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?
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).
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?
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?
I have attached a sheet that I'm having an issue with. Columns D and E on the Dim Calculator sheet have a data validation formula in the cell. It works in the sense that it pops up if they are outside the parameters that I want them to hit. However, if the user clicks the Cancel button they can just keep going on even though the entry in the cell is aganist the validation.
Example: Columns D and E cannot be larger than Column C. Currently now if Columns D or E are larger than Column C the validation error pops up. But I can just click on cancel and keep going. That is what I want to prevent.
Is there a way to grey out the cancel button?
Should I do something else within the validation itself?
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?
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.
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)
I have a template excel file that is loaded with macros. When the file is opened, a userform opens and the user makes several different selections. Based on the selections, the excel file is populated with information and pictures. I want to make sure that the user does not accidentally save over the template file when he/she is finished with the document.
My original solution was: when the user opened the excel file, it would automatically save under a different name in a temporary location. This would stop the user from being able to overwrite the source file. The users were not happy because the excel file is very large and takes a long time to save.
on another method to stop the user from overwriting the source file? using code? or another method?
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?
A Macro needed which will be assigned to a button,say “Check” and when the same will be clicked all the sheets will be say protected an users cannot modify any data. Another button will be there which will be assigned macro & when clicked will ask for a password to be known by only some administratives say departmental heads only and they can modify the data.Users after clicking the “Check” button,cannot modify the data.
Is it possible to write VBA code that will prevent a user from changing a cell's contents, depending on the cell's font color?
More specifically, I have a column of text in range B15:B64. Some of the cells will have a black font, others will be blue. Is it possible to lock the black font cells only, leaving the blue cells unlocked for users to change?
I have a Workbook that has 2 worksheets, one called CALL QUERY and one called CALL LOG. On the CALL QUERY sheet, cell D9 is a user inputted cell with the cell validation set to list. The user uses the dripdown list to pick an office identifier (3-Letter Code).
On the CALL LOG sheet, I have info about individual calls. Column E has the 3-letter office identifier for each call.
I am trying to find a way to automatically auto filter the list on the CALL LOG sheet with the user input in cell D9 on the CALL QUERY sheet.
I was given the following (N2 is a cell on the CALL LOG sheet that equals the user inputted cell D9 on the CALL QUERY sheet)
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.
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.
I am using a 2007 excel spreadsheet and on parts of it I can't just highlight one horizontal row of cells, it wants to highlight three down. I suppose that I have asked it to do this but I can't for the life of me undo it.
I have tried unmerging cells, cutting and pasting somewhere else, but nothing works.
Can anyone help me please as it's driving me to distraction?
I have this macro that adds whatever formula that is in L1 to the same cell down 66 rows. But it doesn't work like the way I want it to because it's stopping when it sees empty cells...so the problem is that my colum is actually completely empty...so how do I get it to stop when I want to?
Sub every66rows() Dim i As Integer i = 1 With Range("L1") Do Until IsEmpty(.Offset(66 * i)) .Copy .Offset(66 * i) i = i + 1 Loop End With End Sub
