Is there any lock/security option in excel sheets, suppose we make some table/list and after entering one data when the cursor goes to second raw, the previous raw data automatically lock. the user cannot edit or delete that record.
I want to accomplish something like this but slightly different:
I have the same issue but a bit more complex. In my case I have an additional amount of columns (let's say dimensions). So for the example given (sales per month) I would add two columns for 4 different regions and 5 machine types (just examples).
The output (that would serve as pivot tabel input) would then have to be a 4 x 5 x 12 x 4 = 960 row database table.
I have tried to accomplish it by customizing the given code but that provedto be beyond my powers ;o)
and some 3rd party software [url]and [url] but non of them is doing what I'm looking for.
The code I'm looking for ideally would count the number of columns and unique records per column and construct the database table from that. So I am looking for flexibility in the number of dimensions also...
I'm opening a non-excel file in excel and it formats it into a series of rows/columns. The problem I have is that it doesn't consolidate all related data in the same row, for each new column of data it breaks into a separate row. I'd like to easily roll it all up into a single row.
I've attached a sample file to illustrate. The "Original" sheet is what I'm starting with and the "Final" sheet is what I hope to condense the data into.
I have a pretty vast database which I populated through VBA from a certain number of worksheets. I now need to create a table which shows min, max and average for each location given x, y or z condition. So far I only approached it by creating a secondary table with each range address and then using INDIRECT, but this would require extra work on the database (insert a function to sort out locations alphabetically and within each Range.Location sort out by conditions (note. A, B and C are not in alphabetic order)) and is also very ugly.
I have a spreadsheet with 15,000 rows x 15 more columns, i would like to find out the number of delivery for each single order.
The database similar as below :-
Order No. Delivery Date Product 12345678 01.01.2009 TV 12345678 01.01.2009 DVD PLAYER 12344568 02.01.2009 TV 14567892 03.01.2009 RADIO 14567892 04.01.2009 RADIO 14567892 31.12.2008 BLUE RAY 15465879 06.01.2009 MP3
1)what excel function should I use in order to find out the number of delivery since there are so many duplicate records in the database.
I've posted an example workbook that has sheet1 as how the data comes and sheet2 as what I need it to look like (through some kind of automatic process). I really don't have a clue as to how to get this done, and I'm guessing some VBA is going to be required.
I have a sheet that will not let me use macros. I can record them, but when I go to use them it says that the Macro security level is too high. I change it to Medium or Low but it doesn't make a difference.
The same spreadsheet works with Macros on another computer, but not my main one.
I want to build a pivot table on database that is not centralize in one place.
every month the new data is insert in a new sheet (of course with the same fields names) But the wizard, refuse to build a pivot table from data that is not concentrated in one place. (My intention is not the option: "Multiple Consolidation Ranges".)
I have an excel spreadsheet in which I must sort the data by program and then activity code. From that I need to know the number of consumers by activity code and their total units. I must then graph this by program. I have been debating on whether to use an excel pivot table, break the data in to multiple spreasheets to then graph it or shoud I upload the file into access.
I would like not to have to update the source data for the pivot table in my database. I've read that you can solve this by using a Dynamic Named Range and using that as the source for the pivot table. That way the pivot table will expand as new data is added to the database. The formula I used to create the DNR is:
i have a excel file which has a formatted pivot table which displays customers by country in row A 2 down to 36 with approx 36 customers in the values field i have volumes by alarms and tickets along the column labels it shows the previous 7 days with date and then the alarms and tickets in each row. My problem is i am trying to find the code or location where i can change the only bring back 7 days data to another value. i have searched all connection properties and definitions. I know there is a value somewhere that allows you to change this number to say from 7 days to 30 days. If you click on the column labels for date it shows the dates back 3+ years but it still if i tick more than 7 days only show 7 in the table.I have image if needed
I have a sheet with products down the side, and dates across the top. Numbers will be entered at an intersection between dates and products to represent quantity. Whenever there is a non-blank value for the quantity, I need to copy the products, dates, and quantity into a traditional database format. I have attached the original data format I get from suppliers on when they will deliver, and then show a separate tab for "Desired Result"
I am currently working on a project for college. I have downloaded an example from a website and want help editing some vb code so I can use it in my project.
I have attached the example. As you see there is an input worksheet and the record of what you have already entered. The vb code takes some information from the system such as time and date and the user. All I want it to do is that it takes data from 5 cells I have.
I have a database which shows members details with a colour system for varying levels of payment. I want to copy the membership number title and name from this d/base to another worksheet in the same w/book so I can print it in a4 size and select the page breaks. I think this is achieved by some thing called "concactia"??
Its really hard to explain. See the attached.. Basically I have kind of a database of Letters and each letter has several codes associated with it, although each letter is different (a few are the same but that's irrelevant), e.g. letter E means you need to use codes 3.1, 3.2, 3.3, 3.4, 3.5, 3.6, 3.9, and 3.10. That information is stored elsewhere. I simply want a user to be able to put that letter into this box and next to it these codes will populate.
I want to find the corresponding Disc Codes from a list and copy them in the DiscName column in the summary sheet. some lab names will have more than one Disc codes so when I run the macro it should bring up all the relevant Disc Codes matching with the Lab name to DiscName column.
Col 1 col 2 col 3 Lab name Disc Name(say abcd) xxxx yyyy zzzz ppppand
The list looks something like this.
Col 1 Col 2 Lab name Disc nameabcd xxxxxabcd yyyyyabcd zzzzzabcd pppppbcda qqqqqbcda rrrrrbcda iiiiibcda jjjjjbcda kkkkk
I have a database that has outgrown excel (over 77,000 rows now) so i now have it in Access. I want to replicate the following situation I used to have using lookups in excel with a query to the Access database: Paste a list of identifiers into an excel sheet. Values corresponding to the list are returned from the database in adjoining columns. The list can be from 10 to 300 cells long an returns data in 14 columns. I have had a go with the Import external data wizard which generates a query but have not been able to work out how to base the query on a list of cells in excel and have the query return values for each of the identifiers in the list.
Currently I have a database in an Excel template. After a user creates a new workbook from the template, a macro button on sheet 1 brings up a window (a userform) to allow selection of items from the database sheet. The item selected is entered on sheet 1 by means of VLookup. That works fine, but to edit the database correctly it is necessary to open the template itself. This is not a user-friendly method.
I figure the best way to solve this dilemma is to separate the template from the database. That is, make the database sheet into a workbook. This I've done. Here's the problem: What code is there that links the list box in the userform (of the template) with the closed database workbook? Is it even possible? If a file path type code is required, it may work on my computer, but when I use my template and database on another computer, the code doesn't work.
Another problem, and similar is this: I'd like to be able to have a macro button that opens the database from the new workbook (which was created from the template) in order to edit the database. If having a template seems to be my problem, I must have it since each workbook created from it is a different project.
I have set up a simple form in excel, whereby people use drop down menus to select the appropriate information (as all data inputted needs to be entered in exactly the same way to allow sorting, counting etc) so I thought drop downs were best. The trouble is the data is carried through to my excel database (on another worksheet) were it is shown in numeric values dependant on how far down the drop down list the select item appears (ie "Fareham" is third on the list, so shows in the database as "3").
I'd very much like my database to be easier to read and actually show Fareham etc, rather than be populated with lots of numbers. I initially tried using IF function (ie =IF(C3=3,"Fareham") but unfortunately two of my drop down lists are too long for this (with 25 and 33 entries respectively).
I am a Microsoft Excel 2010 user and am trying to create a usage report for a website that I work on. I have been compiling the usage reports into one spreadsheet. The columns I use are Month, Device, Language, Title 1, and Title 2. I can filter each of these rows and it shows me the number of records found. Each row on this spread sheet refers to a time that someone selected something on the site. For example the row may say;
Month (filtered) Device (Filtered) Lan (filtered)
How do I automatically populate a table on a separate sheet with the number of records found for a certain combination of filters applied. So if I'm looking at monthly trending I want to know how many times the stress test was started in May, June, or July, but automatically using info from the multiple filters.
What is a formula I can use to compile the filtered data from above.
I am currently trying to create a database of products for my company. For each product I would like to include an image associated with it. I then want to have on another sheet a place where the user will click an error and be able to cycle through the products. As tehy cycle the associated image will pop up.
What I need to understand is after importing the image into excel, how do I associate that image to a cell so I can reference it in another sheet of the database. I am not concerned with how large the database will get, my pictures are quite small.
I've used a countifs, but I'm having trouble doing a sum in a similar way. I have 2 databases and I will try to explain below. I need the to sum the values of database 1 if the second database is >= 20. So the value I would expect on this example would be 900. I would also like to be able to highlight which ones are elliminated. Such as coloring the text red.
I am attaching a worksheet which shows what I would like to see. I am having difficulty writing the formula. The database I have is a list of forex trades. Each trade is made at a specific time, and involves a specific currency pair (such as EURUSD). I want to summarize the trades in a table which sums up a week's trades for each pair. (see worksheet).
Using a pivot table, I'm linking to an external data source in ACCESS. I use the pivot table wizard, select the database (spend2008.mdb), and then ONE table that is not in a relationship/linked etc, its just a plain table, and then I get the error
"The Microsoft Office ACCESS database engine cannot find the input table or query "mdb.summary". Make sure it exists and that its name is spelled correctly".
This is new spreadsheet, so new join to the data. I'm selecting the table from the Query Wizard, so not possibility of a spelling mistake. I've been all through the database to make sure I haven't set a link or relationship. There are a total of 4 tables in in the DB that are related, but I've deleted the relationships
