPANY NAME Total". Or is there a way to use the Right function to delete the 5 last letters of text in a cell? I've tried using the right function but can't seem to get it to work to delete text...
Remove Certain Duplicates ....
Is it possible to scan through column A for duplicates if found delete the row that has not got any data in either column D E or F? If Duplicates are found and neither have any data in D E or F Delete all but one of the duplicates.
I have a sheet that looks like this.
JOE D.02082008/28/199 H PAnnual Increase06/05/2006
JOE D.02082008/28/1995 H PReclassification06/11/2007
JOE D.02082008/28/1995 H PReclassification02/11/2008
The name is in Column F the employee Number is the 020820 and we want to only have the latest date in the last column.
So out of this data above. The bottom one with the 2/11/2008 is the one we want to keep.
And delete those other 2.
The next group has duplicate names 10 of them. But only want to keep the most recent.
Remove The Sheet
I am looking to remove the daily expenses summary sheet and continue to use the expenses detail sheet, but on the main weekly business sheet where you enter the financials, I need the expenses line to contain expenses for each day.
It is my intention to simply enter monday in the day colum in the expenses detail sheet and in the weekly business sheet it would pick this up.
So the formula I had was =ifsum(!expenses detail a2:a40, !expenses detail monday, e2:e4) This formula is giving me a name error.
Am I using the wrong formula. Basically I want this type of formula so under the expenses row for mon-sun it will add this up.
Remove The Spaces
I am trying to remove spaces in front of a number (currently formatted as text)
I have tried "Text to Columns", "Trim", and other suggestions in previously threads.
I have copied bank statement amounts from an e-mail and the $ amounts have one Space in front of them. When I use the Trim function, and then a paste special, I still cannot get rid of the space, and so cannot add up the amounts in this column.

I want to remove the % since these aren't actually percentages, the report we pull from has them listed incorrectly and cannot be changed since it is software driven, not excel driven. The problem is simply remove the % changes the number to 38.66 instead of leaving it at 3866.

About To Remove #VALUE! Error
I Want to remove "#VALUE!" error but I do not want to remove "-" sign. I want "-" sign to be treated as "0".
I also cannot use "sum" formula due to some reason & the value can be changed.
Can anyone suggest a formula that will take a number (a variable amount of placeholders), and remove any trailing zeros.
eg. 6000 = 6, , 23 = 23, 230 = 23, 2300 = 23, 23000 = 23
Also looking for a similar forumla that will strip off any numeric characters from a text string of variable length.
eg ACA2343 = ACA, GNVC23 = GNVC, DAL12 = DAL, CGHJ = CGHJ, CGHJ5002 = CGHJ
I am trying to find the solution for the problem I faced after downloading the "Color Filter" utility from this forum (Handle Duplicates & Color Filter)
I really do not understand why I was banned. I've downloaded utility from THIS forum and have kindly asked help on how to remove it because it does not meet my needs. I am not an expert in VBA and expected that somebody could help me. (It looks like the person providing the utility in the above indicated post shared the password as everybody is thanking him but I don't see where it is!)
I just want to remove the utility from my PC!!! And, if I can do this without bloody password than I do not want it! But, can somebody just explain me if there is another way to remove this from my PC or I have to reinstall EXCEL ?
I must say that I find it really increadible for beeing banned twice for no reason. Isn't it worse to place the password protected utility so that the one dowloading it cannot remove it anymore?

I have 2 .xls documents with customer contact information. One has a list of old contacts I need to remove which is about 3k this list contains only email addresses. The other contains the full list of Customers this list is about 11k this contains everything from first/last name to billing and email addresses.
My goal is to double check to see which addresses are just typos and which are non-working.
I will need to go through the list line by line but better to only go through 3000 than 11000. So, I need to somehow remove all of the good addresses from the full list using the bad address list which is only 3k long.
Any suggestions on where to start?

Remove Trailing Commas
Removing Trailing Commas
I have a list (general ledger) GL codes with trailing commas
When I try to use “replace” and replace the multiple commas with nothing it turns my gl codes into a scientific number (1.23456789123456E+26), but my cell is formatted to text.
The other problem is for numbers with a single trailing comma, it would also remove the commas between the GL codes
Is there a function that removes trailing commas, or commas that are not followed by numbers?
Remove Duplicate Addresses
I have 2 issues i am trying to work through, i have a spreadsheet with 3 data sheet tabs, the first issue i have is in Data sheet 1 I have a lot of duplicate addresses, I was wondering if there is a way to filter out the duplicate addresses so that only one of each address is showing.
Issue 2 that i have is a lot more complicated, In data sheet 1 i have a list of medical providers that reimburst at 110% or more, each address on that list needs to get 1 letter mailed to them, but i have to keep track of how many are going to each region, i.e. Columbus, OH region, Cincinnati, OH Region, Toledo, OH Region, and Cleveland, OH region. So what i want to do is create a 3rd data sheet that keeps track of total letters sent by region, but was wondering if it was possible for this info to be automatically transfered from data sheet 1 to data sheet 3. I don't need all the information in data sheet 1 to tranfer to data sheet 3. All i need is for data sheet 3 to read off the City field in data sheet 1, and calculate 1 letter sent to that region.
I dont even know if this is possible, but it is way beyond my realm of excel knowledge which isn't much.
Any help would be appreciated. I am trying to attach the spreadsheet, however it isn't allowing me to attach it, i keep getting a database error, when i upload it. It is under the max size limit too. Not sure what's going on.
Remove Autoshape Line
I have a shared document I created. In has been in use for 4 months with no problems. This last month, 3 other individuals not very cognizant with Excel were using the document. One of these individuals placed a 'line' in the document. It appears that they used Autoshapes to draw the line.
I want to remove the line they have drawn. It sounds like a simple problem, but I've tried:
* Edit, Clear, All
* Edit, Cut
*Right Click the 'line', Format AutoShape, under Colors and Lines, change Line Color to No Line
* Delete a series of rows with the line in the middle row,
Everything I’ve tried to eliminate this line is not working and this is very frustrating. This type of 'line formatting' is rampant in the department and has appeared in multiple documents, which I've had to recreate.
I'm not sure what they did, so I'm not sure how to correct this issue. I'm presuming they used AutoShapes. There are two small white circles - above and below the line. And a small green circle above the top white circle that has circular arrows surround it....perhaps a rotate feature.
