Stop Procedure Window Changing When Changing Sheets

Sep 9, 2007

Moving between different sheets changes the procedure window, which is a good thing, but can also can be error prone and annoying to search through several windows searching for the procedure or module currently working on. Is there a setting somewhere to prevent VBE from changing the current procedure window?

Changing Time Window Data To Allow Ascending Viewing?

Apr 25, 2014

I receive data for time windows on jobs. my issue is 10-11 time frames appear before 8-9 time frames when I move data into a Pivot Table. This happens because the data I receive does have "08" signifying 8 so the "1" in 10 causes the 10-11 to appear before the 8-9. Is there a formula I could use to make this change? Currently if I want to view items in sequential order I have to go into the file and add a 0 before any jobs that start at 8 or 9am

How To Stop Random Numbers Changing

Mar 1, 2012

I generate a range of random numbers in column C. Then I perform another task and then copy the randoms numbers in the range c4:c(some row) into another sheet.

But the two columns are not the same? I want to copy the same random numbers into the other sheet.

Stop #REF! Occurring When Changing Spreadsheet

Jun 3, 2008

Is it possible to stop the #REF! error appearing in my formulae when I make a change to my spreadsheet? I have some complicated spreadsheets that take a lot of re-building whenever I need to make changes because of the #REF! error. I tried turning off automatic calculation and that seems to work, until you calculate, then the errors appear. I find myself copying formulae into a text file and then re-pasting back into the spreadsheet after making the changes - there's gotta be a better way! (Using Excel 2003).

How To Stop Linked Cell Destination From Changing

Oct 30, 2013

This is the current layout I have:

Sheet 1: A1:B20, is linked to Sheet 2: A1:B20.

I need to copy and paste data from the internet into Sheet 2, but it's not in the correct order, so I must swap column A and column B in Sheet 2 only. The problem with this is that when I swap them, the linked cells swap as well, which destroys my data on Sheet 1 columns C-Z.

Is there a way that I can keep the cells on Sheet 1 completely static, so that it only reads the data I put into the corresponding cell on Sheet 2?

Or maybe, is there a way I can just swap the cell information in Sheet 2 without messing around with the formatting? Just a complete swap of A1>B1 and B1>A1?

Stop Macro From Changing Range In Formula

Jul 6, 2006

If I have a formula that uses cells that are currently blank - and then run a macro that puts data into those cells - the original formula cell ranges change - even if I put $ within the ranges.


Cell A1 has formula = sumproduct(e1:e10>10)
Currently cells E1:E10 are empty

Run the macro

E1:E10 now has data in.

But formula in cell A1 now reads something like =sumproduct(E13:E23>10) or could read =sumproduct(Ref#>10)

Changing Calendar Start And Stop Dates

Jun 20, 2007

The company I work for does not use the usual calendar dates and uses a modified calendar. As an example, the month of January is Dec 31 thru Jan 27, February is Jan 28 thru Feb 24 and so on. I need to group data using a pivot table and summarize data by month, but as I just described above, calendar months will not work. Is there a way to modify what Excel sees as monthly dates?

Stop European Date Format Changing

Jan 21, 2008

I have a userform which is used to update a spreadsheet.

There are 7 textboxes which add dates to the spreadsheet. These dates are then used in formulas.

Every time a record is saved the date format changes.

Ths means that if the date is entered dd/mm/yyyy it writes mm/dd/yyyy and this is fine. When this record is next retrieved it will show mm/dd/yyyy and any new date will be dd/mm/yyyy.

Wen saved to the spreadsheet both formats change meaning the dates in the spreadsheet appear in diffrent formats messing up all formulas.

How can I stop the date format changing each time the record is saved?

Stop Excel From Changing Numbers To Dates In CSV File?

Jun 6, 2005

When opening a .CSV created from a third party software, one of the columns is converted to date format. The numbers are imported in #/# format. and Excel changes most of the numbers to 2-Jan, 3-Jan etc... This would not be that big of an issue if I could simply set it back. Clearing format or changing to text converts it to a 5 digit number.

The only way I have found to get it to work properly thus far is to open a blank sheet and import data and setting the column to text prior to import.

I would like to find a way of opening the CSV file without all the extra steps. Is there a setting that can be turned off?

I have referenced data in two colums on a sheet A and B. Column A contains the latest data, each month i insert new column (moving column A to column B). However all of my references continue to follow the original data (eg will change from column A to column B). this happens despite using Absolute references. (=$A$1). Is there a way to lock these cell references to only ever display column A etc?

How Do You Stop Changing The Date Format During Find And Replace?

Aug 26, 2009

When I remove "Release date:" from "Release date:24 December 2008," excel will automatically change the text to "24-Dec-08." Yes, I did try to format the column to "text" before using find and replace.

This wouldn't be a problem, except that half the dates are in Dutch, so only half the dates are changed, which means that I can't make all date formats in a column uniform.

Stop Formula Cell Reference Changing When Copying

Nov 1, 2006

I am trying to cut/paste a row of formulas in my spreadsheet. The problem is that I want some of the referenced cells in the formula to stay CONSTANT and not increment on each new row. In this example, I want the references to row 17 (F17,E17) to increment (E18,E19,...), but I want the "G7" reference to remain hard coded (as G7) on each row I paste (because that is where my master value is). (The formula is working fine) =IF((F17>0),IF((F17<=G7),E17,0),0)

Excel 2007 :: Stop Links Changing When Use SaveAs To Create Backup?

Sep 25, 2013

I have two spreadsheets that are linked in Excel 2007. They both hold very different information about the same projects, so each row shares some information. However, they are both very large and I do not want to combine them in case the whole spreadsheet becomes unusable. I'm not allowed to use a database

When I save Spreadsheet 1 in a different location, so that I have a backup of the precious data, the link in Spreadsheet 2 changes to show that new location. I want the link to stay at the old location.

Is there a way to stop the link changing when I use SaveAs, so that when I open Spreadsheet 2 it refers to the original location of Spreadsheet 1?

Changing Sheets Depending On Dropdownbox

Feb 23, 2009

I have bunch of sheets lets call them

Germany, France, Belgium, Poland, Russia, Data

In the data sheet I have in F1 "Germany", F2 "France", H1 "Belgium", H2 "Poland", H3 "Russia"

In each of the sheets (appart from data) I have a validation list in cell D6 listing the data sheet values F1,F2,H1,H2,H3.

Now basicaly what I need is when I select Germany from the list it would take me to Germany sheet, when I select Belgium from the list it would take me to Belgium sheet etc.

Basically the sheets have always same name as the name in the list. I know i can write the code in individually but because I have a lot of these I was hoping there might be an easier way?

Stop Graph From Changing Named Range To Formula Range

Sep 8, 2006

I am trying to create a graph for a range of data that updates monthly (adding an extra month each time). I wanted the graph source data to update automatically each time the data is refreshed so used an OFFSET formula to identify a named range. I then point the graph to the named range as the source data.

When I enter the range as the source data the graph picks it up. However, when I re-enter the source data option on the graph it has converted the named range into a cell written range (ie. replaces "=QUALITY" with "='Front page'!$B$7:$J$10" - which therefore will not update when the range increases.

Stop Formula Column Reference Changing On Insert But Not Row Reference

Mar 6, 2008

A 'Days Attended' cell (N8) and a 'Days Absent' cell (O8). N8 needs to count the number of "Present" values there are on another worksheet. The other worksheet has dates across the top and names down the side.

When i use
=COUNTIF("Attendance!C9:Z9", "Present"),
and the next date comes along the formula changes to
=COUNTIF("Attendance!D9:AA9", "Present")

ie. the reference moves a column across - the new date's absent or present is not counted. Using =COUNTIF(INDIRECT("Attendance!C9:Z9"), "Present"). is no good because when i add a new name i need the row reference to move down as a row is inserted. ie. both person's formulas count the same row. So, my question: I need the columns to stay the same - C:Z (leyway for future dates) and the rows to change as i insert or delete people from the system.

Sheet Indirection. Refer To Sheets With Changing Names

Feb 25, 2008

I've been referencing sheets in my code directly with things like

Sheet1. Range(NamedRange)

however in recreating a new workbook (to reduce bloat), the sheet-numbering has changed... to avoid having to mess around adjusting things again, I was wondering if it's possible to do some sort of indirection... something similar to

#define SHEET_SC_CONFIG Sheet1
#define SHEET_CUSTOMER Sheet2

'and then use these throughout the code....

(cannot reference by sheet name, as end user may change these)

VBA Select Multiple Sheets Of Varied/Changing Sheet Names

May 18, 2006

How can I select sheets in a workbook based on the premise that the sheetname does not have the letter "Q" in it? New to forum, so apologies if format is not kosher.
I have a group of 50+ workbooks which are all set up in the following format:

-Contains 30+ sheets.
-Sheet names are varied, but follow a pattern. I try to keep the sheet names consistant on all workbooks so that it is easier to reference, but other users make this impossible.
-However, I managed to keep two things consistant: There are two categories of sheets. In one group all sheetnames have a "Q" in them and in the other group all sheetnames DON'T have a "Q" in them.

Here is my problem: I need to run a macro to perform retative tasks on the GROUP OF SHEETS WITHOUT A "Q". To begin the macro I need to select these sheets and copy them to a new workbook, but since the actual sheetnames are varied, I am having trouble coming up with a flexible way of selecting sheets. The closest I have come is using a IF ... LIKE ... THEN statement, but I can only get it to work to select the sheets with a "Q" in the name and not the opposite.

Copy / Paste Frequently Changing Data From 4 Sheets Into One Master Data Sheet

Jul 4, 2012

I have a workbook that includes 4 seperate sheets that are used to record time and expenses for 4 members of staff. I want to write a macro to select the data I need from each sheet and colaberate together in a 'data' sheet so I can combine all the info to run time and expense reports per client showing combination of all time and expense incurred from all 4 staff.

I have named cell ranges in each of the 4 time-sheets. I proceed to record a macro, select the first named range, copy and paste into my data sheet, do a control home then control down arrow, then one more down arrow to get to the first blank cell and repeat the process for all four time-sheets.

This works until I add a new line and then the data will only appear for the last time-sheet (last row of data).
