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.

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!)

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"?

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.

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

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´).

Option Explicit

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)
End If
Next intLoopCounter
End Function

Two requests:

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 Add-in
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?

Remove Entries In Col A That Appear In Col C
Hello all, I was wondering if anyone would be able to help with a macro or even formula that would remove the entries in Col A that appear in Col C. Attached is an example with dummy data, Col D is how the list should be. If a number appears in A but not C then all instances of it should be kept, conversely if it is in C but not A then it does not need to be kept. Most importantly I need to be able to delete those that appear in both by the same number of times they appear in C.

Hope this all makes sense. Please feel free to ask if it is not clear.

Remove 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.

Macro: Remove The Row
I have the following macro that deletes a row. i also have a macro the inserts a row. my end users can basically insert of delete rows on a standard entery form, as they need. my question is about the deletion macro code. Currently the user can click on the "delete a row" button on the sheet and remove row after row after row. If they get overzealous they can actually begin to delete a row which they need for other data. I am wondering if i can make it so i have a permenant number of rows, say three, and if after that the button is pressed to delete another row, nothing happens.

Sub RemovePersonnel()
With Sheets("DOR")
.Unprotect Password:="techedit"
.Protect Password:="techedit"

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.

4. Sort the data alphabetically by Chapter

5. Create seperate Excel files for each Chapter ...

Remove Those 0 Values, #Num!
There are 2 sheets in the file attached.

-Data : Contain all the acc number and balance.
-Working : a sheet for my working to derive what I want . A string contain all the Acc Number

Bascially first I will paste and copy the acc number and balance from an external source to Data, then I wan to create a string of all the acc. This is done by the working from my Working Sheet.

In my Working Sheet, first It will take the value from the Data Sheet. Since the number of Acc / Balance may differ, I wan to know how to remove the 0 and #Num! for those null values.

Following that, I create a column sorting the all number from smallest to biggest, following by next column forming up the string. I do not want the same Acc to repeat in the string.

Remove Add-In In 2007
I've been sent a document by a client which has come with an add-in which has automatically installed itself into the Ribbon. It's on the Add-In tab (obviously!) and the Command Group is named 'Custom Toolbars'. What's annoying is once I close the document, the Add-In stays there and I have a redundant tab with an irrelevant Command Group .

Now, I've done a bit of searching and how found a number of websites that give instructions on add-ins. However, the add-in that has come with the client's document isn't on the list and hence I can't remove it. I need to do to get rid of this? I've contacted the client, but they're suspiciously quiet about the whole thing.

Add Lookup Via VBA & Remove #N/A
I have two workbooks. One is a database (funding.xls) with many columns - the unique identifier in column C (deal number). The other is a workbook (operational report.xls) for which a worksheet ("Not Yet Finalised Deals") is emailed to me daily and lists the unique identifier (deal number) in column C and a code assigned to that deal number in column G. Sometimes there may be only one or two deals on this spreadsheet, other times up to twenty. What I want is a macro which can be run off the funding.xls database (preferably - although the code below runs off operational report.xls) which inputs the Code from Column G of operational report.xls into column AL of the funding.xls database if the deal number is the same. I have written the following, but it kills Excel. I presume this is because it loops for so long, but doubtless you will find many errors/overkill of references in it

Private Sub ISIN_Click()
'Updates the data sheet for the ISIN codes given
Answer = MsgBox("Is funding.xls Open for WRITE access?", _
vbOKCancel, "Yes")
If Answer = vbCancel Then Exit Sub ' the macro ends if the user selects the CANCEL-button
Dim Row_No As Integer
Dim Counter As Integer
Dim keep_going As Boolean
Dim Ref_No As Variant
Dim ISIN As Variant
Row_No = 2
Counter = 2

Sort/Remove Script?
Hey guys, I'm from a Laptop Repair Company. Sorry to barge in here and ask for help randomly, but any suggestions would be greatly greatly appreciated. I post mostly on Actionscript forums to help others using AS3.0, so if you have a question there I could definitely help you lol

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?
