Slow Update Of Edited Links

Sep 26, 2008

My business has a significant number of Excel sheets interlinked. One of them has about 10.000 links to about 60 files. Those 60 files are within a sub-folder and once a quarter the business needs to replace all 60 files with a new set. To establish this, they replace the sub-folder name in the link with the new name. To do this on 10.000 links takes about 72 minutes because Excel seems to open up a file for every updated cell. We tried to stop this by changing Excel to calculate manual, disabled "Update remote reference", but this didn't improve anything.

We have similiar issue when opening/updating the master file - it takes around 3 mins.

Besides that a proper database is certainly better for this requirement, is there anything we can do to improve the performance of the replace method. I was thnking about stopping Excel from validating/updating each single cell and after everything has been replaced to do it in one go without Excel opening and closing 10.000 times a file.

Workbook Slow Down

Mar 30, 2009

I have a workbook made up of worksheets containing source data, pivot tables and charts but it is now becoming very slow since I have added a worksheet with many formulas.

If I move that worksheet containing many formulas (20 columns by 150 rows) to a different workbook will that help speed both of them up? The formulas will obviously still by referring to the original workbook.

Or is it simply by using formulas it slows things down whatever you do and I will have to think of a clever way of using pivot tables instead? Are there any other things that could be slowing it down? Other workbooks I maintain are fine.

Workbook Slow To Open

Jul 8, 2009

I have searched the forums re my issue and have not found a relevant solution. I have a large workbook 19MB in Excel 2007. There are 400 sheets and each sheet contains various formulas and one macro. The only graphics on each sheet are color coding of some cells. The workbook takes 2minutes 55 secs to load. Once open there are no issues. Is there a reason why this is so slow or do I just have to accept that being a large file it will take this long. There is no issue with HD space or RAM as the laptop is only used specifically for this workbook. Running Intel Core 2 Duo, 160 HDD, 2mb ram.

Using VBA To Update Workbook B Extracting Data From Workbook A

Mar 27, 2014

In order to do the tests, I'm using 2 simplified workbooks (test_copy and test_paste).

What I'd like to be able to do, once I click a button UPLOAD (creating the button isn't the problem), is to go to the first cell from workbook test_copy, check if that code is already on test_paste and if not add it to the bottom of the list, repeating the same cycle for each code on the workbook test_copy.

The orders of the codes might change on both workbooks differently depending on the way the columns are sorted. That is why I believe that for each code in test_copy I need to check the entire column in test_paste to check if the code already exists.

At the end of the routine, on the example below, we would have the codes 2670, 2676 and 2626 added to the end of the list on test_paste.

Speed-up Slow Macro Code: Entries In Column 73 - 85 Will Be Copied From WorkbookRust To The Other Workbook If The Numer In Column 5 Is The Same

Mar 25, 2008

my existing macro, as the run takes to much time to complete. (at least 20min) I've already tried several loops, but no one worked for me. Following situation: There are two excel files, entries in column 73 - 85 will be copied from WorkbookRust to the other workbook if the numer in column 5 is the same. Not every cell within this columns contains data, so the macro should automatically jump to the last entry in each of the above mentioned columns, instead of predefine the range as you see in the code below. After the data is copied to the other workbook, it will be filtered acc. to Sub FilterMain and then copied back to WorkbookRust. As already said, the whole thing works, just to lame.

Sub Allmacros()
Dim WorkbookRust As String
WorkbookRust = ActiveWorkbook.Name
ChDir "C:Documents and Settings vogtMy DocumentsRüstplausch"
Workbooks.Open Filename:= _
"C:Documents and Settings vogtMy DocumentsRüstplauschCH_Revenue_2008.xls"
Windows(WorkbookRust).Activate ActiveWorkbook.Name & "!UpdateEntries" ActiveWorkbook.Name & "!FilterMain"
'not ask to overwrite existing file
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
End Sub

Update A Workbook Based On Another Workbook?

Jul 17, 2013

I have 1150 workbooks with two sheets each. The workbooks are all named with employee names (SNUFFY,JOE.xlsx etc). The sheets in each workbook are for different years. Both sheets in each workbook are set up the same. The only differences are the values in cells. I just made another workbook where column A is a list of all 1150 employee names (SNUFFY,JOE etc). I want column B for each employee to show the values in say sheet 1 cell G1 of that employee's individual workbook, and column C to show the value in sheet 2 cell G1. How do I make that happen?

Automatic Update Of Workbook

Jan 13, 2012

What I'd like to have is one workbook, that 2 people can open and both people will see all changes that happen to the workbook.

As an example, there would be a Player 1 sheet and a Player 2 sheet. When you open the workbook you choose which Player you are and then it defaults to your sheet. You can then place your ships and start the game.

Each player would take it in turns to guess a square on the opponents board and then this selection would be sent to the other players sheet and updated automatically.

Most of it I think is quite easy to do - the only tough part being the updating process. Could I do it as 2 workbooks one for each player, (password protected to stop cheating!) and then when a move is made both workbooks are closed, the change is made and saved and the workbooks are re-opened?

Aug 15, 2008

1) If a worksheet is shared - is it not possible to edit it or make changes to certain fileds like drop down menu? eg call tracker.

2) Is it possible to have say 4 worksheet (call tracker) opened in 4 machines by 4 diffrent people - In such a way that whenever & whatever one person enters a data in his worksheet the data gets recorded in a common worksheet in say a fifth machine - however the data entered by all 4 people should get recorded in a systamatc manner without any overlapping. so that a fifth person sitting and viewing on the fifth machine can monitor the data real time. If yes how? I am a novice at excel.

Don't Update Links On Workbook Open

Aug 12, 2009

I have a workbook that has many cells that link to a server on the other side of the planet. If I manually open this workbook I get the "This workbook contains links to other data sources." And the option to "Update" or "Don't Update"

If I choose to not update, everything works great. If I choose to update, the worksheet takes 10-15 minutes to open. I have tried to go to tools-->options-->Edit and uncheck "ask to update automatic links" but this makes the default behavior updating. I want to open this workbook using a scheduled task and a batch file, and have it not update, and then run a macro. Any suggestions on how to do this?

Update Only One Worksheet From A Closed Workbook

Feb 25, 2009

I have code that links my existing workbook to a closed workbook. It works as planned but it goes to far. In my first workbook, the one containing the code, I may have up to 30 worksheets. If I am on Sheet5 I may need to run the vba code to update cells X:X only on Sheet5 but instead it updates cells X:X on all Sheets in the workbook. How can I keep this from happening?

I have asked this on another forum but it seems to be a difficult thing, perhaps impossible thing to keep from happening.

Update Workbook Open On Another Computer

Feb 26, 2007

Worksheet1 is modified on computer A. Worksheet1 is open on computer B. The instant something changes on Worksheet1 on computer A, Worksheet1 on computer B is updated.

Idea 1:Maybe worksheet1 on computer B could be opened read-only and then the notify feature could be used to trigger a macro in worsheet1 on computer B. By notify I am talking about the box that pops up when a user has finished modifying a worksheet to let you know you have read/write access.

Idea 2: Could all cells in worksheet1 on computer B be linked to all cells in worksheet1 on computer A and automate the updating somehow this way?

Update Code In The Workbook Module

Mar 15, 2007

I have multi- sheet workbook that opens to a specific ws and to a specific cell.

Application.Goto Reference:=Worksheets("Menu").Range("A1"), _

One of the several ws is a form; when the user saves it, all other ws are deleted and the wb is saved as a new file name. (Need to retain other macros for future functionality, seems easiest to just delete the unneeded sheets).

Is their a way to modify the sheet reference from "menu" to "sheet-name" (will be a constant). Because it is likely that additional sheets will be added in the future to this new wb, I'd like for it to open to a specific ws.

As my VBA skills are "in development" (basement level, just now), please provide a complete answer (assuming this can be done).

Update Workbook Name In Cell After Save As

Jun 6, 2007

I have a cell which uses part of the name of the workbook. This name is updated everytime I activate the sheet with this code (in the worksheet code section):

Private Sub Worksheet_Activate()
Range("Workbook_Name").Value = ""
If Mid( ActiveWorkbook.Name, 34, 1) > "" Then
Range("Workbook_Name").Value = Mid(ActiveWorkbook.Name, 23, 12)
End If
End Sub

Workbook_Name is a named range for the cell in which I want the truncated portion of the file name to appear.

Is there anyway to trigger an update using vba with the SaveAs event?
